Future shows that will stream exclusively on Hulu include Mrs. America, starring Cate Blanchett, and The Old Man with Jeff Bridges.
It’s perhaps no surprise that Devs has been released to broad critical acclaim and is one of the best Hulu shows available to watch right now. As well as Ex-Machina and The Beach, Devs creator Alex Garland also wrote the screenplays for 28 Days Later and Never Let Me Go, so he’s no slouch when it comes to turning sci-fi themes into thrilling dramas with widespread appeal.

Devs UK release date: can you watch Devs in the UK?
Not yet. The rights to Devs have been picked up by the BBC, and while a release date hasn’t been officially confirmed, most rumours point to a likely April UK release date for Devs. While we’re not ones to blindly buy into backroom gossip, this would seem to make sense, as by mid-April Devs will have finished its exclusive Hulu run in the US, and wider distribution would be a logical next step.
This means when it does go live in the UK, Devs will almost certainly be available to stream on BBC iPlayer.
If you’re currently visiting the UK from a country where Devs is available, this means that you won’t be able to watch the latest episode like you would at home – unless you grab a VPN, of course, in which case you can just point yourself back your country of residence and access the streaming service you normally watch Devs on as usual.
How to watch Devs in Australia
TV fans in Australia are in luck, as Devs premiered Down Under on March 8 and is currently airing Sunday nights at 8.30pm on Fox Showcase. That means that you can also watch Devs using the Foxtel Now streaming service, which starts at just $25 a month. It even offers a FREE 10-day trial so you can see if it’s right for you.
If you happen to be going abroad and are worried that geo-blocking will stop you from watching Devs with Foxtel Now like you normally would back home, don’t worry – just use a VPN to point yourself back to Australia and you’ll be able to stream as usual.
How to watch Devs in Canada
TV aficionados in Canada are also in luck when it comes to watching Devs. The show airs at 10pm Thursday nights and started on March 5, more or less right in time with Hulu and the US, on FX’s Canadian channel.
That means that you can also watch Devs in Canada on the network’s companion FX NOW streaming service. However, the app isn’t available on a standalone basis, only for FX cable subscribers . Consult your local provider for pricing if you haven’t already got FX as part of your deal.
Already pay for FX but find yourself abroad for the next episode of Devs? Watch just like you would at home by using a VPN to magically reappear in Canada and gain access to the FX NOW app as per usual.
