If the first season of Succession caught your attention, then you should be happy to know that the second season of the show will broadcast on HBO starting in August. If you want to watch the show online, we are going to help you figure out which way is best for you.

For those who may be just starting out to watch Succession, you should know that this is a satirical comedy-drama TV series that focuses on the Roy family who owned a global media empire and is fighting for control when the family's patriarch has some health issues.

HBO broadcasts the show and it features Kieran Culkin, Hiam Abbass, Nicholas Brown, Peter Friedman, and many others. The second season of the show will premiere on August 11th, 2019, so you have plenty of time to figure out watch the best way to watch the show is.

How to Watch Succession Online?

Watching content online is absolutely fabulous, and it helps us so much because we have so much freedom. One thing we can't do when watching content online on live TV platforms or streaming services is to take that content with us when we travel abroad. If that happens to be your case, we can help you figure out how to bypass the blockade, by simply using a VPN service to change your IP. Let's see what you need to do.

Can You Watch Succession on HBO's Website?

Yes, you can do that quite easily because HBO has two platforms that you can watch their shows on, cold HBO Go and HBO Now. They both feature the exact same content, but the login process differs. For HBO Go you're going to need to have a cable TV subscription or DirecTV Now, while for HBO Now you can subscribe directly or use one of the other live TV services that feature the channel.

HBO Now and HBO Go - We start the list with HBO's own platforms, namely HBO Now and HBO Go. As mentioned, they both have the exact same content so you'll be able to watch Succession on either of them. If you want to subscribe to HBO directly, you can pay $14.99 for months.

Amazon Prime - If you're an Amazon Prime subscriber there is something else you can do, namely to add HBO through your subscription, so you only pay a single bill each month. Subscribing through Amazon Prime will also cost you $14.99, so there's not much change in there. You will then use your Amazon Prime credentials to log into HBO now.

Hulu - We continue the list with Hulu, which is a great service. Not only does it offer a live TV service for $44.99 per month, but it also gives subscribers a way to add HBO for $14.99. In fact, even if you are a video-on-demand subscriber-only, you can add HBO, which is absolutely great.

DirecTV Now - The list continues with DirecTV Now which is a platform that has seven bundles. Plus and Max are two bundles that were added earlier this year, and they both feature HBO by default. The other five bundles are called Entertainment, Choice, Xtra, Ultimate, and Optimo Mas, and if you want to use one of these you can add HBO for $14.99 per month. If you want to add even more content, there are other channel packs available, including featuring Spanish networks and three featuring International channels. Other premium networks are also available.

PlayStation Vue - We continue with PlayStation Vue, which is a great service that offers subscribers enough Cloud DVR storage space for 500 programs and five simultaneous streams. There are four bundles that you can get here called Access, Core, Elite, and Ultra. If you would rather go for Ultra, you will find that HBO is already part of the offering in the $84.99 per months bundle. You can also add HBO for $14.99 if you'll choose one of the other three bundles. Other ways to customize your plan are by adding additional channel packs and a couple of premium networks.

Can You Binge-Watch Succession?

You will find that all episodes from Succession can be found on HBO's website. Whether you're going to access them with the help of HBO GO or HBO Now, it all depends on what platform you chose to subscribe to. If you subscribe directly to HBO Now, you can use those credentials to sign in or those from Amazon Prime, Hulu, and Playstation Vue. If you have a cable contract where you pay for HBO,  or you have a DirecTV Now subscription you can sign in to HBO Go instead.

You can also purchase succession episodes from platforms like Google Play, YouTube, iTunes, Microsoft Store, Vudu, and Amazon Prime. You should make sure to check all the links in case either of these platforms has a better price offer for the channel or the season you wants to purchase. Season 2 episodes will show up once they start airing.
