It’s well-documented that besides the obvious legality issues, piracy brings a whole host of risks to users, including possible infections from viruses and other malware, and that these lead to data breaches of everything from browsing activity to banking login details.
To legally and safely see the shows that are most widely pirated in South Africa, go to these streaming services:
The Blacklist on Netflix
We just cannot get enough of James Spader as erudite criminal mastermind Red Reddington – and neither can audiences, it seems. With 91% on Rotten Tomatoes, The Blacklist isn’t going anywhere. Seasons 1 to 5 are available to stream on Netflix.
Lucifer on Netflix
It’s become TV legend, the story of Netflix saving the cancelled FOX show and resurrecting it for a fourth season. That, and the way Tom Ellis, who plays the actual devil, got a brand-new, beefed-up physique for the latest outing. All four seasons are on Netflix.
Season 5B of Vikings is first and only on Showmax. Lagertha has fallen and Ivar now rules Kattegat. But as the other sons of Ragnar recover from this blow, they find some unlikely allies, leading to an epic confrontation with their brother in this sensational season conclusion.
Titans on Netflix
Season 1 of DC’s Titans is available on Netflix. After striking out on his own, Batman’s former partner Dick Grayson encounters a number of troubled young heroes in desperate need of a mentor.
S1-2 of HBO’s Westworld are both on Showmax. The brilliant second season starts right after the bloody climax of Season 1. The survivors of the Westworld massacre fight for survival, but the androids are now realising that things are not as simple as they thought.
