And since Vikings season 5B is hitting Showmax subscribers’ screens express from the US every Thursday, those 45 hours will be put to very good use, especially if you also want to catch up on all previous seasons, which are available on Showmax.
Once you’ve done that, take your pick from the best of HBO by dipping into the Golden Age of Pornography in season 2 of The Deuce starring James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal, or streaming all five seasons of “the best TV show ever”, crime drama The Wire.
There are also four seasons each of Power, Idris Elba’s Luther, and Being Mary Jane, plus the first seasons of The Chi and 50 Cents’ crime drama The Oath.
If it’s comedy you’re after, Showmax has seasons 1 to 5 of Brooklyn Nine-Nine plus a hilarious Adult Swim Collection that includes off-the-wall adult comedies Robot Chicken and Black Jesus. And there are loads of other binge-worthy shows on the platform that you won’t find anywhere else.
