It’s not only adults that can cook, but also children who are born with a passion and in families that allow them to experiment and grow their passions. Chopped Junior is a great show and a new season is about to start on Food Network, and if you want to watch it online, we’ll guide you through it.
Chopped Junior first aired back in 2015 and was a real success. Proof to this is the fact that its eighth season is about to start on June 25th, 2019. The contestants are quite young, with the show’s requirements mentioning the 9 to 15 bracket. They get challenged to take on a basket of mystery ingredients and turn them into a dish that gets critiqued by a panel of judges and given scores based on presentation, taste, and creativity. The winner gets $10,000 and the Chopped Junior chef’s coat.
All previous seasons had 13 episodes, so it’s expected that this one will also last just as long. That being said, let’s see how we can watch Chopped Junior over the Internet.
How to Watch Chopped Junior Online?
It’s pretty awesome that nowadays we get to watch so much content online and do so many things online. What you need to keep in mind, however, is that the freedom is not complete – while you do get to watch your favorites at work and at home, you can’t watch if you go abroad. That’s because live TV platforms, streaming services, and TV network live streams are all geoblocked. This means that once you cross the border, you no longer get to enjoy the services you pay for. This happens due to licensing deals and it’s quite annoying but perfectly normal. These sites know where you are by looking at your IP address, which is good news because we can easily change those. Therefore, you should look into subscribing to a VPN service. Let’s see what you need to do.
- First, you have to figure out which one’s the right VPN for you. We’ve reviewed quite a few of these tools over the years but we seem to always turn to ExpressVPN when we’re in need – it has thousands of servers and some great privacy and security features. Go ahead and visit ExpressVPN’s website and subscribe to the service by following the steps the site presents you with.
- Download the app that’s right for your device and install it. When that’s done, you can launch the app and log into your account.
- Now it’s time to look for a US-based server – there are plenty of those – and connect to it.
- When the connection is established, you can load the live TV service you chose to watch Chopped Junior on, such as Philo. Tune in to the Food Network and watch the show!
Can You Watch Chopped Junior on the Food Network’s Website?
Yes, that’s actually possible because the Food Network features a live stream you can access. In order to access it, however, you need to sign up for an account by using your TV provider account. Those can come from a regular cable company or a live TV service. Either way, you need to prove that you pay to watch the Food Network. Since you want to watch this show online, however, we do suggest you go ahead straight for the live TV service.
How to Watch Chopped Junior Without Cable?
In recent years, multiple live TV services have risen to fame, offering people the chance to watch TV online much easier and for a lot cheaper. Plus, these platforms have no contracts to tie you down, so you can quit your subscription whenever you feel like it, which is great news. Another great thing about these is that you can watch your shows wherever you are when they start, even if that’s on the bus while you’re heading home – all you need is a compatible device and an Internet connection. Let’s see what options lay ahead of you.
fuboTV – At the top of the list we have fuboTV, which is a platform that comes with a ton of sports channels. On top of those, however, they’ve made quite a bit of an effort to add plenty of entertainment channels too. The Food Network is one of those channels that you can watch whenever you want, especially to enjoy Chopped Junior. If you still want more channels, you can add any of the packs they have to offer, as well as plenty of premium networks.
Sling TV – We have Sling TV next, which is a platform that’s highly versatile thanks to the many packs that allow you to customize your service. There are three bundles you can start with – Orange, Blue, and Orange + Blue. You can literally choose any of these because the Food Network is present in all of them. We do suggest you go for the Orange + Blue one because the bundle you pick influences the number of simultaneous streams you get and that one gets the most. You can also add loads of channel packs, as well as plenty of premium networks.
Philo – Our next suggestion is Philo, which is a great single-bundle platform. The bundle is named 58 Channels (because that’s how many networks it has) and costs only $20 per month. Among those, there’s also the Food Network, so you can watch Chopped Junior. There are no channel packs to add here, or premium networks, or even add-ons.
Hulu – Hulu is also a service that only has one bundle of channels, but it’s $44.99 per month. The subscription price covers dozens of channels, including Food Network, as well as access to the full Video-on-Demand library Hulu has. If you want to add more content, Hulu features two channel packs and several premium networks.
YouTube TV – We also have YouTube TV on the list, which also has a single bundle to go with, this time for $49.99 per month. The price covers dozens of channels, Food Network included, as well as some pretty awesome features for subscribers, such as unlimited Cloud DVR storage space. If you want more content, you won’t get it via channel packs here, but rather via premium networks.
DirecTV Now – Going from a single bundle to seven, we have DirecTV Now next. This one comes with seven bundles to choose between. Two of them were added this year -Plus and Max – while the other five – Entertainment, Choice, Xtra, Ultimate, and Optimo Mas – were simply renamed and given a price that’s twice than what it used to be. You’ll find the Food Network in the older bundles only – Entertainment, Choice, Xtra, Ultimate, and Optimo Mas -, which means that your subscription will run quite high (between $86 and $135/mo). The service allows users to add a couple of packs featuring Spanish channels, three international packs, and plenty of premium networks.
PlayStation Vue – Last on the list, we have PlayStation Vue, which is one of our favorites thanks to the features subscribers get here – enough Cloud DVR storage space for 500 programs and five simultaneous streams. There are four bundles you can get here – Access, Core, Elite, and Ultra – and the Food Network is part of all of them, which means you can choose the one that has the right channel combo for you or the right price for your budget. You can add a couple of channel packs if you want more content, as well as several premium networks. If you’re also a PlayStation Plus subscriber, you’ll get better prices for some of these.
How to Binge Watch Chopped Junior?
We get it! These kids are all adorable! If you want to go back and watch some of the older seasons, you can do that quite easily. Over on the Food Network website, you can find all seasons that have aired so far, and once the new one starts broadcast, those will get added in too. You can watch a few of the episodes for free, but you’ll need to sign into an account for the rest. Again, you’ll need credentials from your cable provider to do this. If you want to stream the show, you can also go over to Hulu and watch all the seasons with as little as $5.99 per month.
If you’d rather own the episodes or the full seasons of Chopped Junior, you can also purchase them from various platforms, including YouTube, Google Play, iTunes, Microsoft Store, Amazon Prime, and Vudu.
