It's time to watch It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 16's premiere online. But, somehow, Breaking Bad stars Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston will also be here. Why? Beyond being unfortunate enough to be driven by Charlie (Charlie Day), we're not sure.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 16 channel, start time

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 16 premieres today (Wednesday, June 7).
Time — 10 p.m.
• U.S. — Watch on FXX via Sling Blue + Hollywood Extra  or Fubo.TV or the next day on Hulu
• Watch anywhere — try ExpressVPN 100% risk free

Except for the fact that this season of Sunny is dipping its toe into the world of celebrity-branded products. So, will there be jokes about Paul and Cranston hawking chips? Only time will tell.

The 'sweet' 16th season of Sunny will also get topical when the gang tackles inflation, gun control and ... US-Russian relations. We're sure that the Sunny gang won't accidentally start an international crisis, but we're not betting against it either.

As for what each of the gang has to deal with? Expect Mac (Rob McElhenny) to figure out long-distance dating and allergies, while Charlie's sisters are back to be a pain. Dee (Kaitlin Olson) is fighting for rent control, while Frank (Danny DeVito) simply wants his gun. The most uphill battle of the season, though, will likely be between Dennis (Glenn Howerton) and his own mental health — which he's trying to improve.

How to watch It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 16 in the US

In the US, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 16 airs on FXX on Wednesdays at 10 p.m. and hits Hulu on Thursdays.

FXX is in many cable packages, and can be added if yours doesn't have it. If you've cut the cord, you can find FXX on two of the best streaming services: Fubo and Sling TV

But while it's included in Fubo's regular package, Sling TV customers need to have at least Sling Blue ($40 per month) and the Hollywood Extras package for $6 per month. 

Episodes air in pairs, back to back, at 10 p.m. in your time zone. FXX is also on some of the best cable TV alternatives, including Hulu with Live TV and YouTube TV.

Sling TV

You can add FXX to Sling Blue (but not Sling Orange) with the $6 per month Hollywood Extra add-on. This customizability helps Sling TV provide a more budget-friendly option. 

Fubo:a 7-day free trial

Fubo: One of the best streaming services with FXX, Fubo has all of the right network channels and the two cable channels you don't want to go without. Who needs cable? Not Fubo subscribers. It's got a 7-day free trial so you don't need to pay up front.

How to watch It's Always Sunny season 16 in the UK

Ah, corporate synergy. Hulu isn't available outside of the US, but Disney Plus is, and episodes should upload to Disney Plus after they debut in the States. So, expect them at around 4 a.m. BST on Thursdays. 

Disney Plus costs £7.99 per month and £79.90 per year.

Americans abroad could just use the service of their choice, provided they log in via a VPN such as ExpressVPN.

How to watch It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 16 in Canada

Can you watch It's Always Sunny season 16 in Australia?

Unfortunately, we're hearing the answer is "no." Word went around that It's Always Sunny season 16 would be on Disney Plus the day after for those down under. That has not happened.

Disney Plus costs $13.99 AU per month and $139.99 AU per year.

If you're having trouble, a VPN such as ExpressVPN is what you probably need.
