​You Can Now Watch Every Episode Of Chernobyl For Free

If you didn't get round to watching Chernobyl - or found yourself unable to having to stop for a mid-season breather because it all proved a bit too much - there's now a way to watch it all for free.

Of course, if you're a Sky customer you're laughing, as the miniseries is available to watch on demand.

But if you're not, all five episodes have now also been added to NOW TV - which you can get in on with a 14-day free trial.

Simply opt for the NOW TV Entertainment Pass, which is on offer for new customers for a two-week trial period.

After the free period, the pass will set you back £14.99 a month. However, the deal is completely contract-free, meaning if you don't want to continue being a NOW TV customer you can simply cancel it.

The show will be on there until 4 July, so you have a little bit of time to make use of the offer, but it won't be around forever.

Once you've finished Chernobyl, you'll then also have more than 300 box sets on demand to work your way through.

Mind you, you should probably make sure you box off HBO's bleak historical drama first, as it instantly became the top-rated TV show ever on IMDb - leaping ahead of the likes of Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad and Planet Earth 2.

As you can probably guess, the show follows the horrifying aftermath of the infamous nuclear reactor disaster of 1986.

Since the first episode aired at the beginning of May, it has received rave reviews from audiences and critics alike, with BBC awarding it a full five stars, writing: "To say Sky/HBO's new mini-series Chernobyl is thought-provoking would be like describing Usain Bolt as quite a fast runner, or the water under the Antarctic sea ice as a bit chilly.

"This is TV that doesn't just get you thinking, it stops you sleeping."

Talking about the success of Chernobyl, Zai Bennett, Sky's Director of Programmes said: "This jaw-dropping Sky Original is gripping viewers across the UK and beyond for good reason - the writing and production are second to none, and the story is both fascinating and utterly tragic. This is must-watch TV, and we're delighted that audiences are enjoying it as much as we are."

The show is available to stream now on NOW TV and Sky on Demand.
