For discerning viewers seeking the best TV shows and movies from across the globe, SBS On Demand has proven itself to be a must-stream destination. Every month through 2019, SBS On Demand will be adding new shows and movies that will continue to delight and enthrall viewers across Australia. This is just a taste of what's ahead: 

Das Boot

December 2018
It is Autumn 1942, and 40 men are heading towards their first ever mission in an increasingly brutal war, all cramped within a metal vessel. Personalities clash and loyalties shatter as they are tried by the unspeakable horrors of war. Will they live to make it back ashore? Meanwhile, hundreds of miles away, Simone Strasser’s world is quickly spinning out of control. Deep into an impossible love affair that has her torn between the two sides. Das Boot stars Lizzy Caplan, James D’Arcy, Tom Wlaschiha, and Vicky Krieps.

Berlin Station Season 3

December 2018
Season 3 takes place over the course of 11 days in Eastern and Central Europe as Chief of Station Valerie Edwards (Michelle Forbes) guides her team through the high-stakes relationship between Russia, the United States and its vulnerable NATO allies. Is the Kremlin involved in any foul play that could upend a thinly-held World Order?

Pagan Peak

Early 2019
When a gruesomely staged body is found, propped up on a mountain pass in the Alps close to the German-Austrian border, two detectives are sent to investigate. For German detective Ellie, this is the first real challenge of her career. Her Austrian counterpart Gedeon seems to have lost any ambitions in his job. Very soon, they discover more crime scenes with symbolically posed victims, reminiscent of pagan rituals. It all seems to be part of a bigger, sinister plan.

Project Blue Book

Early 2019
A dramatic series from Academy Award Winner, Robert Zemeckis, chronicling the true, top secret United States Air Force investigations into UFO-related phenomena in the 1950s and 60s known as Project Blue Book. The series follows Dr. J. Allen Hynek (Aiden Gillen), a brilliant college professor recruited by the U.S. Air Force to spearhead this clandestine operation that researched thousands of cases, many of which were never solved. Each episode will draw from the actual files, blending UFO theories with authentic historical events from one of the most mysterious eras in United States history.

Trapped Season 2

Early 2019
In Season 2 of Baltasar Kormakur’s Icelandic thriller, we follow Police Inspector Andri and his new partner Hinrika, who has been promoted since the events of the first season. Andri is working in his old job in Reykjavik when he is entrusted with a controversial and highly political case - an impoverished sheep farmer from the Icelandic Highlands has set himself on fire in front of the capital's government headquarters, trying to kill the Minister of Economic Affairs. Initial research leads Andri to a remote valley in the north of the island. The picturesque mountainous landscape turns out to be a place of bitter conflict - the local farmers are fighting against the interests of international business sharks, driving the expansion of a state-of-the-art geothermal centre.

Robbie Hood

A mischievous 6 x 10 minute online comedy series produced exclusively for SBS On Demand. It’s the heart-warming story of three friends who are rectifying injustices they see in their community.
