Default Downton Abbey

Just moved to TV. Have watched Downton Abbey on PBS back in Wisconsin.
Is it available on Comcast & Brighthouse? If so, please mention what channel or station it has been on here in TV. According to Parade it's supposed to start Jan 6th. Thanks Really love this show!

Default Roku

We use Roku to stream Netflix, which offers Downton. Newer TVs and DVDs have the streaming technology built in, so you do not need ROKU.

Suggestion: we use closed captions to translate some of the British jargon used 100 years ago.

Great show for those who appreciate such stories!

I too usually need subtitles to understand British words. Downton Abbey is on at least one of the Orlando/Gainesville area PBS channels. You might be able to get the DVD of some of the seasons from the Lake, Marion, and/or Sumter County Library systems.

I also love Downton Abbey and can't wait for the new season. I have Comcast and you can get it on channel 4 or in HD it is channel 440.

The new season started 3 weeks ago here in England. So far, so very good!! Shirley Maclean is better that I expected, she has some good lines, not many, but good all the same.
Enjoy when it arrives in the US
