January is the coldest month of the year. Or it’s one of the two coldest. It doesn’t really matter too much. The point is, it’s a frigid 31 days for a lot of the country.

But the good news is, you can stay warm next month, curled up under a blanket on your couch watching a ton of high-quality entertainment from the various streaming services. Below, you’ll find the best of what’s leaving and arriving on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and HBO Now in January 2017. Stream on!



A slew of great sports docs from ESPN are hitting the showers this month. But starting New Year’s Day, you can treat yourself to a Superman marathon. And if you like humor about Hot Pockets, McDonald’s fries, and being a pale person, there’s a new comedy special from Jim Gaffigan.

In addition to a handful of interesting films, Amazon Prime is busting out a pair of original series. The first, Sneaky Pete, stars Giovanni Ribisi as a conman who assumes the identity of his cellmate. The second one, Z: The Beginning of Everything, is definitely worth a look. It’s a series about F. Scott Fitzgerald’s crazy wife Zelda, and it stars Christina Ricci.
