How to watch ‘Deep State’ season 2 for free

If Homeland and 24 taught us anything, it’s that international intrigue makes for thrilling television. Deep State is a new entry in the genre, this time from a British perspective.

Mark Strong stars as former MI6 agent Max Easton who comes out of retirement to tackle new threats. Season 2 brings Walton Goggins, who plays Easton’s American counterpart Nathan Miller, a former CIA agent keeping close tabs on a political crisis in Mali. After four US Special Forces translators are killed in an ambush, Miller must pick up the pieces of a complicated procurement deal, while also struggling to keep his family from tearing apart.

How to watch Deep State for free

Epix is a premium channel but is available on a handful of the major live TV streaming services. When 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 pick, you’ll start with a one-week trial, so you can watch Deep State for free.

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. 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. To gain access to Epix, you will have to pay an extra $5 per month on whichever Sling package you choose. Here’s the complete guide to Sling TV channels.


2) 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. 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. If you want access to Epix, you’ll need to upgrade to the Elite package which is $59.99 per month. One subscription works with up to five devices and provides unlimited cloud DVR storage, which makes it one of the most binge-friendly solutions. (Here are all of PlayStation Vue channels.)


3) YouTube TV

YouTube TV is a great solution for families because one subscription can add up to six accounts. Each account comes with unlimited cloud DVR. There are sports channels like NBCSN, NBA TV, and four ESPN channels. 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. Epix costs an additional $6 per month if you’re looking to watch Deep State. (You can find the full list of YouTube TV channels here.)
