Personally, I’ve been quite productive while being at home these past few weeks - and by productive, I mean productively going through my shows-to-watch and movies-to-watch list. Whether it be Netflix, YouTube, Disney+, Viki, or Crunchyroll, there’s a lot of streaming platforms available for all your binge-watching needs!

Since we can’t go to the cinemas to watch the newest blockbuster movies, the good news is that you can find them online at YouTube movies! For a big title that came out recently, let’s say Birds of Prey for example, you can rent it for 48 hours in HD for $6.99 CAD or you can buy the title for $24.99 CAD. Netflix and Disney+ are also slowly piling out movies that were shown in the cinemas, so get yourself a subscription and binge-watch entire series of sequels, trilogies, and even entire timelines.

If you’re looking for some foreign films such as dramas in Chinese or Korean, you can check out Viki. They have thousands of shows and movies with subtitles. Along with that, Crunchyroll can be used to binge-watch some of the Anime titles you’ve been seeing everyone rave about. Though Viki and Crunchyroll are known for their shows and series, they do have some movies and longer works if you look around!

Here’s a list of some of the most popular (current and past) movie series and shows recommended by myself and my friends! The titles range in genres from comedy, to documentaries, all the way to action superhero that you can binge-watch on each platform:
