Wondering what’s coming to Disney+ and HBO Max if you’re a subscriber? Or whether these streaming apps are worth signing up for? Here are seven great arrivals across both platforms this month to help you make the decision.

The Book of Boba Fett has been one of the more controversial of Disney’s additions to the Star Wars universe, with the series receiving mixed reviews from both critics and casual fans. However, many fans have found chapters 6 and chapter 7 to be redeeming, so it just might be worth sticking through to the end.
The 2021 film Free Guy, starring Ryan Reynolds, is available to stream on Disney+ starting February 23. The film follows Reynolds playing a video game “NPC” named Guy as he comes to realize that his life is part of a game.
