How To Watch “Grey’s Anatomy” Online In The UK: Season 15 And Past Seasons

Calling all Grey-Sloan Memorial Hospital fans… Grey’s Anatomy Season 15 is back from its mid-season break, and UK fans are probably wondering how and where they can watch Grey’s Anatomy online or streaming on their telly, legally, WITHOUT an expensive Sky/Cable subscription.

If you need a refresher, Grey’s Anatomy is an American medical drama created by Shonda Rhimes, and starring Ellen Pompeo as Dr. Meredith Grey, who works with her friends, colleagues and romantic interests at the fictional Seattle Grace Hospital. To this day, the show is ABC’s highest-rated drama, and has seen success in the UK as well.

With Season 15, Grey’s Anatomy broke the record as being the longest-running prime-time drama on ABC. The new season which premiered on September 27th in the US, came back from its winter break with Episode 9, on January 17 – in the US.

Unfortunately, UK viewers always have to wait a few weeks until the episodes reach us – Season 15 Part 2 will be back on February 6th, 2019.

Here’s how to watch Season 15, as well as catch-up with past seasons.

Where Can I Watch Grey’s Anatomy In The UK – Past And Current Episodes?

In the UK, Grey’s Anatomy normally airs on Sky – but as Cord Cutters, we’re here to talk about your other viewing options – those not involving a full-on Sky (or Virgin, or BT) subscription.

If you’re wondering, Grey’s Anatomy is NOT on Netflix in the UK – though past seasons are available on Netflix in the US. (Learn how to watch American Netflix in the UK.)

These are your major options:

All past seasons (1-14) of Grey’s Anatomy are currently available as box-sets on NOW TV’s Entertainment Pass – so you can catch up on those. Don’t forget you can get a 14-day free trial.

Writer and news editor based in London, I cut the TV cord back in 2014 and never looked back. I watch A LOT of TV, and thankfully I can choose whatever I want to watch without depending on archaic channels.
