'Tis the Season to Binge Watch
For most people this time of year means you have some time to spend with your family, catch up on sleep and over eat.
For those who have cut the cord it also means you have time to catch up things you may have missed this season and binge watch.
So here are some recommendations of what to stream over the holiday break.
The Grand Tour (Amazon Prime)
Amazon Prime may have officially launched in Canada but the library is still small at this point. There is some access to Amazon's original content but if you get yourself a 30 day trial you can watch the first 6 or 7 episodes of the show that is currently the most illegally downloaded show.
WestWorld (HBO Now)
HBO's latest giant series wrapped up last month but if you missed it then why not subscribe to a month of HBO Now and catch up the first season. With your one month subscription you can also catch up on some other HBO favourites like Game of Thrones, The Newsroom, Silicon Valley, Veep and many others.
Years of Living Dangerously (National GeoGraphic - SlingTV)
National Geographics second season of groundbreaking documentary event series provides first-hand reports on those affected by, and seeking solutions to, climate change. Season 2 includes reports from David Letterman, Don Cheadle, Arnold Schwarzenegger & Jack Black among others.
Planet Earth II (BBC iPlayer)
The follow up to BBC's British nature documentary in 2006 presented and narrated by Sir David Attenborough has some of the most amazing cinematography from all over the globe.
The Crown (Netflix)
Sticking with the UK theme why not watch Netflix's latest series which is a biographical story about the early reign of Queen Elizabeth II.
Horace & Pete (Hulu)
Created, written, and directed by Louis C.K, Horace & Pete is a critically well received web series that stars Louis C.K., Steve Buscemi, Alan Alda and Jessica Lange.
The Criterion Collection (Filmstruck)
If you are a classic movie fan then why not give the new streaming service from Turner Classic Movies a try that includes the entire the criterion collection of films.
NHL Winter Classic / NHL Centennial Classic (NHL GameCentre)
If you are up for watching some outdoor NHL action then you can check out the Detroit Red Wings vs Toronto Maple Leafs on Jan 1st and the Chicago Blackhawks vs. the St. Louis Blues on Jan 2nd.
Bonus: Road To The NHL Winter Classic (Epix - SlingTV)
The NHL and EPIX have teamed up to show the lead up to both games with behind the scenes footage of all 4 teams involved. The best part is Epix is currently free with your SlingTV subscription for the next few months.
Happy Holidays from all of us at Kutko and enjoy all of your binge watching!
