Cord-cutters can watch OAN live without cable using one of the following two options: AT&T TV Now or KlowdTV. You can also watch a wide selection of OAN video clips on the network’s YouTube channel. In this article, we’ll help you decide which streaming option is best for OAN. Let’s get started.

Given there are only two options to watch OAN live without cable, you’ll want to strongly consider making AT&T TV Now the service you want. There are some benefits and some drawbacks to AT&T TV Now for subscribers who want OAN, however, which we’ll lay out in more detail below.
There might be a bit of sticker shock with AT&T TV Now but bear with us here. The price starts at $55 per month for 40+ channels, but unfortunately, you won’t get OAN at that price range.

AT&T TV Now does not offer OAN until you hit the $93 per month package tier. That package offers 65+ channels, including OAN.

The aspect that makes AT&T TV Now a superior option to KlowdTV is the channels you’ll get. KlowdTV is much cheaper, but if you want a cord-cutting option with TV networks you want to watch, AT&T TV Now is your best option. It includes OAN alongside other major TV networks, like HGTV, ESPN, Discovery Channel, History Channel, Fox Sports, Fox Business Network, Hallmark Channel, MotorTrend, and many others you may hope to find.

There are tens of thousands of on-demand videos to view through AT&T TV Now. This comes in two flavors. First, AT&T owns a large cache of content that it makes available through its on-demand library. Secondly, most channels in the package offer older and newer-released content on-demand through the service. Beyond that, AT&T TV Now is TV Everywhere supported, allowing you to watch more content directly through your favorite channels’ websites or apps.

KlowdTV is one of the newest streaming services on the market and one of the only that delivers a conservative message. It’s also a low-cost option to watch OAN live without cable and, like AT&T TV Now, one of the few services that have made the executive decision to add OAN to their package.
KlowdTV Pricing and Packages
OAN has several pricing tiers available, all of which carry OAN.
- Premium + PPV: $9.99 per month, 85+ channels
- Worldwide: $4.99 per month, 8 channels
- US Military Abroad: FREE, 1 channel (OAN)
- Free 2020 Package: FREE, 9 channels
Since all of these channels carry OAN, it’s mostly down to which you most prefer or which one works with where you currently live.
KlowdTV is cheap for a very good reason: Its channel package leaves much to be desired. Although you do get OAN for a low price (even free, if you want), the channels beyond OAN are lackluster, to say the least.
There are no sports networks on KlowdTV. You also won’t get access to local broadcast networks like ABC, CBS, or NBC (which you can at least still supplement with a TV antenna). As for cable networks, you’ll get a few well-known options like QVC, Law & Crime, Pop, Game Show Network, RT, Cheddar, CourtTV, InfoWars, NASA TV, and Blaze TV. But major networks like ESPN, Disney Channel, HBO, Discovery, History, etc, simply aren’t available through any KlowdTV package.
KlowdTV Supported Devices
While new, KlowdTV has fairly good device support. Stream on iOS and Android devices, Roku, Samsung Smart TVs, LG Smart TVs, and the Xbox One gaming consoles, and most updated laptop or desktop web browsers.
KlowdTV Simultaneous Streams
The service doesn’t provide any information on simultaneous streaming limits. However, in testing, we found that it supports at least 3 simultaneous streams, if not more. Notably, 3 streams per account is the current industry average without paying extra for more streams.
KlowdTV does not currently offer a DVR option. Instead, it provides what it calls “Jump Back” DVR. This DVR-like service automatically records live content from a select number of channels. That content is then available to stream on-demand at any time for 14 days. AT&T TV Now has a similar feature for many channels, with a 72-hour time limit.
KlowdTV On-Demand Library
You won’t find much content on-demand through KlowdTV. Unfortunately, the service is still very limited on this end. The on-demand options are primarily restricted to what’s available through the “Jump Back” DVR. However, if you subscribe to the Premium + PPV package, you will have some more options than with the free package. Channels like Cine Sony will give you some additional on-demand content.
How to Watch OAN on Amazon Fire TV
You can watch OAN live without cable on Amazon Fire TV with either AT&T TV Now or KlowdTV. You may also be able to use YouTube if you only want to watch a few video clips. Check reviews on Amazon’s app store to learn more about how other users feel about each service and app.
How to Watch OAN on Roku
You can watch OAN on Roku with one of these streaming services: AT&T TV Now or KlowdTV. Beware of Roku scams if you’re setting up a Roku for the first time! Roku setup is free, so you don’t need to pay Roku or others to install and set up a new Roku device.
How to Watch OAN on Apple TV
You can watch OAN on Apple TV with one of these streaming services: AT&T TV Now or KlowdTV. Your Apple TV app should run smoothly on any current generation Apple TV device, although KlowdTV does not offer any 4K content that would make an Apple TV 4K worth the purchase.
Watch KlowdTV on YouTube
Considering you can get KlowdTV and several other channels free throughout the remainder of 2020, there’s no good reason to default to the free YouTube content. However, should it be necessary, KlowdTV puts a fair amount of recorded video content from its live stream onto its YouTube channel.
Why Are There So Few Options for OAN?
The network is working hard to get its channel added to more cord-cutting services so that subscribers can watch OAN live without cable. However, there’s currently a strong bias against the type of reporting and content that OAN provides. While the network is cheap to offer, that bias is a significant roadblock for OAN and its viewers.
OAN has a spot on its homepage where you can get contact information for cable TV providers to help support getting the network added to their packages.
