Netflix continues to turn the heat up on the competition by expanding its new movie offerings and other viewing options available for streaming in October 2014. In October, the streaming media giant will continue adding new titles to its extensive library and offering members a vast variety of viewing options that include its own original content, new movie and TV show releases, as well as classic programming just made available via streaming media. Here are some of the new viewing options available for streaming on Netflix in October 2014.
On October 1, new titles for streaming include the complete series run of Gilmore Girls. On that day, all seven seasons will become available for viewing to Netflix subscribers. The fastest-talking, witty, and charismatic series that captured the vibe of self-deprecating humor and unique family dynamics finally makes its way to the streaming media service. Moreover, the dynamic and chemistry that existed between the two females stars Lauren Graham (Parenthood) and Alexis Bledel (Mad Men), as well as their characters, truly defined the series and made it a cult phenomenon during its run. Their mother-daughter bond struck a chord as Stars Hollow welcomed audiences each week. Added to that equation, the incredible and insightful writing of Amy Sherman-Palladino created a winning combination.
Other new viewing options available for streaming in October 2014 on Netflix include the October 1 addition of the 1982 classic film Annie, which starred legendary comedienne Carol Burnett (The Carol Burnett Show) and respected actor Albert Finney (Erin Brockovich), as well as the one and only season of ABC series, Hostages, starring Toni Collette (United States of Tara), Dylan McDermott (The Practice), and Tate Donovan (The O.C.). Despite the fact that the show never found an audience last season, maybe it will have better luck as a one-off on the streaming media giant. Other new offerings set to debut on October 1 include the 1979 seminal film about bitter divorce and child custody, Kramer vs. Kramer, which starred Dustin Hoffman (Meet the Fockers) and Meryl Streep (Silkwood), as well as the popular romantic comedy, Sleepless in Seattle (1993), which starred Tom Hanks (Castaway) and Meg Ryan (Proof of Life).
On October 2, all five seasons and 110 episodes of the CW hit The Vampire Diaries aired to date will become available for viewing. This should be a huge boost for all the teen-targeted Netflix lovers. Other new offerings set to debut on this date include the first season of the CW monarchy series, Reign, as well as the 2013 film version of the horror classic, Carrie. The original 1976 version of the prom queen-possessed flick starred Sissy Spacek (A Coal Miner’s Daughter). For TV lovers, there are plenty of new viewing options available for streaming in October 2014 on Netflix, including Season 1 of the Vampire Diaries spin-off series, The Originals, as well as the most recent seasons of other CW shows, such as Hart of Dixie, Arrow, and Supernatural.
As the summer season concludes and Fall 2014 approaches, Netflix has many new viewing options available for streaming in October, including the second season of FOX hit series, The Following, starring Kevin Bacon (Footloose) and James Purefoy (Revenge), the indie film gem, Stay, which starred Taylor Schilling (Orange Is the New Black) and Aidan Quinn (Elementary) as a couple facing an unexpected pregnancy, as well as the sixth season of FX mega-hit series, Sons of Anarchy, which will help round out the new offerings for streaming on October 25. While the seasons may be ready for change, viewers will continue to benefit from Netflix’s extensive library of new movies, TV series, and other viewing options available for streaming in October 2014.
