There's a new service added to our weekly round-up of what to watch on demand at the weekend, thanks to Amazon Instant Video finally launching on Roku devices. That means those with an Amazon Prime membership can catch up with the shows and films available as part of their yearly subscription on Roku set-top-boxes and the Streaming Stick.

Other device owners will also be able to find something to watch from our choice of highlights on streaming platforms, as many if not all of the services below are also available elsewhere - even mobile.

Some of them do need a subscription or one-off payment to view, but we've also included one that is currently on BBC iPlayer too in case you don't fancy shelling out.

Regardless, all of the below are well worth a watch...

The foul-mouthed, living teddy bear is back in a sequel that, while not quite as funny as the first film, is still a great slice of rough and ready fun.

Written and directed by Family Guy's Seth MacFarlane, who also voices Ted, the sequel deals with the bear's quest to legally be called a person rather than a property. Hilarity and rudeness ensues, of course.

Another film that explores the humanity of an object, Ex_Machina is the directorial debut of author and screenwriter Alex Garland (The Beach, Dredd).

Domhnall Gleeson plays programmer Caleb who is chosen to participate in an experiment whereby he must interact with the world's first truly artificially intelligent android. She also happens to be a stunning woman, played superbly by Swedish actress Alicia Vikander, so the relationship becomes awkward and interesting fast.


When five footballers from Manchester United's most successful era got together to buy non-league team Salford City they didn't quite realise how hard it would be to run their own club.

This two-part documentary is an excellent way to find out the trials and tribulations Paul Scholes, the Neville brothers, Ryan Giggs and Nicky Butt had to overcome in their first season in charge. And the end 10 minutes or so of the second episode are as nail-biting as any drama on TV today.


With Part 2 in cinemas now, it's an ideal opportunity to catch up with the big screen adaptation first half of the final book in the series.

Netflix has it for all subscribers and without giving away any spoilers for those who are yet to watch the first two films too, Jennifer Lawrence's portrayal as Katniss Everdeen gets better with each outing.
