Cable subscriptions come at exorbitant prices. Depending on your package, it isn’t unheard of to be looking at subscription prices of $200 per month or more. That’s over $2000 a year for only a few channels that you watch on occasion! This is why so many people are headed towards cord-cutting, which allows people to watch their favorite channels and TV shows for less!
Maybe you’re a big fan of, say, 60 Minutes. If you follow along with us below, we’ll show you what services this channel is available on so that you can cut that cable subscription without any worries. Let’s get started, shall we?
Amazon and Roku
The best way that you can watch 60 Minutes is by using streaming hardware. 60 Minutes is available on the CBS app, which can be downloaded on a variety of devices, including the Fire TV and the Roku Ultra. You’ll need to download the app onto either device and sign-up for the $5.99 per month subscription (which you can cancel at anytime), and then you’ll be able to watch 60 Minutes whenever you want.
Unfortunately, these streaming devices don’t have any “free” ways that you can watch 60 Minutes. You have to be signed up with CBS’ own subscription to watch it through the app.
Hulu with Live TV
Hulu is actually a great place to watch 60 Minutes. They have something called Hulu with Live TV Now, which gives you a variety of channels that allows you to watch live content. CBS is one of those channels. Hulu with Live TV is one of our favorite choices because its availability is so versatile — you can watch on your smartphone, tablet, and even at home on your Smart TV, on a streaming device, on your computer and more.
Hulu with Live TV is one of the pricier options out there, coming in at $39.99 per month. They add a lot of value by including their regular Hulu VOD content with it, giving you access to Hulu’s wide array of video on-demand content.

Next up, we have YouTube TV — this is another new one that will allow you to watch 60 Minutes. They have a contract with CBS for live TV, so this is another place you’ll be able to watch 60 minutes live without cab.e. YouTube TV is able to be downloaded on a variety of devices, allowing you to watch 60 minutes live from almost anywhere. This one will set you back $34.99 per month, but YouTube TV also offers a free trial as a try before you buy.
Just do keep in mind that, since YouTube TV is still new, they’re still working out the kinks — unfortunately, they experience frequent outages, at least that’s what current reviews say. You can still see what they’re all about with the free trial at the link below before you fully commit.

Last up, you can watch 60 Minutes on PlayStation Vue. The “con” here is that, unfortunately, you won’t be able to watch it live. CBS and other networks pulled some of their live content off of Vue when Vue launched in the US. However, you’ll still be able to catch 60 Minutes on Vue 24-hours after the episode airs, giving you the ability to at least catch all of the in-season content without waiting a year for it to appear on your streaming service of choice.
PlayStation Vue subscriptions start at $39.99 for the base “Access” package. Similar to the other options, you do get a free trial (even for its highest tier) to see what it’s all about. Unlike popular belief, you don’t have to have a PlayStation to watch Vue — you can watch on your smartphone, tablet, Smart TV or other streaming hardware simply by downloading the PlayStation Vue app and logging in with your account details.

As you can see, there are plenty of ways that you can watch 60 Minutes live online. You have so many options as far as streaming hardware goes, as well as the different apps and services available.
If you’re looking for the most economical option — as you are trying to save cash by cutting the cable subscription out — picking up a Fire TV or Roku Ultra and signing up for CBS All Access is your best option.
