The Best Movies and TV Shows Coming to Netflix, HBO, Amazon Prime, and Hulu in January

Clockwise: A still of Tom Hanks running in Forrest Gump, a still of Robert De Niro in front of a red velvet curtain in The King of Comedy, a still of Regina Hall and four other girls dressed in waitress uniforms in Support the Girls, and a still of LaKeith Stanfield talking to Steven Yeun in Sorry to Bother You.
Forrest Gump, The King of Comedy, Support the Girls, and Sorry to Bother You are just a few of the great movies coming to streaming this month. Photo illustration by Slate. Photos by Paramount Pictures, 20th Century Studios, Magnolia Pictures, and Annapurna Pictures.

Every month, tons of new movies and TV shows become available to stream for free for U.S. subscribers to Netflix, HBO Max, Prime Video, and Hulu. With so many different streaming services, it can be hard to keep track of them all—especially if you belong to more than one. Below, we present to you the ultimate streaming guide. We’ll let you decide which service has the best new titles. (All titles arrive Jan. 1 unless otherwise specified.)
