Where to watch Atlanta in Australia
Earn, Van, Paperboi and Darius are back
After a four year hiatus, Donald Glover’s subversive comedy Atlanta has returned for its third season.
The first two episodes of the ten-episode run have already made their debut, and early hype from critics and fans on social media suggests that the series hasn’t lost any of its breezy charm or critical bite in the years since it last aired.
Aussies looking forward to the rest of the new season of Atlanta have a few streaming options when it comes to where and how they want to watch it. Here’s what you need to know.
How to watch Atlanta in Australia
Aussies looking to steam the new season of Atlanta are able to do so for free via SBS On Demand. The ad-supported streaming service currently offers all three seasons via the SBS On Demand app.
Those looking to refresh themselves or catch up before diving into the new season can also find the first two seasons of Atlanta on Binge and Foxtel Now.
Pricing only accurate as of last page update.
The exact terms of SBS On Demand’s exclusivity deal on Atlanta are unknown, so it’s possible that the new season will become available on other streaming services later down the line or once it finishes airing. We'll have to wait and see.
With Atlanta’s fourth and final season also due to land in 2022, it’s likely that those looking to feast on the series’ final batch of episodes will be faced with the same options as those described above.
That said, if you can’t wait, there is another way to watch the new season of Atlanta in Australia.
Aussies can rent or buy the new season of Atlanta digitally via the Apple TV and Google Play store. If you’re looking to shop via the former, you’re looking at $AU24.99 for access to the entire season or $3.99 per episode as it comes out.
SBS On Demand review
SBS On Demand is a not-at-all demanding place to find some quality on-demand TV and movie viewing options.
It’ll cost you the same amount if you’d prefer to get your digital copy of the series via Google’s video streaming apparatus, though you can save money by dropping things down to 720p and paying just $21.99 for the season pass.
Another way to cut down on costs here is to buy episodes individually through the Microsoft Store, as it is slightly cheaper than its counterparts. That said, given that the new season is expected to run for ten episodes, those looking for the best value option are typically better off buying the season pass rather than paying piecemeal.
What is Atlanta about?
Created and starring Donald Glover, Atlanta is an American comedy series that follows Earn Marks (Donald Glover), who convinces his rapper cousin Alfred (Brian Tyree Henry) to hire him as his manager.
Together with their friend Darius (Lakieth Stanfield) and ex-partner Van (Zazie Beetz), the quartet attempt to get paid and make it big while navigating the surreal realities of racism in America.
