Best Movies and TV Shows Streaming on Netflix, Disney Plus, Hulu, HBO Max, and Amazon Prime in August 2020

on August 03, 2020, 5:53pm

Life moves pretty fast, to borrow from Ferris Bueller, that’s why there’s no room for skimming. Consequence of Sound doesn’t want any of that for you (or for themselves), which is why they’ve rounded up the greatest hits of all the major streaming networks.

Granted, we’ve already shown you everything coming to Amazon Prime, Disney+, HBO Max, Hulu, Netflix, and Shudder in August 2020. But, for brevity’s sake, we’ve assembled an easy-to-read guide that you can consult throughout the month.

When it comes to strictly flicks, HBO Max can’t be beat. You get all the Batmans, all the House Partys, all the Leprechauns, and that’s all without mentioning the big premieres like Birds of Prey, Richard Jewell, and An American Pickle.

On the television front, however, Netflix is getting the first two seasons of Cobra Kai (ahead of its third), while Shudder is bringing back Joe Bob Briggs for one last summer night at the drive-in. So, stack up on the BBQ.

That’s just a small chunk. Take a gander below. Remember, if you don’t have Hulu, you can sign up now for a free 30-day trial, and if you still haven’t added Disney Plus to your repertoire, give the Mouse House a spin.
