Though not without controversy, the fifth season of Girls full episodes premieres on Sunday, February 21 at 10 P.M. ET on HBO. The show follows writer Lena Dunham’s character Hannah and her attempt to navigate the world of adulting in New York City along with her group of “best” girlfriends. But relationships between young women are always complicated, and all women can relate to the difficult coming of age story regardless of when they, themselves, had these experiences. The generation may be different, but the experiences are not.
With a fantastic cast that includes Allison Williams, Adam Driver (Kylo Ren in Star Wars: The Force Awakens), Jemima Kirke, and Zosia Mamet the show has managed to reinvent itself four times over so far, with some of the biggest changes potentially awaiting the cast in this next season. If you’ve been waiting to see what Hannah, Jessa, Marnie, and Shoshanna have been up since the last season ended, you finally have your chance.
But what if you don’t have cable? HBO is a harsh mistress, so check out our guide to watch Girls online and live streaming.
Watch Girls Live Stream with Sling TV
Yes, we’re at it again, recommending Sling TV at the top of our list. It really is our favorite all-in-one cable replacement. Sling TV is a product of Dish Network and it gives you access to many networks previously only available with an expensive cable package. The basic Sling TV service is only $20 a month with no contract. The basic channel packages includes 20+ popular channels, including ESPN, TNT, TBS, AMC and many more. To watch Girls online, you can add HBO streaming for only $15 more a month, which is about the cost of the standalone HBO services, too. But we’ll get into those later.
Sling TV with the HBO addition not only gives you access to Girls full episodes and a variety of other HBO shows, like Game of Thrones, but also countless programming options from major cable networks. Have you felt like you’re missing out on The Walking Dead when you’re friends are talking about the latest episodes? Not a problem with Sling TV. Read more in our Sling TV review.

Watch Girls Online with HBO NOW
So, if Sling TV isn’t the right fit, or you’ve already replaced cable with other options (such as Hulu or Netflix) but still want access to HBO, you’re in luck. When HBO released HBO GO, fans who had already ditched cable were disappointed that a subscription was still needed to access content. But HBO has our back and it wasn’t long before they released the streaming version, HBO NOW, available to all potential customers.
Girls, Last Week Tonight, Animals, Game of Thrones and more can be at your fingertips with the affordable HBO NOW package. The cost is only $14. 99 per month. And, like the HBO package with Sling TV, it will give you access to all of HBO’s on-demand content. It is important to know that while you can’t watch Girls live stream, the service allows you to access each new episode online at the same time it is airing on the network. In some ways, that’s better than living streaming. And while in many ways you can’t watch Girls online free, the sheer amount of HBO programming you get with HBO NOW makes up for that very quickly.
So, with these options available and easy to access, you won’t miss a single episode of the newest season of Girls. And, you can even go back and watch the previous seasons to catch up. Are there other shows you can’t miss? You can learn how to watch TV shows online in our guide. We even have a search engine to help you find your favorite shows!
