I don't watch films or programmes on repeat anymore but I used to as a child. I would watch Mary Poppins, The Sound of Music or Grease every day for weeks.
I don't watch much TV at all now, but I like Disney movies and documentaries about farming, gardening and the outdoors.

Wall to wall Bob Ross and David Attenborough programmes every time, especially when I'm feeling anxious and overloaded. Like warm comfort blankets.
I also enjoyed the "slow TV" shown on BBC4 like the journey of the Sami people and their reindeer. Plus lots of scenic driver view train journeys on YouTube. My OH's special interest is trains (he's finally in the system for an autism diagnosis) and we watch these together to relax. Cat loves them too
Often vintage kids TV programmes to remind me of simpler times. Oliver Postgate's voice makes me feel like I'm 5 years old again.
I've loads of box sets I haven't watched for ages as I don't seem to have the time any more. Mainly sci-fi and fantasy, again more retro.
I always make time for Call The Midwife

The original Ghostbusters is my favourite film, and I can quote entire chunks of it verbatim. I could not tell you how often I have watched it (have worn out at least one DVD, though).
I also like travel programmes (I find Joanna Lumley and Michael Palin particularly soothing) and anything featuring heavy engineering (trains, bridges, large structures etc).
Also certain cookery shows (especially Rick Stein), but I loathe ANYTHING competitive, so GBBO / MasterChef etc (except The Professionals, I like the skill) can get in the sea.
The Repair Shop also brings me a lot of joy, but I don't think I'm alone in that, either from an ND / NT perspective.
