JustWatch: ‘Only Murders in the Building,’ ‘The Courier’ Among Content Coming, Leaving Streaming Platforms Through Aug. 23

The fourth episode from season three of Hulu’s “Only Murders in the Building” and episode 10 on season two of Max’s “And Just Like That…” highlight content arriving on U.S. streaming platforms for the week ending Aug. 23, according to new data from JustWatch, which  tracks the weekly streaming video habits, including digital retail and rental, of 20 million users across 59 markets, including the United States.

On the flipside, movies such as Les Misérables (Netflix), Lone Survivor (Peacock) and The Courier (Prime Video) are among content exiting streaming platforms over the next seven days.

The movement of movies and TV shows on streaming platforms shows increasingly shorter windows for license agreements between content holders and distributors in the OTT video.

For example, Netflix has exclusive rights to Sony Pictures theatrical releases for 18 months, after which the movies will stream on Disney+.

“This deal not only allows us to bring Sony’s impressive slate of film franchises and new IP to Netflix in the U.S., but it also establishes a new source of first run films for Netflix movie lovers,” said Scott Stubler, head of global films at Netflix.
