How to watch TV Land online for free

For many, TV Land is the place to watch beloved classic TV shows like The Brady Bunch, All in the Family, Alf, or maybe The Dick Van Dyke Show. These days, TV Land offers more sitcoms from the modern era and a few selections from the ’80s, but it hasn’t lost nostalgic charm. Thankfully, the channel has kept up with the times when it comes to finding a live stream of TV Land shows. So if you’re looking to ditch expensive cable plans, here’s everything you need to know to watch a TV Land live stream for free.

TV Land live stream: 3 ways to watch

You won’t find a TV Land live stream available on every live TV streaming service—notably, Hulu with Live TV, FuboTV, YouTube TV, and PlayStation Vue are all missing the channel. But you still have a few options for getting TV Land, including two platforms that come with a free seven-day trial.

1) Sling TV

Sling TV is split up between an Orange and a Blue package. If you want to save a buck, you can select one package for $25. The choice will likely come down to how you feel about ESPN versus other sports channels. Or, for $40 per month, you can get both packages. To get a TV Land live stream, you’ll want to add the Sling Comedy package for $5 a month. The add-on is available no matter what route you choose. (Here’s the complete guide to Sling TV channels and our Sling TV review.)


2) Philo

  • Cost: $20 per month
  • Philo devices: Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire Stick and Fire TV, iOS and Android devices

Philo is the absolute cheapest way to watch TV Land on a streaming service. For just $16 a month, you’ll get your TV Land live stream, plus BBC America, AMC, Comedy Central, and more. If you don’t mind limited options for news or sports channels, Philo is a great cost-efficient live TV streaming option. (Here’s the complete guide to Philo channels.)
