Discovery has its annual Shark Week event again, and from what I can see, at least there are no alien shark documentaries on the list this year. Meanwhile Netflix is premiering its latest studio castoff sci-fi film, Extinction plus a new season of Orange is the New Black, as No Man's Sky will reintroduce itself with the big Next expansion and debut on Xbox One. Hulu is streaming the first episode of Stephen King's Castle Rock series while Amazon goes behind the scenes of Tour de France food with Eat.Race.Win. and movie fans can get Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One on Blu-ray. Also, it's time for the Overwatch League finals, streaming on Twitch and airing on ESPN, Disney XD and ABC. Look after the break to check out each day's highlights, including trailers and let us know what you think (or what we missed).
