How to watch ‘Claws’ for free

The manicurists at the Nail Artisan salon in a small Florida county are hiding some serious secrets and spilling some hot tea. 

Four of the manicurists don’t just pull off polished mani-pedis. They’ve dipped they toes into the seedy underbelly of organized crime, laundering money for a local pain clinic. The team is occasionally at each other’s throats, and each member is just as fierce as the last. Polly Marks is a pathological liar, burglar, and a professional con-artist whose loyalty knows no bounds. Annalise “Quiet Ann” Zayas’ origin story is built on tragedy and heartbreak, which makes her role as the pack’s muscle pretty apt. Virginia Loc is a former stripper who proved her dedication to do whatever it takes to serve the pack, even if it means actually having to perform manicures. The wolf mother who keeps the pack in check is Desna Simms, a nail salon owner determined to rise above her personal struggles to take care of her girls and her family.

Ever since they got involved with the central Florida underworld, there have been quite a few back-stabbings, heartbreaks, and even a few murders. Claws returns for its third season, with even higher stakes, as Desna and the pack juggle their tricky alliance with the Russian mafia. 

Here’s everything you need to know to watch Claws online for free.

How to watch Claws online for free

TNT is available on all six of the major live TV streaming services. When you’re trying to decide which one is best for you, you’ll want to weigh the cost, the other channels you’ll receive, and the compatible devices for streaming. Thankfully, no matter which service you decide to try, you’ll be able to start with a one-week trial, so you can watch Claws for free. For a more complete rundown, check out our guide to Sling TV competitors.

1) Sling TV

For a more à la carte service, look to Sling TV. It offers two cable packages, Sling Orange and Sling Blue, both of which cost $25 per month. TNT is available on both packages. 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. Here’s the complete guide to Sling TV channels.


2) Hulu with Live TV

Hulu with Live TV

Hulu with 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 almost 60 channels to flip through, including HGTV, a full suite of ESPN channels, Cartoon Network, FX, and even deep cuts like Nat Geo Wild and Syfy. Here’s the complete list of Hulu Live TV channels.



3) FuboTV

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, and even outdoor sports like rock climbing. But no worries, all the great cable channels you’re after are present too, including Viceland, Bravo, TBS, and IFC. Here’s the complete FuboTV channels list.


4) PlayStation Vue

If you have a PS4 and are into the idea of having your gaming and streaming needs met in the same place, PlayStation Vue is made for you. Jumping from your favorite game to your favorite show is seamless, and controlling it is as intuitive as playing an actual game. Your PS4 controller is your remote, after all. Still, you don’t need a PS4 to enjoy this service. You can also use a Roku, Amazon Fire devices, and even Kodi. Plus, you’ll get awesome channels like AMC, BBC America, and Bravo in PlayStation Vue’s entry-level package. One subscription works with up to five devices, all with unlimited cloud DVR storage, which makes it one of the most binge-friendly solutions. (Here are all of PlayStation Vue channels.)


5) YouTube TV

YouTube TV offers more than 60 popular cable networks, including local channels. Among them are sports channels including ESPN and FS1, entertainment destinations like FXX and TBS, and even a handful of Spanish language channels like Telemundo and NBC Universo. One YouTube TV subscription lets you add up to six accounts, each with unlimited cloud DVR. (You can find the full list of YouTube TV channels here.)


How to watch Claws episodes

  • Devices: Amazon Fire Stick, Fire TV, Fire tablets, and Fire phone; Roku, Google TV, TiVo, Nvidia Shield, PlayStation 3 and 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Wii

Unfortunately, only season 2 is available to buy on Amazon Video. Individual episodes are available for $2.99, or you can get the entire season for $14.99.


2) TNT website and app

Many cable channels let you live stream directly from their site, and TNT is no different. Simply go to the channel’s website, select a video to watch, and them fill in your login information from the above services when prompted. If you want to stream on the move, we suggest downloading the TNT app. The same login from the website will work here to watch new episodes of Lifetime shows and movies. Unfortunately, Sling TV won’t work for this.
