Can I watch ‘The Bachelor’ live on Hulu?

Or do we need to pay for yet another streaming service?

Whether you love it, hate it, watch it loudly and proudly, or as a guilty pleasure, The Bachelor is back for its 27th season with 30 women vying for the affections of The Bachelorette runner-up Zach Shallcross.

While the post-television success of The Bachelor’s relationships is quite often hit or miss or even inconsequential entirely (as Nick Viall demonstrated in season 21), it’s undeniable that ABC’s rose-distributing formula of love and drama has a draw that ropes its enduring audience back again and again. 

With most television networks tying in streaming services, it can get a bit confusing as to where exactly you need to tune in to get your weekly dose of The Bachelor. Where do you turn? We’ve got you covered.

If you were hoping to catch The Bachelor live without a digital antenna or cable—or needing to loosen your purse strings for live TV streaming—you’re unfortunately out of luck. Hulu is still one of the fastest places you’ll be able to catch The Bachelor, but you’ll have to wait. The only place to catch The Bachelor as it airs is on ABC – the latest episode will be added to Hulu the following day. There are digital TV subscription services, such as Hulu Live TV and YouTube TV, which will allow you to watch, but those will set you back at least $65 per month. 

The Bachelor airs Mondays on ABC.
