A string of new Sesame Street episodes, animated kids' movies from the early 2000s, and seasons of America’s Funniest Home Videos populate the “recently added” section of Netflix this week. While most of these aren’t too interesting, that’s all balanced out by the announcement that Netflix will stream all ten episodes of Friends beginning in January 2015. It only took ten years, but now they will definitely be there for you.
Girl Most Likely surfaced in Amazon Prime’s new additions. Amazon describes the story as a comedy about a failed playwright who has to move back in with her mother, but Alissa Wilkinson explored what this story might have to say to people who have embraced an “intellectually-engaged faith” in this review. And speaking of intellectually engaged Christians: HuluPlus just released a documentary of The Life and Faith of C.S. Lewis.
HBO announced this week that they will offer stand-alone streaming services—apart from cable subscriptions—which puts the company on par with Netflix, Hulu, Prime, and the like. Indiewire has more information here and wonders if this could be “the first step in the unbundling of cable TV.” The day after HBO’s announcement, CBS announced its own streaming subscription service. They will offer live streaming of CBS broadcasts as well as over six thousand episodes of CBS shows. The A.V. Club has the details here.1
