 How to Watch Bravo Shows Online

Have you ever wondered how you can watch your favorite Bravo shows online? Let’s say you missed this week’s Real Housewives of New Jersey and forgot to set your DVR. What do you do next? Me: probably give my hubby some grief about messing up my meticulously-planned recording schedule because, let’s face it, this somehow was his fault!  As it turns out, you and I (and my marriage) are in luck because we have some great online resources to help get us our Bravo fix!

Bravo itself offers a limited selection of full-length episodes on Bravotv.com. Check here to see what’s currently available. Unfortunately, not all shows are available at any given time and some are a few episodes delayed compared with what’s currently airing. So, this option might not help us out in that DVR fail situation.

Hulu is a great free option. They have a whole page dedicated to Bravo series streams. Here’s what part of that page looks like:

You will, however run into the same problem with episodes not being up to date. However, if you use one of Hulu’s participating providers (Armstrong, BendBroadband, Consolidated Communications, DISH, Grande Communications, Mediacom, Optimum, Suddenlink, or Verizon) it looks like you can connect to that account and watch right away. Doesn’t help out us Comcast subscribers but maybe someday? Now, perhaps you don’t have any cable subscription and you still want to catch your favorite Bravo series. Hulu would be a great way to watch an entire season for free. The catch? Many of the most popular shows are only available in short clips, not full episodes. But, I’d still suggest browsing through their selection!

Now, let’s say you frequent blogs like this (thanks!) and love to stay up to date on episode recaps or have weekly “what-was-Teresa-thinking!?” gossip sessions with your girlfriends. In that case, you’re going to want to be able to find that episode you missed right away. If you’ve gotta have that episode immediately you still have a couple options:

YouTube offers most Bravo programming but you’ll pay for each episode. There are YouTube channels dedicated to all of the Real Housewives, Top Chef, Million Dollar Listing, etc. Each episode is typically $1.99. And, you can watch pretty much any episode from any season. Check out the RHONJ YouTube page for example. This is a great option if you’re on the go and just need to catch up on one or two episodes. It gets pretty expensive to try and watch a whole season that way.

iTunes also offers a majority of Bravo programming. Similarly to YouTube you can pay by the episode. Here’s the RHONJ iTunes page for example. Most are $2.99 each for HD which makes it more expensive than YouTube. So, in the situation we’re talking about where you just want to catch one episode you missed, I’d recommend YouTube unless you’ve got an iTunes gift card burning a hole in your pocket. HOWEVER, this is another option that would work well for the non-Bravo subscriber because if you buy a whole season at once you can save a lot of $$. For instance, the Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 5 pass is $24.99. You can buy this at the beginning of the season and watch each episode as it comes out.

Will Bravo ever making watching shows online easy as HBO has done with their HBO Go app? We sure hope so. We’ll let you know if we hear anything.

    I think it’s ridiculous! I don’t have cable because any show I want to watch is usually posted on the network’s website the following day or two…..Not Bravo. It is so delayed and random…They post a season months after it airs, and posts them out of order and with weeks between episodes. I don’t understand why they do that, but it’s frustrating!!!

      I get where you’re coming from! That’s exactly why we put this guide together. Hopefully you can find what you’re looking for one of these other ways. There’s multiple ways to watch right away if you don’t mind paying a little bit per episode or per full season (YouTube or iTunes). If you’re sticking to free-only I’d suggest Hulu. You should be able to find most shows on there but only some are available in full episodes and you will still have to put up with some delay :(

      I agree! and they expect us to buy their products and be ‘friends’ with them on facebook? really?

        I totally get it, what they do and don’t have online seems so random sometimes! That’s exactly why I decided to put together this resource on other options for where to find Bravo programming online. Because, let’s face it, not watching is not an option! :) I hope this article helps give you some ideas about how to find what you are looking for!

    What happened to the seasons of real housewives being released on dvd for purchase? I’d like to think I can still someday own them all without feeling like I’m out of the cool hip ways to watch tv nowadays. My real housewives collection has come to a very annoying hault. Whats up????? Where are the new dvds??

  • turningthechannel

    I have cable and also have where you can watch the shows online Bravo is the only network that list the show but when you go to watch it only a portion of the show will load….this is on every single show on the bravo network…I think they do this so they can say they list the shows online but are very aware they will not load…they have entire websites that do nothing but talk about how Bravo trys to get over on people I have stopped watching the shows and so have most of my friends and fam
