All previous seasons (seasons 1-6) are available on-demand on Hulu’s Streaming Library and Max. Hulu’s streaming library starts at $7.99 per month after a 30-day free trial, while Max subscriptions start at $9.99 per month.
Hulu Live TV includes Cartoon Network, the network airing Adult Swim, so you can watch new episodes from season 7 of Rick and Morty, but it includes the Hulu Streaming Library as well as Rick and Morty seasons 1-6, making Hulu Live TV the only way you can stream all seven seasons of Rick and Morty.
Read on for more details and more options.
Best Options To Watch Rick and Morty Season 7
Hulu Live TV carries Adult Swim on Cartoon Network, so you can watch new episodes of Rick and Morty. For $76.99 per month, Hulu Live TV includes the Hulu streaming library, which also provides the previous six seasons of Rick and Morty.
The next best option is Sling TV, which will allow you to watch season 7 episodes of Rick and Morty on Adult Swim with either Sling’s Blue or Orange Channel package for $40 per month. However, they won’t carry episodes from previous seasons on-demand. DIRECTV STREAM and YouTube TV are similar to Sling in that they will have new episodes of Rick and Morty season 7, but not episodes from previous seasons. However, those two services cost you about $30 more than Sling TV. Below are more details on each of these services.
