Is Family Guy on Disney Plus in 2022?

Whether you can watch Family Guy online via Disney Plus all depends on what part of the world you’re in. Simply put, Family Guy is available on Disney Plus in some areas but not all. That’s down to licensing agreements and which streaming services have the rights to the popular show, with that changing depending on the country. Family Guy is only available via Disney Plus if you live in one of the countries where Star is included in your Disney Plus subscription. That means countries like the U.K., Australia, and Canada have Family Guy on Disney Plus but the U.S. misses out.

That’s because the way Star works is that it replaces Hulu for those nations meaning they get a very similar experience to Disney Bundle subscribers but with a twist — they get Star content bundled in with their standard Disney Plus subscription while users in the U.S. need to sign up for The Disney Bundle or Hulu to get the extra content. The Star channel adds shows like 24, Atlanta, Scrubs, and — of course — Family Guy. If you’re keen to see the adventures of the Griffin family via Disney Plus, you need to live somewhere other than the U.S. Or you need to know how to use a VPN to get around georestrictions so that you can pretend you are located in one of the countries that has Family Guy. This method does not offer a guaranteed chance of success, however, and it is technically against Disney’s terms and conditions. Your third and final option is to sign up to The Disney Bundle where you get Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ for $14 per month for all three services. It’s a pretty sweet deal if you’re keen to get even more content via Disney+ and you would prefer to pay the same monthly fee all wrapped up neatly every month.

Family Guy internationally is available to stream across the U.K., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and many European countries. Not all countries have all episodes of Family Guy. For instance, some countries such as Australia and New Zealand only have a season or two of the show. In the U.K., almost all episodes are available. One episode from season eight known as Partial Terms of Endearment is not available on the service after it was banned in the U.S. It has been replaced with the two-part special, Something, Something, Something Dark Side which is a Star Wars parody.

Family Guy has never been available solely through Disney Plus in the U.S. and we can’t see that changing any time soon due to Hulu being the home of the show there. It seems like a mature show for being on Disney Plus rather than Hulu which is already closely linked to Disney Plus. There are other ways to watch Family Guy online however if you are located in the U.S. or another country that does not offer Star bundled into Disney Plus.

Other Ways to Watch Family Guy Online

If you are in the U.S., the best way to watch Family Guy online is to sign up for Hulu. A basic Hulu subscription with ads costs $7 per month. Signing up gives you access to all things Family Guy including the latest episodes. Options for a plan include Hulu, Hulu (No Ads), or Hulu+LiveTV. All three plans offer every episode of Family Guy with most new episodes of all shows added the day after they air. The No-Ads plan costs $13 per month but means no worrying about adverts amongst your favorite Family Guy episodes. Alternatively, Hulu+LiveTV is $70 per month but gives you the cord-cutter dream of being able to watch live TV from over 75 channels with no cable required. It also tosses in Disney Plus and ESPN+. If you want to be able to watch Family Guy online the moment it airs, this is the package you need but it’s expensive. For many users, it’s better value to wait a day and watch the latest episode then. Another option is to sign up to YouTube TV. That works out at $65 per month and means you can watch the latest episode of Family Guy live but again, it’s expensive.

The best value way of watching all of Family Guy is to sign up to The Disney Bundle. Signing up for The Disney Bundle costs $14 per month. In exchange, you get access to Disney Plus, Hulu (ad-supported), and ESPN+. Alternatively, you can pay $20 per month to get Hulu (no ads). Whatever you choose, The Disney Bundle is a fantastic value as it gives you all things Disney Plus, Hulu, and a ton of sports and sports documentaries courtesy of ESPN+. There should be something for everyone here. The only way that streaming Family Guy online gets any cheaper is if you have a cable subscription that includes Fox. If you do, you can create a Fox Now account and watch Family Guy within seconds. It’s not free, of course, but it might feel that way if you already have cable.

Finally, if you want to own Family Guy online, it’s always possible to purchase episodes via iTunes or Google Play. These are not free and they often are not the latest episodes but if you are keen to collect a library of past Family Guy episodes and don’t want to rely on a streaming subscription, it’s a good option. You will own these digital copies for as long as the services exist which seems fairly reliable when it comes to Apple and Google.
