How To Legally Watch Suits Online (TV Series)

We have scoured the web for ways to watch Suits online (the TV show) and have determined Amazon Prime Video (free 30-day trial) is the best solution if you are looking to start from the beginning or catch up on past seasons from the first through the ninth. It is free to stream for existing Prime members or you can sign up for a free month trial for those who haven't yet.

As for the best budget-friendly solution, NBC's newly launched Peacock TV service offers full access to the entire Suits series from the 1st through the 9th season for free although you'll need to make an account and be subject to intrusive video advertising unless you wish to pay for a paid Peacock TV account.

For those who aren't interested in either of the two services recommended above, can opt to buy digital versions of the Suits seasons or episodes through Vudu. This is the least ideal solution of the three as you have to purchase the individual episodes or seasons for up-front fees rather than paying for a flat subscription cost and being able to stream the entirety of Suits seasons 1-9 without any issue.

USA Network has produced a real hit with their TV series titled Suits which initially debuted on June 23rd, 2011. Since then, the legal drama series has racked up millions of fans and has been nominated for several prestigious awards. With 9 completed seasons and a whopping 134 episodes under its belt, USA Network has done a phenomenal job with the riveting legal drama.

Many of you are probably reading this because you were not able to watch Suits live as it aired from the beginning. Fortunately, you aren't out of luck, and there are several ways that you can catch up on the series through reputable and most importantly, legal video content providers on the Internet.

In the remainder of this article, we will cover multiple ways you can watch Suits online without breaking the law (we do not advocate piracy). Some of these methods may allow you to watch Suits online free, but there is usually a catch in that you need a paid Amazon Prime or an existing cable subscription.


Top 3 Streaming Services To Watch Suits Online (Seasons 1-9)

The second method to watch Suits online is easy, but it will require you to spend some money unless you have an Amazon Prime Video membership. Amazon Video offers all the episodes from seasons 1-9 for free streaming with Prime. You can also buy access (without Prime) for $2.99 per HD episode or a full season in HD for $34.99 (season one is $24.99 for HD). If you don't mind settling for standard definition quality, you can get SD episodes for $1.99 each or the full season for $24.99.

For those of you who don't have an Amazon Prime account and haven't had one before, you can always sign up for their free 30-day trial to watch as many Suits episodes as you'd like. If you have enough free time, you may even be able to binge all the available seasons during this month-long period. Just be sure to cancel the trial before the period of 30 days is up so you can avoid any billing charges (unless you wish to become a Prime member which we think is a no-brainer decision).

Peacock TV

A newly launched service from NBCUniversal that offers streaming to hundreds of hit movies, TV shows (such as Suits seasons 1-9), and associated channels. What is cool about this service is that it is entirely free to stream upon making an account, however, you'll be faced with intrusive advertising breaks and banners which is how they can keep the streaming free.

For those who don't want to deal with the advertising, you can purchase a Peacock Premium Plus account for $9.99/month which gives you access to their original programming as well as the removal of most ads. This service has recently replaced the free streaming option for Suits content which used to be possible via the USA Network's native website.

Is Suits Available To Stream On Netflix?

For those of us in the United States, you probably have already found out that Suits is NOT available for streaming on our most popular video streaming service, Netflix. However, it is available on Netflix in some other markets like Canada, the UK, and New Zealand.

Unfortunately, the terms and negotiations of TV networks and the licensing of their content to streaming providers like Netflix are complicated and can change rapidly. As of right now USA Network and Netflix have no licensing deal to offer the ability to stream Suits online for their United States customers, but this could change in the future.

We previously watched Suits on Netflix using a French IP via NordVPN.

However, there is one trick that you can use to stream Suits on Netflix while in the United States that remains legal and falls under a sort of grey area. If you sign up for a service like NordVPN, you can spoof your location to an area where Suits is available to stream as such in the UK or France.

There are other VPN services that could work this way, but NordVPN is our Editor's Choice and hasn't had the issue of being banned by Netflix like many others. We have tested this method and while it used to work, the success of this method is hit or miss, and Netflix does have ways of finding out the use of VPNs and then further restricting geoblocking limitations even while using a VPN.

It is worth noting that there are a few downsides to this approach (should you get it to work):

  1. Slower connection – since you are running through a VPN service, streaming quality likely won't be as good as connecting straight through the to the origin Netflix service. This will depend on variables like your local Internet speeds, the VPN provider you use, and how close your proximity is to the VPN location. In a worst-case, it could result in frequent buffering when attempting to stream Suits at higher resolutions.
  2. Limited availability – Unlike the other streaming solutions listed above, the availability of seasons or episodes may differ depending on the region. In France's case, we could only access Suits seasons 1-5 although the U.K. is supposed to have up to season 7.
  3. The method could disappear overnight – while this method is currently working for us, there is potential for it to stop working without warning either by Netflix finding a way to stop this workaround (less likely). Additionally, the licensing deal between USA and Netflix could come to an end which would cause the series to be removed from the streaming library (more likely). 


Why Do So Many People Want To Watch Suits?

Since its initial release back in June of 2011, the television show has become increasingly popular for a multitude of reasons. Here are some of the most popular reasons why Suits has gained its success:

Brilliant Writing

When I first watched the first episode of the Suits television series, I was instantly hooked. The storyline of a brilliant young college dropout with a photographic memory named Mike Ross (played by Patrick J Adams) being taken under the wing of veteran lawyer Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) does a great job of being both interesting and believable.

Harvey takes a big risk hiring Mike to the law firm after he accidentally stumbles into the job interview while dealing with a botched drug deal. From there, the story takes off on a path of endless cases featuring the legal closers throughout New York City with different twists and turns affecting the show's plot and characters.

Great Casting & Character Development

One of the great components of a riveting TV series is great actors with raw talent mixed with impressive writing allowing for in-depth character development. The cast is spectacular with each member putting on an outstanding performance throughout the series. Some of my favorites besides Mike Ross and Harvey Specter are Jessica Pearson (Gina Torres), Rachel Zane (played by Meghan Markle who is now English royalty), Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman), and Donna Paulsen (Sarah Rafferty)
