Westworld season 3 will premiere on Sunday, March 15 at 9 PM EST (6 PM PST). This third season will be made up of eight episodes and takes place immediately after events of the second season. Unfortunately, though, it’ll only be available to watch in certain countries. Read on to find out how you can use a VPN to watch Westworld season 3 online even when traveling abroad.
Please keep in mind that we’ll only be recommending official sources for watching Westworld season 3. This is a popular TV series so we can expect there to be plenty of unauthorized streams. However, they’re usually of inferior quality. Low resolution and frequent lag are issues you’d likely encounter. Furthermore, unlicensed sources may even be taken offline for copyright infringement. Besides, there are a number of ways you can stream Westworld season 3 online legitimately so there’s no need to waste time on unofficial sources.
Westworld season 3 will only be shown on region-locked platforms. You’ll need to connect to a VPN to watch via your home streaming services while traveling abroad.
How to watch Westworld season 3 online with a VPN
Wondering how a VPN works? When you connect to a VPN’s server, you’re provided with a new IP address for that specific location. For example, connecting to a server in the United States will provide you with a US IP address. This can then be used to unblock geo-restricted content such as the premiere of Westworld season 3 on HBO.
Here’s how to watch Westworld season 3 online from anywhere:
- Sign up with a VPN that unblocks HBO. We recommend ExpressVPN although NordVPN and CyberGhost also work with HBO and offer great value for money.
- Download the appropriate VPN app for your device before following the installation instructions. The VPNs listed above offer a variety of apps and browser extensions.
- Open the VPN app and connect to a server in the US for a US IP address. You’ll then be able to unblock HBO and stream Westworld season 3 from anywhere in the world.
- Go to HBO Go or HBO Now (or a streaming service that offers HBO) and select a live stream or on-demand episode. The content should now be unblocked and play without issue.
- Still encountering restrictions? Try clearing your browser’s cache and cookies. If this doesn’t work, it might be worth connecting to another US server.
New episodes of Westworld will be shown live on HBO Go and HBO Now. For this reason, it’s a good idea to test your VPN ahead of the Westworld season 3 premiere. If you have any trouble, you then have enough time to contact your VPN’s customer support for further assistance.
How to watch Westworld season 3 on US TV
You can watch the Westworld season 3 premiere on HBO Go and HBO Now. In order to watch via HBO Go, you’ll need a US cable TV subscription. However, HBO Now is a stand-alone package and is available cable-free. It costs $14.99 per month and includes a 7-day free trial.
Another way in which you can watch HBO is via the following streaming services: AT&T TV Now ($65 USD/month) and Hulu with Live TV (from $5.99 per month plus an extra $14.99/month for the HBO add-on). Both AT&T TV Now and Hulu come with one week free trials.
Since HBO Go, HBO Now, AT&T TV Now, and Hulu are only available in the US, you’ll have to connect to one of your VPN’s American servers to use them abroad. Luckily, ExpressVPN unblocks HBO and includes a 30-day money-back guarantee which means you can try it out risk-free.
Where else can I watch Westworld season 3?
The US version of HBO isn’t the only place you can watch Westworld season 3. Read on to find out the other options available:
Westworld season 3 is coming to UK TV on March 16 — one day after its US premiere. It will be shown on Sky Atlantic. If you’re already a Sky TV customer, you can watch Westworld season 3 online via the Sky Go app. Fortunately, you can also stream Sky Atlantic without a Sky TV subscription via Now TV. Its “Entertainment Pass” includes the Sky Atlantic channel and costs £8.99 per month. There’s also a 7-day free trial.
Both Sky Go and Now TV are only available in the UK and Ireland. To continue watching while traveling abroad, you’ll need to connect to a server in the UK. In doing so, you’ll obtain a UK IP address, allowing you to watch Westworld season 3 from anywhere.
The good news is that HBO is available in over a dozen countries across Europe. This includes Poland, Norway, and Spain. Prices vary slightly by country but, as an example, an HBO Spain subscription is priced at €8.99 monthly and includes a two-week free trial. Unfortunately, HBO only lets you watch on-demand if you’re not in the US, and as such, the first episode of Westworld season 3 won’t be available until March 16. Also, HBO changes its content based on your location, so a VPN is essential if you’re traveling abroad.
What can we expect from Westworld season 3?
Unlike previous seasons of Westworld which were made up of 10 episodes, Westworld season 3 will consist of eight, 60-minute episodes. The story picks up immediately after the events of season 2. Dolores has escaped Westworld and is in possession of the cores of several hosts, including Bernard’s. Settling in neo-Los Angeles, Dolores will cross paths with Caleb and learn how hosts are treated in the real world. Meanwhile, Maeve finds herself in a World War II world.
Which cast members are returning for Westworld season 3?
Season 3 will see the return of Evan Rachel Wood as Dolores Abernathy, Thandie Newton as Maeve Millay, and Jeffrey Wright as Bernard Lowe. Also back for season 3 are Tessa Thompson (Charlotte Hale), Ed Harris (William / The Man in Black), Luke Hemsworth (Ashley Stubbs), Simon Quarterman (Lee Sizemore), and Rodrigo Santoro (Hector Escaton). We can expect to see some exciting new additions to the cast with Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul as Caleb Nichols, Lena Waithe as Ash, and NFL running back Marshawn Lynch as Giggles.
