How to Watch Comedy Central Without Paying for Cable TV




Viacom, the parent company that owns Comedy Central, recently has made it increasingly difficult for cord cutters to watch its content.

In the last few months Viacom has removed its channels from both PlayStation Vue and Hulu’s streaming services.

So, although it is harder to find, cord cutters still have several options to watch Comedy Central shows such as “The Daily Show.”

Comedy Central On-Demand

Roku, Fire TV, & Apple TV

Comedy Central has an app for all the major streaming devices, and it offers some 100% free content. If you have a log in for a cable service you can get even more; however, you will still find a selection of episodes 100% free.

The following are links to the apps:

How to Watch Comedy Central Live


You will be able to find Comedy Central in all of the DIRECTV NOW packages starting at $35 a month. They also include video on-demand of Comedy Central shows.

If you want to give it a try, DIRECTV NOW offers a 7-day free trial so you can test it before you pay.

Sling TV

Sling TV also offers Comedy Central in all of its packages. Starting at just $20 a month you can get Comedy Central and some on-demand content.

Sling TV offers a 7-day trial as well, so you can see if it is right for you before you pay. (Would cable ever let you try it in your house before you pay for it?)

Hopefully this has helped you find a channel you have been looking for.
