How to watch ‘Cosmos: Possible Worlds’

New worlds await.


Jaime Carrillo


About 40 years ago, Carl Sagan dazzled the imagination and inspired a new generation of aspiring scientists with Cosmos: A Personal Voyage. In 2014, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson continued educating audiences with Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey. Now, deGrasse Tyson is back to debut a new season with Cosmos: Possible Worlds.

This season the celebrated astrophysicist will translate more scientific revelations, taking audiences to uncharted realms, lost worlds, and perhaps planets that humanity may one day inhabit.

Here’s everything you need to know to watch Cosmos: Possible Worlds.

How to watch Cosmos: Possible Worlds

National Geographic is available on a handful 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.

1) Hulu with Live TV

  • Hulu devices: Roku, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire Stick and Fire TV, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Nintendo Switch, and iOS and Android devices
  • Local channels: ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, the CW (check your local availability here)

Hulu with 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 almost 60 channels to flip through, including HGTV, a full suite of ESPN channels, Cartoon Network, FX, and even deep cuts like Nat Geo Wild and Syfy. Here’s the complete list of Hulu Live TV channels.

2) Sling TV

For a more à la carte service, look to Sling TV. It offers two cable packages, Sling Orange and Sling Blue, both of which cost $30 per month. National Geographic is available on Sling Blue packages. 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. Here’s the complete guide to Sling TV channels.

YouTube TV is a great solution for families because one subscription can add up to six accounts. Each account comes with unlimited cloud DVR.
