Watch Grimm Online: Live Stream & On-Demand Guide

Are you worried you won't be able to watch Grimm if you cut cable? Worry no more. Here's how you can watch Grimm online; no subscriptions neccessary!

The final season of Grimm is premiering January 6, 2017 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.

Grimm is a hit police/fantasy drama from NBC that seems to be a fairly standard police procedural on the surface, but it’s set in a fairytale world where the characters from Grimm’s fairy tales are real-life. Homicide investigator Nick Burkhardt is charged with keeping a balance between the real world and the fantasy world, but he’ll need some help along the way. If you want to watch Grimm online there are options available; here’s what you need to do.


Get Grimm Anywhere with DIRECTV NOW

Best Choice
$40 - $75
64 - 99

There is good news if you are trying to go cable-free! There is a new streaming service called DIRECTV NOW, and you don’t even need a contract or dish to use it!

Watch Grimm Online Free With Amazon Prime


If you want to watch the latest episodes of NBC’s Grimm online, Amazon Prime’s Instant Video is the perfect way to do that. Amazon has the entire first four seasons available at no additional charge, but episodes beyond Season 4 will need to be purchased individually.

Amazon Instant Video (review) offers customers a very large library of TV and movie streaming, and it’s a part of the overall Amazon Prime package. Amazon Prime is just a little more than $8 a month and has great benefits like free two-day shipping on almost any Amazon purchase, streaming TV, streaming music, unlimited photo storage, and more.

Amazon has a great promotion running right now where new customers can try out the service and enjoy full benefits completely free for 30 days — we recommend signing up for it so you can watch Grimm online free for a month!


Grimm Episodes Are Available Through Hulu

Also Great
$39.99 - $43.99

Hulu subscribers get not just Grimm streaming as part of their available options, but hundreds of other current and past TV shows as well. That’s what makes Hulu one of the most popular streaming services in the US today.

Customers can watch Grimm online just a day after the show airs on cable, and five episodes are available at any given time. Hulu has a $7.99 a month version that includes a few commercials, and an ad-free version for just $4 more.

You can read our Hulu review here, and take advantage of the 7-day free trial to see if it’s right for you and watch Grimm online free for a week in the process.


Grimm Live Streaming with PlayStation Vue Service

Also Great
$44.99 - $79.99
47 - 72

PlayStation Vue is another live streaming TV option that has a good range of cable networks available nationwide. Grimm airs on NBC though, which is available live in most cities, although some will still have to wait for next-day on-demand.

A Vue subscription costs just under $30 a month, and it now works on most streaming devices, including your PlayStation consoles and computers.

One important thing to know about Vue is that you can only watch most shows on your home network. That doesn’t mean the whole service is no good for cable cutters, but it’s something to factor in if you’re a big mobile watcher.

Grimm Streaming Directly Over the Air at No Charge

Grimm has the advantage of being broadcast on a major local network, meaning you can actually watch it without a cable package and without Internet. All you need is an HD antenna (with good reception of course), and you’ll get free HD television, meaning you can have a Grimm live stream whenever it airs. Even better is that you can add a DVR, so you can record, pause, and rewind live TV just like the fancy cable packages. If you have an HD antenna (the Mohu Leaf is our winner in this category), just use a DVR like the Tablo which was created just for over-the-air TV.
