I go into more details and provide more options for watching Rick and Morty below.
Where To Watch Rick and Morty Season 5
Below are your options for watch new episodes of Rick and Morty if you don’t have cable. Hulu Live TV is our top recommendation since they also will have all of season 1 through season 4 on-demand, and you can watch new episodes of Season 5 both live when they air at 11 pm eastern or on-demand at your leisure.
Hulu Live TV
Hulu Live TV is your best option for Rick and Morty Season 5. They have Adult Swim in their channel lineup so that you can watch new episodes every Sunday at 11 pm. They will also have on-demand access to season 5 once the new episode airs. The Live TV service is $64.99/month after a 1-week free trial. If you instead opt for the lower-priced Hulu streaming library starting at $5.99/month, you will only have access to seasons 1-4 on-demand. However, the Hulu Streaming Library is included with Hulu Live TV. Therefore a subscription to Hulu Live TV will provide access to every Rick and Morty Episode, including new season 5 episodes.
A subscription to Hulu Live TV includes the following features:
- over 60 channels
- 50 hours of cloud DVR storage (upgradeable)
- stream to two streams at the same time, with an upgrade option for unlimited streams.
- The Hulu on-demand streaming library
- Hulu is available on Android, iOS, Xbox One, 4th Gen Apple TV, Chromecast, Roku, and Amazon Fire TV and stick.
