Some cool entertainment to stream by the pool on a hot summer night
WASHINGTON – Okay it is hot but it is the weekend so it is time to binge and stream your favorite shows at the pool or in a nice cool room. Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, HBO GO, Showtime, Acorn and Starz all have great movies and series worth streaming near the pool.
Love The Rock? Who doesn’t? You can now better appreciate Dwayne Johnson with new episodes of Ballers, HBO GO. Also catch up on the first season of the show shot in South Beach, on your HBO GO app on your tablet or Roku streaming device.
The theme of this weekend is new premieres. Netflix is starting your weekend right with the premiere of its mysterious drama, Stranger Things. If you love old Spielberg and classic kid-led Stephen King stories, then you’re going to be a big fan of this ’80s throwback series. Prefer something comedic?
Hulu‘s favorite fierce and gossipy best friends are back with the premiere of Difficult People Season Two. Also, this weekend marks the premiere of HBO‘s new school-centered comedy, Vice Principals, which stars Danny McBride and Walton Goggins, as well as the addition of Season Three of The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret on Netflix.
