After a long wait, Rick and Morty is finally returning to Adult Swim at 11:30 p.m. ET on July 26. Rick and Morty’s second season will comprise 10 episodes, one less than season one. The show, which debuted to critical claim, was featured on the main stage of New York’s 2014 Comic Con thanks to its passionate fan base and the fact its creators are approaching almost rock star status in the world of animation.
For those eager to catch up with Grandpa Rick, Morty, Beth, Jerry, and Summer, some teasers of season 2 are already available on the Adult Swim website (as is all of Season 1 for those who want to catch up on what they missed or get a refresher). The truly good news for Rick and Morty fans, however, is that you don’t need cable to watch the new season. Fortunately, there are some great legal options for those who want to watch Rick and Morty online.
Sling TV Offers an Easy Way to Watch Rick and Morty Online
Sling TV offers one of the best options for fans of Rick and Morty who don’t have cable but want to watch the crazy grandpa and his grandson on their adventures around the galaxy. Sling TV’s streaming service makes it possible to watch the show live at air time so there is no delay, and you can catch the entire season by signing up for their low cost, no-contract, monthly service.
Sling TV has become the go-to for cord cutters who want to watch popular channels like Adult Swim/Cartoon Network, ESPN, ESPN2, AMC, TNT, TBS, HGTV, and more without an expensive cable contract. For the low cost of just $20 a month, subscribers to Sling TV get over 20 channels using their internet connection. You can watch Sling TV on your TV (using a streaming device like the Roku 3 or Roku Streaming Stick), phone, tablet, or computer. That means you can watch Rick and Morty online as well as other hit shows on Adult Swim and other channels.
Sling TV is currently running a great deal that will allow you to tune in to Rick and Morty for premiere week and every week thereafter. When you sign up for three months of service, you can get a Roku 2 free or take 50% off a Roku 3 Streaming Media Player. This is a limited-time deal worth looking into as the streaming devices basically end up paying for themselves. As long as you keep the service active, you can watch the entire season not just live but also on demand if you miss an episode.
If you don’t want to take advantage of the Roku offer, you can also try Sling TV free for 7 days to see if the service is right for you.
Hulu Offers Rick and Morty Streaming On Demand
If you’re looking to catch up on past episodes of Rick and Morty, Hulu is a great solution. The popular streaming service currently has the entirety of season one available on its service. That means you can binge all of these great Rick and Morty full episodes on Hulu and enjoy a season full of laughs and entertainment. Hulu is available on just about every device, and plans start at only $7.99 a month. It’s a great way to watch Rick and Morty online. Check out our Hulu review for more info.
Other Legal Ways to Watch Rick and Morty Online
While Sling TV offers an easy way to watch a Rick and Morty live stream, you have other options as well. Adult Swim currently has all of season 1 on their website and may put up some season 2 episodes in the future, but we don’t know that for sure just yet.
Amazon Instant Video and iTunes will also have the new season available, but you’ll have to pay for a season pass or pay per episode each week. Typically, each episode can cost between $2-$3, and they aren’t available live — you have to wait until the next day to get them. So, the costs can add up pretty quickly, especially if you’re trying to keep up with any other shows.
