We continue our weekly guide to the new and recommended TV shows and movies that you can settle down to watch streamed over the internet this weekend.

We all lead busier lives these days, so what better than to sit back and watch a programme or film streamed through a device like a Roku set-top-box or Streaming Stick. And all of our recommended content is available for you whenever you want it.

We've scanned several of the major streaming services and some of the lesser known to come up with a few highlights. Some you'll have to pay for, or have a subscription, others are free. All are well worth a watch.

So here's our line-up of shows and flicks you can find on your streaming devices for the weekend of 19/20 September.


The controversial drama based on the early days of games developer Rockstar and its Grand Theft Auto franchise is available to watch on BBC iPlayer and we encourage you to check it out, if only to see what the fuss is all about.

Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) plays Rockstar co-founder Sam Houser, while Bill Paxton (Aliens) plays infamous US attorney Jack Thompson, who attempted to lay the blame of a Stateside murder case on the effects of GTA and other violent games. He also attempts to sue the Houser brothers for the inclusion of the Hot Coffee hidden sex scene and the 90 minute TV film focuses on that period in gaming history.

Premier League leaders Manchester City look to put their recent Champions League loss behind them when they take on West Ham United on Sky Sports 1 on Saturday from 5pm (5.30pm kick-off). The only problem is, while West Ham's own home form has been rocky so far this season, their away performances have been very impressive, having already beaten Arsenal and Liverpool in recent weeks.

Those wishing to watch the match live on NOW TV can do so with a day, week or one of the new monthly subscription passes.


All 10 episodes of Netflix original drama Narcos is now available to view on the platform, and it is thoroughly recommended you catch up with the series that is becoming the new "have you seen?" topic around the water cooler.

It is based on the real-life escapades of drug kingpin Pablo Escobar and the Medellin Cartel, and the US Drug Enforcement Agencies efforts to take him down. A second series has since been commissioned for release some time in 2016, so it's worth swotting up on the first to get prepared.

Universal Picturespitch-perfect-2-2-xlarge

Comedy sequel Pitch Perfect 2 is still not available on DVD or Blu-ray until Monday 21 September, so here's a perfect (see what we did there?) opportunity to watch it prior to its physical format release. It's available to buy the digital edition in standard or high definition from several streaming services.

It brings back actresses Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson as part of the Barden Bellas, who have to sing their their way to stardom once again at a world championships in Copenhagen. Hilarity ensues along the way, of course.

WWESting Night of Champions

From 1am on Monday morning (21 September) in the UK, the WWE's latest pay per view will be available to watch on the WWE Network live as part of a subscription and it is of particular interest this year. Not only will John Cena get a chance to win back his USA title from Seth Rollins, the latter superstar will also have to take on former WCW megastar Sting in only his second competitive appearance in a World Wrestling Entertainment ring.

There is also a warm up show from midnight Sunday beforehand, so it might be worth thinking up a convincing work sickie for the start of next week now.

Channel 438693

George Clark's Amazing Spaces returned for a new series this week and you can catch up on the new episode on All 4 now.

The show highlights all manner of weird and wonderful homes and holiday retreats where architects and normal members of the public have made the best use of as little amount of space as possible. It also shows you don't have to be mega-rich to get the living abode of your dreams.
