This week in streaming: Stranger Things happen when you’re The Loudest Voice in television

Posted: 1 July 2019 7:29 am News

Stranger Things Season 3

The 80s are back.

As always, the start of a month brings a fresh heaping of new TV shows and movies to devour. And even though July might feel a little slow at times thanks to the icy weather and tax-time tribulations, at least there's plenty of top-notch entertainment to keep you company while you rug up on the couch.

Highlights this week include the continuing adventures of the Stranger Things crew in the third season of the hugely popular Netflix original series. This time around, the plucky Hawkins kids have to face the challenges of adolescence in addition to enemies from the Upside Down, both of which threaten to tear the close friends apart.

Also worth checking out this week is The Loudest Voice, Russel Crowe's new drama series premiering on Stan. Crowe plays the role of Roger Ailes, the founder of media outlet Fox News. The series chronicles Ailes' rise to prominence in both the media and politics as well as his fall from grace in the wake of multiple sexual harassment accusations.

That's just a taste of what this week has in store for Aussie streaming services. For even more of our top picks, click or tap the icons for each streaming service below to see what it has to offer.
