If you’re a guy, like me, you’re probably sick of hearing all of the ladies in your office, let alone your wife go on and on about ABC’s ‘The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette”. But maybe there’s a way she could enjoy the show on her own, without interrupting your MLB game, right? There are several ways to watch both the Bachelor and The Bachelorette online. ABC has given you a few different ways to stream the show. Here are the most popular:
Stream The Bachelor and The Bachelorette live on Sling TV
Great news Bachelor nation, you can stream ‘The Bachelor’ and ‘The Bachelorette’ live with a Sling TV login.

Watch The Bachelor and Bachelorette Live on DIRECTV NOW
Another new non-cable streaming service comes to you from what you probably think of as a cable (satellite) company. DIRECTV NOW is like Sling in that you get a ton of channels including ABC live streaming along with tons of other channels as well (see their list for more details).

Is The Bachelor or The Bachelorette on Netflix?
Quick answer on this one: No, neither The Bachelor or The Bachelorette is on Netflix at this time. There are some DVDs for rent on Netflix in the “Best of” category but that’s probably not what you’re looking for. That’s not streaming! Anyway, you won’t get your fix for The Bachelor on Netflix so let’s move on, shall we?
The Bachelor and The Bachelorette is on Hulu
Are you a Hulu Plus member? Of course you are. Well, you’re in luck because Hulu not only has past episodes of The Bachelorette, it has NEW episodes the next day. Miss an episode of The Bachelor?

Stream The Bachelorette or The Bachelor on ABC’s Official Site
Another option is to go to ABC.com and check out their streaming offerings.
