How To Watch ‘Westworld’ Online — Stream Season 1 Free, Without CableBy Steph Myers / March 3, 2017 / Tags: Live Stream, Stream TV, TV Shows
Here are all the ways to watch Westworld online. Catch up on Season 1 of the HBO drama series while waiting for the next season to start.
One of the best new TV shows to enter the airways is the HBO drama series Westworld. People got really into Westworld, pretty much immediately. If you’ve heard the hype and wondered if the show is actually that good — well, it depends on your taste. It certainly isn’t a no-brainer as the greatest show since Game of Thrones. But it has whipped up a fervent following.
The setting is a futuristic Wild West-themed amusement park. There, robots host humans seeking entertainment. Humans may enact all manner of humiliating and vile acts on the robots. But soon the bots can’t take it anymore and stage an uprising.
The fantasy/sci-fi drama stars Anthony Hopkins, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Evan Rachel Wood, and James Marsden — all of whom deliver excellent performances that keep audiences transfixed. Mystery, violence, and sex stand to make it a bonafide hit for HBO just as Game of Thrones is nearing its end.
Season 1 of Westworld, 10 episodes in all, concluded in December 2016. Season 2 is expected to start sometime in 2017.
If you want to stream Season 1 of Westworld online, you have a few options. (Skip to how to watch for free.)
How To Watch Westworld Online If You Have Cable
If you have a cable or satellite subscription that includes HBO, you can watch full episodes of Westworld online on HBO’s website and apps (called HBO GO). HBO GO is included as part of your HBO subscription from your cable/satellite provider.
Go here to watch Westworld online on HBO GO. All 10 episodes from Season 1 are available to stream on-demand.
You can probably also watch Westworld via your TV provider’s on-demand library. If you don’t have a TV subscription that includes HBO, keep reading for more ways to watch.
How To Watch Westworld Online Without Cable
You don’t need cable to get HBO. You can get HBO’s standalone streaming service, called HBO NOW, for $15/month — no other TV package needed.
HBO NOW will let you watch all of HBO’s programming, both live and on-demand. You can try it free for a month — which is plenty of time to binge-watch Westworld and then cancel the service.
You can also order HBO NOW through Sling TV and Amazon Video. You can often get a slight discount on Amazon if you bundle HBO NOW with some other streaming services.
Another option is to buy the whole first season on Amazon Video, for $38.99.
How To Watch Westworld Online For Free
As stated, you can take advantage of the 30-day free trial of HBO NOW to binge-watch Season 1 for free. HBO will also let you watch one episode of Westworld for free without signing up for the trial.
There are also some “alternative” methods to stream the entire Season 1 for free — but stay away from those scummy “free live TV!!!!” sites. There’s a better way.
You can use Kodi to watch Westworld online for free (plus lots of other shows). What is Kodi? Briefly, it’s a free media player application you can use to stream TV shows and other content from the internet.
One note — whether Kodi is legal is an issue of debate. Yes, the networks frown upon watching their content for free. Hey, I’m not here to judge. But it is highly recommended you use a VPN with Kodi to stay private and secure.
