Breaking Bad hitting Netflix UK one day after US broadcast

Final season of the hit drama will be available for streaming from 12 August

Want to catch the final few episodes of Breaking Bad as soon as possible? Legally? Better get Netflix.

In another sign that the world of television is rapidly moving away from the standard broadcasting model, it has been announced that the final season of the critically acclaimed US drama will be available in the UK exclusively through Netflix, with each episode appearing just one day after it is broadcast by AMC in the States.

Netflix, which already offers all previous episodes of Breaking Bad, will begin offering the new episodes from 12 August.
