Everything New Coming To Crave This August

So many great shows, so little time!
Everything New Coming To Crave This August

While Netflix has been the longstanding streaming service of choice for quite a while, there's no question that Crave has its own perks, particularly their partnership with HBO.

Crave essentially has three tiers of subscription, so with all of the new shows being released on the platform this month, we've made a point of indicating if you need their Movies+HBO subscription or their Starz subscription in order to get the new flicks and series you're after. If there's no note beside the title, you get access to the program with the basic Crave package.

This month has a fantastic array of documentaries, new TV series classic old films, and more.
