    All The New Movies Out On Demand This Weekend

    A little something for everyone.

    Welcome back, movie lovers! As you know, movies are being released digitally on demand instead of in movie theaters right now. Their loss is our gain because you can watch these new releases from the comfort of your own couch!

    Nickelodeon / Via

    In the US, "on demand" usually means that a title will be available to rent via your cable TV provider and most (but not necessarily all) of the following services: Amazon, Apple, Comcast, Vudu, Google, YouTube, Fandango, DirecTV, Charter, Dish, Cox, Altice, Sony, Frontier, and Verizon. Each movie's availability varies by studio, but you can usually find them in the aforementioned services.

    Let's see what's coming out this week!
