Netflix has put out a series of new shows and movies to get stuck in as we spend another weekend locked up.
And for those who may have almost completed Netflix, other streaming platforms also have a lot to offer.
Netflix, Sky, Amazon, BBC iPlayer and NOWTV have hosted us during these trying times as we continue to sink into something that will help us escape reality.
This week, Sky Documentaries broke records for its most talked-about documentary “Framing Britney Spears” which made many talk online.
Framing Britney Spears – Sky and NOWTV
First is the documentary that made the whole world talk.
Britney Spears’ framing looks at the singer’s rise to fame, her struggles in the spotlight over the past 22 years and her father Jamie’s controversial conservatism scandal.
One of the most amazing moments of the documentary saw an American Fortune-style show and asked the question ‘where one thing Britney Spears lost this year’, to which contestants replied ‘hair’ on her marriage ’and even‘ on her mind ’when the host giggled.
Sky Documentaries is Channel 114 for all Sky subscribers in the UK. It is also available on Virgin Media on Channel 278.
