Here’s how to watch Season 1 of Taboo online — even without cable or for free.

Watch 'Taboo' online

One of this season’s most popular new shows is Taboo. A hit in both the US and the UK, the period drama, full of intensity and foreboding, has captured a large fanbase and high marks from critics.

Taboo‘s lead actor has something to do with its popularity. The strong, stony, sexy Tom Hardy plays ‘James Keziah manlaney.’

A brief synopsis: The year is 1814. James Delaney has long been presumed dead after he left for Africa and never came back. Only now James has returned home to London — though he isn’t the same man he was when he left. He has come to claim his inheritance and what’s left of his father’s shipping empire, and, hopefully, to rebuild his life. But the legacy left to James is toxic. Surrounded by unknown enemies, he must navigate unfamiliar obstacles to avoid his own death sentence. Conspiracy, betrayal, murder, treachery, and love abound in this dark family mystery.

Watch Taboo Online Free, Without Cable

You can use Kodi to watch Taboo online for free (plus lots of other shows). What is Kodi? Briefly, it’s a media player you can use to stream TV episodes and other content from the internet.

How To Use Kodi: Quick-Start Guide For Beginners

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.

To see what you can watch on Kodi, and how to get started, check out our beginner’s guide on how to use Kodi or our Kodi review. If you already use the media player and need help finding the best sources to stream TV, see our list of the best Kodi add-ons.
