Everything you need to know to cut the cord and watch TNT shows online.
It’s hard enough figuring out a cable plan when you just want to watch the final season of The Last Ship or new episodes of The Alienist. Maybe you really just need the perfect package that lets you stream NBA games alongside your entertainment. Plus, you’re on the go so often, you can barely tie yourself down to a living room TV. Thankfully, there are a ton of ways to watch a TNT live stream anytime you want, and you don’t need satellite or cable to do it.
Here’s everything you need to know to watch TNT online.
What is TNT?
Launched in 1998, TNT is an American television and movie channel that focuses on a mix of drama series and sports coverage. You’ve got decently popular shows like the apocalyptic thriller The Last Ship, starring the often-controversial Adam Baldwin, and mysteries like The Alienist, which I kid you not, features a police commissioner named Teddy Roosevelt solving gruesome murders in turn-of-the-century New York City. In a relatively 180-degree turn, TNT also offers NBA and UEFA (that’s Union of European Football Associations) coverage.
WATCH: Is SlingTV worth it?
1) Sling TV
- Cost: $25-$40 per month (after a 7-day free trial)
- 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)
Sling TV is basically a war between two packages. Both will get you TNT, conveniently enough. But do you then go with Sling Orange, which gets you three ESPN channels, AMC, Disney Channel, and other entertainment options; or do you go for Sling Blue, which has everything a sports fan could want besides ESPN? You could always suck it up and shell out $40 a month for the combo package. (Here’s a complete guide to Sling TV channels.)
Game-changing feature: Price. Sling TV is the cheapest way to watch a TNT live stream.
- Cost: $40 per month (after a 7-day free trial)
- Hulu devices: Roku, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire Stick and Fire TV, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Nintendo Switch, and iOS and Android devices
- Hulu local channels: ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, the CW (check your local availability here)
If you need you live TV but still enjoy the on-demand features of a service like Hulu or Netflix, Hulu with Live TV is the place to be. It’s all in the name. Fifty-plus channels gets you some local networks (coverage may vary), entertainment channels like FX, the CW, news programming, and a decent smattering of sports on ESPN, ESPN 2, and Fox Sports. No AMC though, so if you’re hoping to watch The Walking Dead’s ninth season, look elsewhere. (Here’s a complete guide to Hulu Live TV channels.)
Game-changing feature: Every subscription comes with free access to Hulu’s on-demand library, meaning you can catch up on all of your favorite shows. (Here are our picks for the best movies on Hulu, Hulu documentaries, anime, and the must-see Hulu originals.)
- Cost: $44.99-$79.99 per month (after a 7-day free trial)
- PlayStation Vue devices: PlayStation 3 and 4, Roku, Amazon Fire, Google Chromecast, Kodi, iOS and Android devices
- Local channels: NBC, Fox, ABC, CBS (enter your ZIP code here to check your availability)
Thankfully, PlayStation Vue works on plenty more than just your PlayStation console. You’ll get your TNT shows; entertainment channels like FX, Syfy, and AMC; plus ESPN and ESPN 2 and more in the basic “Access” package. If you want more sports, though, you’ll have to shell out some more money for the “Core” package. (Here’s a complete guide to PlayStation Vue channels.).
Game-changing feature: You can stream on up to five devices at once, and there’s unlimited cloud DVR.
- Cost: $44.99 for your first month and $54.99 per month thereafter (after a 7-day free trial)
- FuboTV devices: Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire, Android TV, iOS and Android devices
- FuboTV local channels: Fox, NBC, CBS (check local availability here)
Simply put, FuboTV is geared towards sports fans—at least the ones who can live without ESPN. You’ll get a TNT live stream, plus your FS1 and FS2 in the basic package, as well as specialty offerings like NFL Network and NBA TV. (Here’s a complete guide to FuboTV channels.)
Game-changing feature: Three-day replay for games and 30 hours of cloud DVR.
5) YouTube TV
- Cost: $49.99 per month (after a 7-day free trial)
- YouTube TV devices: Google Chromecast, Roku, Apple TV, Android TV, Xbox One, iOS and Android devices
- Local channels: NBC, CBS, Fox, ABC, the CW (enter your ZIP code here to check your availability)
If drama and a bit of sports are your thing, YouTube TV will let you and up to five other accounts DVR as much as you like, so you’ll never have to worry about tossing old episodes by accident. YouTube TV is also one of the better ways to stream sports, as you’re getting ESPN, NBA TV, and more. Just watch out for the lame filler channels, and keep in mind that YouTube TV isn’t the same thing as YouTube Premium; the latter nixes ads on YouTube. (Here’s a complete guide to YouTube TV channels.)
Game-changing feature: You can add up to six accounts per household, and each one of those accounts gets unlimited cloud DVR. Even better: You can fast-forward through ads in recorded programs.
