Originally, this special, star-studded season was only available on streaming giant Netflix. After four years, the show is back on the channel it spent the final year of its original run, The CW.

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life Reviews

What the critics are saying:

  • “The rapid-fire patter gets more room to breathe, all the better for cheeky asides or pointed repetitions. That’s good news for those who come for the witty repartee, and bad news for the Luke Daneses in the audience who dread set-pieces featuring elaborate festivals or Stars Hollow town meetings.” -Erik Adams, AV Club

How to stream Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life

The CW is available on a few of the major live TV streaming services. When trying to decide which one is best for you, you’ll want to weigh the cost, the other channels you’ll receive, and the compatible devices for streaming.

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life on Hulu Live TV

Hulu Live TV is one of the most popular ways to stream the CW, perhaps because you gain access to a massive library of on-demand content. This includes classic and current TV shows, movies, not to mention Hulu’s original programming. As far as live-streaming goes, you’ll have a ton of local, entertainment, and sports channels to flip through. This includes HGTV, a full suite of ESPN channels, Cartoon Network, FX, and even deep cuts like Nat Geographic and Syfy.

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life on Fubo TV

FuboTV started as a streaming service geared toward sports fans. It’s evolved into a broadly-appealing option with entertainment and news options alongside its robust sports choices. Depending on the package, you can access as many as 181 FuboTV channels. If you’re looking to be entertained, Bravo, IFC, MTV, and VH1 are options even at Fubo’s most basic tier. The Fubo channel list still includes plenty of sports, including the Fubo Sports Network, which has original programming mixing sports and humor. The FuboTV cost starts at $54.99 a month, and with Disney Media favorites like ABC, ESPN, and the Disney Channel coming on board in 2020, some who were on the fence about Fubo are giving it another look.

To watch the CW, you’ll need to be in a specific market that carries it, but if yours does, you can get it at any service level.
