Netflix Is About To Get More TV Content, Documentaries & Movies (Here’s What’s Coming Over The Next Week)By: Chris Crum - August 23, 2013
Netflix is a revolving door of movie and television content, particularly on the streaming side of things. Though titles often disappear from availability, new ones are also frequently added. Sometimes these come in the form of Netflix original shows or even exclusive access to certain programming, but sometimes it’s just older titles that many find to be still worth watching.
Content is added to Netflix streaming each week, and it can be difficult to keep up with what’s available all the time. With that, here’s a look at some new additions.
Note: This is for the U.S.
Over the past week, Netflix has added more television shows, stand-up comedy performances, documentaries and movies. See what those were here. Here’s what’s coming in the week ahead.
