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. To me, the opportunity Ballers created for so many others, is the real gold of our show.
I love you, I thank you and enjoy our final season of BALLERS.
This SUNDAY on @HBO.
