The Leftovers is coming back to HBO for season 2 on Sunday, October 4. After an intriguing first season last year that was met with critical acclaim and was enjoyed by fans, season 2 is now here with even more mystery and excitement surrounding it. Some of the key characters, including the Garvey family, may be moving on to a different town this year, and early trailers suggest that a second departure could be coming this year. It’s sure to be an exciting season with plenty of fascinating storylines to follow.
Fans without cable TV access, however, are wondering how they can legally watch The Leftovers online since the show comes on HBO. Fortunately, there are multiple options for those who are not cable subscribers to tune in and catch The Leftovers live stream and on demand. Here are a few of your best bets for watching The Leftovers streaming.
Sling TV Lets You Watch The Leftovers Online Live and On Demand
Sling TV is one of the most easiest ways to watch The Leftovers online. Sling TV (review) is a live streaming service backed by Dish Network that gives subscribers access to cable’s most popular channels at a fraction of the price. Channels, including HBO, are delivered live over your internet connection and can be watched on on computers, phones, tablets, and TVs with connected devices.
Sling TV’s basic package starts at $20 a month and includes over 20 channels, like ESPN, TNT, AMC, and more. You can add HBO to your subscription for an extra $15 a month. There’s no contract. You pay month-to-month just like you do with Netflix and can cancel at any time.
With HBO on Sling TV, you get both the channel’s live stream and access to its full on-demand library (the same selection as HBO GO and HBO NOW). That means you can watch The Leftovers online either live or on demand to fit your schedule. You can also catch up with every single past episode of The Leftovers on demand.
Sling TV has a free 7-day trial if you want to sign up to see how it works in order to watch the first week of The Leftovers.
If you plan to tune in all season to watch The Leftovers, you may want to take advantage of a limited-time deal Sling TV is offering. When you prepay for a three month subscription, you’ll be able to get a free Roku Streaming Stick or for 50% off of a Roku 3 streaming player for your TV. This will let you watch everything Sling TV has to offer right on your TV.
HBO NOW Offers On-Demand Streaming of The Leftovers
HBO NOW also lets you watch The Leftovers online on demand at the same time the show airs live. While you won’t get live access to the actual HBO channel, new episodes are placed in the library at the same time the show goes to air. HBO NOW is similar to HBO GO, but no cable TV subscription is required. With your Apple TV, Amazon Fire, or Chromecast, you can watch HBO NOW on your TV. You can also watch The Leftovers streaming on a wide variety of mobile devices (phones and tablets) and your computer. Support is also expected to be added soon for other streaming players so more cord cutters may be able to access HBO NOW in the upcoming months.
