Set in the 1980s and the early days of the crack cocaine epidemic, Snowfall is a drama series that chronicles the rise and ultimate dramatic impact it had on the culture. It weaves together the street market, international crime organizations, and background players moving the drug into Los Angeles, from Mexican and Nicaraguan crime lords to the street hustlers and even dirty CIA agents. The show is now entering its sixth and final season. Whether you want to watch new episodes from season 6 or catch up on past seasons, this article will tell you how to watch any episode of Snowfall, even if you don’t have cable TV.
- When Snowfall airs: Snowfall airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET

Best Place to Watch Snowfall Without Cable
Hulu is the best streaming service for watching new and old episodes of Snowfall. If you don’t mind waiting one day, you can watch new episodes of Snowfall season 6 on Hulu On-Demand every Thursday. All episodes from previous seasons of Snowfall are also available on Hulu’s on-demand service. The price for Hulu on-demand starts at only $7.99 per month after a 30-day free trial.
That’s a considerable saving compared to the Hulu + Live TV service which starts at $76.99. Since you only have to wait one extra day to watch new episodes of Snowfall, I recommend picking up the much more affordable Hulu on-demand service to watch Snowfall. However, if you must watch Snowfall at the time it airs on FX, then you will need to go with Hulu + Live TV service. (Hulu On-Demand is included with Hulu+Live TV)
Below are the various packages Hulu offers that will allow you to watch every episode of Snowfall:
- Hulu with commercials ($7.99 per month): This is the least expensive plan Hulu offers. This will allow you to watch the current and all past seasons of Snowfall on demand. New episodes of Snowfall are available to stream on Hulu one day after they air on FX (Thursdays). This package also provides access to the entire Hulu library, the on-demand Hulu feature providing various TV shows on network TV, cable, and all the Hulu Originals. There are commercials throughout the shows. This plan also allows subscribers to receive 1-year of Hulu for a discounted price.
- Hulu – commercial-free ($7.99 per month): For $17.99 per month, you get Hulu on-demand without commercials. (Due to network arrangements, Grey’s Anatomy, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and How To Get Away With Murder will always have commercials)
- Hulu + Live TV ($76.99 per month): This plan provides the Hulu Streaming Library (with ads) and linear TV service for over 65 channels typically found on network and cable television. The lineup includes FX, so you can watch new episodes of Snowfall when they air on FX every Wednesday. All episodes of Snowfall will be available on-demand with this service as well. This plan provides the ability to watch on 2 devices at once, 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage, and more.
