In the old days, you had to have cable to access a network like NBC. How else can you get the local news and watch new episodes of shows like Law & Order and America's Got Talent? And forget about watching reruns of The Tonight Show and Saturday Night Live—there are just some things that have to be seen right as it's happening with everybody else.

But as great as cable is, it was also a pain to work with. Thankfully, the tangled wires, hefty prices, and overlong contracts that came with cable are now things of the past. These days, the easier alternative is to go cordless. Contrary to popular belief, you can watch live and local channels like NBC just as easily on streaming platforms.

To watch NBC Live without cable, you can sign up for any of the cord-cutting services below. You can cancel them anytime or, if you want, try them out for free. We've listed everything you need to know about them, including the other channels they carry besides NBC and their current prices, to help you pick the service that best suits your needs.

DirecTV Stream

DirecTV Stream is a streaming service that offers everything from live TV, local channels, on-demand films, sports packages, and even premium cable networks like HBO and Starz for an additional fee. Its plans, which start at $70/month, are on the pricier side of live TV, but that’s because it offers unlimited DVR and streams on top of at least 75 channels, depending on the plan you pick.
