Watching Television in Spanish without Cable

Cord Cutting Guide for Spanish TV Content

 

Hola cortadores de cable de compañeros, cómo estás?

Whether you’re looking for entertainment in your native language or just someone looking for a little practice, it can be hard to find Spanish language content on television. Despite having to pay hundreds of dollars a month to cable providers, the number of Spanish language channels is few and far between.

If the dearth of Spanish language content on cable television has you thinking that your options would be even worse if you cut the cord, then set your mind at ease. Not only is there a wide selection of Spanish language content online, it often costs a lot less than cable.

Today we’re going to take a look at how you can cut the cord and still get all the Spanish language television and film that you crave. Let’s get started!

 

Over-the-Air Channels in Spanish

The cheapest way to watch Television in Spanish is to purchase an Over-the-Air (OTA) antenna. For those of you that don’t know, an OTA antenna picks up the signals from all the major broadcast networks, like ABC or CBS. Most antennas are very affordable, ranging from $30 to $60. I would recommend a Mohu Leaf 30 or the Winegard Elite 7550. Both of these are inexpensive, dependable, and do a great job picking up signals.

For Spanish language programming you can get free over the air with an antenna, the two television networks you’ll be looking for is Univision and Telemundo. They’ll have all the popular Spanish language shows you’re looking for; like Metastasis or La Gata.

Sadly, Telemundo and Univision are only accessible to about 50-60 percent of American homes so it won’t be uncommon to be missing one of those networks. Would you like to know what stations are in your area? Check out AntennaWeb and find out if Univision and Telemundo are available in your area.

If Univision and Telemundo are not in your area, don’t worry because there are a bunch of different ways to get access to these channels. And if you keep reading, you’ll find out.

 

Spanish Channels Streaming on Hulu Live TV

Hulu with Live TV is a newer live streaming service that offers a decent option for Spanish TV streaming. Right now, Hulu does not offer standalone Spanish language content, so you’ll have to subscribe to a base package and then add a Spanish add-on. Hulu Live TV costs $40 per month for 50+ channels. From there, get the Español Add-on for $4.99 per month to get:

  • CNN en Español
  • Discovery en Español
  • Discovery Familia
  • ESPN Deportes
  • History Channel en Español
  • NBC Universo

So, you’ll end up paying $45 per month for a great selection of English channels, and an okay selection of Spanish channels. See our Hulu Live TV review for more information. There’s also a free trial available.

 

Univision Now

In a move similar to CBS All Access, Univision has recently launched its own standalone streaming service call Univision Now. For $9.99 a month you get live and on-demand access to both Univision and UniMás. This includes live sports, news and all their regular programming.

With your subscription, you can watch on up to three screens simultaneously. You’ll also get some DVR functionality, with recorded programs lasting up to 72 hours. As far as device support goes, you can watch Univision Now on Roku, your PC, or smartphone. Start your free trial today!

DIRECTV NOW is one of the hottest streaming services to hit the market, and for good reason. Offering a bunch of Spanish speaking TV channels, DirecTV Now is a great cable TV alternative for Spanish speaking cord-cutters.

Here are a few of the channels available on their base-package called “Live a Little” ($40 a month):

Spanish Movies on Netflix

Netflix is a great go-to source for Spanish language content. Now if you have been using regular Netflix to find Spanish language content, it might be a little difficult. Unless you know exactly what to look for, you will most likely find content in English first, with a handful of things in Spanish. However, that can be easily fixed.

To get Netflix content delivered to you in Spanish, hop on the computer and go to https://www.netflix.com. Once you log in, go to My Account and scroll all the way to the bottom. Under My Profile, click the option that says Language. From there you should be able to change your preferred language to Spanish.

Quick Note: Not everything that is available in English is available in Spanish, but at the very least you’ll have an easier time finding things.

Cable TV providers no longer have a monopoly on live TV. Nowadays, there are many ways to gain access to the shows, sports and news you love, without having to pay a fortune for cable TV.

What is fuboTV?

fubotv product shot

fuboTV is an online streaming service that lets you watch live TV without a cable subscription. It works over the internet, and you’ll need a compatible device to use it. Once you’re set up, you can watch live sports, news, TV shows and more from many of TV’s most popular networks.

fuboTV is a paid service ($45/mo, 7-day free trial) that essentially acts as an alternative to cable TV. You don’t need a cable or satellite subscription to use fuboTV. All you need is a fuboTV subscription, reliable internet, and a compatible device (such as a streaming player, like a Roku or Apple TV). If you don’t want to buy a separate device, you can also use your computer or smartphone.

Like with cable, you’ll be able to watch LIVE television on fuboTV. You’ll get a bundle of 80+ channels, all of which you can watch live. The programming on these channels is identical to the programming on cable TV.

Here’s the fuboTV review at a glance:

  • Costs $45 per month
  • No contract or commitment
  • Gives you access to 80+ channels to watch live
  • Focused mostly on sports (soccer, NBA, MLB, NFL, cycling, etc.)
  • Sports networks like FS1, NBCSN, NBA TV, BeIn Sports and more are included
  • Other channels like FOX News, FX, AMC, Bravo, Food Network and more are also offered
  • Free cloud DVR to record live TV
  • Works on most devices – like Roku, Apple TV, smartphones, computers and more

Is fuboTV worth it? That depends on your preferences, but overall it’s an attractive service. The fuboTV price is $45/mo, which is far lower than the average cost of cable – and it offers a very similar number of channels. So if you’re thinking about getting rid of cable, you’ll want to read on to see if this is the right streaming service for your needs.

Our full 2018 fuboTV review below will help explain the details.

 

How fuboTV Works

fuboTV works over the internet. You need a reliable internet connection in order to use it. Here are the basics of how the service works:

  1. Sign up here for fuboTV (you will get a free 7-day trial)
  2. Select your channel package (choose from 80-100+ channels)
  3. Choose add-on packages, if desired
  4. Sign into your account
  5. Start watching live TV on your computer!
  6. Sign into your fuboTV account on other devices
  7. You can now watch LIVE TV on all your devices
  8. You can cancel your subscription at any time (pay month-to-month)

It really is as easy as that! Once it’s set up, fuboTV functions very similarly to cable. So what is fuboTV’s advantage over cable? Primarily it’s the lower cost and increased flexibility. Some 250,000+ subscribers have joined fuboTV for its lower cost and great selection of sports channels.

fuboTV also offers a way to browse by sport, instead of by channel. So for instance, if you want to watch soccer, you can browse what channels are currently playing a match quickly and easily. There’s also a familiar grid-like pattern to browse channels, which is similar to cable.

fuboTV Pros & Cons

Is fuboTV worth it? What do the fuboTV reviews from customers say about the service?

Pros

  • Great selection of sports channels, making it a great way to watch sports without cable
  • Local channels make it easy to watch major events, like the NFL Playoffs without cable
  • Excellent coverage of local sports teams
  • Great coverage of international sports that are hard to find elsewhere
  • Good selection of non-sports channels
  • Compatibility with most devices
  • Cheaper than cable
  • No-contract
  • Fairly easy to use

Cons

  • No ESPN coverage, which is a huge downside for many sports fans
  • Some channels are only in 30 frames per second, which may appear choppy
  • There are cheaper streaming services out there

fuboTV reviews from customers are solid overall, particularly from those who love sports. Keep in mind that fuboTV used to have a lot of issues with glitches, but most of them have been resolved. The service also used to be purely a soccer streaming service, rather than the full cable replacement it is today.

So, if you read a fuboTV review that’s older, it may be outdated. These services evolve rapidly, so it’s important to seek out the latest info before jumping to conclusions.

 

Is fuboTV Worth It?

fuboTV is a good service overall. It’s a great option for some folks, but it may or may not fit your needs. What is fuboTV offering to make it worthwhile?

Well, for sports fans, fuboTV offers a lot. This is particularly true for fans of international sports and local sports teams. Coverage of regional sports networks, NBC, FOX, etc. means you can follow many of your favorite local teams. Meanwhile, coverage of hard-to-find international networks means you can watch teams that are difficult to find even on cable TV.

With that said, fuboTV has one glaring issue: no ESPN! ESPN is the most popular sports network in the US. To not have it on a sports-focused service is odd to say the least.

Beyond that, fuboTV is a great service. If it fits your needs, we believe that it’s at least worth a try. Remember that fuboTV doesn’t require a contract, so you can cancel it if you end up not liking it!

And don’t forget, you can try fuboTV free for 7 days to see if you like it.

Sling TV new “Multi-Stream” Package

Streaming to multiple devices is no longer an issue with Sling TV’s Multi-Stream package

Sling TV Multi-Stream

One of my favorite online streaming services has to be Sling TV (click here for a free trial).  If you are new to the service, make sure you read our Sling TV review.

As a cord cutting sports fan, I have really appreciated being able to live stream ESPN and sporting events like March Madness without cable. But one thing about Sling TV that’s always bothered me has been the fact that I could only stream it on one device as a time; but that’s about to change.

Earlier this month, Sling TV unveiled a brand new streaming “default” package, appropriately named “Multi-Stream”. There are a few key differences between the Multi and Single stream packages, so let’s do a quick rundown on the changes
