With every new weekend comes new opportunities to catch up on the latest streaming options across movies, TV, and sports. There’s always plenty on at home, and in the midst of the summer heat, home might be the best place to be. Here are our picks for the best new shows, movies, and sports to check out over the coming weekend:
What to watch on Netflix
New on Hulu
Returning for a third season, Only Murders in the Building continues to be one of the funniest, lightest shows on TV. After a first season that parodied the mysteries of the true crime drama, each subsequent season has found ways to keep innovating, in part because people keep dying in that same New York apartment building. Really, though, Only Murders is a chance to watch Martin Short and Steve Martin do their thing, and even though they’re both in their 70s now, nobody is doing it better than they are.

UFC Fight Night: Luque vs. Dos Anjos — 8/12
The welterweight bout between UFC Lightweight Champion Rafael dos Anjos and Vicente Luque is sure to garner plenty of attention when two of Brazil’s great fighters square off in the ring. Luque comes into the fight with a 21-9-1 record, while Dos Anjos enters the ring at 32-14. Dos Anjos is the favorite in the bout, but the odds between the two are fairly close, which means this could be a match to remember. The fight will kick off at 7:00 p.m. ET.
New York Yankees vs. Miami Marlins
Now that Aaron Judge is back and hitting homers, the New York Yankees are looking more and more like they might have a fighting chance of making it to the playoffs. Although they’re still a few games out, this series against the Marlins will be crucial for determining whether the team can make a playoff run happen, just when many wanted to count the team out. The games will take place Friday at 6:40 p.m. ET, Saturday at 4:10 p.m., and Sunday at 1:40 p.m.
Los Angeles Angels vs. Houston Astros
The Los Angeles Angels are not very good as a team, but their star player, Shohei Ohtani, is always worth showing up for. This weekend, they’ll be going up against the Houston Astros, who are currently one of the best teams in the league. The games themselves might not be all that close, but one thing we can guarantee is that Ohtani will do something electrifying that reminds us just how good he is. The games will take place Friday at 8:10 p.m. ET, Saturday at 7:15 p.m., and Sunday at 2:10 p.m.
