The show airs on Wednesdays at 8/7c on Freeform, which is part of the ABC family. So, let’s go ahead and learn all about how you can watch Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists live online.
Can You Watch Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists on the Freeform Website for Free?
Yes, you can. Well, in a manner of speaking. You still need to set up an account with an email and password, as well as to link an account from a TV provider, whether that’s a cable company or a live TV platform. The essential part is that you need to be able to first watch Freeform on your TV through a different source.
What Live TV Services Can You Pick to Watch Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists On?
We use the internet for pretty much everything these days, whether we’re chatting with our friends, working, binging on cool shows or laughing at memes. So, why not also use it to watch TV? Many people have taken this step over the past few years, choosing to cut the cord and pick a platform that offers cheaper plans and allows some customization to be made. Plus, since there’s no contract, you can cancel the subscription at any time and be on your merry way. You also no longer have to be home to watch your shows when they start, because you can watch when you’re on the bus home, as long as you have an Internet connection and a compatible device. Now, let’s see exactly what options you have.
Sling TV – We’re kicking off our list with a platform that actually comes with a lot of customization options. There are three bundles to choose from – Orange, Blue, and Orange + Blue -, a lot of channel packs grouped by interest, and loads of premium networks. When looking for Freeform, you’re going to find the channel in the Orange and Orange + Blue bundles. If you want to find out more, including which bundle is best to pick to give you the perfect perks, make sure to read our Sling TV review.
Hulu – Next up we have Hulu, which is a great option, especially for those that have been long-time subscribers to the video on demand service. For $44.99 per month, users can access dozens of channels, including Freeform, as well as the full VOD library. There are a couple of channel packs available if you want to customize, plus several premium networks. Check out TechNadu’s Hulu review for more info.
YouTube TV – Coming up next, we have YouTube TV, which is a service backed by Alphabet Inc, and that shows in the great perks it offers subscribers. The plan costs $40 per month and includes access to dozens of channels, Freeform included. The platform is pretty simplistic in the sense that there’s only one bundle to pick and no other channel packs. There are, however, several premium networks if you really want more. Read our YouTube TV review for more info.
DirecTV Now – Another great platform is DirecTV Now, even though it has lost some of its shine since the bundle overhaul from mid-March. There are now two bundles left to pick from – Plus and Max -, and you can find Freeform in both of them. There are a couple of Spanish-language channel packs if you want to add, as well as several premium networks and three international bundles. Check out TechNadu’s DirecTV Now review for more details.
PlayStation Vue – We’re wrapping things up with PlayStation Vue, which is one of the best platforms we encountered. There are four bundles you can choose from here – Access, Core, Elite, and Ultra – and Freeform is part of all of them. You can add a couple of extra packs if you want, as well as several premium networks. Our PlayStation Vue review includes loads of info on those really cool perks they offer.
What Can You Do If You Travel Abroad and Can’t Access the Live Streams?
Live TV platforms, as well as Freeform’s own website, are geoblocked. This means that, due to licensing deals, they aren’t allowed to broadcast the content just anywhere, and have to limit it to the United States. So, as soon as you travel abroad, you’re going to find that you can no longer access the services you’re paying for. It’s annoying, but it’s just the way things are. There are, however, easy solutions to the problem – using VPNs. Here’s what you need to do.
- The first step involves picking a VPN. We’ve reviewed dozens over the years, so we have a bit of experience on the topic and we recommend going with ExpressVPN. So, visit ExpressVPN and subscribe to the service, download and install the apps.
- Then, launch the app, sign into your account and pick a server that’s located in the United States. Connect to it.
- Once the connection goes live your IP address will reflect the location of the selected server, so you can load up the live TV platform you chose.
- Sign into your account, switch to Freeform and enjoy watching Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists.
How Can You Watch Older Episodes of Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists?
Well, there’s only been one episode broadcast so far, but more will come. So, you can go over to Freeform and watch the episodes if you’ve set up your account there. If you’re a Hulu subscriber, you can also check out the latest episodes the day after they air, which is pretty cool. The original Pretty Little Liars show is also featured on Netflix, so there’s hope the new spinoff will land there too.
If you’d rather own the episodes and the whole season, as a matter of fact, you can also purchase them all from various platforms, including iTunes, Microsoft Store, and Vudu. The prices are pretty similar, but make sure to check them all when you do decide to make the purchase in case there’s a price drop for any reason. The show should also show up on Amazon Prime, Google Play, and YouTube, but at the time of publishing, it had not done so yet. We’ll update with links when they become available.
