How To Watch OAN Without DirecTV: Your Best Options

If you’re a DirecTV subscriber with an OAN package you need to read this article. Why? Because on April 2022, DirecTV will no longer offer One America News Network or OAN channel on their platform. 

Based in San Diego, California and owned by Herring Networks Inc., One America News Network has been broadcasting since 2013. Recently, the contract between DirecTV and Herring Networks, Inc. was no longer renewed. Hence, OAN will no longer be on the DirecTV channel list.

However, if you rely on OAN as your main source of news information on TV, it doesn’t have to be a setback. You can watch OAN on streaming platforms Pluto, KlowdTV, Vidgo, and DirecTV Stream Entertainment. Read on to see which service is best for you.

OAN on Pluto

If you are looking for a viable replacement to cable TV and all the associated fees, Pluto TV is a very good option.

Pluto TV is a free “over-the-top” (OTT) or online live streaming service and you heard it right. Pluto TV is free! What makes it more exciting is this free streaming platform carries the One America News Network. Pluto also offers a wide variety of content. 

This live streaming platform, owned by Paramount, is supported by ads. Pluto TV has more than 250 live channels and other on-demand movies and TV shows. This includes Paramount Plus Pick, Star Trek and Black Cinema. Other channels include news, sports, entertainment, kid’s channels and even music. New channels are added frequently like Vevo True School Hip-Hop and CBS News Miami.

You can stream Pluto TV anytime. All you need is a web browser, smart TV, streaming box or stick start watching shows and movies right away. Moreover, you don’t need to sign up, register your email address or input any payment methods.

The only drawback is Pluto TV doesn’t offer a DVR storage feature. There will always be limitations if you are getting a service for free. If you’re thinking of having Pluto TV as a cable replacement, this option may work for you but not for others. You can use Pluto TV as a stand alone service or as a great supplement to another streaming services you already have.
