So much for inspiration through anger. You can watch Ted Lasso season 3 episode 5 right now to see the aftermath of AFC Richmond sabotaging its own aspirations, falling 4-1 to West Ham after being down 2-0 at the half. 

Last time, the coaches — without telling Ted (Jason Sudeikis) — showed the team the footage of Nate (Nick Mohammed) ripping up the "BELIEVE" sign last season. And while it was done with the intent to motivate, the Greyhounds hit the field to attack and hurt Nate and Rupert's West Ham team. New star Zava (Maximilian Osinski) looked incredibly confused by it all. As you'll see below, this week's all about trying to pick up the pieces.

Off the field, we've learned that Rupert (Anthony Head) is cheating on his new wife Bex (Keeley Hazell) — which both Rebecca (Hannah Waddingham) and Nate know about. Rupert also set Nate up with Anastasia (Elee Nova), whom he introduced as a fan of Nate's. Nate's reaction suggested that she's a celebrity. Oh, and Ted told his ex-wife Michelle (Andrea Anders) that he was upset about how he learned of her current involvement with their former marriage counselor.

As for what's happening in the Premier League this week? Apple's official description for Ted Lasso season 3 episode 5, titled "Signs," reads: With their season in a tailspin, Richmond try to right the ship against mighty Manchester City. Off the pitch, everyone faces their own setbacks.

And that's what we'd expect — save for the setbacks. This will be the first episode that I hadn't seen when I wrote our Ted Lasso season 3 review, where I raved about how the new season is still worthy of being called one of the best Apple TV Plus shows

So, re-watch the season trailer below, and scroll down to learn everything you need to know about watching Ted Lasso season 3 episode 5 online on Apple TV Plus!

When does Ted Lasso season 3 episode 5 come out?

Yep. Ted Lasso season 3 episode 5 will likely hit  Apple TV Plus today (Tuesday, April 11) at 9 p.m. ET. / 6 p.m. PT — which is also 1 a.m. GMT / 12 p.m. AEDT on Wednesday (April 12). 

Yes, that's not exactly matching the advertised "April 12" release date seen on Apple's own site. If you're confused about the Ted Lasso season 3 episode schedule, we don't blame you. The company seems to be acknowledging that there's no good reason to not release episodes during the evening in the United States. Doing so means that fans don't need to watch at the crack of dawn to avoid spoilers online.

Typically, one would expect Ted Lasso episodes to drop on Wednesdays at 3 a.m. ET / 12 a.m. PT / 7 a.m. GMT / 6 p.m. AEDT, but Apple's gone with Tuesday nights for this season (which we also saw with Severance).

How to watch Ted Lasso in the U.S. and possibly for free

We're assuming Ted Lasso fans may have already signed up for Apple TV Plus, and probably can't use the Apple TV Plus 7-day free trial

But if you're on a Roku device, you should be able to get three free months of Apple TV Plus. Existing and new Roku owners can get this offer, just add Apple TV on your Roku to get the deal (you may need to set up a new account to avoid doubling up on your current Apple ID).


After the Apple TV Plus 7-day free trial, it costs $6.99 per month. Apple TV Plus features fantastic original programming including Black Bird, Shrinking, and Severance.

How to watch Ted Lasso season 3 from anywhere

If you're stuck abroad — such as in one of the few countries where Apple TV Plus is not available — you will likely run into geo-fenced restrictions on the platforms and services you can use. But with the help of a virtual private network (VPN), you can watch Ted Lasso season 3 and all the other shows you want on the services you already pay for no matter where you are. 

Based on our testing, the best VPN is ExpressVPN, which is easy to use and delivers fast internet speeds, making it simple to set up for streaming in no time at all. It also works on practically any device, starting with iOS and Android and including streaming devices such as the Amazon Fire TV Stick and Apple TV. 


Our favorite VPN service, ExpressVPN, is a top choice for those looking to watch Ted Lasso. It's got a solid mix of safety, speed and ease-of-use. Plus, you get an extra 3 months free if you sign up for a year. If you've never used a VPN before and are curious and not sure, there's a 30-day money-back guarantee if you just want to give it a try.
