    If you have Fire TV Bob you can stream it on the Cinema app.

    No Fire TV. I will eventually have one for my wife’s TV, but that won’t help me now.

    Hopefully I don't get in trouble for this, but hdo.to. It can be spotty sometimes, but more times than not it's a great website.

    I wasn't going to watch this. My wife made me. First episode is flat out amazing and true to events and the reality of radiation exposure and poisoning. Even more so: they flat out truthfully portrayed the Soviet bureaucracy. This was the Soviet Union at the height of its power. Say the wrong thing, even by accident, that makes the State, or by extension, Communism, look bad? And you probably don't show up for work tomorrow. And no one asks why. The show is unflinching in its portrayal of the disaster, its consequences, and what was at the root of it all.

    Man, and I was all set not to like this because of the previews!

    There are a lot of extra layers of information found in Chernobyl podcast after each episode. Worth a listen. This docudrama is very true to fact and tasteful amounts of Hollywood sprinkled on it.

    If you guys need an online streaming site that is consistently good, just use pubfilmonline.net. I watch everything on there, but I subscribed to HBO just because it is more convenient and I dont have to wait for the shows to get uploaded. I watched Avengers on there and I just watched John Wick 3 last night on there. Most of the time it starts with decent camera shot bootlegs which I dont really care, but I know many people do, but they upgrade it to HD eventually when they get a copy of it.

    I have HBO via Roku and a subscription, but I'll be damned if I pay nearly $30 every time I want to see a movie, which is why/how I found hdo.to to begin with.

    Or I could just watch it for free. Why the hell would I pay any more than necessary?

    We are lucky the secretive and incompetent commies didn't turn all of Europe into a wasteland. If the liquidators were expendable, what about everyone else?

    Chernobyl always fascinated me and hell, I remember coming home in '86 and watching Peter Jennings report on "something" which happened. The gross negligence was almost second to none.

    One of the best series I've seen, but very sad and not very uplifting.

    The way the firefighter and the control room engineer dies OMFG.... Skin was pure puss from head to toe.

    I forget how old the control room engineer said he was, but did you see the look of the nuclear physicist face when he said... 24yrs old or whatever he was at the time...
