For those of you who haven’t started watching it yet, do us a favor and immediately go watch the premiere of The Blacklist online via one of the services below. One of two things will happen. You’ll either immediately realize the show isn’t for you and you will have only wasted about an hour of your life.
Or… you’ll end up in a dark vortex of binge watching insanity where you’ll stream The Blacklist online for three days straight until you’re just about caught up with the live television broadcast. Which will quickly reveal itself as not enough Blacklist in your life.
Alright, there might be a middle ground in there somewhere, but we’re just not sure anyone we know has found it.
For those less familiar with The Blacklist, it follows Raymond “Red” Reddington as he turns himself in to the FBI, and refuses to speak to anyone but Elizabeth Keen, a newer FBI agent acting as a profiler. Through her, Reddington assists in the capture or killing of countless notorious criminals. But the whole series leaves you wondering, “Is Red acting only in his selfish best interest?” The Blacklist plays with your mind quite frequently, as after most episodes you’ll wonder truly how this all will end. Regardless, it has been an NBC smash hit and we highly recommend streaming The Blacklist when you get a chance.
Here are the services that can help you watch The Blacklist online:
Update 10/15/2015: We updated the below guide on how to watch The Blacklist online with some fall season 2015 updates.
Is The Blacklist on Netflix?
Good news. The first and second seasons of The Blacklist is on Netflix and available for immediate streaming. This should give you a healthy dose of the show if you’re curious and hoping to dive in without subscribing to other services or before paying for individual episodes.
The Blacklist on Hulu
Currently, the five most recent episodes of The Blacklist are streaming on Hulu. Great option for those of you who have just fallen a tad behind in your viewing of the series. We don’t recommend starting in the middle of a season with The Blacklist as the show’s linear plot line, while broken down somewhat in individual episodes, might lead to some confusion.
Watch Blacklist Live with Sling TV
NBC shows are now on Sling and that include Blacklist! Sling is a cable alternative that includes networks such as USA, AMC and TBS among many others for a low price and doesn’t require a commitment. Head over there now to check it out and sign up for the free seven day trial.
Stream The Blacklist on Amazon Instant Video
While not free, if you’re missing a few episodes from your streaming of The Blacklist, especially the most recent season, you can purchase individual episodes on Amazon. No word yet as to whether or not Amazon plans on offering The Blacklist to Prime subscribers, but we’ll keep you posted.
Google Play, iTunes
Similar to Amazon Instant Video, you can also currently purchase individual episodes of The Blacklist from Google Play and iTunes. Full seasons are also available for purchase, but for now, with the first season on Netflix, a subscription would still be cheaper than buying the entire season from either of these services.
More of a traditional type? Prefer your content on a disc still with special features, deleted scenes, interviews and more? Great news, The Blacklist is available on DVD and is loaded with tons of fun extras for the hardcore fans.
