You miss only the shots you don’t take — and the games you don’t watch. Since skinny bundles let you stream your favorite live TV channels wherever you are, there’s no excuse to miss a match ever again. You’re probably used to streaming on-demand content by now — think Netflix, Hulu, and Disney Plus. Now imagine you can use a similar service but stream your favorite live TV channels, including NBC Sports. Skinny bundles let you do exactly that, and we’re here to tell you which ones offer NBC Sports without a cable subscription.
How to Watch CBS Sports Without Cable
Skinny bundles, or streaming services, get their name from their channel offerings. Instead of giving you hundreds of channels you’ll never touch, a skinny bundle gives you a narrower list but is more representative of the content you actually watch. Turns out that sometimes less is more! Now’s the time to cut those cable cords and start saving money with skinny bundles. You can watch NBC Sports using any of the following streaming services: DIRECTV STREAM, Hulu + Live TV, fuboTV, or YouTube TV. Check out all the details below.
Who would’ve thought you’d be watching your favorite sports on Hulu? Gone are the days when the streaming service had only a handful of movies and TV series. Now you can stream NBC Sports using Hulu + Live TV without signing a contract or worrying about installation costs. Determine if this skinny bundle works for your household by reading our Hulu + Live TV review.
You can probably tell from the name that fuboTV offers NBC Sports. The provider specializes in all things sports, but it also offers other content, including movies and even some reality TV shows. Sign up for the free trial or read our in-depth review of fuboTV for more information.
The place that brought you your favorite music videos can now also give the hottest games of the season. YouTube TV is another excellent provider with great perks such as no cable box or contracts. If you need more convincing about whether YouTube TV is an ideal service to stream NBC Sports, then find out more by reading our YouTube TV review.
Can I Watch NBC Sports on Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, or Chromecast?
The other benefit of skinny bundles is that you can take them on the go with you. You can use your laptop, cell phone, or other compatible devices to stream NBC Sports, which we’ve listed in the table below.
|Roku||Fire TV||Apple TV||Android TV||Chromecast||iOS||Android||Web browser|
|Hulu + Live TV||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes|

More to Stream for Fans of NBC Sports
NBC Sports is where you watch a variety of sports, from football to soccer to car racing — and everything in between. But if what you’re after is more specific, then we have some channels that may be a better fit.
MLB Network is your go-to for all things baseball. As you can imagine, the channel offers all the major games, as well as passionate commentary from personalities such as Yonder Alonso, Scott Braun, and Mark DeRosa. Learn how to watch MLB without cable.
If baseball isn’t your thing and you’d rather watch basketball, then we recommend NBA TV. The channel is the basketball equivalent of MLB Network, and you can also watch NBA TV without cable.

I think I just found my way to watch the Tour de France on NBCSN. Sling TV for 1 month in July, although I will have to look at the PlayStation Vue option if Sling does not offer a DVR option. It will kill me if I have to sit through all the commercials.
I can not watch NASCAR on NBC Sports using PlayStation Vue. I would like to know why?
I am using NBC Sports Gold, which is a stand alone app. You pick a sport such as cycling, rugby, or track and field, and pay for only that sport. The cycling pass includes many races that are not available on the regular NBC Sports network channel. There are no commercials.
I have a Roku Express connected to my HD TV. How do I watch NBC Sports without a cable or satellite provider? Would Apple TV work? I’m open to any ideas!
Gene, you can watch NBC Sports on your Roku Express using one of the services listed above. All of them have Roku channels.
How can you say you’re “cordcutting” or “getting a channel free” when you have to have cable or satellite and STILL pay up to $100 to get standard channels that you get with cable/satellite??? I cancelled my satellite Directtv because I was fed up with paying a ridiculous amount for tv with excessive commercials AND lousy service and equipment. Everyone of these channels with tons of commercials should be aired/streamed for free like ALL tv used to be. The original pay tv services (ON and Select Tv) had no commercials because you were paying a fee for the service. Now we pay and still get too many commercials AND get lousy service as well. I have a Roku Ultra and I have to say the equipment/remote leaves something to be desired (Little things like current time and date or being able to search for other programs while still watching the current program, etc.) I also think it’s completely disingenuous to claim you’re getting tbs or NBCsports etc. “free”. Having to pay Hulu (which used to be free) or Sling or whoever) to get the so called “free” channels is just a lie. In addition, you never mention the quality/user friendliness of the Roku etc. equipment or the customer service from each streaming provider (Roku is HORRIBLE by the way. I have found it is impossible to even get a live person in the USA with Roku even if you call the corporate office.), If you choose to have any channels, other than the truly free ones, or you want to watch sports or the major networks, you still end up paying too much. You can’t even listen to a sports radio broadcast over the internet anymore without having to pay for it (on top of the commercials). It really boils down to excessive greed on the part of the networks and sports teams/athletes. Personally, I refuse to pay to watch a bunch of over payed whiner athletes that won’t even respect the flag of the country that’s enabling them to become multi-millionaires playing a game. Since I live too far from over the air signal, the only free tv for me are a few channels that truly are free on Roku and my DVD collection. Guess I just need to read more.
Switch to t-mobile phone. MLB is free for year. TV & broadcast
I don’t even know where to begin as far as how wrong you are and some things. Put a little more effort into things and you will have in abundance of channels for free with the roku. Better yet ditch the Roku spent 35 box on a firestick and you’ll have even more.
You can download the nbcsports app on roku and watch for free as long as you watch it live. If you want to use the on demand function you have to pay for gold. I hate it myself as I have no way to dvr say motocross, but not having a 180 cable bill is worth being home to watch it live if I want.
I tried that, but it didn’t work. It seems that I still need to have a provider that I pay for — other than just Roku.
Totally agree. NBC SN doesn’t work even after downloading with Roku TV. You still need to confirm access code via a subscription channel provider.
good info thank you
Couldn’t have been said any better!
Can’t seem to get MotoGp without paying for a network provider since they are not part of the Gold package
hulu doesn’t have nbc sports. It’s a separate service for $60 big ones per month
GB, above, was right. “Cordcutting” means rejection of the bundling business model, not just moving cable services to the internet. NBC Sports is only available in a pricey bundle and should not be listed on this website. Or, the website should surrender the moniker “Cordcutting,” as, if you’re only taking that literally, you don’t understand what the term means.
Amen. And I have to pay $80/mo to Comcast for the cord the internet comes through….
Update your site. Sling just lost NBC Sports, effective 4/1/21.
The best option for watching NBCSN and other Top sports channels is “BCE Premium TV”. Their prices are so reasonable I highly recommend it.
They are scam. Half of their channels doesnt work. They are just a streaming website. There are other free streaming websites out there where you can get the same service like BCE for free. Half of the BCE channels keeps buffering when you try to watch any game or try to cast it to tv. They have no app to stream matches. And they show $20 for a month and charge you $30.
