Where & How to Watch Black Mirror Online or on Apple TV

Black Mirror Season 4 premiered on Netflix on December 29, 2017, the latest addition to the sci-fi, dystopic anthology that dates back to 2011. Originally produced by the BBC, Black Mirror was bought by Netflix in 2013, which means you need to be subscribed to Netflix to watch it. Netflix has since released twelve episodes of Black Mirror, split between seasons three and four. If you're wondering how a show that has produced 19 episodes total over the course of six years can be so anticipated and critically acclaimed, well, I guess you'll just have to watch to find out! Word of warning, though, Black Mirror is The Twilight Zone of the digital age—if you remember the extreme heeby jeebies you got from some of those old episodes, you might be prepared for the emotional impact of Black Mirror. So, if you're up for a creepy, thought-provoking experience and have a loved one or a pet to snuggle during the scary parts, let's go over how to stream Black Mirror online through your iPhone, iPad, Macbook, or Apple TV.
