Here are a few of our favorite ways to stream The Price is Right:
The Price Is Right has had the same home for all of its existence. That home is CBS. CBS is a network you can get over the air with an antenna. This is helpful for reasons we’ll get to in a moment.
Before we do that, though, let’s talk about the primary way to watch The Price Is Right without cable: through a live TV service, also known as a “skinny bundle.”
Live TV streaming services have just about all of the same channels you can get through cable companies, but with much less hassle. There are no long-term contracts, and you won’t have to pay anybody to install anything. In fact, there’s really no installation at all. If you’ve got a decent home internet connection, you’ve got what you need to use a live TV streaming service.
Now let’s spin the wheel — sorry, I mean let’s get to the list. The list below starts with live TV streaming services, then discusses a couple of other options.
Watch "The Price Is Right" on DIRECTV Stream
The branding has changed, but your ability to watch CBS on this live TV streaming service has not. Once you get DIRECTV Stream, you’ll be ready to watch “The Price Is Right” online without cable in most markets. Our DIRECTV Stream review can tell you more about what the service is like.
Watch "The Price is Right" on Philo
Yes, you can watch “The Price is Right” with Philo, but there is one important caveat: Philo only offers GSN, not CBS. That means you can watch old episodes of “The Price is Right,” but not new ones. And in case this channel is new to you, GSN stands for Game Show Network.
Watch "The Price Is Right" on Hulu
Hulu + Live TV has come a long way, baby. As of late 2019, it had the most subscribers of any live TV streaming service. It also has a deal with CBS, which means you should be able to use Hulu + Live TV to watch episodes of “The Price Is Right” without cable. If you want to be sure, just go to Hulu’s website and type in your zip code to find out if your local CBS affiliate is available.
Watch "The Price Is Right" on fuboTV
fuboTV is another live TV streaming service worth a look. There’s a lot to look at, of course, including plenty of channels devoted to sports, but that’s not why we’re here: You can also get CBS on fuboTV, which is key. You can watch new episodes of The Price Is Right on fuboTV.
Watch "The Price Is Right" on Sling TV
If you’re thinking: “Sling TV doesn’t have CBS,” then you’re absolutely right. But cable replacement service Sling TV does carry GSN. That means there’s definitely a way to watch “The Price is Right” without cable, but only if you don’t mind missing out on the most recent episodes.
YouTube TV is another big brand name in the live TV streaming service world. It’s a lot different than what you’ll find on the regular YouTube website, even though the names are similar. You can use YouTube TV to watch CBS in many markets, and by now you should know what that means: That’s right, it means you can stream The Price Is Right without having to mess with cable.
Watch The Price Is Right on Paramount Plus
Paramount Plus is CBSViacom’s streaming service. It’s bigger and better than its predecessor, CBS All Access, but it still includes one of the things that made CBS All Access great: a live stream of your local CBS Station. That makes it easy to watch “The Price Is Right” whenever it airs. Plus (get it?), Paramount Plus comes loaded with lots of on-demand content for you to watch on your own schedule. Whether you watch live or on demand is up to you!
Free over-the-air TV is one of the best-kept secrets in cord cutting. In many parts of the U.S., channels like CBS are available for free — all you need is an antenna! Modern OTA TV airs in high definition, so you’ll be able to watch contestants freak out over brand new cars in crystal-clear HD.
Game shows like The Price Is Right love giving away electronics packages. You’ll find smart TVs, tablets, phones, and laptops scattered all throughout the hour-long show. As luck would have it, you can also use all those devices to watch The Price Is Right. Sitting in front of your TV is the standard option. Yet as you’ll see from the chart below, it’s definitely not your only option.
When you watch The Price Is Right without cable, you’re watching a piece of television history. But what do you watch when the showcase showdown is over and Drew Carey’s reminding you to spay and neuter your pets?
That’s your call, and unlike those people who always bid a dollar more than the contestant right before them, we’re not going to judge you! But we can make a recommendation or two. The Price Is Right is a reliable classic. For something a lot more modern, check out The Masked Singer. It’s unpredictable and over-the-top. Contestants aren’t competing for cars or electronics.
