    So, I live in an internet deprived area and have to rely on Satellite internet. My service can’t handle streaming and even it it could, one episode would use my whole months data allowance. So, what other options will there be to watch this series?

    Wait until some pirate sells it to you on a DVD? That's usually the way to go for internet-deprived areas. Or ask somebody, who has a good connection to download and bring it you. The best bet is an external hard drive - either buy one yourself or ask somebody who has one to bring the show on it.
    That how I help my internet-deprived relatives to... preview movies and tv shows before deciding whether to buy them.

    If you have a local library service, you could try there. They may have DVDs, and if they don't, they may offer inter-library loan services.

    That's a major bummer! If it's a question of data-limit, then you'll probably have to wait until it comes out on some physical media. If you have the data capacity and it's just a speed issue, you could use a service like iTunes and download individual episodes. The download would be long but then you could watch it with no difficult. Would still use a lot of data though.

    Also, not knowing the specifics of your area, maybe there's a library or a Starbucks or something with internet? You could wait until the whole thing's available on streaming then camp out at Starbucks and binge it on a free trial :p

    Out of curiosity: did any show created for streaming got released physically?




    I have a feeling you'll have to wait a long time for a DVD/Blu-Ray release. I think it's safer if you do as @Jaxxon suggested and download episodes from iTunes at Starbucks or any other venue with Wi-Fi.

    The Expanse was created for streaming and eventually saw home release as well (albeit in censured/shortened form). All of HBOs shows get physical releases. Don't think any of Amazon's show does, however.

    And remember--this is Star Wars. If there's no physical release, I'll eat a green space rabbit.
