Streaming Movies and Television Shows Added in September 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 June 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 like 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 Netflix Instant Streaming Added in September 2015
New to Netflix (September 2015)
Now we’re back in the swing of things with plenty of great new streaming titles for Netflix Instant users.
Up In the Air – We’ll start this month’s list with a choice offering from writer/director Jason Reitman (though he’ll show up again on this list with a less auspicious outing). George Clooney stars as Ryan Bingham, an expert in corporate mass firings who travels from business to business doing what he does best. With the help of young protege (Anna Kendrick) and a new love interest (Vera Farmiga), Bingham grows to discover that maybe his life of perpetual travel and callous indifference to those he fires is somewhat empty.
Sleepy Hollow – At the time of its release, Sleepy Hollow was treated as an entertaining enough trifle of a horror film from Tim Burton and Johnny Depp, whose collaborations (Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood) only seemed to be growing more rich and rewarding. Of course, the pair have collaborated on a series of stinkers since Sleepy Hollow (save for Sweeney Todd), and now this movie – about Depp’s Ichabod Crane and his attempts to thwart the murderous Headless Horseman (Christopher Walken) – lands firmly in the positive column for Depp/Burton.
About Elly (September 11) – From the peerless dramatist, Asghar Farhadi (maker of the essential A Separation and The Past), comes About Elly, the story of a kindergarten teacher who goes missing while on a picnic. This movie actually came out before A Separation and The Past, back in 2009, but growing interest in Farhadi’s work allowed About Elly to be re-released, and we’re all about to benefit as a result.
Comedy Bang Bang: Season 4, Part 2 (September 13) – Surely no one was happy to hear that Reggie Watts was leaving the ridiculous world of Comedy Bang Bang, but who better to step in and fill his shoes than Kid Cudi? Otherwise, everything is nominal at Comedy Bang Bang: the guests are plentiful for the second half of season 4 (James Marsden, Brie Larson, Carly Rae Jepson), the absurd characters come at a steady clip, and, as ever, nothing makes too much sense.
Moonrise Kingdom (September 16) – Moonrise Kingdom was called the most Wes Anderson-iest of all Wes Anderson movies at the time of its release. Then The Grand Budapest Hotel came out and seemingly claimed that title for itself. Still, everything you love about Wes Anderson movies – the dollhouse-level fastidiousness, the amusingly emotionally-stilted characters, Bill Murray – is all here, in service of a story about two kids who sneak away from their respective summer camps to run away together.
The Walking Dead: Season 5 (September 27) – For those of us following along with The Walking Dead on Netflix Instant, September 27th can’t come soon enough. We were last left with the group(s) as they arrived at Terminus, which promised salvation but none-too-surprisingly turned out to be a trap for our heroes. What violent, degrading depths will The Walking Dead crew resort to in order to get out of this situation? We’ll know soon enough.
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.
The Blair Witch Project – The original found footage horror film finally arrives on Amazon Prime. Certainly the scares in The Blair Witch Project are more psychological than primal, which put off some audiences, but that’s what makes this movie so special. Three young filmmakers get lost in the woods, leaving behind only their footage, and it’s up to us as the audience to infer the nature of just what is terrorizing them as they try and fail to find their way out.
Hand of God (September 4) – We can’t say we’ve kept up with every last Amazon original program, though Transparent certainly suggests that their developers know what they’re doing. That said, we’re pretty hyped for Hand of God. The plot sounds cool enough – about a judge who has a breakdown and believes God wants him to start punishing people as a vigilante – but it’s the cast (Ron Perlman, Garret Dillahunt, Dana Delaney, Andre Royo a.k.a. Bubbs from The Wire) that has us the most excited.
Dear White People (September 4) – A social satire exploring the lives of four black people attending an ivy league institution, Dear White People reflects the experiences of writer/director Justin Simien who attended the mostly white Chapman University. Simien brings a sharp wit and keen insight to his first full-length feature.
Men, Women, & Children (September 12) – And now for the part of Jason Reitman’s career that is a little more worrying, we have Men, Women, & Children. The movies follows a group of high school kids and adults as they deal with the many ways that technology has affected our lives. If that sounds like a common and not particularly insightful point of view, then you’re in lockstep with critics and audiences alike, who either panned or ignored the movie.
