6 new streaming movies and TV shows you can watch in Australia this weekend

With so many shows and movies to choose from on Australia's major streaming services, it can often be difficult to find the best new stuff to entertain yourself with each end of week. 

In an effort to make things easier, we've hand-picked the best new shows and movies to watch on Aussie streaming platforms this weekend, covering the likes of Netflix, Disney Plus, Binge, Foxtel Now, Stan, Apple TV Plus and Amazon Prime Video. 

Below, you'll find a list of new highlights, with binge-worthy TV shows sitting alongside some great big-budget movie arrivals – and a couple of oddball left-of-field entries, just for some variety.

The weekend brings some hitters to Australia's streaming scene, including the premiere of Moon Knight on Disney Plus, more Halo on Paramount Plus, the Judd Apatow comedy The Bubble on Netflix, and The Girl From Plainville on Stan. Here are our streaming picks for the weekend of April 1-3, 2022.

Moon Knight

(TV series – episode 1 available now)

Disney's first live-action Marvel series featuring a new character has finally arrived with Moon Knight, the story of a man (Oscar Isaac) with a sleeping disorder who routinely blacks out, only to find himself in crazy situations. Turns out, the man has dissociative identity disorder, and one of his other personalities is the violent vigilante Moon Knight.

Halo

(TV series – episode 2 available now)

The long journey to a (proper) live-action Halo adaptation has finally paid off with this big-budget series from producer Steven Spielberg. In the last episode, Master Chief (Pablo Schreiber) and the girl he rescued (Yerin Ha) find themselves on the run from the United Nations Space Command (UNSC) after he refused an order to terminate her.

Stream Halo on Paramount Plus (or via Amazon Prime Video channels)

The Bubble

(Movie – available 1/4/2022)

Writer-director Judd Apatow (The 40 Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up) takes a meta-approach for his latest comedy, about a big budget film production which goes into lockdown while shooting on location. Expect moderate laughs and long running time. Stars David Duchovny, Karen Gillan, Iris Apatow, Keegan-Michael Key and Fred Armisen.

The Girl From Plainville

(Limited series – available now)

Hollywood is back with another miniseries that re-enacts a recent true crime story with The Girl From Plainville, starring Elle Fanning in a transformative role. Based on the case of Michelle Carter (Fanning), who convinced a young man to commit suicide over text. Sounds like heavy viewing.

Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty

(TV series – episode 4 available now)

Writer/director Adam McKay (Don't Look Up, Anchorman) returns with a fantastic new series which details how basketball became one of the most glamorous and successful sports of all time. Set in the late '70s, Winning Time follows Jerry Buss (John C. Reilly), a man who saw the potential of basketball as not just a sport, but as entertainment. His first call of business: putting every dollar he has into buying the Los Angeles Lakers. His second? Drafting a star like Earvin 'Magic' Johnson (Quincy Isaiah) to make the NBA explode in popularity. Episode 4 sees the team struggle under tough (but unproven) new coach Jack McKinney (Tracy Letts).

Slow Horses

(TV series – available 1/4/2022)

Apple's latest series boasts an incredible cast in Gary Oldman, Olivia Cooke, Jonathan Pryce and Kristin Scott Thomas, making it an immediate must-see show before we've even explained the premise. Thankfully, the plot, which follows a team of MI5 screw-ups who attempt to redeem themselves by stopping the execution of a journalist, sounds pretty great, too.

U.S. Government Sues Adobe for Hidden Termination Fees When Canceling Subscription

The United States Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission today levied a lawsuit against Adobe [ PDF ] for imposing a hidden termination fee on subscribers who want to cancel their Adobe plans. Adobe is accused of forcing subscribers to "navigate a complex and challenging cancellation process designed to deter them from cancelling subscriptions they no longer wanted." Adobe offers its Creative Cloud products on a subscription basis, with fees that are paid monthly. A monthly payment suggests that it's possible to cancel anytime, but that's not how Adobe works because most customers are actually locked into a hidden annual agreement. Customers who sign up for a free trial and are then charged and signed up to the default Creative Cloud plan, which is actually an annual contract. Canceling the annual contract requires customers to pay a lump sum of 50 percent of the "remaining contractual obligation" to cancel, despite the fact that servic

iOS 18 Introduces More Charging Limit Options on iPhone 15 Models: 85%, 90%, and 95%

All four iPhone 15 models feature a setting that prevents the devices from charging beyond 80% while toggled on, which can potentially improve an iPhone battery's lifespan by reducing the time that the battery is fully charged. And with iOS 18, Apple has taken this feature a step further by adding new 85%, 90%, and 95% charging limit options. Screenshot: Aaron Perris The feature can be found in the Settings app under Battery → Charging. The charging limit feature remains exclusive to the iPhone 15 lineup on the first iOS 18 beta, with the option not found on the iPhone 14 Pro or older. The first iOS 18 beta is now available for Apple Developer Program members, and a public beta will follow in July. Following beta testing, the update should be widely released to all users with an iPhone XS or newer in September.
