How to stream ‘Homeland’ without cable

There’s no drama more captivating than the delicate intricacies of the American deep state. Homeland follows the antiheroes who ride the line to keep the U.S. safe from foreign and domestic terrors. Claire Danes star as CIA case officer Carrie Matheson, who digs up conspiracies while juggling her own personal demons and murky past. 

Like most political corruptions, the rot rises all the way to the top. In her misadventures, Carrie takes on Jihadists, foreign intelligence officers, and even the President of the United States. Plus, Homeland has a cast of acting giants that are required in a show dealing with such serious topics including Mandy Patinkin, Damien Lewis, Morena Baccarin, and even Academy Award winner F. Murray Abraham. Each season is more thrilling than the last, but sadly, the show will end this year with the premiere of its eighth season. Now’s your chance to catch up on one of Showtime’s best action drama in years.

Here’s how to watch Homeland without cable for free.
