Weekend viewing tips: You, Battle of the Scheldt, Velvet Underground and more


We hardly watch traditional TV anymore. Streaming video services like Apple TV+ (try for free), Netflix, Disney+ and Amazon Prime Video are more important than ever. But local providers such as Videoland, Film1 and Ziggo also have plenty to offer. More series are added every week and it is nice if you know which series, films and documentaries really stand out. We have therefore made a selection.

New on Apple TV+: The Velvet Underground

Documentary about the famous rock band from New York, directed by Todd Haynes. We see interviews and never-before-seen behind-the-scenes footage.
