‘Rick and Morty’ Live Stream: How to Watch the Season 3 Episode 4 Premiere Online for Free

Rick and Morty Live Stream

Adult Swim Rick and Morty Live Stream

Rick and Morty Season 3 has returned with “Vindicators 3: The Return of Worldender.” Last week, we finally got to see Pickle Rick in action and the episode definitely did not disappoint. This week, we’re moving on to what may be an Avengers parody, and we can’t wait. The episode starts at 11:30 p.m. Eastern on Adult Swim. Can’t get to a television or don’t have cable? Then watch it via live stream! For details on how to watch Rick and Morty Season 3 Episode 4, live online or on a mobile device, check out the streaming options below.

UPDATE: As warned, AdultSwim.com didn’t stream the episode yet again. Surprise, surprise. So check out the other options for streaming Rick and Morty listed below the first AdultSwim section. AdultSwim has added a direct link to watch the episode, but it looks like that link won’t work without a cable login either. Want to watch the fake live stream that AdultSwim showed instead of Rick and Morty on Sunday night? You can see it here.

Will ‘Rick and Morty’ Be Streamed for Free on AdultSwim.com?

UPDATE: Nope. Adult Swim has officially announced they aren’t streaming the episode, as feared. Check the other options below this section for other ways to watch the episode.


We’ll be honest here… Considering all the glitches that AdultSwim.com has faced with its free online streaming of Rick and Morty for episodes 2 and 3, there’s a real concern that if you depend on AdultSwim.com for tonight’s live stream, you may find yourself wanting to scream, “I am in great pain, please help me!” If it works, it’ll be a great option. But the last two weeks gave fans a lot of problems and errors. In fact, last week’s episode didn’t even start livestreaming until halfway through, leaving frustrated fans watching a live stream Fish Center for half an hour instead.

So here’s the recommendation. Have this option up and ready to go, but also have a backup ready (one of the options listed below) in case this one doesn’t  work. Or just switch to the backup completely. If the live stream works, it will be at this link.

If you miss the live stream airing of Episode 4 and you’re in the U.S., you can come back to AdultSwim.com later to watch the episode after it’s aired. We’ll post the direct link in this story as soon as it’s available. In the meantime, you can watch Episode 3 at this link.

If You Live in the U.S. & Do Not Have Cable

If you’re in the United States and looking to legally watch the show live online, but you do not have access to a cable or satellite pay-TV login, you can watch Rick and Morty via Sling TV.

1. Click here to create a Sling account.

2. Select the Orange package, which costs $20 per month after your free trial is over.

The service’s Orange package, which includes Cartoon Network/Adult Swim, costs $20 per month. But if you’re looking for a way to watch the show for free, you can do so with Sling’s free 7-day trial.

If You Live in the U.S. & Have Access to a Cable or Satellite Login

Adult Swim provides two ways to livestream the show for anyone who has a cable or satellite subscription that includes the channel. (PlayStation Vue service may also count as a cable provider for these options only.) You can watch via Simulcast or On Demand. This may not be available in all countries and typically doesn’t include closed captioning.

(Note: some viewers have complained that these options don’t always work, and the video may just sit and load. You may need to disable browser extensions first. Keep other options available just in case.)

Adult Swim SimulCast:

Viewers in the U.S. with a cable log-in can watch Rick and Morty via livestream. This is Adult Swim’s on-air broadcasting simulcast and you can access it here. You’ll be asked to select your cable service provider first. Then you’ll be asked to sign in and then you’ll be able to watch the episode.

Adult Swim on Demand: 

Viewers in the U.S. with a cable log-in can also stream Rick and Morty live via Adult Swim on Demand to watch an episode at any time, even if it’s not live. Got to the Rick and Morty page online where the episodes are playing (here.)
