Humans are a strange species. Some of us, when not busy doing our own thing, like to sit in front of the gogglebox and watch the lives of others play out -- or, the contrived, semi-scripted lives of others, anyway. From Keeping Up with the Kardashians to Made in Chelsea, NBCUniversal is responsible some of the most popular reality TV shows. It makes so many, in fact, that today it's launched a new streaming service in the UK and Ireland created specifically for avid people-watchers.

It's called Hayu, and for £4 or €5 per month, you get on-demand access to more than 3,000 episodes from NBCUniversal's reality TV catalogue. In addition to all previous episodes of shows like Top Chef and The Real Housewives, the service includes over 50 series that've never been broadcast on UK TV. Furthermore, new episodes will be added to Hayu on the same day they air in the US, so you won't have to wait to find out what Kim K ate for breakfast on some random Tuesday.

There's a social element to Hayu, too. Alongside newsfeeds that keep you up to date with the latest gossip, you can stalk the social media accounts of the big "stars" from within the service. You can also share specially prepared clips from various shows to your social networks. Hayu is available now in Android and iOS app form, through your browser and on some connected TVs. And if you're not sure you want to pay £4 per month to slowly destroy your brain cells, there's a 30-day free trial period to take advantage of.
