It’s time for the second round of The Voice of the year! A new season from the beloved show is landing on NBC this September and we can’t wait to see what the gang is up to this time around and who will be the lucky contestants to join the teams.
The Voice first premiered in the US back in 2011 and has since gone through a slew of judges, including Christina Aguilera, Shakira, Usher, Pharell Williams, Miley Cyrus, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson, and more. Blake Shelton is the only one that has kept through all seasons after Adam Levine dropped out after last season. Alongside Shelton, this season we’ll see John Legend, Kelly Clarkson, and Gwen Stefani. Things should be particularly interesting this time around since Stefani and Shelton have become a couple since Stefani last sat on The Voice chair as a judge. Carson Daly, of course, will host the show.

The show will also be interesting to watch following Adam Levine’s departure after so many seasons. Not only was he a star that you instantly associated with The Voice but his bromance and continuous banter with Shelton were hilarious and endearing to watch. It remains to be seen what the chemistry will be now that the show has lost the Maroon 5 frontman. If we’re to judge by the video above, there’s fun waiting.
The show has already announced its Battle advisors for the Battle rounds. Normani will join Team Kelly, Usher will join Team Legend, Will.I.Am will help Team Gwen, while Darius Rucker will be on Team Blake.
When and Where to Watch The Voice?
The 17th season of The Voice will start on September 23rd, 2019, on NBC. The show usually runs on Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 PM ET, unless otherwise announced by NBC, so make sure to clear your schedule two nights a week.
How Can I Live Stream The Voice?
Watching The Voice online is quite easy to do nowadays, especially since NBC is one of the main channels and it is featured by pretty much all platforms on the market. One of the best ways to watch NBC is with Sling TV, which is one of the most versatile platforms on the market, with a ton of customization options. Start your Sling TV subscription by saving 40% off your first month!
NBC is present in two of the three bundles on Sling TV, namely Blue and Orange + Blue. If you choose the Blue bundle, you’ll get to watch content on three devices at the same time, while choosing Orange + Blue will enable you to watch content on up to four devices at once. There are loads of channel packs that you can get if you want more content, as well as premium networks and a la carte channels.
Sling TV works on a slew of devices, including Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, Android TV, AirTV Player, Xiaomi, LG, or Samsung Smart TVs, iOS, Android, Xbox, Fire Tablets, and browsers. Unfortunately, there’s no PlayStation support. (Note: Sling TV is a platform that is only available in the United States so you’re going to need a VPN to change your IP address and trick the site into thinking you’re still in the US if you want to watch any content when traveling abroad. Click here and you’ll learn an easy to way to get this done.)
Here’s everything you need to know to set up an account and start your Sling TV subscription:
- Visit Sling TV’s website and tap the “Get 40% Off” button in the middle of the screen so you can save some money for the first month of your subscription.
- You’ll get redirected to a page where you are required to input your email address and create a password to register for an account.
- Then, you’ll have to start your subscription process by picking your bundle. As mentioned, you have to choose between Blue and Orange+ Blue, but we’d go for the latter because it has all the channels you need as a base.
- Next, you can add extra channel packs if you want, as well as the DVR feature to your package. The packs feature channels that have similar thematics – kids, comedy, sports, etc.
- Scroll down and you can add premium and a la carte channels, such as Starz, Showtime, Epix, and more.
- The last step involves providing your card data. The current deal Sling TV has going on involves cutting your first-month subscription by 40%, but they may return to the regular 7-day free trial at any point.
Other Ways to Watch The Voice
fuboTV – Another great platform is fuboTV which provides people with a single bundle of channels that you can try out easily. Start your 7-day free trial on fuboTV! You can add loads of channel packs to your subscription, as well as premium networks.
PlayStation Vue – We particularly love PlayStation Vue, which is a service that offers all subscribers enough cloud DVR storage space for 500 programs and 5 simultaneous streams at no additional cost. NBC is part of all four bundles on PlayStation Vue – Access, Core, Elite, and Ultra.
What Can I Do to Watch The Voice Outside of the United States?
When you travel outside of the United States you’ll discover that all your beloved platforms, whether live TV, streaming services, or TV network websites, are geoblocked. Sling TV, fuboTV, and PlayStation Vue all have to respect the same licensing deals so they can’t allow broadcasts to take place outside of US borders. While this is quite inconvenient, you can solve the problem by using a VPN to change your IP address. We recommend using ExpressVPN because it’s easily one of the best on the market.
Here’s what you need to do to use ExpressVPN to watch The Voice abroad:
- First, you must subscribe to ExpressVPN (49% OFF) by visiting their website. If you don’t like the service you can always ask for a refund since they have a 30-day money-back guarantee. Start by tapping on the big “Get ExpressVPN” button and follow the instructions to set up an account.
- Download and install the app on your device. Follow up by launching the tool and logging into your account when possible.
- Find a server that is located in the United States and connect to it. ExpressVPN has dozens of these available.
- As soon as the connection is established, you can load Sling TV to watch The Voice on NBC.
Can I Watch The Voice on NBC’s Website?
Sure, you can! NBC’s website features a live stream that you can access by simply signing into account. You can do this by using credentials from your TV provider, which can be a cable company if you have yet to cut the cord or a live TV service such as Sling TV, fuboTV, or PlayStation Vue. (Note: NBC’s website is geoblocked, so you’re going to have some issues if you want to watch when traveling abroad. Similarly, NBC is only available in select markets, so you’re going to have to find a way to appear to be in a different city. You can solve both problems with a VPN by picking a server in a city that does get NBC coverage. Click here to find out how to do this easily.)
Can I Watch The Voice With a TV Antenna?
NBC is one of the last channels that continue to broadcast over the air, so using a TV antenna to watch the show is completely possible. In fact, TV antennas are some of the most popular devices among cord-cutters because they are cheap to purchase and you can watch TV for free.
Before you go ahead and jump at the chance, you should visit a site like NoCable which will tell you what channels broadcast over the air in your location by analyzing your zip code. It will also tell you how far from you the broadcast stations are so you can get the right range on your device and make the most of it. We’ve given you a suggestion – a device that has great reviews -, but you can do your own research if you want more options.
Can I Binge-Watch The Voice?
There have been plenty of seasons of The Voice so far and you can watch some of those on NBC’s own website. In fact, the most recent episodes can be watched for free, without even needing to log into an account, but this needs to be done soon after the episode was uploaded. The show’s seasons used to be present on Hulu, but they’ve been removed.
Unlike other shows, you can’t purchase The Voice episodes from major platforms like Google Play or iTunes, but you can check out the musical moments on The Voice’s YouTube channel. You will, however, miss out on all the banter that makes the show funny, since most of those are cut out from the clips.
