More to Stream for Fans of REELZ

REELZ offers excellent content across the board, but it can’t hurt to give other channels a chance. Now’s your chance to give similar networks a try.

Like REELZ, Lifetime is a channel that’s wild about true crime, among other things. Sure, some of its content is fictionalized, but most of it is at least based on true stories – and you know those are the best movies! “Bound by Blackmail” and “Girl in the Basement” are among our favorites. For even more options, check out its channel and our guide on how to watch Lifetime without cable.

The History Channel is also a close option. Its programming on unexplainable mysteries mirrors the “How did they do it?” themes seen in REELZ. Shows like “The UnXplained” and “History’s Greatest Mysteries” are likely to interest you. And the best part is you can also watch The History Channel without cable.

    Getting ready to cut the cord on my expensive Spectrum account. I have decided to do my TV viewing on the Amazon Firestick, but haven’t decided which package to subscribe, in order to get local channels live. This website has been a wonderful help in answering questions that I have been unable to find anywhere else. Thank you for your wonderful insight.

    Are there any plans to add REELZ to HuLu live TV? Thank Bridget

      I’ve subscribed to Reelz through Roku on Hulu but it does not have updated shows. It’s a waste of money! I’m ready to just use Amazon Fire Stick. Hulu keeps going up in charges, can only use it on one ISP address. At least Netflix you can take it with you. HULU is just ripping people off, increase charges with no notification at all. Time for a change.

        Same on amazon it only has a library of old reelz shows

    Well we have the firestick, roku, and the smart box. You only need the internet not cable. You get a better deal if you go with the company that you have for your mobile carrier. Ours is about 60.00 including tx.

    I would think at this point Reelz would want to make their current shows more accessible to all those who choose not to have cable (there are a lot). I’m very disappointed that the seasons I can see are 1,2,3,4 of anything!
