By Gabriela Vatu / April 4, 2019

Sure, westerns may not be in their golden anymore, but it sure is fun to watch one now and then, especially when it's a TV series that's as good as AMC's The Son is. If you're part of the large group who wants to make sure they can watch The Son live online this time around, we can help you out.

The Son is on its second season which is scheduled to air starting with April 24, 2019. Pierce Brosnan returns as Eli McCullough, a Texas cattle baron who dives into the oil industry back in 1917.

The show first aired back in April 2017, so the second season was eagerly awaited by fans. Even though there's been such a gap between seasons, this second one is quite eagerly expected. You should also know that this will be the final season for The Son. Let's go ahead and learn all about watching the show live this time around.

Can You Watch The Son Live on AMC?

Yes, that is possible, indeed. AMC Live is something that exists on the network's webpage, but you need to log in to access it. This requires you set up an account where you associate your cable or live TV credentials to prove you're paying for AMC access somewhere.

What Live TV Platforms Can Help You Watch The Son?

Well, there are quite a few live TV platforms available out there, and one of them is bound to be a right fit for you and your needs. It only makes sense to watch TV online in an age when we already use the Internet for everything else. Live TV platforms have so many benefits when compared to traditional cable solutions - they're far cheaper, they can be customized (some more than others), and you can cancel your subscription at any given time. Plus, they have the bonus of allowing subscribers to watch their favorite shows wherever they may be since all they need is an Internet connection and a smartphone or another compatible device.

fuboTV - At the top of our list, we have fuboTV, which is a great platform that started as a dream come true for sports lovers and now has turned into a nicely shaped hybrid that mixes in sports with entertainment for the whole family. There are two bundles to choose between - fubo and fubo Extra - and they both feature AMC, so you can pick whichever one you like best. If you want to customize the service, there are loads of extra channel packs and a few premium networks, including AMC Premiere. Make sure to give our fuboTV review a read before making a decision.

Sling TV - Sling TV is up next, and it's an excellent platform for those who are super nitpicky about the channels they watch. This one comes with three principal bundles - Orange, Blue, and Orange + Blue -, a bunch of extra channel packs grouped by interest, and several premium networks. AMC is present in all three bundles, so you're good to go no matter which one you end up choosing. Check out our Sling TV review to get all the details about this service.

Philo - Another entry on our list is Philo, a great platform that's simplified to the extreme. There are two bundles here - 44 Channels and 57 Channels - and nothing else; no channel packs, no premium networks, no add-ons. What you see is what you get with this particular platform. AMC is present in both bundles, so you're good to go no matter which one you choose, but since they're both so cheap, you can quickly pick the more expensive one. Read TechNadu's Philo review to find out more.

YouTube TV - Next, we have YouTube TV on our list, a platform that also comes with a single bundle of channels. For $40 per month, YouTube TV offers a long list of channels, including AMC. The only way to customize the service is by adding premium networks, including AMC Premiere. Make sure to check out our YouTube TV review to find out all the cool details about the service, particularly about the perks offered to subscribers.

DirecTV Now - DirecTV Now is up next on our list, which is a platform that now has seven bundles. Two of them are entirely new - Plus and Max - while the other five have been around for a long time but now carry a new name (Entertainment, Choice, Xtra, Ultimate, and Optimo Mas) and a price double than what it used to be. Sadly, AMC is not available in Plus or Max and only shows up in the more-expensive bundles that have a price range starting at $86 and going up to $135 per month. You can also add premium networks, Spanish channel packs, and international bundles. Read our DirecTV Now review to understand the service better.

PlayStation Vue - The last platform on our list is PlayStation Vue, which is an excellent addition to any household. There are four bundles to choose from in here, namely Access, Core, Elite, and Ultra, and AMC is part of them all. There are a couple of channel packs you can add, as well as several premium networks. Our PlayStation Vue review will reveal all about the service, including those great perks it comes with.

What Can You Do If You Travel Abroad and Can't Watch The Son?

If you didn't already know, now's the time to find out that live TV platforms and pretty much any American streaming service are geoblocked. This means that due to licensing deals, they can't broadcast content outside the United States. If you find yourself unable to watch your favorite shows while traveling abroad, don't despair - there is a way. You see, all these platforms work like any other website and know your location by reading your IP address. If you were to change your IP address to reflect a US address, you could bypass the problem entirely. Thankfully, that's what VPNs are for, so here's what you need to do.

How Can You Binge on Older Episodes of The Son?

Unfortunately, if you're hoping to watch the first season of The Son over on AMC, you're out of luck because the site doesn't feature any of the episodes right now. You should be able to watch the new episodes when they start airing, though, so keep an eye on that. If you're a Hulu subscriber (or are planning to subscribe to the VOD platform), you can watch the full first season, with all ten episodes being available there.

If you'd rather own the episodes and seasons, you can also go ahead and purchase them from various platforms, such as Microsoft Store, YouTube, Google Play, Vudu, iTunes, or Amazon Prime. You should check them all and see where you can get the best price at the time of purchase, since they may offer temporary deals.
