2019 Update: 230+ British TV Shows on Netflix Right Now

In some cases, we earn commissions from affiliate links in our posts.

Netflix is a fantastic source of British television programming, but because there's so much programming on their platform, it can be hard to find the good British shows. To make it a little easier, we've scoured Netflix to compile this list of what's on offer right now. This list was last updated in January 2019. In addition to updating the list, we also added in some selections from Canada, Ireland, and Australia.

I wouldn't say Netflix is the most comprehensive source for British TV, but it's a great place to start. They have a good mix of classics and big budget recent productions.

If you need more British TV than Netflix can offer, check out:

There's surprisingly little overlap between most of the services, and all the different platforms seem to have at least a handful of exclusive titles.
