How to watch ‘The 100’ season 6 online for free

The 100 turns the post-apocalyptic genre on its head the way only the CW knows how. Loosely based on the series of novels by Kass Morgan, The 100 follows a group of adolescent misfits in their struggles to survive on an Earth ravaged by nuclear war. 

The end of season 5 saw The 100 finally giving up on Earth altogether, taking the team on the Ark to find a new planet to begin their new lives, ready to tackle the likely new struggles in this brave new world.

Here’s everything you need to know to watch The 100 online for free.

Hulu with Live TV is one of the most popular ways to stream live TV because you gain access to a massive library of on-demand content including classic and current TV shows and movies, not to mention Hulu’s original programming. You’ll also have almost 60 channels to watch live, including the CW, HGTV, a full suite of ESPN channels, Cartoon Network, FX, and even deep cuts like Nat Geo Wild and Syfy. Here’s the complete list of Hulu Live TV channels.



2) FuboTV

FuboTV only includes a live stream of the CW in select areas, so be sure to check before subscribing. Otherwise, you can watch on-demand the next day. If you’re a sports fan, different channel packages are available for basketball, soccer, golf, and even outdoor sports like rock climbing. But no worries, all the great cable channels you’re after are present too, including Viceland, Bravo, TBS, and IFC. Here’s the complete FuboTV channels list.


3) YouTube TV

YouTube TV is similar to FuboTV in its limitations to the CW, so be sure to check ahead of time. It’s a great solution for families because one subscription can add up to six accounts. Each account comes with unlimited cloud DVR. There are sports channels like NBCSN, NBA TV, and four ESPN channels. 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.)
