How to Watch HLN Without Cable

Some people prefer audiobooks over books; others enjoy watching the news instead of reading newspapers. For this second group of people, HLN is a must. With a skinny bundle that lets you customize your channel list, you can enjoy all the shows the network has to offer without paying for a channel package you don’t fully use. If HLN is the channel you’re after, you can find it via these streaming services: DIRECTV STREAM, Hulu + Live TV, Sling TV, and YouTube TV. Find out more about these streaming services below.

Let’s be honest: Hulu had a limited selection back in the day. However, it isn’t the provider you used to know. Today, it has live TV streaming options that include HLN and all your other favorite shows. You can read our Hulu + Live TV review or check out the service for yourself  — new users can enjoy a free trial before they sign up.

Sling TV is the provider that fits like a glove.

More to Stream for Fans of HLN

While HLN is an incredible network, there are plenty of other channels offering the type of content you like to binge-watch. Below are a couple of other channels you may enjoy as an HLN fan.

One clear recommendation is CNN. The news network brings you the latest on world events and current affairs — similar to what you get from HLN in the early mornings. Shows like “Anderson Cooper 360” and “Declassified” will keep you informed for your next dinner party. Read our guide on how to watch CNN without cable for more information.

If you like HLN for its action-packed content, we highly recommend NBC. You can watch the news and other similar programming while also catching dramas such as “Law & Order.” Many of the channel’s offerings have a “ripped from the headlines” style  — make sure you don’t fall behind by learning how to watch NBC without cable.

    Hey Steven, great write up as always. One question: Why not mention the á la carte CNN Go app that can be downloaded to Roku/Fire Stick/others? I have been watching my content on HLN (I hate CNN) this way for years… They were one of the first to have an app. Yes, it requires a subscription, but PlayStation Vue, DirecTV Now, and others will allow for this.

    1. MAIRYM MARTINEZ says:

      Hi, how this works? I need to download CNN and pay for a subscription only for HLN??

  2. Kelly says:

    Thanks for the tips but HLN (Headline News) with Robin Meade isn’t on Hulu. I searched 3 different keywords spelling them all different. CNN has about 8 shows on Hulu, but no Robin Meade HLN. 🙁

    1. Cordcutting.com says:

      Kelly, Hulu with Live TV is Hulu’s live TV streaming service. It offers HLN and other channels.

    2. CKK says:

      Yes it is, I just searched “Meade” and her photo came up with her show. It had a padlock icon on it though because I don’t pay for live TV so I can’t watch it.

  3. Patty Mullins says:

    Ok what about YouTube cable-free tv. ? Will that work for HLN and how much?
