Do you have an invention that could make a million bucks? Countless entrepreneurs across the country sure think so, until they face off against the investors of Shark Tank.
Inventors, salesmen, and budding businessmen present their plans (or lack thereof) to turn their idea into a massive money-making venture. The aptly named sharks pick apart the flaws and weaknesses in proposals to test contestants’ muster and business acumen. Then, if their ideas are good enough (like Squatty Potty and Tipsy Elves), the sharks offer big piles of money for a stake in their future earnings. All in all, Shark Tank is one of the most weirdly addictive, and occasionally educational reality competitions ever.
Here’s everything you need to know to stream Shark Tank.

Shark Tank Reviews
What the critics are saying:
- “Once you get past its somewhat misleading title, Mark Burnett’s new Shark Tank is a well-paced hour that offers entertainment without humiliation.” –David Hinckley, New York Daily News
- “The cleverest part of the show is that it makes the judges into contestants; they compete against one another for the right to invest in a business, and they haggle with the entrepreneurs over the terms of their investment.” –Robert Lloyd, Los Angeles Times
How to stream Shark Tank
All of the major live TV streaming services offer a one-week trial, so you can watch the latest episodes of Shark Tank for free. But they all vary in terms of which local channels they offer and their coverage areas. In some cases, a live version of ABC won’t be available; instead, the service will offer an on-demand version, allowing you to watch your favorite shows the morning after they premiered. Be sure to use the links below to see exactly which channels you’ll receive with each service.
If you live in New York City, Philadelphia, Chicago, Houston, Denver, Boston, Dallas, or Washington, D.C., you can also try Locast, a non-for-profit service that lets you stream all of your local channels through any web browser. It’s a free service, but donations are encouraged.

Shark Tank on Sling TV
Sling offers two cable packages, Sling Orange and Sling Blue, each of which costs $30 per month. If you grab them both (Sling Orange + Blue) you can save $15 per month. To be clear, ABC is not normally available on Sling, but through the magic of AirTV, you can get all your local channels in a system that plays nice with Sling. A complete AirTV set up will allow you to get all your local channels and free you up to choose Sling—if a lack of ABC is what’s holding you back.
Here’s the complete guide to Sling TV channels.
|Orange + Blue||$50|
How to use AirTV with Sling
AirTV solves one of the Sling’s biggest problems: The inability to receive all of your local channels. By purchasing a basic AirTV for $79.99 or the AirTV Player for $119.99, you can merge your CBS affiliate and other local channels into your Sling TV, (or on your mobile device if you have the basic AirTV). As the Daily Dot wrote in its AirTV review, “It’s practically magic.”
The basic AirTV is a dual-tuner streaming device, while the AirTV Player is basically an upgraded Chromecast that has Netflix preinstalled. You’ll still need to own an HD antenna because even though AirTV gets you access to your local channels, it doesn’t actually physically show them to you.
But AirTV—which has no monthly fee—gives Sling users the ability to access all local channels to add to whichever Sling package is the best fit for them.
Shark Tank on Vidgo
Vidgo offers a package for under $40 a month that pulls together more than 60 English-language channels into its National English Package. Vidgo channels include ABC, Fox, the ESPN family of channels (including ESPN Deportes), and it’s one of the few streaming services that carries BeIN Sports. But it’s like Fubo in that, even though it started out for streaming sports, it carries a lot more now. You might be surprised to know that Vidgo’s an option to stream Shark Tank—and then you chat about it online via Vidgo’s Social TV platform.
|English Premium Package||$66.33/ 3 months|
|English Plus Package||$53/ 3 months|
