I so so so want to watch it.
Has anyone actually managed to find somewhere to stream it?
I loved the book and currently off work with a broken ankle. This would make my day. Hell it would make the whole week!

If you've got a firestick you could try putting kodi and then exodus on it.

Looks like a firestick is the only way, doesn't it? I don't have one and wanted to avoid buying but what can I do? sad

I'd love to see it too. Don't have a fire stick. Surely it will be bought by someone and brought over here?

I'm not even sure if it's on kodi/exodus, will check later. Thought it was a film but see it's on a USA only Netflix type setup. Never heard of Hulu before.

Not sure, isn't hulu a bit like netflix? And netflix own shows t to only be shown on netflix.
I'm really not an expert though, could be completely wrong.
What PrivatePike recommended seems to be a good idea. At least a few links there, I shall test them tonight when DS is in bed.

Massive crosspost!
Yes, Hulu isn't even available in UK, afaik.

The first 3 episodes are on UK Turks on Kodi.
I've just spent a very productive afternoon off binge watching blush

ShyOyster Thu 27-Apr-17 15:04:48

Oh dear. I'm green with envy. I need to see it.
What's the earliest acceptable bedtime for a 4yo? 3:30pm ok?

Nousernameforme Thu 27-Apr-17 15:16:31

so download kodi to the tv and it's on there yes?

PossumInAPearTree Thu 27-Apr-17 15:25:43

You'll need uk Turks add on.

Nousernameforme Thu 27-Apr-17 15:30:53

ok can i do that straight on tv or will it need pc?

Nousernameforme Thu 27-Apr-17 15:31:56

sorry that sounds a bit rude I've never used kodi before and i would love to see this just reread the book again

PossumInAPearTree Thu 27-Apr-17 15:38:23

If you've got a firestick you should be able to do it straight on the tv.

Not sure if you just have a smart tv. I always use the firestick and when I put exodus on it I didn't need the PC.

Is it on the firestick? I think I've got that... Great!

coldcanary Thu 27-Apr-17 16:06:17

I struggled with that seo link after my fire stick updated and dumped Kodi for me hmm. Alphr is the site I ended up using.

Nousernameforme Thu 27-Apr-17 19:16:22

I've just tried to do that on kodi on pc and it wasn't having any of it I don't know if it is a different version or what but never mind.
It's bound to be out on dvd at some point and probably amazon prime before that. American gods is on hulu and that's coming to prime.

ShyOyster Thu 27-Apr-17 20:22:07

I did what PrivatePike suggested, typed in "let me watch this handmaid's diary".
Delighted to report I'm half way through the first episode.
Thank you!!!

Well that's odd because all I can find on that website is a 1990 film.
