Alex Kidman 25 July 2017 NEWS


Netflix defends, Stan laughs and Amazon Prime Video has a helping of The Tick in August's round-up of fresh streaming video content.

What's new on Netflix in August 2017?

The headline act on Netflix in August is the first season of The Defenders, the series that brings together all of Netflix's Marvel Cinematic Universe characters such as Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Daredevil and Iron Fist. All episodes of the superhero team series will debut on Netflix Australia on 18 August 2017.

There's also a new series of Wet Hot American Summer set ten years later:

And because Netflix knows that parents are only just getting over the horrors of having to watch Frozen 15 times a day with their kids, it's leaving Moana until the end of the month. Get used to hearing this many, many times, folks:

Netflix even goes so far as to make its own content trailers these days, which you can enjoy below:

What's new on Stan in August 2017?

Stan's big new series for August is The Other Guy, a comedy drama starring Matt Okine:

Stan also has Swedish Dicks, which sounds like something that might involve a visit to your GP, but is instead a comedy about an ageing stuntman and a Swedish DJ, with intermittent guest appearances by Keanu Reeves. No, really.

What's new on Amazon Prime Video in August 2017?

Amazon Prime Video continues its trend of just a few new series in the Australian market. This month, it kicks off with Comrade Detective, a Channing Tatum starring series that builds on a Romanian cop drama from the 80s. Yes, you did just read that sentence correctly.

Later in the month it's The Tick's turn, which will launch on Amazon Prime Video on 25 August 2017, although this is only the first half of the season. We'll have to wait until early 2018 to see the first season through to its conclusion.

    Hi Daley,

    Thanks for your inquiry.

    Currently, there is no information regarding the release date of Ray Donovan season 4 in Australia. As you know, Ray Donovan is an original series of Showtime Company. Information about release dates will most likely come from them.

    Hope this information helped.
