Classic comic book hero The Flash has joined the CW’s small screen Arrow universe. Here’s where you can watch The Flash online in Australia.
Back in 2013, Warner Brothers announced a television show based on its iconic DC superhero The Flash would be aired on the CW network in the US. The show was developed by a list of sci-fi legends, including Greg Berlanti (Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow), Andrew Kreisberg (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, The Vampire Diaries) and Geoff Johns (Smallville, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice).
But thanks to the joys of international licensing, Aussies don’t get to watch this American TV show on broadcast TV. Fortunately, the brave new world of Internet TV has superhero fans well catered for. Read on to find out more about The Flash and the legitimate (and sometimes free) options you have for watching it now.
