USA and Syfy original series are difficult to watch if you don’t have cable. They’re not available on streaming services the day after they air, not even on Peacock, which is also owned by the networks’ parent company, NBCUniversal. In an effort to try to get viewers to buy in, Syfy has made the premiere episode of “Chucky” available to watch online for free via YouTube. The episode is accompanied by a behind-the-scenes featurette looking at the pilot through interviews with the cast and crew.
This free episode also happens to be an extended cut, running just over 46 minutes. Many fans have been taking advantage of watching the first episode for free, as the YouTube video had well over 200,000 views in under 24 hours. The comments section also filled up with positive responses from fans, many of whom are praising Don Mancini for honoring the history of Chucky.
To catch all the subsequent episodes of “Chucky,” tune into USA or SyFy every Tuesday night.
