Still hailed as one of the greatest series of all time, knowing how to watch The Sopranos online is a surefire way to witness greatness on your TV. Six seasons of drama, mafia intrigue, internal struggles and some of the best story-telling and character development ever seen on screen, if you watch The Sopranos online, you will not regret it one bit.

Having that HBO pedigree running through it The Sopranos is as much about family as it about the mafia. It's set around the same time it aired - between 1999 and the mid-2000s - and follows James Gandolfini's Tony Soprano as he tries to balance his role as head of the Soprano mafia family and his home family life too. This is detailed and covered really compellingly via his sessions with his therapist which, while simple, are some of the most revealing scenes in the series. His struggles as an organized crime boss and family man eventually manifest in falling out with his uncle, his wife, other mobster members of the Soprano family. Not to mention, the prominent complications and life-threatening conflicts with the New York City-based Lupertazzi family.

It's a truly great series and comes from a time when seasons ran for loads and loads of episodes so there's plenty to get your teeth into. And by the wonders of modern technology, there's a whole host of different methods to watch The Sopranos online, no matter where you are in the world. Native options exist all over the globe, but if you need a way to stream The Sopranos from a different country to your own or you like the look of another country's streaming options (maybe it's cheaper) you can employ the use of a VPN. Regardless of the method, you'll find the best ways to get your Sopranos hit here. Plus, all the options can get you streaming in minutes, and avoid massive contracts or bloated fees. So let's get to it; the best value options and easiest ways to watch The Sopranos online.

(opens in new tab)

From £9.99 a month at Now TV (opens in new tab)
The best way to watch The Sopranos online in the UK is via Now TV. If you're a new customer, bag a 7-day free trial first, then you're with everyone else by going for an Entertainment Pass which will you £9.99 a month. It does get you a considerable amount of content though. The downside is that if you want to watch in 1080p you'll have to bite the bullet and pay a few quid more for the pleasure.

(opens in new tab)

Binge| From $10 a month (opens in new tab)
All six seasons are available for Australian viewers at Binge. These prices are much cheaper than the Foxtel prices and include a 14-day free trial for new customers and no lock-in contracts. Nice.

How to watch The Sopranos online from anywhere else

(opens in new tab)

Via an Express VPN sub from just $6.67/£5.50 a month (opens in new tab)
While the above options are the most straightforward, generally, options for those locales, if you're somewhere with no access to your original subs or if you like the look of another country's option, then using a VPN can be a great way to do so.

Taking a step back, a VPN is an abbreviation of 'Virtual Private Network'. This is a mechanism that will disguise your PC or mobile device's internet 'address', enabling you to appear as if you are in another country, thus hopping over the hurdles that could come from geographical limitations or license restrictions. 

We have guides to the best VPN for gaming (opens in new tab) as well as the best VPN for Netflix (opens in new tab), so we feel well placed enough to recommend Express VPN (opens in new tab) as our favorite. It's one of the best for many reasons, but it offers sound security options and has a large selection of reliable server locations to dial into. Express VPN works on a wide range of devices so you'll be fine when it comes to compatibility too.

1: Get a VPN installed. ExpressVPN is good value at the best of times but right now there's a great offer on which gets you three extra months FREE on a 12-month package, saving you 49% (opens in new tab)

2: Connect to a server. Choose to connect to server in the country of the service you're picking.

3: Then head over to your chosen service. This is when you can just shop 'as normal' and pick your streaming service of choice and complete your order.
