If you love British Dramas, Asian Dramas, or series from down under, then you’ll want to know the best of what’s new to period dramas and romance this month in the world of international streaming. For this list, you can find information from the streaming sites Acorn TV, BritBox, Dramafever, and Viki.

Acorn TV mostly includes British, Australian, and New Zealand dramas. BritBox is all British. And then there’s Dramafever and Viki that focus mostly on Asian Dramas (Korean, Chinese, Taiwanese, etc…).

A few highlights this month include the award-winning period drama series, A Place to Call Home, the new British series Love, Lies, and Records and the upcoming Korean paranormal romance on Viki, Black Knight.

Now while this list is all about the streaming sites that focus on international content, you can look at our other lists for Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu for more choices as well!


THE SILVER STAR RECOMMENDATIONS

Next to certain titles, you’ll find a silver star. This means that the Silver Petticoat Review Editors have seen and recommend these choices. The silver star represents our personal favorites. From the guilty pleasures to the award-winners, these are the ones we might recommend from one friend to another. That’s not to say that some of these other titles aren’t also fabulous just that these are the ones we’ve seen and love and could watch more than once! Of course, we haven’t had a chance to see the new shows yet.
