By Gabriela Vatu / July 10, 2019

The final season of the Showtime series The Affair is finally coming to the channel. If you want to watch season five of The Affair online, we're going to help you through it.

The Affair is a show that first premiered in 2014, and it has now reached the fifth season. The story follows two people called Noah and Alison who engage in an extramarital relationship. The final season will feature a time jump where we'll see Anna Paquin as the daughter of Alison, looking to find out how her mother died. Throughout the series, each episode has featured multiple perspectives, with the story told through the eyes of several people.

The fifth season will feature 11 episodes, and it's going to debut on Showtime on August 25th, 2019. If you want to watch The Affair online, we are going to give you a helping hand.

How to Watch The Affair Online?

In the past few years, we have all begun watching more and more content online. The difference is that the content that runs through live TV platforms and streaming services is all protected by licensing deals so you can't watch it when you're abroad. Basically, as soon as you cross the border and your IP changes, you're no longer going to have access to the platforms you pay money for. All you need to do in order to bypass this geoblockade is to change your IP address to trick the system into thinking you're still in the United States and for this, you're going to need to subscribe to a VPN service. We are even going to guide you through it.

Can You Watch The Affair on Showtime's Website?

The Showtime website does feature a live stream that you can access since it is a subscription-based channel. You will need to log into an account to have access to the stream and you're going to have to either subscribe to the platform directly or use your TV provider credentials to log in. These can come from a live TV service as the ones we're going to present to you or a cable provider. We simply suggest you go for a live TV platform over cable because those give you access to a lot more channels.
