Weather is a huge part of our everyday life. As summer gets started across the northern hemisphere, it is even more important. Now cord cutters have more options than ever to get all the weather coverage they need.
The following is my quick guide to getting weather coverage as a cord cutter.
The Weather Channel
The Weather Channel is still the most watched weather service in America. Cord cutters can now legally watch the Weather Channel without paying for cable TV.
Both Fubo TV and DIRECTV NOW offer a live feed of the Weather Channel. The best part is they both offer a free 7-day trial so you can test them out. Not only will you get the Weather Channel, but you will find many other great news and information channels.
Local weather is often the best weather to see what is happening in your hometown. The first option is always a great antenna to get your local station. Not sure what locals you can get? Check out AntennaRecommendations.com to see what kind of antenna you will need.
Sadly locals are not always available over the air. NewsON is a free service currently available on Roku and many smart phones. With NewsON you can stream your local news for free live and on demand, giving you access to all the news you need every day.
If the weather event is major news, you may also find coverage on many news stations. You should check out our full guide to watching news as a cord cutter for more options.
