ShowMax has warned subscribers that they only have 28 days left to watch Breaking Bad, as its licence will expire on 29 February.

The 5-season series has a total running time of nearly 47 hours, so binge watching it in a month will take some commitment.

“The decision was part of the normal process of retiring existing content and bringing on new content,” ShowMax told MyBroadband.

“We’ve got a significant lead in content and by constantly refreshing the catalogue we intend to maintain that point of differentiation.”

Although ShowMax is retiring Breaking Bad from its library, it will add a number of new shows and movies – including Watchmen, and all 9 seasons of Scrubs.
