Where to watch The Simpsons in Australia
If no beer and no TV make you go crazy, we've got just the solution. Well, half of it. Here's how to get your fix of The Simpsons Down Under.
Even after 28 years, 617 episodes and a feature-length movie, The Simpsons shows little sign of slowing down. Homer continues to rope poor Marge into his haphazard schemes, Bart keeps on raising hell for his fellow Springfieldians and Lisa remains stubbornly determined to eke out a normal life in spite of the impossible odds stacked against her. Sure, the animation quality may have improved, but the world's favourite yellow-skinned family is still as dysfunctional as ever. For a long time, keeping pace with all of the Simpsons's shenanigans meant playing by Channel Ten's schedule and sitting through commercial break after commercial break. Thanks to digital storefronts like iTunes and Google Play, though, that's no longer the case. Now you can download the latest seasons of The Simpsons to your computer, your tablet or your smartphone and watch them wherever and whenever you like. The only catch is that the digital shelves go back no further than Season 20. Everything before that is currently unavailable for download, with the exception of seasons one, two, and three.
When do new episodes of The Simpsons air in Australia?
New episodes of The Simpsons come to Australian free-to-air TV a few days after they air in the US. Currently, Network Ten airs the latest episodes on Wednesday nights at 8:30pm-9:00pm on Channel ELEVEN. Digital storefronts operate on a similar schedule with episodes available for download roughly two days after they air in America.
