What do The Americans, The Wire, True Blood and The Following have in common? You can download the first episode of each of them for free on blinkbox.
The Tesco-owned streaming service announced their “Try TV on us” offer this week, allowing customers to try the pilot episode of a string of TV series for free.
The service, which offers movies and TV on VOD without the need for a subscription, has reached an agreement with studios ranging from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, Warner Bros. and HBO to BBC Worldwide to run the special offer on a selection of popular titles until Monday 19th August.
Hit series available as part of the offer include True Blood and Supernatural, new US drama The Americans, chilling Kevin Bacon series The Following and the now legendary Baltimore crime saga The Wire.
Customers can try as many shows as they like during the offer period.
blinkbox CEO Michael Comish commented: “There’s more choice than ever before thanks to services like ours and our insights told us that customers relished the opportunity to try TV before committing to purchase. After all, life’s too short to watch something that you’re just not into.”
