The Chi is a brand new American drama that started airing on Showtime in early January 2018. The story revolves around a dozen characters living on the South Side of Chicago. While the average day sees kids going to school, prepping for exams and hardworking parents heading to work, yet it is a tough neighbourhood. Living here requires a certain degree of toughness because of the real danger faced by every man, woman and child. One wrong decision can lead to deadly consequences. The Chi attempts to depict the danger and life of what may be one of America’s toughest neighbourhoods. It’s a coming of life tale of sorts as each resident is linked to the other.
If coming of age stories are your thing, then The Chi will undoubtedly tickle your fancy. Below is how you can stream The Chi online.
Watch The Chi Online Using the Official Showtime App or Website
Anyone who wants to live stream The Chi for free should download the Showtime Anytime app for their iOS or Android device. Then just log-into the app with your cable’s subscriber credentials to start streaming. The same goes for the official website with the only difference being that with the official website you can stream via your web browser. However, if you’re not a subscriber, then you should consider signing up for a cord-cutting service like the ones mentioned below.
Watch The Chi Live via DIRECTV NOW
DIRECTV NOW is another cord-cutting service which happens to stream over a hundred live channels. Subscribers can download an app for their respective devices, pay a monthly fee and start streaming right away. However, since the service is owned by AT&T, the added perk is that you don’t incur data charges when using the service. Starting at $35 a month it’s slightly pricier than its competitor (below) and you’ll need to add-on Showtime for an addition $8 a month. That being said you can always boast of being able to stream The Chi on the go!
Live Stream The Chi Online with Sling TV
Sling TV is one of the cord-cutting services we were referring to above. The service streams Showtime in addition to other premium channels like HBO, AMC, Syfy etc. Similar to Sling TV you’ve got to do is download the service’s app for your respective smart device, pay for the first month’s subscription and start streaming. While packages start at just $20 a month if you want to stream ‘The Chi’ make sure that it includes Showtime or you can add it on later. You can also live stream via the service for free by clicking the button below.
Streaming The Chi on Netflix, Hulu and Amazon
Netflix used to have just about every Showtime show. However, after the network recently pullout most shows new ones have not made it to the service. So, don’t expect to be streaming The Chi on Netflix anytime soon.
Hulu will probably have episodes of The Chi available for streaming. However, you may have to pay extra for their programming.
Amazon Prime should have all episodes of The Chi available for download. Though expect to pay a premium for them which would be around $2.99 an episode!
