Some content does require a log in through a TV provider to watch, but these shows are clearly marked with a key. Despite this, there are hours of free content that you can enjoy.


NBC was once considered the home of ?Must See TV,? but it is also a great place for free to watch TV shows.
Like the other TV apps, the NBC TV app works with free users, with new episodes unlocked eight days after they air on the channel for free streaming. This means that you can catch up with Saturday Night Live, Will & Grace, and This is US along with other current shows and classic series.

Some content remains locked behind a key icon, but the NBC app allows users who?ve registered to watch three locked episodes of any show for free for up to a month without needing to log in.
The NBC app is compatible with Android, iOS, Amazon Fire, Android TV, Apple TV, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Vizio TVs, Amazon Alexa Skill, and Samsung Smart TVs.

The CW

Whether you can?t miss the latest episode in the Arrow-verse, need to gather every piece of the Riverdale puzzle or hunt with the Winchesters on Supernatural, you can catch up using the CW streaming app for free. The available episodes vary depending on the last air date on the network. So, if you?re planning a Riverdale binge session, you will need to either wait for reruns or sign up for Netflix.

One area where CW stands apart from many other TV apps is how quickly the network puts the content on to the app platform. Many apps make you wait up to a week for the latest episodes, but the CW typically puts the latest episodes on the app platform around 11 pm PST on the nights they air.
The CW app is available on Android, AirPlay, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, iOS, Windows 8, Google Chromecast, Roku, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.

This means that you can browse Sports, Entertainment, or News with each of these sections packed with high quality channels. Some of the channels you may recognize from your cable package, and a few may be new to you. For example, there is an MSNBC feed.

One of the downsides of canceling your cable or satellite television package is that you can lose your access to local news.
If there is a local event or even a weather emergency, these local channels provide an invaluable resource.
