How to watch season 5 of Insecure online from anywhere

Issa Rae and the rest of the cast from HBO's Emmy award-winning comedy series are returning for the show's fifth and final season and we have all the details on how you can watch new episodes of Insecure on TV or online.

All the way back in 2013, Rae first began working on a pilot for a comedy series with co-creator Larry Wilmore showcasing the awkward experiences of a contemporary African-American woman before the pair settled on the show's current title Insecure. HBO picked up the pilot in 2015 and the show's first season aired the following year.

At its heart, Insecure tells the story of Issa Dee (Issae Rae) and her best friend Molly (Yvonne Orji) who first met during their college days at Stanford. While Issa works at a non-profit for middle-school students of color called "We Got Y'all", Molly is a corporate attorney who has succeeded in her career but has difficulties dating.

However, Issa and Molly's relationship took a turn for the worse last season after Issa asked Molly's boyfriend for help when trying to organize a big block party event for everyone in their neighborhood in Los Angeles. While the two made up towards the end of the season, everything won't likely return to normal anytime soon.

According to Elle, Rae wrote season five of Insecure while in lockdown during the pandemic last year. Although planning the season virtually was a bit harder, Rae and the rest of the show's writers were eventually able to find their rhythm.

It's also worth noting that Insecure fans that live in Los Angeles will be able to attend an Insecure Fest block party put on by HBO to celebrate the final season of the hit comedy series. The event will give attendees the chance to view an exclusive screening of the season five premiere and will be very much like the block party that wrapped up season four of the show last year.

Whether you've been following the journeys of Issa and Molly since the show first premiered in 2016 or just want to see how the final season ties up loose ends, we'll show you how to watch new episodes of Insecure from anywhere in the world.

Insecure - When and where?

The fifth and final season of Insecure will premiere on Sunday, October 24 at 10pm ET/PT and will then air weekly at 9pm ET/PT. There are a total of ten episodes in the show's final season and Insecure's series finale will air on Sunday, December 19.

You can also catch up on past episodes from season 1-4 of Insecure on both Sky and NOW TV.

For viewers that don't want to commit to a lengthy Sky contract just to watch the final season of Insecure, don't worry as you can watch the show on NOW TV with an Entertainment Pass for £9.99 per month though you will have to pay an additional £5 to watch it in HD. NOW TV will also let you stream Insecure on your computer, smartphone, smart TV or other streaming devices.

Review: The Teracube 2e is a more sustainable phone that you can afford

It just got easier to be green. If you know me or read my work here at AC, you know that I feel strongly about a few things when it comes to smartphones and consumer tech, and those things are not necessarily what some of my colleagues or others in the tech-sphere care about. You can have your 10x optical zoom cameras, folding phones, and 50W wireless charging devices all day, but I'm more interested in affordable to mid-range devices that last longer than you'd expect and which are at least trying to do environmental and social good. Sounds great, but it seems that it's harder to find this combination of features in a phone than the ultra-premium specced-out devices we typically talk about here on this website. That's why I was excited when I had the chance to write this Teracube 2e review. Teracube is a relatively new smartphone OEM based out of Redmond, WA, and founder Sharad Mittal's stated goal is to change the "disposable nature of the consumer ele

Google's new Guest Mode is like incognito mode for Google Assistant

Your interactions with Google Assistant will not be saved when Guest Mode is turned on. What you need to know Google Assistant is getting a new Guest Mode for privacy-conscious users. When it's turned on, the virtual assistant will not save any of its interactions with you. Turning it on and off is as simple as a single voice command. Google this week announced a new Guest Mode for its virtual assistant that's designed with privacy-conscious folks in mind. A simple "Hey Google, turn on Guest Mode" will ensure that none of your interactions with Google Assistant are collected by the company and nor will they be used to 'personalize your experience' — often an indirect way of referring to targeted ads. When it's on, the Assistant will play a special chime to let you know. Smart displays with Assistant will also show a guest icon on the screen. And you can always check for yourself by saying, "Hey Google, is Guest Mode on?" Even with G

Spotify Q1 beats on sales of $2B with monthly active users up 31% to 286M

The coronavirus may be decimating some corners of the economy, but the impact on the digital music, as evidenced by the world’s biggest music streaming company, appears to be minimal. Today Spotify reported its earnings for Q1 with revenues of €1.848 billion ($2 billion at today’s rates) and an inching into a positive net income of $1 million. Monthly active users (not total subscribers) now stand at 286 million, with paid (premium) users at 130 million and ad-supported monthly active users at 163 million. Ad-supported users are growing at a slightly higher rate at the moment, at 32% versus 31%, Spotify said. Spotify beat  analysts’ forecasts on both sales — they had on average been expecting revenues of $1.86 billion — and EPS, which had been forecast to be -$0.49 but came in at -$0.20 on a diluted basis and $0.00 undiluted. The numbers underscore the positive signals we’ve had from the wider industry. More generally, we have seen a huge boost in streaming media services — includ

Adobe is giving students and teachers free access to Creative Cloud

Your university's IT admin will need to make an application for access. What you need to know Adobe is temporarily making Creative Cloud free for teachers and students. The offer is aimed at enabling them to continue being productive as they work and study from home. Students cannot individually avail the promo, however, as the application for access needs to be made by a university's IT admin. As universities around the world shut their campuses and organizations ask their employees to work from home, many tech companies are making their products available to educational institutes free for use. Google and Microsoft have both made their large-scale communication and videoconferencing tools free for everyone, and now Adobe is temporarily giving free Creative Cloud access to students and teachers. The subscription, which usually costs $79.49 per month, will give affected students and teachers access to the entire range of Adobe's applications, such as Photoshop
