How to Watch ‘Apollo’s Moon Shot’ Online: Live Stream the Miniseries

By Gabriela Vatu / June 17, 2019

We laugh, we cry, but we also learn a lot of cool stuff when we watch TV, especially if we watch the right channels, which is the case with Smithsonian Channel. In the coming days, a new factual series will hit the screens - Apollo's Moon Shot - and if you want to watch the docuseries live online, we can help you out.

Apollo's Moon Shot is produced by the Smithsonian Channel and it's a six-hour series that focuses on America's efforts to put a man on the moon, culminating with the actual moon landing in 1969. The new series will premiere on June 16th and the new episode will air at 8 PM ET.

Here's the schedule for the series, so you know when you tune in to the show.

How to Watch Apollo's Moon Shot Online?

Well, there are many ways that we can watch the show online these days, whether we're talking about Smithsonian Channel's own website live stream or a live TV streaming platform, but they all have one thing in common - they're geoblocked. This means that if you have to travel abroad in the next few weeks, you won't be able to access either of these. In order to fool the system, you need to change your IP so it appears that you are within the United States. In order to do this, we suggest you look into subscribing to a VPN service. Here's what you need to do.

Can You Watch Apollo's Moon Shot on Smithsonian Channel's Website?

Yes. The Smithsonian Channel website does come with a live stream, but you can only access it by logging into an account. In order to set up this account, you have to associate your TV provider credentials, whether a cable company or a live TV platform. Either way, you have to prove you're paying to watch the channel.

How to Watch Apollo's Moon Shot Without Cable?

If you're going to watch the miniseries without cable, you're going to need to subscribe to a live TV platform, which makes perfect sense since we already do everything else online. Plus, these live TV platforms are cheaper than cable is, which is one big reason that makes cord-cutting make perfect sense. Then, you can cancel your subscription anytime you no longer like the service since there's no contract involved to tie you down. Plus, you can watch your favorite shows wherever you may be, as long as you have the right device and an Internet connection. Let's see what options we have.

fuboTV - Topping the list, we have fuboTV, which is a great service that features loads of sports channels. After adding more entertainment platforms in recent months, fuboTV now appeals to a wider audience. The single-bundle platform features Smithsonian Channel so it's easy to find. If you want more content, you can add loads of channel packs, as well as plenty of premium networks.

Hulu - We also have Hulu on the list, which is another service that only comes with one bundle of channels. For $44.99 per month, subscribers get access to dozens of channels, including Smithsonian Channel, as well as the video on demand library that Hulu is famous for. There are even a couple of channel packs you can add here, as well as a bunch of premium networks we're sure you'll love.

YouTube TV - Next, we have YouTube TV which is another awesome platform, especially given the featured offered to subscribers, such as the unlimited Cloud DVR storage space. There's a single bundle of channels to get here and it does feature Smithsonian Channel, which is great. There are no channel packs to add here, but you can get a bunch of premium networks if you really want to add more things to your plan.

PlayStation Vue - Finally, our list ends with PlayStation Vue, which is a great service with some awesome features including enough Cloud DVR storage space for 500 programs and five simultaneous streams. You can pick one of four bundles here - Access, Core, Elite, and Ultra - although you need to keep in mind that the Smithsonian Channel is only available in three - Core, Elite, and Ultra. If you want more content, PlayStation Vue offers a couple of channel packs and a few premium networks to choose between.

How to Stream Apollo's Moon Shot Episodes?

Once they've aired, the Apollo's Moon Shot episodes will become available to watch on Smithsonian Channel's website. You'll be able to re-watch all episodes once they've aired, which is pretty great. You can sign into an account with your TV provider details.
