Showtime has made the first episode of its Andrew Dice Clay comedy  and the fifth season premiere of “House of Lies” available for free online prior to their April 10 linear bows in an effort to generate sampling and buzz for both series.

The episodes, cleaned up to meet at TV-14 rating, were made available Friday through Amazon, Apple, YouTube, Hulu, Roku, PlayStation Vue and other streaming platforms.

The two episodes will be available free to non-Showtime subscribers across a range of streaming platforms. Showtime is making all six episodes of “Dice” available online to subscribers on April 10, another example of traditional networks recognizing the growing appetite among TV buffs for binge-watching options.

On air, “Dice” and “House of Lies” will premiere back to back in the 9 p.m. hour on April 10.
