‘Rick and Morty’ Live Stream: How to Watch the Season 3 Episode 5 Premiere Online for Free

Rick and Morty Live Stream

Adult Swim Rick and Morty Live Stream

Rick and Morty Season 3 is back tonight with a new installment, a Rick and Jerry adventure that fans have been waiting for called “The Whirly Dirly Conspiracy.” But if you want to make sure you can watch a real live stream tonight and not a real fake live stream, you’ll want to keep reading.

Last week, we enjoyed a Vindicators 3 episode that brought a lot of unexpected laughs, twists, and turns. This week will likely be even better. 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 5, live online or on a mobile device, check out all the streaming options below.

Because of some trouble fans have had with the AdultSwim.com live stream (and that’s an understatement), we have a lot of other options for you to see the episode, listed below the first section. After the episode airs, come back to this story and take our poll at the end of the article, letting us know if you liked the episode or if you didn’t. 

AdultSwim.com Provided “Real Fake Live Streams”

Hey! Are you tired of real live streams cluttering up your computer, where you open them and they actually work? Get on down to Real Fake Live Streams at AdultSwim.com. Fill your whole screen up with them. None of them play the show. Don’t even hesitate. Don’t even worry. And don’t even give it a second thought.

Rick & Morty: real fake doors2014-03-23T05:54:36.000Z

Last week fans were treated to a real life “Real Fake Live Stream,” when AdultSwim.com decided to show some employees reading a Rick and Morty script rather than the actual Rick and Morty episode on its live stream. If you’re a cable subscriber, you can still use their live streams. But AdultSwim.com is no longer streaming the show for free anymore. (And honestly, that’s OK. It’s a great show and if fans support it, the show can have another season. But fans were upset that the live stream didn’t explain what was happening at the time.)

But don’t fear! Here are some real NOT-fake live stream options below.

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. Here’s how to access the stream. (Note: You can only live stream Rick and Morty this way, you can’t watch the episode On Demand via Sling after it’s aired.)

On the Web:

Viewers in the United States can watch the show through Sling TV, an online streaming service that provides access to select channels for a monthly fee, but offers a free 7-day trial that will allow you to watch the show for free if you sign up.
Adult Swim is available through the basic Orange package, which costs $20 per month after the free trial ends.

Here’s how to sign up:

1. Click here to create a Sling account.

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

3. Enter your billing information and create an account. Again: You will not be charged until after you’ve completed the free 7-day trial.

4. Download the Sling app on your computer, and begin watching the show.

With an App:

If you sign up for the free Sling trial, you can watch the show via the Sling app, which you can download for free in the App store or the Google Play store.

There’s also a Sling app for Roku, Chromecast, Nexus player, ZTE and XBox One. Click here for a full list of compatible devices.

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.

Here’s how to sign up:

1. Click here to create a Sling account.

2. Select the Orange package.

3. Enter your billing information and create an account. Again: You will not be charged until after you’ve completed the free 7-day trial.

4. Download the Sling app in the App store or the Google Play store.

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.)
