Nashville is a fictional drama about the country music scene. On one end of the scale, you have Rayna Jaymes (Connie Britton), a fading star who is fighting to stay relevant, and on the other end, there’s Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere) a young singer with a troubled past who is looking forward to taking Rayna’s place as the country music queen. As you can imagine, the show features plenty of music, back-stabbing, drama, and trouble. It’s certainly a good time, whether you’re a fan of country music or not. Want to know how to watch Nashville online? Just keep reading and we’ll tell you how.
Nashville is coming back to ABC after a 3-month, mid-season break. The show will return on March 16 at 10 p.m. ET. As ABC is an over-the-air network, you may be able to watch this show on your television, without cable, if you have a digital antenna. This guide will tell you all of the ways that you can watch Nashville online. There are a few low-cost options available to you, as well as a couple ways to watch Nashville online free.
Watch Nashville Online with Hulu
Hulu is one of the top streaming services available. Some of that popularity has to do with the competitive pricing options ($7.99 with limited commercials, $11.99 without) and the fact that it’s one of the few streaming companies that will give you access to new episodes from a variety of television networks. New episodes arrive on Hulu (review) anywhere from one day to two weeks after they originally air. In the case of watching Nashville, new episodes appear eight days after they air on ABC. In addition to new episodes, you can watch a selection of old episodes as well. Hulu also has a huge selection of full seasons of older shows and a rotating selection of movies. Best of all, you can watch Hulu from pretty much every available device, so it’s easily accessible.
If you want a chance to watch Nashville online free of charge, make sure to sign up for Hulu’s free 7-day trial. This will give you a chance to watch Nashville and anything you want for a week before you become a paying member.
Watch the Nashville Live Stream Using Sling TV
Sling TV is one of the most fairly priced live stream services available today. Sling TV gives viewers over 20 popular cable channels for $20 per month. You can also add additional channels, like HBO, for a small monthly fee. As there are no contracts, you just pay each month and cancel at any time. Sling TV (review) is available on all major devices, so you can watch from anywhere. In order to watch Nashville live stream as it airs on TV, you will need the Broadcast Extra package, which is an additional $5 a month. The Broadcast Extra package will give you access to ABC and a few other channels. In order to utilize this package, you need to live in one of the following areas: Chicago, Houston, Fresno-Visalia, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Raleigh-Durham. More cities will be added soon!
As Sling TV is a live stream service, you can watch your favorite shows as they air on TV. And since Sling offers a limited on-demand library, you can watch after some shows after they’ve aired. If you’re new to Sling TV, they have a free 7-day trial that will give you a chance to check it out, and it’s also a great way to watch Nashville free, along with other shows. Sling TV is also offering your choice of a free Roku 2 or half-off a Roku 3 when you order three months of Sling TV service. The Roku 2 works just as great as the Roku 3, so if you opt for the Roku 2, this deal essentially gives you three months of free Sling TV ($60 value) and $10 off your Roku 2 ($69.99 retail)!
Remember, if you want to watch Nashville online free, you need to sign up for the Sling TV free 7-day trial before Nashville’s return. It will give you at least one free episode before your paid membership begins.
Other Ways to Watch Nashville Streaming Online
If monthly subscription services aren’t your thing, you can opt for buying the season outright with any of the following services. This can get pricey, so rather than picking up separate episodes, it’s worth mentioning that you can save some money if you buy the season pass. The following services range in price and offerings, but all of them will allow you an easy way to watch Nashville online.
- Amazon Instant Video: Amazon offers new episodes at around $2 per episode, but the season pass allows you to save some money. You can cancel the season pass if you decide you don’t like or want the show, so you can save a little money and still cancel if you decide you no longer want the series. New episodes arrive after the episode airs on television.
- Vudu: Vudu offers decent deals and prices that are similar to Amazon. Season passes are still the best way to save money. New episodes arrive after they air on TV.
- iTunes: iTunes is generally the preferred way for Apple users to enjoy various media entertainment. The downside to iTunes is that the episodes are closer to $3 per episode. A season pass option is usually offered though still costs more than Amazon. New episodes are released on the same timetable.
