How to watch ‘Good Trouble’ for free

Sometimes, the bond between sisters runs far deeper than simple biology. Callie Adams Foster and Mariana Adams Foster come from a pretty unconventional family but together, they might have exactly what it takes to survive the mean streets of Los Angeles.

In this spinoff of the Freeform hit The Fosters, Callie and Mariana have left the nest of their cozy San Diego home to begin the next big phase of their lives, mainly the workforce. Callie is a law clerk for a stuffy conservative Judge Wilson, while recent MIT graduate Mariana spends her working hours as a software engineer. Soon, both become pretty disillusioned, Callie with the broken justice system, and Mariana with the male-dominated tech world. When they’re not clocking in their 9-to-5, they’re kicking back at home, in this case, the communal apartment building The Coterie. The duo must navigate their young adult lives while interacting with neighbors, bosses, and every other weirdo the City of Angels attracts.

Sling TV offers two cable packages based on your particular needs (Sling Orange and Sling Blue), both of which cost $25 per month, but only Sling Orange (channels shown above) comes with Freeform. That package also offers three ESPN channels, AMC, and more than a dozen other channels.
