Have you already subscribed to OCS or are you planning to do so soon? The editorial team offers you a selection of the best series from the Orange SVoD service.

In the realm of the services of SVoD, Netflix is often mentioned, but there are others. Choose between Amazon Prime Video, Canal+ Series or SFR Play. And then there is also and above all OCS, which is increasingly lagging behind Netflix, both in terms of price and quality of content. Because OCS has nothing to be ashamed of in its catalogue: the service benefits from the wide range of HBO series. HBO is the American producer of programs such as Game of Thrones, True Detective, Silicon Valley, Westworld, The Soprano or Room 104. Quality series, it goes without saying. And at €9.99/month, OCS is definitely one of the best SVoD services of the moment.

The USSR then wants to stifle the affair or at least play it down, as the writers suggest. A vision that does not at all please the current Russia, which has also decided to make its own series on Chernobyl.
