What to watch right now on Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+ and Apple TV+
So, if you’ve picked up a new phone plan, complete with a streaming service — what should you be watching?
Our expert team at RadioTimes.com have cast an eye over all the biggest and best shows and films available across your favourite streaming services. Read on for some great places to start on your streaming service of choice.
Loki has been a hugely popular addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Played by Tom Hiddleston, Loki is the Norse God of Mischief and — as such — makes for an interesting anti-hero. He’s not the typical Marvel lead, and the show is all the more engrossing because of it. Our reviewers called the show “low key genius” and gave it an impressive four-star rating in our full Loki Disney+ review.
The Mandalorian was the show that really got Disney+ off the ground in the eyes of many viewers. This Star Wars spin-off wowed fans with its gritty space-western style and also bagged an impressive four-star rating from our team. Read the full Mandalorian Disney+ review for more information.
For more recommendations, take a look at our best shows on Disney+ page for the latest and greatest series. Alternatively, sign up to Disney+ for £7.99 per month or £79.90 a year.
Ted Lasso is one of the most talked-about Apple TV+ shows. It’s a knock-out sporting comedy starring Jason Sudeikis as a hapless American football manager who’s drafted in to manage an English ‘soccer’ team at the highest level. Take a look at our full Ted Lasso season 2 review for more information.
Servant is another interesting offering from Apple TV+. This psychological horror from genre king M Night Shyamalan stars Rupert Grint, Lauren Ambrose and Toby Kebbell. When a couple lose their young child, a lifelike doll is brought in to replace them, and supernatural events soon begin to occur.
Sex Education is an arresting three-season teen drama. It takes on some important themes around sexual identity, sexuality, and expression while being consistently dramatic and laugh-out-loud funny. Gillian Anderson and Asa Butterfield star as Jean and Otis Milburn — a sex therapist and her son. Otis soon accidentally becomes a sex therapist himself, offering advice to confused teenage school-mates and ending up in plenty of scrapes as a result.
Tiger King is one of the most widely watched shows of recent times and a stand-out addition to Netflix’s offering. It’s not necessarily the highest quality programme on the platform, but it’s proven to be compelling viewing for millions.

Amazon Prime Video
Clarkson’s Farm was an unexpected hit on Amazon Prime Video. This hilarious documentary series follows motoring-journalist-turned-farmer Jeremy Clarkson as he attempts to make a success of his huge Cotswolds Farm.
Clarkson always splits opinion, but the show has been very well received by the UK’s farming community, with co-star Kaleb Cooper becoming an overnight cult hero.
If you don’t go for a Black Friday phone deal with Amazon Prime Video, you can still sign up to Prime for a free 30-day trial. It then costs £7.99 per month.
