With a reputation for integrity and solid programming for women, and especially people of color, OWN has gained a loyal following.

Without cable, how can you watch the OWN live stream? There is good news. Here are a few ways you can do that conveniently and affordably.

Watch OWN Streaming Live on PlayStation Vue

Playstation Vue

PlayStation Vue, a product of Sony, can turn your gaming console into a complete cable replacement tool. OWN is part of the service’s basic Access package, which starts at only $29.99 per month for most viewers. For viewers in 7 U.S. markets, the basic cost is $39.99 per month but you also get live local channels. Everyone else gets access to on-demand, next day access to FOX, NBC, and ABC.

With PlayStation Vue, you can stream OWN on Roku as well as a number of other connected devices like PS3/PS4, iOS and Android devices, Amazon Fire TV, and Chromecast. As of right now, you can’t watch OWN on Apple TV since there is no Vue support for the device, but we’re watching out for it.

There are some limitations that PlayStation Vue users need to be aware of before making the decision. The service is tied to your home network. Even if you want to stream OWN or other networks through your mobile devices, it will be restricted while you’re away from home.


Is OWN on Hulu?


You cannot currently stream OWN shows on Hulu. But there are a lot of reasons to consider this popular streaming service anyway. Hulu has tons of current and past hit TV shows as well as a number of originals that can all be watched on-demand on your own schedule. It is available on most streaming devices. It is only $7.99 per month with limited commercials, or you can pay $11.99 for the service with no interruptions. You can try Hulu free for 7 days to see if it’s for you.


Where Else can I Watch OWN Online?

While PlayStation Vue is the only way you can watch the OWN live stream, there may be other offerings in the future. Services like Sling TV update their offerings regularly and new services, such as VIDGO and DirecTV Now, are scheduled to launch sometime soon.

You may also be able to watch individual episodes of your favorite OWN shows on Amazon Prime or Netflix. Search for shows using our online tool.
