New Releases On Netflix June 2015
Netflix has become the Apple of streaming services. With over 62 million subscribers and growing, a stock approaching $600 per share and some of the best original content anywhere, Netflix may be putting Network TV out of business.
But onto what you really care about. What the heck is coming to Netflix in June that you should be watching. Lets face it, as awesome as Netflix can be you often have to sift through a lot of turds to find that gem of a show.
What makes is more frustrating is that Netflix doesn't release which films and shows it's adding to it's streaming library until 2 to 3 weeks out.
That said, they do release this information several weeks in advance and this site will be updated as new information becomes available.
You Might Have Missed: Shameless
A hidden gem in the Netflix library is the British import Shameless. Showtime produced an American version starring William M. Macy, also not bad but the British version adds some extra flavor the remake doesn't quite capture.
Netflix recently added season 10 of Shameless bringing the total to 139 shows. So hit play, sit back and enjoy a hilarious British Import.

Hot Girls Wanted
Hot Girls Wanted is a documentary produced by Rashida Jones, best know for her role in Parks and Rec.
Hot Girls Wanted focuses on the pornography industry, particularly asking the question how do so many 18 and 19 year old women end up in the porn industry?
Given the recent focus on women being exploited on college campuses and a culture of date rape in conjunction with a focus on women making less than their male counterparts.
Hot Girls Wanted adds another layer to an important discussion regarding the lacking equality status of women in American culture.
Move Over Matrix, Sense 8 is Coming June 5th
This biggest thing coming to Netflix in June is the new series Sense 8 produced by the Wachowski brothers, creators of the Matrix Trilogy.
The series consist of 12 episodes which will all be available to stream on Netflix on June 5th.
The premise is 8 strangers that are somehow connected to one another mentally and emotionally in the aftermath of a tragic event. The mystery of how and why this has happened is sure to make Sense 8 an interesting and compelling new show.
Netflix has not had many misses when producing original shows as can be seen with their most recent hit Daredevil. Based on the trailer Netflix subscribers are in for yet another binge worthy show on June 5th in Sense 8.

What Netflix Original Is Your Favorite?
What has really made Netflix stand out among it's competitors is their ability to churn out oneself produced hit after another.
So far, Netflix has produced the critically acclaimed shows House of Cards and Orange is the New Black.
Recent additions include, the excellent Bloodline and the Marvel addition, Daredevil.
And if quirky comedies are your thing, then don't miss the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, a close relative to the hits series 30 Rock. Both shows enjoy a heavy dose of Tina Fey's influence and unique style of comedy.
Although Netflix has had a miss or two, most notably the underwhelming, Marco Polo, their hits far outpace their flops.
In fact, if the only shows you watch are Netflix's original content, the subscription price would still be well worth it. Netflix set out with the goal to become the new HBO by producing must watch shows and from every indication they have succeeded.
Amazon Prime Trail Offer
A great addition to Netflix is Amazon Prime.
Amazon Prime has many of the same movies and shows as Netflix and they also produce their own series.
One of their series, Transparent has gotten rave reviews and was nominated for several awards.
Amazon also produces, Alpha House starring John Goodman which can only be seen on the Amazon Prime service.
An Amazon Prime subscription costs $99 annually so is about the same cost as Netflix. However, Amazon Prime offers something that Netflix doesn't and that is free shipping on most item purchased on the Amazon site. Given that Amazon sells pretty much everything these days, the free shipping will more than pay for the streaming service throughout the year.
So go ahead and treat yourself to a free 30 day subscription to Amazon Prime this month.
