As if that wasn't hard enough, these services are constantly adding and removing dozens of titles with little to no warning. In our monthly segment "On Demand", we&nbsp; aim to help you make your movie nights memorable by offering our favorite movies and shows being made available this month.&nbsp; Thu, 03 Jul 2014 17:51:54 +0000 Taylor Quimby 51274 at http://nhpr.org On Demand: What's New To Netflix, Redbox, And Amazon Prime For July 2014 On Demand: What's New To Netflix And Redbox For June 2014 http://nhpr.org/post/demand-whats-new-netflix-and-redbox-june-2014 <p></p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">If you subscribe to Netflix Instant you already know that its selection is vast, but finding something you really want to watch can still be a challenge. &nbsp;There are dozens of new titles added every month, and although&nbsp; many of them aren't exactly fresh, there's still plenty worth watching, even if it is for the second time.
