Esquire Network originally premiered as the Style Network until its relaunch in 2013. Today, the network is geared toward a male audience with shows on tech, travel, food and more. You could say it’s the guys’ counterpart to the Oxygen network. But, like many of the specialized pay TV networks, it is difficult to watch Esquire Network online without access to cable or satellite.So how can you do it and still cut the cord? Here are a few suggestions.
PlayStation Vue, a product of Sony, gives you the ability to transform your gaming console into a complete cable replacement tool. Their basic package offers Esquire Network streaming live so you can watch right when it airs and on your own devices. This means you can watch favorite shows like Going Deep with David Rees and Best Bars in America just like you did before. And, you’ll be able to watch a variety of other networks including:
Until recently, PlayStation Vue was only available in 7 U.S cities. Since it launched nationwide, there have been a few changes. Only the original cities have access to live local channels like NBC, ABC, FOX, and CBS. However, everyone receives next day, on-demand access to NBC, ABC, and FOX.
PlayStation Vue (review) has some great benefits and starts at only $29.99. But there are also some restrictions that users need to be aware of. The service is only available on PS3/PS4 consoles, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, and an iOS app. Vue is tied to your home network, so you won’t be able to watch much content on the go, even with the mobile app. However, the ability to watch Esquire Network online, and so much more, is well worth the price of admission with PlayStation Vue.
As of right now, there are no other services that offer the Esquire Network live stream. But, other offerings like Sling TV add new channels to their lineup all the time. We will update our information if we hear more.
Also, there are new streaming services scheduled to launch soon. These include the newcomer VIDGO, DirecTV Now, as well as Hulu’s own live TV service. These, or others, could elect to stream Esquire Network so fans can watch their favorite shows online.
If PlayStation Vue doesn’t work for you, you may consider the option to buy individual episodes online. Several streaming instant video services make this process simple, including Amazon, iTunes, and Vudu. Each episode will usually run about $2 to $3 a piece, or you can buy the complete season at a discounted rate. You can even buy the entire season before it airs and you’ll be alerted when new shows are available, typically the day after they run on Esquire Network.
A streaming service will generally be less expensive, but with the instant video option you do own the show for life.
