As it befits a network named for an expansive, diverse country that stretches from sea to shining sea, the USA Network has a little something for everyone. One of the first national cable television channels, USA Network has, at various points, served as a hub for sports, game shows, and cult cinema. Today, it’s a little bit of everything: the dark visions of Mr. Robot and The Purge, your place to dine on all-you-can-eat Law and Order: SVU, and home to the none-more-American WWE SmackDown. (SmackDown is, of course, easily the greatest live weekly sporting event on TV; Monday Night Football eat your heart out.) It’s also birthed some of the greatest long-running comfort food dramas in cable TV history, from Psych to Suits to Monk to Burn Notice.

The USA Network may have been one of the first channels to embrace cable, but today, you no longer need a cable subscription to dig into its catalog. With a live TV streaming service, you can dive into USA any time.

Here’s everything you need to know to get access to a USA Network live stream.

Best Shows on USA Network

  • Queen of the South
  • American Ninja Warrior: Ninja vs. Ninja
  • Briarpatch
  • Miz and Mrs.
  • Chrisley Knows Best


What is USA Network?

Originally the channel ran mostly talk shows and programming for children like Hannah Barbara cartoons. The channel later revived classic game shows including The Joker’s Wild and Tic-Tac-Dough. Starting the early 00’s, character-driven dramas and comedies like Monk, Psych, and Burn Notice became synonymous with the network.

  • Launched: September 1977
  • Slogan: “All in. All Day.”
  • Genre: Drama/Reality/Sports
  • Formally called: Madison Square Garden Sports Network (1977–1980)
  • Parent Company: NBCUniversal

USA Network live stream: How to watch online

There are a number of live TV streaming services that offer USA Network. So, how do you decide which one is right for you? Well, that depends on your budget, what other channels you just can’t live without, and what device (or devices) you plan on streaming with. We cover all of those essential issues below.

USA Network on Hulu with Live TV

Hulu Live TV is a great way to stream USA Network live because it also comes with access to Hulu’s massive library of on-demand content. When you’re not streaming American Ninja Warrior, 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, USA Network where you can stream Chrisley Knows Best and Miz and Mrs.

USA Network on FuboTV

FuboTV started as a streaming service geared toward sports fans, but it’s 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 180+ 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 now on board, some who were on the fence about Fubo are giving it another look.

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