Embedded above is the first episode of The Last of Us in full. Yes, HBO and Sky have uploaded the entire inaugural episode of the highly regarded TV adaptation on YouTube, and you can watch it right now for free.

The show, which is currently just two episodes deep, has been a big success so far. The critical reception has been glowing, and fans are pleased with how faithful a recreation of the game it's turning out to be. It marked the biggest debut for a new show in years, and has seen a record growth in audience from episode one to two.

Of course, not everyone has HBO Max or Now TV, and so haven't been able to join the conversation. Now, though, everyone can at least watch the first ep in full for free, through official channels.
