How to watch a Telemundo live stream online for free

In the world of Spanish-speaking television, no names are bigger than Telemundo and Univision. From telenovelas to broadcast news, Telemundo offers nearly-constant programming. But it can be a pain to keep up with cable bills while trying to keep up with your favorite Spanish movies and shows, so if you’re looking for a cheaper, more accessible alternative, here’s our guide on how to watch a Telemundo live stream.

What is Telemundo?

Though Telemundo’s origins go back as far as 1954 in the form of WKAQ-TV, the Telemundo brand wasn’t fully developed until 1993. By then, the Telemundo organization had acquired enough subsidiary channels and content that a rebranding was due. Thus, the big T logo was born. Since its inception, Telemundo has brought plenty of drama shows to its lineup, including The Lord of the Skies, La Reina del Sur, Fearless Heart, and dozens more. Telemundo also provides Spanish-speaking news, reality television, talk shows, sports, and even children’s programming.

Telemundo live stream: 5 ways to watch Telemundo online for free

Not every major live TV streaming service includes a Telemundo live stream—the channel is missing from Philo and Sling TV—but you still have plenty of options. Each service that offers Telemundo comes with at least a free seven-day trial.

1) Hulu with Live TV

Hulu with Live TV

It’s exactly what it sounds like: Hulu’s on-demand library of movies, shows, and anime, plus live streams of 58 channels, including your Telemundo live stream. There’s no Univision or other Spanish-speaking channels to add on, unfortunately. There are plenty of English entertainment and news options, though, like Cartoon Network, CW, CNN, and four ESPN channels. (Here’s the complete guide to Hulu Live TV channels.)


2) PlayStation Vue

A Telemundo live stream is the only Spanish channel available on PlayStation Vue’s entry-level “Access” package, which also gets you Freeform, Discovery, Disney, ESPN, and ESPN2. You can opt in for the “Español Pack,” which includes Cine Sony, CNN en Español, Fox Deportes, two Spanish Discovery channels, and Universo—but no Univision. (Here’s the complete guide to PlayStation Vue channels.) 


3) FuboTV

If you’re just as interested in sports as you are in a Telemundo live stream, FuboTV is a really solid choice. It’s also one of the most accommodating packages for Spanish-speaking audiences. You’ll get Fox Deportes, the El Rey Network, NBC Universo, Univision, Univision TDN, and UniMás. English-speaking sports include the NFL Network, Fox Sports, CBS Sports, NBA TV, and NBC Golf, although no ESPN. If you need one simple package to get as much Spanish content as possible, FuboTV is the way to go. (Here’s the complete guide to FuboTV channels.)

If you want to keep your Telemundo live stream viewing in the familiar YouTube player, YouTube TV is a good choice. You’ll also get NBC Universo and regular Universo.
