Here’s today’s top TV to stream, plus where to watch and how to get access (even for free or without cable).
Today’s TV watchlist of the top shows, sports, and movies to stream is in the table below. You’ll find channels, times, live streams, and — if you don’t have cable or want to watch for free — the best ways to get access.
It’s a very busy TV weekend, so get your DVR ready because there’s no way you’ll be able to fit everything in. First up, we have season premieres of The Leftovers (Season 3), Doctor Who (Season 10), and Veep (Season 6).
There are also 3 new series premiering this weekend. For all you Doctor Who fans, the spin-off series Class premieres on Saturday, immediately after the Doc’s season comeback. The White Princess, a prequel to The White Queen, debuts on Starz. And the new drama series Guerrilla arrives on Showtime.
For sports fans, there’s a great lineup of NBA playoff games. Plus, the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs are underway, with Games 2 and 3 happening this weekend. Finally, there’s plenty of MLB baseball to stream, and a UFC fight on Saturday night. See today’s live sports cheat-sheet for quick, easy access to stream all of today’s events.
If you’re in a movie mood, The Imitation Game is streaming for free on Channel 4. There Will Be Blood is now available on Amazon Prime Video. And Blazing Saddles — still funny — is now out on Netflix.
Lastly, don’t miss the Grammy salute to the Bee Gees and the Beverly Hills Dog Show.
Whew! Have a good weekend.
Don’t Have A TV Login Or Subscription?
If something you want to stream requires login with a TV provider, or a paid subscription, and you don’t have one, don’t fret. You can probably still watch it. Here are your best options:
1. Kodi. You can use Kodi to stream virtually any show, sports event, or movie — for free — live or on-demand. See how to get started with Kodi. If you’re familiar with Kodi, then see our list of the best Kodi add-ons for reliable sources to watch what you want. If you’re mostly interested in watching live, see our Kodi live TV guide.
2. Streaming services. You may be able to get access for cheap by using a steaming service in place of cable/satellite TV. See today’s best cable TV alternatives for an overview of the options. Take advantage of the free trials to test them out and stream free TV for a while.
Here’s the short-list, in case you’re in a hurry:

Watch Today’s TV On-Demand
If you have cable, try the website of the network airing the show you want to watch. Networks often have full episodes of shows available to stream on-demand after logging in with your TV provider.
You can also use Kodi to watch virtually any TV show on-demand. Kodi has legal issues of its own, but when used the smart way it’s much safer than downloading TV episodes from a piracy site. We recommend you avoid illegal downloading, as you can get sued and slapped with hefty fines. See our Kodi guide for beginners to get started.
