Breaking Bad, one of the greatest American television shows of all time, may already be over, but if you're just discovering the show or if you're a long-time fan looking to rewatch the critically-acclaimed series, here's a guide on where you can stream Breaking Bad without cable.
Starring Bryan Cranston as a teacher turned drug kingpin Walter White, Breaking Bad received numerous awards and it's considered to be one of the best TV dramas
Bryan Cranston as a teacher turned drug kingpin Walter White, Breaking Bad has been acclaimed as one of the all-time greatest TV dramas ever produced. First-run episodes of the show originally aired on the AMC cable network, but now, fans can watch stream all five episodes thanks to various streaming services.
Back in 2010 to 2013, Netflix offered off-season viewings of Breaking Bad since episodes were still premiering on AMC, and this December, all 62 episodes are still available for streaming on Netflix, along with the sequel film, El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, which originally premiered on Netflix.
In fact, when you look at the list of trending shows on Netflix, you'd probably see Breaking Bad there, which is pretty impressive for a show that's already ended years ago.
It may take some time to find the series if you just browse through Netflix's menu, but you can find it using the streaming platform's search feature.
So, yeah, all five seasons of Breaking Bad are available to stream on Netflix; however, Breaking Bad director Rian Johnson clearly has a bone to pick with the streaming giant:
Google Play also has the complete run of Breaking Bad available for digital purhcase. Each episode costs $1.99, and each season's cost varies with the first season priced at $9.99, and most seasons costing $21.99 each. The first half of the final season costs $13.99 to purchase, and the second half costs $14.99.
Amazon Prime Video
Amazon Prime Video also has all five seasons of Breaking Bad (note that they seem to categoraize both parts of the final season into two separate seasons). Each episode costs $1.99 except for the episodes in the first season, which costs $2.99 each. Most of the seasons cost $18.99 each, but both the third and fourth seasons cost $23.99 each. However, Season 1 only costs $13.99.
Vince Gilligan's Emmy award-winning series can also be purchased on Redbox for $1.99 per episode, and just like Vudu and Amazon Prime, the price per season varies. Seasons 3 and 4 each cost $21.99 each while the others cost less.
YouTube is also offering episodes of Breaking Bad on its website. Each episode will cost you $2.99 for the High-Definition, and $1.99 for the Standard Definition.
Note that prices may be changed by these streaming services without notice.
Of course, if you rather get a blu-ray copy of the entire Breaking Bad series, you can get the 16-discs box set on Amazon for $79.76.
All 5 seasons of Breaking Bad are available to watch on VUDU. Each season costs $9.99, and each episode costs $1.99 (SD) and $2.99 (HDX).
