Apple's wild TV service, Jason Momoa joins Dune, Alita's epic battle

This week on Between the Streams, we’ll be discussing the latest details of Apple’s radical new TV streaming service, which is rumored to be making an appearance as soon as Apple’s planned March 25 event. From J.J. Abrams and Oprah Winfrey to bundled services and a fancy new patent, there’s a lot to unpack here.

There’s plenty more to talk about this week, of course, not the least of which is Robert Rodriguez and James Cameron’s epic new CG adventure Alita: Battle Angel, which may be worth a trip to the big screen for sci-fi fans. Also this week, we’ll chat about Hulu’s multiple new Marvel series, Jason Momoa’s casting in the Dune reboot, a Coming to America reboot, and so much more.

Between the Streams

Between the Streams is your weekly streaming guide to all of the hottest, most important, and (of course) dumbest new developments in streaming and entertainment, providing a handy recap of the week that was and a preview for what is ahead. We tackle the best and brightest movies and TV shows coming your way, including way too many superhero movies — and we love it.

At Between the Streams, we take on the big issues of our times, like whether or not Star Wars is going to go off the rails in the next few years (probably), or why five seasons is the ultimate zenith for any drama that wants to go out on top (thank you, Breaking Bad). We’re just as happy arguing about whether or not Alf was a quintessential ’80s sitcom as we are pondering Hollywood’s increasing penchant for reboots and nostalgia-driven mash-ups like Stranger Things. In short, we’re all about the most awesome, water cooler-worthy entertainment subjects that happen each and every week.

We do the tough part so you don’t have to, digging up all the stories you need to know about each Friday in a fun and succinct weekly chat. So sit back, grab something to drink, and enjoy the ride. It’s all entertainment from here, and let’s face it, we could all use the break.
