For a channel that once featured puppets making prank phone calls, Comedy Central still stands as a pillar of modern entertainment television. Less than a decade ago, Jon Stewart defined what it meant to be a political humorist, and Key & Peele continued the Chapelle Show’s legacy of biting racial humor and commentary. If you’re sick of expensive cable plans and are looking for a cheaper, more convenient streaming service, look no further. Here’s everything you need to know to watch a Comedy Central live stream.
|HOW TO WATCH COMEDY CENTRAL|

|AT&T TV NOW||TRY NOW|
What is Comedy Central?
Founded in 1989, Comedy Central is one of the biggest purveyors of—go figure—comedy programming. Countless stand-up specials, cartoons, sitcoms, and variety or talk shows have all rotated through its lineup at one point or another. The list of famous Comedy Central shows is long but includes South Park, Reno 911, Workaholics, Futurama, Bojack Horseman, Tosh.O, and Broad City, to name just a few. Comedy Central is also well-known for showing reruns of popular comedies like King of the Hill.
Comedy Central live stream: 3 ways to watch Comedy Central online for free
Though only a few live TV streaming services offer a Comedy Central live stream, those that do come with at least a free seven-day trial. The channel is missing from Hulu, FuboTV, YouTube TV, and PlayStation Vue.
- Cost: $20 per month (after 7-day free trial)
- Philo devices: Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire Stick and Fire TV, iOS and Android devices
Philo is the absolute cheapest way to get a Comedy Central live stream—and plenty of other entertainment channel live streams. That includes AMC, BBC America, Discovery, MTV, Nickelodeon, and more. Philo lacks sports channels, and your news options are limited to only BBC World News and Cheddar Big News. But there’s an add-on package that gets you BET Her, Nicktoons, and two Discovery channels among others. (Here’s a complete guide to Philo channels.)
2) Sling TV
- Cost: $25-$40 per month (40% off first month)
- Sling TV devices: Amazon Fire TVs, Android Fire Stick, Apple TV, Android TV, Roku, Xbox One, Google Chromecast, Oculus Go, and iOS and Android devices
- Sling TV local channels: NBC, Fox (check your local availability here)
There’s a catch with Sling TV: It’s split up between the Sling Orange package and the Sling Blue package, each with different channels. You can buy one for $25 or combine them for $40. The good news is that a Comedy Central live stream is on both. Sling Orange is a pretty basic mix of entertainment and news, and the most significant sports options are four separate ESPN channels. Sling Blue has plenty of entertainment options but definitely suits sports fans, assuming they can live without ESPN. Sling also features a wide variety of add-on packages, plus options for Spanish-speaking viewers. (Here’s a complete guide to Sling TV channels.)
3) AT&T TV Now
- Cost: $50-$135 per month
- Hulu devices: Roku, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire Stick and Fire TV, iOS and Android devices
- Local channels: NBC, CBS, Fox, ABC, the CW (enter your ZIP code here to check your availability)
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 on 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.
Other ways to watch Comedy Central online
To use the Comedy Central app, you’ll need to log in with your information from a streaming service. The app is compatible with Philo and DirecTV but not with Sling TV.
You can watch a Comedy Central live stream (as well as some on-demand content) on CC.com, but you’ll have to provide a login from a valid streaming service. If you use Philo or DirecTV Now, you should be good to go. Unfortunately, Sling doesn’t make the cut.
