We are at the heart of the summer season right now with people streaming left-and-right, and having those streaming options keeping them busy and preoccupied while the summer goes on.

With that said, here are our following picks for this week:

TV:

  • The Newsroom: Ever get sick of the national media in this country or just enjoy a good TV show. This Aaron Sorkin-written show will show you what it is like being the lead anchor for a cable news network and just how the news comes together, as well as dealing with the every day young/rookie staff.  All three seasons of the series can be found to watch on Prime Video, HBO NOW and HBO Go.

 

  • Danny Phantom: It is considered as one of the best cartoons that Nickelodeon has ever aired and was written and created by Butch Hartman, the creator and writer of another popular Nickelodeon series, The Fairly Odd Parents. Danny Phantom can be found in its entirety on Hulu.

 

  • Spongebob’s Big Birthday Blowout: Alright, so, by now the episode should have premiered. It was an episode about Spongebob’s birthday and the party that followed it. With that said, it should be available on Nickelodeon’s on-demand by Saturday, July 13. Either that, or check your live TV streaming service (if you get the channel) to see if it is available on there.

 

Movies:

  • Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald: This is the sequel to Fantastic Beats and it will be made available on HBO NOW and HBO Go on Saturday, July 13.

 

  • 17 Again: This movie was one a big one for Zac Efron, as he was getting out of his Disney phase. The film also stars Matthew Perry, Sterling Knight, Leslie Mann and Thomas Lennon. It can be found to stream through Freeform on-demand or through their app (with cable/satellite/streaming service credentials). You can rent it on iTunes too for $3.99.

 

  • The Lion King: With the new live-action movie being released a week from today, it might be a good idea to watch the original version first and relive it. Sadly, there are no streaming services that have it available at the moment and that the only way to technically stream it would be to purchase it on iTunes for $14.99. At this time, the movie cannot be rented from iTunes.

 

Sports:

  • 2019 Wimbledon Championships: Coverage for the tournament will begin on ESPN at 9 a.m. ET on Saturday, July 13.

 

  • 2019 Tour de France: Coverage: for this bike racing event will begin at 6:30 a.m. ET on NBC Sports Network/NBCSN on Saturday, July 13.

 

  • F1 Auto Racing: You can watch the British Grand Prix on ESPN 2 starting at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday, July 14.
