There is no shortage of new shows and movies to watch. If anything, the biggest problem is searching through the endless lists of movie titles and box sets to find one that you actually want to get away with for your weekend.
This is where ScreenHits comes in. The app, which just launched on Amazon’s Fire TV platform, brings together some of your favorite streaming services into a single interface.

While Disney + can only recommend shows based on what you’ve seen on Disney +, ScreenHits can track your habits on Prime, StarzPlay, and ITV Hub to suggest the perfect movie for all of your interests.
