Cutting the Cord: Watch CNBC Live on Your Computer without Cable

With the rise of streaming services and online platforms, more and more people are choosing to cut the cord and ditch their cable subscriptions. If you’re a fan of CNBC and want to stay up-to-date with the latest financial news and market updates, you might be wondering how you can watch CNBC live on your computer without cable. In this article, we will explore some options that allow you to stay connected to CNBC even after cutting the cord.

Streaming Services

One of the easiest ways to watch CNBC live on your computer without cable is by subscribing to a streaming service that offers live TV channels. Several popular streaming services like Hulu + Live TV, YouTube TV, Sling TV, and fuboTV provide access to CNBC along with other news channels.

These streaming services not only offer a wide range of channels but also provide additional features like cloud DVR, which allows you to record your favorite shows for later viewing. To watch CNBC live on your computer using these services, all you need is a stable internet connection and a compatible device such as a laptop or desktop computer.

CNBC Website and Apps

Another option is to visit the official CNBC website or download their mobile apps for iOS or Android devices. The CNBC website offers a live stream of their channel, allowing you to watch it directly from your computer’s browser without any subscription or login required.

If you prefer watching on-the-go, the CNBC mobile apps are an excellent choice. Simply download the app onto your smartphone or tablet, sign in with your cable provider credentials (if prompted), and enjoy live streaming of CNBC wherever you are.

Network Websites

Many network websites offer free access to live streams of their channels for viewers who don’t have a cable subscription. While not all networks provide this service for free, it’s worth checking if NBCUniversal (CNBC’s parent company) offers a live stream of CNBC on their website.

By visiting the NBCUniversal website, you may be able to watch CNBC live on your computer without needing a cable subscription. Keep in mind that some network websites might require you to create an account or sign in using your social media profiles to access their live streams.

Over-the-Air Antenna

If you’re looking for a completely free option, consider using an over-the-air (OTA) antenna to watch CNBC live on your computer. OTA antennas allow you to pick up local channels, including CNBC, in high definition without the need for a cable subscription.

To use an OTA antenna, you’ll need to connect it to your computer’s TV tuner card or purchase an external TV tuner device. Once connected, scan for available channels in your area, and if CNBC is available locally, you can watch it live on your computer.


Cutting the cord doesn’t mean you have to miss out on watching CNBC live. With streaming services, network websites, mobile apps, and OTA antennas at your disposal, there are plenty of options available for enjoying CNBC’s financial news and market updates right from your computer. Choose the method that suits your needs and preferences best and stay informed about the latest happenings in the world of finance.
