UK customers can buy the entire first season of HBO political comedy Veep from BlinkBox on Monday (October 1). The website will be the only place to buy and own all eight episodes of the show in the UK.
Veep stars Emmy award-winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld) as US vice president Selina Meyer.
Inspired by Iannucci's The Thick of It and movie In The Loop, the show follows Meyer and her inner circle as they navigate the often choppy waters of the Washington political scene.
Alongside Louis-Dreyfus, Veep also stars Anna Chlumsky as Meyer's chief of staff; Matt Walsh as her press spokesman; and Tony Hale as her right hand man.
They do battle with Reid Scott's ambitious ambitious interloper Dan Egan and the smug White House liaison Jonah played by Tim Simons.
The launch of Veep on BlinkBox forms part of a deal between US broadcaster HBO and the Tesco-owned digital video store.
Sky has exclusive rights to broadcast all HBO shows on television and via video streaming as part of its major deal agreed last year for the launch of Sky Atlantic.
But HBO Home Entertainment UK has turned to Blinkbox as a way to make its portfolio of TV shows available to purchase through the digital distribution platform.
Alongside Veep, the deal means UK consumers can buy the second seasons of Emmy and Golden Globe-winning Game of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire via Blinkbox ahead of their release on DVD and Blu-ray.
Other HBO shows are available to buy from Blinkbox, including True Blood, Band of Brothers, The Wire, Sex and the City and The Pacific.
After purchase, these titles can be viewed on PC, Mac, Smart TVs, Blu-Ray players, connected set-top-boxes, iPad, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
