      You’re so welcome! My kiddos love it each year too!

  2. Dave

    Does this cost any money ?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      It does, but you need a TV provider to watch. You don’t need cable. You can watch Freeform on any of the following streaming services: Hulu + Live TV, Sling TV, Vidgo, fuboTV, DIRECTV Stream, and YouTube TV.
