How to watch Preacher season 4 online

AMC’s original series Preacher will return for its fourth and final season on August 4 at 9PM EST (6PM PST). There’ll be 10 one-hour long episodes in Preacher season 4 and each of these will air live on AMC. Unfortunately, AMC content is only available in the US and Canada which means you’ll need a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to watch it abroad.

While there are plenty of shady streaming sites which might offer Preacher season 4, we’ll only be recommending official sources. This way, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that the stream won’t be taken down for copyright violation mid-episode, and you’re watching Preacher season 4 in the highest quality possible.

Preacher season 4 will only be available on region-locked platforms. For this reason, you’re going to need a VPN to watch it outside the US and Canada.

How to watch Preacher season 4 online anywhere with a VPN

There are a few things you need to do in order to be able to watch Preacher season 4 online with a VPN. We’ll take you through everything step-by-step:

Using a VPN to watch Preacher season 4 online

  1. While you don’t need to sign up for an AMC account, you will need to sign in with your TV provider details in order to watch Preacher season 4 on AMC (there’s also an option to watch ad-free with AMC Premier for a monthly fee of $4.99).
  2. Next, you’ll need to sign up with a VPN. This should be a service with servers in the US that are able to unblock AMC. We particularly recommend ExpressVPN. However, NordVPN and CyberGhost are also well worth considering.
  3. Download and install the VPN app or browser extension for the device you’d like to watch AMC on.
  4. Open the VPN app or browser extension and connect to a server in the US.
  5. Clear your browser’s cache and cookies to ensure the changes take effect.
  6. Go to AMC and select an episode of Preacher season 4 which should be unblocked! (If not, we recommend you try another US server. Alternatively, contact your VPN’s customer support).

It’s worth mentioning that whenever you access AMC via a new US IP address, you receive a 15-minute ‘Preview pass’. As such, you can theoretically watch Preacher season 4 free on AMC without signing in with a TV provider. However, you’d have to change your IP address every 15 minutes and clear your cache and cookies in the process. As such, it’s probably not worth the hassle.

How to watch Preacher season 4 on US TV

USA flag

The only way to watch Preacher season 4 on US TV is on AMC which is a cable TV channel. You can also watch live online on AMC Live via the AMC website. While you don’t need an AMC account in order to watch full episodes, you do need to sign in with a TV provider (AMC must be part of this TV package).

New episodes of Preacher season 4 will be available online the day after they premiere on AMC. Another way in which you can watch AMC is via live TV streaming services such as FuboTVPlayStation Vue, and YouTube TV. The advantage of these services is that they let you stream AMC without a cable TV subscription. If you’re outside the US, your best bet is to sign up with one of these services using a VPN. By selecting a server in the US, you’ll be able to unblock the service and watch AMC abroad.

Where else can I watch Preacher online?

While season 4 will premiere on AMC, you can find previous seasons of Preacher on Hulu and Amazon Prime Video if you’re in the US, or Stan if you’re in Australia. It’s therefore likely that season 4 of Preacher will be available on such platforms in the near future. You’ll need a VPN in order to unblock these services because Hulu is only available in the US and Stan is restricted to Australia. Unfortunately, Preacher is not yet available on any version of Netflix.

Hulu subscriptions are priced at $5.99 and $11.99 USD per month. Keep in mind that Amazon Prime Video only offers seasons 1-2. If you’re not a Prime customer, you can purchase episodes from seasons 1-3 individually for $1.99 (SD) or $2.99 USD (HD). Alternatively, you can buy a full season for $16.99 (SD) or $19.99 USD (HD). Meanwhile, Stan packages start at $10 AUD per month.

You can try Amazon Prime Video and Stan free with a 30-day trial. It’s also worth knowing that ExpressVPNNordVPN, and CyberGhost all offer a money-back guarantee so you can try their services risk-free.

Can I use a free VPN to watch Preacher season 4?

You’ll find it difficult to watch Preacher season 4 with a free VPN. Preacher season 4 is only available on AMC and many free VPNs aren’t able to unblock it (free VPNs also struggle to unblock Netflix). Regardless of this, free VPNs are not a good choice for streaming. They tend to attract a high number of users which overburdens the limited number of servers. The result is slow speeds with a lot of lag and buffering. What’s more, many free VPNs actually throttle your bandwidth.

Aside from AMC, most free VPNs can’t unblock the likes of Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, and Stan. This means you won’t easily be able to watch Preacher seasons 1-3. Free VPNs also lack security features including encryption and a kill switch. In order to make money, many free VPNs spam you with ads or even log your browsing activity and sell it to third parties. In contrast, the best VPNs to watch AMC and Preacher season 4 are fast, able to unblock popular streaming services and use encryption and a no-logs policy to protect your privacy.
