New to SoHo and Neon in April

Nearly all of next month’s series premieres on SoHo and SoHo2 will be available to stream on Neon, often days before their linear debut.

Unfortunately, because of the production disruptions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the scheduled season four premiere of Fargo has been replaced by a repeat of From the Earth to the Moon.

The good news is this will be the first time the HBO Emmy-winner has been presented on NZ TV in full HD; it previously aired in 1440x1080i on Sky Box Sets.

Here are the highlights:


The high stakes six-part drama deals with an unfolding national emergency that threatens to engulf the country as the COBRA committee, a team comprised of Britain’s leading experts, crisis contingency planners and most senior politicians fights to ensure the protection of the people of Great Britain. Robert Carlyle (The War of the Worlds), Victoria Hamilton (The Crown), David Haig (Downton Abbey) and Richard Dormer (Game of Thrones) star.
