How to Watch The Clearing Online: Stream the Cult Thriller from Anywhere

By Lore Apostol / July 5, 2023

The Clearing is a new series based on the best-selling crime thriller In the Clearing by J. P. Pomare and the real-life group The Family and their charismatic leader Anne Hamilton-Byrne. We have the premiere date, cast, and other details you are surely interested in, and the best part is that you’ll be able to stream it online quite easily from anywhere in the world you may be, so keep reading to find all there is to know.

This is a gripping psychological thriller about the famous Australian religious cult wreaking human havoc, blurring the lines between past and present, reality and nightmare. The series introduces cult leader Adrienne and Freya, a former cult member who is trying to raise her son in the outside world when her old life begins to intrude, and the story follows a woman who is forced to face the demons of her past to prevent a cult from kidnapping children in the future.

The Family cult’s practices included children being imprisoned and beaten, having their hair dyed blonde, being forced to dress identically, and being taught to worship Hamilton-Byrne as the reincarnation of Jesus Christ, all while living on an isolated property on the shores of Lake Eildon in Victoria. 

With this said, let’s see where, when, and how to easily watch The Clearing online from anywhere, even on the go or while traveling abroad.

When and Where to Watch The Clearing

The Clearing premiered with two episodes on Wednesday, May 24, 2023. In the US, you will find it on the Hulu platform (only available in the US), where new content usually becomes available to watch after 3 am ET (midnight PT). It will also premiere in Latin America on Star Plus and worldwide on Disney Plus via Star (available in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and more) on the same day.

The season has 8 episodes, and the series premiere will be followed by one new episode every Wednesday. 

Coming up next: The Clearing Episode 8: Island, on July 5, 2023.

How to Watch The Clearing Online from Anywhere

The many live TV and streaming services you rely on to watch content online in our home countries nowadays are geo-restricted. In the same way, Hulu is only available in the US and will block your access while abroad, and Disney Plus is available in various regions throughout North America, Latin America, Asia-Pacific, and Europe and will block your access while outside these territories. This is why you will need a tool to change your IP address to bypass the blockade, and the simple solution is to use a VPN subscription to watch The Clearing online from anywhere. 

Looking for the best VPN on the market to unblock tons of streaming services, including Hulu, Disney Plus, ESPN Plus, Netflix, HBO Max, Prime Video, and others? ExpressVPN is super easy to use; a subscription offers thousands of VPN servers worldwide, fast and stable connections, and the best encryption protocols to protect your data online. Plus, the money-back guarantee lets you even try ExpressVPN RISK-FREE for 30 days.

There’s also a big discount attached to the annual plan on the company's website when you subscribe to ExpressVPN (49% Discount and 3 Get Months FREE). To create your account, fill in the required details and pay. Then, download the native app for your device or system by following the steps in your email. Next, install the VPN app, launch it, and run it via a server from a no-blocks territory. Lastly, open the streaming service to watch The Clearing online from anywhere.

How to Watch The Clearing Online in the US Without Cable

If you live in the US, you can watch The Clearing on Hulu. This streaming service’s ad-supported plan is $2 a month for 3 months, then $7.99 a month, but you can also remove the ads by choosing the No-Ads option, which costs $14.99 a month. New customers get a generous 30-day free trial on Hulu

The library includes thousands of hit shows, movies, and more, and you can get even more content. For an additional monthly cost, there are tons of Premium or Partner add-ons, such as HBO Max, Showtime, STARZ, and Cinemax, to customize your account.

Besides the standalone service, people living in the United States have another option, and that is to stream The Clearing via The Disney Bundle. This deal has three services - it offers Disney Plus, ESPN Plus, and Hulu at a discounted price and lets you save a lot of money compared to the monthly cost of subscribing to these three services separately. Fees start at $12.99 per month with the version that offers all three services with ads. Prices go up to $19.99 a month with the option where only ESPN Plus has commercials.

The Hulu platform and the bundle are only available in the US, so you will need a good VPN app to access it while abroad, and you just run it in the background via a US server. More details are in the previous segment.

How to Watch The Clearing Online in Canada, the UK, and Australia

We expect The Clearing to premiere on the Disney Plus service through its Star branch in all territories outside the United States where the platform launched (except Latin America, where it will premiere on Star Plus) since it was announced that the premiere day would be the same worldwide. The list includes Canada, the UK, and Australia, among others, and the Disney Plus subscription fee will set you back CA $11.99 per month (or CA $119.99 per year) / £7.99 per month (or £79.90 per year) / AU $11.99 per month (or AU $119.99 per year).

This service is not available everywhere and has slightly different libraries in each country where it exists, so you may run into geo-blockades while traveling unless you use a safe and powerful VPN tool set to a server located back home to unblock Disney Plus. 

Another option is to use the same VPN app set to a US server to unblock Hulu from anywhere in the world.
