Check out the new TV shows and movies you can watch this week on Australian streaming services.

If you've been feeling a little overwhelmed by the relentless onslaught of new TV shows and movies hitting Aussie streaming services over the last few weeks, you'll be glad to hear that this week's schedule should afford you a bit of room to catch your breath.

Both hayu and Foxtel have decided to kick February off quietly, releasing no notable new releases this week. Netflix, on the other hand, isn't taking its foot off the gas, debuting the first season of its science-fiction adaptation Altered Carbon. Based on the novels by author Richard K. Morgan, Altered Carbon imagines a world where humans can upload their consciousness to new bodies, subverting mortality and effectively living forever. Of course, that kind of technology doesn't come without a price, creating a dangerous divide between those who can afford immortality and those who can't.

Netflix isn't stopping there, either, with the first season of the acclaimed anime One Punch Man arriving alongside season one of the Western drama Damnation.

Stan is holding its own in the content department, too, with the third season of the Starz adventure series Black Sails swashbuckling its way to the service as of yesterday. The biographical drama The Zookeeper's Wife also joins Stan's catalogue this week, revealing how two zookeepers managed to save both animals and people from the German invasion of Poland during WWII.

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 February.
