How to watch Better Call Saul on Netflix
Better Call Saul is a Netflix original show and you’ll need a Netflix subscription to watch it via their streaming service. The Netflix app works in web browsers and on most devices, including tablets, smart TVs, games consoles, streaming sticks, and smartphones. You can also access Netflix on Sky Q TV and Virgin TV boxes.
What broadband speed do I need to watch Netflix?
Netflix recommends the following broadband speeds:
- Minimum speed required: 0.5Mb
- Recommended speed: 1.5Mb
- SD quality recommended speed: 3Mb
- HD quality recommended speed: 5Mb
- Ultra HD quality recommended speed: 25Mb
Cheap ADSL broadband can be suitable for viewing Netflix up to HD quality (though it may struggle if you try to stream more than one show at a time). For Ultra HD video or multiple HD streams, you will need fibre optic broadband.
In general, we recommend a minimum broadband speed of 2Mb to comfortably use any streaming video service at the lowest quality. But higher-quality video will demand more bandwidth, and you also have to consider whether other people in your home will be using the connection at the same time.
How much will it cost to stream Better Call Saul?
A basic Netflix subscription costs £5.99 per month. Upgraded subscriptions cost more but allow you to view higher quality video and you can use one account across several devices simultaneously. Once you’ve signed up to Netflix you’ll be on a rolling monthly contract which can be cancelled at any time.
Netflix is available via Sky Ultimate TV as well, which also gives you access to hundreds of Sky TV box sets; you’ll need a Sky TV subscription to get Sky Ultimate TV.

Will I like Better Call Saul?
Better Call Saul is a sharply-written, critically-acclaimed crime drama, with the roguish but likeable Jimmy McGill as the main protagonist. Throughout the show we watch him change from small-town, low-paid public defender to Saul Goodman, a smooth-tongued lawyer-on-call for Albuquerque’s criminal fraternity, and somebody who is more than happy to work around the law himself.
If you liked Breaking Bad, then Better Call Saul should definitely be on your ‘must watch’ list.
