Join Greg Davies as he puts five comedians through their paces in the exclusive Taskmaster, nominated for 2017’s BAFTA for Best Comedy Entertainment Programme, and the Emmy for Non-Scripted Entertainment. Watch as the UK’s finest comedians compete to prove their comedic creativity and complete bizarre and confusing tasks.

Why not check out Jon Richardson: Ultimate Worrier, where he attempts to discuss every single one of his many, many worries. Or you can watch your favourite comedies with classic shows like ‘Allo ‘Allo!, Birds of a Feather and Auf Wiedersehen, Pet.

For exclusive box sets check out the brilliant comedy show Bad Teacher, based on the hilarious movie of the same name, which follows Ari Graynor as an obnoxious and foul-mouthed ex-trophy wife. Or catch the The Michael J Fox Show as it follows one man’s struggle with a life-changing diagnosis.


Check back in on iconic TV series like The Bill and London’s Burning, or watch a new fave on demand like The Heart Guy, an Australian TV show following a big shot surgeon as he’s forced to return to his small home town after his fall from grace.


Are you a history buff looking for your fix? Binge on The Stuarts: A Bloody Reign box set, and retrace one of the most eventful periods in the British monarchy. For something more current check out Impossible Railways or Abandoned Engineering and learn about some of humanity’s greatest feats.


A cult classic, Yvette Fielding’s Most Haunted follows her and her gang of paranormal investigators as they find out what’s going bump in the night. If that’s not enough check out the spooky Ghost Adventures, a TV series from across the pond – you won’t sleep a wink tonight!
