If good weather and a three-day weekend wasn’t enough to make you smile this bank holiday, then maybe the fact you can stream The Wire and The Sopranos for free on Sky will do the trick.
There’s your post-beer garden binge-watch sorted!
The shows are being made available as part of a new promotion from the company, which will allow Sky TV customers to access the first season of a number of box sets for free from tomorrow (May 25) for two weeks.
That’s actually it – no strings attached for a change.
Just lots of great shows for free, though admittedly once you get hooked on a box set it will probably be difficult to give it up after just one season.
The cynic in me suspects Sky know exactly what they’re doing here…
In a press release, the network explained anyone without Sky Box Sets or Ultimate On Demand subscriptions can redeem the offer, which will come to an end on June 9.
Available series include, Big Little Lies, Twin Peaks, Sex & The City, Billions, The Affair, Deadwood, and Dexter as well as legendary shows The Sopranos and The Wire.
To activate the promotion head over to the ‘on demand’ section of the Sky Q homepage, or the Sky Box Sets section on Sky+.
Further to offering up their box sets for free, the company are partly behind a new show which has been rated better than both Breaking Bad and Game Of Thrones; titled Chernobyl.
The new series, by Sky Atlantic and HBO, aims to tell the real-life story of the tragic events that unfolded leading up to, during, and after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in 1986, which killed countless people and harmed many more.
You can’t beat a good box-set binge, especially when it’s free!
