Every month the masses expect the newest batch of entertainment to be released across streaming services. The choice in content providers seems to be growing every month, but Netflix and Hulu remain leading the pack. Both platforms have invested a lot of capital into their catalogs, and it is paying off for the customers. A little competition isn’t always a bad thing.
Regardless of what you may be looking for, there should be something for everyone in this month’s selection of series and movies. Netflix has plenty of original programmes that are hitting the platform, and this month is no different. Hulu, at the same time, has a host of older goodies available.
The Chef Show (Volume 3)

Altered Carbon (Season 2)
Altered Carbon became a major science fiction hit with its debut season. Fans are still trying to grasp some of the surreal concepts this series is trying to establish in its world. When even consciouses are digitized, figuring out a puzzling murder becomes all that much more mind-altering. How can you tell what is real?
Queen Sono (Season 1)
In its debut season, Queen Sono delves into the life of a deep-cover secret agent in South Africa. The protagonist is doing her best to handle all the criminal world can throw at her, as well as her personal life. Does she have what it takes to deal with it all, or will she crumble under pressure?
Important: Currently, Hulu is only available in the United States. Before Hulu launches in the UK, you can sign up for Hulu and stream its content using a virtual private network (VPN) service. A VPN is going to help by masking your IP address and making it look like you are in a different location. Then geo-restricted content becomes watchable as the streaming service thinks you are in the right area. For example, if you connect to the UK-based VPN server (for example this one), you can watch all content available for UK residents. If you connect to a server in the US, you can watch shows available in the States, including anything on Hulu.
High Fidelity (Season 1)

Based in Brooklyn, New York, it follows a record store owner who is still at the height of his love for pop culture. This ultimate music fan has a thing for “top five” lists and tends to wear his heart on his sleeve.
Utopia Falls (Season 1)
Set in the distant future, Utopia Falls focuses on a group of teenagers and the discovery that they come across. When they find a cache of historical records, music, and artifacts, they start to wonder about everything they have ever learned. Music can be a powerful tool when wielded by the right person.
Beverly Hills Ninja
It is a classic tale of the “great white ninja” and his destiny to become the greatest of all time.
