Showtime has put the season 2 premiere episode of Homeland (Homeland s02e01) up on YouTube so that you can watch Homeland for free online… legally. Showtime has given away the first episode of its shows for free in the past; they just put the first episode of Dexter online for free too. It’s only the first episode for free, but it’s something, especially since it’s hard to get shows from HBO or Showtime any other way until well after the season is over. One day maybe they’ll offer an online subscription service, but for now you can at least watch episode 1 of Homeland from season 2 online for free on YouTube (embedded below).
