Premiering on Saturday, June 4 at 9 p.m. ET, The Vet Life is a new Animal Planet show that focuses a trio of veterinarians, Dr. Diarra Blue, Dr. Aubrey Ross, and Dr. Michael Lavigne, as they balance home and family life with all the work of opening a new veterinary practice in Houston, Texas.

Watch The Vet Life Online with PlayStation Vue

Best Choice
$44.99 - $79.99
47 - 72

If you want to watch The Vet Life online, PlayStation Vue is your best bet. Vue is an online streaming service that actually offers live viewing of certain cable channels, with Animal Planet included in the base package. Vue service is available nationwide, but there’s an added bonus for people who live in seven major cities (Chicago, New York, Dallas, Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Philadelphia). In most cities, local channels are available with PlayStation Vue, but only on-demand the next day. In those seven cities, though, local channels are all available live!

PlayStation Vue service starts as low as $29.99 a month. You will need either a PS3 or PS4, an iPad, Amazon Fire TV devices, or a Chromecast-enabled device to watch, but you can stream content on almost any of these devices live. One of the biggest things to know with using PlayStation Vue is that you really can’t watch outside your home. You can only watch on your home network. PlayStation Vue is still a great option to watch The Vet Life online, though, because as long as you tune in at the right time, you’ve got The Vet Life live stream as it happens.


Buy The Vet Life Full Episodes

If watching with Playstation Vue isn’t an option, there is one other way to watch The Vet Life online, and that’s to purchase single episodes. In most cases, the day after they air, The Vet Life full episodes are available on Amazon Instant Video, Vudu, iTunes, or other similar services. Remember that purchasing a single episode at a time is usually more expensive than subscription streaming services, and if you do go this route, you’d be better off buying a season pass.
