How to Watch GSN Online Without Cable

If you want to watch GSN without cable, you'll still need a pay TV service. But the good news is that pay TV services come in different types, and a relatively new one has opened the door to an affordable and cord-cutting-friendly way to get a GSN live stream.

We're talking about the “skinny bundle,” a new form of multichannel service that offers much of the same stuff that cable does while keeping things cord cutter-friendly and cost-effective.

Here's how it works. Instead of being delivered via traditional cable infrastructure, skinny bundles use the internet to stream live content. Think of them like Netflix, only for live TV. And they're also slimmer and more cost-effective than cable: they don't take advantage of regional monopolies to push bulky bundles, and instead opt for their eponymous “skinny” bundles, which give you just the good stuff for a whole lot less cash. Plus, skinny bundles make it easy to watch the content you want to watch almost anywhere and on almost any device.

In other words, skinny bundle are like cable – only cheaper and better. Not every skinny bundle will serve as a solution to the dilemma of how to watch GSN without cable, but there are a few that fit the bill. Let's check them out, shall we?

Stream GSN with Sling TV

Try It

Skinny bundles are a great idea, because they get rid of the dumb channels you don't want and let you pay only for what you actually want to watch — at least, that's how it works in theory. But what if your channel is one of the ones a skinny bundle cuts? Sling TV has a unique solution to that dilemma: They let you build your own skinny bundle.

You still start with a base package. But once that's in your shopping cart, you can stack on add-on bundles called “Extras,” which make little groups of like-minded channels available on the cheap. That allows each subscriber to built out a customized bundle that puts the emphasis where they want it, minimizing the cost of channels they don't watch.

      If you want to subscribe to a new service, the ones on this list will do. If you already have a pay TV service, try the “GSN Now” Roku Channel — you should be able to log in and watch shows and clips. To get a full live feed of the network, though, you’ll need either cable/satellite or one of the services on our list above. Hope this helps and thanks for reading!
