"American Horror Story" season 3 episode 4 streaming news time. If you're trying to figure out where you can legally watch the new episode of "Coven" online just in time for Halloween, or you're looking for a legal livestream, this is the place, although I won't promise you'll like the answer. In fact, I'm pretty sure you won't. UPDATE: Here's where to stream episode 5.

Up til now, I've been reminding you of the details of "American Horror Story" before getting to the point, but let's do it widdershins (opposite) today. "American Horror Story" season 3 episode 4 streaming is available from exactly two count them two Internet web-sites (as the New York Times styled them until last week): Amazon Instant Video and iTunes. And we're only four episodes into the season, so it's not really too late to get a Season Pass and for it to still be worthless.

The "American Horror Story" season 3 episode 4 livestream is thus just as scarce as the whole show on streaming, but it's particularly upsetting this day of all days, Halloween Eve. Because tomorrow is the spookiest day of the year, and therefore far and away the best day to watch "Coven" - whether you've been following along the whole time or just getting up to speed now, even if you've never watched "American Horror Story" before.

And what an episode for it! "Coven" Halloween episode streaming is high on all of our wishlists, but unfortunately not our playlists, unless you're a seasonpassman, and really, who actually buys television on the Internet anymore? It's not the '90s, man! Anyway, this episode is, as usual, the one where things first come to a head; after all, that's what Halloween is before. Light spoilers follow.

"Coven" episode 3 season 4 has a kind of smarmy title, "Fearful Pranks Ensue," which does have the bonus of not being too spoilery. Neither is the official description, which goes a little something like this:

Fiona's choices rattle a decades long truce between the Salem witches and Marie Laveau. The Council of Witchcraft pays a surprise visit to the Academy with disturbing allegations.

And here's the new teaser for the "American Horror Story" Halloween episode that none of us will watch online for free. Well, we can watch the teaser for free, but that's about it. So let's start with that.

It's a darn shame that FX doesn't offer "American Horror Story" season 3 episode 4 streaming, either as a special exception to boost the Halloween ratings or the whole series in general. It seems inexplicable, too, but if you read this long profile from Vulture, you can momentarily distract yourself from the lack of Jessica Lange in front of your face with learning why that unfortunate state of affairs came to be. Basically it's because of money (ever heard of it?), not because FX doesn't realize you, hello, want to see the show. The rights are worth more to Netflix and to the home video department if the show never streams online.

How does it feel for your entertainment to be just part of a spreadsheet? Whatever, "Coven" itself is still great. Let me know in the comments if you know anywhere else to stream the show. In the meantime, "Fearful Pranks Ensue" airs on Wednesday (tonight) at 10 PM Eastern, 9 PM Central.
