New Netflix Streaming Movies and Television Shows of 2015
Ever since Netflix stopped letting people know what’s been subtracted from their Instant streaming lineup, it’s been a little difficult to keep track of what’s coming and going in their library.
So the purpose of this post – which will be continually updated on this site as new movies and television shows are added to the Netflix Instant streaming lineup – is to keep you, the dedicated Netflix Instant streamer, apprised of what new additions should be watched immediately, or should go on your queue but not be considered a top viewing priority.
Improve Netflix Streaming Experience With Powerful Router
Streaming HD video is a bandwidth intensive activity that puts major stress on a wireless home network. Our wireless routers are popular with heavy Netflix streaming users because they are designed to handle high-volume jobs with ease. With a FlashRouter, you can extend your wireless range, tweak wireless sensitivity, control your bandwidth allocation, and add layers of advanced security. How do we achieve all this? By flashing our routers with DD-WRT & Tomato firmware, open-source replacement firmwares that boost a router’s functionality and feature-set.
Check out our recent best-sellers of February 2015 list to find some of our most popular devices. Routers from all price ranges, all ready to revolutionize your network, such as the sleek and thoroughly affordable Linksys E1200 DD-WRT FlashRouter or the Linksys E2500 Tomato FlashRouter. Or if you’re looking to spend a little extra to get the best router money can buy, check out the Netgear R7000 DD-WRT FlashRouter, or the Netgear R8000 Wireless-AC3200 DD-WRT FlashRouter with it’s triband (!) wireless speeds.
It’s also worth mentioning that we’re affiliated with a number of VPN service providers who can not only make your online experience safer, but can also keep you in touch with your Netflix streaming account even when you’re in countries where Netflix isn’t available.
By tunneling your online information through secure servers all over the world, VPNs also allow you to trick your computer into thinking it’s wherever you want it to be, allowing you access to geographically restricted material. For more information, check out one of our many articles about accessing Netflix from places like Korea or Dubai or South Africa.
If you’d like some help choosing the VPN that best suits you, we recommend checking our Supported Provider List. We can customize our routers for any of the VPNs on that list, which saves you a lot of the time and trouble that comes with installing the VPN software on your own. Don’t end up with a bricked router when we can handle all of the tough stuff for you.
Best New Netflix Instant Streaming Videos (July 2015 Update)
New to Netflix (July 2015)
It takes a little while into July 2015 for the really good stuff to reach Netflix, but there’s a big treat waiting at the end of the month.
Creep (July 7) – It’s nice to see that, even as Mark Duplass’ career takes him into more mainstream territory, he’s still keeping in touch with his low-budget roots. Case in point: 2014’s Creep, which finds Duplass assaying the title role, bugging the hell out of Duplass’ co-writer and director Patrick Bryce. It’s the sort of inventive, economical horror movie that deserves to be rewarded, particularly with your viewership.
Tig (July 17) – The first of several original Netflix Instant projects worthy of being highlighted this month, Tig follows absurdist comedian Tig Notaro in the aftermath of a legendarily revealing set in which she dealt openly with her diagnosed breast cancer, a devastating break-up, and the death of her mother, all of which had occurred in a four month period. Given the subject, there’s little doubt that Tig will be be equal parts hilarious and heartbreaking.
BoJack Horseman: Season Two (July 17) – Maybe the first season of this animated Netflix original, which cast Will Arnett as a faded television star/horse, didn’t quite live up to the pedigree (forgive me) of its cast – which included Amy Sedaris, Paul F. Tompkins, Alison Brie, Aaron Paul, and Patton Oswalt – but there was enough funny stuff around the edges to make checking in on the second season a no-brainer. Besides, who can resist more of Mr. Peanutbutter (Tompkins)?
The Guest (July 25) – After seeing Dan Stevens in The Guest, you will stop thinking of him as cousin Matthew on Downton Abbey. This endlessly entertaining thriller was one of the best of 2014, and it has the added benefit of featuring a pre-It Follows Maika Monroe, who seems to be building a career on appearing in John Carpenter-esque sleeper hits.
Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp (July 31) – Frankly, the only bad thing about the return of the Wet Hot American Summer crew for a television series that predates the movie is properly managing our expectations. Anything short of the funniest television series of the year will likely be a disappointment. Either way, bully for Netflix Instant for landing this.
Other Great Streaming Movies & TV Shows
Since other streaming sites are stepping up their games to compete with Netflix Instant, we thought we’d highlight some of their best options. Everything you’ll see in this section is available from Amazon Prime Instant.
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid – If it annoys you to watch the two best-looking leading men of the 1960s (Robert Redford, Paul Newman) being effortlessly witty, cool, and edgy, than Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is not the movie for you. The rest of you should have no trouble enjoying this suspenseful and funny classic western.
Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (July 3) – Maybe the single greatest political satire of all, with comedic styles ranging from the silly to the scatological to the profane to the sophisticated, Dr. Strangelove is here on Amazon Prime Instant, ready to be streamed in all its glory. Always worthy of a re-watch for the already initiated, and definitely worth pinning the uninitiated to a chair and forcing them to watch.
Boardwalk Empire: Season 3 (July 16) – Boardwalk Empire was a notoriously slow starter, at least when compared with HBO’s other prestige dramas. But things really started cooking in Season 3, which found bootlegging gangster Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) squaring off against his most formidable opponent yet; insecure and wholly psychopathic mob boss Gyp Rosetti (Bobby Cannavale, in an unforgettable Emmy-winning turn).
Behind the Candelabra (July 30) – Steven Soderbergh’s supposed retirement from filmmaking has proven to be a more productive time for him than most other filmmaker’s active careers. Aside from directing and producing Cinemax’s The Knick, Soderbergh also made this fantastically entertaining and bittersweet HBO movie about the relationship between the closeted Liberace (Michael Douglas) and his live-in partner (Matt Damon). Worth watching for Rob Lowe’s turn as plastic surgeon Dr. Jack Startz alone.
The Skeleton Twins (July 31) – We’d watch anything with Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig, even a movie with a plot that sounds like it veers dangerously close to being indie-by-numbers. The Skeleton Twins casts Hader and Wiig as an estranged brother and sister who reunite after one of them attempts suicide before the other could get the chance. There’s even a power-ballad, lip-synching scene. Despite all of that, Hader and Wiig (well-assisted by a warm, humane Luke Wilson) manage to sell the hell out of the material.
