Season 11 of RuPaul’s Drag Race premieres in a two-hour episode, on February 28, 2019, from 9 – 11 p.m. ET/PT and 8 – 10 p.m. CT, on the VH1 network. As usual, a new cast of queens gathers to compete for a grand prize of $100,000. RuPaul, along with a panel of judges and celebrity guests, puts the queens through tests and competitions, narrowing the group down to just one winner by the end of the season. For those who are fans of the show and want to watch but don’t have a cable subscription, there are still options. If you don’t have cable or can’t get to a TV, you can watch VH1 live on your computer, phone or streaming device by signing up for one of the following cable-free, live-TV streaming services:
VH1 is included in Philo’s main 43-channel bundle, which is the cheapest among all streaming services if you plan on keeping it long-term. You can sign up for a free 7-day trial right here, and you can then watch the show live on your computer via the Philo website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the Philo app.
If you can’t watch live, Philo also allows you to DVR programs and watch them up to 30 days later. And even if you forget to DVR something, Philo also comes with a 72-hour rewind feature, which allows you to replay any event that has aired in the last three days.
VH1 is included in the “Lifestyle Extra” add-on, which can be added to either the “Sling Orange” or “Sling Blue” channel packages.
