Westworld episode 101 - Vitruvian man John P. Johnson/HBO

HBO’s newest series, Westworld, debuted on Sunday night and over the past few days, those with subscriptions to the network or its stand-alone streaming app, HBO Now, have been able to dig in.

Today, the network announced that it would also be putting the pilot online to allow non-subscribers the chance to watch the show. Those interested can head over to HBO’s Westworld site and watch the pilot while it’s still available, but it appears it’s regionally locked. Those in Canada and the U.K., for example, are out of luck this time around.

Based on Michael Crichton’s 1973 sci-fi Western of the same name, Westworld follows a group of tourists and an army of artificially intelligent robots that coexist in a theme park resort. Each night, the minds of the robots are erased, allowing visitors to live out their deepest and darkest fantasies without fear of consequence or repercussion.

Westworld airs Sunday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HBO.
