StreamSavvy Guide: What to Watch, December 9-11

Here’s what to watch the weekend of December 9 – 11.


Now for the Real Life Version: Captive

From Die Hard to Taken, there’s almost no-such-thing as a great action movie without a hostage situation. If you’re not sure what to watch, Netflix has the answer with Captive. Don’t they always!

Captive is the newest “docuseries” from Netflix, and the first season hit the internets today. A binge-worthy option for your weekend viewing, the series takes a behind-the-scenes look at the kidnapping and hostage world. Specifically, the around-the-clock efforts to bring every hostage home. Each of the eight episodes tells a new story and will fill your weekend true life crime quota. (Netflix)

How to watch: uhhhh…really?


America’s Game

Army vs. Navy. A game with pride and traditions much deeper than a regular old college football rivalry. The young men that step onto the field are writing a small piece of the history and traditions of our most sacred military institutions. Beyond that, THE GAME is about each team representing and bearing the pride and strength of the United States Army and United States Navy.

This game is about so much more than just football. Watch it.  (CBS | Saturday | 3/2c)

Not convinced? Check out the preview video.

How to watch: You can stream the game in most places through CBS All Access. If you’re not familiar with CBS All Access, it is CBS’s app that gives you access to stream live (in most cities) and on demand CBS content (two tiers $5.99 and $9.99 per month).

You can always watch free through your digital antenna if you prefer that route.


Season 3 Release: Mozart in the Jungle

Drugs. Sex. Classical Music. An Amazon Originals consistent winner over its first two seasons for its warmth and humor. Season 3 has been released to your Amazon account and is already for a good weekend binge sesh.

Looking for something good? Wondering what to watch this weekend? Jump into Season 3 or catch up on the first two seasons, so you’ll be ready for the latest as Hailey and Rodrigo cross paths in a chance meeting in Italy.

How to watch: Your Amazon Video account will take care of that.
