watch Insecure season 4

Usually, new seasons of Insecure start in the fall, so fans have had to be a little more patient this time around. The wait is almost over, though, as the fourth season of Insecure will begin at 10 PM EST (7 PM PST) on April 12 on HBO. There’ll be 10 episodes in total, with a new one every Sunday night, and below, we’ll explain how you can stream them all live, wherever you are in the world.

Note that we’re only recommending official sources. This is a hugely popular show, which makes unauthorized streams almost inevitable. That said, third-party sources tend to have very poor video quality, plus they’re constantly at risk of being taken offline for copyright violation. Insecure has a strong international rollout, and there are plenty of legitimate ways to watch, so there’s no need to resort to unreliable, unlicensed streams.

Insecure season 4 will only air on region-locked streaming platforms. If you’d like to watch on your usual services while traveling abroad, you’ll have to connect to a VPN server in your home country first.

How to watch Insecure from abroad with a VPN

VPNs aren’t actually as complicated as they seem. In fact, you can get connected and unblock your favorite streaming services in a matter of minutes. Just follow the simple steps below.

Here’s how to watch Insecure season 4 online from anywhere:

  1. First, you’ll need to choose a VPN. We recommend ExpressVPN but if you’re on a tight budget, NordVPN and CyberGhost are two excellent low-cost options.
  2. Next, install the VPN app onto any devices you’d like to stream on. Usually, you can connect five or so devices at once, but this varies from one provider to another.
  3. Take a look at the list of official broadcasters below and decide which service you’d like to unblock.
  4. Log in to the VPN and connect to a VPN server in the appropriate country. For instance, you’d use an American server to unblock HBO or a Canadian one to watch Crave abroad.
  5. Finally, visit your chosen service and try playing a video. You should find that it begins right away, with no problems. If it doesn’t, we’d recommend clearing your browser’s cookies and refreshing the page.

New episodes of Insecure will be broadcast live, which is why it’s so important to make sure your VPN works well in advance of the premiere. This way, if you’re having any trouble, you should have plenty of time to get help from your VPN’s support team.

How to watch Insecure season 4 live on US TV

USA flag

HBO is Insecure’s official US broadcaster. If you already get this channel as part of your existing cable TV package, you can just sign in to the website and watch at no added cost. It’s also possible to stream Insecure without cable by signing up for an HBO Now account. This costs $14.99 USD per month but comes with a free one-week trial.

Don’t worry if you have a little catching up to do before the new series starts; HBO’s on-demand library currently includes all three previous seasons, and the very first episode can actually be streamed for free; you just have to provide your email address and date of birth before watching.

HBO is geo-restricted and its content changes based on your location. This means that to watch Insecure from abroad, you’ll have to connect to one of your VPN’s US servers. Don’t have a VPN yet? You can try ExpressVPN risk-free thanks to its 30-day money-back guarantee; if it fails to impress you, just cancel within this period to receive a full refund.

Where else can I stream Insecure season 4 online?

Good news for fans living outside of the US: there are actually quite a few international broadcasters, and many of these are showing new episodes of Insecure just a few days after the US premiere. Read on to find out how to stream Insecure season 4 where you are:

It’s very easy to watch Insecure in Canada. The fourth season will premiere on Crave on April 12, the same day that it airs in the US. This service also has the first three seasons, although only the first is available to users with a standard $9.99 per month subscription.

To watch seasons 2, 3, and 4, you’ll need the Movies + HBO addon, which brings the total monthly price up to $19.98 CAD. If you’d prefer to watch in French, you can choose the Super Écran pass instead. This is the same price as the Movies + HBO package. Whichever plan you choose, a 30-day free trial is included.

Crave is region-locked and only available in Canada. However, you can access it while traveling abroad by connecting to one of your VPN’s Canadian servers.

Australian fans can start streaming the fourth season of Insecure from April 17 on Foxtel. If you’re already a Foxtel TV customer, you can sign in to the Foxtel Go app and start watching TV online immediately. If you’re with a different provider or don’t have cable TV, don’t worry: you just have to create a Foxtel Now account instead.

Prices start at $25 AUD per month, but Insecure season 4 will air on Foxtel Showcase, which is included in the base package. There’s also a ten-day free trial during which time you can watch any channel you like. Foxtel Now’s on-demand library currently offers the first three seasons of Insecure too, so you’ll be able to catch up if you’ve missed a few episodes here and there.

Foxtel services are geo-restricted and can’t usually be accessed from outside of Australia. Australians in other countries can still use them by connecting to a VPN.

Although there’s no confirmed British broadcaster for Insecure season 4 as yet, all three prior seasons have aired on Sky Atlantic, usually in the fall. As such, it seems likely that the new series will come to the UK, perhaps just a little later than in other countries.

In the meantime, you can stream seasons 1–3 on Now TV. To watch TV shows, you’ll need an Entertainment pass, which costs £8.99 per month. Alternatively, you can purchase seasons individually on Amazon Prime Video for £18.99 each, but given how expensive this is, there’s really no reason to do so.

Now TV and Amazon Prime Video are both region-locked. To watch Insecure on them while abroad, you’ll need a VPN.

What do we know about Insecure season 4?

The good news is there’s an Insecure season 4 trailer. The bad news is Issa has a trying time ahead. Not only is her business partner Condola dating her ex, Lawrence, but Molly’s new boyfriend is part of the same social circle as Nathan. Showrunner Prentice Penny has hinted that this will change the dynamics of this friendship, but to find out exactly how, you’ll have to watch for yourself.
