The best ways to watch ‘Who is America” online without cable
Sacha Baron Cohen has perfected the art of convincing people to make themselves look foolish. Although known by many due to memorable characters like Ali G and Borat, he’s also a master of disguise.
In his recent television series, ‘Who is America?’, Sacha plays the roles of different politically opinionated characters and causes some well known politicians to say some really inappropriate stuff.
If you haven’t seen any of it yet, the trailer below a good taste of what else is to come.
Although season one started on July 15th, a new episode of Who is America? will air every Sunday at 10 p.m. ET/PT until the season finishes.
Who is America? plays on SHOWTIME, but that doesn’t mean you need a cable subscription to watch it. You can watch Who is America? online without cable directly through SHOWTIME itself, or you can add it to a streaming service you might already have.
Most of these services include a free trial, allowing you quickly catch up on missed episodes without breaking the bank.
Watch Who is America? online with Amazon Prime
Many Prime subscribers don’t know that in addition to 2 day shipping, they also get access to one of the best streaming services available. Amazon Prime Video has a huge database of on-demand and original content that you can binge at your leisure. Although Amazon Prime Video is free, SHOWTIME is a premium channel and will cost a little extra to add.
The main reason we recommend using Amazon Prime to get SHOWTIME when you don’t have a cable subscription is, well, because it’s cheaper! If you’re already paying for Amazon Prime, adding SHOWTIME only costs $8.99 a month. If you subscribe to SHOWTIME through most other services (even SHOWTIME directly), it’ll cost $10.99 per month. Make sure that you’re already using Amazon Prime for other things, since adding Prime just for SHOWTIME will cost a lot more than $10.99 a month!
Another reason we prefer to watch SHOWTIME online with Amazon is because they make organizing and paying for your premium channels really easy.
For example, if you don’t have cable and want to watch HBO as well as SHOWTIME, you have the option to sign up and pay for both of the services on their respective sites. This requires you to create an account, put in payment information, and remember a password for both services in addition to your Amazon account. With Amazon, you simply go to the Prime Video dashboard and add the channel to your list. We particularly like this because it makes it much easier to track the channels you’re paying for and cancel them when you stop using them. We’re all about saving money.
SHOWTIME on Amazon costs $8.99 a month but only starts to charge you after a 7-day free trial. If you’re not sure about the service or the show, the free trial will give you a chance to try both. You can watch Who is America? live each week, or watch them on-demand anytime you want even before your trial finishes.
Another benefit of Amazon is how easy it is to stream. Prime Video is supported by most major streaming devices including:
Watch Who is America? online with Hulu
Since Hulu is one of the most popular streaming services available, it’s quite likely that your household has access to it if you don’t have Prime. Like Prime, Hulu offers a SHOWTIME at a discounted rate of $8.99 for subscribers. You can add SHOWTIME to either a traditional Hulu subscription or to Hulu with Live TV if you have it.
One of the benefits of adding SHOWTIME to Hulu is that it helps to keep your media in one place. Switching apps or devices when you want to swap between shows is frustrating, especially if you’re watching live TV on it. Adding SHOWTIME to Hulu is the same as adding an extra channel and navigation is seamless.
If you’ve been considering Hulu anyway, we’ve done some quick math to help explain how you can use Who is America? as an excuse. Since a typical Hulu subscription costs $7.99 a month ($11.99 without commercials) and SHOWTIME would normally cost $10.99, getting Hulu and adding SHOWTIME basically lets you get Hulu for $2 less a month (while paying full price for SHOWTIME). Although the math might not be perfect, if you haven’t used it before Hulu is honestly a fantastic service. They have an incredibly deep content library and offers new episodes of cable shows much quicker than Netflix.
Hulu is available on the following streaming devices:
