every Friday8pm ET/PT

New episodes of RuPaul's Drag Race season 14 air every Friday at 8pm ET/PT on VH1, having premiered on January 7.

You can also watch episodes live and on catchup using the VH1 online platform, but you’ll need to log in with your cable details to do so.

Watch RuPaul's Drag Race season 14 without cable

If you don't have VH1 on cable, you can still tune in by getting access to the channel via an over-the-top streaming service. 

An excellent and very affordable option is Sling TV, which offers VH1 as part of both its Blue package and its Orange package, each of which also include loads of other great channels, such as TNT, USA Network, NFL Network and Nick Jr.

They cost $35 a month each, but Sling is currently offering new subscribers a 3-day FREE trial.

Another over-the-top streaming service that includes VH1 is FuboTV. And, better still, it also offers a FREE 7-day FuboTV trial

The OTT streamer is a much more comprehensive cable replacement, and carries more than 100 channels including Fox, CBS and ESPN, for $64.99 a month.

Outside of the US? Simply grab a VPN and follow our guide above to stream RuPaul just like you would at home.

Fans in Canada can tune in at the same time, with new episodes of RuPaul's Drag race season 14 airing on Crave and OUTtv at 8pm ET/PT each Friday.

If you don't have cable, you’ll want to look at the services' in-house streaming alternatives.

You can subscribe to Crave for CA$9.99 a month (plus tax), or £19.99 per month for a much better service, with new episodes going online as soon as they've finished airing on linear TV - so around 9.30pm ET/PT. New subscribers get a 7-day FREE trial too!

The same applies for LGBTQ+ programming focused streaming service OUTtvGo, where a subscription costs CA$3.99 a month, though you can save money by committing to a $39.99 annual subscription, or a $21.99 bi-annual one.

Not in Canada right now? To avoid missing out on Ru's latest season, download a VPN as per our guide above.
