If you’re imbued with entrepreneurial flair and love reality TV, you’ve probably watched some of ABC’s award-winning Shark Tank show. Budding entrepreneurs work to impress a panel of investors — including Mark Cuban, Lori Greiner, Kevin O’Leary and Barbara Corcoran — with business ideas in hopes of securing funding and support. Let’s dive (pun intended) into our guide on where to watch Shark Tank online.

Key Takeaways:

  • You can stream Shark Tank on ABC or CNBC’s websites, but you won’t find all seasons and episodes. Currently, ABC only has five episodes from season 12. 
  • If you’re outside the U.S., you can stream many episodes and seasons for free by using the free trials on Hulu, FuboTV and YouTubeTV by using a VPN.
  • Many VPNs offer a money-back guarantee that can function like a free trial, including our top VPN, ExpressVPN.
  • You can buy full episodes and seasons of Shark Tank on Amazon Prime U.S. or iTunes U.S, but this is the most costly option. Each individual season on Amazon Prime Video costs $19.99.

Shark Tank is admittedly a bit of a tricky beast, but there are definitely options to watch it online. A surefire way to get all seasons and episodes is to buy them on Amazon Prime Video U.S. However, we understand that not everyone wants to break the bank for their viewing pleasure, so we’re also going to explore some ways to watch Shark Tank online for free. 

  • Cloudwards completed a fresh evaluation of the best way to watch episodes of Shark Tank and included step-by-step instructions.

  • No. Unfortunately, Shark Tank is not on Netflix.

  • You can buy individual episodes and seasons of Shark Tank on Amazon Prime Video U.S. They are also available in the iTunes U.S. library.

  • Some episodes and seasons of Shark Tank are on Hulu, FuboTV and YouTubeTV. All of these services have free trials and you will need to use a VPN if you’re not in the U.S.

  • Yes, it does. We found Shark Tank on Amazon Prime U.S., but regional restrictions apply. It is not available on Amazon Prime UK.

Where to Watch Shark Tank Without Cable

Season 13 of Shark Tank will be broadcast on ABC on October 8 at 8 p.m. Eastern Time. Meanwhile, if you want to catch reruns, CNBC regularly airs them. You can find the schedule by visiting the Shark Tank page on CNBC’s website. However, if you’d prefer to stream (or binge watch) Shark Tank, we’ve scoured the web for the best options. 

How to Watch Shark Tank Online Free

All seasons of Shark Tank are available on Amazon Prime Video U.S. You can buy individual episodes for $2.99 and full seasons cost $19.99, making it an expensive option. 

We also found all seasons of Shark Tank on iTunes with the location set to the U.S., but they were unavailable in the UK library. This means there are regional restrictions in place and you will need a VPN to access them if you’re not in those countries. 

You can watch Shark Tank for free on ABC’s website, but not all episodes are available. Likewise with CNBC, which has only a few episodes. Streaming services with free trials are Hulu, FuboTV and YouTube TV. Just bear in mind that not all seasons and episodes are available on any of these platforms. 

If you’re not in the U.S., you need a VPN to access these streaming sites due to geoblocking. This means that certain content is blocked depending on your location. ExpressVPN is our top choice and has a 30-day money-back guarantee. We’re going to show you how to connect to a U.S. server to watch Shark Tank on Hulufrom anywhere. 

  1. Download and Install ExpressVPN

    Once you’ve signed up for a streaming service’s free trial, go to ExpressVPN’s website and download the app for your device and operating system. Next, the installation wizard will guide you to install ExpressVPN.

Stream Shark Tank on Kodi

If you’re unfamiliar with Kodi, it is an open-source media player that allows you to watch TV shows and movies by using add-ons and repositories. Our Kodi guide can help you out if you’re a beginner. We also recommend checking out our best Kodi add-ons guide and best Kodi repositories guide to explore your streaming options. 

Be mindful that, while using Kodi by itself is legal, streaming copyrighted material on it is done through torrents — and this is where it becomes illegal, so you need to use a VPN if you choose to go that route. We have some recommendations for the best VPNs for Kodi if you’d like to learn more on protecting yourself. 

Final Thoughts: Watch Shark Tank Episodes

We hope our guide has helped you weigh up your options for watching Shark Tank online. If you don’t mind spending the money, Amazon Prime Video U.S. is great for full episodes and seasons. If missing some individual episodes or seasons isn’t a problem, a free trial with a streaming service like Hulu paired with ExpressVPN could be the way to go.
