A new group of celebrities are taking to the dance floor for a new season of Dancing With the Stars. And this year, the long-running reality competition series has a new home too.
After 30 seasons and 17 years of airing on ABC, Dancing With the Stars has made the move to its new home on Disney+. Here’s what to know about Season 31 of Dancing With the Stars and how to watch the ballroom show online.
Buy Disney+ Subscription $7.99
The new season of Dancing With the Stars premieres on Monday, September 19 with live episodes airing weekly at 8pm ET / 5pm PT.
Episodes will air live on Disney+ and then be available to watch on-demand as replays within an hour after the live stream.
After 30 seasons on ABC, Dancing With the Stars is now only available to watch on Disney+. What that means: you will no longer be able to watch Dancing With the Stars on TV — at least not on traditional cable or network TV.
If you want to watch Dancing With the Stars on TV, you’ll need to sign-up for Disney+ and then watch the show through the Disney+ app on your connected smart TV or favorite streaming device (I.e. Fire TV Stick).
Dancing With the Stars is the first live series to debut on Disney+ and the streaming service is the only place to watch Dancing With the Stars online.
Subscribers to Disney+ will be able to watch Dancing With the Stars live online each week and vote for their favorite stars to stay in the competition. A subscription to Disney+ costs just $7.99 a month, and lets you stream Dancing With the Stars on your laptop, tablet, TV or phone.
You can live stream new episodes of DWTS every Monday evening, or choose to watch the show on-demand at any other time throughout the week.
Fans will be able to vote during the live stream of the show in the U.S. and Canada via disneyplus.com/vote. As in previous seasons, the live viewer votes will be combined with the judges’ scores to determine which couples stay and which ones are in danger of elimination.
Buy Disney+ Subscription $7.99
Unlike some streaming services, like Apple TV+ or Hulu, Disney+ doesn’t offer a free trial or way to watch its shows for free. However, Verizon customers can get Disney+ for free as part of Verizon’s “Disney+ On Us” offer.
Sign up for a Verizon plan here and get six months of Disney+, ESPN+ and Hulu for free. You can use your subscription to watch Dancing With the Stars online free, in addition to streaming a host of other TV shows and movies on the three streaming services.
