Band Of Brothers is finally available on a streaming service other than HBO Max, as the WWII series arrives on Netflix.
Created by Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg, who are all too familiar with WWII fiction with Saving Private Ryan, Band Of Brothers is a ten-part miniseries based on Stephen E. Ambrose's best-selling book, and recounts the achievements and activities of the Easy Company, 506th Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division.

The story is based on true events and is critically acclaimed for its historical accuracy and realistic portrayal of the source material.
Now, the miniseries will reach a new audience, as it recently joined Netflix on 15 September. Up until that point, it was exclusively available on HBO Max, a subscription service that hasn’t had the same worldwide appeal as services like Netflix and Amazon Video
It’s believed the Netflix version will be shown in 4K, for whoever has a 4K TV, and fans are highly recommending watching the series repeatedly, as it’s apparently filmed in a way that rewards repeated viewings.
Fans are also suggesting a deep dive into the history of WWII, as the show closely follows real-life events, so an understanding of the time its set in, its locations and those involved reportedly makes the experience even better.
Luckily, there’s a variety of other Band Of Brothers material to try aside from the TV show, most notably the book by Stephen E. Ambrose, which inspired the creation of the series’ script.
There’s also a podcast released in 2021 to celebrate the series’ 20th anniversary, and a variety of other WWII TV shows and films also available on Netflix, like Saving Private Ryan, available on Netflix in certain parts of the world.
