What is the best history streaming service? In regards to wargaming, that would be military history, but any historical topic will count.

I'm in Australia, and we now have a lot of different streaming services to go with our one monopoly cable service.

The "Military History" channel is region locked to the US, but can be viewed by VPN I think. Is it worth it?

What about the National Geographic channel on Disney+? They don't seem to have much historical content I could see.

Does anyone stream the Sharpe TV Series on the Peninsula war? I know Netflix did at one stage but they seem to have removed it years ago.

There is a free streaming channel in the U.S. called Pluto TV. It has both the Military Channel and the History Channel.

In Australia it's a bit of a crap shoot to be honest. I'd take a close look at ABC iview and SBS on Demand's catalogue and see what docos are on there. Netflix and Amazon Prime tend to have a good selection, but really you can't beat Youtube.

I elected not to get the military history channel here in the states because I haven't seen anything new on it in years maybe decades, so in my opinion don't bother with it.

I've subscribed to virtually all the available streaming services here in Oz, and to date Youtube has given me the best bang for buck. I honestly didn't expect that outcome, but no regrets paying for that subscription. Stan has been the least valued by far.
