Why Vikings isn’t on Netflix in the United States
The United States Netflix doesn’t stream Vikings but there are two alternative streaming subscription options.
Both Hulu and Amazon carry Vikings but neither are wholly up-to-date with season 5 part 2 as of yet. These typically get released months after the show has finished on normal TV. It’s a shame that Netflix won’t carry the show, particularly because the History Channel clearly doesn’t mind the show residing on multiple platforms.

Much like the United States, Vikings is not streaming on Netflix in the UK. The series shares a similar home in the United Kingdom with Amazon Prime currently the home of Vikings.
