Homeland being added to UK and Ireland Netflix today, there goes the weekend!

British and Irish folks looking for a weekend Netflix binge need look no further than Homeland. The first two seasons of the smash hit show are being added to the UK and Ireland Netflix collection today, March 13, for the very first time. Until now we've been able to get episodes pretty much as they air via the iTunes Store, but at a considerably higher price than a monthly Netflix subscription.

Homeland isn't the only new show making its ways to British and Irish Netflix screens, either. Also being added today are the first two seasons of American Horror Story.

I've not seen American Horror Story before, but Homeland is one of my absolute favorite shows on television. If you've never seen it – and you're a Netflix subscriber – I can't recommend checking it out enough. At the time of writing it doesn't seem to have been loaded up, so keep your eyes peeled throughout the day. Who's joining me in a weekend Homeland marathon?

The great thing about American Horror Story is that each season is self contained. 13 episodes to tell the story. That is it. Some of (ok, lots of) the same actors, but different stories. If I had to rank the seasons, it would be:

Season 2: Asylum
Season 1: Murder House (much like the original Star Wars became A New Hope, season 1 was originally just AHS, but got a subtitle after season 2 came out)
Season 3: Coven (not streaming yet)

I might suggest a new viewer start with season 2, for the absolute best.

Richard Devine says:

It's a U.S. series, well, both of them are. Since I'm in the UK I can't possibly offer any advice on U.S. Netflix I'm afraid.

iSRS says:

I think that Shotime keeps it's series off Netflix, et al, like HBO does because they have their own streaming service available to subscribers here in the States.

AmericaV6 says:

That's not accurate. For example, Netflix features Dexter, which is a Showtime series.
What I meant is that, being an american series, I couldn't find it on Netflix.

It's not on iTunes either, is it? (Or it wasn't last time I looked.) Which really sucks for you guys.

Go to UNBLOCK-US...YOU PAY $4.99 A MONTH AND YOU GET ACCESS TO NETFLIX IN ALL THE COUNTRIES!!! OTHER COUNTRIES HAVE A BETTER SELECTION ON NETFLIX THAN THE US OFFERS!!! IT WORKS ON JUST ABOUT ANY DEVICE INCLUDING PS3,PS4,XBOX 360, XBOX ONE, WII, ROKU,LAPTOP, IF YOU HAVE INTERNET IT WORKS WITH IT!!! IT ALSO SHOWS YOU STEP BY STEP ON EACH DEVICE, PLUS THE VIDEO ON HOW TO USE IT!!! I'VE USED IT FOR A FEW YEARS NOW AND IF YOU HAVE NETFLIX ITS WORTH THE $4.99 A MONTH...HOPE THIS HELPS...

Richard, "favourite" has a "u" in it.

In an article targeted exclusively at UK audiences, the least you can do is spell using standard English spellings. Buy a dictionary if you find it difficult, but please, make an effort.

Richard Devine says:

All articles on iMore are written in the same way, regardless of who an article may be "targeted" at. Consistency.

I don't like spelling things 'wrong' any more than you, but it's the way it is.

moroboshi says:

American authors on, The Guardian for example, never correct their odd American spellings for a UK audience. Writers spell as they were taught to spell.

I sincerely doubt Americans cannot understand things spelt using standard English. The rest of the English speaking world is forced to understand "American English", so a two way street seems entirely reasonable.

Deliberately spelling things incorrectly without any evidence (or even logical argument) to back it up reeks of poor management and is frankly unprofessional.

Peter Cohen says:

iMore's international staff and audience notwithstanding, we're published (as it were) in the United States and the majority of our audience are Americans - hence American English is our editorial standard. As I'm not managing editor of The Guardian I can't speak to their standards, only ours, and that is it.

moroboshi says:

Had three been studies to show Americans struggled to read English, then I could have understood your stance. As you didn't a link to any papers, I can only assume the decision was arbitrary. It's a shame, and it must irritate your non American writers just as it does your non American readers.

I guess I expected a little too much from a blog.

Team George says:

Thanks for the article Richard. Once Game of Thrones comes to the UK then I'll hop back onto the Netflix wagon. Really appreciate these kinds of updates.

Homeland is now on the UK site but strangely not searchable (I guess there's some indexing running in the background) - http://www.netflix.com/WiMovie/Homeland/70180387
