Watch TV series with paid services
The services that I am about to list you almost all have a common denominator: after a short free trial period, they require the subscription of a monthly subscription. But rest assured, there is no reason to worry. The monthly fee for on-demand services that I will talk to you about shortly is really affordable.
Netflix is the first solution that I would like to offer you. This service, which allows you to watch videos on-demand, is currently already used by millions of users. This indicates that it is somewhat appreciated and that is why I decided to recommend it to you.
The advantages offered by Netflix are essentially two. First of all, Netflix does not involve a cost that is too heavy for your pockets, given that the basic subscription starts at 7,99 euros. Secondly, this service offers a very wide choice of titles. There are even some exclusive titles produced directly by Netflix such as "Stranger Things", "Better Call Saul" and "Daredevil".
At the moment you can watch Netflix by choosing from the following subscription plans (without obligation or renewal constraints): the one from 7,99 € per month that guarantees the viewing of content at a standard definition on only one device at a time; the one from 11,99 € which gives access to HD content from two devices simultaneously or the one from 15,99 € which allows you to enjoy the viewing of Ultra HD (4K) content on four devices at the same time.
What do you need to do to try Netflix (the trial, depending on the periods, may or may not be available and may last for variable periods, for example 14 or 30 days)? First of all connected to the official page of the service. Done? Now click on the red button Provalo prays and fill in all the required fields that you will see in front of you. Among the various things that will be asked of you there is also the payment method to use.
You will be happy to know that, regardless of the subscription you decide to subscribe with Netflix, you can use this service from any web browser. Netflix, in fact, does not require the installation of any additional plugins. If you want to view Netflix content on your smartphone or tablet, download the official Netflix app for Android, iOS and Windows Phone. You can also view Netflix content on Apple TV, Chromecast and Smart TV.
Netflix contents can also be viewed offline both from mobile and from Windows 10 PC. If you want to know how to watch Netflix offline, read the guide I have prepared in this regard. You can find more information on how to use Netflix by reading the tutorial I have prepared about it.
If you are wondering how to watch TV series online, then know that too NOW TV could be for you. This service, conceived by Sky, offers a very rich catalog. I remind you of some TV series that you can view on NOW TV: “Twin Peaks”, “Game of Thrones” and “Gomorrah”.
There are various types of passes, divided by category or entertainment ticket (Videos, TV Series, Entertainment e Sport). In this case, you are interested in the ticket TV Series. How much? To be precise 9,99 € per month. Compared to Netflix, the service I told you about earlier, NOW TV offers a shorter trial period: 14 days.
So, do you want to try NOW TV for free for a couple of weeks? Well, then pay attention to the instructions I am about to give you. First of all connected to the official page of this service and click on the option TV Series which you can find at the top left. After that click on the button Try now 14 days at 0 € and you will be shown a registration form where you will go to enter your personal information.

As with Netflix, NOW TV will also ask you to enter a valid payment method. But also this time you can rest assured: if you deactivate the automatic renewal of the subscription before the 14 days you will not have to pay absolutely anything.
You can view NOW TV on your computer using the Google Chrome browser, without having to install any additional plugins. To use NOW TV on other browsers correctly, you need to install a special player, which is compatible with Windows and macOS. On your mobile device, however, you can download the NOW TV app, available on both Android and iOS. NOW TV is also compatible with many Smart TVs, as well as Chromecast, NOW TV Box, NOW TV Smart Stick, and video game console.

Watch TV series with free services
If you are not going to shell out even one euro but still want to know how to watch TV series online, then this section of the tutorial is for you. Now I will list some totally free services that will allow you to view some TV series. Of course, you cannot expect to have the same choice as users who subscribe to Netflix, NOW TV, Infinity, etc. However, if you are not too demanding, the solutions I am about to offer you will certainly meet your needs.
The first free solution I recommend you try is RaiPlay. This service, which as you may have already guessed is offered by Rai, allows you to view on-demand the most beautiful television series that are part of the programming of the state broadcaster, such as "Braccialetti Rossi", "A doctor in the family" and "Try it again Prof".
To try RaiPlay, all you have to do is connect to the official page of the service and choose the category of your interest, in this case the one dedicated to TV series. To access the catalog of the TV series available on RaiPlay, scroll through the home of the service until you reach the section TV Series and select the title of your interest. Alternatively, click on the symbol ≡ located at the top left, access the section Replay and choose an episode of the TV series among those broadcast by Rai channels in the last few days. It should be noted that many American TV series remain available only with a few episodes and only for a few days after their broadcast on Rai channels.
Do you prefer to watch Italian fiction? Then I have excellent news for you: you can watch the complete seasons of all the series produced by Rai by clicking on the symbol ≡ and choosing Fiction from the menu that opens. You can then choose the genre you prefer (Comedy, Drama, Sentimental, etc.) and use the arrows to scroll through the various contents available.
If you wish, you can also use this service from your smartphone or tablet. All you have to do is install the official RaiPlay app which is available on both Android, iOS and Windows Phone. In this case, however, you will be asked to create an account for free. You can also view RaiPlay contents on Apple TV.
VVVVID is, most likely, the best free solution you can take to watch online TV series. Although this service is totally free, you can count on a catalog that is anything but poor: “Ascenion”, “Life on Mars”, “The Office” and many other interesting series. The only request this service makes of you is to register for free. Please note that you can also register using the option Registrati with Facebook.
Once you have registered, all you have to do is click on the tab TV Series, which you can find above, and choose your favorite series. You don't have to do anything else. Is not it fantastic? And as if that weren't enough, you can watch your favorite content from any device, be it a computer, an Android or iOS smartphone.
Mediaset On Demand
Another free solution that I want to bring to your attention is Mediaset On Demand.
Within this service you will find the main fiction and soap operas broadcast by the Italian group such as "Beautiful", "District of Police", "Casa Vianello", etc. In order to succeed in watching your favorite series, connect to the official Mediaset On Demand page. After doing this click on Programmi AZ, the option you find at the top. At this point select one of the available Italian fiction (eg Casa Vianello) and choose one of the episodes that are available.
Mediaset On Demand also allows you to watch live TV. To do this you need to create a free account. Once you have done this you can watch the live by tapping on the icon of the program you want to watch. If you decide to do this, you can also watch the American series live. I want to clarify that you will not be able to watch American TV series on-demand, as they are only available live.
Then look for the TV series available on Mediaset On Demand also by clicking on a letter. In this way you will be able to avoid wasting time unnecessarily scrolling through the numerous pages that contain the titles of the TV series broadcast on the main Mediaset channels.
Mediaset On Demand is also available in the form of an app for smartphones and tablets. It is compatible with Android, iOS and Windows Phone and to use it you need to create a free account.
The last free alternative that I propose to you is the Paramount Channel site, a free digital terrestrial and satellite broadcaster that broadcasts American movies and TV series such as "Smallville", "Sherlock", "Spartacus" and many others. This service does not require any registration. All you have to do is go to the official Paramount Channel page to be able to watch your favorite TV series. You can do this from your computer, your Android or iOS device.
To view Paramount Channel's on-demand content, you will need to click Video from the top menu and click on one of the available TV series (eg. Father Brown: episodes online). To access live content you will need to click on On TV and then Live. This way you will be able to see the movie or TV series that Paramount Channel is broadcasting live.
Other services for watching TV series online
There are many other broadcasters that broadcast their content in live streaming. In this regard, I invite you to read my in-depth study that will explain how to watch TV online. I am sure that reading this guide will also be very useful and will allow you to see what other services are available that will allow you to watch TV series online.
If you are abroad and can't access some of the services just mentioned, you can think about going to one VPN to browse online by disguising your real geographical position and making you untraceable. Among the most reliable VPNs I point out NordVPN (which I told you about in depth here) and Surfshark (which I talked about well here), which are very affordable, have servers scattered in every corner of the world and are compatible with all devices.
