Here's what's new on Stan, Netflix Australia, Foxtel Now, and Amazon Prime Video in October

Netflix

Every month Stan, Netflix Australia, Amazon Prime Video and Foxtel Now add new content, so we’ve picked a few highlights for October, and some great horror picks for Halloween.

Newcomer Jay Pharaoh is hilarious in Stan’s brand-new comedy series White Famous. He plays a talented emerging comedian who’s trying to balance landing the dream gig while maintaining his credibltity and dignity. It also has Jamie Foxx in a cheerleader’s skirt, need I say more?

Warning: There are a few NSFW moments in the trailer below.

American science fiction/horror series Stranger Things Season 2 is going to be seriously freaky when it is released on October 27 on Netflix.

We hope you’re wearing something warm when you watch this trailer below, because you may get some serious chills.

Watch the trailer below.

Foxtel Now is celebrating Halloween with ‘Frightfest’ — 20 classic scary movies released from Friday October 13 the way up to Halloween on Tuesday October 31 including The Ring, Saw, and Blair Witch.

For all the NFL (American football) fans, Amazon Prime Video will be airing every Thursday Night Football games from late September (airing Friday mornings due to the time difference). Among others, the New England Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles and Miami Dolphins will play in October.

Watch the launch trailer below.
