Homeland, the spy drama starring Claire Danes, centers on an American soldier taken prisoner during the invasion of Iraq in 2003. Left for dead, the soldier miraculously returns to the U.S. after years in captivity. Danes plays Carrie Matheson, a driven CIA officer battling her own psychological demons.
Soon after it launched in 2011, Homeland has instantly gained critical success and has amassed multiple awards over the years, including an Emmy and a Golden Globe in 2012 and 2013.

Produced by Showtime, the series is now currently on its sixth season and airs every Sundays at 9PM on the cable network.

So is Homeland streaming on Netflix?
Unfortunately, at this moment Homeland is not available for streaming on Netflix. Under the company’s new pact with Showtime in 2011, all original scripted shows airing on the cable network will no longer be included on the digital channel’s library. Homeland is part of that deal.
Showtime wants to protect their brand and makes sure that viewers of their TV shows subscribe to their own platform, Showtime Anytime.
Other streaming options
Showtime channel supscription
All six seasons of Homeland are available for streaming via Showtime Anytime service. The service is an app available at no additional cost as a part of a Showtime subscription through participating TV providers (cable).
However, if you don’t have a cable subscription, or don't like using yet another app, you can still subscribe to the same Showtime service through Hulu and Amazon Prime. Here's how it works: you use Hulu or Amazon Prime platform but add-on Showtime as an extra service/channel to your standard (Hulu or Amazon Prime) subscription.
Hulu charges an additional $8.99 to use this on top of your standard Hulu monthly subscription. On Amazon Prime, the price is the same but you get a 7-day free trial to test the channel!
This option does not require you to become a Showtime subscriber to watch Homeland. With standard Hulu subscription, you can watch only seasons 1 to 4. On Amazon Prime you can purchase/own every season (1-6).
Just follow the links below to get started:
- Watch Homeland seasons 1-4 on Hulu (you need standard Hulu subscription)
- Watch Homeland seasons 1-6 on Amazon (purchase individual seasons or episodes)
