Sometimes it takes a long time for our favorite shows to make it to the silver screen. HBO’s Westworld is no different. Like Game of Thrones, the show was delayed several times and the drama on and off set was reported on far and wide. But eventually Westworld will air online and offline and hopefully the amount of work they put into the final product makes it all worth it. The show features several household name actors like Anthony Hopkins and Ed Harris. But that’s not the only reason to watch. Science Fiction on HBO is something that’s never been done before and you know you have to find out what it tastes like.
There are several ways to watch HBO’s content, and Westworld online and streaming for free. Here are the most convenient.
Stream Westworld Live with Sling TV
Another way to get Westworld without cable is to sign up for Sling. It’s a cable alternative that gets you several channels. HBO is an extra add on here. You can sign up or explore the service more here. There’s a 7-Day free trial so this might be a nice alternative if you just want to give it a chance.
Watch Westworld with DIRECTV NOW
Another service making the rounds is DIRECTV NOW. You can watch Westworld by adding HBO to your $35 subscription. It’s only five more bucks which is the cheapest HBO is anywhere. Stream Westworld live with this service similar to Sling. There’s a 7 Day free trial there too so give it a shot!
UPDATE: DIRECTV NOW is offering a $25 per month discount on the service for anyone who has AT&T Unlimited (AT&T is the parent company of DIRECTV. They’re also throwing in HBO for free which is pretty amazing. This is the best deal in town, folks.It’s free anyway.
Watch Westworld with HBO Go or HBO Now
For a long time HBO only had a streaming service called HBO Go which required, and still requires a cable subscription of some kind. With that, though, they were ahead of their time before many channels had their own app at all. Now, in the age of Westworld, HBO has released another app that is nearly identical except for the very important detail that you can subscribe “stand alone”, without a cable subscription. It’s $15 per month.
How is that free streaming of Westworld, you ask? Well HBO Now has a 30 day free trial period so you can binge all of your favorite shows in that time if you feel so inclined, including Westworld. We bet you’ll want to stick with it because there’s just no way you’ll get through all of the other , non-Westworld HBO stuff in that time.
Is Westworld on Netflix or Hulu?
Nope. No HBO content is currently on Hulu or Netflix and that’s going to be the case for a long time. They’re competitors and Westworld is one of the Home Box Office’s crown jewel. Westworld is not streaming on Netflix. Westworld is not streaming on Hulu. The old version of Westworld might be online there, though! Search through their catalog and see.
Download Full Episodes of Westworld
If you’d rather own all episodes of Westworld without having to subscribe to HBO or HBO Now you can always head to your favorite digital retailer like Amazon or iTunes or Google Play to add them to your collection. It’s about three or four dollars per episode of Westword just just be mindful. It may make more sense to subscribe, right?
Amazon Prime members get a ton of HBO content for free with their subscription but Westoworld won’t be streaming there until years later. You’ll be able to buy the episodes, of course but it won’t be free. They do have Mr. Robot, though which might appeal to this audience.
Avoid Illegal Westworld Streams
If you know how hard it is to put shows like Westworld together than you know it’s worth paying for the right to stream the show online. It’s not always free in the end but HBO has given you several ways to watch Westworld without a cable subscription that are legitimate. Give the trials a chance or watch at a friends house if you must.
The other thing these illegal streams have going for them is a whole mountain of malware and viruses for your computer! Between that and the buffering and the foriegn ads all over the screen, this isn’t the way Westworld was meant to be watched online or otherwise.
