Well, I am going make it easier for you and give you a list of current most popular movies/shows available from streaming services.

1) VIKINGS (S1-3)

If you’re a fan of blood, gore, and great battle scenes, you’ll love Vikings.

Vikings tells the stories of the Viking Ragnar Lothbrok, a Norse farmer who rises to become the king of medieval Scandivania. Ragnar, an ambitious warrior, thirsts for explorations and raids of other countries.

Vikings is not just about war and blood. It is also a story about family, brotherhood, and deceit. In addition to the great actions, the acting is great and the characters are fascinating.

Do you like the idea of watching a long series of Gladiator? Rome is an entertaining series, with similar levels of actions and gore as Gladiator, but has more historical depth.

The show portrays the life of the rich and powerful as well as the common life of two Roman soldiers, Lucius Vorenus and Titus Pollo. There are plenty of violence, sex, murders, and political intrigue in this series.

How to Access Geo-Restricted Content

Due to licensing rights issues, content from Netflix, Amazon Prime, and other popular streaming sites is supposedly only available for viewing if you reside in the U.S.

So, if you are traveling abroad, the site will block you from accessing the content even if you are a subscriber. To bypass the geo-restriction, you would need to use Hotspot Shield.

Hotspot Shield enables you to get a virtual I.P. address from the U.S. so that you can bypass the geo-restriction.
