How to Watch Season 13
Fan of Shark Tank can catch every episode of Season 13 live on ABC. Additionally, you will be able to re-watch recent episodes on the ABC website by signing in with your television provider. Season 13 will also be available for streaming on select platforms, like Hulu, Netflix, and Amazon Prime. However, it’ll be dependent on where you’re located, more details are below.
Will it Be on Hulu
Hulu subscribers will be able to stream recent episodes of Shark Tank Season 13 with an active subscription. Assuming it works the same as it did last season, new episodes will be released on Hulu every Saturday, and subscribers will be able to stream the most recent episodes for a limited time.
However, it’s important to note that all of Season 13 likely won’t be available for streaming on Hulu at once. As new episodes air on ABC, old episodes will rotate off Hulu. Typically, the five most recent episodes will be available on Hulu at any time. Despite the limited number of episodes available, Hulu is the best way to stream new episodes of Shark Tank Season 13.
Will it Be on Netflix
Shark Tank Season 13 will likely not be available on Netflix, especially in the US. However, there are some episodes from previous seasons available on Netflix in Canada, India, and other countries. At the time of writing, there are no episodes of Shark Tank on the US version of Netflix.
Will it Be on Amazon Prime Video
We have good news and bad news. The good news is that Shark Tank Season 13 will be available for streaming with Amazon Prime Video. The bad news is that episodes aren’t included with the subscription and you will have to pay $2.99 per episode.
Alternatively, you will be able to purchase the full season once it’s done airing for around $20.
