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