Watch ‘The Good Place’ online (free options)


The Good Place is a really funny tv show starring Ted Danson (who I've always thought was a bit of a dreamboat) . If you're looking to watch it online for free then here are a few options you can try out (we checked these as recently as October 2020):

Netflix UK free trial + free VPN

All 4 seasons of The Good Place (including the new season 4 episodes) are available on Netflix UK, and even if you're based in the USA (or anywhere for that matter), you can very easily access The Good Place through Netflix, for free, with the use of a VPN. Here's how:

  1. Get yourself a free VPN – we recommend ExpressVPN, because you get a chunky 30 days free (you can cancel before the trial ends so you don’t pay).
  2. Set your location to UK within the ExpressVPN dashboard, then head to Netflix. You should be redirected to the UK version of Netflix, if not then you might need to start a new free trial with different details (it's 30 days free again with Netflix, plus it's super easy to cancel)
  3. Watch all 4 seasons within the 30 day period, cancel both your trials then that’s it! You just watched The Good Place for free. Well done you, Mr Danson would be proud.

The folks over at YouTubeTV have a bunch of NBC shows available to stream on their platform, which is of course very nice of them. However, when I used YouTubeTV, I actually found it really hard to cancel the free trial. So what I realized is that the best way to use the YouTubeTV free trial is with a VPN. Luckily, you can use a VPN for free too (during a free trial period). So far you might be thinking, "all I want is to watch 'The Good Place' online for free!". Well, fret not. Here are the steps you have to take to get started:

  1. Get yourself set up with a free VPN. We usually use ExpressVPN for this because they have a nice chunky 30 day free trial. Just make sure you cancel before the 30 days is up.
  2. Once you're set up with the VPN, head over to the The Good Place page on YouTubeTV and get started with the free trial.
  3. Watch as much of The Good Place as you can within the free trial period (this will be at least 7 days long)
  4. Remember to cancel both your VPN and your YouTubeTV subscription before the trials are over!
