Is there anything more American than a road trip? TBS is a station for the people and by the people where the comedies are mostly cookie cutter and the action isn’t much better. But every now and again a show like The Detour emerges where the best of all worlds combine. A smart comedy about an American road trip that blends the traditional family sitcom with a dash of Family Vacation and you’ve got The Detour.

There are a few different ways to watch The Detour online. TBS is the station of record in this case so let’s go through some of the ways you’ll be able to stream The Detour online for free.

Watch The Detour Live with Sling TV

Sling TV is a service you may not have heard of yet. To summarize you simply pay twenty dollars per month for an app that gets you several cable channels you won’t find outside of a traditional cable package. TBS is one of them but AMC, ESPN and HGTV are also on Sling TV.

The other cool thing is you can watch The Detour live on Sling.  Head over there now to check it out and sign up for the free seven day trial.

Watch The Detour Online with the Official TBS Appwatch-the-detour-online-free

TBS does have an app that includes all of their latest programming online including The Detour. You can download it for Android, Apple devices etc but the main catch is that you’ll need a login from your cable provider to get access to anything. This isn’t great for those so-called cord cutters out there but if you happen to already have a cable subscription or you can bum a password and login from your parents or something, you can stream The Detour for free anytime, anywhere.

Is The Detour on Netflix or Hulu?

Netflix has a few TBS series on their streaming service but since The Detour is so new, it’s not on there right now. In fact, most aren’t on there so you probably won’t see The Detour on Netflix in the immediate future.

Hulu and TBS don’t have a deal at the moment so The Detour is not currently on Hulu.
