This guide will quickly show you all your options for streaming Season 1 through Season 3, including options to watch most episodes of Animal Kingdom for free. I have used a number of these services since I cut the cord a few years back.
When does Animal Kingdom Season 4 begin?
How to watch Animal Kingdom Season 1 through Season 3 free
Amazon Prime Video members can now stream all episodes of Animal Kingdom from Season 1 and Season 2.
Season 3 of Animal Kingdom will beadded to Amazon Prime on April 28.
If you don’t have a subscription to Amazon Prime, you can try one free for a month. That should give you plenty of time to binge watch both seasons of Animal Kingdom without paying a dime. If you don’t like all the benefits of Amazon Prime during your 30 day trial, you can cancel before it’s over.
Then you can choose a live TV streaming service and use another free trial to decide how to live stream and record Season 3 of Animal Kingdom.
Watch Animal Kingdom Season 4 on Hulu with Live TV
Hulu with Live TV is a solid option to stream Animal Kingdom live as each episode of Season 4 airs.
TNT is among 65+ channels offered by Hulu’s live streaming service. You’ll get local ABC, NBC and FOX stations in most parts of the U.S.
There’s A&E, HGTV, ESPN, CNN and Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports 2 and 50 hours of Cloud DVR. So you can always record episodes of Animal Kingdom and see if Smurf eventually regains control of the family on your own time.
If you want access to apps that require you to sign in to some kind of pay-TV provider, a Hulu with Live TV account can help.
Subscribers can use their Hulu with Live TV account to sign in to about 38 TV Everywhere apps. Some of these apps like FXNow offer multiple live streams to channels that are not within your Hulu with Live TV lineup. So it’s like getting extra channels for free. You won’t get access to the TNT app, but with on-demand options and DVR options, you’ll have ways to catch up on episodes.
Hulu with Live TV works on most major streaming devices like Roku, Apple TV, Fire TV and Fire Stick, and gaming consoles like Xbox One and Xbox 360.
Hulu with Live TV is also ideal if you want to watch a show like Animal Kingdom on your iPhone or Android smartphone. The live streaming service lets you watch up to two streams simultaneously, including one outside your home.
As part of your subscription and free trial, you’ll get unrestricted access to Hulu’s massive on-demand library that people usually pay $5.99 per month for. That includes Hulu Originals like “The Path” and “The Handmaid’s Tale.” So a subscription really packs in a lot of value when compared to other live TV streaming services.
You can look at Hulu’s channel lineup before deciding whether to sign up.
Watch Animal Kingdom Season 4 live on fuboTV
fuboTV is the newest option to watch Season 4 of Animal Kingdom as it airs on TNT. The entry-level fubo subscription has 110+ channels.
fuboTV focuses on sports coverage, and it’s the first live TV streaming service to show select sporting events like MLB baseball and soccer in 4K HDR.
A&E, Hallmark Channel, HGTV, TNT, TBS and CNN are among the non-sports channels that you’re used to having with a cable or satellite TV subscription.
There’s coverage for 80 percent of regional sports networks nationwide along with Big Ten Network, FS1, and FS2. You can look over the channel lineup to see what regional sports networks and local NBC, FOX and CBS stations are offered in your area.
fuboTV subscribers can use their account to activate a few dozen apps on their Roku or Fire TV. A subscription comes with 30 hours of Cloud DVR. And you get “Look back”, an on-demand service that has all games that aired in the last 72 hours.
So, if you need your fix of the Cote family and some MLB games, fuboTV is a pretty solid choice. The service works with Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV and Android TV devices. You can watch live on an Android smartphone, PC or iPhone too. New customers can check out fuboTV free for a week.

Sling TV will give you a discounted or free streaming device if you prepay for a brief subscription.
Is Animal Kingdom on Netflix?
No. Amazon snagged the exclusive rights to stream Animal Kingdom before Season 2 aired on TNT. And it was a smart move for them considering that Smurf and gang have become a popular TV staple.
Can I watch Season 3 on the TNT app?
Not at the moment. TNT has now sold the rights to Amazon, so your only option to watch old episodes of Animal Kingdom right now is through Amazon Prime Video. Try Amazon Prime free for 30 days.
So that’s the whole rundown of how to live stream Animal Kingdom without cable. Your two best options for watching Season 4 are Hulu with Live TV for its overall value.
Sling TV is your best budget option. You can try out Sling Orange free for 7 days. Just cancel your free trial online before it ends if either service isn’t for you.
