A monthly look at what's scheduled to be added to the catalogues of streaming services Netflix Canada, Shomi and CraveTV:

TOP PICKS

— The third season of the acclaimed political drama "House of Cards" hits Netflix at the end of the month with 13 new episodes to stream. In a teaser trailer for the new season, a menacing Francis Underwood — played by Kevin Spacey, who recently won the Golden Globe for best TV drama actor — snarls: "You want to know what takes real courage? Holding it all together when the stakes are this high." Premieres Feb. 27.

— A day after debuting online for Amazon Prime customers in the U.S., the new crime drama "Bosch" will launch on Bell's CraveTV. Titus Welliver ("Sons of Anarchy," "Argo," "Lost") stars as homicide detective Harry Bosch, the lead character in a series of books written by Michael Connelly, who also penned "The Lincoln Lawyer." The show is executive produced by Eric Overmyer, who worked on "The Wire" and "Boardwalk Empire." Premieres Feb. 14.

— New this month on Shomi — which can be accessed by some Rogers and Shaw customers — is "Outlander," a time-traveller period piece about a Second World War-era nurse who is transported back in time to 1743. Entertainment Weekly loved it, saying "what makes it just plain good is the escapist fun of a romance told uncommonly well." Premieres Feb. 13.
