How to Watch Live TV on Apple TV

There are a lot of services that will allow you to watch live TV on Apple TV, but most of them fall into a few basic categories. The first few services on our list are live TV streaming services. Also called “skinny bundles,” these are pay TV services that offer live network television channels. That might sound like regular old cable, but you’ll certainly notice the difference when the bill comes.

The final few services on our list are sports league streaming services. The major American sports leagues (and some minor ones) have streaming services of their own, which, with a few exceptions, offer only content that is not airing on pay TV. In other words, expect to get every regular-season game except ones featuring teams in your market and ones that are nationally televised. For out-of-market fans, league streaming services are a fantastic option for streaming live TV on Apple TV.

    DirecTV Now is c***. It has constant buffering issues and error messages galore. Its on demand is slim pickings. Local channels are only available if you live in a market where that affiliate is owned by ABC, NBC, or Fox. CBS isn’t available at all. Just go on social media and you’ll read all the complaints about DirecTV Now and their lack of customer support. It’s not ready for prime time. Just consider it a couple for Apple TV if you pre pay 3 months.

    InstaTV + SiliconDust HDHR Connect have been great. Also, DTVNow has made incredible strides and works almost flawlessly for me.
