How To Watch “Westworld” Online In The UK: Seasons 2 And 1

Dolores, Maeve and the Man in Black are back! HBO’s Westworld theme park is finally re-opened, with the second season of the mesmerising show created by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy. 

UK fans, who’ve been waiting like the rest of the world for two years, probably want to know how and where they can watch Westworld online or streaming on their telly, legally, WITHOUT an expensive Sky/Cable subscription.

Westworld is an American TV series based on Michael Crichton’s 1973 film. It tells the story of a futuristic wild-west theme park, populated with androids, where visitors can interact with the “characters”, doing practically whatever they like (including sex and murder.) When the androids start getting sentient, things get dangerous…

The show stars Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, Ed Harris and many others in an impressive ensemble cast. Season 1 was highly praised, and saw excellent ratings.

Season 2 of Westworld debuted in the US on April 22, 2018, and simultaneously in the UK (though it was already April 23 here), on NOW TV and Sky Atlantic. You can watch the new episodes on demand every Monday at around 3am.

Where Can I Watch Westworld In The UK – Past And Current Episodes?

In the UK, Westworld normally airs on Sky Atlantic – but as Cord Cutters, we’re here to talk about your other viewing options – those not involving a full-on Sky (or Virgin, or BT) subscription.

These are your major options:

1. NOW TV – Season 1 and 2

Sky’s on-demand service offers a cheaper price over Sky’s regular TV offerings – and most importantly, without a long contract.

Season 1 of Westworld is currently available as a box-set on NOW TV’s Entertainment Pass – so you can binge it all up before beginning Season 2. And don’t forget – you can now get a 14 Days Free Trial of NOW TV!

Season 2 started airing on NOW TV on April 23, and each new episode will be available on Monday, shortly after its US airing (at around 3am.)

Pros

  • Cheap, monthly subscription (£7.99 a month) – includes Westworld and many other programmes.

  • 14 Days Free Trial

Cons

  • Picture Quality: Only gets up to 720p (should change by the end of the year.)

2. Amazon Prime Video – Season 1

Amazon’s video on demand library offers Season 1 of Westworld for now, but not as part of their Prime subscription – only as a separate one-time purchase.

Writer and news editor based in London, I cut the TV cord back in 2014 and never looked back. I watch A LOT of TV, and thankfully I can choose whatever I want to watch without depending on archaic channels.
