If you are looking to stream The Weather Channel then Frndly TV is the best bet right now. With events like Hurricane Laura taking place, there has been an increase in demand recently for streaming access to live weather news and updates through channels like The Weather Channel. However, options remain limited for those without a TV or cable package.

For those looking to stream The Weather Channel at the lowest possible price, then Frndly TV is going to be worth checking out. This is a streaming service that provides live and on-demand access to fifteen “family-friendly” channels, including The Weather Channel.

Frndly TV starts at $5.99 per month, making it a very affordable solution, although those who want HD quality or access to cloud DVR will need to opt for one of the more expensive plans, priced at $7.99 and $9.99 per month.

Generally speaking, Frndly TV seems to come with a decent enough level of device support, although not all platforms and devices are compatible. Right now, Frndly TV can be downloaded on the following platforms:

  • Amazon Fire TV
  • Android (but not Android TV)
  • Apple TV
  • iOS
  • Roku

Frndly TV does offer a seven-day free trial.

What about Hulu Live, YouTube TV, and fuboTV

While many networks and channels can be accessed via the main live TV streaming services, The Weather Channel is one of the notable exceptions. For example, neither Hulu Live TV nor YouTube TV currently carry The Weather Channel. Likewise, neither does Sling TV, or Vidgo.

Technically, AT&T TV NOW does, but not with either of its main Plus or Max packages. AT&T TV NOW subscribers would need to change to the “Choice” plan with the price starting at $110 per month, making it a non-starter for many.

In fact, the only real (and affordable) way to get The Weather Channel through one of the major live TV streaming services is fuboTV. Unlike the other major options, fuboTV’s channel lineup does include The Weather Channel and it is available with the Family plan, priced at $64.99 per month.

Therefore, those specifically interested in getting access to The Weather Channel, bundled with a main live TV streaming subscription, fuboTV is the best option.
