How to Watch Oxygen Without Paying For Cable TV


Recently Oxygen announced it will be rebranding into a crime-focused channel. It plans to build off of its popular “SNAPPED” shows and create a new lineup of shows such as “PoliceWomen Files,” “She Made Me Do It,” and “Homicide For the Holidays.”

The good news for fans of Oxygen is that it is one of the most cord cutting friendly networks out there. (At least when it comes to watching it live.)

Here is our guide to watching Oxygen without the long-term contracts and high cost of cable TV.

Oxygen is on every major live TV streaming service such as Sling TV, Hulu, DIRECTV NOW, PlayStation Vue, YouTube, and fuboTV. So let’s take a moment and look at a few of the options.

The Least Expensive Option

If you want the least expensive way to watch Oxygen, you should check out Sling TV. You will find Oxygen in its Lifestyle Extra add-on. The Sling TV Orange plan and the Lifestyle Extra plan will cost you just $25 a month. With that you will get over 40 channels including Hallmark Channel, WE TV, HGTV, and Lifetime.

Sling TV offers a 7-day free trial allowing you to test out the service before you pay for it.

The Best Deal If You Are an AT&T Unlimited Subscriber

If you are an AT&T Unlimited Wireless subscriber, you should check out DIRECTV NOW. AT&T is offering its AT&T Wireless Unlimited subscribers $25 a month off of DIRECTV NOW. That means you could get the Go Big package for just $25 a month. That will give you the Oxygen network and 100+ channels, making DIRECTV NOW the least expensive per channel deal if you are an AT&T Wireless customer.

DIRECTV NOW also offers a 7-day free trial.

Try Them All

The best part of cord cutting is the ability to try a service before you pay for it. PlayStation Vue, Hulu, fuboTV, and YouTube TV are all great services and offer something for everyone. So why not test them all out before picking one to pay for?

    Again this is paying for cable the only difference is it’s a cat5 cable delivering the feed instead of coax. You are watching tv networks on a their schedule with commercials.

    FYI, from Sling TV customer service: “Oxygen is available with the Lifestyle Extra add-on to Sling Blue service. It isn’t in the Lifestyle Extra add-on to Sling Orange. – Ian S “
