The weekend is upon us again and although we've been extremely busy in Barcelona, seeing the latest phones and smart devices debut at Mobile World Congress, that hasn't stopped us trawling through the TV shows and movies available on catch-up and on demand services to bring you our highlights.

Each week we propose five programmes or films we think you'd like to watch, all of which available on a streaming service, either paid, subscription or completely free.

You can also watch them all on a streaming device, such as those available from Roku, including the Roku 3 and Streaming Stick.

So have a look at the following and if you like our choices, make such you make a mental note to watch one or more of them this weekend. After all, you don't need to hit record or mark the listing in the Radio Times. All of the shows or movies on offer can be viewed when you want.

The fourth season of Vikings is now two episodes in and if you haven't caught up with the show yet, what the heck are you doing?

It is, quite simply, the best show about Vikings ever made - being executive produced by a historian who knows a thing or two about the subject matter. And it's proved so popular, its lead, Travis Fimmel, is also the star of the forthcoming World of Warcraft movie.

Bond is back and now available to rent or buy across a number of the main screening services.

Finally, after many teasers over the last three films, James Bond is confronted with the evil organisation known as SPECTRE, with Christoph Waltz playing the lead bad guy. Ex-WWE star Batista (listed in the credits as Dave Bautista) is great as henchman Mr Hinx. And there's a return for gadgtery at last.


Aha! Alan Partridge is back and all six episodes of series 2 of Mid Morning Matters are available to view on Now TV.

Each episode is 30 minutes long and the format feels less forced this time around, with the previous series originally made for Fosters and first screened on the internet. The TV Alan is a better Alan, and we're sure you'll laugh as much as we did to every darn minute of it.

Quentin Tarantino's first western is arguably better than his most recent - The Hateful Eight. It's certainly got more heart as it follows the story of a free slave turned bounty hunter and his quest for vengeance.

Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz and Leo DiCaprio are superb in their roles, but it is the return of Miami Vice's Don Johnson to the big screen that delights most.

An all-star cast line-up for this real-life biopic detailing one of the most shocking cases of the 90s. Oscar-winner Cuba Gooding Junior slips on the leather glove of former TV, movie and American football star Simpson, while John Travolta and David Schwimmer play his lawyers - both turning into celebrities themselves in the process.

Indeed, Schwimmer plays Robert Kardashian, father of Kim and her sisters, so even if you don't give two hoots about the murder case, his story in itself is fascinating to watch.
