How To Watch The Real Housewives Of Orange County (With Or Without Cable)

If you want to watch drunk people screaming at each other over dinner, you no longer have to head home for the holidays — or pay for cable. Because "The Real Housewives of Orange County" Season 17 will be available to stream. Meaning you can watch Tamra Judge's triumphant return to TV any time — and as many times — as you like.

Season 17 is gearing up to be every bit as drunken, debauched, catty, catastrophic, sloppy, and slappy as the previous 16, judging by the sneak peek trailer. "I'm back, b****es!" Judge declares before admitting to everyone that something is hidden in her... ahem... backside — you'll have to tune in to discover more! And, even though Vicki Gunvalson won't be returning to "RHOC" for the new season — aside from a "surprise" cameo — you can rewatch the OG complaining about her depleted love tank over and over again, as all the seasons from 2006 onwards are now available for your streaming pleasure.

According to Bravo, Judge is ready to reclaim her orange "after she was last seen in a bush." And she's dragging her friend Jennifer Pedranti along for the ride as the two take on the veterans, Shannon Storms Beador, Heather Dubrow, Gina Kirschenheiter, and Emily Simpson. So whether you're one of the 55.1 million people who are estimated to have cut the cord, per Zippia, or the 80% who have remained loyal, we've got the 411 on how to watch "The Real Housewives of Orange County" — with or without cable.

Peacock is your top Housewives stop

Peacock will be every "Real Housewives of Orange County" fan's best new friend. The NBC streaming offshoot is the new go-to for all Real Housewives content, as they have the back catalog for all of the Bravo franchises. According to Peacock, each of the 16 past seasons of "RHOC" is already available to stream. "They may live in the lap of luxury, but life isn't always perfect for the women who reside in one of the wealthiest enclaves of the U.S.," the website declares.

Each episode of Season 17 will be available the day after it runs on Bravo. The season premiere is June 7 at 8 pm ET/PT. Therefore you can stream on Peacock from June 8 onwards. So, how much Real Housewife do you get for your buck? In preparation for the upcoming new season, Peacock has a limited-time offer for a year's subscription to the service for $19.99. That's all the Housewives you can handle for under 20 bucks — in High Definition, no less.

Once you've paid for your subscription, you can access Peacock on all mobile devices, laptops, desktops, and smart TVs. If you want to avoid blowing $20, you can buy episodes of the show in standard definition via Prime Video or VUDU for $1.99 a pop. Once again, both are viewable on all devices and smart TVs.

Or you can stay old school

Never fear if you can't bring yourself to cut the cable. You can still get your "Real Housewives of Orange County" fix by tuning in weekly to Bravo, the old-fashioned way. "After a two-year break, Tamra Judge is back with a new perspective and is ready to repair a few broken friendships," the show's press release promises. "Tamra comes in hot, and her reconciliation with Shannon does not go as planned. Tamra is holding everyone accountable, especially her friend Jennifer, but when the narrative doesn't add up, it leads to some explosive confrontations," they continue. So, no change there, then.

Despite Bravo fans insisting they're totally over the "RHOC" franchise in an exclusive survey, they're still tuning in. Showbuzz Daily notes that Neilson ratings for the Season 16 reunion show revealed that while there was a decline from Season 15, 873,000 viewers still tuned in to watch part one of the scream-fest. And, according to TV Deets, out of all the "Real Housewives" franchises, "RHOCH" was second only to "The Real Housewives of New Jersey."

And Season 17 promises a Housewives crossover first, with one franchise member jumping ship to another. "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" alum Taylor Armstrong will be cropping up in a "friend role" in the OC. "Not only am I returning to #RHOC for season 17, but my girl Taylor Armstrong is joining me along for the ride. Double the trouble coming your way," Tamra announced last August.
