The Coming Week’s Netflix Additions Include Sons Of Anarchy: Season 5 & An Exclusive Aziz Ansari SpecialBy: Chris Crum - October 25, 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.
This week Netflix has some treats in store, including the long-awaited addition of the last season of FX’s Sons of Anarchy, the exclusive Aziz Ansari stand-up special Netflix has been hyping up for the past couple months, and Bridegroom, the critically acclaimed documentary, which Netflix announced its exclusive rights to a while back. Here are some titles you’ll soon see available for streaming.
