Family Guy has been running for 11 seasons, and you currently have two options for watching full episodes online for free. On Netflix, you can watch 9 seasons. On Hulu Plus, all 11 seasons are available, however you have a shorter time frame during which you can watch the episodes for free. We will show you how to join either site for free below:
OPTION 1: Netflix
You will need to set up a Netflix account, which will allow you to start watching full episodes of Family Guy immediately. Setting up an account is free for 30 days, after which you will become a regular paying member for $7.99/month. Follow these steps to sign up for free:
Click here to go to Netflix and sign up for an account. Initially, your account will be free, but you will be charged after 30 days. If you do not want to be charged the monthly rate of $7.99, you can cancel before the trial period is over.
Once you have your account set up, go ahead and sign in. The Netflix site may seem a bit overwhelming at first, since it contains tens of thousands of streaming titles. The quickest way to find Family Guy full episodes is by using the search field (see below).
Family Guy should show up as the top item in your search results. Go ahead and click the title link (not the picture).
You should now be on the main Family Guy page. You can select the season you want to view using the drop-down menu. After that, simply click on the episode you want to watch. The full episode will begin streaming immediately. Best of all, there are no commercials!
OPTION 2: Hulu Plus
Hulu has a free portion of their site, as well as a paid, member’s only area called Hulu Plus. To get the most access to quality content, you will need a Hulu Plus account. The cost is $7.99 per month, but you can join for free using their 1-week free trial. Be aware that unless you cancel your free trial, you will be billed and your membership will convert into a paid monthly subscription.
The Hulu Plus free trial is a bit short for our liking, but on the plus side, they offer full episodes of all 11 seasons of Family Guy.
Watching Family Guy Full Episodes Using Other Mediums:
There are some other sites out there where you can watch episodes for free, but most of them are illegal and you should not use them unless you want your computer to get infected with Malware.
You also have the option to purchase episodes on Amazon or iTunes. The benefit of buying episodes is that you own them forever and can watch them as often as you want. If you are a big fan who wants to own DVDs, then Amazon is your best bet for finding the lowest priced sets.
More on Family Guy:
Since you are on this page, chances are, you have seen Family Guy before. If not, you should know that the show is a bit controversial and viewed as crude by some. Family Guy is truly one of those shows that people either love or hate. There seems to be no middle ground.
The best way to get a feel for whether or not the show will appeal to you is by watching short clips, many of which are available on Youtube. Here are a few you can check out:
Incidentally, the creator of Family Guy, Seth MacFarlene, hosted the 2013 Oscars. Just like the show he created, his Oscar performance was controversial as well. It is all but certain that he will not be invited back, which is a shame.
