Channel 4 was one of the first television channels to introduce an online repeat catch-up service, and so it is suggested that many more people watched the series using this method. This is also supported by the fact that when events similar to the plot of the first episode caused a political scandal in the UK in 2015, the reference to the show (which was almost 4 years old at that point, as well) was generally familiar in the public.

The first series of ''Series/BlackMirror'' was well-anticipated in the UK, where it aired on Creator/Channel4 in December of 2011. It fit the MiniSeries programme typical to [[BritishBrevity British shows]] of higher production value, but was also atypical in being a {{postmodernis|m}}t drama, rather than a gritty {{realis|m}}t drama. It was also timed well to target the Millennials of the UK maturing into watching more adult programming. It was well-received, with the first episode receiving over 2 million viewers and the second over 1.5, putting it in the top 30 for the month. Additionally, the series has a 100% fresh rating on Website/RottenTomatoes.

The first series of the show may have been as acclaimed and popular as the later seasons have been, but did not leave such a big impression in society at the time; this is likely because of two main factors: the lesser prevalence of social media and of internet fandoms in 2011, and the lesser tendency of the British public to be as publicly obsessive compared to Americans.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The most popular episodes of Series One were "The National Anthem" and "Fifteen Million Merits", both of which do incorporate technology to some extent but are still more focussed on blaming HumansAreBastards, both for the CrapsackWorld and for the ills of technology.
* LateArrivalSpoiler: It's relatively common knowledge that [[spoiler:the Prime Minister fucks a pig without needing to]], that [[spoiler:Abi ends up a drugged-up porn star]], and that [[spoiler:Ffion is a cheater]]. Twists from the later seasons have been more closely-guarded, but then people may still be catching up.
