Snowpiercer Season 3 premieres in the United States on Monday, January 24, at 9 p.m. Eastern/8 p.m. Central, with new episodes airing every Monday thereafter. But can you watch the new episodes live online as they air? Here are the ways that we know will work, and the ones we’re waiting for more details about.

You Can Stream Snowpiercer Through a Streaming App That Includes TNT Access
If you’re wanting a foolproof way of streaming Snowpiercer exactly as Season 3 Episode 1 airs on TNT on Monday, January 24, your best bet is to use a streaming service that includes live TV access to TNT. Take note that these will typically cost you $50 to $80 a month or so, and you’ll need to pay for the service for a couple of months to watch the whole thing. You’ll also need to make sure those services include access to the TNT channel.
So which services are we talking about? The following should have access to TNT, but you’ll still want to doublecheck that it’s available in your region. They may even include free trials to test the service:
- YouTube TV includes access to the TNT channel for live viewing in some regions
- DirecTV Stream should also have access to watching TNT live.
- Sling TV has access to TNT live and you can sign up for a 7-day free trial.
- Hulu with Live TV includes access to the TNT channel for watching new programs live as they air.
Other Ways to Watch Snowpiercer Online
Your next best option for watching Snowpiercer online is using TNT Drama’s official website. You’ll typically need a cable or satellite login to make this one work, but give it a try anyway just in case that’s not the case. Last year, the new episode was added to TNT Drama as soon as it aired live on TV, so it was added an hour later each day rather than live as the episode was airing. It’s not clear if that will be repeated again with Season 3.
HBO Max also has Snowpiercer at this link, along with streaming rights for the show, but the streaming service just added Season 2 of Snowpiercer earlier this month. So it’s not really clear if Season 3 episodes will be added at some point in the near future after they air on TNT or several months from now. For example. Newsweek thinks the new episodes won’t drop on HBO Max until January 2023.
[UPDATE: It appears that HBO Max will not be making Snowpiercer available as the new episodes air. It’s Friday at the time of this update, Snowpiercer’s first Season 3 episode aired on Monday, and it still has not been added to HBO Max.]
Finally, last year a number of people used Amazon Prime Video to watch Snowpiercer. They bought Season 2 in advance with a season pass and got the new episodes as they became available, typically 24 hours after they aired on TV. As of the time of this article’s publication, a season 3 link hadn’t been added yet to Amazon Prime Video. But if it’s your preference, it would be worth checking again to see if a season 3 pass becomes available at this link soon.
In summary, your best option is likely TNTDrama’s website or one of the major streaming platforms like Hulu with Live TV. These are guaranteed to have the new episodes. HBO Max and Amazon Prime Video might also have Season 3 (along with options to purchase on sites like iTunes or Google Play), but it’s not clear yet what time those will be available. With Amazon, you’ll have to purchase the episodes separately as they become available (or a Season 3 pass) because they don’t come free along with any specific package.
If you live outside the United States, you can also stream it on Netflix starting January 25, streaming each episode the day after it airs in the U.S.
