Is there anywhere to buy TV shows digitally?

    I know that in the US, you can buy TV Shows digitally through the likes of YouTube, Google Play & Itunes/Apple Store (along with movies too), but is there any equivalent here in Ireland?

    You can buy movies fine on Google Play & YouTube in Ireland, but not TV Shows which I find to be rather strange, unless there is some Irish law preventing the possibility of that happening that I am unaware off.

    Apple don’t do it here either. Not sure why. As far as I know the only people who do offer it here afaik are Sky -

    No law against it to my knowledge.

    Sky Store do box sets. Go to enter the show you're interested in and they'll show you the services you can stream or buy som.

    I don't think any of the big ones do it, you would probably need a VPN to do it from Ireland - all above board etc. The equivalent of being on holidays and buying while abroad. I thought Vudu do as my friend uses them, but after looking, he must be using a VPN or has a friend in the US doing it for him (he's not doing that).

    Private Internet Access and IPVanish are both decent VPN's, and both are free (after 100% cashback) on Topcashback, if you haven't a VPN and want to go that route. It also means you could use all of the other services too, legally.

    EDIT - If you are already aware of a VPN etc. I just posted it as not everyone is.

    I have heard of Justwatch and have found it useful, unfortunately, it seems like I can't access it on PC for some reason, even thou I can access it on my phone.

    Microsoft sell some TV shows but the selection seems quite limited.

    Looks like the others can't be bothered organising the rights although based on the amount of shows Microsoft have managed to clear maybe they decided it wasn't worth launching with such a poor selection.

    iTunes sells plenty of tv shows.
