The documentary is being hailed as a must-see but is McMillions on Netflix? Here’s how to watch the acclaimed mini-series.

In recent years, we’ve noticed a surge in the public’s desire for great documentary content. Fortunately, streaming services like Netflix have done a terrific job of bringing us so many compelling offerings.

From Tiger King to Crip Camp, 2020 has already seen the release of some phenomenal non-fiction projects.

Interestingly, while people have complained about the absence of McDonald’s Monopoly in the face of pandemic, a documentary has arrived to explore the case of “Uncle Jerry”.

This criminal mastermind manipulated the fast-food retailer’s promotional game between 1989 and 2001, landing millions of dollars in the process.

McMillions sheds light on how he did it, chronicling the escalating crime along with accounts from McDonald’s executives, the FBI and more.

It first premiered on HBO back in February 2020, earning acclaim from both audiences and critics. Now that it has finally reached UK screens, how can we watch it?

Is McMillions on Netflix? How to watch

No, McMillions is not available on Netflix.

In total, there are six episodes and the first one aired on Sky Documentaries on Wednesday, May 27th 2020.

For those of you with Sky, you can find the recently launched channel at 114. However, there will be many of you without Sky who are still keen to see it…

Not to worry though, as the entire series is available to stream over on Now TV. It’s definitely worthwhile binge material; if you don’t have a subscription, they’re currently offering a seven-day free trial.

That’s more than enough time to work through six episodes!

They have a wealth of other great content too, with the likes of Gareth Evans’ recently acclaimed Gangs of London also available.

With that in mind, it’s definitely a service worth having.
