What’s Coming to Stan and Netflix Australia January 2017

I’m not leaving the house.

By Sarah Taviani | 12th January 2017

Raise your hand if you love streaming shows! Oh, wait. You can’t because you’re busy clicking “Continue watching” on Netflix. I feel you, boo. So just because I like you, I’m gonna tell you exactly what’s coming to your favourite streaming services this month. Here’s the breakdown of Stan and Netflix Australia in January 2017.

New to Netflix

(**** = Netflix Original or brand-new content)

There’s an incredible amount of new content coming to Netflix Australia this month, but the series that most people seem to be hanging out for is Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events.

The 2004 movie was basically a 108-minute smash cut of the first three books and it was more than a little disappointing, even with the comedic stylings of Jim Carrey. Here’s hoping the TV series will delve into the darker aspects of the series with a new cast headed up by Neil Patrick Harris.

New to Stan

(**** = brand-new content)

While Netflix Australia (and Netflix in general) is killing it with some original content, Stan is mostly about the old and modern classic films this month. And SHERLOCK.

Last year, Stan announced an exclusive licensing agreement for the fourth season of Sherlock (same days as the UK!), as well as any future seasons. You can also catch up on the previous seasons of Sherlock, since it’s been forever (or three whole years) since the last full season aired.
