The Best Places to Watch The Bachelor Online
The Bachelor is going strong with its 23rd season aired in January 2019. If you live in the US and have ABC, you can watch all the latest episodes. But if you don’t have cable network or live outside of the US, you may struggle to keep up with the show.
If you want to watch The Bachelor online, you will have to find a streaming service that supports it. But if you are not living in the United States, there’s a big chance that not even a streaming service can help. In such a case, the best thing you can do is to use Virtual Private Network (VPN) to bypass the restriction of ABC’s streaming network.
In this article, we will look at the online streaming services you can use to watch The Bachelor. Also, we will explain how to set up a VPN and watch The Bachelor directly using ABC’s stream.
Watching The Bachelor Online Using a Streaming Service
Most US networks like NBC are available on all cheap streaming services, but for some reason, many streaming big shots are missing ABC. These are the services you can use to watch The Bachelor online:
YouTube’s live television stream costs $40/month and offers more than 70 channels, with one of them being ABC. Using this service, you can watch The Bachelor simultaneously with cable network users.
If you just want to try it out or plan to watch one particular episode of the show, you can sign up for a free five-day trial. After that, you may decide if you want to keep up with the subscription.
Hulu is one of the most popular and reliable streaming services with over 60 networks. You can watch all the episodes of The Bachelor that you’ve missed, and new ones are added a day after they air. If you pay-up for a live add-on, you can watch the episodes at the time of airing, too.
Non-live Hulu costs between $6-$11/month (depending on ad length that you choose), and live one is $45/month. Like with YouTube TV, there is a five-day trial. So, if watching an episode of The Bachelor is a one-time thing, you can sign up for a trial and watch that episode for free.
If you are a PlayStation owner and The Bachelor fan at the same time, the best way to watch The Bachelor online is via PlayStation Vue. Before you decide to purchase the service check if you can stream ABC in your location. With PlayStation Vue you can watch around 50 channels, and it costs $45/month after a free five-day trial.
Watching The Bachelor Online Using VPN
ABC GO is ABC’s online streaming service that you can use to watch The Bachelor online. Unfortunately, ABC GO is using software that can track your location. If you are living outside of the US, this software will block you from using the streaming service.
You can bypass this by masking your IP address to appear as US-based. This way you can trick the software into thinking that you are a user that resides in the United States. Once you mask your IP, you will be able to access the ABC GO and stream that latest episode.
To do this, you will have to:
- Find an online VPN that has good performing servers in the US.
- Set up the VPN and make it connect to a US server. This way your real IP address will be hidden, and the US-based address will appear instead.
- Go to the ABC GO The Bachelor stream.
- You will be able to watch the latest episode.
Once the latest episode of The Bachelor airs on ABC, you will be able to stream it for one week until the latest episode replaces it.
Best VPNs to Hide IP From ABC GO
To stream ABC Go, you’ll have to find a VPN that:
- Is US-based.
- Provides high-speed connection and unlimited bandwidth – you are streaming a show, so both are essential.
- Offers 256-encryption, no-log policy, and automatic kill-switch.
- Protects against all personal information and DNS leaks.
Some of the VPNs that tick these boxes and work well with ABC GO are:
The Final Rose
Like the lucky girl who gets the final rose, with these methods you will be able to keep up with all the latest episodes of The Bachelor. Even if you don’t have a cable network or you live outside of the US.

By applying the methods explained in this article, you should have a high-quality and stress-free experience watching your favorite show.
