Easter week in 1916 was an important moment in Irish history. Now that history has been recreated in an epic cable miniseries. Starting on Sunday, April 24 at 9 p.m. ET, and airing across three consecutive nights, Rebellion is the new five-part miniseries on Sundance that depicts the Easter Rebellion in Ireland 100 years ago. If you’re without cable, you might be wondering how you can watch Rebellion online legally and live. Here are our suggestions to make that happen when the miniseries airs on Sundance.
The Sundance series is a fictionalized account of the events that happened over those five days in 1916. Based on the preliminary information, it appears to follow several women as a part of the rebellion movement. It stars Irish actresses Charlie Murphy, Ruth Bradley, and the notable Michelle Fairley, known for her portrayal of Catelyn Stark on Game of Thrones.
