So you can’t wait for HBO’s DMZ, but not sure where you can watch it and how? You’re in luck! We’ve got the deets down for you. Read below to learn how you can watch DMZ online, whether you’re in the United States or another part of the world.
Links for Watching ‘DMZ’ Online
You can watch DMZ’s four episodes starting March 17, 2022 midnight PT and 3 a.m. ET, on HBO Max in the United States. This streaming platform isn’t free, but for a small fee of $9.99 per month, DMZ and other shows like Raised by Wolves can be available for you right away.
However, the service is geo-blocked in most parts of the world. Unless you want to go the VPN way, DMZ will be available on CraveTV in Canada and that’s pretty much it! Most people recommend ExpressVPN should you want to pay for the HBO Max service and live outside of North America. It has, according to their website “Ultra-fast speeds. Unlimited bandwidth. Works on all devices.”
It’s a shame that HBO Max isn’t available everywhere at this time. Depending on the show that you’re interested in watching, it might sometimes be available on a different service in other countries, just like DMZ is available on Crave in Canada.
What is DMZ about?
According to Wiki, DMZ is an American dystopian miniseries about a woman named Alma Ortega, an NYC medic, who becomes a symbol of hope in a demilitarized Manhattan Island while trying to find her lost son during the Second American Civil War. The show is created by Roberto Patino (Cut Bank, Sons of Anarchy), based on the comic book series of the same name by Brian Wood and Riccardo Burchielli.
Ava DuVernay tweeted that the DMZ cast is “one of the happiest, most united casts I’ve ever worked with.”
The series’ premiere was previewed at SXSW 2022.
