Cutting the cord is a big step for anyone who’s become so accustomed to simply following the lead of the cable companies, but it is possible to watch Destination America without cable, for instance.
Destination America is a channel that has gone through numerous changes over the years, although it’s now settled on broadcasting lifestyle and paranormal shows like Wild Food, Mountain Monsters, or Paranormal Lockdown.
If this is a channel that you must have when you cut the cord with your cable provider, then you should know it’s present on the list of channels four Live TV platforms offer.

We’re going to start this list with Sling TV, which is one of the best platforms of this kind on the market, offering users a wide range of channel and loads of elbow room to customize the service. There are three bundles you can get to start off with – Orange ($25/mo), Blue ($25/mo), and Orange + Blue ($40/mo) – and quite a few interest-based channel packs, like News, Best of Spanish, or Kids. You may also add premium networks if you’d like. Destination America is a channel that you’ll find in the Heartland extra pack, which costs $5 per month.

Another great suggestion on our list is Philo, which is pretty simple OTT. In fact, Philo only has two bundles to pick from – 40 Channels ($16/mo), and 49 Channels ($20/mo). Destination America is only present in the latter bundle, so you’re going to have to pay $20 if you want to enjoy the channel’s shows.
