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.
What is TV Land?
Founded in 1996, TV Land immediately banked on nostalgia for sitcoms from the 1950s and onward. In addition to the shows mentioned above, some popular options included The Andy Griffith Show, Bonanza, and The Cosby Show. These days, you’ll find TV Land serving up Everybody Loves Raymond, Hot in Cleveland, M*A*S*H, The Golden Girls, The Goldbergs, Lopez, Two and a Half Men, and more.
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
Cost: $25 to $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 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.)
- 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.)
3) DirecTV Now
- Cost: $40-$75 per month (after a 7-day free trial)
- DirecTV Now devices: Roku, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, and Amazon Fire Stick
DirecTV Now offers one of the best live streaming TV deals out there. For the $40 entry level “Live a Little” package, you’ll get your TV Land live stream along with 71 other channels including AMC, BBC, Comedy Central, FX, History, Lifetime, and more. If you love your premium channels like HBO or Showtime, DirecTV Now is the cheapest way to get them for as little as $5 a month. (Here’s the complete guide to DirecTV Now channels.)
