It is finally time for the return of Showtime’s popular series about the ultra-rich. The seventh season of Billions will premiere on Friday, August 11.
Anybody with a subscription to Showtime can watch the show, but due to geo-restrictions, you will need a VPN to stream Billions on vacation. To help you out, we’ve explained how to watch Billions season 7 online from anywhere – so you don’t have to miss a second.
Billions is incredibly popular, which makes it likely that unauthorized streams will circulate. However, these frequently fail to offer the same level of video quality, and they’re at risk of being taken down for copyright violation.
That is why we have only recommended official sources to watch Billions season 7 online. On the plus side, with an almost simultaneous international release, it’s easy to stream Billions from just about anywhere
Season seven of Billions will only air on geo-restricted streaming services. If you’re traveling abroad and looking to watch on your usual platforms, you’ll have to connect to a Virtual Private Network (VPN) server in your home country.
How to unblock and live stream Billions season 7 from abroad
VPNs are quite easy to use but they can be a little overwhelming at first. Below is our simple step-by-step guide to unblocking and watching Billions season 7.
Here’s how to watch Billions (season 7) online from anywhere:
- The first step is getting a suitable VPN. We recommend NordVPN but if you’re looking for a low-cost alternative, ExpressVPN and Surfshark are both strong choices.
- Next, download and install the VPN app. Most providers allow multiple connections at the same time, so feel free to install it on all of the devices you use to stream.
- Decide which of the services below you’d like to access abroad, then connect to a VPN server in the appropriate country. You need an American server to unblock Showtime abroad, for example, or a Canadian server for Crave.
- Log in to your chosen service (or create an account if you haven’t already) then try playing a video. It should load immediately but if you have any problems, we recommend clearing your browser’s cookies and reloading the page.
Note that Billions season 7 will air live on Showtime on Sunday the 13th at 8 PM (this is two days after its initial release on Paramount+ with Showtime). This is why it’s so important for you to make sure your VPN works properly (using the steps above) before the premiere. This approach ensures that if you run into problems, you’ll still have time to contact your VPN’s customer support team and won’t have to miss the start of the long-awaited fifth season.
How to watch Billions season 7 on US TV
Billions season 7 will air exclusively on Showtime and Paramount+ in the US. New episodes will be broadcast at 8 PM ET/PT and will be added to the platform’s on-demand catalog the same day (the premiere comes to Paramount+ two days earlier on August 11). If you’re looking to catch up ahead of the premiere, Showtime also has the first four seasons.
If your cable TV package includes Showtime, you can just enter your provider details and start watching immediately at no added cost. Luckily, though, there are plenty of ways to watch Billions online even if you don’t have cable. Users can sign in with a fuboTV, YouTube TV, DirecTV Stream, or Hulu account, and if you don’t have any of these, you can always sign up to Showtime Now for $10.99 USD per month (after a 30-day free trial).
Showtime is region-locked and only available in the US. However, by connecting to a US VPN server, you can use it while traveling abroad. NordVPN offers a risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee, allowing you to watch Billions season 7 and claim a full refund if unsatisfied.
Where else can I stream Billions season 7 live online?
This is a hugely popular show, so it should come as no surprise that season 7 will be released internationally. What is unusual, though, is how quickly it’s available outside of the US. Below, we’ll let you know which networks are showing the new series of Billions in your country:
Canadian viewers can stream Billions’ seventh season on Crave the same day that it’s released in the US. Unfortunately, Crave has done away with its basic plan. This means you will need to pay $19.99 to stream Showtime on Crave.
If you are new to the Billions, or looking to catch up before the new episodes arrive, Crave has you covered. You can use the service to watch seasons 1–5 on-demand.
Just bear in mind that Crave is geo-restricted and can only be accessed within Canada. As a result, any Crave subscriber outside of Canada on vacation will need to use a VPN to get a Canadian IP address.
Stan is the official Billions broadcaster in Australia. This platform will have a new episode every week from August 12. If you can’t wait a week, you can always rewatch your favorites since all four prior seasons are available on-demand. Stan costs $10 AUD and comes with a one-month free trial.
This service is region-locked. As such, if you’re outside Australia, you won’t be able to use it without the help of a VPN.
Billions season 7 is set to premiere in the UK and Ireland on Paramount Plus on August 12. This is a departure from the norm for British viewers, who used to watch it on Sky Atlantic.
Paramount+ is geo-restricted. This means that if you’re outside the UK, you’ll need a VPN to access your account.
What do we know about the seventh season of Billions?
In season 6, Mike Prince took center stage as head of Axe Capital. In season 7, Damian Lewis will return as Bobby Axelrod – so buckle your seatbelts! This is what Showtime has to say:
“In season seven, alliances are turned on their heads. Old wounds are weaponized. Loyalties are tested. Betrayal takes on epic proportions. Enemies become wary friends. And Bobby Axelrod returns, as the stakes grow from Wall Street to the world.”
Will there be an 8th season of Billions?
No! Sadly, Showtime has confirmed that season 7 is the final season of Billions. The good news? Paramount Plus has four different spin-offs in the work: Billions: Miami, Billions: London, Millions, and Trillions. No, we aren’t joking, Trillions! That is a lot of new shows to look forward to, so watch this space!
