30+ binge-worthy boxsets to stream online in South Africa
Weekly releases may be the new thing in streaming video (which is borderline hilarious, considering it’s not new at all), but there’s something about the comfort of starting a boxset of a series, knowing that you won’t have to wait between episodes. Watching series episodes back to back works particularly well for easy-viewing mac-n-cheese equivalent shows, but it’s also essential for gripping dramas and thrillers that you’re seeing for the first time.
Find the perfect boxset to match your needs for your next series binge. Do note that most of these picks are for adults only, so put the kids to bed before you settle in to stream!
