How to Watch TV Land Online Without Cable

Below, you'll find a complete list of the services that we trust to help you watch TV Land without cable right now. They all have one thing in common: they're all live TV streaming services, also called “skinny bundles.” So before we dive into the specifics of the services we're listing, let's get a common question out of the way: what the heck is a live TV streaming service, anyhow?

A live TV streaming service, happily enough, is exactly what it sounds like! You know what live TV is, of course, and you may have already heard of “streaming video,” too: streaming is a way of watching videos on the internet, and it's what has allowed companies like Netflix to challenge cable so effectively.

Of course, the thing about Netflix is that it only offers shows and movies “on demand” – you start and stop shows when you want to, and the stuff you're watching isn't live. But it was only a matter of time before someone decided to take this streaming technology and put it to work on live TV.

Now they have, and the result is a selection of live TV streaming service that offer multiple network channels, just like cable. These new services tend to trim the fat off of those bulky cable bundles, offer a more streamlined set of popular channels for less (remember that “skinny bundle” nickname we mentioned? This is where it came from). And since these services stream over the internet, you can use them to watch live TV on all sorts of different devices, from smartphones to streaming sticks (which will let you watch TV Land without cable on your big screen).

Not every live TV streaming service offers a TV Land live stream, but some of our favorites do. Let's go over your best options.

Stream TV Land with Sling TV

Try It

Skinny bundles are a great way to save money — unless your favorite channel is among the ones being trimmed out to cut costs! Not all of us watch the same stuff, so it makes sense that Sling TV decided to leave the trimming up to their customers. With Sling TV, you're the one who decides what's in (and what's out of) your new skinny bundle. You start with a base package and then add on “extras,” which are mini-bundles of channels grouped together by type. You can choose whether or not to add on bundles for things like sports, news, and comedy. This makes Sling TV a great way to watch TV Land without cable — just build a bundle that includes the network! Check out our Sling TV review to learn more.

    All these streaming services are just like cable companies… there is NO DIFFERENCE!!! They offer a small package/bundle which never includes all the channels or shows you watch. Then lets say you want to add 5 other channels. They have packages/bundles that include them, but they are usually not in the same bundle so you end up having to add 3, 4 or 5 additional bundles/packages so then you are spending the same or more than cable. Then if you want DVR for live channels you have to buy DVR cloud service for an additional price. No matter what you do it is a rip off. They are ALL the same.

    1. Avatar Matt Shulman says:

      Terra, there is one major difference. With a cable company, you often need to rent a cable box. Plus there are other fees on top of it. With streaming, you get more options. YouTube TV for example is $40/month with unlimited DVR. No single streaming option will have every single channel, so if you really want to save, the key is to eliminate what you don’t have to have.

      1. Avatar Mike says:

        Its $50 a month now. They keep raising prices, making it as bad as cable with less channels.
        No Paramount TV or TV land, Comedy Central, Nick…Sad.
        These are in most base cable packages

    2. Avatar Jerry says:

      Even if what you said was totally accurate, which it’s not, I would rather pay upwards of 80.00-100.00 a month less for a streaming service over cable

      1. Avatar Mike says:

        Well, you like wasting money then, as you can get many more, and more complete selection of channels from cable for that much

        1. Avatar Donna Rinaldi says:

          I agree with Jerry…I am paying much less and it really depends on what you consider “more”. I received many more channels from cable but watched very few. I have more quality program from how I am obtaining my services for much less…I am saving over 13.00 per month.

          1. Avatar Donna Rinaldi says:

            That should say 130.00 per month, not 13.00…

  2. Avatar Jim says:

    The one primary difference I see is not having to commit to a year or two. You make a one-time purchase for a streaming device. I agree with Terra, these skinny bundles are fine, but there is always something missing. While many have TCM, INSP is pretty hard to find. It seems really crazy to pay for the UP channel as an add-on, all by itself. I am stuck with cable until cord cutting makes better sense. Funny, TV Land is not in HD on my cable. Do they have an HD option?

    1. Avatar Liz says:

      Check out Philo. All channels you want except the TCM, TBS group. And Frndly is even cheaper

  3. Avatar Fran says:

    I have sling tv. I am suppose to get over 70 channels. Just now looked and am only get 25. So I am paying a dollar a channel. Guess it’s time to cancel sling. Cost way to much to start it up. Paid 2 months in advance. Had to change my email address. So they used my old and new email. So I was charged twice. Even told them. Sorry no refunds. Glad I caught it. 55 dollars a month is a little to much. Good bye sling.

    1. Avatar Mike says:

      Sling is junk, duplicate channels if you get both blue & orange bundles.
      Addons are crazy expensive.
      Totally Out For Me

        Be glad you still have TV land . I lost all Viacom channels and the bill went up 20 percent to boot!

        The shows are different than the ones on cable .I have Pluto.
