Back in 2006, when reality TV was just an infant, fans got to know a group of women sharing a home in the hills of Los Angeles. It didn’t take long before Lauren Conrad, Heidi Montag, Audrina Partridge, and Whitney Port were household names…at least among teenagers.
Fast forward to today. The Hills: New Beginnings will serve as a revival of the original show, granted with a few twists. For one, the entire cast won’t just be a new crop of fame-seeking teens. Heidi Montag, Stephanie Pratt, Brody Jenner, Audrina Patridge, and a handful of others will share a house with new cast members, including The O.C. star Mischa Barton. Will The Hills create new household names, or will the veterans hog up all the spotlight? Maybe a few unannounced stars will show up, or heck, there may even be a “leaked” sex tape. No matter who is in the house, the L.A. lifestyle will certainly bring out the best out of these aspiring stars.
Here’s everything you need to stream The Hills: New Beginnings.

The Hills: New Beginnings Reviews
What the critics are saying
- “Dull. … Everything is fake, except for the part where everyone really is hustling. … When you think about what’s driving The Hills, its emptiness becomes almost hilarious.” –Willa Paskin, Slate
- “I guess what’s so dismaying about New Beginnings is the watching of something that doesn’t understand itself, doesn’t seem to know what made it good and almost worthy to begin with. I wonder what LC thinks about it, if she’s watched. Maybe she hasn’t. Maybe she’s content in all her growth since, everything written after. I hope to feel that same peace when, next Monday night, I tune in to something else.” -Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair
How to stream The Hills: New Beginnings
MTV is available on two 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.
Philo is the least expensive streaming service, but it has some limitations. You won’t find the sports channels that dominate other packages or local channels. However, it’s the cheapest way to gain access to 60 great entertainment channels for only $20 a month. You’ll get popular channels like Animal Planet, MTV, Discovery, IFC, AMC, Lifetime, Nick Jr, and the Paramount Network, as well as deep cuts like ID and Game Show Network. You also get free cloud DVR, but shows recorded are deleted after 30 days, so binge responsibly.
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.
Sling’s now offering a 14-day free trial though July 6.
FuboTV was built from the ground up with sports fans in mind. There are different channel packages available whether you’re looking for basketball, soccer, golf, or even outdoor sports like rock climbing. But no worries, all the great cable channels you’re after are here too, including Viceland, Bravo, TBS, and IFC.
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.
There’s a good chance that you’re already looking to AT&T for your wireless needs. The second you sign up, you’ll gain instant access to 45+ channels, including local channels and even free HBO in the Plus and Max channel suites. Plus, it comes with CloudDVR, which lets you record up to 20 hours of TV per month. One account works on two devices, but you can add more devices for only $5.
