How to Watch Live Sports on TBS Without Cable

Written by Derek Fleming

As Turner Media becomes more active in the sports world, TNT and TBS are becoming must have channels for sports fans. TBS features a nationally televised Tuesday Night MLB game, USA soccer, NCAA men’s basketball, NHL matchups, and more. You can live stream TBS on most major streaming devices, including Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Samsung Smart TV, iPhone, and more.

Although several live TV streaming services carry TBS in their channel lineup, our top pick, Sling TV Blue, is the most cost effective way to live stream both TBS and TNT. If you don’t mind paying more every month, DIRECTV STREAM “Choice,” with its extensive lineup of regional sports network in addition to TBS, is another good option for sports fans who want to watch in-market broadcasts of their favorite NHL, NBA, and MLB teams.

Watching TBS live online: our top picks

Personally, this is the package I would go with to stream TBS, mainly because DIRECTV STREAM “Choice” offers a regional sports network lineup that is complimentary to the live sports lineup featured on TNT and TBS.

For example, if you want to watch Tuesday Night Baseball on TBS, there is a good chance you also want to watch the weekly games played by your local MLB team. DIRECTV STREAM has the most coverage for in-market MLB, NHL, and NBA games, which makes it a good value for sports fans in many markets, especially NY with the YES Network, and cities with Bally Sports RSNs.

Hulu + Live TV carries TNT and TBS in the base package, as well as NBC owned regional sports networks.

Sling Blue is our top pick for live streaming TBS and TNT. Cord cutting sports fans can save about $400 per year with Sling Blue vs. competing platforms.

YouTube TV carries both TBS and TNT in the base package.
