If you're into romantic musical comedy-drama TV series, then we're sure that Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has long since been on your radar. As the finale approaches, we're going to tell you how to watch the show live online.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is a cute show that premiered back in October 2015. Nowadays, the series is heading towards its end, as this is the fourth and final season that started off back in October 2018.

The show focuses on the bumpy relationship between Rebecca Bunch and Josh Chan, an old boyfriend of hers. The whole show starts off when Rebecca doesn't know what to do with her life after being offered a partnership with the law firm she works for and suddenly bumps into Josh, who's moving back to California. As soon as the moves back home to follow him, things start getting exciting, with numerous comedic episodes.

As mentioned, the fourth season is the last and the final episode is scheduled to air on April 5, so you've got a bit more time to get this whole thing sorted out. New episodes air on Fridays, at 9/8c on The CW. Let's dive right in and find out how you can watch Crazy Ex-Girlfriend live online.

Can You Watch Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Live On The CW Website?

We have some good news and some bad news for you. The bad news is that you can't watch the show live on The CW's website because they simply don't feature a live stream in there. You can, however, watch the latest five episodes straight on the site, without even needing to log in. If you want to watch more, you'll need to get creative about it, but we'll discuss your options more. What it boils down to is that if you want to watch The CW live online, you're going to need to find a live TV platform that features the channel. So, let's go ahead and find out which are those platforms.

What Live TV Services Can You Subscribe to Watch Crazy Ex-Girlfriend On?

For many years now, people have become tired with all the issues that come with the traditional cable. With us using the Internet for pretty much anything these days, and enjoying the freedom this gives us, it makes sense to want to also watch TV in the same manner. When compared to cable, live TV platforms are a lot cheaper, they can be customized, and they can be canceled by pressing about two buttons, without having to wait for a specific contracted time period. Plus, as long as you have an Internet connection and a compatible device at your disposal, you can watch your favorite shows wherever you may be, even if you haven't made it home in time. That being said, let's find out what options you have to watch The CW without a cable subscription.

fuboTV - First on our list, we have fuboTV. This one started out as a sports-centric platform but has evolved into a service that your whole family can love. There are two bundles to choose from here - fubo and fubo Extra - and The CW is present in both of them In case you want to customize the service in any way, you can always add channel packs or premium networks. Make sure to read our fuboTV review to better understand the service.

Note: We need to point out here that The CW is only present in select markets over fuboTV, namely Atlanta, GA, Detroit, MI, Philadelphia, PA, Pittsburgh, PA, Sacramento-Stockton-Modesto, CA, San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose, CA, Seattle, WA, Tampa, FL, and Chicago, IL. So, if you live elsewhere and you want to access the channel, you'll need to get creative by using a VPN. Keep on reading and you'll find out exactly what you need to do.

Hulu - Another great option on our list is Hulu, which is a service that only features one bundle of channels. Priced at $44.99 per month, the subscription includes access to dozens of channels, including The CW, as well as the full VOD library. You can customize the service by adding a couple of packs, as well as one of the four premium networks they offer. Check out TechNadu's detailed Hulu review if you want more info on what they have to offer.

YouTube TV - Next on our list, we have YouTube TV, which, like Hulu, is also a single-bundle platform. Despite several of its competitors hiking up the prices, this service continues to cost $40 per month, with the subscription including access to dozens of channels, including The CW so you can watch Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. Simplicity is one of the keywords when describing YouTube TV, so you should know that if you want to customize the service, you can only add premium networks because no additional packs are available. Read our YouTube TV review to find out all about the really cool perks subscribers can enjoy here.

DirecTV Now - Following up on our list, we have DirecTV Now. Recently, the service underwent several changes, including going from five to two bundles. Nowadays, you can pick between Plus, which costs $50 per month, and Max, which costs $70 per month. The price hike is explained by the integration of HBO in both bundles and Cinemax in the Max Bundle. Sadly, the number of channels in these bundles has gone down considerably, although The CW remains. If you want to customize the service, DirecTV Now offers a couple of Spanish-language channel packs, as well as several premium networks and International bundles. Read our DirecTV Now review to find out about the perks too.

Sling TV - We are also going to include Sling TV on the list here. While the platform doesn't really feature The CW in the bundles or additional packs, you can still get access to the channel if you really want to pick this service. This can be done by subscribing and paying for two months in advance, which is their requirement to send you a TV antenna. You can then use the antenna to enjoy watching The CW over the air. Read TechNadu's Sling TV review for more details.

What Can You Do if The CW Isn't Available for Your Location?

The CW, like several other American channels, is only available in certain areas. While fuboTV makes it clear which areas the channel can be accessed in, other platforms have similar issues. This is a nasty situation for everyone involved, but the good news is that there's something you can do about it all. You see, live TV platforms are just websites so they know your location by reading your IP address. If you were to, let's say, have a different IP that matches a different location where The CW is available in, you'd get to watch the shows you love. Lucky for you, a VPN can easily change your IP address. Here's what you need to do.

Note: You may or may not already know this, but live TV platforms, like any other streaming service across the US, are geoblocked. This means that you can only access them all if you're within the United States. In the event of you traveling abroad, you'll find yourself unable to access the content at all. If you'll use a VPN, however, you can bypass the blockade entirely and you'll get to enjoy the service you're paying for.

Is It Possible to Use a Digital Antenna to Watch Crazy Ex-Girlfriend?

Sure, you can! TV antennas were previously mentioned when discussing Sling TV, but we need to dive deeper into this because you can get one of these antennas from pretty much anywhere. Nowadays, they look sleek enough to blend in with the rest of your gadgets, and they're good enough to pick up a signal from 50-70 miles away. The great part about using one of these is that you only have to pay for the antenna itself because you'll then be able to watch TV for free, which is a dream come true.

Of course, the downside of it all is that there's only about a dozen or two of TV channels that you can watch over the air, so it will be a big jump from what you were used to on cable or a live TV platform. Either way, it's free, so you don't really get to complain. Now, before moving forward and buying an antenna for your household, you need to make sure that the investment is worthwhile. So, go to a site like TV Fool, input your address, and check out what channels broadcast in your area and whether or not the signal is strong enough for you to pick up on it properly. If it all checks out and you like what you see, you should go ahead and buy yourself an antenna and try this out.

Can You Binge on Older Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Episodes?

Absolutely. We're going to mention visiting The CW site again because they offer the latest five episodes for free in there. You can also check out the first three seasons over on Netflix, with the fourth to be added shortly after the final episode airs.

If you'd rather go ahead and buy the episodes and seasons so you can watch at your discretion, you can always make the purchase off your favorite platform. The prices are similar, so you're going to have to check for periodical offers you may be able to get. So, go visit Amazon Prime, Google Play, YouTube, iTunes, Vudu, or Microsoft Store.
