StreamSavvy Guide: What to watch January 9, 2017

StreamSavvy’s daily guide for the best TV from January 9, 2017. Watch the College Football Championship without cable tonight or stream the Crown. Here’s the post with what to watch, why you should check it out, and how to stream it.


The Hollywood Foreign Press made it pretty clear last night. The show to watch from 2016 is The Crown. The Netflix original took the Best Television Series Drama, and Claire Foy took the best actress award in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Drama Television Series….and then there’s a little football game tonight. There you  have it.

Binge The Crown

Golden Globe Winner: The Crown

The $100 million bet from Netflix. The Crown is a period drama and is Netflix’s attempt to capitalize on the popularity of shows like Downton Abbey and to a lesser extent Peaky Blinders.

The first season, released in November 2016, is the story of the beginning of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign of the United Kingdom. The Crown follows gives us an inside look at Queen Elizabeth II starting just before her wedding in 1947. The plan is for six seasons that will bring the story right up to the present day.

The average person spends 4 YEARS of their lives searching for something to watch. Really. Take your life back and download the StreamSavvy mobile app FREE right now.

Here’s the bottom line on The Crown. If you’re looking for an exciting, heart pounding drama with tons of violence, sex, and messiness, this is NOT the show for you. If you want to see Claire Foy, the actress who plays Queen Elizabeth, kill it by pulling you into the struggle between being a queen and being a young woman all with crazy good cinematography, then this is a great watch. (Netflix) 

How to watch: you can watch online, on your mobile device, on your smart TV, or on your streaming device through the Netflix app. If you don’t have it, or aren’t using your parents’ / sister’s / neighbor’s login, you can sign up for a free trial then roll into a $9.99 per month subscription if you like it.

Watch the College Football Championship without cable

Watch the College Football Championship without Cable

It’s starts with the first whistle kicking off two-a-days in August. Half a year later, two teams have stood the test of time and go head-to-head. As the Clemson Tigers take on the Alabama Crimson Tide tonight for the title of National Champion, we’re all wondering if anyone can beat that insane Alabama defense.

The answer is yes. The winning formula is a super talented D-line and Deshaun Watson. Watson tore up the Ohio State Buckeyes in the semifinal game while the defense shut out the Buckeyes in a bowl game for the first time in almost 100 years. If any team can take down Alabama tonight, it’s the Clemson Tigers. (ESPN 8/7c)

New to Netflix: One Day at a Time

New to Netflix: One Day at a Time

A “new oldie” on Netflix. One Day at a Time is the latest original series to drop on Netflix, and it’s already getting tons of great buzz. The Netflix original is a remake of the 1975 version produced by Norman Lear. I think we’re supposed to know who that is. On further research, he is a TV production legend who has been dropping hit shows for decades.

The Netflix series, with its 13 episode first season, is all about a Cuban-American family. Penelope is the matriarch of the family and a former military veteran who is separated from her husband. She’s raising a teenaged daughter, the idealist, and a son, a socially awkward middle-schooler. Adding to the mix is Penelope’s mother, Lydia, who pops up to help out around the house.

How to watch: you can watch online, on your mobile device, on your smart TV, or on your streaming device through the Netflix app. If you don’t have it, or aren’t using your parents’ / sister’s / neighbor’s login, you can sign up for a free trial then roll into a $9.99 per month subscription if you like it.

Award Season Kick Off: Golden Globes

We love TV. So go figure we’re going to watching the Globes on Sunday night. You should too. There are some awesome shows nominated in both drama and comedy categories with great performances across the board. We’re thinking it’s going to be This Is Us in Drama and Atlanta in Comedy. You heard it here first. (Sunday | NBC | 8pm ET)

How to watch: In select markets (basically major cities), you can stream NBC through Sling TV (Blue). If you are in an area that doesn’t get live TV through Sling, your digital antenna should work well.

For the red carpet junkies among us, there are a bunch of ways to stream the red carpet.

Binge The Crown: Stream the Award Winning Show

The $100 million bet from Netflix. The story of Queen Elizabeth II, the destruction of the woman she was before becoming royalty, and the replacement of that woman with a monarch. If you haven’t yet, it’s time to binge The Crown.

The Crown is a period drama and is Netflix’s attempt to capitalize on the popularity of shows like Downton Abbey and to a lesser extent Peaky Blinders. Season one hit Netflix in November 2016, and Netflix has confirmed a second season. Filming is allegedly underway in London right now. Our best guess for a Season two release date is December 2017. But for now, binge The Crown season one to your heart’s content with the comfort that there’s plenty more binge to be had here.

The first season is the story of the beginning of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign of the United Kingdom. The Crown follows gives us an inside look at Queen Elizabeth II starting just before her wedding in 1947. The plan is for six seasons that will bring the story right up to the present day.

THE app you need for streaming. Download the StreamSavvy mobile app FREE right now.

The Crown is created and written by Peter Morgan and produced by Left Bank Pictures and Sony Pictures Television for Netflix.

Binge the Crown – Is it worth it?

Here’s the bottom line on The Crown. If you’re looking for an exciting, heart pounding drama with tons of violence, sex, and messiness, this is NOT the show for you. If you want to see Claire Foy, the actress who plays Queen Elizabeth, kill it by pulling you into the struggle between being a queen and being a young woman all with crazy good cinematography, then this is a great watch. Still not convinced? Check out the trailer:

StreamSavvy Guide: What to watch December 28, 2016

StreamSavvy’s guide for the best tv, what to watch, and how to stream it December 28, 2016, including the PBS special, Frontline: Exodus, and the Russell Athletic Bowl streaming live on ESPN.

We normally stick to TV shows, but since it’s the holidays and Netflix actually got a pretty big movie, we’re going to sneak that in today with a special from PBS for your daily best in TV.

Inside the European Refugee Crisis, Frontline: Exodus

Thousands of refugees and migrants fleeing war, persecution and hardship risk everything for a better life in a European country every year. Only the blessed few actually escape their home countries and travel safely across the Mediterranean in anything but seaworthy, makeshift boats. Over the last two years, more than 1.3 million people have arrived in Europe after crossing the Mediterranean. Nearly 9,000 have died or gone missing along the way.

Frontline: Exodus, a PBS special, gives you never-before-seen access to the struggles of the refugee journey. Director James Bluemel combines his footage with video filmed by refugees and migrants themselves throughout the 2-hour special.

Frontline: Exodus aired for the first time last but is available today for streaming online. (PBS)

How to watch: you can watch right now online through the PBS website or your can stream it through the PBS app which is free.

New to Netflix, Captain America: Civil War

For all you Marvel fans out there. Or you not-so-Marvel fans that wanted to wait until you didn’t have to pay $20 to see it at the theater. Captain America: Civil War hit Netflix this week. For real – Netflix got a decently big movie, and we’re pumped to watch it tonight.

The film was released in theaters in May and is the long-awaited sequel to the 2011 Captain America: First Avenger film. The plot centers on the increasing political pressure for accountability for the actions of the Avengers when they lead to collateral damage. Captain America (Chris Evans) believes superheroes should remain free to defend humanity without government interference. Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) vehemently disagree and sides with the government accountability. With these two superheroes digging in on opposite sides, Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) have to decide where they stand in an escalating battle.

How to watch: you can watch online, on your mobile device, on your smart TV, or on your streaming device through the Netflix app. If you don’t have it, or aren’t using your parents’ / sister’s / neighbor’s login, you can sign up for a free trial then roll into a $9.99 per month subscription if you like it.

On the other side of the field is a Miami team that carries a long tradition of winning but continues to look for its identity in the latest chapter of college football. (ESPN 5:30/4:30c)
