Below, we'll lay out everything you need to know about how to get an RFD-TV live stream and watch RFD-TV online using your Roku, Fire TV Stick, smart TV, or other streaming device. We'll introduce you to a new type of pay TV service that is making it easier than ever to cut the cord, and we'll list the specific services that you can use to stream RFD-TV – including RFD-TV's own standalone streaming service, RFD-TV Country Club. We'll link you to the free trials you can use to watch RFD-TV online free (for a little while, anyway), and we'll talk about the devices you can use to stream RFD-TV. Sound good? Then read on: this is how to watch RFD-TV without cable.

How to watch RFD-TV online without cable

You can get RFD-TV a few different ways. You already know that you can subscribe to a cable or satellite package, of course – but this article is called “How to Watch RFD-TV Without Cable,” so we're going to ignore those overpriced options.

Our next option is what we call a “skinny bundle.” What is a skinny bundle? In some ways, it's something that feels like cable: a pay TV service that offers you a bunch of live channels in exchange for a monthly fee. But skinny bundles make some major changes to cable's business model, and those changes allow them to be cheaper and better than their old-school competition.

See, skinny bundles stream online – kind of like Netflix, only for live TV. That means you can watch them almost anywhere and on a wide range of devices. Plus, there are no regional monopolies like there are with cable. Competing skinny bundles offer low prices and great features. They also offer slimmer, more cost-effective bundles that don't force you to pay for channels you don't watch (that's where the “skinny bundle” nickname comes from).

There's another way to watch RFD-TV without cable, too: its own subscription service. On the list below, we'll start with skinny bundles and then move on to RFD-TV's own standalone service. After our list, we'll talk about what devices you can use to watch RFD-TV without cable.

Stream RFD-TV with Sling TV

Try It

In theory, skinny bundles make things cheaper by trimming away unwanted channels. But some services may trim away channels you want – like RFD-TV. And others may relegate lesser-known but beloved channels to higher price tiers with bulky, cable-like bundles.

Sling TV has a solution to this problem: they let you build your own skinny bundle. You start by grabbing a base package. From there, you are free to go in just about any direction that you choose using Sling TV's “Extras.” Extras are small add-on bundles that group similar channels together so that you can grab just the stuff you want – more sports, for instance, without having to add home improvement channels or movie channels to get the sports stuff. Building a bundle that includes RFD-TV is easy to do.


AT&T TV Now is a live TV streaming service. It's bundles are something less than “skinny,” but it has the virtue of offering RFD-TV to subscribers who pick the right bundle. Make sure that you're get RFD-TV before you sign up, though, as not every channel bundle offered by AT&T TV Now includes the network. You can test out AT&T TV Now with a free trial that the service makes available to new subscribers. Note that the free trial does not apply to every bundle AT&T TV Now offers.

RFD-TV Country Club

“Country Club” is the name of RFD-TV's direct-to-consumer subscription service. Yep, you can watch RFD-TV online without having to subscribe to a single other channel! RFD-TV maintains its own streaming service that shows nothing but RFD-TV content, and that makes it pretty darn affordable to get an RFD-TV live stream. RFD-TV Country Club costs $10 per month or $90 per year (educators can get a half-price discount on the annual rate).

Platform support is a little limited for RFD-TV Country Club right now (it's only available in your browser, though the in-browser app works on mobile devices, too; we'll talk more about platform support for all of these services in just a bit). But it's a great way to get RFD-TV and nothing but RFD-TV at a very attractive price point. You can check it out by clicking on the link below.

Can I watch RFD-TV on Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, or Chromecast?

AT&T TV Now and Sling TV play nice with Chromecast devices. RFD-TV Country Club has apps that work with Chromecast devices (more on those apps in a moment).

Want to watch on the go? Good news: Sling TV and AT&T TV Now have apps for iOS and Android mobile devices. That means you can watch RFD-TV almost anywhere.

Computers are a great option for streaming RFD-TV online, too. You can use a desktop or laptop computer running a major browser to access the in-browser apps offered by Sling TV, AT&T TV Now, and RFD-TV Country Club.

Using RFD-TV Country Club's in-browser app on Chrome on a desktop or laptop computer, you can cast the feed to your Chromecast device and get live RFD-TV content on your television (the skinny bundles can work with Chromecast, too, from both their in-browser apps and their mobile apps).

    5. Avatar Anonymous says:

      I’m old school also and not very ‘tech minded’. However I did download the app from my fire stick and today I’m watching Red Stegall and Doc Talk! I did have to use my laptop to make an account thru my email and pay the streaming fee & we are watching our favorite channel. I cut the Dish cord after many years of service but when I tried to get a lower rate for my years of service I was told when I moved from one state to back home I was considered a new customer so therefore my prior years didn’t count as a long time customer. I said goodbye to Dish and bought an antenna. Haven’t missed anything except RFD-TV.

    I am moving going to you tube in our new home.. cutting the cord.. will get you tube tv and some other apps, thru firestick. hopefully RFDTV will be there. Enjoy watching some programs and we presently DVR them butwill not got back to 225+ dollars a month just to get RFDtv, sorry

    1. Avatar Barb says:

      I understand exactly how you feel. We are just in the first stages of moving to full streaming. We just had our tv company stream in shows they offer by using Roku. Locking how Roku works may be the streaming devise we use when we move to full stream. We have Apple TV and fire stick but right now as we look at Roku because it how we get our tv service I am impressed. I have looked up streaming RFDtv and you it as a stand alone is $10 a month. Our tv I now is over $200 and we have another service at our Town house 4 hours away and it is over i$200. We Have to something very soon. Please let me know how iTube works. Thanks

  14. Avatar Rob says:

    Ten dollars a month for ONE channel is outrageous. If cable charged that much my 150 channels would be 1500 dollars a month. Cutting cable but will not pay $10 a month for ONE channel. So long RFD TV!

    I have ROKU and Sling blue. How can I get rfdtv? I am not a techy and live off my SS so I need cost effective idea please!

    1. Avatar Stephen Lovely says:

      You’ll just need to tack on the “Heartland Extra” bundle to your Sling Blue subscription. It’s an extra $5/month and includes 10 or so other channels (American Heroes, Outdoor Channel, etc.). You should be able to add it on Sling TV’s website if you’re logged in. Thanks for reading!

  18. Avatar Anonymous says:

    Like Stephen said, I added the Heartland Extra channel to Sling and am very happy with it.

    I had used DirecTV for a long time, then switched to Dish when I moved to another state and and DirecTV refused to treat me as a new customer. When my Dish contract was up, I moved back to Direct as I thought their offerings and customer service were way better. But then Direct was bought by AT&T and AT&T decided to start huge annual price increases.

    I decided to cut the cord. Keeping RFD was my top priority in this. Sling fit my needs the best.

    I also installed a TV antenna and was amazed by what that brought me. A picture that is actually better than I was getting from Direct. Way more channels than I knew existed over the air.. I am saving a ton and enjoying TV more than before!
