What's new on Australian streaming services in January

If you're trying to entertain kids in the school holidays, it's worth signing up for the slew of titles coming to Australia's SVOD services. If not, then don your top hat for a retro "Sherlock" special.

Stan has scored the exclusive Australian premiere of the Benedict Cumberbatch-led "Sherlock: The Abominable Bride."

Presto has scored a massive number of titles for January, with plenty of kids' shows to fill the long school-free hours over the summer break, so if you don't have a streaming subscription, now is the time to get a free trial. There's also plenty to entertain the adults, including "Zombieland" and "True Detective", which is definitely worth a re-watch.

Gritty reboot "Sherlock" is also getting a gritty Victorian reboot and Stan has scored the Australian exclusive for the new year, while Netflix has picked up Season 2 of comedy "Brooklyn Nine-Nine". If you like "Saturday Night Live" veterans and Andy Samberg of "I'm on a Boat" fame, it's the comedy to watch.
