How To See Charles Unmasked On 'PLL' Without A TV

Pretty Little Liars fans are about to get their happy ending (maybe), as everything that we all ever hoped and dreamed about (probably) is set to be revealed on the Season 6A finale. Things I’m hoping to cross off my list? Charles’ identity, Ali’s attempted murderer, the identity of Black Widow, and more. I myself pay for cable because 1) RCN owns my life and 2) I watch entirely too much television to ever, ever give it up. Consider it my only vice, besides light, slightly dry reds. But for those of you who don’t have cable but still need to see the conclusion to the “Summer of Answers” (as well you should), let’s look at your options. How can you stream Pretty Little Liars' summer finale?

Just to recap, this half of a season (can you believe it’s only a half?) has taken us on one hell of a ride. Charles DiLaurentis, who turned out to be the older brother of Jason and Ali, locked the Liars in a secret underground lair. Charles was locked up in the mental institution Radley as a kid, with only Jessica DiLaurentis to care about him. We don’t know why he hates the Liars so, but we know that he is out for blood (literally and metaphorically). What don’t we know? WHO HE IS. That is all set to be revealed very soon, and that’s why, if you don’t have a TV, you have to figure out a way to see Pretty Little Liars. You should also check out Bustle's podcast Taking This One To The Grave for one last shot at Charles theories before all is revealed.

One obvious way to watch Pretty Little Liars online is the ABC Family website, which offers live streaming services to anyone who has a cable provider. You just create an account, pop in your information for your cable provider, and bam — you’re in. No spoilers for you, because you’re discovering Charles’ actual identity with the rest of us television-havers.

If you aren’t watching the show live (though I can't imagine why not), the ABC Family website can help you out as well. Each new episode of Pretty Little Liars is posted there on Wednesday mornings. New episodes are also released on HuluPlus on Wednesday mornings, if you prefer to stream it there. Just remember to stay off Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, and Instagram from Tuesday night to the morning, because you’re bound to be spoiled. Actually, you should probably wear earplugs, too. You can never be too careful, you know?

If you don’t have a cable provider, there are a multitude of other live streaming websites that you can use, but most of them are kind of wonky, so I really can’t endorse using them here. That’s kind of a last ditch effort kind of thing. No one can attest if they’ll be safe for your computer/Internet connection.

If you don’t have a television or cable and have to see the Pretty Little Liars 6A finale live, my recommendation would be to make friends with a fan with a television or cable provider login they're willing to share — and fast. This is one episode that none of us are going to want to miss. Look out, Charles. We’re coming for you! Want to know who total PLL newbies think Charles is?
