From TV drama to documentaries, original films to stand-up comedy, Australia's streaming services are getting new content added all the time. Read on to see all the content that will be added to Stan, Foxtel and Amazon Prime Video's libraries in August.

Stan

This month has some great watching on Stan, with the return of Better Call Saul, a brand new take on the classic Get Shorty with comedy faves Chris O'Dowd and Ray Romano, and Sacha Baron Cohen returns for the shocking Who Is America leading up to the finale this August.

Who Is America?

Famous for creating a roster of iconic moments and incendiary characters, Baron Cohen returns to series television for the first time in more than a decade, writing and directing WHO IS AMERICA? In the works over the past year, the seven-episode series will explore the diverse individuals, from the infamous to the unknown across the political and cultural spectrum, who populate the unique nation.

Better Call Saul

This season the bad guys get badder... as Chuck's death catalyses Jimmy McGill's (Bob Odenkirk) transformation into Saul Goodman. In the wake of his loss, Jimmy takes steps into the criminal world that will put his future as a lawyer - and his relationship with Kim (Rhea Seehorn) - in jeopardy.

Get Shorty

Chris O'Dowd (Bridesmaids) and Ray Romano (Everybody Loves Raymond) headline this hilarious remake of Barry Sonnenfeld's classic crime comedy about a hitman who decides to head out on a new career path as a film producer. The second season comes to Stan August 13th, same day as the U.S.

With assistance from government epidemiologist Dr. Cathy Mueller (Abbie Cornish) and Suleiman’s wife Hanin (Dina Shihabi), Jack becomes an unexpected hero as he races to stop the extremist from unleashing an insidious assault on U.S. soil.
