The global pandemic may have delayed the party for Bachelor Nation, but the wait is finally over. The long-awaited new season of The Bachelorette is finally starting.

Clare Crawley, a 39-year-old from Sacramento, California came close to tying the knot with season Juan Pablo Galavais in season 18 of The Bachelor. Technically runner up, Crawley bowed out of the season on her own terms—but not before putting Galvais in his place with some firey last words. After two more attempts at love in Bachelor in Paradise and a third in Bachelor Winter Games, Crawley is back with a vengeance in her own season 16 of The Bachelorette.

Will Crawley finally find love this time? How many men will pick her up and twirl her around? Who will be the Luke P. of the season and why am I still mad about Tyler C.? Only time will tell. At least Barb won’t be there.

Here’s everything you need to know to stream The Bachelorette.

The Bachelorette Reviews

What the critics are saying:

  • “Based on how sleepy and slurry the men become, it took a loooong time for producers to get enough usable footage from the opening-night cocktail party to fill the premiere. But the drunker the dudes get, the funnier they become.” –Kristen Baldwin, Entertainment Weekly

Batchelorette live stream: How to watch The Bachelorette

All of the following live TV streaming services offer a one-week trial, so you can watch the latest episodes of The Bachelorette 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 the next day. 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 not-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.

The Bachelorette on Hulu with Live TV

Hulu Live TV is one of the most popular ways to stream ABC, given the service is owned by Disney. It’s a great option for all live TV, but you also 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. Plus, you’ll be able to stream The Bachelorette.

The Bachelorette 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.

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.

The Bachelorette 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.

The Bachelorette on YouTube TV

YouTube TV is a great solution for families looking for ABC 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.)
