Top picks on Netflix

Our stream team have picked a range of series and films to watch right now on Netflix, available on Humax Freesat boxes from £5.99 a month. And best of all, you can try the first month for free. 

The OA

This mysterious new drama has already won legions of fans, so we suggest getting involved now before hearing any spoilers (we hate when that happens). The story stars Brit Marling as a young woman who resurfaces after years missing with strange new abilities.



Already a BAFTA winner, Ava DuVernay’s outstanding documentary on the historical criminalisation of African-Americans could also be an Oscar winner by the end of the week. DuVernay – who directed 2014’s Selma – employs scholars and activists to tell a stunning story in an intelligent way that’ll stay with you long after viewing.

Black Mirror

Charlie Brooker’s unsettlingly brilliant series hasn’t lost any of its power since its departure from channel 4. Take a dark journey into the unknown with last year’s new collection of episodes.


Cheated on, dumped and now out-of-love Gus moves and starts a new chapter in his life in a new apartment. Things heat up when he meets rebellious Mickey as they both navigate the thrills and agonies of modern relationships in this bold new US comedy from the writer of Knocked Up and This is 40. 

Catch up on series 1 now before brand-new series 2 is available from 10th March.
