Great British Baking Show: Which seasons are on Netflix? Where can I find the others?

Great British Baking Show: Which seasons are on Netflix? Where can I find the others?

When PBS brought The Great British Bake-Off to the United States, giving Americans the chance to watch this amazing show free and legally, it also renamed the series The Great British Baking Show, renumbered its seasons, and aired those GBBO seasons out of order.

It’s wonderful that we now have The Great British Baking Show, but the result is definitely confusing.

In 2018, for example, The Great British Bake-Off season three aired on PBS, but Netflix is already streaming a Great British Baking Show season three—because that’s actually Great British Bake-Off season six.

See what I mean? Meanwhile, now that Netflix is airing the Channel 4 version, it has started its own renaming and renumbering. Netflix also once had the PBS seasons, but removed them.

In 2022, the free streaming service The Roku Channel—not to be confused with the device—added seasons one to seven, which included seasons PBS aired out of order, but also the first two seasons, which have never been available before in the U.S.

To try to clear up the confusion, and to facilitate easy watching of seasons you may have missed, I’ve created the chart below.

I’ll update it as new seasons become available in the UK and the US, on television and via streaming and other media.
