Tonight is the premiere of a new HBO series called Euphoria. Created by Sam Levinson and executive produced by Drake, this series is destined to generate a lot of controversy, memes, and conversations. The series premieres tonight at 10 p.m. Eastern (9 p.m Central), Sunday, June 16, 2019. You’ll want to watch live so you’re not spoiled on anything.
If you don’t have cable, you can watch a live stream of HBO on your computer, phone, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV or another streaming device via one of the following live-TV streaming services. Many of them have free trials, which we’ll list below, that will let you watch for free:

With either option, you can watch on your computer via the Amazon website, or on your phone (Android and iPhone compatible), tablet, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 or another streaming device via the Amazon Video app.
Whether you already have Hulu or you want to sign up for a new subscription, HBO is available as an add-on to either Hulu or Hulu with Live TV.

HBO Now is HBO’s standalone streaming service and provides all of HBO’s programming via the internet. The service costs $14.99 per month — but it offers a seven-day free trial. You must cancel before the end of the trial to avoid charges. To use the service, download the HBO Now App on your phone or tablet. It’s available in the App Store, Google Play store and Amazon Appstore, and more.
If you have a cable subscription that includes HBO, you can stream via HBO GO. That service is free to use for anyone with a satellite or cable package that includes HBO. However, check the service first because not all cable companies have agreements in place to work with HBO Go.
‘Euphoria’ Premiere Preview
Euphoria is already pushing boundaries and it hasn’t even premiered yet. The official description for episode one reads: “Series premiere. Rue is a teenage girl who experiences, along with her high school classmates, the ups and downs of love and friendship in a world of drugs, sex, violence and social networks.”
According to HBO, this series navigates love and friendships and is an adaptation of an Israeli series by the same name. The series is produced in partnership with A24.
HBO’s description of the series reads: “The coming-of-age narrative, exploring the teenage landscape of substance-enhanced parties and anxiety-ridden day-to-day life with empathy and candor. The series follows 17-year-old Rue Bennett (Zendaya), a drug addict fresh from rehab, who’s struggling to make sense of her future. Her life changes dramatically when she meets Jules Vaughn (Hunter Schafer), a trans girl who recently moved to town following her parents’ divorce, and like Rue is searching for where she belongs.”
The cast includes Zendaya, Maude Apatow, Angus Cloud, Eric Dane, Alexa Demie, Jacob Elordi, Barbie Ferreira, Nika King, Storm Reid, Hunter Schafer, Algee Smith, and Sydney Sweeney.
