Freeform, formerly ABC Family, has had a reputation for great programming for several years. This may have been the impetus to change from their family-friendly network image to one geared more toward original programming for young adult audiences. The new series, Beyond, is no exception. It will premiere on Monday, January 2, 2017 at 9 p.m. ET. You won’t want to miss it, so how can you watch Beyond online?
After 12 years, a young man named Holden wakes up from a coma. But things aren’t what they seem. He has special abilities that launch him into the middle of a complex conspiracy. He will need to figure out why he was in the coma, and what happens now in this changed world. If you want to watch the Beyond live stream when the series starts, here is your complete guide.
Watch Beyond Online with Sling TV
Sling TV is our top choice for cord cutters. It is reliable, easy to use, and affordable. Freefom is part of Sling TV’s basic Orange package, one of two options. This way, you can easily watch Beyond streaming when it premiers.
Sling Orange starts at $20 per month. There are no contracts, so you can cancel at any time.
Plus, you get a lot more with Sling TV, too. Other networks include:
- Cartoon Network
- BBC America
And so much more. The transition from cable to streaming television will be practically seamless.
All of the channels are live streaming, so you can watch Beyond full episodes right when they air. There is also on demand content for many channels.
It is available on tons of streaming devices. You can watch right on your computer or smart phone either at home or on the go. Or watch with Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, Xbox, and more. They even offer special deals on free or discounted players, like Roku or Apple TV, so check those out for more information.
There is also a special right now, as we’re writing this, for T-Mobile customers. You can get 30% off the Best of Live TV base package, which works out to only $14 per month. The pricing is good for up to one year and there is still no contract, so you can cancel any time. Also, with your T-Mobile account you can use their Binge On feature and stream Beyond and all of your favorite shows without impacting your data plan.
And start out with a FREE 7-day Trial of Sling TV to watch Beyond online free and see what you think!
Watch Beyond Full Episodes on DirecTV Now
The new kid on the block is DirecTV Now, a brand new service hot off the presses. It also includes Freeform in one of its packages, so you will be able to access Beyond streaming live.
DirecTV Now does start at a higher price point that its competitors. The basic package is $35 per month and they offer a 7-day free trial. It is also pretty new, so they are still adding devices and features to the product.
One benefit to DirecTV Now is a grid guide similar to what people are familiar with on cable or satellite services. This makes it an easy switch to streaming TV.
They also don’t have any mobile restriction, like you’ll see with PlayStation Vue. This way, you can still watch the Beyond live stream on the go.
Stream Beyond Live on PlayStation Vue
PlayStation Vue, the other competition to Sling TV and DirecTV Now, also allows you to watch the Beyond live stream on Freeform.
Vue starts as low as $29.99 per month, or $39.99 in markets that offer live local channels. There are only a few cities that offer this option, including Chicago, New York, and LA, but it is a nice added value.
You can stream Beyond on PlayStation Vue with a variety of players. It works with PS3/PS4 consoles, Apple and Android mobile devices, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, and Chromecast. There is no Apple TV support at this time.
But, it is important that you’re aware of a significant difference between Vue and the other streaming service. Your account is tied to your home location, so streaming on the go is limited. Even with the mobile apps, you won’t be able to access most streaming content.
Is Beyond on Hulu?
Not only will Beyond stream on Hulu, Freeform is doing something highly unconventional with this show. The first season will be released – in its entirety– on the date of its premiere. It will be accessible on several digital platforms including the Freeform app and website as well as Hulu.
This will give fans of the television binge watch one more outlet to stream Beyond full episodes live in one fell swoop.
Hulu is great for a lot of reasons. It is a good choice for fans who want to watch current shows on demand rather than live as they air. It partners with multiple networks, including ABC, NBC, and FOX, and several pay TV channels. There is a huge library of both current and past TV shows. And, it works with just about any device on the market.
It is only $7.99 per month with limited commercial interruptions. Or, you can pay $11.99 per month for the ad-free version.
Try Hulu with a FREE 7-Day Trial and stream the complete season of Beyond online free.
Is Beyond on Amazon Prime or Netflix?
Since Freeform is doing something a little different with this one, the need to wait for the show to be on Netflix or Amazon Prime to watch the complete series is kind of negated. That said, most of Freeform’s shows do end up on these services after a time, so we expect that you’ll be able to watch Beyond streaming on either site in the future.
