New on Netflix Canada, CraveTV in August


A monthly look at what's scheduled to be added to the catalogues of streaming services Netflix Canada and CraveTV in August:


The Netflix series "Marvel's The Defenders," which premieres Aug. 18, unites the lead characters from several past superhero shows. The eight-episode ensemble series sees Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist team up in a bid to save New York City. Also coming to Netflix is one of the year's best picture Oscar contenders: "Fences." Launching on Aug. 24, the film based on a Pulitzer Prize-winning play led to a best supporting actress Oscar win for Viola Davis, a best actor nomination for Denzel Washington, and a nod for the best adapted screenplay award.

CraveTV premieres new seasons of Showtime series "Ray Donovan" (launching Aug. 6), "Episodes" and "Dice" (both starting on Aug. 20), along with finales for "Casual" (Aug. 1) and "Saving Hope" (Aug. 2).
