There's really only one major show dominating news from the streaming services world at the moment; House of Cards season four is now available to watch on Netflix in its entirety. But while we obviously focus on that as one of our streaming highlights for this weekend, there's still plenty of other shows and films available on other services too.

Indeed, we scour the different apps and channels available on devices such as the Roku family of set-top-boxes to bring you our picks each week. And you certainly won't be left with "nothing on the box" if you subscribe to any of the major providers.

We've also chucked in a show available for free, as long as you own a compatible device. And there's a delightful Oscar-nominated movie to rent or purchase without a subscription for good measure.

Vinyl basically does for the music business what Mad Men did for advertising and Boardwalk Empire did for prohibition racketeering.

Executive produced by Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese, with the latter also directing the two-hour opening pilot episode, it spatters its fictional 70s-based, drug-fuelled tale with representations of real-life rock stars.

Wildgaze FilmsBrooklyn

Although it missed out on the three Oscars it was nominated for, Brooklyn did grab a BAFTA for the best British film and rightly so.

It is moving and beautifully paced, with an excellent script by author Nick Hornby, who adapted the novel by Colm Tóibín. Lead actress Saoirse Ronan is also superb as Irish immigrant Eilis, as we follow her attempts to integrate into the New York lifestyle of the 1950s.

NetflixHouse of Cards

Season four of House of Cards is the most recent addition to the Netflix line-up and, excitingly, all 13 episodes are now available to view on Netflix.

Kevin Spacey once again steps into the leather brogues of President Frank Underwood although this time his wife Claire (played by the ever brilliant Robin Wright) can potentially throw so many spanners in the works, the metaphorical house of cards could collapse in spectacular fashion.

Red Wagon EntertainmentInsurgent

The second movie in the Divergent trilogy hits Amazon Video for Prime members to stream as part of their subscription. The adaptations of Veronica Roth's science fiction novels for young adults have not quite hit the heights of the Hunger Games flicks in box office success, but Insurgent and the original Divergent (also on Amazon for Prime members) are worth catching up on.

Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley) continues her fight against the powers that be, with plenty of sci-fi action thrown in for good measure.

Universal TelevisionHeroes Reborn

Still awaiting a name change to My5 on Roku and similar devices, you should visit the older-styled Demand 5 nonetheless as it has the first three episodes of the long-awaited Heroes reboot series.

Few characters have made the transition since Heroes last aired but that's not necessarily a bad thing. This time we see a new breed of superpowered beings hunted by nefarious agents after a terrorist atrocity blamed on one of their kind.
