The change of season means more than just the return of pumpkin spice everything. It’s also the return of binge-watching weather. You know, the kind of cool, breezy weather that’s perfect for staying in and enjoying an entertainment marathon.

 

With so many options floating around, it can be hard to pin down what to watch. But we’re here to help, so we’ve prepared a list of what to watch during your next binge-watching session.

 

When you think about binge watching, it’s likely that TV shows are the first thing to come to mind, especially shows on streaming services such as Netflix. But those aren’t your only options. You can also get access to your favorite TV shows from on-demand services, such as On Demand from FiOS TV. More commonly associated with movies, on-demand services also give viewers access to their favorite shows anytime, anywhere. With service like that, you could binge on some quality programming.

 

Game of Thrones just wrapped up its sixth season, and season seven is still at least half a year away, maybe even more. If you’ve been a TV fan of any kind, you’ve no doubt at least heard about this fantasy series from HBO, and with the new season a ways away, now is the perfect time to either give the show a re-watch or experience it for the first time.

 

Similarly, American Horror Story also has a new season lined up, although it’s coming up much sooner, on September 14. You might not have enough time to check out the entire series on demand (if you do though, let us know, because that is impressive), but you could definitely check out the latest season, Hotel, which stars Lady Gaga and is a particularly dark and horror-filled season. And you can enjoy the good times anywhere, especially with a service such as Frontier TV Everywhere on hand.

 

If you’re in the mood for something newer, we’ve still got you covered. There’s never been a better time to have high-speed internet, especially if you’re talking FiOS, if for no other reason than the blazing-fast speeds that keep you connected to online streaming services such as the previously mentioned Netflix, even when you’re connected through Wi-Fi. This means you’re always connected to even more quality programming.

 

If you’re a fan of Stephen King, Steven Spielberg, or the ‘80s in general, you’re going to want to check out Stranger Things. This sci-fi/horror series recently took the internet by storm with its nostalgic mood and nail-biting suspense, not to mention some of the best acting a Netflix series has had to date. If you haven’t seen it, the fall season sets the perfect mood to make this the subject of your next binge-watching session.

 

If you’re looking for a more action-oriented session, you won’t want to miss Marvel’s newest Netflix series, Luke Cage. The titular character returns after his debut in the previous Marvel Netflix series Jessica Jones. Marvel’s Netflix series have been consistently good ever since Daredevil began the trend, so you won’t want to miss this one, especially if you’re a comic book fan.

 

Hopefully we’ve given you more than a few ideas for what to watch next time you’re looking to spend time at home. Whether you’re Netflix and chillin’, trying out your video on demand offerings, or using your high-speed internet connection to stream on other apps, grab your favorite lounging blanket and snacks, and get to watching. Happy viewing!
