Another month passes and the big streaming platforms continue to try and outdo each other as they strive to add to the number of eyeballs fixed on their offerings. For those following regular series, there are lots of ongoing shows but also some interesting movies and documentaries. Here’s what the four main streaming platforms have on offer for the month.
The headline item for Stan this month is Disney’s Christopher Robin which is also getting a run on Foxtel. Starring Ewan McGregor, this was a popular flick and adds to Stan’s library of Disney content – at least until Disney + launches here and starts to siphon all their movies back to the House of Mouse.
There’s also George Clooney’s Catch 22 and a movie I quite liked, The Circle which is starting to seem a little prescient. It’s about an evil social media empire.
