Vikings is a wildly successful, loosely historical, drama that premiered in 2013, and is currently in its third season on the History Channel. It follows the story of the Viking warrior Ragnar Lothbrok, played by Australian actor Travis Fimmel, and his struggle to lead the Viking tribes and become King of Denmark.
Vikings is unfortunately not available for streaming on Netflix instant. Its exclusive streaming rights were acquired by Amazon, who is streaming the first two seasons of Vikings for free to Prime subscribers. Season three individual episodes are also available on Amazon, though not for Prime customers yet.
We’re hopeful that Netflix will eventually bring the Vikings to its streaming service, but with the rights tied up by Amazon, it’s not likely to happen any time soon.
Although a good deal of license was taken in terms of historical accuracy, Vikings delivers a gripping drama that’s well worth a watch.
