Is Chicago Fire on Netflix or Hulu?

Hulu, on the other hand has access to at least the newest season of Chicago Fire. Be sure to watch them quickly, though because you can’t go back to previous seasons. If you’re already a Hulu subscriber this is a simple way to stream Chicago Fire for free (well, in addition to your Hulu premium fee). You’ll have to watch some commercials if you haven’t sprung for the ultra premium ad free version of Hulu but it might be worth it to you for Chicago Fire, uninterrupted.
