The Goldbergs returns for the second half of season nine on Wednesday, January 5, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. This period sitcom is set in an alternate version of the 1980s in a suburban Pennsylvanian town and shows life in the ’80s through the eyes of the Goldbergs’ youngest son, Adam. It is interspersed with Adam’s homemade video documentation of daily life and narrated by an “adult Adam,” voiced by Patton Oswalt. Now in its ninth season, Adam is squarely in his teenage years, with his older siblings facing more adult issues. This article will explain how you can watch The Goldbergs live every week even if you don’t have cable.

Every episode from every season of The Goldbergs is available on Hulu On-Demand. There is even a 30-day Free Trial, which is time to squeeze in quite a few episodes. All episodes of The Goldbergs seasons 1-8 are available to stream now, and new episodes of the current season appear on Hulu the day after they air on ABC. The Hulu on-demand service starts at $$$ per month, but you won’t be charged if you cancel within the trial period. There is no contract required, so it’s possible to cancel at any time. If you decide to keep the service, there is an ad-supported and ad-free plan. I briefly explain both below:
- Hulu with commercials ($6.99): This is the least expensive plan Hulu offers. This will allow you to watch the current and all past seasons of The Goldbergs on-demand. This package also provides access to the entire Hulu library; the on-demand Hulu feature providing various TV shows on network TV, cable, and all the Hulu Originals. There are commercials throughout the shows.
- Hulu – commercial-free ($12.99): This plan provides Hulu on-demand without commercials. (Due to network arrangements, Grey’s Anatomy, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and How To Get Away With Murder will always have commercials)
