Blinkbox has got a juicy offer for you to sink your teeth into – free pilot episodes of hit shows including True Blood, The Following and Supernatural.
Pilot episodes of hit cop epic The Wire. Cold War-era sleeper cell drama The Americans are also up for grabs, as is issue episode one of comic book series Arrow (pictured).
Seasoned Wire-heads at Recombu Digital are sceptical of how much of a teaser The Wire’s pilot will be. The first series of the show is the dictionary definition of a slow-burner and requires patience and clearance of a three episode hump in order for it to get going. That said, there’s nothing from stopping you buying the entire first series for £14.99.

There’s more choice than ever before thanks to services like ours and our insights told us that customers relished the opportunity to try TV before committing to purchase. After all, life’s too short to watch something that you’re just not into.
“We think you should be able to enjoy great TV all year round, anytime and anywhere, not just when programmes are scheduled. We’re confident that we have the best selection of great TV, so offering a taster for free seems like a good way to introduce people to our service. We’re delighted to say be able to say ‘try TV on us.’”
All pilots are available on this ‘try before you buy’ basis on a limited period so if you’re keen to download some freebies fill your boots while the going’s good.
