American Housewife
via ABC

We love sitcoms and like to watch them every now and then. American Housewife is one of the good ones that try to showcase how flawed every family is and how no one really is perfect. If you want to watch American Housewife too, we’re here to help you out.

American Housewife first aired back in 2016 and is now on its third season, which premiered back in September 2018. The show will reach its season finale in early May, so a few more episodes are left of this show.

If you want to watch American Housewife, tune in on Tuesdays at 8/7c on ABC. We’re sure you’ll find something to laugh about. Let’s learn all there is to learn about watching this show online.

Can You Watch American Housewife for Free on ABC’s Website?

Well, yes you can stream ABC live on its website, but it’s not free. You can use the live stream on the site, but you’ll need to set up an account. In there, you’ll need to use credentials from your cable provider or live TV platform, in order to prove you pay for TV somewhere, including ABC. Since you’re interested in watching the show online, we suggest looking into live TV platforms.

What Live TV Services Feature ABC?

We use the Internet to read the news, to chat with friends, to order food, to look for recipes, to play games, to binge on our favorite shows, and so on. Why not also watch TV online, right? Live TV platforms are aplenty and they’re all cheaper than cable is, which means you’ll be saving money. They are also quite easy to customize, some more than others, and you can cancel your subscription at any time since there are no contracts to tie you down. Plus, the best of the best is that you can start watching your favorite episodes no matter where you are when they start airing; as long as you have a compatible device such as a smartphone and an Internet connection, you’re good to go.

Hulu – Topping our list, we have Hulu, which is a great service that’s been around for a while. The live TV plan they offer costs $44.99 per month and comes with dozens of channels, including ABC, as well as access to the video on demand library. In case you want to customize the service in any way, there are several premium networks you can add, as well as a couple of channel packs. Our Hulu review comes with all the details you need.

YouTube TV – Next, we have YouTube TV, which is another service that features a single bundle of channels. This one too comes with ABC among the many other channels they offer in the $45 per month plan, alongside fresh channels like Discovery. There aren’t that many customization options on YouTube TV, but you can add some premium networks, which is still something. Read TechNadu’s YouTube TV review for more details.

DirecTV Now – Another platform you can try out is DirecTV Now. This one has a total of seven plans. Two of them are new, namely Plus ($50/mo) and Max ($70/mo), while the other five – Entertainment, Choice, Xtra, Ultimate, and Optimo Mas – used to have a different name and a price that’ was a lot lower. Either way, all seven bundles feature ABC, so you can pick the one you like best. There are a few premium networks you can add to customize the plans, as well as two Spanish-language channel packs and three international bundles. Our DirecTV Now review offers a lot more info you may want to have before subscribing.

PlayStation Vue – The list concludes with PlayStation Vue, which is a great platform we particularly enjoy. There are four bundles to pick from here – Access, Core, Elite, and Ultra – and they all feature ABC, which makes choosing easier since you’re not limited to only one or two. You can customize the service by adding premium networks and a couple of channel packs. Read up on our PlayStation Vue review to find out all about the perks the platform offers subscribers.

What Can You Do If ABC Isn’t Available in Your Area?

ABC is one of the channels that you can watch over the air, along with several others like Fox, NBC, or CBS. This means, however, that people living in numerous areas of the US can’t enjoy the channel. Live TV platforms have the same issues since they deliver local channels based on people’s IP addresses too because those give out their location. This, however, is great news because it means if you simply change your IP address, you can watch the channels destined for that specific location, including ABC. Here’s what you need to do.

  • The first step you must take is to pick a VPN. We’ve reviewed dozens of these over the years and can recommend ExpressVPN. So go ahead and pay the ExpressVPN website a visit, subscribe to the service, download and install the app.
  • Once that’s done, you need to launch the VPN and sign into your account. Then, you can pick a server that’s located in a big metropolitan area and connect to it, like New York City or Chicago.
  • The whole process only takes a few minutes, but once it’s done, you can log into the live TV platform of your choice. You should now be able to see the local channels available in the area of your chosen server.
  • Enjoy watching American Housewife!
Note: We can’t move on without mentioning another way you can use the steps we just mentioned above. Licensing deals prevent companies like those managing the platforms we just discussed to allow just anyone to watch their content. Well, it’s not about “who” watches per se, but from “where” they watch. If you’re outside of the US you can’t access any of the services we discussed. This is quite unfortunate, especially for those who often travel abroad and find themselves unable to watch their favorite shows. But, following the above-mentioned steps will help you easily circumvent the blockade entirely.

Can You Watch American Housewife With a TV Antenna?

Yes, you can. There are a few channels across the US that broadcast over the air and ABC is one of those. TV antennas have been the go-to solution for many people who have cut the cord over the years, way before live TV platforms that work online where available. The best part about this is that you can watch TV for free. The worst part is that you only get to watch a dozen or two channels, depending on where you live.

Before you make a decision, we recommend you visit a site like NoCable. There, you’ll find out what channels are available in that specific area and how strong their broadcast signal is. If you’re ok with what you see, this info will tell you what range to look for in a TV antenna. We’ve already made a suggestion of antenna for you, but you can search for your own, of course.

How Can You Watch Previous American Housewife Seasons?

American Housewife is on its third season, so you have a few episodes to watch if you want to catch up or if you really enjoy certain past episodes and want to re-watch them. You can check out the latest season’s episodes over on ABC, or you can binge watch on Hulu if you have an account.

If you’d rather own the show’s episodes and seasons, you can also make the purchase from various platforms such as Amazon Prime, Google Play, YouTube, iTunes, Microsoft Store, or Vudu. You should check them all out yourself because they may have certain deals available, depending on when you want to make the purchase.
