In case you ever wonder if you’ve seen it all, the newest documentary on HBO is about to prove you wrong. Tickled premiers on February 27 at 10 p.m. ET on HBO and it isn’t what you think it is. The feature-length documentary follows the world of professional, competitive tickling. Yep, that’s right. Tickling. So to watch Tickle online and see what this is all about, we have your guide.

Here is what we know about how to watch the Tickled live stream without cable.

Stream Tickled on DIRECTV NOW

DIRECTV NOW is one of the newest streaming services to hit the market. Unlike the DIRECTV traditional service, you don’t need a satellite for this product. All you need to watch Tickled online is a high speed internet connection and the HBO Add-On for just $5.

The base package for DIRECTV NOW is $35 for a package of over 60 channels. This is a little more expensive than the competition, but that is a lot of channels. Since HBO is an add-on feature, you can select the package of channels that is right for you.

The service is still new, so they are adding features and devices. We do know that they have some special deals on streaming players for prepaid customers, so check out the link for more details.

Another popular option for HBO and Tickled streaming is Sing TV. Like its competition, HBO is an add-on channel with the subscription to one of their main packages, either Sling Blue or Sling Orange.

These packages start at $20 or $25 per month. HBO is an additional $15 per month.

You get live streaming HBO plus access to their complete on-demand HBO library, just like you would with the HBO GO product for cable subscribers. It is also the same content as HBO NOW, which we will discuss below.

Sling works with most major streaming players on the market, such as Apple TV and Roku. In fact, they frequently have deals for free or discounted players, so check those out.

PlayStation Vue can be streamed on players like your PS3 or PS4 console, Chromecast, Roku, and iOS or Android devices. There is no Apple TV support available at this time.

Watch Ticked Online with HBO NOW

HBO NOW review

Since it is a feature-length documentary, there isn’t a way to watch Tickled episodes. It is all or nothing, unless you can watch on demand and pause to take a break. That’s possible with the stand-alone HBO NOW service that offers fans a way to watch the entire current and back catalog of HBO content streaming at home without cable.

Technically, HBO NOW won’t have a Tickled live stream, but you can access shows at the same time they air live on the network. The premier of Tickled air time is 10 p.m. ET on February 27.

You can get all of this for just $14.99 per month.

How Else Can You Watch Tickled Channel Without Cable?

As of right now, there isn’t another way to watch Tickled online without access to one of the HBO subscription options. HBO makes it easy to stream without cable, but you need to access it legally through one of the paid channels.
