Much to the delight of its fans, Preacher is returning for another season. The show, a product of the DC universe, has deep comic book roots, and we are excited to see it play out on the small screen. There are many great options to watch Preacher streaming online free or for very cheap.

Also a veteran of the Marvel cinematic universe, Tulip is played by Ruth Negga, better known as Raina from Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

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.

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.

Nothing else is from AMC is currently available.
