How to watch ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ for free

Highly skilled dancers showcase their talents as they climb to the top.

It’s not just a caddy question, it’s also the longest running television dance competition, not to mention, the most heart-pumping one. After all Soul Train never went this hard.

Open auditions take place in cities across the U.S., open to 18-30 year-olds who can, as a wise man once said, “get jiggy with it.” Dancers who manage to impress the scrutinous judges move onto the main stage where they must perform again, this time…for America. The beauty of it is the dance styles featured are as diverse as the country, featuring everything from classical to street and club styles, and even moves straight out of the world musical theater. Soft shoe has never been this hardcore. 

The show’s 16th season features the return of ballroom dancing expert Mary Murphy, who joins the illustrious panel of choreographers including  Beyoncé’s own Laurieann Gibson, and show creator Nigel Lythgoe. Lythgoe, besides being the most British man alive, was also the dude who developed choreography for the Muppets.

So You Think You Can Dance Reviews

What the critics are saying:

  • “Though the voice-over narration could have been more informative, the biggest drawback in the first two episodes was producer Nigel Lythgoe functioning as the Donald Trump of dance by firing dancers right and left.” –Lewis Segal, Los Angeles Times
  • “As a director, Nigel Lythgoe works the judge’s reaction shots, often forgetting wallflowers enjoy watching the dancers, not other wallflowers.” –Laura Fries, Variety

How to stream So You Think You Can Dance

Fox is available on a handful 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.

So You Think You Can Dance on Hulu with Live TV

Hulu Live TV is one of the most popular ways to stream live TV, perhaps because you gain access to a massive library of on-demand content including 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, including HGTV, a full suite of ESPN channels, Cartoon Network, FX, and even deep cuts like Nat Geographic and Syfy.

So You Think You Can Dance on Sling TV

For a more à la carte service, look to Sling TV. It 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 $10 per month. Sling Blue offers more bang for your buck with over 40 channels, including sports necessities like FS1, NBCSN, and NFL Network. You’ll also gain access to the usual cable mainstays like Food Network, Discovery, Cartoon Network, SYFY, and FXX. Whichever package you choose, you can save $10 on your first month. Here’s the complete guide to Sling TV channels.

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 those 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.

So You Think You Can Dance 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, including ABC, Fox, the Disney family of channels, the ESPN family of channels (including ESPN Deportes), FS1, FS2, Fox Deportes and BeIN Sports. It offers an array of entertainment favorites, including A&E, HGTV, History, Lifetime, and a full range of Nickelodeon channels, including TeenNick and NickToons.

College sports fans will love it, too: The ACCN, Big Ten Network, the Longhorn Network, and Pac-12 Network are all on the Core package, and for $10 more, the Plus package offers all six market-specific Pac-12 Networks.

So You Think You Can Dance on YouTube TV

YouTube TV is a great solution for families because one subscription can add up to six accounts, and each account comes with unlimited cloud DVR. You can’t beat the variety, either: There are sports channels like NBCSN, NBA TV, and four ESPN channels, while Disney, Disney XD, Disney Junior, and Cartoon Network will keep any kid (or kid at heart) busy for hours. It also comes with a few Spanish-language channels like Telemundo and NBC Universo. AMC, BBC America, and IFC are there too, so you won’t miss out on all that prestige TV. (You can find the full list of YouTube TV channels here.)
