True Blood Season 7 available to watch online in the UK
James R | On 19, Jun 2014
Season 7 of True Blood is now available to watch online in the UK as part of a Sky Box Set.
The show, by Six Feet Under and American Beauty creator Alan Ball, follows local waitress Sookie Stookhouse’s rollercoaster relationship with vampire Bill Compton. With “Tru Blood”, a synthetic form of the red stuff, now readily accessible, the series finds vampires able to venture out from their former hiding places, while humans – though no longer on the official menu – still struggle to control their fear.
The series has had a phenomenally successful run since it began in 2008, even spawning rumours of a musical. In 2014, it returned for a seventh run on Fox UK – and, for the first time, was available to stream legally for non-Sky customers. FOX UK is one of several channels available on subscription VOD service NOW, including Sky Atlantic and Sky Living. With an Entertainment Membership, people without Sky can watch True Blood online live and on-demand for £6.99 a month, with no contract.
That means that as the fanged series returns as a full box set – count ’em, seven seasons – for Sky customers, NOW subscribers can also binge their way through from the beginning right to the very end.
