A Happy 2017 to you! Without further ado, let’s get to the shows that will help us ring in the new year and give us hours of fabulous British, Aussie, Kiwi, Canadian, and Irish TV entertainment.
By my count, 215 new programs and program seasons from the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada premiered stateside in 2016. Of them, here are my picks for the best 20 that were brand-spanking-new to the US.
For stateside British TV fans who can’t get enough of telly from the UK, there is more coming by way of BritBox, the new SVOD service from BBC Worldwide and ITV.
You had to have known that this list was coming, right?
Scotland is one of my favorite places to visit, and Wales is a country I need to explore more of, but we can all get glimpses of both from theses Scottish and Welsh TV shows streaming stateside right now.
Netflix has finally given subscribers what most of us have wanted for a long time: the ability to download shows and watch them without an internet connection.
Brokenwood, New Zealand. Where the locals are quirky, the country music is kickin’, and corpses are found high and low (at least when they don’t go missing).
Whether the weather outside is frightful or fantastic, chillax in front of your favorite telly screen with some terrific British TV this month, including the premieres of new and returning series and holiday specials.
