Looking for a punchy new show to watch that doesn’t conform to TV norms? Then Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Vicky Jones, the dynamic duo behind Fleabag, have just what you need. Read on and find out how to watch Run online and stream every episode from anywhere in the world, including for free.
How to watch Run online
The seven-episode first season of Run started in the US on HBO on April 12, 2020. New episodes air weekly at 10.30pm ET and cord-cutters can bag HBO for nothing by taking advantage of the FREE Hulu trials currently on offer.
Run follows Ruby (played by Emmy-winning Nurse Jackie star Merritt Wever) as she leaves her comfortable suburban family life behind to reunite with college sweetheart Billy, an Irish life coach. He’s played by Domhnall Gleeson, who’s come some way since his time as Bill Weasley in the Harry Potter franchise.
The story unfolds as the pair go off on a whirlwind trip across America to honor a pact they made back at university – if either one of them texts the word “run” and the other replies with the same, it’s time to drop everything and meet at Grand Central Station in New York City.
A transatlantic co-production between HBO and Sky Comedy, Jones serves as writer and producer, while Waller-Bridge stars as key character Laurel in addition to her executive producer credit. Keep reading and we’ll tell you where to watch Run online and stream episode 6 no matter where you are right now.
How to watch Run online in the US
The best way to watch Run online in the US is through one of HBO’s own streaming services. If you’re already using HBO for your cable subscription, you’ll be able to access the latest episodes as they become available.
However, you can also sign up to HBO Now for $15 a month (plus a 7-day free trial) and watch the whole season as it happens. If you’re not set on picking up a separate HBO Now subscription and you don’t already get your cable through HBO Go, there are other ways to watch Run online.
- Amazon Prime: If you’re a member of Amazon Prime, you can add HBO streaming to your plan for the same $14.99 cost per month.
- Hulu: Add HBO to your Hulu subscription for an additional fee and you’ll be able to keep all your services in one place.
The show premiered on Sunday, April 12 at 10.30pm ET on HBO GO and HBO NOW, with new episodes following at the same time every Sunday – right now we’re on to episode 6.
How to watch Run in the UK
Run will be broadcast through Sky Comedy in the UK, which means you can watch it all as it unfolds using a Now TV subscription. Pick up the Now TV Entertainment Pass for £8.99 per month, and you’ll be paying that on a rolling basis if you choose to take advantage of the 7-day free trial.
A few days later than the US, Run debuted on April 15 at 2am on Sky Comedy. But it also airs at the rather more convenient time of 9pm on Wednesday evenings – the next showing being episode 6 of Run this week.
