How to stream ‘Shark Tank’ for free


Market competition at its finest.

Do you have an invention that could make a million bucks? Countless entrepreneurs across the country sure think so, until they face off against the investors of Shark Tank.

Inventors, salesmen, and budding businessmen present their plans (or lack thereof) to turn their idea into a massive money-making venture. The aptly named sharks pick apart the flaws and weaknesses in proposals to test contestants’ muster and business acumen. Then, if their ideas are good enough (like Squatty Potty and Tipsy Elves), the sharks offer big piles of money for a stake in their future earnings. All in all, Shark Tank is one of the most weirdly addictive, and occasionally educational reality competitions ever. 

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

All of the major live TV streaming services offer a one-week trial, so you can watch the latest episodes of Shark Tank 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 your favorite shows the morning after they premiered. 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 non-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.
