How to Watch Paramount Network Online Without Cable

Paramount Network is a network television channel, which means that (traditionally, anyway) it's part of the cable family — a native of legacy pay TV services.

But network television has grown up, and it's no longer limited to the cable and satellite bundles that first introduced us to our favorite channel. There's a new type of pay TV service on the block, and it's allowing us to watch Paramount Network without cable (and a whole lot of other channels without cable, too).

We're talking about live TV streaming services, which will dominate the list below. These services stream video over the internet, much like Netflix and other high-profile streaming services you may have heard of. But these services are doing so with live TV, something Netflix has never done. And the live TV channels these services offer are the familiar big network stations that you remember from cable and satellite.

There are, of course, differences between live TV streaming services and cable. For one thing, you'll be paying less. These new services are in a competitive market, with no infrastructure concerns around to create regional monopolies. And they also often offer slimmer bundles, which has earned them the sometimes-used nickname “skinny bundles.”

On top of that, these new services allow viewers to watch live TV on all sorts of devices. Using one of the live TV streaming services that offer a Paramount Network live stream will allow you to watch Paramount Network without cable on your Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, mobile device, or computer, to name just a few of your options.

Ready to meet the streaming services that will give you a Paramount Network live stream? Here's how to watch Paramount Network without cable.

  14. Avatar S. Smart says:

    Just want to post a warning – if you are an APPLE TV house (we are) – I would be VERY leery of trying SLING. We have had so many DVR experiences with them that stop half-way into the show. They say it is an Apple TV problem but we have zero problems with anything else. I spent several hours (even under protest – resetting router and taking down our entire automated house to try to fix their issue) – their tech support is pretty dismal. PHILO is almost half the price for better channels (except sports – which are pretty much non-existent right now anyway) and they are very reasonable and responsive.

      I like so many of the posting stated that they wanted Paramount TV. I found out the first week of July that I have it as a station on my cable service optimum. Don’t know how long that I have had the service. Looks like they have some good programing

  28. Avatar says:

    Paramount Network on YouTube TV PLEASE !!!

  29. Avatar V Ricci says:

    Sling decided to screw their customers and moved Paramount off of sling Orange and added it to what they call their comedy package for additional $$.
    Paramount was their best channel
    I’ll have to search for new provider

  30. Avatar Mike H. says:

    I still miss watching Smallville on UPN, but not long after the show ended the channel became part of the CW. I remember back in the 60’s and 70’s when the only TV was over-the-air and it was free, so all you needed was a TV, an outlet, and a good antenna.
