Bong Joong-ho is the king of class-conscious film making, and he’s got an Oscar to prove it. Before Parasite made him a household name, he thrilled audiences with dystopian action film Snowpiercer.
After the world falls into an ice age after a climate change fix goes horribly wrong, the remnants of society hop on a train that circumnavigates the snowy wasteland. Naturally, the class divides are as harsh as they were before perpetual winter hit. Those at the front of the train live lives of luxury and comfort, while those at the back struggle to survive. But how did it all begin? Snowpiercer the TV series is a prequel to the 2013 action hit and proves to be just as thrilling.
Here’s everything you need to know to stream Snowpiercer.

Snowpiercer TV Show Reviews
What the critics are saying
- “Though many of its 1,001 cars are cast in a familiar mold, Snowpiercer still manages to find new ways to interrogate power structures, as well as build up steam—or rather, power the eternal engine—for a second season of quietly compelling stories. Its style might not match its ambition, but after an arduous trek, Snowpiercer mostly proves to be worth the wait.” –Danette Chavez, AV Club
- ” Indeed, in our world, people have not grown notably more articulate since the pandemic began — quite the opposite, in fact. It also feels like a show that’s working to create counterpoint between a backdrop that’s so far out on a limb of oddity that its action needs to be extra prosaic for balance. The result is watchable, but not much more.” –Daniel D’Addario

+Hulu (no ads)
Hulu Live TV is one of the most popular ways to stream live TV, perhaps because you gain access to a massive library of on-demand content including classic and current TV shows, movies, not to mention Hulu’s original programming. As far as live-streaming goes, you’ll have a ton of local, entertainment, and sports channels to flip through, including HGTV, a full suite of ESPN channels, Cartoon Network, FX, and even deep cuts like Nat Geographic and Syfy.
FuboTV was built from the ground up with sports fans in mind. There are different channel packages available whether you’re looking for basketball, soccer, golf, or even outdoor sports like rock climbing. But no worries, all the great cable channels you’re after are here too, including Viceland, Bravo, and IFC.
|Sling Orange & Blue||$45|
For a more à la carte service, look to Sling TV. It offers two cable packages, Sling Orange and Sling Blue, each of which costs $30 per month. If you grab them both (Sling Orange + Blue) you can save $10 per month. Sling Blue offers more bang for your buck with over 40 channels, including sports necessities like FS1, NBCSN, and NFL Network. You’ll also gain access to the usual cable mainstays like Food Network, Discovery, Cartoon Network, SYFY, and FXX. Whichever package you choose, you can save $10 on your first month. Here’s the complete guide to Sling TV channels.
There’s a good chance that you’re already looking to AT&T for your wireless needs. The second you sign up, you’ll gain instant access to 45+ channels, including local channels and even free HBO in the Plus and Max channel suites. Plus, it comes with CloudDVR, which lets you record up to 20 hours of TV per month. One account works on two devices, but you can add more devices for only $5.
YouTube TV is a great solution for families because one subscription can add up to six accounts, and each account comes with unlimited cloud DVR. You can’t beat the variety, either: There are sports channels like NBCSN, NBA TV, and four ESPN channels, while Disney, Disney XD, Disney Junior, and Cartoon Network will keep any kid (or kid at heart) busy for hours. It also comes with a few Spanish-language channels like Telemundo and NBC Universo. AMC, BBC America, and IFC are there too, so you won’t miss out on all that prestige TV.
