Telemundo website and Telemundo app

Two other ways to watch Telemundo programming is through the Telemundo app and Telemundo website. 

You can use your subscription to YouTube TV, DIRECTV STREAM, fuboTV, and Hulu Live TV to activate the Telemundo app or Telemundo website. 

While testing out this option on a PC and the Telemundo app, I found that you don’t always get a live stream from a local Telemundo station. So these two options are better for watching on-demand TV shows.

Watch Telemundo Live for free with a TV Antenna

You can watch Telemundo for free without any kind of streaming service.

Using a TV antenna is the least expensive way to get a High Definition signal from local Telemundo, ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC and PBS stations for free. UniMás, TeleXitos and Univision are free broadcast channels that are available with a TV antenna in many U.S. markets.

People living within 30 to 40 miles of local broadcast towers have an excellent shot at getting local broadcast channels with a quality TV antenna. 

You can use the free tool at AntennasDirect to see whether Telemundo is available in your area. Local channels broadcast digital signals in 1080i or 720p resolution, which is High Definition.

If you are new to TV antennas, here is a list of resources that I have written to get you started.
