What’s new on Netflix August 2016

Netflix Australia’s offering is once again bolstered with a variety of its own "originals" programming, as well as new episodes of Scream Season 2 each week in August. The presence of the US summer break is rather evident as well, with no fewer than six originals series aimed at children.

Plus Pretty Woman. Who doesn't like Pretty Woman?
