Netflix isn’t the only game in town when it comes to binge watching.

Foxtel will run a 14 hour marathon of Orange Is The New Black when the series debuts on June 12 — at the same time as Netflix makes it available, according to TV Tonight. That’s a whole lot of women-in-prison drama/comedy to digest if you’re that keen. The status of the show hadn’t been clear, with both Netflix and Foxtel boasting they would have series 3.
The series will run ad-free, with episodes then made available on-demand on Foxtel’s Anytime service immediately after it airs. Which at a purely technical level means that if you’re not worried about small details like narrative continuity, Netflix’s immediate availability of all episodes could allow you to jump ahead in Piper Chapman’s adventures in prison ahead of Foxtel.
