How to Watch Darkness Online without Cable

Darkness is a reality/competition series where three strangers are trapped underground and have to work together, traveling prehistoric caves, subterranean ancient cities, and mines that have been abandoned for centuries. The true test of mental and physical toughness is whether or not someone can survive in complete darkness. You’ve seen reality survival shows where people are naked, hungry, and lacking shelter – now see what happens when they end up in the dark.

The Darkness channel is Discovery. As this is the network that brought you Naked and Afraid, it shouldn’t be too surprising that they will also stream Darkness episodes.

If you keep reading we’re about to tell you how to be able to stream Darkness episodes on-demand or to watch the Darkness live stream.
