ICYMI: New content on Netflix, Presto and Stan in August 2016

Brodie Fogg 7 September 2015 NEWS

We compare the TV shows and movies that were added to Australia’s top streaming services last month.

Last month, Netflix bought the wizarding world of Hogwarts to our screens with the first four instalments of Harry Potter, Stan began streaming the entire first season of iZombie, the new crime/comedy from Rob Thomas (Veronica Mars), and Presto received a truckload of new content thanks to a deal with NBCUniversal. There were 119 releases across all three services last month, so it’s likely that a few flew under your radar.

Check out the list below for every movie and television series that launched on Netflix, Presto and Stan in August 2016.

*Note: in case you missed it, ICYMI stands for In Case You Missed It
