Here’s how to watch HBO’s Ballers Season 5 Premiere starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson online with a live stream on your computer or TV.

Ballers returns with its Season 5 premiere tonight at 10:35 p.m. ET on HBO as the series begins it’s final ride into the sunset. According to HBO’s Medium page, season 5 of Ballers will officially be its last. The series received a big boost with Russell Brand joining the roster as Lance Klians, Founder of Sports X last season. Thus, the early announcement of Season 5 being the last is a bit surprising. Although it does make each episode’s impact that much bigger. Which in turn, could draw in casuals who’ve been putting off watching Ballers in a dedicated fashion every week prior.

You can catch HBO’s Ballers Season 5 Episode 1 “Protocol Is for Losers” live online with HBO Now, HBO GO, or with an Amazon Prime HBO Channel subscription.

PlayStation 4 owners can download the HBO NOW or HBO GO to watch on their console, as well as Xbox One owners (HBO NOW, HBO GO). iPhone/iPad IOS users can download the HBO NOW or HBO GO apps, the same for Android users (HBO NOW, HBO GO). Satellite viewers can check out DirecTV to catch HBO’s Ballers live.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson went on Instagram to thank fans for sticking with the series through five seasons.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson:

Cheers to our FINAL SEASON of @HBO’s BALLERS 🥃

My heart 🖤 is full of gratitude to all of you for rockin’ with us every season. You made us HBO’s highest rated comedy for years and most importantly, you helped create and sustain a platform for other actors to have the OPPORTUNITY to work hard, grow and become household names.

Here’s how you can watch AMC’s Better Call Saul Season 5 Premiere live stream online or the old-fashioned way right on your television.

Better Call Saul’s Season 5 Premiere episode “Magic Man” airs Sunday, February 23 on AMC at 10:05 p.m. ET. You can catch Jimmy’s latest chapter (or rather Saul Goodman’s!) online at AMC’s official live stream or with a free seven-day trial from FuboTV. Don’t forget that Better Call Saul’s next Season 5 episode “50%” will also air this following Monday, February 24 at 9 p.m. ET! AMC is going all out with a two-night special to start off the season, on-top of their cornerstone The Walking Dead returning on Sunday.

“Magic Man” will also be available the day after airing on AMC.com. Catch up on previous seasons of Better Call Saul on Netflix if you’re a subscriber, or purchase individual episodes/prior seasons on Amazon. A new option to watch “Magic Man” ad-less is AMC’s Premiere service, which does require a TV provider to login with (not open to Comcast/Xfinity customers at the moment). It has a subscription fee of $4.99 a month or a regular price of $59.99 annually. * It’s currently $29.49 annually on what looks to be a limited time deal to promote The Walking Dead but might extend for a while.

The sneak peek for Better Call Saul’s Season 5 Premiere above has Jimmy McGill legally changing his name to Saul Goodman… Much to the bewilderment of Kim Wexler. Despite being puzzled by Jimmy’s decision to change his name, she doesn’t disapprove of the move. However, Jimmy’s business angle of keeping his old clients doesn’t seem to be the primary reason Kim doesn’t tell him to “slow his roll.”

“I thought I wasting a year of my life! It wasn’t a waste. It was for this!” It appears Kim simply wants Jimmy to be happy post-Chuck’s passing… To take any steps necessary for Jimmy to leap out of the abyss that threatens to pull him back down at any second. The shadow of his brother always looming over the name McGill. Interpretive emotional reasoning rather than Jimmy’s business impulsive logic of “They call the guy they already know!”

“Magic Man” Episode Description:

Now doing business as Saul Goodman, Jimmy unveils an unorthodox strategy for client development that tests Kim’s tolerance of his new legal persona; Lalo searches for the mysterious Michael, only to discover a problem within his own operation.

“Magic Man” is written by Better Call Saul co-creators Vince Gilligan & Peter Gould and directed by Bronwen Hughes. Director Bronwen Hughes also directed episode 10 of The Walking Dead this season for AMC.

Here’s how you can watch the Homeland Season 8 Episode 2 “Catch and Release” live stream online with Showtime Anytime or the old-fashioned way right on your television.

Showtime’s Homeland Season 8 Episode 2 “Catch and Release” airs this Sunday, February 16 on Showtime at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Carrie Mathison’s latest mission will be available to stream live online on the Showtime Anytime service. You can also sign up to Showtime on Amazon to watch the episode post-airing the day next day.

Last week’s Homeland Season 8 Premiere saw a distraught Carrie Mathison doubting her own memory after discovering her inside source in Afghanistan, Roshan, had been eliminated… The cause? According to Roshan’s widow, Sheena, Carrie’s own words naming Roshan as a source leading to his brutal murder… Carrie started to question if she had indeed given up Roshan’s name to the Russians under duress and simply couldn’t remember. She subtly hinted to Mike Dunne of her suspicion, which did her no favors in the ‘Deception Indicated‘ department. However, when she saw Yevgeny Gromov [Costa Ronin] leaving a government meeting ahead of her, things took a grim turn. A dark realization seemed to dawn on her.

In the preview trailer above for Homeland’s latest episode, Carrie Mathison tells Saul Berenson that she saw Yevgeny leave a meeting and wants to ‘roll him up.’ Unfortunately for Carrie, Saul responds back over the phone, “You can’t touch anybody. It’s part of the deal.” Meanwhile, it doesn’t appear that Carrie’s appeal to the Afghan Vice President to walk back “not releasing any prisoners under any circumstances” is having any impact. “Or what?” It appears more than diplomacy will be required to get any results. Meanwhile, Saul suspects Pakistani intelligence and an American convoy faces an ambush. Will cold diplomatic relations between Tanseem Qureishi and Saul Berenson improve? Or continue their spiral into the abyss?

“Catch and Release” Episode Description:

Carrie reconnects with an old ally. Tasneem seeks counsel. Saul finds hope.

Sunday’s latest Homeland episode “Catch and Release” is written by Chip Johannessen [24] & Patrick Harbinson [24] and Directed by Lesli Linka Glatter [Ray Donovan].
