Novelist, poet, inventor and all-round marvel Margaret Atwood is no stranger to the realm of film and TV, having seen her novels The Robber Bride, Payback and Surfacing all make the jump from paper to the big and small screens. In 2017, Atwood added a third screen to that list, when her 1985 novel The Handmaid's Tale was adapted into a 10-part online series thanks to American streaming service Hulu. In 2018, a second season was released that further explores the grim dystopia past the source material's original ending.

A third season was also announced in May 2018.

The plot

Starring Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men), Joseph Fiennes (American Horror Story) and Alexis Bledel (Gilmore Girls), the brutally dark series explores a near-future world where fertility rates have fallen so low women have been forced into positions of sexual slavery – "handmaids" in the insidious language of the world's totalitarian government.

    How can I watch SBS on demand through Netflix?

      Hi Patricia,

      Thanks for your question. SBS On Demand is its own separate service to Netflix, though it works much the same. You can sign up for a free account at the SBS On Demand website and then watch shows like The Handmaid’s Tale either on your computer, on your phone, through a smart TV or through many other streaming devices, just like Netflix.

      I hope this answers your question!

      Regards,

      Matt

      Hi Matt,
      I watch SBS on Demand on my computer but I still don’t know how to find it on my smart TV and through Neflix.

      Hi Pat,

      I’m afraid you won’t be able to find it through Netflix, as they are two separate services and cannot be watched through each other. As for your Smart TV, it will depend on the brand and age of your particular model as to whether it will have an app for SBS On Demand. If it does, you’ll find it in your TV’s app store, which should be accessible through a menu button on your remote.

      Let me know if you have any more questions!

      Regards,

      Matt

      Hi Matt, There is no Menu button on our remote, only a Sync Menu button which produced nothing. We have a Sony TV -RMT-TX102D and it is less than a year old. There is no App store that I can find.

      Hi Pat,

      Unfortunately, Sony’s Smart TVs do not currently support downloading new apps, so if you’re looking to watch SBS On Demand on your TV, you’d need to look at purchasing a separate streaming device like Google Chromecast. You could also potentially connect your computer/laptop to your TV using an HDMI cable and watch it that way, though that can be a tricky process in some cases.

      My apologies for the bad news, Pat!

      Regards,

      Matt
