Liev Schreiber is one of modern film’s biggest chameleons, popping up in geek culture properties like X-Men, Scream, and even Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Where the man truly shines, however, is the acclaimed Ray Donovan, the tale of an Irish-American working through the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles as a fixer. Ray Donovan season 6 is here, and if you need to catch up or just watch this latest season, we’ve got you covered. Here’s how to watch Ray Donovan online for free

How to watch Ray Donovan season 6 for free

1) Sling TV

No service has pivoted to meet the needs of users who were sick of pointlessly massive cable packages than Sling TV. Offering users a selection of a la carte channel packages, Sling TV only charges you for the channels you want to watch. That includes add-on premium movie channels like Showtime. At $10 per month, Sling TV offers Showtime for the same amount as everyone else, but its streaming TV service is worth considering. (Here’s a complete guide to Sling TV channels.)


2) Amazon Prime Video with Showtime

FuboTV is an international sports-focused streaming TV option, with a surprisingly robust package of entertainment channels that has only gotten better with time. It also has the best local TV coverage of any online streaming TV service. Since its introduction, FuboTV’s biggest weakness has been its lack of premium movie options. That’s changed with the introduction of Showtime to FuboTV. Users who want to watch Ray Donovan and English Premier League should give FuboTV a look. (Here’s the complete FuboTV channels list.)
