After kicking off the month with a strong push of fresh content, Netflix is slowing things down a bit as it heads into the weekend. Whereas previous weekends have seen dozens of new titles made available for bingeing, this weekend will only see the addition of four new titles, only one of which is a Netflix original.
Of course, the slim pickings of new additions joining dozens of others made over recent weeks and months, as well as the streaming giant’s ongoing slate of holiday programming, meaning that subscribers still have plenty of options to add to their library.
