How to watch Chernobyl online in the US:

Considering this haunting drama was a co-production between HBO and Sky, it will come as no surprise that HBO is the go-to place to watch Chernobyl online in the US. 

The good news here is that HBO does offer a few packages, which means you get some choice in how much you pay. Most of these packages are pretty flexible which means you can sign up for one month, watch the whole miniseries and then cancel your account.

HBO offers free trials on all of its packages, which helps soften the blow. Prices start at $14.99 a month with HBO and go up depending on which package you choose.

You can watch the whole show on HBO right now.

 How to watch Chernobyl online in the UK: 

If you're watching from the UK then you get two options for watching the show - either through Sky Atlantic or via a Now TV Entertainment Pass.  

We all know that Sky can be expensive, so be sure to check out our dedicated Sky TV deals and packages guide to make sure you're getting today's best prices and offers.

If you want to watch Chernobyl online as cheap as you possibly can, NowTV is the way to go. It offers a 7-day free trial, enough time to catch the whole show.

Or If the idea of cramming an emotional roller coaster like this into one week feels a bit too much, (we wouldn't blame you!) then you can also get three months of NowTV Entertainment for just £17.99 (25% discount). 

But here's the catch (there's always one!) Chernobyl will come off NowTV on July 3 so you really don't have long to watch it anymore, better get viewing!

And if you're out of the country and still want to watch shows from your Sky or Now subscriptions, then you'll need to download and install a VPN as described above.
