It’s that time of the month again — you know, the time when all of the streaming services release their list of new additions to their catalogs (along with all of the things they’re snatching away from your to-watch list). With the holidays right around the corner, the amount of time you have to keep up with what’s streaming where is likely on the decline. Never fear, we have compiled a list of the can’t miss shows and movies that are streaming this November across all major services.
From likely Oscar nominees to the new TV shows all your co-workers will be talking about, these 12 shows and movies should be at the top of your must-watch list next month.
Stephen King’s IT — Crackle (Nov. 1)
