If you were even halfway alive in the ’90s, there was one television law man that you would never dare cross. Cordell Walker, played to the hilt by Chuck Norris, dished out lone star justice every week on Walker, Texas Ranger. It’s been two decades since he kept peace on the range, but he’s back in Walker.
The CW reimagining of the action drama drags Cordell Walker into 2021, played by Supernatural darling Jared Padalecki. After being undercover for two years, the lawman and widower must do the impossible: go home again. He must reconnect with his rebellious teens, troublesome parents, and an unlikely new partner. He may even uncover new details surrounding his wife's death, all while dishing out justice, Texas style.
Here's everything you need to stream Walker.

What the critics are saying:
"With so many characters, there’s not as much time for busting up bad guys — and when Walker goes too far in one beat-down he gets a mild reprimand from his boss — so this isn’t your grandfather’s “Walker.” It’s clearly The CW’s cookie cutter iteration." -Rob Owen, Pittsburgh Tribune Review
How to stream Walker
The CW 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.
Walker on Hulu with Live TV
Hulu Live TV is one of the most popular ways to stream the CW, 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.

Walker on Fubo TV
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 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 the CW, you'll need to be in a specific market that carries it, but if yours does, you can get it at any service level.
|Family with Showtime||$74.99 ($69.99 for first 3 mos.)|
Walker on YouTube TV
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 the CW, know that you can stream it on YouTube TV.
Walker 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 the CW, you can get in at the baseline tiers to stream it if it's in your market. (You should check before you commit, though.)
