It’s the perfect way to wind down the evening with your mama and thank her for all she’s done for you! If you want to watch Dear Mama online, read on for your options.

Since the Dear Mama live stream is set to air on VH1, you may be thinking that you need to have cable TV in order to enjoy it. Thankfully, that’s simply not the case! Nowadays, there are a few ways you can enjoy Dear Mama streaming from home, without a cable TV package. These are your options:


Watch Dear Mama Online with PlayStation Vue

Best Choice
$44.99 - $79.99
47 - 72

PlayStation Vue will be your best bet for catching the Dear Mama live stream if you do not have cable. The special is set to air on VH1, and currently, PS Vue is the only streaming service that offers VH1 streaming in its lineup.

PlayStation Vue (review here) is a full-fledged cable alternative, providing subscribers with direct, live access to more than 50 top-quality cable TV channels – without the cable subscription! Even with the most basic Vue package, you’ll gain access to VH1, TNT, TBS, CNN, and a wide range of other great channels. All that, and packages start at only $30 a month!

Better yet, PlayStation Vue is no-contract. You can sign up for a month, try it out, and if you don’t like it you’re free to cancel. In fact, you can actually watch Dear Mama online free using PlayStation Vue’s FREE 7-day trial.

Right now, the only real downside to Vue is that it’s only available on a few devices. For now, you can only use Vue on PS3/PS4 devices, Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, and iPads. Other than the relatively limited device options, this is a great service at a great price – and the only way to enjoy a true Dear Mama live stream.


Enjoy Dear Mama Streaming On-Demand with Amazon Instant Video

If you miss the live stream, the next best option is to catch a replay on-demand. Amazon Instant Video will allow you to purchase the full recording of Dear Mama for just a few dollars. Once you’ve purchased it, you can stream it on a ton of different devices, and you’ll own the recording for life (it will be stored in your Amazon account). You won’t be able to watch Dear Mama online live using Amazon Instant Video, but it’s the best way to catch the special after it airs for a reasonable cost.
