The creators of Lost and Once Upon a Time are back with a brand new television series, Dead of Summer. The show, which stars Elizabeth Mitchell, Elizabeth Lali, and Zelda Williams (daughter of Robin Williams), is set at a summer camp in the Midwest, Camp Stillwater, in the 1980s. The counselors, most who know one another from their previous time as campers at the same camp, find out that their camp experience is going to be a little different this time around, since an ancient evil has been released on the campgrounds.
Dead of Summer will premiere on Freeform on June 28 at 9 p.m. ET. Freeform has become an increasingly popular cable channel, but there are still plenty of ways that cord cutters can watch Dead of Summer online without having a cable subscription. The following guide will tell you all of the legal, low-cost ways you can watch Dead of Summer online.

Sling TV is easily one of the best services around for cord cutters. This live stream service offers 20 popular cable channels and a limited on-demand library for just $20 a month.

Watch Dead of Summer Online with PlayStation Vue
PlayStation Vue is another live stream service. You receive around 60 channels and, like with Sling TV, you have access to an on-demand library of previously released content. This comes to just $29.99 a month, and since there is no contract you can cancel anytime you want. You get channels like AMC, Freeform, Comedy Central, ESPN, Syfy, TBS, USA, and many others. If you’re in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Dallas, or Miami you have access to local channel live streams. If you’re not in the area you still get the content, it’s just placed in your on-demand library the day after it airs on TV. PlayStation Vue (review) is available on PS3 and PS4 gaming consoles, iPad/iPhone, Amazon Fire TV, and Chromecast. PlayStation Vue has many great attributes, but their mobile restrictions can be hard for many to handle. When you sign up as a new member you’re tied to your home location. Even if you use mobile devices outside of the home you won’t be able to access any content.
