So how do you watch TNT when you don’t have cable?
In this post I’ll discuss these top 4 options, go over the advantages of each, and show you which is the least expensive way to get TNT, so you know which streaming service is best for you.
4 Cheapest Ways To Watch TNT
Sling TV – The Cheapest Way To Stream TNT
The most affordable way to stream TNT live is by subscribing to Sling TV, which starts at $40 per month for the Sling Orange package or Sling Blue package, both of which carry TNT and sister station TBS. You can also watch TNT on the Sling Orange & Blue package, though that would increase the price to $55 per month.
Sling offers three live TV streaming packages
- Sling Orange ($40/mo) – 31 channels including TNT, TBS, ESPN, and Disney
- Sling Blue ($40/mo) – 39 Channels including TNT, TBS, NFL Network, FS1, FX
- Sling Orange & Blue ($55/mo) – 43 Channels including all of the above
Each of these packages includes a different mix of channels, so you can choose the plan that is best for you.
The good news is that each of these packages includes TNT (and TBS), so just choose the package that contains the other channels you’re looking for.
One important thing to note about Sling TV is that local channels are not included in any of the three packages, so you’ll need to watch them on an HD antenna or look to a more expensive service if local channels are a deal breaker for you.
Aside from the channels, the biggest difference between Sling Orange and Sling Blue is that Sling Blue channels allow up to three simultaneous streams, while Sling Orange allows just one. If you’re planning on watching TNT on different devices at the same time then Blue might be a better option.
With all of their packages, Sling TV includes 50 hours of DVR so you can record your favorite shows and watch them back on any device.
The next way to get TNT is Hulu + Live TV, which includes over 85 channels of live TV for $69.99 per month.
While $70 per month is a pretty sizeable jump up from Sling TV, Hulu does include a lot of things Sling doesn’t like local channels and unlimited DVR.
Hulu + Live TV also includes Disney+ and ESPN+, which would cost $21 per month if you subscribed separately. This is a great option for both sports fans and families with young kids (or just enjoy Disney programming).
Aside from TNT, Hulu + Live TV includes many popular channels like TBS, ESPN, FS1, NFL Network, HGTV, TLC, and History. These channels can be watched on up to 2 simultaneous devices at one time.
The next cheapest option to watch TNT is YouTube TV, which offers over 100 channels of live TV for $72.99 per month.
Of all the streaming options I’ve tested, I found YouTube TV’s interface to be the easiest to navigate so if you like simplicity YouTube TV might be the right option for you.
YouTube TV includes TNT as well as many popular channels like TBS, ESPN, FS1, FS2, NFL Network, NBA TV, USA Network, HGTV, and more. It also includes unlimited DVR which can be watched on any device.
One YouTube TV feature that I really like is that subscriptions can be shared across 6 different accounts, with each account having its own personal unlimited DVR. It should be noted however that channels can only be watched on up to 3 devices simultaneously.
The last, and most expensive, live TV streaming option that includes TNT is DirecTV Stream, which offers up to 140 channels starting at $74.99 per month.
Of all the options I’ve discussed, DirecTV Stream’s channel packages include the most sports channels including standards like ESPN, FS1, FS2, NBA TV, and NHL Network, but also include regional sports networks in many markets so you can watch all the games of your favorite NBA, NHL and MLB teams where available.
Although DirecTV Stream can get pricey – their most expensive plan is $110 per month – it may be worth it to you if you watch a lot of TV, especially sports and movie channels.
What sets DirecTV Stream apart is that they allow unlimited simultaneous streams at your home, so no fighting over the TV. If you’re out of the house you can stream up to 3 devices at the same time. DirecTV Stream also includes unlimited DVR.
