What's the collective noun for neurotic werewolves? Russell Tovey as George in the UK Being Human and Sam Huntington as Josh in the Canadian-American Being Human.

The international arm of Zodiak Media Group, which owns the British show's production company, Touchpaper Television, and a piece of the adapted version, has made available seasons 1 through 4 of the original Being Human for streaming starting Oct. 15. Since season 4 has not broadcast yet even in the UK--it filmed late this summer and is slated to air on BBC Three early next year--so the deal's inclusion of season 4 is prospective.
The first two seasons of the Canadian-American version will be available to stream in January 2012. This date is coordinated with the broadcast premiere of season 2 on Syfy and CTV/Space, but it may turn out that season 1 becomes available first, and the new season 2 slightly later.
The UK Being Human is also available in North America on home video up through season 3. And season 1 of the Canadian-American Being Human drops on Nov. 15.
Netflix, which has recently emphasized broadening its international online content and particularly its lucrative television series availability, also just signed a deal to stream AMC's horror series The Walking Dead.
