How to watch Downton Abbey online?

I'm considering cancelling my cable in January, but the fact that Downton Abbey is getting ready to start back up makes me nervous. I don't want to miss any of it!

Is there a way to watch Downton Abbey online for free? If not, how do those of you without cable go about getting your fix?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Well, first of all, Downton is on PBS, which you can get over the air without cable. I'm pretty sure PBS also puts it on their website.

It's also worth pointing out that Season 4 has already aired in the UK, and is already available to watch online for free from some sources that might not be entirely 100% legal. If you're not opposed to that, you can just google something like "watch Downton s4 online" and you'll get lots and lots of choices.

Depending on where you live, you can watch local channels online or with a streaming device using aereo.com. I live in the NY area and for $8 a month I can watch all of my local channels on the roku without cable.

A local news station is promoting a new device, Dyle TV. It can be purchased for a one time fee of $99 from Amazon. That might be something you could look into. Hopefully someone else might have more details for you.

I don't have cable and I love this show. Grav_def is right, you should be able to find an over the air signal for PBS to watch it like I do. The new season starts on PBS on January 5. You can also access the show of the week online on PBS after the original airing. I sometimes do that when I'm at school staying late for basketball games.

Has an excellent website, I watch a lot of their shows on it. Downton Abby is on the site, I don't think all the seasons are, just the most recent.
I love that show!

No cable here either. You can either get an antenna and a digital signal converter and watch it off network television (you'll probably get ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, and FOX that way) or you can watch it legally off the PBS website which is what I did for the last 3 seasons. They usually put it up the day after it airs. I actually like that better - It's so long and I can pause it to take a break! Previously they've left each episode up for 2ish weeks, then taken it down and posted another, so don't wait too long after it airs to watch it.

You can do it the illegal way somebody mentioned, just make sure you have a really good virus blocker or you run the risk of spyware/adware being installed when you click 'play.'
