Modern sitcom legends Michael Schur (Parks and Recreation, The Good Place, Brooklyn Nine-Nine) and Josh Malmuth (New Girl, Superstore) have a new hit up their sleeves with Abby’s.

Set in sunny San Diego, Abby (Natalie Morales) runs a bar out of her backyard, where the beers are cheap and the company is always great. Here’s the thing, though: Abby’s is a makeshift bar and totally unlicensed, but she still adheres to a very strict set of rules. Abby doesn’t allow her patrons to take out their cellphones, and all prospective customers must rise through the ranks to actually sit at the bar.

It all makes total sense, considering that she’s an ex-Marine staff sergeant. Unfortunately, her new landlord, the recently divorced Bill, isn’t too keen on the massive health code violations Abby is racking up in her backyard. Hopefully, he warms to the idea!

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

While there are variations in their coverage areas and other local channels, all of the major live TV streaming service offer NBC. Even better, you can try any of them with a one-week free trial, allowing you to get started with no upfront cost. 

1) Sling TV

For a more à la carte service, look to Sling TV. It offers two cable packages, Sling Orange and Sling Blue, both of which cost $25 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 need either Sling Blue or Sling Orange + Blue to get local channels like NBC, where you’ll stream Abby’s. You’ll also gain access to the usual cable mainstays like Food Network, Discovery, Cartoon Network, SYFY, and FXX. Here’s our complete guide to Sling TV channels.
