Cord cutters: How to watch KDVR without cable or satellite
Have you said goodbye to cable or satellite, but want to keep watching FOX31 Denver? Don’t worry, there are still plenty of options.
We’re available on several streaming services. And if you’re looking to get rid of TV bills forever, there are some options for you, too.
The streaming services use geo-location to make sure you’re in the same area that gets KDVR with an antenna or cable. So, if you’re outside the Denver coverage area, you won’t be able to watch. We’ve included links with each listing below, so you can check before singing up.
Here are all the ways you can watch KDVR without cable or satellite:
How it works: DIRECTV Now is a streaming TV service similar to cable. It offers live channels and on-demand shows, but no DVR. You subscribe to a package of channels for a monthly fee. To watch on your TV, you need a compatible streaming device (listed below).
Cost: $35 to $70 per month, based on package. Month-to-month with no contract. Details on plans and costs.
Available on: Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, iPad, iPhone, Android, computers (using Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari). Details on devices and compatibility.
Hulu with Live TV
How it works: Hulu with Live TV takes the Hulu service that’s been around for years and adds live TV channels, like the ones you get from a cable service. There’s only one package and it comes with 50 hours of cloud DVR storage. To watch on your TV, you need a compatible streaming device (listed below).
Channels: KDVR (if you live in the coverage area – to check, go here and click “View all channels in your area”)… and these channels, too.
Cost: $39.99 per month. Month-to-month with no contract. Details on cost.
Available on: Apple TV, Chromecast, Xbox One, iPad, iPhone, Android. Details on devices and compatibility.
How it works: PlayStation Vue is another streaming TV service that works a lot like cable, but comes completely over the internet. There are four packages, offering up to 90+ channels, and all come with cloud DVR service. Despite the name, you don’t need a PlayStation to subscribe. To watch on your TV, you do need a compatible streaming device (listed below).
Channels: KDVR (if you live in the coverage area – to check, visit this page and make sure your city/town is correct in the upper right of the page)… and a bunch more.
Cost: $34.99 to $74.99 per month, based on package. Month-to-month with no contract. Details on plans and costs.
Available on: Apple TV, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Chromecast, iPad, iPhone, Android, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, web browsers. Details on devices and compatibility.
How it works: It’s just like how your parents (or grandparents) used to watch, except the picture quality is so much better. You’ll need to buy an antenna (details below) and hook it up to your TV. In many places, you can get KDVR, KWGN, (along with our digital channels Antenna TV, This TV, and Comet TV) and other channels for free in HD.
Channels: It all depends on where you live. Your distance from the transmitter, your elevation, and other factors can affect which channels you get. KDVR & KWGN can be received using an antenna in many places. Use this tool to see the channels you can get where you live.
Cost: Free, after you buy an antenna. Use this tool to help find an antenna that will pick up channels where you live.
Live streaming newscasts
How it works: Both FOX31 and Channel 2 live stream all our local newscasts online and in our app. There’s even a DVR feature so you can watch the latest newscast after it airs. Plus, there’s no location restriction, so you can even watch outside Colorado.
