Is it really possible to have spoilers about something the History Channel airs?

When it's a historical drama, not a documentary? Sure.
I mean, just because Downtown Abbey
is a period piece set during the Great War or the Roaring Twenties doesn't mean it can't have spoilers.
But, none of the characters in Downton Abbey are based on real historical figures. Ragnar Lodbrok did exist, and so while the details of the show may be different, If the show lasts long enough, you could expect certain documented events in his life to happen on the show. Like the raids into France, and the births (or adoption) of his other sons like Ivar the Boneless.
