Like with Game Of Thrones, the only way to watch Chernobyl is via Foxtel.

Having achieved widespread critical acclaim "Chernobyl" racked up almost 2 million people for its very 1st episode and has gone on to achieve a 96% on Rotten Tomatoes and achieved 9.7/10 on IMDB, beating Planet Earth, Breaking Bad and Band of Brothers.

With so many options, it can be challenging to choose which show to start with so we've compiled a list of some of the best television shows available to you through the HBO channel.

Russian Federation suspected of nuclear testing, says USA
The Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) said in a statement that it had not detected any unusual activity. Speaking at the Hudson Institute, Ashley said Russia's nuclear activities would help it improve its weapons capabilities.

Just in case you're still on the fence about watching the historical drama, which is now three episodes in, I have another tidbit of information that might sway you: Chernobyl is now ranked as IMDB's highest-rated TV series in history. The second and third episodes both reached over a million viewers, which is pretty awesome, and it's presumed that even more people are tuning in after the fact via HBO Go and HBO Now. If a show's small sample size of episodes are solid, this can be enough to shoot it high into the rankings. Valery Legasov (Jared Harris) and Soviet Deputy Prime Minister Boris Shcherbina (Stellan Skarsgård) consider using lunar rovers to remove radioactive debris, while Ulana Khomyuk (Emily Watson) faces government hurdles in determining the truth about the cause of the explosion. The fans are waiting eagerly for the fourth episode now.

Chernobyl Episode 5 debuts Monday night (June 3) at 9:00 p.m. ET. You can try the one-month free trial of HBO NOW.

The next week episode will not be the type of episode that we have been watching, although we have been through three episodes, and the fourth one would be released in some hours. Co-produced by HBO and Sky Atlantic, the mini-series already has an impressive rating of 9,7/10 on IMDb, which shows a strong public consensus.
