New to Netflix: One Day at a Time

New to Netflix: One Day at a Time

A “new oldie” on Netflix. One Day at a Time is the latest original series to drop on Netflix, and it’s already getting tons of great buzz. The Netflix original is a remake of the 1975 version produced by Norman Lear. I think we’re supposed to know who that is. On further research, he is a TV production legend who has been dropping hit shows for decades.

The Netflix series, with its 13 episode first season, is all about a Cuban-American family. Penelope is the matriarch of the family and a former military veteran who is separated from her husband. She’s raising a teenaged daughter, the idealist, and a son, a socially awkward middle-schooler. Adding to the mix is Penelope’s mother, Lydia, who pops up to help out around the house.

How to watch: you can watch online, on your mobile device, on your smart TV, or on your streaming device through the Netflix app. If you don’t have it, or aren’t using your parents’ / sister’s / neighbor’s login, you can sign up for a free trial then roll into a $9.99 per month subscription if you like it.

Award Season Kick Off: Golden Globes

We love TV. So go figure we’re going to watching the Globes on Sunday night. You should too. There are some awesome shows nominated in both drama and comedy categories with great performances across the board. We’re thinking it’s going to be This Is Us in Drama and Atlanta in Comedy. You heard it here first. (Sunday | NBC | 8pm ET)

How to watch: In select markets (basically major cities), you can stream NBC through Sling TV (Blue). If you are in an area that doesn’t get live TV through Sling, your digital antenna should work well.

For the red carpet junkies among us, there are a bunch of ways to stream the red carpet.

StreamSavvy Guide: What to watch January 5, 2017

StreamSavvy’s daily guide for the best TV from January 5, 2017. Stream the Nashville or Blacklist season premiere. Here’s the post with what to watch, why you should check it out, and how to stream it.


The week is finishing up strong with more season premieres, series premieres, and shows picking up with new episodes after the holiday break.

Watch Nashville Online

Season Premiere: Nashville

Nashville returns for its 5th season. This time it’s on CMT though. Not ABC. The CMT home is a perfect fit for the show and will take it back to the roots of country music now that the show was discontinued by the major network.

This season with new show runners promises to be a more thoughtful approach. Instead of frivolous hooks in each episode in the ABC version, the re-vamped Nashville looks to develop the narrative of the story. You can see for yourself in the 2-hour premiere tonight.

Season 5 jumps in where Season 4 left off. Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere) begins the new season as the lone survivor of the plane crash and all the feels that come with that. Lots of buzz around this one. (CMT 9/8c)

How to watch: you can stream the new episode tonight on CMT through Sling TV. You’ll need one of the base packages, either the Orange for $20 per month or Blue package for $25 per month. Once you have a base subscription, you can add the Comedy Extra for $5 per month. It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense that CMT is in the “Comedy” add-on, but that’s where it is.

If you’re cool with waiting or want to watch whenever you want, Nashville will stream on Hulu. With a subscription to Hulu, you will be able to watch tonight’s episode tomorrow night. And for the rest of Season 5, Hulu will be streaming the newest episode 24 hours after it first airs on CMT.

Live stream The Blacklist Season Premiere

The Blacklist Season Premiere

Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader) is back in 2017 with all new episodes beginning tonight on NBC for the Blacklist season premiere. A crime and FBI drama that is one of NBC’s best has had us hooked. We’re excited to watch the Blacklist season premiere tonight. (NBC 10/9c)

How to watch: In select markets (basically major cities), you can stream the Blacklist season premiere on NBC through Sling TV (Blue). If you are in an area that doesn’t get live TV through Sling, your digital antenna should work well.

The show will be available on demand on the NBC app, one of our favorite free streaming apps.

Other Premieres of note tonight

Series Premiere: Ghosts in the Hood
WE 10/9c
Stream on Playstation Vue (all tiers)

Season Premiere: Portlandia
IFC 10/9c
Stream on Sling TV (Orange or Blue) or Playstation Vue (Slim Core+)

How To Watch Shows Online Free

Everyday more TV shows come available online or through apps. Some of the shows are free, and some of the content is paid. If you know where to look and you’re okay waiting a day after live airing to watch TV shows, then you’re in luck. You can watch free TV.

There are always sketchy ways to watch content, like people on Periscope allowing you to “watch” a show on their TV. It happens. If you’re like us, you want a quality watching experience – great shows in HD. But you don’t want to subject your computer to the evils of weird and illegal sites.

To help you out, here are some of our favorite apps and sites to watch TV shows for free online. Something to note, since they are free to watch, for almost all of the sites or apps, you will have to watch commercials…but it’s free. So we can live with it. Happy watching!

  1. NBC. The NBC app is a great place to catch a lot of free TV. There’s a similar selection of free shows nbc.com as well. On nbc.com, the episodes typically come available 24 hours after airing, and the two most recent episodes can be viewed without having cable / satellite credentials.
  2. Crackle. A great place to look for old favorite TV shows, like Seinfeld and Married with Children. However, the one of the things that we love most about Crackle? Their original shows. Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is a legit great show, and not just because it’s free.
  3. PBS. A selection of PBS’s content is available online and through their app. Genuinely quality content comes through the Masterpiece shows, and this is a great place to start a search if you’re looking for something free to watch.
  4. Newsy. As the name would suggest, a go-to spot for free news content. It’s one of the fastest growing video news sources it’s definitely worth scanning through their available videos when you want to catch up on news.
  5. CBS News app. This is one of our favorite news apps out there, and the CBS digital team does a great job of providing a continuous loop of news, covering the biggest stories of the day.
