Whether this new nine-episode season is the best of the series so far or not, tons of viewers are expected to tune in. However, a lot of the younger fans, the cordcutter generation, who got hooked on Prison Break when it made waves on Netflix long after its run from 2005-2009 on Fox, don’t have cable TV. Thankfully, there are many other ways to watch if you’re not able to find the episodes for free using your naughty web intuitions.


The best way for cordcutters is Hulu. If you don’t have cable TV, you’re probably familiar with the service. Hulu has a deal with Fox and Prison Break Season 5 trailers have been released on the streaming service, so you can expect new episode to appear on Hulu the next day. New to Hulu? Sign up and get a free trial. Afterword, the cost per month is the same as Netflix at $7.99.

Fox Now

Find a friend or call your parents to get cable login info. This is the best way to watch live, either through the Fox Now app or your cable service’s online Live TV platform. Download the Fox Now app, available for pretty much every device imaginable. Or, watch in your browser at on the Fox official site.

Sling TV

Unfortunately, local channels like Fox are only available in select markets on Sling, but give it a shot. If you've never used Sling before, sign up for a free trial. If you really want to work the system, sign up for Hulu’s free trial after Sling expires to keep watching Prison Break. Though it’s important to note, the advantage of Sling TV over Hulu is that you can still watch the episode live as it airs.

Buy Episode

Services like Amazon and Apple allow you to purchase and download individual episodes the day after they air. If you’re not all tech-savvy, this is probably the easiest way, and may be worth forking up the couple dollars per episode.
