How to Watch The Weather Channel & Local Now on Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, & More




One of the channels we get many requests for is The Weather Channel on Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, and more without cable TV. The weather-focused network is still popular and one of the harder channels to get if you do not have a subscription to a traditional pay-TV service such as cable TV.

We have good news! Now cord cutters do have options to watch The Weather Channel after they ditch their high cable TV bill.


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.

Local Now

The Weather Channel now has a new channel called Local Now. This channel plays a collection of local weather, news, sports, and other short-form content. During major weather events in your area, Local Now will also often show a live feed from The Weather Channel.

You can find Local now on Sling TV and FuboTV. (Note the new owners of The Weather Channel have stated Local Now will be added to YouTube TV. At this time that has not happened yet.)


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.
