How to Watch The Weather Channels Coverage of Hurricane Irma Without Cable TV

Hurricane Irma could be the first cat 5 hurricane to hit the US in many years. Recently many of our readers have been wondering how to access The Weather Channel without a 2 year TV contract of cable TV. So I wanted to take a minute and lay out your options to watch The Weather Channel without a long term cable TV contract.

Here is how you can watch The Weather Channel’s coverage of Hurricane Irma without subscribing to cable TV.


DIRECTV NOW has The Weather Channel in the following packages: Just Right, Go Big, and Gotta Have It. With these subscriptions, you can get full access to The Weather Channel with a live feed of the hurricane Irma coverage. They do have apps on most streaming players including Roku, Chromecast, Fire TV, and Apple TV.

DIRECTV NOW offers a 7 day free trial of its service.


The last option is Fubo TV and its new Fubo Premier plan. There you will find The Weather Channel available on its $35-a-month package.

Once again cord cutting is becoming easier and easier. Just a few months ago there weren’t any options outside of cable to watch The Weather Channel.

    I did another Direct TV trial just to watch Hurricane coverage. Easy enough to switch around email addresses and do different trials when really wanting ‘CableTV’ for a week.

    Honestly, I think theses articles with titles that contain “How to watch ‘something’ without Cable TV” are very misleading. Most of them just refer you back to some sort of paid streaming service and in reality are just click bait because IMHO when people read these headlines they are looking for ways to watch the content without paying anything, which is the true spirit of cord cutting.

    If you want to be technical about it, having a satelite subscription with DirecTV or Dish isn’t Cable TV either, so you should list those services as options. Otherwise my humble suggestion would be to offer up ways to view the content without a paid service, even if it is just a trial or stop the borderline false headlines.

    Roku now includes a channel that carries local news casts from numerous cities. One is Channel 10 (local ABC) in Miami. That channel has created a special one hour loop (updated 2 or 3 times/day) focusing only on hurricane. Name of streaming channel is “NewsOn”.
    Wife flew to our Miami home a week ago. I was due to join her by taking red eye out last nite. JetBlue let me cancel – but wanted to see first hand what was going on. Weather channels cover the whole world.
