September is nobody’s favourite month, as the weather takes a turn for the cloudy and terms start up again. But there’s still stuff to keep you entertained on the sofa this autumn, as Sky unleashes its latest original drama, Tin Star, starring Christina Hendricks and Tim Roth – with all episodes available at once. Ray Donovan, Insecure and Ballers continue their weekly outings, as Twin Peaks also draw to a close. Box sets, though, are where it’s at, as every episode of The Flash, Supergirl and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow become available, not to mention all seven seasons of The Walking Dead, ahead of Season 8 in October.
Don’t have Sky? You can stream all of the above live and on-demand through NOW TV, Sky’s contract-free VOD service, which costs £6.99 a month. For more information, click here.
Sky Cinema, meanwhile, has a diverse line-up to make going back to work after summer easier. There are stunning monsters in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, monstrous humans in Passengers, monstrously good jazz music in Ethan Hawke’s Chet Baker biopic, and volcanoes in the jaw-dropping Oscar contender Tanna.
Again, if you don’t have Sky, you can stream all of Sky Cinema live and on-demand through NOW TV, for £9.99 a month. For more information on that, click here.
