How to Watch TLC Without Paying for Cable TV




One of the most popular channels I have been asked about recently is TLC. Popular shows such as Cake Boss, Say Yes to the Dress, and Toddlers & Tiaras make it one of the most wanted channels on cable.

However, there is no reason to pay for cable TV just to watch TLC and its shows. There are many great options whether live or on-demand to watch when you want.

So here is how you can watch TLC and its shows without paying for cable TV and getting locked into a 2-year contract.

How to Watch TLC Live

The good news is TLC is available live with PlayStation Vue and DIRECTV NOW. Both offer a free trial and both offer TLC in their base package. My suggestion would be to check out both and see which one fits your needs.

PlayStation Vue offers a 5-day free trial and includes TLC in its base package.

DIRECTV NOW offers a 7-day free trial and includes TLC in its base package.

Both are contract free. Try them and cancel at any time.

How to Watch TLC On-Demand

Don’t care to watch it live? Want something a little less expensive? TLC has many of its shows on Hulu including some of its most popular such as Say Yes to the Dress and Cake Boss.

Just have one or two shows you really want on TLC? Buying a season pass on a service such as Amazon may be the way to go. Many seasons cost just $20, and you will own them for life.
