A Midsummer’s Nightmare is an American made anthology psychological thriller. The pilot stars Courtney Love and provides a twist on Shakespeare’s a Midsummer Night’s Dream. It will premier on the Lifetime Channel on July 14th, 2017. If you have access to a cable or satellite service, you can login and stream the movie. If you don’t there are several other ways to watch it live online without cable.
The first one follows 4 lovers that travel to the woods to pursue their romantic desires, but as we have learned from older horror movies, that never turns out well. At this point, it is unknown if it will become a full blown series. However, if it does well, Lifetime may have a hit on their hands.
Let’s look at a few alternative ways to watch the show without a cable or satellite subscription. If you are traveling outside the US, be sure to connect to a VPN to watch.
Use Sling TV to stream Midsummer’s Nightmare
Sling TV is a live TV streaming service that offers an easy way to watch the race. This affordable option gives you access to popular pay TV channels, without the need for cable, a satellite subscription, or a contract. If you are a cord cutter or thinking of becoming one, the service is only a fraction of the cost. Of course, prices and number of streams available vary based on the plan you choose. The show will be shown on Lifetime, so you’ll need the Orange or Blue package. You can try Sling TV free for 7 days to test the service.
The Sling TV service may be watched on your favorite television by using streaming devices like Roku, Xbox, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, and others. Additionally, it is compatible with Android, iOS, Windows, and Mac. There are other devices supported, so you may want to check their website for the latest list.
