How To Watch USA Network Without Cable (As Cheap As Possible)


Streaming Better USA Network banner

The cheapest way to watch USA Network without cable is Sling TV. While there are a number of live TV streaming services that include USA Network with their packages, they do vary quite a lot in terms of the price.

Whether you’re looking to watch Monday Night Raw, Premier League games, Temptation Island, Chicago Fire, or Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, a subscription to USA Network is required.

The good thing about USA Network is that it is fairly widely available, as many of the most popular live TV streaming services do include the channel in their packages. In fact, Philo and Vidgo are the only major live TV streaming services that do not currently provide access to USA Network.

These two services aside, cost of a live TV package with access to USA Network ranges between $40 and $75 a month.

Live TV plans with access to USA Network

For those interested in a live TV plan with access to USA Network, below are your current options, from cheapest to the most expensive.

Cheapest way to watch USA Network

At $40 a month, Sling TV is the cheapest option for watching USA Network without cable. Sling TV has two main plans to choose from, Sling Blue and Sling Orange, with the main differences being the number and selection of channels.

For those specifically interested in watching USA Network, Sling Blue is the only plan that includes the channel.

In addition to USA Network, Sling Blue also unlocks access to more than 40 live TV channels in total, the ability to stream on multiple devices at the same time, access to an on demand library, and up to 50 hours of cloud DVR for recording.

While Sling TV is the cheapest option overall, there are other live TV services that offer access to USA Network, and some of their channel lineups and additional features may suit your needs better.

Other ways to watch USA Network

The next cheapest option to stream USA Network without cable is Hulu Live TV. However, at $69.99 a month, Hulu Live TV is considerably more expensive than Sling TV. One of the benefits with Hulu Live TV is that it does come with more channels overall, and subscribers also get access to Disney Plus, ESPN Plus, and the basic Hulu catalog as well.

If you are already paying for any of these additional subscriptions, and especially if paying for all of them, the savings on offer with the bundle can help to lower the Live TV portion of the subscription.

YouTube TV is currently the most popular live TV streaming service and it’s also the next cheapest option for watching USA Network. The base plan costs $72.99 a month and not only offers access to the USA, but more than 100 channels in total, an unlimited DVR, additional premium features, and the option to bundle NFL Sunday Ticket.

Lastly, both DirecTV Stream and Fubo also offer access to USA Network from $74.99 a month. While both of these live TV services offer more than one plan to choose from, the cheapest packages from both services include USA.

In DirecTV Stream’s case, that means signing up to the $74.99 a month Entertainment plan.

For those opting to go with Fubo, this will mean signing up to the $74.99 a month Pro plan.

It is worth noting that Fubo does charge an RSN fee in most locations these days. As a result, and even though the Pro plan is advertised as $74.99 a month, the actual price a home pays is likely to be higher.

USA Network and TV Everywhere

It is also possible to watch the live channel, as well as stream popular shows and movies on demand, directly through the USA Network website and mobile apps. A live TV subscription is still required to do this, as it is those credentials that unlock TV Everywhere access to USA.

While not every live TV streaming service provides TV Everywhere support for all of the channels it carries, this isn’t really an issue with USA Network.

Sling TV, Hulu Live TV, YouTube TV, DirecTV Stream, and Fubo subscribers can all use their live TV subscription to authenticate their account, and stream movies and shows through the USA Network app and website.
