Winter is coming, but here's what's hot on streaming services in April

School holidays, autumn weather, the Anzac Day long weekend -- there are plenty of reasons to stay in and stream your entertainment in April, and the streaming services are delivering.

"Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt."

Eric Liebowitz/Netflix

I'll level with you. This month, everyone is going to be anticipating and then reliving the Season 6 premiere of a certain Gamey-Throney TV show that's exclusive to Foxtel (at least I will be, after binge watching the show for five hours a day last month). So the streaming services have a lot of work to do.

Luckily, they're delivering. Netflix is coming back with Season 2 of "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," the funniest story of post-kidnapping liberation since Theon Greyjoy jumped from the walls of Winterfell. Do yourself a favour and catch up on Season 1 to see what you get when Ellie Kemper (of "The Office") gets a show of her own.

Fellow Office alum Mindy Kaling is over on Presto with four seasons of "The Mindy Project," but the big drawcard for Presto this month is the movie catalogue. "Jurassic World" makes an appearance, plus plenty of kids titles for the holidays.

Stan has some new series direct from the US, including "The Girlfriend Experience" and "Containment," but we're most excited about the arrival of all 11 seasons of "Frasier." In fact, we wish more streaming platforms would make a big deal of full-run classic series like this -- perfect for putting on the TV as the weather gets colder.
