Downtown Abbey may have the name recognition, but other shows capitalizing on PBS-style storytelling have captivated drama lovers everywhere. Chief among them is A Place to Call Home, the Australian melodrama set in the post-WWII period, complete with all the heartache, family drama, and wealthy matriarch. Here’s how to watch A Place to Call Home online for free.

Thankfully, there’s nothing heartbreaking about setting yourself up to watch A Place to Call Home. The show is available on a number of streaming services that will let you enjoy yourself without bending the knee to a cable company. These first two options start with a seven-day free trial.

If you’re not ready to fully commit to A Place to Call Home, Amazon Prime Video lets you dip your toes in. Even better, if you’re looking for a free way to get started, you can start a seven-day free trial of Acorn TV (the home network of A Place to Call Home) through Amazon Prime Video. After the free trial period, it’s just $4.99 per month for Acorn TV on Amazon. That way, you can finish up the series with season 6 for a lower price than other monthly subscriptions. If you’re using an Amazon Fire TV, you don’t need a Prime subscription to get the app, but you’ll still have to pay the monthly fee.

If you love your European high society dramas, Acorn TV might be a godsend for you. For just $4.99 a month, you’ll get access to every episode of A Place to Call Home, plus similar series like Doc Martin, Murdoch Mysteries, The Brokenwood Mysteries, and more. It’s a healthy mix of older classics, popular newcomers, and some off-the-beaten-path titles. If you’re OK with treating A Place to Call Home like any other streamed content (you only ever “own” it while paying for it each month), then Acorn TV is one of the best options.

On YouTube, watching A Place to Call Home is just as easy as searching for a viral video. You won’t find season 6 there, and the per-season cost is relatively high, but the individual episodes on YouTube are priced cheaper than Amazon. So if it’s a matter of checking the series out, YouTube might be the place to try.

Google Play is another way to test the waters of A Place to Call Home, and it thankfully doesn’t cost more than $19.99 for a full season. The landing page includes text that says season 6 “isn’t available yet,” so it may arrive on the service at a later date.
