Can You Watch Gold Rush On Netflix?

"Gold Rush" is arguably one of the most popular shows to come out of Discovery in quite some time. The reality series, which follows different mining groups digging for gold in unexplored territory, kicked off in 2010 with several family mining operations. They all have the equipment and savvy necessary to strike it rich; it merely comes down to the luck of the draw if they dig in the right spot to find glorious gold.

The show soon became a ratings hit, and it shouldn't have come as a surprise when Discovery was quick to capitalize on the popularity by greenlighting a slew of spinoffs, such as "Gold Rush: White Water," "Freddy Dodge's Mine Rescue," and "Hoffman Family Gold." The show has amassed a sizable fan base, but if you're looking to get into the series yourself, you may wonder how exactly you can hop aboard. It's difficult if you don't have cable, but there's a way to have all of "Gold Rush" at your fingertips.

No, Gold Rush is not available on Netflix

It's only natural to wonder if you can catch up with "Gold Rush" on the preeminent streaming service, Netflix, but sadly, that's not the case. Netflix doesn't have "Gold Rush" available for viewing, so you're going to have to sign up for a different subscription if you want "Gold Rush" readily accessible. Seeing how the show made its mark on Discovery, you can naturally find every episode on Discovery+. Prices for that streaming service start at $4.99/month, but you can upgrade to an ad-free version for only $6.99/month.

Then again, it's understandable if you don't necessarily want to add another streaming service to your monthly bill. Netflix has an array of reality series centered on intriguing professions if you want something like "Gold Rush" to binge-watch. For starters, there's the Netflix original series "Big Timber," which follows groups of loggers as they go about their business in the wilderness. Or if you prefer your reality series out on the open sea, there's "Battlefish."

As audiences have learned through all the years of "Gold Rush," where there's a will, there's a way, and if you want to watch your favorite mining show, you'll go to any lengths to do so.
