You can watch ‘American Gods’ without cable—here’s how
Want to watch ‘American Gods’ without cable? No problem.
The showdown between the Old Gods and the New Gods is about to begin.
On April 30, fans will finally be able to watch American Gods, Starz’s highly anticipated TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s award-winning novel from showrunners Bryan Fuller (Hannibal) and Michael Green (Logan). Featuring an all-star cast and stunning visuals, it’s already looking to be a powerhouse in an April lineup full of incredible TV.
Starz is a premium cable channel that you can add to your cable subscription. But don’t worry cordcutters: There are still ways to legally watch American Gods without cable.
How to watch ‘American Gods’
If you’re not in the U.S., you’ll need to use Amazon Prime Video (which has purchased the rights to air American Gods for dozens of countries around the world). American viewers have a few different options.
U.S.: Starz.com and/or Starz App
After years of complaints from customers wanting access to premium cable giants like HBO, Showtime, and Starz without having to pay for cable, they finally came up with a solution. Starz launched its own streaming service last year, which gives subscribers access to its collection of shows, movies, specials, and documentaries.
Starz’s standalone subscription costs $8.99 per month after a seven-day free trial, which you can sign up for directly through Starz’s website or via the Starz App (iOS, Android, Roku, Amazon Fire TV). Starz does offer livestreaming, so you can tune into American Gods as soon as it debuts.
U.S.: Starz subscription on Amazon Prime
Starz is one of the many streaming services you can purchase through Amazon Prime.
You won’t save any money getting it through Amazon versus Starz itself. It’s $8.99 per month no matter which way you go, and for Amazon, the price comes on top of the cost of Prime membership. If you’re already a Prime member and stream through it frequently, however, it might be the more convenient option.
International: Amazon Prime Video
You’ll need an Amazon Prime account to watch American Gods, which will have episodes available the day after they air in the U.S. (American Gods premieres on Starz on April 30, while Amazon Prime gets it May 1.) This covers dozens of countries outside the U.S.

Still not sure?
Gaiman, who’s been fielding questions for some time now, shared a handy chart so you can see your options depending on where you’re located, along with which countries have American Gods available with Amazon Prime Video.
Whether it’s April 30 or May 1, it’s your day.
