Watching TBS on Roku with tbs.com/activate
TBS’s shows are available through skinny bundles that let you watch the channel live without the requirement of cable or satellite.
Hulu With Live TV
This is a popular live streaming service and well-established at that. It provides SVOD or streaming video on demand content as well and is a competent adversary to Netflix. Hulu waded into the skinny bundles market on their own when it saw huge potential. The channel comes with only one package at $39.99 per month that also includes TBS. You can go to the channel store on Roku to activate Hulu With Live TV.
Having been widely available on a range of platforms for longer than any of the others, Sling TV is considered as the elder statesman of the group. It also comes with a rather unique à la carte model. Users have two base packages to choose from the Sling Blue and Sling Orange. The Blue costs about $25 per month while the Orange is priced at $20 per month. Subscribe to both at $40 per month to get all of your favorite channels. Although, you can watch the TBS channel on both the packages.
