How to Watch E! Online Without Cable

E! is only available through pay TV services. But wait, don't get upset: not all pay TV services are as terrible and as expensive as cable and satellite. Let us explain.

There's a type of pay TV service out there called a live TV streaming service. This type of service is, well, exactly what it sounds like: a service that streams video over the internet, and that specializes in live TV from network television channels. You know — like E!

Live TV streaming services are sometimes called “skinny bundles,” because they feature slimmed-down selections of much-loved networks, rather than the bulky and fluff-filled bundles that cable and satellite like to specialize in. That brings down the price, as does the competition between these services (with none of the infrastructure concerns that plague cable, there are no regional monopolies in live TV streaming services).

All of that makes live TV streaming services a great way to watch E! without cable. Of course, to watch E! without cable on one of these services, you need to pick one that includes an E! live stream — which is why we listed out all of the best ones that do below. Read on!

    I can say honestly say YouTube tv is great. I gave up a lot. My only qualm is no A & E. I can live with everything else. But I would prefer to have A & E. Any hope of acquiring that channel?
