It's nice going out and eating at big restaurants, but it's also absolutely awesome to visit family-owned restaurants. It is this particular beauty that the Food Network is trying to capture in its most recent competition called Family Restaurants Rivals. If you want to watch the new show, we will help you do that over the Internet.

The show will bring together families over a two-round competition every week, and the purpose is simple - figuring out whose dishes are the best. The end goal is winning the $10,000 prize. The show will be hosted by Valerie Bertinelli, and it will also feature judges like Robert Irvine and Christian Petroni. The new show will premiere on August 19th and will take up the 10 p.m. time slot.

If you want to enjoy this new show over the Internet so you can watch it wherever you may be when it starts broadcasting, then we can help you out with a few suggestions. Let's find out more about this whole thing.

How to Watch Family Restaurant Rivals Online?

Since we all watch loads of content online these days, there is something you should know, namely the fact that some content cannot be viewed while traveling abroad because there are licensing deals in place that prevent this from happening. This situation isn't that's drastic because there are things that you can do to bypass the geographical blockade, such as changing your IP address. A tool that will help you do this quite easily is a VPN, so we suggest you subscribe to such a service.

Can You Watch Family Restaurant Rivals on the Food Network's Website?

The Food Network features a live stream on its website, which means that you can technically watch the show directly there. You will need, however, to log into an account with credentials from your TV provider. This provider can either be live TV service or a traditional cable company.

How to Watch Family Restaurant Rivals Without Cable?

In recent years there has been a rise in live TV services to cover people's need for transitioning from traditional cable to being able to watch TV wherever they may be. Live TV platforms are cheaper than cable plans so you can put some money aside each month. Furthermore, there are actually no contracts involved with live TV platforms so you can unsubscribe whenever you feel like it, and the platform no longer offers you a service that you're happy with. There is also the fact that you can watch your shows when they start airing even if you're not home. All you need is as lethal as a smartphone and an internet connection. Let's see what platforms can help you watch your new show.

fuboTV - We have fuboTV first on our list, and it's a platform we are particularly fond of because it features over a hundred channels for $54.99 per month. There is a single bundle here called fubo, and it will give you access to loads of content, including the Food Network. If you want more content than the main bundle has to offer, you can add channel packs and premium Networks.

Sling TV - We continue with Sling TV, which is a highly customizable platform with three bundles to start up. These are called Orange, Blue, and Orange + Blue, but the Food Network is actually only available in the Blue and Orange + Blue bundles. The name of the bundle you're going to choose will also influence the number of simultaneous streams you will be able to enjoy. More specifically, the Blue bundle will get you three simultaneous streams, while if you go with the Orange + Blue bundle, you will be able to watch on up to four devices at once. If you want more content, there are plenty of packs here which offer channels gathered by theme and premium networks.

Philo - We also have Philo on the list, which is a single-bundle platform that offers 58 Channels for just $20 per month. The list of channels includes the Food Network along with many others. There are no extra packs of channels here or premium networks, so you'll have to make do with those 58 networks.

Hulu - Hulu also makes our list, and it's a platform that we are pretty sure you've heard of before. The live TV service they offer costs for $44.99 per month and gives users access to dozens of channels, including the Food Network, and the full video-on-demand service. If you want to customize your plan a little bit, there are a couple of packs that you can add as well as premium networks.

YouTube TV - We continue with YouTube TV, which is a platform coming from Alphabet Inc., which shows in the fact that subscribers can enjoy unlimited Cloud DVR storage space. There is a single bundle of channels here that includes the Food Network, and there are no extra packs that you can add. There are, however, quite a few premium networks that can help enhance your subscription.

DirecTV Now - The next recommendation to make our list is DirecTV Now which is a platform that comes with seven bundles, two of which were added earlier this year. Plus and Max are two that were added earlier this year, but they do not feature the Food Network. The other five bundles have been around for much longer, but they were given a new name and a new price when Plus and Max were introduced in spring. Entertainment, Choice, Xtra, Ultimate, and Optimo Mas all featured the Food Network. If you need more content, it is possible to add a couple of packs featuring Spanish channels, three packs featuring International channels, and several premium networks.

PlayStation Vue - The last one to make our list is a platform that comes with some really great features, such as enough Cloud DVR storage space for 500 programs, five simultaneous streams, and the possibility to watch up to three programs at once on the same screen. There are four bundles of channels here called Access, Core, Elite, and Ultra, and they all feature the Food Network. There are only a couple of extra channel packs that you can add here, but there are also a few premium networks. PlayStation Plus subscribers will get access to these at much better prices.

Can You Binge-Watch Family Restaurants Rivals?

When the show starts airing in late August, you're going to be able to watch the episodes on the Food Network's website. It is unclear when the show will also become available on Hulu, which is the go-to platform for the Food Network shows.

The show should also become available to purchase either by individual episodes or the full season on platforms like Google Play, YouTube, iTunes, Microsoft Store, Amazon Prime, and Vudu. We'll come back and update with links when they become available, and you should check them all in case that the service offers a better price for you in that specific moment stop
