Is Cue Streaming Available Globally? (Outside USA)

Cue Streaming are a great value newcomer streaming service that’s growing in popularity and reputation. But as more and more people hear about the service, one very common question that’s being asked is whether it’s available globally. The promotion and content selection seems to be US focused, so is Cue Streaming actually available to customers outside the United States?

Cue Streaming is currently only available in the USA, with a primarily USA based channel and content selection. However coverage is expected to expand to more countries in the future.

In other words, right now, Cue Streaming is not a global service, but watch this space! They are set to offer local channels and content in more countries in the not too distant future.

What Channels/Content Is Currently Available On Cue Streaming?

For now at least, Cue Streaming remains a service focused on the USA streaming/on demand content market, but with a definite eye on expanding to more countries soon.

They say as much on their website:

This means that right now, it’s best to sign up for the service only if you’re based in the USA, and want to receive primarily American TV/streaming content. But keep an eye out for global availability coming at some point soon.

Their current channel selection is impressive and runs to around 4000 US based channels, plus a large catalogue of on demand content.

Here’s a list of the main channel and content categories currently available (again mostly US based at least right now):

  • Entertainment channels
  • Movies channels like Cinemax and Hallmark.
  • TV series on demand
  • All major sports channels like ESPN, Fox Sports, NBC Sports, Golf Channel, beIN sports and more.
  • Kids channels
  • Documentary channels like Discovery, History Channel, Nat Geo and more
  • Music channels like MTV and more.
  • All the Disney channels.
  • Comedy channels like Comedy Central
  • HBO
  • USA Network and other major networks.
  • PPV channels (at no extra cost in many cases)
  • All major US news channels
  • Local US news channels.

Regarding catch up TV/boxsets/films, plus other content on demand, again it’s an impressive library that’s mostly US based for now.

See here where you can check out (and search through) their entire content catalogue to see what’s on there (you don’t need to create an account or sign in to do this).

Will Coverage Expand To More Countries?

It’s clear from Cue Streaming’s own documentation and stated goals that they plan to expand into more countries as soon as possible. Therefore it’s safe to assume that Cue Streaming will become available in more countries at some point in the relatively near future (probably sometime in 2024).

This means that you should in time be able to set up Cue Streaming accounts in other countries globally, and access and local content catalogue similar to what you’d be able to access on a standard TV/cable/satellite/on demand service in that country.

It’s not been stated clearly why Cue Streaming haven’t yet expanded to more countries yet, but here are a couple of reasonably suggestions as to why:

  1. Teething problems – Getting set up even in the US alone has been a bit tricky for them, with some technical issues that they’ve been working hard to resolve. They’ll probably try and get this fully sorted and stable in the US first, before expanding to other countries.
  2. Right issues – It’s probably a massive logistical operation to secure rights to content in one country like the US, never mind other countries globally. It’ll take some time securing content rights in every country they want to set up in.

How Cue Streaming Works

Let’s give a simple overview summary of what Cue Streaming is and how it works. It’s basically a TV and on demand content streaming service like any other, expect it’s got a couple of huge advantages over rival cable/TV/streaming providers in the US:

  1. It’s massively cheaper than most other packages, at just $59.99/month for 5 devices.
  2. It’s got a massive channel and content catalogue that might not match absolutely every cable provider, but will get pretty close (check here).
  3. There’s no setup or equipment fees, which keeps costs down. No expensive routers/hubs/boxes that need sending, no engineer coming round to set it all up, no installation/activation fees. You just need a decent internet connection from your current ISP, and setup is done by the user and is easy for most devices. (the only extra equipment needed is a Firestick for each TV used – setup guides coming soon on this site).
  4. No contract or other things locking you in. Pay monthly and cancel any time you like. No exit fees, minimum terms or other nonsense you get with some providers.
  5. Watch on all major devices except games consoles (PC/laptop/phone/tablet etc. Also on TV but Firestick needed).

And that’s really it. They’re meant to be pretty much a one stop shop for most or all of the content you need, but they’re massively undercutting a lot of the competition on the pricing. It’s designed to replace traditional cable providers, and also largely replace a lot of streaming services (but there’s nothing stopping you also having Netflix, Amazon Video and other subscriptions alongside this one if you want).

The on demand film/TV content library is decent – perhaps not all of what you’d want right now, but a good chunk of it. But it’s the US channel selection that’s the most impressive thing – it’s got pretty much everything you’ll be used to watching right now in the US with your current provider.

Getting Started With Cue Streaming

If you’re based in the United States and want to get started with Cue Streaming, it’s pretty straightforward:

  • Make sure you have an Internet service and a Firestick for each TV you want to use with the service.
  • Go to the Cue Streaming website.
  • Click on Subscribe and enter your information
  • Pay the subscription ($59.99 per month, 5 devices per account, no contract, no setup fees, cancel at any time).
  • Perform a simple initial setup depending on the device (TV setup is a bit more in-depth, but not that difficult).
  • You’re ready, with the ability to watch most or all of the channels you currently watch.

Once the service becomes available in more countries, it’s expected to work in much the same way, except you’ll likely pay in local currency equivalent and have access to a local channel/content catalogue depending on where you’re based.
