It’s hard enough figuring out a cable plan when you just want to watch the final season of The Last Ship or new episodes of The Alienist. Maybe you really just need the perfect package that lets you stream NBA games alongside your entertainment. Plus, you’re on the go so often, you can barely tie yourself down to a living room TV. Thankfully, there are a ton of ways to watch a TNT live stream anytime you want, and you don’t need satellite or cable to do it.
Here’s everything you need to know to watch TNT online.
Best Shows on TNT
What is TNT?
Launched in 1998, TNT is an American television and movie channel that focuses on a mix of drama series and sports coverage. You’ve got decently popular shows like the apocalyptic thriller The Last Ship, starring the often-controversial Adam Baldwin, and mysteries like The Alienist, which I kid you not, features a police commissioner named Teddy Roosevelt solving gruesome murders in turn-of-the-century New York City. In a relatively 180-degree turn, TNT also offers NBA and UEFA (that’s Union of European Football Associations) coverage.
- Launched: October 1988
- Slogan: “Boom”
- Genre: Drama/Sports
- Formally called: Turner Network Television (1988–1995)

How to stream TNT
TNT 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.
Hulu Live TV is one of the most popular ways to stream live TV, perhaps because you gain access to a massive library of on-demand content including classic and current TV shows, movies, not to mention Hulu’s original programming. As far as live-streaming goes, you’ll have a ton of local, entertainment, and sports channels to flip through, including HGTV, a full suite of ESPN channels, Cartoon Network, FX, and even deep cuts like Nat Geographic and Syfy.
FuboTV was built from the ground up with sports fans in mind. There are different channel packages available whether you’re looking for basketball, soccer, golf, or even outdoor sports like rock climbing. But no worries, all the great cable channels you’re after are here too, including Viceland, Bravo, TBS, and IFC.
For a more à la carte service, look to Sling TV. It offers two cable packages, Sling Orange and Sling Blue, each of which costs $30 per month. If you grab them both (Sling Orange + Blue) you can save $10 per month. Sling Blue offers more bang for your buck with over 40 channels, including sports necessities like FS1, NBCSN, and NFL Network. You’ll also gain access to the usual cable mainstays like Food Network, Discovery, Cartoon Network, SYFY, and FXX. Whichever package you choose, you can save $10 on your first month. Here’s the complete guide to Sling TV channels.
Sling’s now offering a 14-day free trial though July 6.
There’s a good chance that you’re already looking to AT&T for your wireless needs. The second you sign up, you’ll gain instant access to 45+ channels, including local channels and even free HBO in the Plus and Max channel suites. Plus, it comes with CloudDVR, which lets you record up to 20 hours of TV per month. One account works on two devices, but you can add more devices for only $5.
YouTube TV is a great solution for families because one subscription can add up to six accounts, and each account comes with unlimited cloud DVR. You can’t beat the variety, either: There are sports channels like NBCSN, NBA TV, and four ESPN channels, while Disney, Disney XD, Disney Junior, and Cartoon Network will keep any kid (or kid at heart) busy for hours. It also comes with a few Spanish-language channels like Telemundo and NBC Universo. AMC, BBC America, and IFC are there too, so you won’t miss out on all that prestige TV.

Other ways to watch TNT online
TNT official site and official app
You can watch past episodes of most of TNT’s programming (including movies) on TNTdrama.com or the official TNT app, which is available on iOS and Android. The only catch is you’ll need to log in using a cable provider account—and the live streaming options list above won’t cut it. The same goes if you want to watch TBS.
