Relaxing in front of TV

Where to watch TV shows from the UK and abroad

Long gone are the days when a fifth terrestrial channel seemed exciting. With the explosion of big-budget American TV shows and the huge choice of original series from a growing number of streaming providers, today’s TV landscape is very different to just a few years ago.

Now, even a premium Sky TV or Virgin Media TV subscription may not provide everything you want to watch. Many of the best series are only found on specific services, and it’s not always clear how you can legally view the latest releases.

So how do you go about watching top TV shows like Game of Thrones, Westworld, Stranger Things, and Better Call Saul in the UK? We’ve created a series of guides which explains everything you need to know. Follow the links below to find out exactly how you can catch the best TV, what it might cost (or how you can watch for free), and what kind of broadband you’ll need for streaming.
