Don't know what to watch on television this weekend? Never fear, we're here with our weekly round-up of shows and movies you can view right now on streaming services available through set-top-boxes like the Roku family of devices.

There's something for everyone in our line-up this week, with movies and one of the best comedy programmes from the last decade or so. Kids and grown-ups will have plenty to watch alike.

We like to spread the love around the services too. You will find something you can enjoy on Sky's paid on demand platform NOW TV, or through Netflix if you have a subscription. There's also a couple of flicks you can pay for as a one-off through several online options, or even catch-up on something for free.


Warner BrosSupergirl

DC Comics is rapidly catching up with Marvel in getting its comic book heroes onto TV and film, and the latest to make the transition is Supergirl. She joins The Flash, Green Arrow, John Constantine and the pre-Batman tales of Gotham City on telly and her adventures are looking good so far.

Two episodes of the new, slick series are available to watch on NOW TV, having first been broadcast on Sky 1, which include the impressive pilot. And if you have an Entertainment Pass you can catch up with additional episodes every Thursday live.

Illumination EntertainmentMinions

Breaking out from the Despicable Me series of films, the loveable Minions star in their own adventure. Now the box office hit is available to buy from several digital content stores. Sky Store will even send a copy of the DVD to you too, if you opt to buy it there.

The film follows the exploits of Minions Stuart, Kevin and Bob as they work for another supervillain prior to joining up with Gru. It has a star-studded cast providing the voices, including Sandra Bullock, Mad Men's Jon Hamm, and British comedy greats Jennifer Saunders and Steve Coogan. And it's the ideal family movie for a Sunday.

20th Century FoxHome Alone

Another superb family movie that we will never tire of is Home Alone. It's also one of our favourite Christmas films of all time and its addition to the Netflix line-up is another reminder of just how quickly the holiday season is zooming up on us.

It's the film that made Macaulay Culkin a bone fide star and demands at least one viewing a year. If you're a Netflix subscriber, you might even fancy more than one.

Universal MusicAmy

Directed and compiled by the team that brought us the amazing Aryton Senna documentary movie, Amy is another film to explore a talented star who sadly died too soon.

It's not quite as accomplished as Senna, but the tale of Amy Winehouse is also fascinating as we hear in her own words what drove her to success and then destruction.

Channel 4Peep Show

With the ninth and final series to start next week, on 11 November, you can try to cram in as many episodes from the previous eight as you can in order to recap on the last 12 years of one of the best British sitcoms around.

Channel 4's on demand service All 4 has the entire eight previous series available to watch for free. And with 48 different episodes, each around 24 minutes long, it would take just over 19 hours to watch them back to back. Those truly dedicated could even watch the entire run in one day. Go on, we dare you.
