By Gabriela Vatu / September 29, 2020

NBC is bringing back one of the most successful game shows in the world, namely Weakest Link. We're going to watch Weakest Link online, so join us in figuring out how you can do the same.

The show isn't at its first presence in the United States, as it ran for a few seasons on NBC back in 2001 and 2002. Now, the show is returning with Jane Lynch as host.

The game rules remain unchanged from the original British version, where the contestants were trying to reach and bank a set target by providing correct answers. In 2020, the revival brings a $1 million jackpot.

When and Where to Watch Weakest Link?

Weakest Link is going to premiere the game show revival on September 29th. You'll be able to watch it starting at 8:00 PM.

After three weeks, the show will move on Mondays at 10 PM, following another successful NBC show, The Voice.

How Can I Live Stream Weakest Link?

If you want to watch Weakest Link, then you'll have a few ways to do this because live TV platforms can help you cut the cord and switch to watching the show online exclusively. Live TV platforms are pretty awesome, and they allow you to watch thousands of channels. One of the platforms we love the most when it comes to watching NBC is Sling TV.

Sling TV has three bundles available, but only two of them feature the NBC networks, namely Blue and Orange + Blue. Before making your choice, you need to know that the differences run deeper than the number of channels they each have available or the channel combination and the price. More specifically, it is about the number of simultaneous streams that each subscriber is allowed on their account. Blue subscribers can watch content on three devices simultaneously, and Orange + Blue subscribers get four simultaneous streams.

There are also numerous extra channel packs and premium networks that will definitely capture your attention, as well as add-ons to expand the cloud DVR storage space capacity. Sling TV works on loads of devices, including iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, Apple TV, Android TV, Fire TV, Chromecast, Roku, and many others.

Sling TV is an awesome platform, but here are other options you can resort to as well in order to watch Weakest Link.

Hulu is a great service that has one hundred networks in a single bundle. You can add extra channel packs and premium networks to your account if you want more content. A really cool thing about Hulu is that all Live TV subscribers can enjoy access to the Hulu On-Demand library, which means you have two platforms to play with. Start your free trial on Hulu now!

fuboTV is also a service that you should definitely take into consideration. There is a single bundle here, but it features over one hundred networks. You should also keep in mind that the main bundle is part of several plans, which means you get to enjoy extra channel packs and premium networks at discount prices. You can also customize your experience on your own by picking the packs and channels that you like most. Start your free trial on fuboTV now!

Note
NBC is a channel that broadcasts in select markets only. If you live in an area where you do not get coverage for the network, you can use a VPN and connect to a server from a different city. This will easily allow you to watch content in that specific region. Continue reading to find out more about how you can make this work.

How Can I Watch Weakest Link From Anywhere?

If you're hoping to watch Weakest Link even when you travel abroad, you should know that's going to be a little bit more difficult than usual - but not impossible. Live TV platforms and streaming services from the United States are all geo-blocked, which makes them harder to access when you travel abroad. However, as simple VPN will help you quite a bit.

A VPN can route your internet connection through its foreign servers and assign a new IP address to your device in order to make it seem like you are in a different location. Our recommendation is to use ExpressVPN, which is a great tool, with thousands of servers all over the world and some great privacy features thanks to the encryption protocols it makes use of.

You need to subscribe to ExpressVPN (49% OFF), get the apps for your device, and find a server in the United States to connect to. Once the connection is established, you'll be able to load Sling TV and start watching Weakest Link on NBC. ExpressVPN has a 30-day money-back guarantee policy, so if you have any problems whatsoever, you can always ask for a refund.

How Can I Watch Weakest Link With a TV Antenna?

NBC is one of the few channels that continue to broadcast over-the-air, making it possible for you to follow the content with the help of an antenna. These devices are fairly cheap, and they enable you to watch content from local networks like NBC.

Before you buy anything, you should check a site like NoCable to learn more about the channels available in your specific area and whether NBC is part of that list. Furthermore, you'll also find more information about all the channels that broadcast in your area and how far the stations are from your home. This last detail is great information to have when you're trying to figure out what range you need your device to cover.

Talking of which, you should check the devices we listed above in case any of them have the right features to make it into your home.

Can I Binge-Watch Weakest Link?

Weakest Link episodes are going to be available to stream on the NBC website shortly after they air on TV. You'll also be able to find the show over on Peacock, which is the NBC streaming service.
