The month of November allows you to relax, spend time with family and feast.
Some choose to binge on junk food and others like to stuff themselves with carbs, but some even feast in another way—by streaming movies and TV shows off the internet. Luckily, with so many streaming services available to consumers these days, it has become a rare occurrence to have nothing to watch at all.
Here's what is new this month on Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime Instant Video:
November will be a solid month for Netflix and chillers, providing new original content along with other high-quality offerings.
Nov. 4 will say hello to “The Crown,” a historical series about the life of Queen Elizabeth II, starring Matt Smith of “Dr. Who” fame. Netflix does not have a long history of original content like this, so the series should attract many fans of the genre.
On Nov. 11, Netflix original film “True Memoirs of an International Assassin” will premiere and probably be a film nobody should ever watch because it will most likely be absolutely awful. The film stars Kevin James as an action writer who somehow gets mistaken as an actual assassin. This plot, combined with how terrible of an actor Kevin James is, will without a doubt establish this film as a perfect example of why Netflix is losing its respected reputation.
Acclaimed drama “Boyhood” will hit the site Nov. 25. The film is a masterpiece of cinema that director Richard Linklater shot over a 12-year span with the same cast.
The film takes a look at the life of a young boy named Mason as the audience literally watches Mason grow up right before its very eyes.
Nov. 25 will also make way for “Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life,” for any fans wanting more of the beloved series.
This miniseries will serve as a continuation of “Gilmore Girls” and the two main stars will resume their original roles.
Hulu has begun to gain momentum on Netflix, and the site thusly provides its own share of new content in November.
On Nov. 1, a variety of content will become available, including both “Charlie’s Angels” films, Academy Award-winning film “Dances With Wolves" and a variety of James
Other great films that will soon become part of the Hulu library include the classic Coen brothers film, “Fargo,” and the always-great “Good Will Hunting,” which originally put screenwriters and stars Matt Damon and Ben Affleck on the map.
Hulu may not have the ability as of yet to offer what Netflix does in terms of original content, but as far as other offerings go, it has proven itself to be a fierce competitor.
Amazon Prime Instant Video
When you think of Amazon, you no longer think of it as only a place to go for last minute gift ideas.
Instead, you may think of the vast selection of television shows and movies available on Amazon Prime.
Nov. 1 will see AMC crime drama “The Night Manager,” starring Hugh Laurie and Tom Hiddleston, make its way to the site.
Michael Douglas and Glenn Close's thriller “Fatal Attraction" will also come to the site Nov. 1— just in case viewers want to watch something that feels scary-but-real this Halloween season.
A wide selection of “Rocky” films will also stream on the site this month, and so will the George Clooney comedy-drama “Up In The Air.”
