It’s almost the weekend, and that means you should book in another Gizmodo movie night. Tonight, stock up with a dozen bags of popcorn and a bucket of Coca-Cola, and strategically re-arrange the cushions on your couch into a fort; you're settling in for a marathon TV binge-watching session.
We've re-jigged our existing Netflix Movie Night series, and brought in Australia's other popular subscription video on demand services — Stan and Presto — to give you a broader selection of movies and TV shows to enjoy. On all three services, you can watch from your tablet or smartphone, on your PC or laptop, through your Smart TV, or through a media streaming dongle like the Google Chromecast, although specifics can vary.
