Superman seems to have all the fun. With Smallville and several movies planned for the near future, Supergirl needed her own entertainment vehicle. Perhaps this CBS series will give her the justice she deserves. As ridiculous a premise as Superman is, Supergirl is probably even a bit worse. Supergirl is his cousin. Enough said, right?

But does this modern re-imagining of of a male superhero staple cut the mustard? We won’t know until it debuts later this year. But when it comes you want to be prepared with all of your streaming and online watching options in hand already. Here’s how to watch CBS’s Supergirl online for free.

Is Supergirl on Netflix or Hulu?

Nope. Supergirl is a CBS property which means it won’t hit Netflix, maybe ever. The DVD rental version may drop on Netflix but by the time that happens Netflix may retire that segment of their business.

Is Supergirl on Hulu? Not really, but Hulu does have access to older CBS programs so it may eventually make its way there.. You’ll have to be a Hulu subscriber, of course and there’s no way you won’t have Supergirl spoiled by the time it’s on Hulu.
