The award-winning HBO drama series Succession has become a pop culture phenomenon since its premiere in 2018.
With its shrewd writing, complex characters, family power dynamics, and satirical take on the ultra-wealthy, the comedy show viewers are curious where they can watch new and old episodes.
Here’s a breakdown of the streaming options for Succession in the US, and the best way to find all episodes at one place.
Stream Succession on Max (formerly HBO Max)
As a HBO original production, Succession streams exclusively on HBO Max. This premium streaming platform is the best place to watch all 3 seasons ad-free and on-demand. HBO Max has the entire season catalog available for streaming in up to 4K quality.
New episodes premiere live on HBO when they air and then get added to HBO Max the next day. An HBO Max subscription costs $9.99 per month with ads or $14.99 per month ad-free.
HBO Cable Channel
Besides HBO Max, viewers can also watch new episodes of the Jeremy Strong series, as they premiere live on the HBO cable TV channel.
So if you have HBO through a cable, satellite or live TV streaming subscription, you can tune in to watch new seasons in real-time. HBO cable channel allows you to watch episodes via On Demand too after they air.
Hulu + HBO Max Add-on
For those who already subscribe to Hulu’s base plan, you can add HBO Max to your package. The HBO Max add-on costs $14.99 per month and gives you full access to HBO’s programming directly in the Hulu interface.
This option lets you consolidate multiple streaming services while still allowing you to watch Succession plus Hulu’s own catalog of movies, shows and originals.
Stream for Free with Max Free Trial
If you want to test out Max to watch the comedy-drama series, they offer new subscribers a 7-day free trial. You’ll get full unlimited access to stream Succession and HBO Max’s entire catalog during the trial. Just be sure to cancel before the trial ends if you don’t want to get charged a subscription fee.
Purchase Episodes & Seasons Digitally
You can buy digital copies of Succession season 1, 2 and 3 episodes to own outright from video retailers like Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV, Vudu and Google Play.
Purchase entire seasons in SD, HD and UHD formats or buy individual episodes. Prices typically range from $1.99-$2.99 per episode or $14.99-$24.99 per season. The main benefit with this option is you can download episodes DRM-free to watch offline.
DVD and Blu-ray
Physical home media releases are also available for fans who want to own Succession on DVD or Blu-ray. Season 1 and 2 box sets are currently out on both DVD and Blu-ray from retailers like Amazon, Target and Walmart.
Season 3 has been confirmed to release on Blu-ray and DVD later this year after the season finishes airing on HBO. Box sets give you the most bonus features like behind-the-scenes footage and commentaries.
If purchasing full seasons digitally or physically is too expensive, consider renting Succession online. Platforms like Amazon Prime Video, Vudu and Google Play allow you to rent entire seasons or single episodes for 48 hour periods.
Rental fees are cheaper, usually from $1.99-$3.99 per episode. This gives you affordable short-term access to watch the show.
So whether you want to stream, buy or rent Succession, there are numerous facile options for both cable subscribers and cord-cutters. HBO Max remains the best streaming home for the series with its exclusive access and comprehensive catalogue.
For limited budgets, free trials or rentals allow temporary viewing access. And physical media or digital purchases give permanent ownership for die-hard fans eager to rewatch episodes and seasons.
Apple TV also offers the option to rent or purchase individual episodes or seasons of the Roy family drama. If you have an Apple TV+ subscription, you can watch award winning shows like Slow Horses, Black Bird, Dickinson, For All Mankind, Ted Lasso, The Morning Show, etc.
Is Succession on Netflix?
Unfortunately, Netflix haven’t secured the rights to Succession. So, while you’ll find plenty of other shows to keep you entertained on Netflix like House of Cards, Billions, Dead to Me, Arrested Development, Bloodline, etc., the Roy family’s drama remains exclusive to HBO Max.
Does Amazon have Succession?
While not included in your Prime subscription, you can rent or purchase individual episodes or seasons on Amazon Prime Video.
Succession’s sharp writing, compelling characters, and Shakespearean family drama make it a must-watch for fans of complex and darkly comedic shows.
While HBO Max is the most convenient and comprehensive option for US viewers, the alternative paths mentioned above offer some flexibility for those with different preferences or budgets.
So, grab your popcorn, choose your platform, and prepare to be captivated by the Roy family’s ruthless pursuit of power and wealth. Just remember, in the game of thrones, you win or you die…or you get a streaming subscription.
