No matter what kind of entertainment tickles your fancy, this week's line-up of streaming new releases is sure to deliver.

If there's a unifying theme to this week's serving of new-release movies and TV shows, it's variety. All the big Aussie streaming services are rounding out March with a broad selection of titles covering all manner of interests, from blockbuster action to heart-wrenching drama to historical recreation.

Netflix kicks this cornucopia of entertainment off with the debut of the third season of How to Get Away with Murder today, Monday 26 March. If after three seasons you still haven't become the criminal mastermind you expected to, don't fret: I've watched every season of MasterChef and I still couldn't tell you the difference between a sauté and a soufflé.

For a lighter take on the dark side of life, the second season of A Series of Unfortunate Events is also hitting Netflix this week. Or, if you'd rather something altogether less grim, season 12 of Trailer Park Boys joins the reboot of Reboot to debut on the streaming service this Friday.

Stan has just as much variety to offer viewers this week. The hard-hitting drama Billions enters its third season with plenty of white-collar crime, while The Wiggles break out in song and dance with the arrival of the first season of Ready, Steady, Wiggle!

Foxtel wraps up this week's feast of entertainment with some of the biggest titles of the bunch. You've got the fifth season of the popular tech-industry comedy Silicon Valley, the second half of the seventh season of the legal drama series Suits and the premiere of Barry, HBO's latest dark comedy series centred on a hitman-turned-theatre-actor played by Bill Hader, he of Superbad, Tropic Thunder and Saturday Night Live! fame.

Take a look at the highlights of this week's new streaming releases below. For a complete schedule of upcoming programming, check out our list of everything coming to Aussie streaming services in March.
