Reality TV is a microcosm of humanity at its most bare, and darn it, we want to see if our two leading contestants get together in the end. That’s where Bravo comes in, with its plethora of trashy-to-top-tier programming. (And we say trashy with the utmost love.) Here’s everything you need to know to watch a Bravo live stream online.

What is Bravo?

Launched all the way back in 1980, Bravo has come a long, long way since its inception. Back in the ’80s, Bravo operated as a premium channel, only airing a few times a week, and when it wasn’t on, you’d find the softcore porn Escapade channel in its place. Yikes. When Bravo was on, you’d most likely find a cornucopia of international, classic, and independent films. Since then, Bravo has transitioned into far more reality television programming, with shows like Shahs of Sunset, Southern Charm, Real Housewives, and Top Chef.

  • Slogan: “Watch what happens.”
  • Genre: Reality/LGBT
  • Parent Company: NBC Universal

Best Shows on Bravo


Bravo live stream: How to watch Bravo online

Bravo is available on a few of the major live TV streaming services. When trying to decide which one is best for you, you’ll want to weigh the cost, the other channels you’ll receive, and the compatible devices for streaming.

Bravo on Hulu with Live TV

Hulu Live TV is a great way to stream Bravo live—not just for its real-time offerings but it comes with access to Hulu’s massive library of on-demand content. You’ll be able to choose from movies, shows, and Hulu’s original programming, and keep up with what’s new each month. Hulu plans even include a bundle option where you can access Disney+ and ESPN+ along with Hulu.

Hulu Live TV sets you up with local channels and has a broad spectrum of entertainment and sports channels to review, including the full suite of ESPN channels, Cartoon Network, FX, HGTV, and even deep cuts like National Geographic and Syfy, and of course, Bravo, where you can stream hits like Watch What Happens Live and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Bravo on Sling TV

If you’re looking for a streamlined, cost-effective streaming package that includes Bravo, check out Sling TV. It offers two basic cable packages, Sling Orange and Sling Blue, each of which costs $30 per month. You can watch Bravo on either package, but there’s also the third option of getting Sling Orange + Blue for just $45 per month. If you have to choose, we recommend Sling Blue, with its 40 channels including sports favorites like FS1 and NBCSN and other binge-worthy cable mainstays like Food Network and Discovery Channel. But Sling Orange brings must-haves Disney Channel and ESPN as part of its package, so you can’t really go wrong either way. Sling also has a number of add-ons, including robust international packages organized by languages all over the globe.

Bravo on FuboTV

FuboTV started as a streaming service geared toward sports fans, but don’t let that fool you, Bravo fans. It’s recently evolved into a broadly-appealing option with entertainment and news options alongside its robust sports choices. Depending on the package, you can access as many as 181 FuboTV channels. If you’re looking to be entertained, Bravo, IFC, MTV, and VH1 are options even at Fubo’s most basic tier. The Fubo channel list still includes plenty of sports, including the Fubo Sports Network, which has original programming mixing sports and humor. The FuboTV cost starts at $54.99 a month, and with Disney Media favorites like ABC, ESPN, and the Disney Channel coming on board in 2020, some who were on the fence about Fubo are giving it another look.

To watch Bravo or Bravo, you’ll want to dock in at the FuboTV Standard level.

Bravo on AT&T TV Now

If you’re already looking to AT&T for your wireless needs, you might consider AT&T TV Now to cover streaming for you. AT&T TV Now channels start with Plus and Max, which even include HBO. Then, AT&T plans expand from there, approaching cable selection and pricing with AT&T TV Now’s biggest packages. AT&T streaming also comes with Cloud DVR, letting you record up to 20 hours of TV per month. If you’re looking for Bravo, get in at the AT&T TV Now Plus tier to stream it.

Bravo on YouTube

The YouTube TV channel list includes local channels, sports options including ESPN, ESPN2, FS1, FS2, and NBA TV, and plenty to keep kids (and kids at heart) occupied, including Disney Channel and its companion channels, Nickelodeon, and Cartoon Network—all in one easy-to-access package. It even comes with a few Spanish-language channels like Telemundo and NBC Universo. YouTube add-ons include HBO Max, Showtime, and Starz. YouTube TV packages have some advantages over their competitors, including a generous DVR and multiple screens package. From one account, each user can create an individual profile to track favorite shows.

If you’re looking for Bravo, know that you can stream it on YouTube TV.
