Where to stream His Dark Materials on HBO online
If you’re looking to catch the all-new His Dark Materials series on HBO, you’ll need to get your streaming options in order. Where can you stream live?
His Dark Materials is the highly anticipated series based on the novels by Philip Pullman. It’s a chance to right the wrongs of the movie, The Golden Compass, starring Daniel Craig. Now you likely want to know how you’ll be able to stream His Dark Materials online.
You’ll need access to HBO to do this. Whether you have HBO Go or HBO Now, you’ll be able to get access to the very first episode tonight. You can sign up for HBO through Amazon Channels with your Amazon Prime membership. You’ll keep your payments in one place and pay the exact same as you would for HBO Now directly. Plus, you’ll still get the 14-day free trial if you haven’t had HBO in the past.
Streaming His Dark Materials internationally
Are there any other options? His Dark Materials is an HBO exclusive. So, if you’re in the United States, this is the only option. For those in Canada, you’ll need Crave. This is the only way to get access to HBO due to the exclusive licensing agreement with Bell Canada.
In the UK, you’ll be able to watch on BBC, which means it will be available to stream for free through BBC iPlayer. Great, right?
For other countries, you’re going to want to check your own deals that you have. Your local networks or streaming services will try to make it clear where the show is going to be available.
What’s the series about?
The HBO series is focused on the book series of the same name. Critics are already full of praise for it. This is far better than the movie you watched, bringing the full book series, including the polar bear, to life. If you thought the trailer was exciting, wait until you get to watch the very first episode of the series. It’s so highly anticipated that it’s already been renewed for a second season. Yep, it’s coming back for more!
Set in an alternate world, all humans have animal companions known as daemons. These daemons are manifestations of the human soul. The series follows orphan Lyra, who is living with the scholars of Jordan College, Oxford. When she learns a dangerous secret about Lord Asriel and Marisa Coulter, she goes on the search for her missing friend. That opens the world of kidnappings and a link to Dust, a mysterious substance.
This is a beautiful Victorian fantasy world that you won’t be able to resist as you get into it. And I also highly recommend the books!
