With the restart of summer movie season once again pushed back due to the coronavirus outbreak and drive-in theaters in Massachusetts mostly showing classic titles, July is shaping up to be another month of entertainment dominated by streaming.

Luckily, streaming giants like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime still have plenty of new releases coming up, as well as some old favorites.

Here’s the full list of new movies and TV shows arriving on the three platforms, as well as our must-watch picks from each company.

Top pick: “Best in Show”

The comedy world lost a titan in May when Fred Willard passed away at the age of 86. Hulu has added four of Willard’s collaborations with mockumentary filmmaker Christopher Guest to its library with “A Mighty Wind,” “Best in Show,” “For Your Consideration,” and “Waiting for Guffman.” All of them are worth your time, but Willard’s turn as a clueless dog show announcer in “Best in Show” is in a class all its own.
