Here’s how to watch The Bachelor online — live, on-demand, and even for free — so you don’t miss any of Season 21.
The new season of The Bachelor is now in full gear on ABC. This is the 21st season of the hit reality fix-em-up and get-em-hitched show, featuring a brand new bachelor looking for love.
This year’s lucky stud is Nick Viall, a technology salesman from Milwaukee (with the abs of a pilates instructor). Poor Nick had his heart broken when the woman he proposed to shot him down. But now he’s back on the horse and ready to settle down with one of the 30 bachelorettes who’ll be competing for his affections.
The Bachelor is one of those shows that’s hard to stop watching once you get sucked in. If you won’t be near a TV, you don’t have to worry about missing any cat-fights, back-stabbing, or tender moments. Here are all the ways to watch The Bachelor online.

More Ways To Watch The Bachelor Online — Free, Without Cable
You can also stream The Bachelor for free — but stay away from those scummy “free live TV!!!!” sites. There’s a better way.
You can use Kodi to watch The Bachelor (plus lots of other shows) online for free. What is Kodi? Briefly, it’s a free media player application you can use to stream TV shows and other content from the internet.
One note — whether Kodi is legal is an issue of debate. Yes, the networks frown upon watching their content for free. Hey, I’m not here to judge. But it is highly recommended you use a VPN with Kodi to stay private and secure.
