Here's a full rundown of streaming titles scheduled to arrive on each service:
A Tale of Two Kitchens (Netflix, May 22) - Two countries, two restaurants, one vision. At Gabriela Cámara's acclaimed Contramar in Mexico City, the welcoming, uniformed waiters are as beloved by diners as the menu featuring fresh, local seafood caught within 24 hours. The entire staff sees themselves as part of an extended family. Meanwhile at Cala in San Francisco, Cámara hires staff from different backgrounds and cultures, including ex-felons and ex-addicts who view the work as an important opportunity to grow as individuals. A Tale of Two Kitchens explores the ways in which a restaurant can serve as a place of both dignity and community.
What/If (Netflix, May 24) - From Revenge creator Mike Kelley, What/If stars Renée Zellweger as ultimate game player, Anne Montgomery. When Anne presents a young, cash-strapped couple with an incredible opportunity, they have to decide what they're willing to risk for a chance to have it all.

But when Sasha, now a celebrity chef in Los Angeles, returns to her hometown of San Francisco to open a new restaurant, she runs into her old pal -- a happily complacent musician still living at home and working for his dad. Though the two are reluctant to reconnect, they soon find the old sparks — and maybe some new ones — are there.

Black Mirror: Season 5 (Netflix, June 5) - An anthology series that taps into our collective unease with the modern world, with each stand-alone episode a sharp, suspenseful tale exploring themes of contemporary techno-paranoia. Without questioning it, technology has transformed all aspects of our lives; in every home; on every desk; in every palm - a plasma screen; a monitor; a Smartphone – a Black Mirror reflecting our 21st Century existence back at us. The series is created and written by Charlie Brooker, and executive produced by Brooker and Annabel Jones.
3%: Season 3 (Netflix, June 7) - Caught between the elitist, humiliating Process to obtain a place in the Offshore and the endless scarcity of resources on the Continent, some ex-candidates decide to come up with a third way. But freedom has a price.
Beats (Netflix, June 19) - In this coming-of-age drama, a reclusive teenage musical prodigy (Khalil Everage) forms an unlikely friendship with a down-on-his-luck high school security guard (Anthony Anderson). United by their mutual love of hip hop, they try to free each other from the demons of their past and break into the city's music scene. Directed by Chris Robinson (ATL, The New Edition Story), Beats features Everage in his feature film debut and co-stars Uzo Aduba and Emayatzy Corinealdi. Beats is the ultimate ode to Chicago's South Side, and its long history of creating music that forms the city's beating heart.
Das Boot (Hulu, June 17) - During the Autumn of 1942, in occupied France, U-612 is now ready for its maiden voyage, preparing to head into the increasingly brutal warfare with its young crewmen, including the new captain, Klaus Hoffmann.

Their personalities are pushed to the limit as tensions rise and loyalties begin to shatter.
Under Pressure: 9k (MotorTrend, May 16) - An innovative, short-form series with a unique style and structure that focuses on the import vehicle customization and performance work of Southern California-based car shop, 9K Racing. The 9K Racing team, staffed by co-owner Joey Grande, co-owner Felicia Bang, fabricator Greg Leone, and technician and aero specialist Jesse Budano, push the boundaries of aftermarket performance work while opening a portal into the culture and community of the import car tuning world.
Strange Angel: Season 2 (CBS All Access, June 13) - In season two, the U.S. is fully engaged in World War II, transforming Jack’s rocketry work into a lucrative business and further entrenching him in the military-industrial complex.
