is snl new tonight?
Yes, there is a new SNL on February 13.
As always it starts at 11:30 p.m. ET / 8:30 p.m. PT.
It airs on NBC, which is on Sling.
We’re staying up to watch SNL online tonight to see Regina King make her debut on the series. It’s been a good and busy time for Ms. King, whose directorial debut One Night in Miami (which is drumming up awards season buzz) just arrived in December.
As for what Ms. King will satirize, there’s a chance SNL might merge the politically-charged Watchmen HBO series she starred in with current events. She’s joined by Nathaniel Rateliff, a singer/song-writer whose style is a cross between R&B and Americana.
Ms. King follows a pair of successful first time hosts: John Krasinski and Dan Levy.
As was the case last week, this SNL episode is scheduled to be performed in front of the show’s traditional live studio audience at Studio 8H at Rockefeller Center.
Previous episodes were performed remotely due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, and the production is continuing to follow to safety regulations, including a reduced capacity and face mask wearing.
Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch SNL online:
How to watch SNL online anywhere, with a VPN
Just because NBC isn’t available everywhere doesn’t mean you can’t watch Saturday Night Live if your current location doesn’t offer it. Watching SNL using the service you already pay for, along with the rest of the internet, can be pretty easy with the right VPN (virtual private network), which lets stream the show from wherever you go.
The best VPN service is ExpressVPN. It meets the VPN needs of the vast majority of users, offering outstanding compatibility with most devices and impressive connection speeds. Plus, if you’re ready to commit now, signing up for longer periods of six months or a year reduces the cost even more.
Our favorite VPN service, ExpressVPN, really shines thanks to its safety, speed and simplicity-to-use. It’s also compatible with loads of devices – from iOS and Android to Roku, Apple TV and PlayStations. You’ll even get an extra 3 months free if you sign up for a year, or there’s a 30-day money-back guarantee if you just want to give it a try.
How to watch SNL online in the US
In the U.S., viewers can watch Saturday Night Live if they have a digital antenna or a cable TV package.
Of these options, we recommend Sling and FuboTV, two of the best streaming services on the market. Both of these services offer cloud DVR and on-demand features, allowing you to catch up on the big show via NBC even if you missed it live.
Saturday Night Live episodes also appear on Hulu the day after they air.
Sling TV packs NBC stations, making it easy to watch SNL without cable. It’s a part of the Sling Blue package, which includes more than 50 channels including NBC and Fox (in select regions), Bravo, AMC, Food Network, HGTV, Lifetime and USA. View Deal
