Netflix, Hulu, Prime Video April 2016: The Best Of What's New To Streaming


We already know the drill by now, each month, new titles come to our favorite streaming platforms. However, it seems like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon are really kicking things up a notch this time around, because there's just so much quality content about to premiere that we don't know how we are going to make time for it all.

Okay, yeah, we do: through some serious binge-watching sessions and movie nights all month long.

Get ready for a new comedy that brings That '70s Show cast members Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson back together on Netflix, as well as the second season of another comedy that has two people trying to make it work after a one-night stand on Prime Video.

Of course, as some series start, others end. So, make sure to tune in to the finales of the Hulu original series 11.22.63, as well as those of our favorite primetime shows.

Here's a rundown of what's new to Netflix, Hulu and Prime Video in April.


Netflix is bringing out the big guns when it comes to its original series this month. Cue a sound bite of Titus singing in praise, because the platform is releasing season 2 of the quirky comedy Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt on April 15. You also won't want to miss the new original comedy The Ranch, which will premiere on April 1 (got to love the mustache Snapchats).

Lots of movies worth streaming are available starting on the first, like My Girl, The Shawshank Redemption and Transporter 3, with Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine added on April 14 and Minions on the 24.

Don't forget that some titles are leaving the platform this month, including Half Baked and Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle, so watch them while you can.

If you are a Hulu subscriber, you already know how many TV series this platform offers. We've caught up using Hulu all season, and we can finally stream the season finales of NBC's Shades of Blue on April 1, and Fox's Lucifer on April 26. Don't forget to also watch the series finale of the Hulu original 11.22.63 on the fourth.

If it's movies that you want, it's movies that you'll get. Titles available starting April 1 include Bad Boys II, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, My Best Friend's Wedding and Paddington.

Prime Video And Amazon Video

There's a lot to get excited about over at Amazon in April, whether or not you are a Prime member. Prime Video is releasing season 2 of its original series Catastrophe, so we can finally see how this couple manages to stay together after the baby on April 8. The streaming service is also debuting its animated series Thunderbirds are GO! on April 15, as well as the second season of Veep later in the month.

As far as movies go, we will get to check out Into the Blue, Men in Black II and Risky Business on the first. Users can also finally see movies like Joy on the eighth and Ride Along 2 on the 12th when they become available for purchase on Amazon Video.
