One of the best new shows to premiere this year is CBS’ new live action Supergirl series starring Melissa Benoist, Calista Flockhart, and Mehcad Brookes. Like numerous other his TV shows, Supergirl is available for purchase digitally for viewing across Microsoft’s numerous platforms such as the Xbox One, Windows 10 PC, and Windows Phone. In the U.S. (and other regions where the show has already aired), viewers can subscribe to the entire first season of Supergirl in either Standard Definition or High Definition for US$29.99 and for an unspecified amount of time, the entire first episode is being given away for free.
Those interested in checking out this new interpretation of the Supergirl character and her supporting cast can grab the pilot episode after logging into their Microsoft account on the series’ Movies & TV page. Alternatively, it can also be picked up within the Store app on Windows 10, the Movies & TV section on the Xbox One, or from within the Xbox Video app on Windows Phone. Naturally those using the same Microsoft account on all of their devices will be able to watch all their media purchases on the different platforms at no extra charge.
Supergirl follows the story of Superman’s cousin who tries to live her life on Earth while discovering her place in the world in Superman’s shadow. The show is produced by Andrew Kreisberg, the man behind DC Comics’ other superhero hits, Arrow and The Flash, but while those two series share the same universe and characters, Supergirl is entirely separate and airs on a different channel. The show’s vibe is very familiar to the other two series though, so fans of Arrow and The Flash should check it out.
