Claire Danes and Co. are back for Season 7 of the critically acclaimed series “Homeland”, and watching any episode from the new season is easy to do.
The Season 7 premiere will be broadcast Sunday, February 11, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Showtime, and subsequent episodes (there are 12 overall in the season) will air on the following Sundays. If you don’t have cable, you can watch the episodes live online as they air or on-demand by signing up for a cable-free, live-TV streaming service, such as Amazon Prime or FuboTV.
Here’s a complete rundown of what you need to know about each service, as well as how to sign up to start watching “Homeland” Season 7 live or on-demand:
