Watch Preacher Live Stream on Sling TV
We have been hard-pressed to find a complete cable cutting solution that is better than Sling TV. To watch Preacher online, and anything else from AMC including The Walking Dead, it is easily the best option. AMC is part of their basic package of channels for only $20 per month and no contract. You can watch a Preacher live stream, and the network offers a rotating selection of on-demand episodes, depending on provider availability.
Sling TV (review) has a lot of great features, including live broadcast networks in certain markets and accessibility on multiple platforms including smartphones, tablets, and streaming devices. Sling also offers a variety of pay TV networks previously only available with expensive cable bills. Along with AMC, you can get:
- Food Network

Any of these are great options to watch Preacher streaming online.
Watch Preacher Online with PlayStation Vue
A similar service to Sling TV is PlayStation Vue, which can transform your home gaming system into a complete cable replacement. AMC, and the ability to watch Preacher online live, is part of the system’s basic package which starts at $29.99-$39.99 per month depending on your market. And, like Sling, there are a number of other live TV networks that were only available with cable before.
PlayStation Vue (review) also offers live broadcast TV in limited markets, with next day, on-demand content from NBC, ABC, and FOX available nationwide.
However, there are more limitations with Vue. The service is not available on Apple TV at this time, giving you one less way to stream Preacher without cable. There are restrictions based on your location and streaming is limited on-the-go, even with the iOS app. However, you may find that PlayStation Vue is the best option for you, so check out more information before choosing which service is best for you to watch Preacher online.

Is Preacher on Netflix?
Since Preacher is a brand new show on AMC, it won’t be available on Netflix yet. However, if history is to be believed, the show should be available in the future. AMC shows, like The Walking Dead, usually appear on the streaming video service about a year after the season premieres, which often corresponds to the premiere of the following season. This would provide you with another way to watch Preacher online.
Is Preacher on Hulu?
As with the case with Netflix, Preacher is a new show, so you won’t see Preacher on Hulu anytime soon. In fact, AMC seems to limit their programming on this subscription service. For example, at the time this post is being written, there are only six episodes of Fear the Walking Dead’s first season available with a Hulu subscription. Nothing else is from AMC is currently available.
Buy Preacher Full Episodes
Finally, if none of the above subscription services work for you, you can always watch Preacher online through a number of instant video streaming services including Amazon, Vudu, and iTunes. While you can buy Preacher full episodes this way, it will be more expensive than either Sling TV or PlayStation Vue, but one positive factor is that you will own the episodes forever. Each episode will cost around $2 to $3 with both HD and SD versions available. Or, you can choose to buy a discounted season pass before it even airs. If you’re looking for a way to watch Preacher online, there are a variety of options to buy the show at multiple price points.
