NBC’s new TV season kicks off tonight after the season finale of America’s Got Talent with the season two premiere of the hilarious comedy The Good Place, starring Kristen Bell and Ted Danson. The first season ended with a cliff-hanger that no one saw coming, so you’ll want to watch the new episode live. The season premiere airs at 10:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday, September 20. Beginning on Thursday, September 28, new episodes will air at 8:30 p.m. ET. If you don’t have access to a television or cable, here are instructions on how you can live stream online or on a mobile device.

All options are for U.S. users only.

Those with a cable subscription can watch via NBC.com or the NBC app, but if you have cut the cable cord — or are looking to do so — you can watch via a free trial of one of the following over-the-top streaming services if you’re in a select market:

DirecTV Now: Includes NBC live in the most markets.

FuboTV: The cheapest short-term option if you keep it beyond your free trial.

Sling TV: The cheapest long-term option if you keep it beyond your free trial.

Every one of these options includes a free trial, so you can try them out if you’re not sure what you want. You can sign up via the above links, or you can read on for a more thorough breakdown of how to sign up to watch NBC:
