But for fans who either miss a Sunday or Monday night show, want to see an episode again, or have a scheduling conflict with too many shows they're trying to watch, Hulu is here to save the day!

Indeed, fans can stream new episodes of American Idol on the platform the next day following their premiere, which is pretty standard. For example, NBC shows are typically available to stream on Peacock the next day.

Hulu is now part of Disney Plus.

The Hulu connection makes sense when you consider that Disney owns ABC (and a million other things), and Disney Plus and Hulu recently merged to form one streaming service.

So, now you can bundle Disney Plus and Hulu together and pay one monthly fee, getting all of the content you love from both platforms in one place.

Now, the only thing left to do is to avoid any spoilers for how the performances went, or who got voted out, until you can stream American Idol on Hulu the next day!
