How to Watch MSNBC Live Online Without Cable
1. SlingTVSlingTV is one of the best options for cord cutters, offering a la carte channels. There are a few popular options they don’t have, such as Fox News, but SlingTV will enable customers to take MSNBC for a spin in one of their packages. MSNBC is actually in their “News Extra” package, which costs a meager monthly fee. Keep in mind that you may need a “core” service to purchase the News Extra add-on. For example, you might need to be already subscribed to the Sling Blue package to add extras to your service. Check it out for yourself below.
2. DirecTV Now
If you’re not familiar with DirecTV Now, it’s AT&T’s new live TV streaming service. It had a bit of a rocky start, but it’s an all-around dependable service. They offer access to all of your favorite news channels as well, including MSNBC. To get access to these channels, you’ll need to be signed up for DirecTV Now’s “Live a Little” monthly package.
The downside to DirecTV Now is that it isn’t necessarily a la carte like Sling TV, so you’re not able to get as cheap as a service.
A lot of regular video streaming providers are trying to compete against the big cable and satellite TV companies heavily. One of those is Hulu, offering a new service called Hulu TV. If you sign up for Hulu with Live TV, you’ll get access to MSNBC as well as a ton of other news channels. You can watch them live or on-demand.
Hulu with Live TV will cost you a monthly fee, but as part of that package, you get the regular Hulu streaming package bundled in, so you can still watch your favorite shows that aren’t streaming any longer. Check it out below.
