Stream the season premieres of ‘The Affair’ and ‘Homeland’ on Flipps

Sometimes good news comes in twos. We are excited to announce that in collaboration with Showtime you can now watch the season two premiere of the hit drama series ‘The Affair’ one whole week before it airs on TV. To top it off, the premiere of the much anticipated fifth season of the Emmy® and Golden Globe®- winning ‘Homeland’ will be available on Flipps, Sunday, October 4th. That’s what we call an early October treat!

Season two of the provocative drama ‘The Affair’ will be told separately from four different perspectives, revealing four distinct truths. The long-term ramifications of the affair continue to shape the lives of Alison, Noah, Helen, and Cole. The story cracks wide open to reveal a complex web of intrigue and deceit more dangerous than anyone could have imagined. The second season is set to debut on Sunday, October 4th on Showtime, but we don’t want you to wait this long. You can stream it right now on on your TV by going to the Showtime channel on Flipps.

The Affair

‘Homeland’ season five will pick up two years after Carrie Mathison’s ill-fated tenure as Islamabad station chief. Struggling to reconcile her guilt and disillusionment with years of working on the front lines in the “war on terror,” Carrie finds herself in a self-imposed exile in Berlin, estranged from the CIA and working as the head of security for a German philanthropist.
