By Gabriela Vatu / June 18, 2019

Card Sharks is back on the screens and it's on ABC this time! If you want to watch the show that's been making history since the 70s, we have you covered.

Watching Card Sharks online is such an easy thing to do nowadays, especially since it's on ABC. In fact, this is the first time in a long time that the show has been broadcasted, which makes things even more interesting.

The first time Card Sharks aired was back in 1978, when it ran on NBC until 1981. Then, in 1986 it started up on CBC where it remained until 1989. From 2001 until 2002, it aired as a syndicated production. Nowadays, the new season kicked on on ABC on June 12th, 2019, with Joel McHale as host, who's a comedian and actor who starred in Community, Spy Kids, and Ted, to name a few. Let's see how you can watch Card Sharks online.

How to Watch Card Sharks Online?

It's really great that we can all watch so much content online these days, but one thing you should know - the freedom you get is somewhat limited, in the sense that you can't watch if you go abroad. Licensing deals prevent these platforms from allowing streams to happen outside of the United States, which is pretty common, albeit annoying. You're going to need to change your IP address if you want to overcome this issue, so we suggest you subscribe to a VPN service. Here's what you need to do.

Note: Since this is a show that's aired by ABC, we have to point out that the channel is only available in select markets, which means there's a chance that the live TV platform you choose won't give you access to ABC. If that's the case for you, don't despair - you can use the VPN to simply change the city you appear to be in - switch to New York City, for instance. Then, the live TV platform should give you access to the channels that are assigned to that specific area, including ABC.

Can You Watch Card Sharks on ABC's Website?

Sure you can. ABC's website comes with a live stream that you can access quite easily. The only thing you need to know is that you need to log into an account with your TV provider credentials. The credentials can come from a regular TV cable company or a live TV platform, but we do suggest you go for the latter since you want to watch shows online anyway.

How to Watch Card Sharks Without Cable?

In this day and age, we already use the internet for pretty much anything and everything, which is pretty awesome. While we do enjoy watching TV shows and movies and listening to music online, it makes perfect sense to also watch TV online. There are so many live TV platforms that have been launched in recent years and that's great because it means you have loads of options. These services are far cheaper than cable is and you can cancel at any time and switch to another because there are no contracts to keep you down. Plus, you get to watch TV wherever you go, wherever you may be when the show starts, whether that's at work or the bus. Let's see what options you have.

Hulu - Topping the list, we have Hulu, which is a great service that only comes with one bundle of channels. There are dozens of networks in there, including ABC, which is great news if you want to watch Card Sharks. If you want to customize your plan, you can top your $44.99 per month bundle with a couple of channel packs and several premium networks.

YouTube TV - Next, there's YouTube TV, which is another one-bundle platform. For $49.99 per month, the service delivers dozens of channels, including ABC. While there are no channel packs you can add, you can add in a few premium networks, which we're sure you'll love. The service offers subscribers some great features, including unlimited Cloud DVR storage space.

DirecTV Now - We also have DirecTV Now on the list. There are seven bundles here, nowadays, two of which were added earlier this years, namely Plus and Max. Then, the other five bundles got renamed into Entertainment, Choice, Xtra, Ultimate, and Optimo Mas and were given a new price that's much higher than the old one. ABC is part of all seven bundles, so you can simply choose the one you like best, whether for the right channel combo or the right price for your monthly budget. You can also add a bunch of packs if you want more content, such as two featuring Spanish channels, three with international networks, and a bunch of premium networks.

PlayStation Vue - Finally, we have PlayStation Vue, which is a great service that comes with excellent features for subscribers like enough Cloud DVR storage space for 500 programs, and five simultaneous streams. There are four bundles you can choose from here - Access, Core, Elite, and Ultra - and they all feature ABC. You can still add a few things to these bundles, namely a couple of channel packs and several premium networks, including HBO and Showtime.

Can You Watch Card Sharks with a TV Antenna?

Yes! ABC is one of the channels that still broadcast over the air, which is great because TV antennas are great. These devices have been favorites of cord cutters for years because they're relatively cheap to buy and they allow users to watch TV for free afterward, which is great. The only downside we can think of is that you can only watch a dozen or two channels, which is a big difference from what cable has to offer.

Before you go forward and choose an antenna, we do suggest you check with a site like NoCable to see what channels broadcast over the air in your location and how strong their broadcast signal is. This should help you figure out whether a TV antenna is a good option for you, as well as what range you need to look for in a device. We've already given you a suggestion in terms of devices, but you can do your own research, of course.

Can You Binge-Watch Card Sharks?

Sure you can. Over on ABC, you can find the Card Sharks episodes that have already aired and you can enjoy it shortly after they go live. You can also watch the show over on Hulu if you have a subscription. If you wanted to create an account, now's the time.

There's also the option to watch some of the older seasons over on Amazon Prime, or purchasing them from platforms like Google Play. We're pretty sure you're going to love them quite a bit. Plus, the new show will likely end up available for purchase too on platforms like YouTube, Vudu, iTunes, or Microsoft Store.
