If your secret shame is reality TV, and you live in the UK, Ireland or Australia, then things are about to get a whole lot more disgusting with the launch of NBCUniversal’s new streaming service Hayu.

You’ll now be able to watch shows like Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Real Housewives as new episodes air in the US, as well as binge-watching more than 3,000 pure, brain-melting past episodes.

The platform will work across all major devices and costs £3.99 in the UK, €4.99 in Ireland or AU$5.99 for unlimited access, plus there’s a 30-day free day.

Hayu will also have social integration with all the stars of its shows, so you can almost reach out and touch them as you watch.

The company hasn’t given a specific launch date but Hayu is coming in March and you can add your email to the site so it will let you know when it does. If all goes well, no doubt this platform will fly in other countries too.

Now go get in your robe and await further instructions.
