Lifetime's dramas and movies are always entertaining and only sometimes realistic.

How to Watch Lifetime Online Without Cable

This may all seem a bit confusing, so let's clear some things up about how, exactly, we're going to get you a Lifetime live stream and help you watch Lifetime without cable.

Lifetime isn't free. But that doesn't mean that it should be bundled up with a bunch of channels you don't watch and sold to you as part of a bloated overpriced package from an inefficient legacy pay TV company. Luckily, some smart people agree with us on this, and they came up with a new type of pay TV: the live TV streaming service.

Live TV streaming services are sometimes called “skinny bundles,” because they tend to offer slimmed-down channel bundles that trim the useless stuff off of cable's bloated bundles. That trims the price, too, which is the first advantage of these live TV streaming services.

That's not the only advantage, though. These services also let you watch Lifetime without cable on almost any device you want. Since they deliver content over the internet, it's easy to send your Lifetime live feed to your iPhone, tablet, or computer — or, of course, to your big screen via a smart TV or streaming device.

Not every live TV streaming service includes Lifetime, but many do. Here are your best options for watching Lifetime without cable!

Stream Lifetime for free with Philo

Free Trial

Philo is another strong option for watching Lifetime without cable. This skinny bundle's appeal is due in a large part to its very attractive price point: Philo is much cheaper than the competition. Philo is growing fast, adding channels and platform support and threatening the skinny bundle old guard (to the extent that such a young business space has an old guard, of course!). You can learn more about Philo by reading our review. Check out Philo for free by taking advantage of the service's week-long free trial offer — the link is above.

Stream Lifetime for free with Hulu

Hulu + Live TV comes to us, naturally, from Hulu. You might know Hulu already from their streaming video on demand (SVOD) service, which works like (and competes with) the likes of Netflix. Hulu is making a mark in the live TV market, too, thanks to this strong skinny bundle. Hulu + Live TV offers a selection of great channels that includes a Lifetime live stream, perfect for watching Lifetime without cable. For more of our thoughts on Hulu + Live TV, just take a look at our Hulu review. For more of your own thoughts on Hulu + Live TV, you'll just have to sign up for the service's free trial.

Stream Lifetime for free with FuboTV

Using fuboTV to watch Lifetime without cable is a great option for cord cutters. fuboTV has become a strong entry into the competitive live TV streaming market since its 2017 re-launch.

Stream Lifetime with Sling TV

Try It

Sling TV is the service that lets you customize your skinny bundle. Starting with one (or both) of two base bundles, users can customize their final product by adding “extras,” which are little mini-bundles of channels grouped by category. That allows customers to pay only for the channels that they actually want to watch. Build a custom bundle and start watching Lifetime without cable! Read our Sling TV review to learn more.
