Westworld is a show about a Wild West theme park, peopled with lifelike robots that guests can live out their fantasies with, both heroic and romantic. What the robots think about that gets more important as the show goes on. If you’re wondering how to watch Westworld, we’ll help you track it down.
Westworld stars Anthony Hopkins as an egotistical genius and features a cast of robots going through existential crises as they suffer at the whims of the park’s more unpleasant visitors. It’s dark, gritty and NSFW, so you won’t want to watch it with granny around, though she’ll probably watch it herself as soon as your back is turned.
Westworld season 1 and 2 are out already, with season 3 hot on their heels. There are several ways to view it, such as streaming, Kodi and torrenting.

Watch Westworld Online
One of the easiest ways to watch Westworld is through online streaming services. Amazon carries the first two seasons in many countries. In the U.S. you can watch it for $3.99 an episode or subscribe to HBO for $14.99 after you’ve finished the free seven-day trial. In some countries at the time of writing, such as Japan, it’s free to Amazon Prime Video subscribers.
Our how to watch Amazon Prime Video article is a great place to start if you’re interested in trying the service.
If you can’t find a service that carries the show in your country, there are ways to watch it regardless. A virtual private network can let you access the internet while appearing to be from a different place than where you are. If the show isn’t available to you locally, connect from somewhere else with our best VPN for Amazon Prime Video guide.
That may or may not be legal, depending on where you are and which country you’re piping in to, so be careful. We wouldn’t dream of suggesting that laws written by corporate lobbyists carry less moral weight than those about murder and theft.
Some streaming services will detect when you’re using a VPN and block you, but just because you can’t get in with one service doesn’t mean you can’t do so with another. Shop around, or save yourself time and read our best VPN for streaming article.
Shows on the major streaming services come and go, so if you can’t find Westworld on Amazon Prime Video, check what’s available elsewhere. It isn’t currently on Netflix or Hulu. If you need to break through any blocks, check out our ExpressVPN review, the best service for getting past any digital walls.
You don’t have to stream it because it’s available on DVD and Blu-ray. Though regular Netflix doesn’t carry the show, its DVD rental service does. You may even be able to find it in a shop (remember those?).
Watch Westworld Online for Free
You can also find shows streaming for free on websites such as Couchtuner. Europix is another popular streaming website, and you may be aware of others. Those websites are risky to use, so it’s worth making sure your computer is protected from nasties before visiting them. Take a look at our best antivirus roundup to see which software gives you the best protection.
You might get fed up with pop-ups when checking those websites, so take a look at our best pop-up blocker article. Be wary of handing over private information, too. Our how to protect your privacy guide will give you a few tips.
Watch Westworld Via Kodi
Kodi is a media platform that lets you stream video from many sources. There are all sorts of ways to use it. Fortunately, we have a wealth of articles to help you. Our best Kodi builds article or Kodi guide are good places to start.
Tools such as Kodi let you organize and manage streams on your TV or other media device. The websites offering streams are often the same ones we discuss when talking about free streaming, so, again, caution is advised.
Some are legally questionable, so use them at your own risk and try to avoid dodgy looking sources. Connecting through a VPN, such as those in our best VPN for Kodi article, is a sensible precaution.
Where to Find Westworld Torrents
Torrents are a great way to access files on the net. Westworld won’t be out of copyright for another 40 to 60 years, depending on where you live and whether large corporations further tighten their grip on our legislators’ throats in the years to come.
If you’re not sure whether it is legal to use torrent sites in your area, or for any particular show, take a look at our is torrenting illegal guide for advice.
If you’re considering torrenting, look at our best VPN for torrenting article for hints on how to do it safely.
In Westworld, new technology promises much, but reality doesn’t always pan out as smoothly as expected. That isn’t dissimilar to the internet, where the dream of free and open communication has given way to a minefield of spyware, cybercrime and legalese.
As with Westworld, it isn’t always clear if the bad guys are the cowboys firing their guns or those running things from their ivory towers.
A few years ago, you might’ve thought an evil corporation using technology maliciously was the stuff of fiction. Now, we know better. If you want to keep tabs on what our real life evil overlords are doing, take a look at our latest State of the Cloud article.
As we’ve seen there are lots of ways to watch Westworld. Some are legal and some may not be depending on where you live. There are many good VPN options, such as those in our best VPN article. Kodi is also a good choice.
There’s a lot of great TV at the moment, so there’s never been a better time to take advantage of the various ways to watch it. If you’ve finished Westworld and you’re after something else to watch, have a look at our how to watch Black Panther and how to watch The Handmaid’s Tale articles.
