So much exciting A Discovery of Witches TV news to share with US and Canadian viewers!!

Did you hear that TIME named us one of the best shows to watch in 2019? And did you hear that Sundance Now and Shudder have a special gift for those of you who sign up for a free trial over the holidays? Yep, if you sign up for your free trial you will be able to see episodes 1 and 2 starting on December 25! That’s three weeks before the show is available to stream. And if you are already a subscriber you will have access to it too!

Many of you have asked how to sign up for these subscription streaming services and there are a lot of different ways to do it which I’ve outlined here.

1. Go directly to Sundance Now ( or Shudder ( to sign up for a free trial and monthly or yearly subscription. Both are offering free 7-day trials at the moment. Once you have an account you can sign in, watch it on your favorite device, download the Sundance Now app to make your life that little bit easier, and even send it to your television through Roku, Chromecast, Apple TV or some other gizmo you might already have.

2. You can also establish an account through your Roku device or Apple TV with Sundance Now and Shudder. If you have one of these devices you know how to do this. If you don’t have one of these devices, you are now frustrated and confused. Fear not. Read further…

3. If you have an Amazon Prime account, you can add Sundance Now or Shudder to your paid channels (like Acorn or Britbox or similar). You also get a free trial period, and then you pay monthly/yearly through your Amazon Prime account. Then you can watch the show wherever you watch your other Amazon Prime content. For me, that means a complicated process that somehow magically goes through my DVD player, or my Dish Box, or something attached to my tv that a young person set up for me and which I cannot fully walk you through. If you don’t know how to do this, my recommendation is to find a young person and ask them. They will set it up for you in approximately 2 minutes. #trustme

No matter how you sign up, or where, or how you plan on watching it (phone, tablet, computer, television, or all of the aforementioned), don’t forget to check in with Sundance Now and/or Shudder between Christmas and the New Year. Because even if you’ve been naughty this year, Sundance Now and Shudder may have something nice for you–episodes 1 and 2 of one of the best shows of 2019! Tell everybody you know and let’s get this party started!
