How to Watch The Weather Channel’s Tropical Storm Fred & Grace Coverage Live For Free on Apple TV, Roku, Fire TV, iOS, & Android
Tropical Storm Fred is approaching the Florida Panhandle on Monday, while at the same time, Grace is moving across parts of the Caribbean that have been devastated by a major earthquake over the weekend. Both storms are expected to affect parts of the Gulf Coast regions of the United States over the course of this week.
That means it’s important to be able to follow coverage even if you don’t have cable. Fortunately, there are Live TV Streaming Services that offer Free Trials, and Free Streaming Options so you can get the latest information available on Tropical Storm Fred and Tropical Storm Grace.
The good news is that all of these services work on your TV, as well as your phone — so if you lose internet connection, but still have cell service — you can still follow the storm coverage.
1. Stream The Weather Channel Live
AT&T TV offers The Weather Channel as part of its Choice, Ultimate, and Premier plans, but does not offer a free trial.
Alternatively, FrndlyTV also offers the channel for $5.99 a month.
Unfortunately, services like Hulu Live TV, Sling TV, and YouTube TV don’t offer The Weather Channel. However, most of them will stream your local channels which will likely be televising updates on Tropical Storm Elsa as it moves up the coast.
