SyFy (previously known as Sci-Fi Channel and renamed to SyFy in 2009), is an American cable channel, which, as the name indicates, specializes in the speculative genres. If you have checked out their content and are excited to watch their shows, such as Resident Alien which is going to start airing on the 27th of January, but have no cable subscription, go no further Here are five ways to watch SyFy without cable:

Watch SyFy Channel Without Cable on YouTube TV

While not as economic as it used to be, YouTube TV is still an option for watching SyFy if you're no longer interested in cable TV subscriptions. With a choice of more than 70 channels, YouTube allows you to access SyFy programs – and it has a decent selection of on-demand content as well.

There is a single package choice, but it's a handy one; it allows up to 3 simultaneous submissions and it's available on a variety of devices, such as Android devices, Roku, and Apple TV. YouTube TV comes at $64.99 monthly.

Watch SyFy Channel Without Cable on Hulu

If you are using Hulu to stream your favorite series or if you're thinking of subscribing, the "Hulu with Live TV" program might be a good option for you. This package includes many other popular channels apart from Syfy, while it also comes with a large on-demand library.

Both allow for up to 3 simultaneous viewings from different devices. The plans include channels such as History channel and HBO. The AT&T TV NOW Plus comes at $55 per month while Max costs $80 per month.

Watch SyFy Channel Without Cable on Sling TV

Watch SyFy Channel Without Cable on FuboTV

FuboTV offers a wide range of features and three different packages. Like Hulu with Live TV and YouTubeTV, the most economic option that allows you to access SyFy comes at $64.99 monthly.

The Ultra option contains 196 channels and is pricier by $20. Both allow 3 simultaneous streams.

Watch SyFy Channel Without Subscription to a Major Network


Finally, if you are using none of these networks, the SyFy App might be an option for you. Just bear in mind that you have to sign in with TV Everywhere first to stream your favorite SyFy shows.

Some find the app dysfunctional on certain devices, but it can still be a handy option that allows you to watch Resident Alien and other great SyFy shows from your device of choice!
