Vinyl

As more and more streaming services barge onto the market, we do our best to keep you updated on what’s showing up on the billion or so content providers competing for your digital dollar and attention. Case in point: HBO’s Now service, which allows users to watch the premium cable network’s new shows shortly after they air. At the moment, that means Vinyl, which debuted last Sunday, and has already picked up a renewal notice despite iffy initial ratings. As we move fully into March, it’ll be joined by returning series like Togetherness and Girls, along with new animated series Animals.

On the movie side of things, meanwhile, Now is playing host to a pair of Oscar-nominated documentary shorts: A Girl In The River, about honor killings in Pakistan, and Body Team 12, about Red Cross workers operating during the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. And, on a note that’s only even vaguely positive due to contrast with the preceding two entries, the service will also host a taped performance of Audra Mcdonald’s Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill, about the final days of Billie Holiday.

But hey, once you’re done inducing near-terminal depression, you can tuck into The Birdcage, which Now is offering up just in time for its 20-year anniversary. So that’ll be fun, at least until the constant reminder of Robin Williams’s death drives you even deeper, both into yourself, and the HBO Now archives, in your search for something, anything, to take away the pain. (So maybe just watch Raising Arizona or Super Troopers instead.)
