How to watch ‘The Hills: New Beginnings’ for free

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 watch The Hills: New Beginnings for free.

How to watch The Hills: New Beginnings for free

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.

Thankfully, no matter which service you pick, you’ll start with a one-week trial, so you can watch The Hills: New Beginnings for free.

1) Sling TV

Sling TV offers two cable packages based on your particular needs (Sling Orange and Sling Blue), both of which cost $25 per month. Sling Orange also offers three ESPN channels, AMC, and more than a dozen other channels. But it’s worthwhile to upgrade to Sling Orange + Blue package, which costs $40 per month and comes with great sports channels like FS1 and FS2, NBCSN, and NFL Network, and more. If you want access to MTV you will need to grab the Comedy Extra package which will run you $5 extra per month. Along with MTV, this add-on comes with truTV, MTV2, CMT, TV Land, Logo, and a few other networks. (Here’s the complete guide to Sling TV channels.)


2) Philo

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 MTV at only $16 a month. You will also find the best deal on popular channels like Animal Planet, IFC, Lifetime, and more. You also get free cloud DVR, but shows recorded are deleted after 30 days, so binge responsibly.


3) FuboTV

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, 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.


Other ways to watch The Hills: New Beginnings

1) and MTV app

You can watch a live stream of MTV on the official site. However, you will need to log in using credentials from a cable provider or streaming service. Note: Philo will work, but FuboTV and Sling TV will not. Some clips are available totally free, but you will need to register an account with MTV before streaming. The MTV app works just like the website. Download the app, plug in your credentials, and watch 2019 MTV Movie and TV Awards or your favorite MTV shows on the go.
