netflix weekly releases

It’s been less than a decade since Netflix pioneered the binge model, releasing the episodes of its original titles like House of Cards and Orange is the New Black all at once, thereby disrupting the television industry and changing how we all watch TV. But now, as intimidating competitors like Disney+ begin to emerge, Netflix may be changing how it does things.

The streaming platform is reportedly testing out weekly releases for a few titles, including the The Great British Baking Show, which shifted from a binge release to week-to-week this season. With that change for this incredibly popular reality series, could more Netflix weekly releases be in the future?

dickinson trailer

Imaginations, and corseted ladies-to-be, literally run wild in the Dickinson trailer starring Hailee Steinfeld as a young Emily Dickinson. But this isn’t the buttoned-up literary icon that you would imagine her as. In Apple TV+’s upcoming coming-of-age series, Steinfeld is a punk rock version of Emily Dickinson who dances wildly and throws up anachronistic hand signs because this isn’t your grandma’s period costume drama. Watch the Dickinson trailer below.

disney+ details

With two months left to go until the launch of Disney’s highly anticipated streaming platform Disney+, the only thing left is to weigh our options: Is it worth it to subscribe to a whole new streaming service? Well, Disney is certainly making a good case for it, with the impressive slew of original TV shows and movies coming to Disney+, as well as a surprisingly low price for the amount of content we’re about to get.

But new Disney+ details revealed about the service’s video quality and bonus features make a Disney+ subscription even more enticing, even as they seem like outright assaults on the currently reigning streaming giant that is Netflix.

disney+ shows

Disney+ is positioning itself as a major competitor to Netflix, but one question we’ve had for months is how the new streaming service will make its episodes available for consumption. Will they copy the Netflix model, releasing entire seasons at once for maximum bingeability? Or will they choose a method more akin to something like Hulu, where only one episode of a series is released per week?

Now we have the answer. Here’s what we know so far. Read More »

best foreign movies and tv streaming august 22

(Welcome to Pop Culture Imports, a column that compiles the best foreign movies and TV streaming right now.)

The world seems to feel like it’s on fire right now (and some parts of it are), but why not turn to foreign films and television to remind you of how dire things really are? No, it’s not all doom and gloom in this week’s Pop Culture Imports, but some of the best foreign movies and TV streaming now are so successful because of how powerful and timely they are. The first of which is HBO’s Israeli limited series Our Boys, which is based on the true events which led to the outbreak of war in Gaza. On the somewhat lighter side — but no less relevant — is the recent French comedy Non-Fiction in which director Oliver Assayas tears down our current digital landscape. Rounding out this week’s column is a tender Indian romance film from Amazon Studios, a haunting Italian crime drama, and a wacky Netflix fantasy anime series.

Let’s fire up those subtitles and get streaming.
