By Gabriela Vatu / April 25, 2019

If you think your family is crazy, well, you may want to watch The Kids Are Alright on ABC. You can easily watch The Kids Are Alright online these days, and we're going to tell you how you can do that.

The show focuses on an Irish Catholic family that raises eight sons in the 70s, which makes for loads of madness. The first time the show aired was in October 2018, so it's only the first season. A few more episodes are left before the May 21st finale, so you should hurry up and watch it all.

If you want to watch The Kids Are Alright, tune in on ABC on Tuesdays, at 8:30/7:30c. Since this is ABC, you can easily watch the show online.

Can You Watch The Kids Are Alright Live on ABC's Website?

Yes, you can find a live stream over on ABC's website which you can use to watch the show. You'll need to log into an account there and, in order to actually unlock the live stream, to prove that you pay for a TV plan somewhere that includes ABC. So, you're going to have to associate a TV provider account, whether cable or live TV platform. Since you are interested in watching the show online, we suggest cutting the cord and watching TV online anyway. Let's see how you can do that and what your options are.

What Live TV Platforms Can You Watch ABC On?

Nowadays, as we use the Internet for everything, it makes more sense than ever to also watch TV online. Live TV platforms are also far cheaper than cable is and you can even customize the plans so you can pay for the things you want to watch. Plus, if you want to cancel your subscription you can do that in two seconds flat, without having to waste hours on the phone with the retention department. The best part, however, is that you can watch TV online, wherever you may be when the show starts. Even if you're on the bus, as long as you have your smartphone and an active Internet connection, you're good to go. Let's see what platforms you can subscribe to watch the show on.

Hulu - First on our list, we have Hulu, which is one of the best platforms of this type we've seen on the market. The live TV plan costs $44.99 per month and includes access to dozens of channels, including ABC, as well as the video on demand library, which is pretty cool as it's a 2 in 1 kind of situation. There are several customization options available too, via the channel packs they offer or the premium networks they have at their disposal.

YouTube TV - Next on the list, we have YouTube TV, which is a single-bundle platform that offers some great channels for only $50 per month. The list of channels does include ABC, as well as the likes of Discovery, which were recently added. You can customize the service by adding a few premium networks, as there are no channel packs available. The perks YouTube TV subscribers get are pretty great, however, and you should totally check them out.

DirecTV Now - The list continues with DirecTV Now, which is a highly versatile service with seven bundles to choose from. Two of the bundles are brand new - Plus ($50/mo) and Max ($70/mo) -, while the other five have been around for a while but they recently got a new name and a new price tag that's about double than what it used to be - Entertainment ($93/mo), Choice ($110/mo), Xtra ($124/mo), Ultimate ($135/mo), and Optimo Mas ($86/mo). All seven bundles feature ABC so you can choose the one you like most. There are also some customization options available, including two packs featuring Spanish channels, several international packs, and a few premium networks.

PlayStation Vue - We've got PlayStation Vue next, which is a great service that we highly enjoyed when during the review process. There are four bundles available here, namely Access, Core, Elite, and Ultra, and you can pick whichever suits your needs best. ABC is part of all four bundles, so you don't have to worry about that when making a decision. There are some ways you can get more content here, such as by adding any of the channel packs or premium networks.

What Can You Do If ABC Isn't Available in Your Area?

ABC is one of those channels that are available mostly everywhere, but not quite. Even when it comes to live TV platforms, the channel is only accessible in certain markets. Thankfully, since these platforms operate online, there is something you can do about the situation. You see, these services work like any other website and know where you are by looking at your IP address. If you use a VPN to change that IP address so you appear to be in a more populated location, such as New York City or Chicago, for instance, where ABC is available in, you'd get to watch the network too. So here's what you need to do.

Note: One thing we must point out here is that the very same steps we just described can be followed if you ever find yourself traveling abroad for whatever reason. Live TV platforms and streaming services are geoblocked, so you can only enjoy them if you're in the United States. So, as soon as you're abroad you get blocked off, but if you have a VPN to connect to a US server, you can circumvent the blockade.

Can You Watch The Kids Are Alright With a TV Antenna?

Absolutely! ABC is one of the channels that broadcast over the air, so you can easily use a TV antenna to "catch" that broadcast. Antennas are quite popular among cord cutters because the devices are cheap and you get to watch TV for free afterward. The only downside we can mention is the limited number of channels you can watch in this way, which is a big difference from the hundreds you'd get on cable. But, it's free, so you can't really complain too much.

Before making a decision, however, we suggest you visit a site like NoCable. This one can help you figure out which channels are available in your area and how strong their broadcast signal is. If you're happy with the list of channels, you can use the second bit of info to figure out what range you should look for in a device. We've already recommended you one antenna, which has great reviews, but you can do your own research, of course.

How Can You Binge on The Kids Are Alright Episodes?

The Kids Are Alright is quite easy to watch online. If you'll visit ABC's own website, you'll find that all episodes are available there. You will, however, need to log into an account to enjoy them. If you have a Hulu subscription you can also watch the show there, with new episodes getting added every week after the show airs.

If you really enjoy the show and want to own its episodes and seasons, you can start by checking out some of the popular platforms that sell them to you. You can find the episodes on Amazon Prime, YouTube, Google Play, iTunes, Microsoft Store, or Vudu. We recommend checking all links to find out whether there are any active deals available on either platform at the time of your purchase.
