BBC America

The last full week of 2013 is mostly filled with college football bowl games and holiday specials, but the streaming services have some treats. Netflix will premiere the first five episodes of Turbo F.A.S.T. this week, while Amazon continues its original series Betas and Alpha House. HBO's Treme wraps up its run Sunday night with a 75-minute finale, but Doctor Who fans can unwrap two specials from BBC America on Christmas Day including The Time of the Doctor and a goodbye to Matt Smith. For gamers, this week's highlight is a port, as Halo: Spartan Assault arrives for the Xbox One (the Xbox 360 version is due in January). Check after the break for our weekly listing of what to look out for in TV, Blu-ray and gaming.
