Want to ditch cable TV but still access to your favorite channels such as Animal Planet? We have good news for you. Now you can watch Animal Planet and many other popular channels without a long-term contract from cable TV.

The following is our guide on how to watch Animal Planet as a cord cutter.

Animal Planet Live

You can find Animal Planet on several live TV streaming services including PlayStation Vue and DIRECTV NOW.

Not sure what service is right for you? We suggest you give them both a try and see what works for you.

PlayStation Vue offers a 5-day free trial so you can test it out before you pay.

DIRECTV NOW offers a 7-day free trial allowing you to test it out before you pay.

Animal Planet On Demand

Both Hulu and Netflix offer a handful of Animal Planet shows, but you will find the selection to be limited. If you only really want one or two shows, the least expensive way is to buy a season pass on a service such as Amazon Video. You may have to pay $20 or $30 upfront for a full season, but it’s less expensive than paying $30 every month to watch the show.

Hopefully this guide helps you find what you are looking for. If you want other channels, check out our full guide to live TV as a cord cutter HERE.
