This week HBO makes its assault on streaming with the new HBO Max service. At launch it will include tons of archival content like the back catalog of Friends, Rick & Morty and 2001: A Space Odyssey, as well as a fleet of new original shows, movies and specials hoping to get your attention on Wednesday.

I’m looking forward to the new Looney Tunes Cartoons, as well as the comedy/drama series Love Life with Anna Kendrick, but there’s a lot more to choose from.

Of course, Netflix is the current giant in streaming and it’s not laying down for the newcomer. This week it already added Uncut Gems for viewers in the US, and later this week it will premiere a Jeffrey Epstein documentary series and the new show Space Force starring Steve Carell. Sports fans can get their fill via esports with 2K League and The Race, or live action with two NASCAR races, Korean baseball and UFC.

Last but not least, games can check out the Minecraft Dungeons game, while on Xbox, there’s The Last Scape. It’s a hot air ballooning game filled with detailed LIDAR-scanned imagery that promises a Smart Delivery upgrade when the Xbox Series X arrives later this year. Look below to check out each day's highlights, including trailers and let us know what you think (or what we missed).
