How to Watch ‘The Bachelorette’ Online: Live Stream Season 15 Episodes

By Gabriela Vatu / July 23, 2019

Dating game shows have a way to pull us in, wondering who will end up with whom, whether or not this contestant will win or maybe it's that other one. It's a whole lot of crazy that we can call our guilty pleasure and be done with it. So, if you also want to have fun watching The Bachelorette live online this time around, we're here to help you out.

The season that will premiere on May 13 on ABC will be the fifteenth and it will feature Hannah Brown in the main role. Hannah was one of the early favorites of the 23rd season of The Bachelor, but she was dumped after meeting Colton Underwood's family. Everything is for the best, apparently, because the 24 years-old former Miss Alabama USA will get the chance at love on her own terms.

The show will air on ABC on Mondays. The time the show will air is still unclear, but the previous series filled the 8 PM ET timeslot. Let's go ahead and learn all there is to know about watching The Bachelorette.

How to Watch The Bachelorette Online?

Across the United States, there are several channels that can be watched via local stations, including ABC. Live TV platforms are also affected by this location issue, but the good news is that you can easily overcome the problem with the help of a VPN. You see, live TV platforms judge your location like any other website - by reading your IP address. If your IP address would show you are in a different location, such as a large metropolitan area, for instance, then you could watch ABC. Here's what you need to do.

Note: We have to mention that the very same method we just described can be used if you ever find yourself unable to access the live TV service you've subscribed to because you're outside the United States. Live TV platforms and streaming services are geoblocked, which means you can only enjoy them from within the US. Well, by changing your IP address, you can easily circumvent the blockade and enjoy your content as per usual.

Can You Watch The Bachelorette for free on ABC's Website?

Well, yes and no. You can watch The Bachelorette on ABC live, but you can't do it for free. More specifically, you need to set up an account and associate credentials you have from a cable provider or a live TV platform. This means that you're certainly paying to watch ABC. We suggest going for a live TV platform, however, because those are better at handling high volumes of traffic.

How to Stream The Bachelorette without Cable?

Nowadays, we already use the Internet for pretty much anything, whether we're talking about chatting with our friends, having fun on YouTube, gaming, watching our favorite shows, and more, so why not also watch TV online? Cable has become extremely expensive and it's impossible to make those plans your own. Plus, that contract they make you sign doesn't allow you to cancel early without paying an arm and a leg for it. On the other hand, live TV platforms are far cheaper, they can be customized, and you can cancel whenever you feel like it because there's nothing keeping you from that. Plus, you can watch your favorite shows no matter where you are when they start airing because you only need a smartphone (or another compatible device) and an Internet connection. Let's see what options you have moving forward.

Hulu - Topping our list, we have Hulu, which is a great service that offers loads of channels for only $44.99 per month. The list of channels they offer is pretty extensive and it does include ABC, so you're good to go. Make sure to also customize the service by adding two channel packs and premium networks if you so desire. Check out our Hulu review to better understand the service.

YouTube TV - Our next suggestion is YouTube TV, which is a great single-bundle platform. Priced at only $40 per month, you can have loads of fun watching dozens of channels, including ABC. If you want to customize the service, you only have premium networks to pick from. On the other hand, the perks subscribers are offered, which you can read all about in our YouTube TV review, are pretty great in themselves

PlayStation Vue - Another great option is to pick PlayStation Vue, which comes with loads of great perks. There are four bundles to pick from here - Access, Core, Elite, and Ultra - and ABC is part of them all. There are also several premium networks available, as well as extra channel packs. Make sure to give TechNadu's PlayStation Vue review a read to make sure you have the full story, especially about those perks.

DirecTV Now - DirecTV Now is another option we're sure you'll want to check out. There are now two featured bundles here - Plus and Max - and five older bundles that used to have a different name and used to cost half of what they do now - Entertainment, Choice, Xtra, Ultimate, and Optimo Mas. ABC is part of all seven bundles, so you can pick whichever one you like best. If you want, there are also two packs featuring Spanish-language channels, as well as several international bundles, plus several premium networks. Make sure to give our DirecTV Now review a read before making a decision.

Sling TV - Last on our list, we have Sling TV, which is a platform that doesn't actually feature ABC. But, if you read our Sling TV review and find yourself liking this platform enough to subscribe to it, consider paying for two or three months in advance because they'll give you a free TV antenna. It is through that antenna that you'll be able to watch ABC.

How Can You Watch The Bachelorette With a TV Antenna?

There are several channels across the United States that you can watch with the help of a TV antenna, and ABC is part of that list. The benefits of having such an antenna start with the low price one of these devices has and continues with the fact that you get to watch TV for free. The only downside we can think of is the very limited number of channels you'd actually get to watch.

Before making a decision on what antenna to buy, make sure to visit a site like NoCable where you can check to see what channels were available in your area and how strong their broadcast signal is. If it's all ok with you, you can go ahead and buy the antenna that's right for you.

How Can You Watch Older Episodes of The Bachelorette?

With this being the fifteenth season, The Bachelorette is one of the success stories, managing to get renewed season after season. It also means that if you want to watch the show's seasons, you have some catching up to do. The ABC website gives users access to the most recent five episodes of the show, which won't help you much other than keep up with the latest episodes you may have missed. The show used to be available on Hulu too, but it's been pulled. Here's to hoping the show returns to the platform when the new season starts.

On the other hand, if you want to purchase episodes and seasons of The Bachelorette, you can go right ahead and get them from the likes of iTunes, Google Play, YouTube, Vudu, Microsoft Store, and Amazon Prime.
