Here is your Netflix binge-list for the week, fresh from the Australian servers! This week's highlights include new episodes of zombie series Z Nation, the supernatural thriller Mortel, a holiday-themed series of Nailed It!, High Seas Season 2 and three new documentaries.
Read on for everything coming to the service for the week of November 18 to November 24.
With Disney Plus launching in Australia tomorrow, we were expecting Netflix to add a killer lineup of must-watch content. Instead, what we're getting is pretty middle-of-the-road, with little in the way of standout titles. Surprisingly, there are no new third-party movies joining Netflix this week or for the rest of the month. Hmmm.
This week, Disney gave Australians a taste of the content that will be coming to its streaming service, Disney+. It will be available on November 19 and it's bound to shake up Australia's streaming scene in a big way. Here's everything you need to know, including how much it will cost Aussie subscribers.
Here are the official synopses and trailers for each film and TV show.

With an ever-increasing number of streaming services available in Australia, it's becoming harder (at least, more time-consuming) to figure out where a movie or television series is streaming from. Add to that, content is a revolving door with licences expiring and new ones beginning. Luckily for us, there's a site that tells you where to find your favourite new-release movie or show.
