How to watch Mr. Mercedes for free on AT&T TV Now


Live Stream Season 3 of Mr. Mercedes, based on a Stephen King novel

Looking for a way to watch Mr. Mercedes, the popular series based on Stephen King’s novels, for free?

This short guide will give you a few options of how to watch Mr. Mercedes on AT&T TV Now

Season 3 is about to kick off, and it’s pretty easy to jump into the first couple of seasons. The show is an exclusive series on the Audience Network, which is owned by AT&T. So you’re not going to find it on Hulu or Netflix anytime soon. 

Instead, you can stream the first two episodes of Season 1 for free on the Audience Network website.

AT&T TV Now has a 7-day free trial if you really want to delve into the series. Just go online and cancel before your trial ends if you don’t want to keep going with the service.

You can live stream AT&T TV Now on a Roku, Amazon Fire TV devices and other major streaming devices. 

Audience Network is now producing exclusive shows, but it’s a little known network in the world of streaming and cord cutting. “Mr. Mercedes” and some of their other exclusive shows aim to change that.

The strategy to attract viewers with original, exclusive shows is similar to what other networks like Epix is doing. Epix, owned by MGM studios, just released a series loosely based on the Leonard Elmore novel “Get Shorty.”

When is Season 3 of Mr. Mercedes?

  • DATE: Sept. 10, at 10 P.M. ET
  • CHANNEL: Audience Network
  • LIVE STREAM: AT&T TV Now (free 7-day trial)

What’s Mr. Mercedes about?

Two years after retiring, homicide detective Bill Hodges just wants to rest and forget about his work. But one case still haunts him.

A driver that plowed a stolen Mercedes into a line of people waiting for a job fair was never caught. Brady Hartsfield killed eight people, and wounded many more. And he’s loves taunting Hodges about never getting caught as he takes on an even more ambitious plan of mass murder.

Deciding to act, Hodges undertakes a secret crusade to stop Hartsfield’s latest plan and bring the killer to justice.

Harry Treadaway stars as Brady Hartsfield in the new series “Mr. Mercedes”.

Stephen King describes “Mr. Mercedes” as his first hard-boiled detective tale. The novel was published by Scribner in June 2014 and became an immediate No. 1 New York Times Bestseller upon its release. Shortly after the novel was published, King announced that “Mr. Mercedes” was the first of a projected trilogy. The second novel, “Finders Keepers,” was published by Scribner in June 2015, and the third novel, “End of Watch,” was published by Scribner in June 2016.

David E. Kelley wrote and adapted King’s novel for television. You may recognize Kelley’s name because of his network hits like “Boston Legal” and “Ally McBeal.”

Kelley has had some big hits with shows made exclusively for premium networks. He created the HBO miniseries “Big Little Lies” and the excellent series “Goliath” for Amazon Video.

Who is in the series?

It’s pretty much an all-star cast.

“Mr. Mercedes” stars Brendan Gleeson as Detective Bill Hodges. Harry Treadaway plays Brady Hartsfield. Kelly Lynch stars as Deborah Hartsfield. Jharrel Jerome (“Moonlight”) plays Jerome Robinson. Scott Lawrence (“Avatar”) is Detective Peter Dixon.

You’ll recognize many more stars once you start watching the series. Even if you’ve never read the novel, it’s a great series to watch.
