UK True Blood fans will be able to download the latest episodes of the show’s fifth series from blinkbox and iTunes just a day after they’re broadcast on FX:UK.
In the new series Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and her supernatural cohorts have a disturbing new political power play to deal – a growing war between the Vampire Authority and ‘vampire fundamentalists’ – and the outcome could decide the fate of human existence.
HBO Home Entertainment UK says fans of the show will be able to own episodes months ahead of the DVD and Blu-ray release.
Colin Smith, Director, International Digital Distribution for HBO said: “True Blood is one of the many jewels in HBO’s crown, with Season 5 already critically acclaimed in the US and it is part of our ongoing strategy to make this content available to viewers in a variety of formats so they can immerse themselves in their favourite shows whenever, wherever.
“Fans will now be able to own the new series in digital format the day after broadcast.”
