For many, TV Land is the place to watch beloved classic TV shows like The Brady Bunch, All in the Family, Alf, or maybe The Dick Van Dyke Show. These days, TV Land offers more sitcoms from the modern era and a few selections from the ’80s, but it hasn’t lost nostalgic charm. Thankfully, the channel has kept up with the times when it comes to finding a live stream of TV Land shows. So if you’re looking to ditch expensive cable plans, here’s everything you need to know to watch a TV Land live stream for free.

TV Land live stream: How to watch online

You won’t find a TV Land live stream available on every live TV streaming service—notably, Hulu Live TV, FuboTV, and YouTube TV are all missing the channel. But you still have a few options for getting TV Land, including two platforms that come with a free seven-day trial.

TV Land on Philo

Philo is a budget-minded streaming service, and depending on what channels you want, it might be right for you. The 59 Philo channels lean decidedly toward entertainment; the Philo channel list includes AMC, Discovery, IFC, Lifetime, and the Paramount Network, all for $20 a month. If you’re a fan of TV Land, you’re in luck: You can find it on Philo. Philo also comes with free cloud DVR, but shows recorded are deleted after 30 days, so binge responsibly.


TV Land on Sling TV

If you’re looking for a streamlined, cost-effective streaming package, check out Sling TV. It offers two basic cable packages, Sling Orange and Sling Blue, each of which costs $30 per month. There’s also the third option of getting Sling Orange + Blue for just $45 per month. You’ll get more Sling TV channels by choosing Sling Blue, with its 40 channels including sports favorites like FS1 and NBCSN and cable mainstays like Food Network and Discovery Channel. But Sling Orange brings must-haves Disney Channel and ESPN as part of its package. To gain access to TV Land, you’ll either need Sling Orange, Sling Blue, or Sling Orange + Blue and the Comedy Extra channel suite. Sling also has a number of add-ons, including robust international packages organized by languages all over the globe.
