For those who want to watch the new season, but you don’t have a cable subscription or login info, you may be looking for other ways to watch the show online. If you don’t have cable or can’t get to a TV, you can watch a live stream of A&E on your computer, phone or streaming device via one of the following cable-free, live-TV streaming services:
A&E is one of 75-plus channels included in the main Fubo bundle. You can sign up for a free 7-day trial right here, and you can then watch a live stream of the show on your computer via the FuboTV website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the FuboTV app.
If you can’t watch live, FuboTV comes with 30 hours of Cloud DVR (with the ability to upgrade to 500 hours), as well as a “72-Hour Lookback” feature, which allows you to watch most shows up to three days after they air even if you forgot to record them.

You can sign up for “Hulu with Live TV” right here, and you can then watch a live stream of the show on your computer via the Hulu website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the Hulu app.
If you can’t watch live, “Hulu with Live TV” comes with both its extensive on-demand library (which has most shows available after they air) and 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage (with the ability to upgrade to “Enhanced Cloud DVR,” which gives you 200 hours of DVR space and the ability to fast forward through commercials).
A&E is included in Philo’s main 43-channel bundle, which is the cheapest among all streaming services if you plan on keeping it long-term.

Recently, Remini aired a Jehovah’s Witnesses special, on which she stated, “I thought Jehovah’s Witnesses were just nice people knocking on doors. We have received many letters, [saying], ‘Please look into the Jehovah’s Witnesses.'”
With her new season of Scientology and the Aftermath, Remini says that her goal is to make sure she makes known any information that she finds to help put an end to any abuses going on in Scientology. Season 3 will focus on the church’s tax-exempt status and the season’s purpose is “to go right after the heart of the church’s power and resources and challenge fundamentally the foundation upon which they stand.”
Episode 1 of the new season is titled “Star Witness” and the premiere description reads, “The heavily guarded Scientology compound known as Gold Base in Riverside County, California, houses up to 1,000 members of the church’s elite inner core; Valerie Haney tells how conditions at the base led her to contemplate suicide.” Episode 2 is titled “The Disappeared”. The plot synopsis of this episode states, “Family members report trouble getting access to loved ones at Scientology’s Gold Base in Riverside County, California; Leah and Mike lend support to a niece of a former high-ranking Scientology executive as she travels to check on her uncle.”
When talking more about what to expect on season 3 of the show, Remini told Entertainment Weekly that, “We’re approaching season 3 a little bit differently because, like our viewers, Mike [Rinder] and I have been working diligently to try to effect some change … The madness doesn’t end just because we’re not rolling on it. These are people’s real lives, so we keep getting asked the same question: How does this keep happening? So, we had to follow [Scientology leader] David Miscavige’s words and follow the money. We’re trying to not only show the public how they get away with doing the things they do to people, but why? Who made this possible? And that’s really the IRS.”
Remini explained that, “They bullied the IRS into giving them tax-exempt status. We’re trying to let the IRS know that we know that it’s time they took some frickin’ responsibility for what they allow by giving this organization tax-exempt money to do these things.”
Tune in to see Remini’s journey with co-star Mike Rinder, in delving into the inner-workings of Scientology.
