Better Call Saul's season 3 premiere is free to stream for everyone

Ever since Breaking Bad ended its run in 2013, the closest we have had to that seminal series is AMC’s Better Call Saul spinoff. Following the recent live airing of Better Call Saul‘s season 3 premiere, AMC made the episode available to stream for free, regardless of whether you have a cable subscription or not.

The episode is available to stream on AMC’s official website from your computer or via the network’s app. The episode is available to stream for the next 30 days on both desktop and mobile viewing. The only other ways to stream Better Call Saul‘s latest episodes is to purchase them individually from Google Play, or wait until season 3 is over and binge the season when it hits Netflix.

Watching on your laptop is the best viewing option if you want Better Call Saul to be virtually ad-free. There was not one ad shown during the entire 55-minute episode.

If you want to watch Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) weasel his way out of his usual legal trouble on your phone, prepare to be bombarded with ads. The ads are annoyingly frequent, appearing after nearly every major break in the story. At one point, a block of five 30-second ads were spliced together. That is enough to put anyone on the verge of breaking bad.

AMC has been in the giving mood lately with its original series. AMC’s new series The Son premiered on April 8, and the series’ first two episodes are available to stream for free for the next four months. The first two episodes of new comedy Brockmire from AMC-owned network IFC debuted on April 5, and both episodes are also available to stream without a cable subscription for 50 days.

There is no word if AMC will allow cord cutters to watch future episodes of Better Call Saul for free.

For a while there, we were afraid that Slippin’ Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) might be disbarred for good, but the gavel has dropped and it appears there is order disorder in the court once again. According to ScreenCrush, AMC’s Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul will return for a fourth season, and will likely look to continue many of the storylines fans have come to know and love.

In a statement to the press, Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV, and AMC Studios, said of the move:

‘Better Call Saul’ season 3 premiere date revealed — here’s a sneak peek

Right on the heels of confirming that everyone’s favorite fast-food restaurant owner/drug kingpin Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) would be appearing in the third season of Better Call Saul, AMC has released a premiere date for the show. Viewers will be able to catch up with Jimmy McGill (aka Saul Goodman), played wonderfully by Bob Odenkirk, starting Monday, April 10, at 10 p.m. ET.

That’s much later than usual -- the first two seasons both debuted in February. But it will also give fans an extra two months to anticipate what’s to come. When we left Jimmy in season two (spoiler alert), he had started up his own law firm, and managed to bring along his friend/love interest Kim (Rhea Seahorn) to work alongside -- not with -- him. Meanwhile, his brother Chuck (Michael McKean) continues to be a thorn in Jimmy’s side, while Mike (Johnathan Banks) struggles with his morals and the desire to off a drug lord.

Vince Gilligan, creator of Better Call Saul, had already confirmed through some crafty Easter eggs that the terrifying Gus Fring character from Breaking Bad would indeed appear in the spinoff series Better Call Saul. And now, a hilarious clip for the upcoming season creatively teases his return.

Breaking Bad fans know that Fring, played by Giancarlo Esposito, was secretly the head of a massive drug ring (until Walter White, aka Heisenberg, took over, of course), but he was publicly known as the owner of a popular fast food joint called Los Pollos Hermanos. And the teaser plays on this, serving simply as a 30-second fake ad spot for the joint.
