                            [body] => The best streaming services in 2022 By Henry T. Casey published 2 January 22 Our picks for the best streaming services and cable alternatives for those considering cord cutting (Image credit: Tom's Guide) The best streaming services will help you stream great content without having to pay for cable. HBO Max continues to pump out top-notch content; Netflix is still a force to be reckoned with; and Amazon Prime Video has a hit with Wheel of Time. Paramount Plus doesn't have a seat at the table yet, but more content like the highly watched South Park: Post Covid special could get it there.And that's not to mention the live TV entries in our best streaming services list, which help you cut the cord. The best streaming services bill you on a month-to-month basis (though they offer annual deals), which give you the flexibility to cancel and resubscribe as you see fit, and we've got options that offer extensive customization and lots of live sports.Also with the new year upon us check out my guide to cutting the cord in 2022 — this is my top pick to kill cable.The best streaming devices for cord-cuttersOur best Netflix shows list will tell you what to binge nextThese services are just one half of the streaming equation, though. As the cable box slowly withers away, it's being replaced by smart TVs and the best streaming devices, which include Rokus and Chromecasts.And by testing the best streaming services and devices side-by-side, we figure out the best way to build the ultimate streaming setup with the best selection of content and live channels.What are the best streaming services?The best streaming service overall was Netflix, but HBO Max spent the last year in the driver's seat by being a great alternative to the movies. Most recently, Matrix Resurrections has taken over our personal home theaters. And while Netflix has dominated the chatter with titles like Squid Game, its movies don't always have the ability to drive the conversation in the same way.Not all of us are cancelling our Netflix accounts, though, as the big red streaming machine. You season 3 is a hit, proven by its ability to knock Squid Game off the top of the Netlfix charts. Locke & Key season 3 is right behind. Netflix has also had most of the standard features that competitors took years to realize mattered. and it's enough content that you've got plenty of reasons to sign up.Sling TV is one of the best streaming services for live TV thanks to its customizability and relatively inexpensive price. While it got a price bump to $35 (from $30) in January, that's still just $30 less than the likes of YouTube TV and Hulu with Live TV. But its new app design isn't impressing everyone. Fubo TV may be as expensive, but its wide array of sports content helps it stand out. YouTube TV has also had a bit of trouble as of late but now that Roku and YouTube made nice, both YouTube and YouTube TV are back on Roku.The best streaming services now. (Image credit: Tom's Guide)1. HBO Max. The best streaming service around is the home box office. SpecificationsStarting price: $9.99 per month with adsSimultaneous streams: 3Live TV: NoExclusive originals: YesPlatforms and devices: Amazon Fire, Roku, Android, Android TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, PlayStation 4, Macs and PCs, Samsung Smart TV, Xbox One, TiVoReasons to buy+Award-winning original programming+Top-tier movies+Original news programmingReasons to avoid-Pricey-Content phases out frequentlyHBO Max has everything HBO had, and then some. Both HBO and HBO Max pack current-run shows including Insecure, as well as completed seasons of Westworld, Curb Your Enthusiasm and Veep. But for $14.99 per month (or $9.99 with ads, and no big Warner movies), HBO Max adds a lot more to be a compelling competitor to Netflix. Big highlights include Wonder Woman 1984 and The Flight Attendant with Kaley Cuoco. There's also Friends, the Studio Ghibli library and original shows like Made for Love.  HBO Max has found a second life, though, as Warner Brothers Pictures' destination for its biggest movies. The likes of James Gunn's The Suicide Squad (which will get an HBO Max spinoff show called The Peacemaker), Dune, Godzilla vs Kong and Space Jam 2 are delivering serious reasons to sign up. Check out our guide to the best HBO Max shows and movies to see what it's offering. The only downsides with HBO Max have been its relatively higher price than most, those weird (now fixed) Apple TV bugs and that Warner movies won't launch on Day 1 in 2022. Check our our full HBO Max review.(Image credit: Netflix)2. Netflix. Still one of the best streaming services, but looking for its next hit. SpecificationsStarting price: $9 per monthSimultaneous streams: 1-4Live TV: NoExclusive originals: YesPlatforms and devices: Android, iOS, web browers, Apple TV, Chromecast, Fire TV, Nvidia Shield, Roku, Smart TVs, PS4, Xbox, set top boxes, Reasons to buy+Excellent selection+Optimized interface+Good recommendation systemReasons to avoid-More expensive than other services-Titles come and go frequentlyThe great-granddaddy in the market remains the best streaming service. As you probably know, Netflix provides unlimited streaming of TV shows, movies, comedy specials (check out Bo Burnham's Inside) and original programming (we need The Witcher and Stranger Things back now) for one monthly subscription fee. Netflix is constantly adding and taking away movies, so you'll want to check our our what's new on Netflix guide to see what's coming soon, and what you should watch before it's gone. Recently, it's been easy to see that Netflix is inching away from its original business model of distributing other studios' films and shows, in favor of these above originals. Still, though, we see frequent additions of licensed shows, such as Hannibal, Moesha and Community, making Netflix the home for those looking to catch up on beloved shows they missed the first time around. Our Netflix hidden gems guide shows how it's also got a great library of fantastic shows and movies that have somehow gone under the radar for many audiences. The only thing we don't love about Netflix is the big list of Netflix's canceled shows.(Image credit: Tom's Guide)3. Disney Plus. The best streaming service for families. SpecificationsStarting price: $8 per monthSimultaneous streams: 4Live TV: NoExclusive originals: YesPlatforms and devices: Amazon Fire TV and Fire tablets, Roku, Chromecast, iOS, iPadOS, Android, Android TV, Apple TV, Xbox, PlayStation 4, Android-based Sony Smart TVs, Chromebooks, Samsung and LG devicesReasons to buy+Reasonable price+Lots of beloved content+UHD resolution optionsReasons to avoid-Odd gaps in content lineupDisney Plus is a dominant player in the category, and why wouldn't it be? Disney controls a frankly frightening number of properties, from Marvel, to Star Wars, to Disney's own animated canon, to The Simpsons (all 30 seasons, and counting). At its normal price of $8 per month, it's among the cheaper of the best streaming services out there, and a lot of the content is available in 4K resolution with HDR color palettes, too. And right now, a massive Black Friday is knocking Disney Plus down to $1.99 a month!Oh, and in big news, Disney Plus is also being turned into a PPV service, or at least the company is testing the waters. Disney's live-action Mulan cost $30 from Sept. 4 until its December 2020 free release, and, thankfully, they're doing the same with Black Widow. The Mandalorian season 2 and WandaVision got rave reviews, and Loki is the service's biggest hit yet. Fans of Disney, Marvel, Pixar and/or Star Wars have no choice but to subscribe, which makes Disney Plus one of the best streaming services. Read our full Disney Plus review.(Image credit: Hulu; Shutterstock)4. Hulu. The best streaming service for cord-cutters. SpecificationsStarting price: $7 per month starting Oct. 8Simultaneous streams: 2Live TV: Requires $65 per month Live TV packageExclusive originals: YesPlatforms and devices: Android, Android TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, Echo Show, Fire Tablets, Fire TV, iPhones and iPads, LG TV (select models), Nintendo Switch, Mac and PC, PlayStation 3 (no live programming), PlayStation 4, Roku, Samsung TV (select models), VIZIO SmartCast TVs, Xbox, Xfinity Flex & X1Reasons to buy+Great selection of current TV+Inexpensive+Quality original programmingReasons to avoid-Frequent commercials-Inconsistent selections from older TV seasonsIf you want to keep current with the latest TV shows but don't feel like investing in a cable subscription or an HD antenna, Hulu is the best streaming service for you. This service provides access to most major network shows (aside from CBS' programs) and a handful of cable shows the day after they air. It also lets subscribers access a show's current season — or often all of the program's seasons. And while it's still affordable, its first price bump in years (going up $1 to $7 per month on Oct. 8) isn't exactly welcome news.In addition, the service hosts a number of original shows (including joint ventures with the BBC, like The Wrong Mans and season 4 of The Thick of It), a selection of offbeat movies and a surprising amount of classic anime series. Recent Hulu hits include Vacation Friends, an adult comedy staring John Cena and Lil Rel Howery. Even with a paid subscription, you have to sit through commercials, but far fewer than if you watched the same shows on cable. Hulu's live TV streaming option is also a solid aspect of its overall package, and that will let you watch CBS too.Check out our full Hulu with Live TV review.(Image credit: Sling TV)5. Sling TV. The best live TV streaming service. SpecificationsStarting price: $35 per month ($30 for existing)Simultaneous streams: 1-4Live TV: YesExclusive originals: NoPlatforms and devices: Fire TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, Roku, iPhone and iPad, web browsers, Android, Android TV, Xbox, Samsung Smart TVs, LG Smart TVs and VIZIO Smart TVsReasons to buy+Much cheaper than cable+Wide breadth of content+No contract requiredReasons to avoid-Limited on-demand content-Gets expensive very fast with optional packagesIf you like the idea of a cable subscription but feel it's just too expensive and offers more content than you want, Sling TV might provide a happy medium for you. On paper, Sling sounds a lot like a traditional cable service: Pay a monthly subscription fee in exchange for about 30 real-time channels. But there's no contract and no set-top box rental fee. Sling is especially handy for sports fans, as it offers a variety of ESPN channels — and this alone is worth the price for some. Other popular networks, like NBC, BBC America, CNN, Cartoon Network, TBS and the Food Network, sweeten the deal. Check out our Sling TV guide to packages, channels and more. While most of the popular streaming services start at around $65, Sling stands out with its $35 per month starting price. Read our full Sling TV review.(Image credit: BigTunaOnline/Shutterstock)6. Amazon Prime Video. The best streaming service you're already paying for. SpecificationsStarting price: $119 per yearSimultaneous streams: 3Live TV: NoExclusive originals: YesPlatforms and devices: Fire TV, Fire tablet, iPhone, iPad, Chromecast, Xbox, PlayStation 4, Smart TVs, Blu-ray players, Apple TV, Roku, Xfinity X1Reasons to buy+Wide content selection+Included with other Prime benefits+Good original showsReasons to avoid-Not available on some platforms-A la carte content costs extraFor those who do most of their shopping online, Amazon Prime is a no-brainer. For $119 per year, you get free two-day shipping on your purchases, a free Kindle book each month, and unlimited access to both Amazon Music and Amazon Prime Video. Like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video is a veritable buffet of movies, television and original programming (the best Amazon shows range from The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, The Man in the High Castle, Bosch and Jack Ryan). Amazon Prime Video's biggest hit is The Boys, which grew its audience tremendously in season 2, and already has its own spinoff announced.Thanks to a deal with Viacom — which controls Comedy Central, MTV and Nickelodeon — Amazon Prime arguably is the best streaming service when it comes to comedy and children's programming. The service also offers unlimited access to an extensive collection from HBO's back catalog of classics such as The Sopranos and The Wire. You can also rent or purchase movies through Amazon Prime Video, but it's an à la carte service.

Peacock. The best streaming service with a free tier. SpecificationsStarting price: Free with adsSimultaneous streams: 3Live TV: Sports and WWEExclusive originals: YesPlatforms and devices: Fire TV, Fire tablet, iPhone, iPad, Chromecast, Xbox, PlayStation 4 & 5, Smart TVs, Apple TV, Roku, XfinityReasons to buy+Lots of classic TV shows+Free for Xfinity customers+Live WWE eventsReasons to avoid-Trending category a bit weak-Waiting for its must-see showsPeacock can finally be considered one of the best streaming services, as parent company NBCU finally got things to work with Amazon — and the service is on Fire TV. Yes, it took almost a year, but it's finally here. In that time, the Tokyo Olympics were significantly delayed — and while that's not Peacock's fault, it did take away one of the major reasons to consider the service. That said, we're worried that Peacock might not last long on the service. On Sunday, July 18, its streaming quality for WWE Money In The Bank fell apart tremendously, sparking tons of complaints online. This only lasted for a short while, though, and didn't interrupt any matches.Recently, though Peacock Original Girls5eva proved to be one of our favorite new shows, so much so that some staffers are paying to see the episodes that Peacock doesn't give away for free. Plus, Saved By The Bell reboot was much better than expected. Peacock also became the exclusive home of WWE pro wrestling live events (in the U.S. that is), which came with some bumps in the road about censoring out the company's history. (Image credit: FuboTV)8. Fubo TV. The best streaming service for sports afficionados. SpecificationsStarting price: $65 per monthSimultaneous streams: 2-3Live TV: YesExclusive originals: NoPlatforms and devices: Fire TV, Android, Android TV, Apple TV, Mac and PC web browsers, Chromecast, iPhone, iPad, Roku, Samsung Smart TVsReasons to buy+Huge number of channels+Niche sports networks+Some 4K contentReasons to avoid-More expensive than competitors-No ABC/ESPNFubo TV is one of the best streaming services for anyone looking to have access to live sports without an actual cable subscription. Fubo’s standard plan is $64.99 and offers 120-plus channels, including almost every major broadcast and cable network. And unlike other live TV streaming competitors like YouTube TV and Sling TV, Fubo has 4K streaming for select content on demand. The other knock against Fubo, besides its higher price, is the limited Cloud DVR storage. While Fubo’s channel lineup is the largest among the higher-priced streamers, they just got a major pair of gaps filled, including ABC and ESPN. By adding ESPN, Fubo makes itself the top streaming service for NFL fans, offering all the major broadcast networks, and the NFL Network too. In addition, the lineup includes popular networks like NBC, Fox, AMC, Food Network, MTV and Syfy, as well as a ton of niche sports channels. Its only big sports flaw is TNT, which is a must for NBA playoffs. Check our our full Fubo TV review.(Image credit: Sony; Shutterstock)9. Crackle. One of the best free streaming services. SpecificationsStarting price: FreeSimultaneous streams: N/ALive TV: NoExclusive originals: YesPlatforms and devices: Chromecast, Fire TV, Apple TV, web browsers, Roku, Xbox, Android, Android TV, iPhone and iPad, LG TVs, Samsung Smart TVs, PlayStation 4, Vizio TVsReasons to buy+Free+Amusing content+Good variety of videosReasons to avoid-Lots of commercials-Videos rotate very frequentlyIf you yearn for the halcyon days of cheesy action movies and anime on afternoon cable, Crackle will take you back in time at no cost. The Sony-owned platform broadcasts movies, TV shows and original programming on a rotating basis. There's no subscription or à la carte fee, although you do have to sit through a fair amount of commercials. While the programming is not usually blockbuster material, it's stuff you've heard of — think Total Recall rather than The Terminator, or Pitch Black rather than Riddick. Some of the original shows are good, too.Crackle originals include Snatch, an adaptation of the Guy Ritchie film, which stars Rupert Grint (yes, Ron Weasley himself). Adam Brody starred in StartUp, Keegan-Michael Key did voice work in the animated Supermansion, and even Chad Michael Murray showed up for CH:OS:EN. There's even Rob Riggle's Ski Master Academy, which bears resemblance to what would happen if you made a real life show out of Archer.How to choose the best streaming services for you. The good news is that you don't need to limit yourself to just one. It's all about picking the number of services that's right for your budget. And to that matter, all depends on the content you want to consume. While Netflix has a diverse array of content, it's not appealing to any specific audience — which means it's probably a service that most people have. While Netflix is pivoting more to original shows and movies with each passing week, it's still constantly adding licensed movies and shows. That means it's not only the place you'll re-watch The Good Place, but it's also got its own hits like Glow and Love Is Blind.Alternatively, do not sleep on HBO Max. Not only does the service get top-tier movies, but it's continually getting some of the latest and greatest and most prestigious TV shows, such as Watchmen and The Outsider.How we test streaming services. Testing streaming services is both serious work and good fun. When we test the quality of these platforms, we use them on multiple devices, including game consoles, web browsers and mobile devices. You'd be surprised at how differently Sling TV can look between a Roku, the Apple TV box and Chrome. We then compare the services based around the number of simultaneous streams they allow, if they throw in 4K streaming for free (or charge extra), and what other special features they allow. We also keep a strong eye on the new channels coming to each service, with articles such as our Sling Orange vs Blue face-off.And as pricing constantly changes (not in the right way, most of the time), we have to rethink how each competitor sits in the landscape. Sling, for example, has stayed near the low-end of the field, even though it too has gone up over time.We also spend a fair amount of time keeping up with the latest entrants into the streaming wars. A newer live TV streaming service is Philo TV, which costs just $25 a month for 59 channels. One of the biggest new names in streaming is NBCU's Peacock. Its strategy is simple: free ad-supported content you love, but the debate over NBC Peacock Free vs Premium might be an easy question depending on how July's nation-wide launch goes. Peacock has The Office, SNL and much more, plus it's the exclusive home for many Premier League soccer games and the WWE Network.HBO Max arrived with the WarnerMedia library (including Friends), but its biggest feature is that it will get huge blockbuster movies on the same day they arrive in theaters. This started with Wonder Woman 1984. While Apple TV Plus hasn't risen to the ranks of the best streaming services, it's still got Ted Lasso, one of the best shows of the last year (if not the very best).Best streaming devicesBest Roku devicesSmart TVs: Everything you need to know Henry T.

Reply JaxChampion Netflix is NOT more expensive for those who have more than one TV. I happen to have 4 in my large family. For this I pay $20.00 a month for Netflix. On Hulu I would be paying $32.00 for the same level of service. Also, Amazon prime is sharable as well with my family so Hulu is the most expensive option not Netflix. Reply mwaldrep4571 Now with new HDCP 2.2 requirements and HDMI 2.0 requirements, you can't watch HD or UHD streaming unless all hardware meets that standard with Amazon Prime. I also heard that Netflix is starting that also. The only service that appears to still offer HD is Hulu. Unless you make good money and can afford to purchase a New HDTV that meets requirements and if you want to stream via PC or MAC you have to buy a new PC or buy a new video card that meets that standard you are not able to stream at HD or UHD quality. Oh, and Apple doesn't have a mac that meets those standards yet. Not even the Mac Pro. Reply guganye think of another "Cons" for most of the online streaming services: available only within USA! Reply rlndsz lol so Hulu has "Subpar movie selection" and Netflix has "Excellent selection". You got that backward, unless you mean the number of titles. Netflix selection of movies however large it is, 80% of it are pure trash. On Hulu side you have superior quality movies and also the whole Criterion collection, with excellent titles, nothing comes near that on Netflix side. Reply Vault101 Marshall Honorof, You missed one - VUDU allows you to purchase and rent .Keeping a large library of movies and TV seasons available for viewing. the downside to them is that they use ports that certain firewalls will block. Check them out, I would love to get your feedback. Reply Justin_87 Playstation Vue is available on Amazon Fire TV, as well as Playstation. Also, the prices are $29.99 for Access Slim (55+ channels), $34.99 for Core Slim (70+ channels), and $44.99 for Elite Slim (100+ channels). I live in Austin and it is available here, so I'm not sure why you are misquoting this stuff. If you actually wrote and published this article on May 4th, then you source of info is bad, because these have been the prices well before May 4th and included many more markets. Reply gordokc77 Hulu is nothing but crap all they do is send you to other sites so you're paying $8 to $10 a month for what to be sent to a website you could have went to anyway if you want to stream something you need to get on a good site like Showbox are YouTube rest of them are no good HBO is okay but they want so much money and they don't even play dirty movies Reply Chris_C_K Hulu is jammed packed with adverts! They just don't get the whole pay for streaming paradigm. Reply View All 41 Comments Show more comments

The streaming boom has ballooned platforms like Netflix to billion-dollar valuations and given them the chance to produce tons of shows and movies. Others have followed its success. New platforms that cater to various tastes – film buffs, TV series addicts, and even anime enthusiasts – are still cropping up almost monthly.With the growth of new services, cord-cutting has become a lot more complicated. That’s why we’ve created this guide that contains all the info you need on the topic. We’ll look at the best streaming services in different categories and free, new, and small available options. We’ll also discuss the best streaming devices and whether you need a VPN for Netflix and other services. Let’s dive in. What is the best video streaming service?Every video streaming service has its pros and cons, so it’s impossible to name one as the outright winner. For example, some are better for those who love TV shows, while others are better for movie buffs. With that in mind, we’ve picked the best streaming service by category, making it easier for you to decide which one to go for, depending on your taste. We also included a few alternatives in each category, just to give you more options. You may find the same choice in multiple categories since some are great at more than one thing. Best originals: Netflix Best TV shows: Hulu Best movies: HBO Max Best live TV: YouTube TV Best family: Disney Plus Best sports: ESPN Plus Best value: Amazon Prime Video Best documentary: Smithsonian Channel Plus Editor’s note: We’ll be updating this list of the best streaming services regularly as new ones launch. See also: The best streaming shows on Netflix, Prime Video, Disney Plus, and more Netflix: Best streaming service for original content. Edgar Cervantes / Android AuthorityNetflix is the king of original programming, no doubt about it. The company has invested heavily in both films and series for years, and there’s something for almost any genre.Some of the more popular Netflix originals include The Witcher, which tells the story of Geralt of Rivia as he navigates the Continent slaying monsters. There is also BoJack Horseman, which is an animated story about a talking horse, and Ozark, which sees Jason Bateman move to Missouri to launder money and escape drug cartels. There are plenty of others available, which you can check out in our post linked below. Read next: The best Netflix originals you can watchDespite being best known for its originals, Netflix also has several great shows and movies on offer that aren’t exclusive. This makes it one of the best streaming services overall, as you’ll always find something to watch. Netflix$8.99 at Netflix Price: $8.99 -- $17.99 per month Streaming quality: Up to 4K Simultaneous streams: 1 -- 4 Free trial: No Also good for: Movies and TV shows Alternatives to consider. Netflix may be the best option for original programming, but it’s not the only one. Check out the two alternatives we recommend below. Amazon Prime Video: Amazon’s library of original movies and shows isn’t as extensive as Netflix’s, but the selection is still impressive. There’s a lot of award-winning content to choose from, including the superhero show The Boys, the police show Bosch, the thrilling Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan starring John Krasinski, and the extremely funny The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. It’s also a great place to look for low-budget flicks like Velocipastor. HBO Max: HBO’s original programming is one of the best ones out there, thanks to TV shows like Game of Thrones, The Wire, Last Week Tonight, and many others. The service also has exclusive rights to the popular sitcom Friends, previously only available on Netflix.

Edgar Cervantes / Android AuthorityIf TV shows are your thing, Hulu is the streaming service for you. You have plenty of great content to choose from, including Bob’s Burgers, The Good Doctor, and Empire. Many older shows are available, like Senfeld and How I Met Your Mother, just to name a few. You can check out more Hulu shows in our dedicated post at the link.The great thing about Hulu is that it owns the rights to next-day streaming of new shows from ABC, NBC, Fox, Comcast, and Disney. Netflix, for example, has an entirely different strategy, as it usually releases an entire season of a specific show at once.In addition to a great selection of shows, Hulu has a few great originals available as well, with the best ones being The Handmaid’s Tale and Only Murders In The Building. The service also offers live TV streaming for those who want it. Hulu$6.99 at Hulu Price: $6.99 -- $74.99 per month Streaming quality: Up to 4K Simultaneous streams: 2 -- unlimited Free trial: 30 days Also good for: Kids’ shows and live TV Alternatives to consider. A lot of streaming services include TV shows, but some are better than others. If Hulu isn’t what you’re looking for, check out the two alternatives we recommend below. Paramount Plus: This streaming service was previously known as CBS All Access and offers CBS programming on-demand, including great old and new shows like Twin Peaks, The Good Fight, Star Trek: Picard, Young Sheldon, and many others. The service also gives you access to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and The Late Late Show with James Corden. Showtime: You’ll find a bunch of great shows on Showtime, including one of my favorite ones of all time — Dexter. Other highlights include Billions, Homeland, The Borgias, and the hilarious Episodes starring Matt LeBlanc. The selection of shows isn’t massive, but much of what’s there is of excellent quality. HBO Max: Best streaming service for movies. Edgar Cervantes / Android AuthorityIf you’re a movie buff, HBO Max should be your first choice. The service doesn’t have as many movies as a few of its rivals, but there are more than enough of them available to keep you entertained for a while. Also, keep in mind that quality trumps quantity every time.Whether you’re looking for old or new movies, HBO Max has you covered. The service includes content like the Lord of the Rings films, many DC Comics shows and films, and even the classic The Wizard of Oz. Check out more great HBO Max movies at the link.HBO Max isn’t all about movies, though. It also has a great selection of popular TV shows as well as a few great documentaries. HBO Max$9.99 at HBO Max Price: $14.99 per month Streaming quality: Up to 1080p Simultaneous streams: 3 Free trial: No Also good for: Original programming Alternatives to consider. More or less, every video streaming service has a movie selection, but some are better than others in this area. In addition to HBO Max, we recommend the two services for movie buffs: Amazon Prime Video and Netflix. Amazon Prime Video: There’s a decent selection of great movies on Prime Video, although there are loads of those you should never watch as well. Regardless of your genre of choice, you should find several good movies on the service. The ones we like include Farewell, arguably one of the most prominent Oscar snubs in recent years. Then there’s The Handmaiden that’s loosely based on the Victorian crime novel Fingersmith and many others. Netflix: Best known for its originals, Netflix also has loads of great movies. We wouldn’t expect anything else from what’s arguably the best video streaming service overall. The movie selection includes gems like Bird Box starring Sandra Bullock and originals like The Irishman and Army of the Dead. YouTube TV: Best streaming service for live TV. YouTube TV gives you access to more than 85 live TV channels, including local ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox stations. It includes unlimited cloud DVR storage, so you can record your favorite shows while out and about.A subscription allows for three simultaneous streams and six accounts per household. It costs $64.99 per month, but you can try it out for free for 14 days before parting with your money. You can also cancel anytime, just like with all the other streaming services on this list. Related: Here are all the available YouTube TV channelsYouTube TV supports add-ons, which gives you access to additional content for a fee. The selection of add-ons includes HBO Max, NBA League Pass, Cinemax, Starz, and many others. YouTube TV$64.99 at YouTube TV Price: $64.99 per month Streaming quality: Up to 4K Simultaneous streams: 3 Free trial: 14 days Also good for: Sports Alternatives to consider. The number of live TV services available isn’t huge, but you still have a few great options. If YouTube TV isn’t for you for whatever reason, the two alternatives we recommend are Sling TV and Hulu Live TV. Sling TV: If you’re on a budget, Sling TV is for you. It starts at just $35, making it roughly $35 cheaper than YouTube TV. However, you only get 32 or 45 channels — depending on your plan — instead of the 85+ offered by its main rival. The cloud DVR storage is limited to just 10 hours. Hulu Plus Live TV: This streaming service gives you access to more than 65 live TV channels as well as Hulu’s entire streaming library. You can stream on two screens simultaneously, although you can get unlimited streams for an additional monthly fee. Pricing starts at $65 for the basic plan, with plenty of add-ons and other services available to increase the price.

There are loads of animated feature films available for kids, some shows teenagers will enjoy, and a lot of content for adults. So whether you’re into Mickey Mouse, Hannah Montana, or Star Wars, Disney Plus has you covered.The service has many exclusive shows and movies you won’t find on any of its competitors. These include High School Musical, Hamilton, Loki, Wandavision, and many others. You can check out the master list of movies and TV shows on Disney Plus at the link to learn more. See also: Disney Plus vs NetflixDisney Plus is a relatively new streaming service and is quite affordable. It’s worth subscribing as well if you have kids, regardless of their age. Just keep in mind that the service doesn’t have a free trial available at the moment. Disney Plus bundle$13.99 at Disney Price: $7.99 per month Streaming quality: Up to 4K Simultaneous streams: 4 Free trial: No Also good for: TV shows Alternatives to consider. If Disney Plus isn’t available in your location or you just don’t like it, there are a few alternatives to consider. The two listed below aren’t quite as family-focused as Disney Plus, but they do offer plenty of animated shows as well as other content. Hulu: You get many 90s family comedies with Hulu, including Family Matters and Step by Step. Hulu also offers a bunch of other great binge-worthy TV series like Futurama, as well as cartoons like The Powerpuff Girls and Rugrats. Of course, there is plenty of action and other content available for adults to watch when the little ones go to sleep. Boomerang: This streaming service is geared more towards kids than adults, although I can think of worse things than spending my nights watching Tom and Jerry. Boomerang has tons of cartoons, including classics like Scooby-Doo, The Jetsons, Looney Tunes, Popeye, and many others. It will set you back $4.99 per month. ESPN Plus: Best streaming service for sports. If you’re a sports fan, subscribing to ESPN Plus is the way to go. The video streaming service offers a great variety of sports content, including NHL and MLB games, college sports, soccer, and much more. It also has exclusive rights to UFC pay-per-view events.ESPN Plus also has a bunch of originals like The Boardroom with KD, Peyton’s Places with Peyton Manning, NBA Rooks with Zion Williamson, and more. With that in mind, you should always have something interesting to watch on ESPN Plus.One of the most significant drawbacks is that ESPN Plus doesn’t include either ESPN’s Monday Night Football or its live NBA coverage. So this video streaming platform is not a proper replacement for all ESPN channels, but it still offers plenty of great content at a reasonable price. ESPN Plus$6.99 at ESPN Plus Price: $6.99 per month Streaming quality: Up to 1080p Simultaneous streams: 3 Free trial: No Also good for: Sports-based original programing Alternatives to consider. FuboTV: This live TV sports-focused streaming service offers up to 197 channels, including regional sports networks. However, you also access various news and entertainment channels, including ABC, CBS, and FOX. There are 500 hours of cloud DVR space included in every plan, so you can record the games you don’t want to miss. Regardless of which sport you’re into, FuboTV likely has content for you. NBA League Pass: If you’re only into basketball, NBA League Pass is an excellent streaming service. It lets you watch NBA games live or on-demand. You can also get access to NBA TV so that you can check out popular shows like Inside the NBA with Charles Barkley, Shaquille O’Neal, and the rest of the gang. There are different plans to choose from depending on whether you want to watch all games or just the ones played by your favorite team. Amazon Prime Video: Best value streaming service. This category isn’t for the cheapest streaming service out there but for the one that gives you the most bang for your buck. Without a doubt, that title goes to Amazon Prime Video, but only if you regularly shop on Amazon.Prime Video is part of Amazon’s Prime subscription that gives you access to a ton of services. In addition to Prime Video with great originals and plenty of great movies and shows, you also get free delivery on most orders, access to the Prime Music streaming service, unlimited photo storage, and more. Read next: The best original series on Amazon Prime VideoAll of this will set you back just $12.99 per month or $119 per year if you pay up-front. You can get Prime Video as a standalone service for $8.99, but we think the full Prime membership is a much better value. Amazon Prime Video$12.99 at Amazon Prime Video Price: $12.99 per month Streaming quality: Up to 4K Simultaneous streams: 3 Free trial: 30 days Also good for: Originals and movies Alternatives to consider. Disney Plus Bundle: The bundle includes a subscription to Disney Plus, Hulu (ad-supported plan), and ESPN Plus. This gives you access to a ton of content for the whole family — movies, shows, cartoons, sports, and more. The Disney Plus bundle will set you back $13.99 per month, saving you $6 compared to signing up for all three services individually. Hulu (with ads): If you want to subscribe to a popular streaming service on the cheap, Hulu has you covered. Its basic plan containing ads will set you back just $6.99 per month and gives you access to the same content as the company’s more expensive plan that doesn’t include advertising. Sure, commercials suck, but that’s the price you have to pay to save money. CuriosityStream: Best streaming service for documentaries. CuriosityStream has thousands of exclusive and licensed documentaries on different topics, including history, science, and technology. It was founded by John Hendricks, who also founded the popular Discovery Channel cable TV network back in the day.There are plenty of great documentaries to watch on the service. These include The History of Home that looks back at how shelters for humans have evolved, The Story of Maths that examines the history of mathematics, and many others.The service is cheap, at least compared to Netflix and HBO Max, and you can try it free for seven days. However, the free trial is only available if you sign up for the service via a channel on Amazon Prime Video or the Roku Channel. You won’t get a free trial when signing up via CuriosityStream’s website. CuriosityStream$2.99 at CuriosityStream Price: $2.99-$9.99 a month, or $19.99-$64.99 a year Streaming quality: Up to 4K Simultaneous streams: Unlimited Free trial: Seven days Also good for: Really just documentaries Alternatives to consider. More or less, every popular streaming service has a selection of documentaries, although some offer more in this area than others. In addition to CuriosityStream, the two alternatives we recommend are the Smithsonian Channel Plus and Netflix, both of which you can learn more about below. Smithsonian Channel Plus: You get tons of entertaining documentaries with this service, including Mighty Trains, Epic Warrior Women, and many others. It’s relatively affordable at $4.99 per month and supports 4K streaming. There’s also a seven-day free trial available.

Additionally, it has a large selection of documentaries, ensuring you’ll always find something to watch.

It’s relatively new, but Discovery Plus has an extensive library of content thanks to its relationships with Animal Planet, HGTV, and History Channel.

If you don’t want to pay a monthly subscription for a video streaming service, you’ll be happy to hear there are a few great ones available that are free. One of them is Peacock, which I’ve already mentioned in the previous section, while six other great options are listed below. They don’t offer as much content as the industry giants, but there’s still plenty to watch.Crackle: This free streaming service includes cult classics, critically acclaimed Hollywood films, and popular TV shows. These include the hilarious 3rd Rock From The Sun, among many others. It is ad-supported, meaning you’ll usually have to sit through a 30-second commercial before your movie or show begins, followed by up to three additional ads for shows and nine for films longer than an hour and a half. Sign up for Crackle IMDBtv: Owned by Amazon, IMDBtv has an impressive library of movies. There are a lot of great TV shows available as well, including Mad Men, White Collar, and Psych, just to name a few. It’s an excellent service, but it’s not available globally. Sign up for IMDBtv Tubi: Arguably one of the highest quality free movie streaming services available, Tubi will not disappoint you. There’s content available in all the major genres, including action, comedy, and romance, among others. There’s even a category named “Not on Netflix” that includes movies not even the most popular video streaming service has. There are more than 20,000 movies and TV shows on the platform, which are ad-supported. Sign up for Tubi Pluto TV: Pluto TV has a section where you can stream content on-demand, but it also features more than 250 channels that you can tune in to watch at previously scheduled times. Naturally, that comes with a few downsides, but if you are looking for a free replacement for your existing cable service, Pluto TV has you covered. You can watch live news coverage from several outlets. There are also channels for sports fans, kids, and Spanish-language audiences. The best part is that you don’t even need to create an account to get started. Sign up for Pluto TV Vudu: Best known as a digital marketplace for buying or renting movies and TV shows, Vudu also gives you access to a lot of free content. There are more than 10,000 movies and TV episodes available that are supported by ads. A lot of them are older, but they are still worth watching. They include gems like Roseanne, Hell’s Kitchen, Scary Movie, and many others. You don’t have to spend a dime using Vudu, but you need to make an account to access its content. Sign up for Vudu Roku Channel: Yes, the folks that also make Roku streaming sticks, and the Roku OS that may be installed on your smart TV, also have their own free streaming service. You get lots of free classic movies and TV shows, but the service is also adding more original content, including shows from the now shut down Quibi service. Sign up for Roku Channel These are the six best free video streaming services we recommend, in addition to the already mentioned Peacock. There are a few others worth your time, all of which you can check out in our dedicated post here. Do you need a VPN for streaming?Edgar Cervantes / Android AuthorityVideo streaming services offer different content in different regions due to licensing rights. For example, Netflix offers a much more extensive library of movies and shows to users in the US than those based in most other countries. The difference in the amount of content available is massive in some cases.Here’s where a VPN comes in. By using it, you can get access to a lot more content on streaming services like Netflix. All you have to do is connect online using a US VPN, which will trick Netflix’s website into thinking you’re based in the US. The result is that you’ll get to watch the same movies and shows as users who live in the US.Another example is a streaming service that’s not available in your country. For example, if you live outside the US and want to access a service like IMDBtv that’s only available in the states, you’ll have to use a US VPN. A VPN is helpful in many cases, although it’s not required for streaming. Also read: What are the best VPNs for Netflix?While a VPN for streaming does come in handy, there are a few drawbacks you have to know about. The first one is that it costs money. There are free ones available, but we generally don’t recommend them, especially when streaming. Then there’s the fact that using a VPN takes its toll on your internet speed, which may or may not be a big deal depending on how significant the drop is.VPNs’ biggest drawback for streaming is that services like Netflix and others don’t like it when you use them. They are working hard on blocking as many of them as possible, so a VPN that works today for your streaming service of choice may not work tomorrow.In case the drawbacks don’t turn you away, we recommend one of the three VPNs below. All of them are packed with features, have a no-logging policy, and offer incredible speeds. ExpressVPN NordVPN Surfshark What is the best streaming device for my needs?David Imel / Android AuthorityYou can watch Netflix and other streaming services on your smartphone, tablet, PC, laptop, smart TV, and Chromebook. But if you want to watch it on your regular TV, you’ll need a streaming device.There are many available, the best of which you can check out in our post here. However, the three we want to highlight here are the Google Chromecast with Google TV, Amazon Fire TV Stick, and Roku Streaming Stick Plus.Google’s Chromecast with Google TV allows you to stream 4K content with its Android TV-based operating system. The Google TV UI brings together content from other streaming services on one home screen. Get the Google Chromecast with Google TV Amazon’s Fire TV Stick has an interface and doesn’t need to be paired with a phone to work. It comes with a simplified remote control, making it easy to use. It also works with VPNs that have an app for the platform, like NordVPN. This device is perfect for those who are subscribed to Prime Video. Get the Amazon Fire TV Stick The Roku Streaming Stick 4K has more in common with the Fire TV Stick than the Chromecast, as it has a UI and doesn’t need to be paired with a phone to work. It supports 4K streaming and has a more advanced Wi-Fi receiver than the cheaper Roku models. Get the Roku Streaming Stick 4K Alternatively, you can also use a gaming console like the PlayStation 5 or 4, Xbox One, or Xbox Series X/S. Frequently asked questions. Edgar Cervantes / Android AuthorityQ: Why are video streaming services so popular? A: Because — unlike cable TV — they allow you to watch what you want when you want it and where you want it. There are also no ads in many cases, although this depends on the service.Q: Which streaming service has the most subscribers? A: Netflix is the most significant premium video streaming service in the world, boasting around 216 million subscribers globally.Q: Do streaming services offer the same content in all regions? A: Depends on the service, but the answer is usually no. For example, Netflix and Amazon Prime Video offer different movies and shows in other countries due to licensing rights. Users in the US typically have the largest selection of content available.Q: Are all streaming services available globally? A: Streaming services aren’t available in every country globally, although Netflix, Prime Video, and HBO Max are present in loads of countries across North America, Europe, Asia, and Africa. Others, like Hulu, for example, are only available in the US.Q: Do I need to sign a contract to use a streaming service like Netflix? A: No, you don’t. You can cancel your subscription to any streaming service whenever you want. You’re not locked into a contract for a specific period like with mobile carriers.Q: When I cancel a subscription to a streaming service, do I lose access to it right away? A: No, not usually. You lose access at the end of your billing cycle. So if you signed up on August 15th and you cancel your subscription on September 2nd, you’ll still have access to the service until September 15th.Q: Can I watch Netflix and other video streaming services on a TV? A: It’s possible, but you may need additional hardware. If you have an Android smart TV, you can download the service you use and start watching it. You can do the same if you have a gaming console and the app is available for it. Alternatively, you can use a streaming device like Chromecast, Roku, or Fire TV Stick. More coverage.

That's where services like Amazon Prime Video, Now and Disney Plus come into the frame. In this guide, we'll explain which ones you need, and which ones you can skip.The greatest streaming services balance fantastic content with a decent user experience, as well as additional features like 4K options and offline downloads. Below, you'll find comparisons between the different streamers on that basis, and we'll discuss everything from user interface to picture quality and which shows/movies you can watch on each service. While the UK hasn't become as overwhelmed with streaming services as the US (yet, anyway), we've still got a lot to choose from here, and you don't need to be subscribed to all of them to have a dazzling array of shows and movies to watch.It's worth mentioning that Sky Q – which we collectively think is the best TV subscription package in the UK – still requires a satellite dish, so it's not in this list, which only includes streaming services that work solely with an internet connection. These are the best UK streaming services.Best Netflix showsBest Netflix moviesBest Sky and Now TV showsBest TV streaming services in the UK. NetflixBBC iPlayerNowAmazon Prime VideoDisney PlusAll 4Apple TV PlusBritbox(Image credit: Netflix)1. Netflix. The king of streaming services. SpecificationsCompatible devices:: Android, Apple, Roku, PlayStation, Xbox, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, Smart TVs, YouView, BT TV Box, Now TV, Sky Q, web browsersFree trial: N/ASimultaneous streams: 1-4Reasons to buy+So much original content+Offers 4K+App experience is fantasticReasons to avoid-Many originals you'll never watch-Additional cost for 4K-Free trial no longer availableNetflix is the king of streaming services in every single way: the content available to stream is fantastic, the app experience is the best around and it offers 4K resolution in its highest, most expensive tier. If you can only have one paid streaming service in your life, you won't regret making it Netflix.We'd argue that Netflix UK is actually in better shape than its US counterpart, these days, because it hasn't been hit by the same onrush of new services that have siphoned away some of its most compelling content. That means alongside the best Netflix shows like The Witcher and Stranger Things, you can enjoy series like Brooklyn Nine Nine, Friends, The Sinner or It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. With an onslaught of original content released every week, too, you'll always find something new to watch.In recent years, too, Netflix has made better and better original movies. Oscar nominees like Marriage Story, The Irishman and Roma show the service is committed to theatrical-level movies – although obviously not all of its original films are great. Quantity over quality applies a little bit, here.The basic tier is a very reasonable £5.99 per month for standard definition (480p) and one stream at a time, while the £9.99 standard tier will suit most households, with full HD and two simultaneous streams allowed. Finally, the £13.99 Premium Plan offers Ultra HD streams for content available in 4K, and allows four devices to stream Netflix at once. The cost is lean for just how much stuff you get to watch.Try Netflix here.(Image credit: Carl Court/Getty Images)2. BBC iPlayer. A fantastic free option. SpecificationsCompatible devices: Android, Apple, Roku, PlayStation, Xbox, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, Smart TVs, YouView, BT TV Box, Now TV, Sky Q, web browsersFree trial: N/ASimultaneous streams: N/AReasons to buy+Surprisingly great US TV options+Fantastic revolving film selection+Great British shows, old and newReasons to avoid-Logging in with your TV licence details is annoying-Movies aren't around for longFree for anyone who pays a £159 yearly TV licence fee – a subject that's become more and more politicised in the UK in recent years – BBC iPlayer is an incredibly high-value offering, and the app experience is world class. The BBC has revised its licensing agreements to offer new BBC programming for more than just a month, too, with many shows available for around a year after airing. That means it's better now than it's ever been. The BBC has a long-standing distribution deal with US cable network FX, too, meaning shows like What We Do In The Shadows, Mayans MC and Pose are available to stream on a long-term basis. Its range of classic programming is surprisingly extensive, too, and the service offers a regular rotation of great films to enjoy, though you usually only get a month to watch them. If you really don't like the idea of monthly subscription fees, there's enough to watch on iPlayer every day without you ever needing to spend a penny.The BBC has trialled on-demand content in 4K, too, with some shows made available to watch in Ultra HD, like Black Narcissus and His Dark Materials. iPlayer won't always have the hottest new shows, but you can depend on it for more than just high-quality British entertainment. The app, available on most major platforms, is great, with profiles, saved progress and a child-friendly content option. Try BBC iPlayer here. (Image credit: Future)3. Now. The home of HBO and Sky shows. SpecificationsCompatible devices: Android, Apple, Roku, PlayStation, Xbox, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, Smart TVs, YouView, BT TV Box, Now TV, web browsersFree trial: 7 daysSimultaneous streams: 2 (3 with boost)Reasons to buy+The best TV shows from the US+Flexibility in passes+Features live TVReasons to avoid-UI isn't the greatest-New US shows don't always stick around-720p streaming resolution as standardSky does have an existing streaming app for subscribers that's available on pretty much any device you can name, but Now (previously known as Now TV) is its no-commitment streaming offering. Depending on the pass you get, too, you can watch Sky channels live as part of your subscription.Now passes are divided across subject areas, each with their own monthly subscription fee: Sky Cinema (£11.99 per month), Kids Pass (£3.99 per month), Entertainment (£9.99 per month), and Hayu (£4.99 a month for all the reality TV nonsense you can handle). Sky Cinema covers movies, while the Entertainment pass covers TV shows.The default streaming resolution is a not-so-great 720p, and an extra £3 a month (under the name Boost) unlocks 1080p streaming and the ability to stream on three devices rather than two. That's a weird thing to charge extra for, if you ask us. Annoyingly, the current sign-up page adds the Boost element as part of your free trial, though you can remove it in the basket. While the app experience could be better, the programming is top quality. That's because Sky has overall deals with the likes of HBO and Showtime, and is spending all-time high amounts on its own original programming, like Chernobyl, Brassic and Gangs of London.The downside is that its US content can be more seasonal, with HBO shows vanishing from the service after a few months. Still, Now TV always tells you when a show expires with plenty of notice so you can play your viewing accordingly. Shows that disappear tend to return down the line, too, so you get another chance to watch them.In terms of movies, too, Sky feels like it's had a slower year during the pandemic due to the delay of theatrical releases – while Netflix hasn't ceased with the great original movies. That said, recent releases like Promising Young Woman, Zack Snyder's Justice League and Unhinged reiterate the strong value of the service. The two tiers for 720p and 1080p is a little weird, but £9.99 isn't bad at all for the well-maintained archive of HBO content here. A lot of the best TV shows are found on Sky and Now TV, and that won't change any time soon.Try Now here. (Image credit: Amazon)4. Amazon Prime Video. Netflix's main rival has a lot to offer. SpecificationsCompatible devices: Android, Apple, Roku, PlayStation, Xbox, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, Smart TVs, YouView, BT TV Box, web browsersFree trial: 30 daysSimultaneous streams: 2Reasons to buy+Originals get better and better+Loads of great US imports+Part of an Amazon Prime membershipReasons to avoid-UI is pretty messy-Encourages you to spend extra-Not all channels are worthwhileAmazon Prime Video is one of the main perks of being a Prime member (which costs £7.99 per month), along with priority delivery. It's a great streaming service in terms of content, but one big thing counts against Amazon Prime Video: its overly busy UI. The app feels almost deliberately obtuse, and Prime Video gives slightly too much prominence to paid rentals compared to its freely-streaming content.On the more positive side, the single monthly fee gets you access to 4K streams, clearly marked as 4K UHD in the app. Outside of Amazon Originals, though, don't expect a vast selection of 4K content to watch right now.Amazon Prime Video UK has a terrific range of content. If you like older US TV shows, like The Office, South Park or The X-Files, this is the best streaming service for these kinds of series in the UK. Its originals are a muddled bunch, but with the likes of The Boys, The Expanse and The Marvelous Mrs Maisel, there's been plenty that's worth watching from the last few years. You've also got the option to spend more on Amazon Prime Channels, some of which are worthwhile (like BFI Player, Shudder or Starzplay), and others of which are more of an acquired taste.Amazon UK has also been busy acquiring original films for the platform, too, like the Borat sequel and Coming 2 America. With some UI tweaks, though, Amazon Prime would stand up well next to the world's biggest streaming service. It doesn't offer quite as much original content as Netflix, but in the UK, it's definitely one of the best streaming services around.Try Amazon Prime Video here.(Image credit: Disney)5. Disney Plus. A family-friendly service that just got an upgrade. SpecificationsCompatible devices: Android, Apple, Roku, PlayStation, Xbox, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, Smart TVs, Now TV, Sky Q, web browsersFree trial: N/ASimultaneous streams: 4Reasons to buy+Amazing suite of Disney animated classics+One price tier for 4K+Now features adult-friendly contentReasons to avoid-Needs more must-watch originalsDisney Plus has been around in the UK for a little while, now, and it's just started to kick into high gear. For a long time, the service's main selling point was Star Wars original The Mandalorian – but 2021 is the year Marvel series have finally begun hitting the platform, including WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Loki. Disney Plus has at least 10 TV shows coming from Marvel in total, and another 10+ from the Star Wars universe. That's a lot to look forward to. In the UK, too, Disney Plus launched Star in February 2021 – this addition to the service has doubled the amount of content available to stream, adding adult shows and movies to the platform, and includes new originals like Big Sky and Solar Opposites, with many more to come. And that's not even mentioning the core part of the offering. The increased price point of £7.99 a month (or £79.90 for a year) unlocks a rich archive of Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars films – available to stream in 4K and HDR, in many cases, for no extra cost. In addition, you have a complete 31-season archive of The Simpsons, which is a real treat. This is a great service, that might climb higher up this list if the terrific content keeps coming. Sign up to Disney Plus here. (Image credit: Future)6. All 4. Another great free streaming option. SpecificationsCompatible devices: Android, Apple, Roku, PlayStation, Xbox, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, Smart TVs, YouView, BT TV Box, Sky Q, web browsersFree trial: N/ASimultaneous streams: N/AReasons to buy+A surprising range of shows to watch+Downloadable programming+Films available, tooReasons to avoid-Ads may test your patienceChannel 4's free, ad-supported (though you can remove ads for £3.99 per month) streaming option is impressive and incredibly varied. As well as classic homegrown series like The Inbetweeners, Stath Lets Flats, Peep Show and Friday Night Dinner, All 4 has a payload of US boxsets to stream. That includes every episode of classic US sitcoms like Seinfeld and Malcolm in the Middle at the time of writing, as well as all seasons of ER. In addition to this, All 4 has three other great show categories worth mentioning – the service features anime in its library, as well as numerous shows from the Adult Swim network in the US and Vice's series of documentaries.You can watch live TV through the All4 app, which is available on most major platforms, and you can download some shows to go. It's a terrific free option, that combined with iPlayer, means you've got plenty to stream without spending anything. Try All4 here. (Image credit: Apple)7. Apple TV Plus. The electronics giant hasn't dazzled us yet. SpecificationsCompatible devices: Apple, Smart TVs, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, web browsers, PlayStation, Xbox, Chromecast with Google TVFree trial: 7 daysSimultaneous streams: 6Reasons to buy+Expensive originals+Reasonable price+Nice app experienceReasons to avoid-Shallow catalogue-Few must-watch showsApple's streaming service made a big splash at its November 2019 launch with high-budget originals like The Morning Show with Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston, as well as See starring Jason Momoa. But it also arrived without any older stuff to watch, which means it's a lesser offering compared to the other services in this list. That may change soon, though, as one report says Apple is looking to acquire older shows and movies for its platform.In the meantime, Apple TV's library is slowly growing, even if we wouldn't necessarily recommend you pay for it every month right now. Check out our list of the best Apple TV shows here. New shows are rolling out on a regular basis, and buying a newer Apple device gets you a year of the service for free. Series like Ted Lasso, Mythic Quest and The Morning Show make it well worth a look. Over time, this could be a frontrunner. Apple has the money to make it happen. In its favor, too, combined with an Apple TV 4K device, you can watch shows in Ultra HD with HDR. The app is now available on games consoles and the newest version of Chromecast, too. Try Apple TV Plus here. (Image credit: EE)8. BritBox. For British TV fans who can't get enough. SpecificationsCompatible devices: Amazon Fire TV, Windows, Smart TVs, Apple, Android, YouView, web browsers, BT TV BoxFree trial: 30 daysSimultaneous streams: 5Reasons to buy+Focused on one subject and serves it well+Will have some shows you like+Cheap monthly feeReasons to avoid-Limited remit-Originals could be better-Not available on consolesIf you love British TV but somehow feel your needs aren't being serviced by the older stuff found on iPlayer and All4, Britbox is another option. It hosts the sort of content we're traditionally used to seeing on services like Netflix and iPlayer, with the offering bringing together old and new shows from UK broadcasters BBC, ITV and Channel 4. If you want a complete archive of classic Doctor Who episodes, for example, this is the way to go. BritBox has more British boxsets than anyone else, including harder-to-stream stuff like Thunderbirds. While competition is theoretically good in the world of streaming services, we're yet to be convinced this is always the case. More specialist services offer greater focus and depth, yes, but if the price per month to get it all is always going up, is it worth the trade-off? In the case of BritBox, we think you can live without it. Paying an extra £5.99 a month (or £59.99 for a year) for this kind of programming isn't that compelling. Great British programming can be found on All4 and iPlayer already, though admittedly this offers a deeper selection overall. In terms of exclusives, you'll find a few on BritBox, like the Australian drama Lambs of God, the revival of ancient sketch show Spitting Image and new drama The Beast Must Die.Try BritBox here.Best TV shows 2020 Samuel Roberts Samuel is a PR Manager at game developer Frontier.

Here are the best we've tried.FacebookTwitterEmailSave StorySave this story for later.It has never been easier to access countless hours of the latest and greatest TV shows and best movies from the comfort of your couch.

Please also consider subscribing to WIREDWhat to Consider. How to Choose a Streaming ServiceFeatures, content, and limitations differ from one streaming service to the next, so take some time to consider what you care about.Content: Work out what TV series, movies, documentaries, and other kinds of content are most important to you. If you have favorite shows or franchises, check which services carry them. All streaming services have some exclusive content, but there’s also a lot of overlap, and the lineup of shows and movies can change. You can browse or search at ReelGood or JustWatch to find a complete content guide for all the top streaming services.Quality: Different streaming services support various levels of video quality and audio standards and sometimes charge more for better-quality streams. If you have a 4K TV and surround sound system in your home, then you will want the content to take full advantage. But if your TV maxes out at HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels), there is no point in paying for 4K. Bear in mind that higher-quality streams require higher internet speeds. For example, while a 5 Mbps (megabits per second) connection is enough for an HD stream, Netflix recommends at least 25 Mbps for 4K content.Features: Think about the features you need and compatibility with your most-used devices. If you are sharing your streaming service with other people, you will want to create separate profiles. Families may want parental controls to block unsuitable content for younger kids. Most streaming services limit the number of simultaneous streams you can have and some charge more to increase this limit. If you plan to watch offline, check into the download policy.Budget: Free trials are very common, so take advantage of them. Most streaming services offer a discount on the monthly subscription fee if you pay for a year upfront. Some mix in the option to rent or buy content along with what you get as part of your subscription, which may not be ideal if you prefer to fix a monthly budget. Don’t be afraid to sign up to a service for a single month to watch a show you like and then cancel the subscription. If you don’t intend to watch tons of content, it may make sense to rotate your services and just catch the shows you simply can't miss.Photograph: NetflixFor Everyone. NetflixWith a healthy mix of movies, TV series, documentaries, kids’ shows, and more, there is something for everyone on Netflix. While some popular series and movies rotate on and off the service, exclusives like Squid Game, Bridgerton, and Stranger Things attract new viewers and persuade subscribers to stay. Functionally, Netflix is also the best streaming service—with a very accessible app available on virtually every platform. There are no ads, video quality is high with lots of 4K content, and performance is reliable. We also appreciate the slick cutting of title and credit sequences during binging sessions. Unfortunately, the basic tier is limited to a single stream in standard definition, and you have to pay double to get 4K and HDR.Cost: $9 for SD and one stream, $14 for HD and two streams, $18 for 4K HDR and four streams$9 at NetflixPhotograph: HBOFor Discerning Viewers. HBO MaxPacked with critically acclaimed shows and blockbuster movies, HBO Max has some of the best content you can find anywhere. The exclusive content is unsurpassed, with hits old and new—from The Wire and Game of Thrones to Succession and Lovecraft Country. The movie library is impressive, too, with classics like Citizen Kane and new releases like Dune. The service works on most platforms, has an attractive and intuitive interface, and allows for three simultaneous streams. Unfortunately, at the time of writing, 4K and HDR support are limited to a handful of movies, and everything else is 1080p at best. It’s also relatively expensive, and the ad-supported tier has annoying restrictions (no in-theater movie releases, no downloads).Cost: $10 a month for ad-supported, $15 a month for ad-free$10 at HBO MaxPhotograph: DisneyFor Families. Disney+For family-friendly content, there is no better service than Disney+. Aside from Disney’s movies and shows, the service is home to the Star Wars, Marvel, and Pixar universes. A mix of content that includes Disney classics like Ratatouille and Beauty and the Beast sits alongside exciting new shows like The Mandalorian and Wandavision, not to mention every epsiode of The Simpsons. The complete lack of R-rated content on the US version of Disney+ makes it a safe space for kids and teens. It has no commercials, 4K and HDR content are included standard, the app works well on many platforms, and you can stream simultaneously on up to four devices. You can also get Disney+ as part of a bundle with Hulu and ESPN+ for $14 a month.Cost: $8 a month or $80 a year$8 at DisneyPhotograph: HuluFor Cord Cutters. HuluWith an enormous choice of new and classic TV shows, an optional live TV component, and the ability to bundle in additional channels and services, Hulu is an ideal service for new cord-cutters who are used to cable.Big shows from networks like ABC, Fox, and FX rub shoulders with Hulu Originals, so you’ll find shows like Lost, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The Handmaid’s Tale, and Castle Rock. The basic tier is ad-supported, 4K content is limited, and Live TV is an expensive addition. You must pay extra if you want to simultaneously stream on more than two devices. You can also get Hulu as part of a bundle with Disney+ and ESPN+ for $14 a month.Cost: $7 a month for ad-supported, $13 a month for ad-free, $65 for ad-supported and Live TV, $71 for ad-free and Live TV$7 at HuluPhotograph: AmazonFor Amazon Subscribers. Prime VideoThere is a decent depth of movies and TV series on Prime Video nowadays, and the service also offers content to rent or buy. There are even a few compelling exclusives, like The Expanse, Catastrophe, The Boys, and Goliath. To further tempt you, Amazon offers a relatively large amount of 4K and HDR content, and it’s all available as part of the basic subscription, which also covers simultaneous streaming on up to three devices. Prime Video works on most platforms, but the recommendation system is not very sophisticated, so it can be time-consuming to unearth gems. Included as one of the benefits of Amazon Prime membership, it’s part of a compelling package, but you can also get Prime Video as a stand-alone service and add individual channels for an additional monthly fee.Cost: $9 a month, or included as part of Amazon Prime at $13 a month or $119 a year$9 at Amazon (Prime Video)$13 at Amazon (Prime)Photograph: ViacomCBSFor Classic TV. Paramount+As the newest streaming service with a plus sign on the end of its name, Paramount+ is not winning any originality awards. It boasts a sizable library of classic TV shows and movies, with a light smattering of exclusives, including iCarly, The Good Fight, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Fargo, and Trainspotting. Paramount+ also offers new Paramount movies—like the upcoming Mission: Impossible 7—just 45 days after they hit theaters. For now, this service will satisfy fans of Star Trek more than anyone else. There are five original Star Trek shows actively airing now and throughout the next year, and likely many more to come.Support for 4K and HDR is sparse, but the service works on most devices, and you can have up to three simultaneous streams. The basic plan has commercials and does not allow you to download content to watch offline. Upgrading kills the ads, enables downloads, and throws your local CBS station into the mix.Cost: $5 a month or $50 a year for ad-supported, $10 a month or $100 a year for ad-free with live CBS$5 at Paramount+Photograph: AppleFor Apple Fans. Apple TV+With a modest content library that’s very light on movies, Apple TV+ has some great documentaries and original series—we like Ted Lasso, Foundation, and The Morning Show. There's also a massive library of TV shows and movies for rental or purchase, and you have the option of adding channels for an additional monthly fee. You can even get three months free with the purchase of a new Apple device.There are no commercials, and support for 4K and HDR is standard. You can download content for offline viewing and have up to six simultaneous streams. Content discovery is not great, although there isn’t a great deal to browse through anyway. A relatively low price mitigates some of the limitations of Apple TV+. But it is an even better deal if you opt for the Apple One bundle at $15 per month, as it also includes Apple Music, Apple Arcade, and 50GB of iCloud storage.Cost: $5 a month or $50 a year$5 at ApplePhotograph: NBCFor a Bit of Everything. PeacockThe only option here with a free tier, the basic Peacock service includes shows like Parks and Recreation, The Office, and Battlestar Galactica and movies like The Big Lebowski, all with commercials. Pay for Premium, and you unlock more content, with episodes from NBC shows available the day after they air, original series, and new movies like Halloween Kills, as well as sports coverage that includes Sunday Night Football. But you must spring for Premium Plus to ditch ads and enable mobile downloads for offline viewing. Sadly, there is currently no support for 4K or HDR content on any tier.There have been a few comedy highlights like Rutherford Falls and Girls5eva, but Peacock is currently riding hard on its back catalog.Cost: Free limited ad-supported, $5 a month or $50 a year for ad-supported unlimited, $10 a month or $100 a year for ad-free unlimited$5 at PeacockPhotograph: Curiosity StreamFor Specific Interests. More Streaming ServicesThere are several specialist streaming services and channels now that cater to specific interests. While they don’t have the breadth and depth needed to serve as your main streaming service, they may be worth adding on top or as part of a package.For Documentary FansCuriosity Stream offers thousands of high-quality documentary films and TV shows, many of them originals, for a very reasonable $3 a month or $20 a year. However, if you want 4K content, the price jumps to $10 a month or $70 a year.For Animation LoversVRV might be the ultimate streaming service for anime and cartoon fans. It currently includes Crunchyroll, Cartoon Hangover, Mondo Media, Rooster Teeth, and VRV Select. The service costs $10 a month, but the channel lineup seems to change quite frequently.For Reality TV FansDiscovery+ is packed with familiar lifestyle shows, documentaries, and original reality TV shows, covering cooking, travel, home improvements, history, true crime, and more. The ad-supported tier is $5 a month, but you can pay $7 a month to go ad-free.For Sports FansESPN+ is a sports streaming service that shows some NHL and MLB games, college sports, and soccer, alongside commentary shows. It doesn’t have live NBA or NFL games, but sports are underrepresented in on-demand streaming, so fans might feel the $7 a month or $70 a year price is worth paying. ESPN+ is better value if taken as part of a bundle with Disney+ and Hulu for $14 a month.For British TV FansBritbox claims to have more British boxsets than any other service. It has lots of old and new British TV shows and a few films produced by the UK’s public service broadcasters, including the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, and Channel 5. It costs $9 a month or $90 a year.Simon Hill has been writing about tech for more than a decade.

There's more great TV to watch than ever, but deciding which ones are worth your time and money can be daunting. Your choices likely depend on which original shows and movies you want, how important a back catalog of older streaming TV shows is to you, whether you need to consider kids, roommates or sports fans, and of course your budget. Some of these services offer cheaper options (like Peacock's free tier), while others come essentially free as part of a bundle (like ESPN Plus in the Disney Bundle). Read more: Best streaming service dealsLooking for recommendations for holiday gifts and your own home? That's where this list of the best streaming service options comes in. We've reviewed each of these streaming services individually, and assigned numeric ratings based on content, app design and features and overall value. Certainly, some personal preference regarding content mix influences our decisions, so note that if you love a specific show or style of show, you may have a different favorite.With that in mind, here's the list, ranked in order starting with the best streaming services first. Best streaming service overall. Netflix. Angela Lang/CNET There's a reason why Netflix has become shorthand for streaming in general. The veteran service, which launched its DVD-by-mail rentals in 1998, has evolved into the top-tier streaming service that's a must-have in 2021. When big originals like Squid Game, Cobra Kai, or Stranger Things drop, they grab the attention of millions of viewers along with critical praise and awards, giving us the closest thing to watercooler conversations we have nowadays. While Netflix has lost a couple of major back catalog channel titles to other streamers this past year (specifically TV series favorites The Office to Peacock and Friends to HBO Max), the streamer still offers a wide variety of familiar network shows and more original series, films, documentaries and specials than any of its competitors. New shows and movies arrive each week, and 70 new original movies arrived on the Netflix platform this year alone. Starting at $9 a month, its price is in the middle of the TV service pack, but for the variety you get (and no commercials ever), it's worth it. Read our Netflix review.   $9 at Netflix Best for kids and kids at heart. Disney Plus. Angela Lang/CNET Disney Plus is a phenomenon and Netflix's closest competitor for good reason. The streaming platform launched two years ago and has already amassed more than 118 million subscribers. It's the only place where you can stream the vast majority of the Disney and Pixar libraries, along with every Star Wars movie, Marvel films and new original TV shows, National Geographic content and 31 seasons of The Simpsons. While The Mandalorian was its only breakout series at first, its slate of Marvel shows WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Loki have since drawn millions of viewers. Marvel's Eternals will stream exclusively on Disney Plus in January 2022, where it will join Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Documentaries such as Peter Jackson's The Beatles: Get Back are winning rave reviews. Plus, there's lots more Star Wars and Marvel original programming coming in the next few years. Even after the recent price hike to $8 a month, Disney Plus is still one of the least expensive ad-free streaming TV choices and a great value. We consider it a must-have if you have kids or are a fan of any of its other titles (and who isn't a fan of Baby Yoda?). Read our Disney Plus review.   $8 at Disney Plus Best value for your money. Hulu. Sarah Tew/CNET For $7 a month (with ads), Hulu is a perfect complement and counterpoint to Netflix. This channel lineup has a huge variety of familiar shows from networks like ABC, Fox and NBC that you can watch soon after they air (unlike on Netflix), as well as a growing catalog of its own critically acclaimed original series like The Handmaid's Tale and PEN15. If you have $7 per month to spare and don't mind trading a few ads for a wealth of TV options, Hulu is a no-brainer. You've also got the option to upgrade to a no-ads plan for $12 a month, or add on live TV streaming for $65 a month for a full cable replacement. Read our Hulu review.   $7 at Hulu Best value bundled with other services. Prime Video. Sarah Tew/CNET Prime Video features lots of ad-free, high-quality original shows and movies, an impressive back catalog of older favorites (and B-movies you haven't heard of) and NFL on Thursday nights. It lacks the catalogs of Netflix and Hulu, and the star power of Disney's streaming platform, and I found its menus more confusing since there's some paid content mixed in with free content. But for millions of Prime subscribers, the Prime Video channel is already included at no extra cost. If you're interested in checking out any of its originals like The Wheel of Time, The Expanse (or the upcoming Lord of the Rings prequel), or its large movie selection, it may even be worth paying the stand-alone $9 a month TV service fee (if you don't have Amazon Prime). Read our Amazon Prime Video review.   $9 at Amazon Best mix of old and new content. HBO Max. Sarah Tew/CNET HBO Max is a well-designed app full of popular TV shows and movies. It has HBO's entire catalog, along with favorites such as Friends, Rick and Morty, Sesame Street, the Lord of the Rings movies and almost every Studio Ghibli film. It's also the only streaming service to debut movies on the same day as theaters at no extra cost, including The Many Saints of Newark, The Matrix Resurrections, and King Richard. It's not Disney Plus, but HBO Max has a solid streaming collection for kids too, with the ability to control ratings on kids' profiles better than most other services. Where the service loses points is its price tag: At $15 a month, it's at the higher end of the streaming spectrum. However, a less expensive, ad-supported tier is now available, though it's only $5 cheaper, and you won't be able to stream the newest movies. In general, HBO Max is also a bit light on new originals, but we expect that to change over time. Series such as Gossip Girl, And Just Like That..., and The White Lotus have viewers excited for the platform's growing slate. Read our HBO Max review.   $15 at HBO Max Best for die-hard sports fans. ESPN Plus. Sarah Tew/CNET ESPN Plus is a great streaming service for the tried-and-true sports fans, especially those who follow the NHL, MLS and UFC. This is because ESPN Plus is the new home of all out-of-market National Hockey League games, while also offering out-of-market MLS soccer matches, along with those from other soccer leagues around the world. It hosts exclusive UFC matches and pay-per-view events, such as UFC Fight Night and championship bouts (for additional fees).Hockey and MLS fans who root for teams that aren't based where they currently live need ESPN's streaming service to watch their team's action. The service won't be of much use, however, to fans of the home teams. Local games are blacked out on ESPN Plus so you'll need access to your regional sports network through cable or a live TV streaming service in order to watch them. But there's good news for golf fans: ESPN Plus will livestream the PGA Tour in 2022 with more than 4,000 hours of exclusive footage. PGA Tour Live will provide coverage for more than 30 events from January through the fall. ESPN Plus doesn't show live NFL or NBA games, however, and while its vast library of original programming is impressive, it's difficult to navigate. While the $7 a month, $70 per year service is best suited for die-hard fans of the sports it covers well, more casual fans might find themselves with an ESPN Plus subscription anyway through the Disney Bundle, which also includes Hulu and Disney Plus for $14 total. Getting the bundle saves $7 a month over the cost of each individual service, so in essence, you get ESPN Plus for free. Read our ESPN Plus review.   $7 at ESPN Plus Best free streaming service. Peacock. Sarah Tew/CNET NBCUniversal's streaming service Peacock has one major advantage over its peers: It has a free, ad-supported tier with about 13,000 hours of shows, movies, news and live sports. You can upgrade to premium for $5 a month (with ads) or premium plus for $10 a month (with no ads) to unlock more content, including every season of fan favorites like the TV series The Office and Parks and Recreation, originals like Brave New World and The Real Housewives of Miami, popular series like Yellowstone as well as live Premier League soccer matches and WWE events. Upcoming moves for 2022 include new movie premieres 45 days after their theatrical releases.Peacock drops in the rankings due to its lack of mobile downloads for its non-premium plus tiers and 4K HDR streaming, which most of its competitors offer. But it doesn't hurt to try out the free version -- all you need to sign up is an email address. Read our Peacock review.   See at Peacock Best for nostalgic content. Paramount Plus. Sarah Tew/CNET Paramount Plus -- the streaming service formerly known as CBS All Access -- brings together live news and sports with on-demand shows and movies, including originals, leaning on parent company ViacomCBS' brands like popular channels CBS, MTV, BET, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon and Paramount Network, plus its Paramount Pictures movie studio. The service has a ton of content: 30,000 episodes of TV and 2,500 movies, plus 36 original series arriving this year, for either $6 a month (with ads) or $10 a month (ad-free). Two of its biggest draws from its CBS All Access days include the Star Trek catalog and new originals like Star Trek: Discovery and Picard, and the series The Good Fight. Upcoming originals include two Yellowstone spinoffs (though Yellowstone itself is on rival Peacock), a new Star Trek series and a series based on Halo, and new movies like Mission: Impossible 7 arriving 45 days after theaters. But right now, its main value lies in nostalgia: You can watch just about every old Nickelodeon show, Comedy Central stand-up special and popular series ranging from Frasier and Cheers to SpongeBob Squarepants and Young Sheldon. Additionally, Paramount Plus just launched its Live Channels feature which enables subscribers to watch curated content in special categories. Check out channels for Star Trek, All Day Drama, Paw Patrol, and more. Currently, new customers who sign up for Paramount Plus by Dec. 31 can try out the service for 30 days at no charge. Read our Paramount Plus review.   $5 at Paramount Plus Best for free trial access. Apple TV Plus. Sarah Tew/CNET At $5 a month, Apple TV Plus is the lowest-priced premium, ad-free streaming service available, with high-end features like 4K resolution, HDR and mobile downloads. However, it's also the only service on this list that includes only original content, and no back catalog of shows or movies to explore. While it now has more than 50 exclusive, big-budget original programming shows and movies, only a few have captured widespread attention (looking at you, Ted Lasso, The Morning Show, See, and Foundation). And that library is far smaller than any of the others on this list. The app is also confusing, since it's housed in the larger Apple TV app with other content. However, Apple TV Plus has one big advantage: There are a lot of ways to get it for free, at least for a while. If you're a degree-seeking college student, a new purchaser of an Apple device, or someone who subscribes to the Apple One bundle, you can snag a long-term free trial of Apple TV Plus. Read our Apple TV Plus review.   $5 at Apple What else do you need to know?Chances are you're already pretty familiar with most of the names on this list, but it's by no means comprehensive. There are plenty of other ways to stream, and hundreds of other choices out there. As you weigh your streaming choices, keep the following notes in mind.This list is ordered based on the numerical value I assigned to each streaming service in their individual review, which I determined by design (i.e. ease of use across different TV and mobile platforms), features (like 4K HDR, mobile downloads, recommendations, watch lists and number of streams), content (number of shows and quality of originals and back catalogs) and value (price compared to these other factors). Click through to the full reviews for more details.This list includes major on-demand streaming services only. It does not include live TV streaming services for cord-cutters (think Sling TV, YouTube TV, which offer live channels intended to replace cable), free streaming services like Tubi or Crackle or smaller, niche services like Crunchyroll or PBS Kids or regional sports networks.To watch any of the services on this list you'll need a solid internet connection, a compatible device (like a Roku, Amazon Fire TV or Apple TV, a smart TV, phone, tablet or computer) and a valid username and password. This best streaming service list will be updated periodically as new services become available and are reviewed, and as existing reviews are updated. Want more?

To help you choose the right one for you, we have selected the best streaming services available in the UK right now, together with prices and additional information. 9 There are several different streaming services available in the UK, and they all come with different programs and films. Some of them also offer extra features, like 4K streaming and offline downloads, and can be bundled up with broadband services. In addition, some streaming services require their own dongle or device to work, while others simply need an internet connection and internet-enabled smart devices (TV, smartphones or laptops.) Without further ado, here are the best streaming services available in the UK right now.

Amazon Prime Video. 9Prime Video is only one of the many benefits of an Amazon Prime subscriptionCredit: Amazon (AD) Fire TV Stick 4K Ultra HD, £49.99 on Amazon - buy here (AD) Amazon Prime + Video, £7.99 per month - buy here Prime Video is Amazon's take on online streaming services and is part of the wide array of services that come with a Prime subscription, including free delivery on many products, and more. In terms of the streaming service's quality, Prime Video thrives on a few, highly-anticipated original shows, including American Gods, The Grand Tour, and The Marvelous Mrs Maisel. Beyond those, Prime Video also allows you to add (for additional fees) subscriptions to a mix of demand content and traditional ‘live’ channels. You can view Prime Video content on any smart device, but if you fancy full Alexa integration and 4K capabilities, you can purchase the Fire TV Stick. (AD) Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Ultra HD, £24.99 - buy here 2. Disney+. 9Disney+ includes several Marvel and Pixar shows and filmsCredit: Disney Disney+, £7.99 per month - buy here It may be one of the youngest contenders in the streaming services' arena, but Disney+ has already made a name for itself. With a great family-friendly catalogue, a basic Disney+ subscription gives you access to four simultaneous streams and offline downloads. The streaming service does not offer much original content at the moment, but it encompasses films and TV shows from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic. Disney+ works on most web browsers, iOS and Android devices and the majority of smart TVs and dongles. The service currently costs £7.99 a month, but Disney also offers an annual payment option for £79.90 that will save you more than 15% on the monthly price. 3. Now TV. 9Now TV can be bundled up with a broadband subscription for maximum valueCredit: Getty NOW TV Box with 2 Month Sky Cinema Pass, £109.99 on Amazon - buy here NOW TV Entertainment & Cinema+ Boost Free Trial, £11.98 per month - buy here NOW TV offers up to 11 channels, depending on your chosen membership, and essentially provides access to some Sky channels without the need for a satellite dish. The service comes in five different flavours: Entertainment, Sky Cinema, Kids, and Hayu (giving you access to the latest reality shows from the US.) Now TV does not require a NOW TV Smart Box or Smart Stick to work, and after subscribing, you'll be able to use the service on any smart device. However, by purchasing a NOW TV Stick (powered by Roku), you will be able to pause and rewind live TV, as well as turn your regular TV into a smart one supporting additional streaming services. The basic price for the NOW TV Entertainment subscription is £9.99, which includes channels like Sky One, Comedy Central and HBO. 4. Apple TV+. 9The Apple TV streamer is not required to take advantage of Apple's streaming service, but it is one of the bestCredit: Getty (AD) Apple TV 4K (32GB), £169 on Amazon - buy here Apple TV+, £4.99 per month - buy here Apple TV+ launched towards the end of 2019 and aims to provide an ad-free service with high-quality original content. The service offers a few interesting shows, but its catalogue is still somewhat limited when compared with more established streaming service providers. It also costs less, however, and you can get a 7-day free trial, so if you absolutely love the whole catalogue, it could be the right option for you. An Apple TV box is not needed to watch Apple TV+, but the streaming device (especially the 4K version) is truly excellent, offering both HDR video and Dolby Atmos sound. 5. Hayu. 9Hayu is a streaming service designed for reality TV fansCredit: Getty Hayu, £4.99 per month - buy here Hayu is a strange beast in the world of online streaming services. The platform is specifically designed to provide access to US-based reality TV programs. Hayu offers a remarkable catalogue of more than 6,500 episodes from 250 reality TV shows, and enables access to new ones on the same day as the US. The service is available with a 30-day trial, then costs £4.99 when purchased from Hayu's website, but you can save £1 per month if you get Hayu as an add-on for NowTV or Amazon Prime Video. 6. Netflix. 9Netflix is still one of the best TV streaming services you can subscribe toCredit: Getty Netflix, £5.99 per month - buy here Being the most widely used streaming service in the western world, Netflix needs no introduction. The streaming service constantly produces a steady stream of original films and TV shows, together with expanding its catalogue by adding already existing content. The basic Netflix subscription in the UK costs £5.99 and offers video streaming at 480p, but you'll probably be better off paying £9.99 to upgrade your picture quality to full HD at 1080p. And if you have a 4K TV or screen, you can subscribe to Netflix Premium for £13.99, which allows up to four devices to view in 4K, as well as allowing programmes to be downloaded to mobile devices. 7. BritBox. 9BritBox is a streaming service focusing on British TV shows and created by the BBC and ITVCredit: Getty BritBox, £29.99 per year - buy here Created by the BBC and ITV, Britbox is a streaming service focusing exclusively on the most popular shows and movies from British TV. The service does not offer offline downloads or original content, but it's not supposed to. BritBox is essentially a catalogue of over 300 British comedies, dramas, and soap operas, and as such, it's very comprehensive. The streaming service is supported on most streaming devices and smart TVs and includes content from the BBC, Channel 4, Film4, ITV, and ViacomCBS. 8. Sky Q. 9Sky has the biggest catalogue of live channels on this list, but it requires a satellite dish to workCredit: Sky Sky basic package, £26 per month - buy here While Sky channels can be accessed via the internet if you have a subscription, the service still requires a satellite dish to function. If that is not an obstacle to you, Sky arguably offers one of the largest catalogues of channels on this list. The TV provider also counts over 200 original shows and highly customisable options for Sport, Entertainment, and Films. And if you get any Sky subscription, Netflix's basic offer is included in the price. Sky has also recently unveiled Glass, a TV subscription that does not require a satellite dish, and that will give you access to an actual TV set. For additional information about it and all the best Sky deals, you can have a look at our dedicated guide here. What is the best streaming service in the UK?  Netflix is the undisputed king of streaming services in the UK. According to recent data from Statista, a whopping 84% of Britons said they were using Netflix in the last quarter of 2020. Amazon Prime was second on the list, with 67% of respondents who said they were using it, followed by 62% who said BBC iPlayer was their first option. Only 26% said they were using Disney+, and a meagre 12% picked Now TV as their primary streaming service. How to choose the best streaming services for you. Price is of course a determining factor when picking the best streaming service for yourself, but that aside, the platform's catalogue is what you want to look at. If you are looking for a family-oriented streaming service, then there's no doubt Disney+ is the best one for you. If, on the other hand, you're in love with British TV shows, BrtiBox could be the best option for you. Generally speaking, if you are undecided, Netflix has the largest catalogue of TV shows and films, so you may find what you're looking for there. Which streaming service has Harry Potter? Regrettably, Harry Potter films are not available on Netflix UK (though they are in Netflix Portugal and Canada), or on any other service as part of your basic subscription. However, if you are a real Harry Potter fan and need to have access to the films at all times, they are available on Prime Video to purchase. Once added to your library, you'll be able to stream at any time. Are TV streaming services worth it?  Yes. Streaming services are generally cheaper than TV subscription services, and still offer a lot of value. It is ultimately up to you whether any of the above services satisfy your entertainment needs, but it is certain that more and more companies are investing in online streaming services. In addition, with streaming services, you can always mix and match, picking the ones with the content you like, without spending too much. How much are TV streaming services? The basic cost of most streaming services is between £5 and £7 per month. Some of them also offer options to watch on multiple screens or at a higher resolution for an extra price. For instance, a Netflix Premium subscription costs £13.99 and allows up to four devices to watch simultaneously in 4K, as well as including the ability to download programmes onto mobile devices.

How to Determine Which Streaming Platform Is Worth Your Money By Simona Tolcheva Published 2 days ago Share Share Tweet Email Netflix, Disney Plus, HBO Max, or Prime Video? Here, we'll discuss the important factors you need to consider before deciding on a streaming service. Signing up for a streaming service is a great way to consume content on your own time whenever it's convenient for you. You don't have to deal with trips to the movie theatre, and it comes out much more affordable. But how do you decide which streaming services are worth your money? There are so many streaming platforms available currently, and more seem to pop up weekly. Subscribing to all of them can become way too pricey, so here are a few things to consider before you decide on one. Free Trials Are Your Best Friend. Start a free trial if you're interested in signing up for a streaming service, but you're unsure if you'll actually enjoy and use it consistently. Free trials are an excellent way to get your first impressions and figure out whether the platform suits you or not. If you've set your sights on a particular platform, ensure that it does offer a free trial, and look into how long it lasts. Like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Hulu, some platforms give you a thirty-day test period. Others, like Disney+, only give seven days, and some don't even offer a free trial. HBO Max doesn't. Read More: Streaming‌ ‌Services‌ ‌That‌ ‌Offer‌ ‌Free‌ ‌Trials‌ When starting a trial, it's crucial to time it just right. For example, whenever a highly anticipated new release is about to drop. If you're itching to watch a new movie or show but unsure if you'd continue using the streaming service after, the free trial can help you make up your mind about it. Once you sign up, consume as much content as you can. Make sure you test out if the streaming service is right for you before you make a commitment. Also, remember to turn off automatic renewal so that your credit card doesn't get charged without your knowledge. Consider the Cost of the Streaming Service. Streaming services tend to keep their prices affordable, with most asking between $5 to $10 per month for a subscription. A budgetary problem may arise when you get more than one service, and the cost adds up. It's best to look into whether there are discounts for bulk payments. Sometimes there are student discounts and family plans you can take advantage of, and usually, the more extended plan you choose to subscribe for, the better the cost. For example, you can save roughly 15% on Disney+ if you opt for an annual subscription instead of paying monthly. Related: The Best Movie Streaming Services With a Student Discount Is the Streaming Service Worth It Long-Term? Maybe it sounds like a great idea to subscribe to a streaming service when you're interested in a show and must see it through. Realistically, though, if you're paying for a subscription for a platform and only consume a show or two on it, ask yourself: is it worth it? HBO Max has some pretty good shows: Succession and The White Lotus being recent hits, but is it worth the price tag for two titles? Especially since the service doesn't offer a free trial, and you'd have to commit to at least one monthly payment, possibly longer, since episodes get uploaded weekly. That leads to the next point. Try to figure out how frequently the platform delivers new content. Does it follow the binge-able Netflix template where shows drop in their entirety or the Disney+ model where you have to wait for weekly releases? Will that force you into paying for a service for several months so you can finish a complete season? Does the Streaming Platform Suit Your Tastes? Streaming services tend to avoid putting themselves in boxes when it comes to the content they offer. However, there are still specific differences you can note when comparing them. Disney+ heavily banks on Marvel and Star Wars movies and shows, with new ones popping up frequently. It's also an excellent service for kids' content, bursting with Disney and Pixar animations. Amazon Prime Video offers everything under the sun in terms of features. You can find pretty much any movie and show on it. However, not all of it comes free with your subscription. Most of the included content in Prime Video's media catalog comes from third parties. Though the platform does offer plenty of original content, you need to consider that you might get forced into paying extra for some of your chosen features. Netflix also offers a little bit of everything, and it continues to produce original content frequently. It has a variety of hit shows and movies that boast an impressive number of views. But the platform also delivers some pretty disappointing titles that seem like they were made for people who hate-watch and mock. Check out what each streaming service offers, and recognize whether it fits your viewing preferences. Don't pay for something that you know you won't enjoy. Does the Streaming Service Cover All the Bases? There are several key points to explore when deciding whether to subscribe to a particular service. First off, is the video quality of its media library up to par? Are there features in 4K, and how many? What's the point in investing in a good TV if the streaming service can't keep up? Is the platform intuitive and generally easy to navigate? How many devices does it support? Some services amp up the subscription price alongside the device count. And, perhaps even the most important question: does it offer the watch party feature? If it does allow watch parties, does the feature work well? Are people happy with it? Does it let you chat with your friends while viewing? Some steaming services that allow watch parties let you send emojis. Others sync the viewing experience and pause for everyone if one participant presses pause, but some don't do that. Cover all your bases and ensure what you're signing up for will be worth your time and money. Make an Informed Decision. Of course, it'd be great if you could get a subscription to all the available streaming services and enjoy all of the content they offer for an unlimited time. However, that can rack up the monthly cost that not everyone can afford. So, the best way to figure out which platforms are worth the subscription is to test them out as thoroughly as you can before committing. Making that decision will require you to put in some research. You have to devote time and effort to discover what each service offers, price points, content release dates, and so on. But all your work will be worth it. Should You Give a Streaming Service Gift Card to Someone? If you're looking for an easy present, a streaming service gift card might be just the right thing.

                            [body] => Which Streaming Service Do You Actually Want? Helping you navigate the many, many, many, many, many, many, many options out there. By Josef Adalian There are dozens of streaming services these days, and some of them are even pretty good. Illustration: by Martin Gee There are dozens of streaming services these days, and some of them are even pretty good. Illustration: by Martin Gee There are dozens of streaming services these days, and some of them are even pretty good. Illustration: by Martin Gee Finding something to watch on TV used to be as simple as turning on the set, flipping through a few dozen channels, and stopping when you stumbled upon something worth checking out. Even during the early days of streaming, you could count on finding most big shows and movies on one of the big three platforms (Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video) or the digital versions of the big premium cable networks (HBO Now, Showtime). But it’s not so simple anymore: Since late 2019, there’s been a barrage of new platform launches as big media companies scramble for position in the post-cable universe. Apple TV+ and Disney+ came online in November 2019, while Peacock has hit living rooms and commandeered all episodes of The Office. A supersize version of HBO called, appropriately enough, HBO Max made waves last year and then came Paramount+, a revamped and rebranded CBS All Access. All that on top of literally dozens of other smaller services and niche platforms for audiences with specialized tastes. Nobody ever said the streaming revolution would be cheap — or easy. The good news is that, unlike cable, almost all streaming services let you try out their product before you have to fully commit. A seven-day trial is usually the minimum sampling period, but as competition heats up, some platforms have been giving away an entire month of service. Still, even figuring out which streamers to check out takes some digging — and that’s where Vulture has your back. We’ve put together a master list of dozens of subscription-based video platforms covering a range of interests, from movies and general entertainment to sports and education. We’ve tried to find streamers serving all sorts of tastes and communities both narrow and broad. A few notes: We want this guide to help you decide how to spend your money, so we didn’t include any platform that was completely free or ad-supported (think Pluto or STIRR). Many services try to make themselves look a bit less expensive by setting their prices at, say, $6.99 instead of $7; we opted to round up to the next dollar when listing costs. And one pro tip: Your cellphone company might offer free or discounted service to a streamer (see: Sprint’s Hulu promotion or T-Mobile’s “Netflix on Us” offer), so check their websites, too. The Major Services . The Morning Show, available on Apple TV+. Photo: Apple Netflix . The everything store of original video entertainment is to streaming what Kleenex is to tissue: a brand so powerful it’s become synonymous with the category. Netflix spends billions each year making its own original scripted and unscripted series, dozens of stand-up comedy specials, and a yearly slate of theatrical-quality feature films bigger than any of the major movie studios. Basically, Netflix’s goal is to recreate a cable TV package in one place, offering enough highbrow and lowbrow programming to fill a couple dozen very different networks. Its library of older shows and movies has shrunk somewhat in recent years as Disney, NBCUniversal, and other competitors have reclaimed their intellectual property (translation: you can’t stream Friends or recent Marvel and Star Wars movies on Netflix anymore). But there’s still a decent-size collection of retro goodness, including Seinfeld, Monty Python’s Flying Circus, Star Trek, and Grey’s Anatomy. Cost: $9 per month/$14 per month HD/$18 4K and HDR Don't have Netflix? Sign up Amazon Prime Video . Though it doesn’t make nearly as many originals as Netflix, Amazon’s video service is no slouch when it comes to first-run fare: It usually premieres a couple of big tentpole comedies or dramas every month, from critical darlings (Fleabag, Modern Love) to crowd-pleasing hits (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Bosch, Jack Ryan). Amazon simulcasts some Thursday night football games, too, and is also rapidly beefing up its first-run movie slate. It also boasts a far deeper collection of acquired movies and TV shows than Netflix, particularly if you’re looking for stuff from the 1970s and ’80s. And for better or worse, Prime also combines its subscription offering with stuff from Amazon’s video download and rental store: As you’re browsing through movies and shows included with the service, you’ll also be shown titles you can buy or rent. Cost: $9 per month or included with an Amazon Prime subscription ($119 per year) Don't have Amazon Prime Video? Sign Up Apple TV+ . One of the few major streamers focused solely on original content, you won’t find a large library of older shows with hundreds of episodes to binge. Instead, Apple is looking to build its own collection of high-quality scripted dramas and comedies. The Morning Show, starring Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston, is the platform’s signature series, but other early standouts include the comedic Dickinson, the anthology Little America, a reboot of Amazing Stories, and the M. Night Shyamalan thriller Servant. TV+ also includes a few original movies, including a Beastie Boys doc and the Samuel L. Jackson film The Banker. Cost: $5 per month/three months free with purchase of many Apple devices Don't have Apple TV+? Sign Up Hulu . The Disney-owned streamer is the best service if you’re a cord-cutter who still craves traditional TV: It offers next-day access to most prime-time shows from ABC, NBC, FX, Freeform, and Fox, plus its own medium-sized slate of original, generally well-reviewed shows (The Handmaid’s Tale, Nine Perfect Strangers, Only Murders in the Building, Dopesick, Rami, Shrill) and the occasional first-run feature film. In 2020, it also launched FX on Hulu, which combines most of FX’s past shows with exclusive offerings such as the limited series Mrs. America. Hulu also offers the ability to add on a live TV service with dozens of channels and the ability to record shows to a cloud DVR, plus options to subscribe to rival premium services. Cost: $7 per month (with ads)/$13 per month (no ads)/$64 (with live TV and ads)/$71 (with live TV and no ads); also available as part of a bundle with Disney+ and ESPN+ ($13 per month) Don't have Hulu? Sign Up Paramount+ . The Streamer Formerly Known As CBS All Access continues to be heavy on content from the Eye broadcast network: You get next-day access to shows such as NCIS, Young Sheldon and The Equalizer, as well as NFL games, as well as a live feed of your local CBS station. But the platform’s rebranding to Paramount+ has brought with it a slew of library content from cable networks MTV, Comedy Central, VH1, BET, Nickelodeon, and the Paramount Network cable channel, as well as the promise of more reboots and reunions tied to shows from those brands (as well as from CBS properties such as 60 Minutes and Criminal Minds). The service has also supersized its movie offering, with the addition of a couple thousand titles from the Paramount Pictures and MGM libraries. What’s more, newer Paramount movies now show up earlier on the platform, with some debuting as soon as one month after their theatrical debuts. Finally, as in the All Access days, Paramount+ houses all things Star Trek, both old and new. Cost: $5 per month or $10 per month (no ads); $12 per month bundled with Showtime Don't have Paramount+? Sign Up Disney+ . The happiest place in TV land for Disney fans, since virtually every major movie in its collection (animated or otherwise) can be found here. The focus is on tentpole Disney brands such as Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, and National Geographic, as well as the company’s namesake family-friendly fare. Original content is still a work in progress, but this is the only place you can watch The Baby Yoda Show (sometimes known by its formal title of The Mandalorian). And if you have kids over the age of 2 and can afford the monthly charge, there’s probably no better electronic babysitter. Cost: $8 per month/$80 per year; also available as part of a bundle with Hulu and ESPN+ ($14 per month) Don't have Disney+? Sign Up HBO Max . HBO Max launched amid some confusion. At the time, there were already two HBO streamers: HBO Go and HBO Now. HBO Go was how cable subscribers caught up with shows like Girls or Game of Thrones online. HBO Now, available since 2015, was a digital version of the premium cable channel, serving up the full lineup of current and past HBO series, movies, and feature films. Since then, WarnerMedia has largely consolidated its apps into HBO Max, which replicates everything offered on Now, but adds in thousands of additional hours of classic movies (Casablanca, The Wizard of Oz, the Criterion Collection) and TV shows (Friends, The Big Bang Theory, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, South Park), plus original projects (an Anna Kendrick romantic comedy called Love Life, a reboot of Gossip Girl) and significant libraries from Studio Ghibli and DC Comics’ fleet of onscreen superheroes. But the existence of these two identically priced platforms doesn’t mean you now need to subscribe to both. That’s because anyone who buys HBO Now automatically gets access to HBO Max for free, while anyone who signs up for HBO Max will, as noted, have access to literally everything available on HBO Now. AT&T, which owns both platforms, will gladly take your money if you sign up for both, but please, don’t do that. For 98 percent of streamers, Max is the right call: more content, same price. But if you’re an HBO purist who has a philosophical objection to the idea of The Sopranos and The Big Bang Theory sharing the same content row, then by all means, go ahead and subscribe to HBO Now. Just know that if for some reason you later decide you want to check out something on Max, you’ll be able to access it, too. Cost: HBO Max, $15 per month Don't have HBO Max? Sign Up Peacock . Its name is an homage to NBC’s peacock logo, and it is part of the same Comcast corporate family as NBC, so Peacock is really just NBC for streaming, right? Well, not really. It’s true that there’s a lot of NBC DNA in Peacock, including next-day reruns of some NBC primetime shows plus a library filled with stuff from either NBC (SNL, The Rockford Files, the Law & Order franchise) or Comcast-owned entities such as E!, Bravo and Oxygen. But in reality, Peacock is trying to be something closer to Hulu— a service for folks who like the kinds of shows on broadcast and cable networks, and don’t mind putting up with advertising if it means paying a lot less. So in addition to stuff borrowed from the various Comcast content libraries, you can watch back episodes of Paramount Network’s megahit Yellowstone, old episodes of George Lopez, Everybody Hates Chris, and The King of Queens, plus a decent (and ever-changing) selection of blockbuster movies. There are also Peacock originals, including an update of Brave New World and a thriller called Departure. You can even pretend you’re watching old school linear TV with Peacock’s Channels option, which lets users scroll through an on-screen program guide and join various programs already in progress. Cost: A basic version is free to anyone, but doesn’t let you watch all Peacock originals and some big library titles. Peacock Premium includes everything on the service and costs $5 per month unless you get your cable or internet via Comcast Xfinity or Cox. Ad-free Peacock costs another $5 per month. Don't have Peacock? Sign Up Discovery+ . Launched in 2021, Discovery+ is overflowing with reality TV programming from (deep breath) TLC, Food Network, HGTV, OWN, ID, Travel Channel, History, Animal Planet, A&E, Lifetime, Cooking Channel, DYI, Science, AHC, Discovery Life, Destination America, the Magnolia Network and, of course, Discovery Channel. In other words, if you’ve ever spent a weekend day marathoning shows such as 90-Day Fiancé, Dr. Pimple Popper, Ice Road Truckers, Property Brothers, or Ready for Love, you will almost certainly find something to binge here. The streamer says it has over 55,000 episodes of various shows, both old and current, in its programming catalogue, in addition to dozens of Discovery+ original series, many of which tie in to existing franchises. And for folks who need a break from humanity, the service is also home to a wide array of programming from the BBC’s respected natural history unit (including Planet Earth and its sequels.) Cost: $5 per month (with ads) or $7 (no ads) Don't have Discovery+? Sign up Wish You Had Premium Cable? . Showtime’s Ray Donovan. Photo: Jeff Neuman/Jeff Neumann/SHOWTIME Showtime . The digital version of the decades-old cable network focuses mostly on original scripted series, including buzz magnets such as Billions, The Chi, and Black Monday, as well as long-running staple Shameless. There’s also a regularly refreshed selection of original documentaries, plus some news (The Circus, Vice) and talk (Desus & Mero) programming. And while breakouts such as Homeland, Ray Donovan, and The Affair have ended their runs, they’re all available in the deep library of former Showtime series still available to stream on the service. What you won’t find is a big selection of recent blockbuster movies. While some hits do find their way here (Minari, Forrest Gump, and Moonlight, for example), Showtime long ago opted to stop spending on big movie output deals in favor of making more of its own shows. Cost: $11 per month; $12-per-month bundle with Paramount+ Don't have Showtime? Sign Up Epix Now  . The MGM-owned cable network finally began offering a direct-to-consumer service in 2019, letting cord-cutters access the premium channel’s roster of movies and original series. In addition to a robust offering of recent and classic films drawn from the MGM library (duh) as well as studios such as Sony, Paramount, and Lionsgate, Epix has also been slowly building a roster of originals. Notable titles include a well-reviewed adaptation of Get Shorty, dramas Godfather of Harlem and Pennyworth, and for Downton Abbey stans still suffering withdrawal pains, the Julian Fellowes joint, Belgravia (a co-production with the U.K.’s ITV). Cost: $6 per month Don't have Epix Now? Sign up Starz . While it sometimes seems this service only exists as a delivery mechanism for new episodes of Outlander, the digital edition of the cable network does offer a lot more for subscribers. Other original series include 2020 crime drama Hightown and the expensive adaptation of American Gods, along with Latinx drama Vida. And while the blockbuster quotient on Starz has declined in recent years as some key movie output deals expired, there’s still a strong selection of high-profile recent releases such as Little Women, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, and Pain and Glory. Classic TV fans might also wanna give Starz a gander: The network has the on-demand libraries of beloved shows such as Good Times, The Jeffersons, Party Down, The Bernie Mac Show, Knight Rider; old-school toons (Voltron, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Sabrina: The Animated Series); and lots of Westerns (Lonesome Dove, The Big Valley, Death Valley Days). Cost: $9 per month Don't have Starz? SIgn up International Offerings . Find Coronation Street and other popular British shows on Britbox. Photo: ITV Acorn . An Anglophile’s best friend, Acorn caters to audiences who want (much) more British programming than you’ll find on PBS or BBC America, along with a decent-sized serving of shows from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and France. Its lineup has some big hits (A Place to Call Home, Midsomer Murders, Murdoch Mysteries, and Doc Martin), plus exclusives such as Dagliesh, Dead Still, and Agatha Raisin.  Cost: $6 per month/$60 per year Don't have Acorn? Sign up Britbox . An Anglophile’s other best friend, this streamer draws heavily on the libraries of two major British broadcasters, the BBC and ITV, to deliver a Thames-deep collection of current and past scripted programs (er, programmes) from across the Pond. Plus, the Britbox Now section of the service offers a ton of U.K. news (Good Morning Britain, Question Time), panel shows (Pointless, Mock the Week), and soaps (EastEnders, Coronation Street) almost as soon as they air in the U.K. The one downside: Because Amazon, Netflix, and HBO pay top dollar for the U.S. rights to blockbusters, some of the most buzzy British shows aren’t here. Cost: $7 per month/$70 annually Don't have Britbox? Sign up Kocowa . Dramas, variety shows, and K-pop programming drawn from the libraries of three big Korean TV networks (that also happen to jointly own the service). Beyond a rich collection of VOD titles, the platform also has Taste24HR, which streams shows airing on linear TV in South Korea a day after their original broadcast (sort of like Hulu does in the States.) And you don’t need to speak Korean to enjoy: Most shows have English-language subtitles. Cost: $1 per day/$7 per month/$70 annually Don't have Kocowa? Sign up MHz Choice  . If you’re looking for a broad range of international series, with an emphasis on European countries, this service programs more than 2,500 hours of drama, comedy, and mystery series, all with English subtitles. There’s a mix of older titles as well as new releases, including the Spanish import Arde Madrid: Burn Madrid Burn (featuring Younger’s Debi Mazar); French mystery Les Secrets; and Norwegian crime drama Twin, featuring Game of Thrones regular Kristofer Hivju (a.k.a. Tormund). You can sample some programming (with ads) via the platform’s free MHz Now service, too Cost: $8 per month/$90 per year Don't have MHz Choice? sign up Pantaya  . Studios Lionsgate and Pantelion Films are behind this Latinx-centric streamer featuring premium scripted series and about 300 Spanish-language movies (including some that have run while still in theaters in Mexico). Programming is a mix of acquisitions from other countries (including Drunk History: Mexico) and originals such as Ana and Vota Juan. Cost: $6 per month Don't have Pantaya? sign up Spuul  . A massive library of Bollywood productions (10,000 hours’ worth), plus the ability to watch content in multiple regional Indian languages plus dozens of live channels of Indian TV. Cost: free with ads; ~$1.50 per month/$6 for six months for premium subscriptions Don't have Spuul? Sign up Specialty Niches . The original Halloween, available to stream on Shudder. Photo: Aquarius Releasing Shudder . The horror, the horror — plus thrills, chills, and all the things that go bump in the night are the stars of this AMC Network–owned streamer devoted to scaring the heck out of its subscribers. Beyond some of the big titles of the genre (Halloween and other franchises are well-represented) and cult favorites (Class of 1984, Sorority Babes), the service offers premium, scripted original movies and shows, including a series remake of Creepshow.  Cost: $6 per month/$57 per year Don't have Shudder? Sign up ESPN+ . We’ll add more sports options to this list soon, but in the meantime, this is the big one that should be on your radar. The most important thing you need to know is that ESPN+ isn’t a way of getting ESPN without paying for cable. It’s an add-on platform for fans who want extra coverage of sports like tennis and soccer, more UFC and boxing, plus the ability to dive deeper into ESPN’s catalogue of original programming, including the full 30 on 30 library. Cost: $7 per month/$70 per year or bundled with Hulu and Disney+ for $14 per month Don't have ESPN+? Sign Up Night Flight . What it is: The digital reincarnation of the groundbreaking 1980s music-and-culture TV series serves up a deep library of amazing artifacts from the 1970s–1990s, and the variety is impressive. Beyond a selection of complete episodes, you’ll find everything from midnight movies (Desperate Teenage Lovedolls, I Was a Zombie for the F.B.I.) and music docs (Life on the V, Heavy Metal Parking Lot) to full episodes of Gumby and Dr. Ruth’s syndicated talk show. Cost: $5 per month/$40 annually Don't have Night Flight? Sign up Shout! Factory TV . What it is: The much-loved indie DVD (and, back in the day, music) distributor has put much of its video library online, serving up a great assortment of 20th-century cult TV shows and movies. Tentpole titles include Mystery Science Theater 3000 and old episodes of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (sadly, minus musical guests), but where the service shines is with smaller gems such as the Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts, The Weird Al Show, Fridays, and Space: 1999.  Cost: free with ads, with specific rentals available via Amazon Prime Video Don't have Shout! Factory? Sign Up Boomerang . A big chunk of the Warner Bros. and Hanna-Barbera cartoon libraries lives here, including shows from Toontown patriarchs such as Fred Flintstone, Bugs Bunny, Yogi Bear, Papa Smurf, and Scooby Doo, plus honorary daddy Captain Caveman. There are also a few modern series, including Juniper Lee and Camp Lazlo. Perfect for baby boomers and Gen-Xers looking for a nostalgia fix or a way to school their kids and grandkids on the concept of “Saturday morning cartoons.” Cost: $5 per month/$40 per year Don't have Boomerang?

Photo: Nick Briggs/Carnival Film & Television Ltd PBS Passport . It’s all (or at least most of) the goodness of PBS, now on demand. While PBS makes a good deal of current content available to stream for free via its app, you need to have the Passport service to stream past episodes of drama faves such as Downton Abbey and Poldark. You’ll also find dozens of unscripted shows, including Nova, Frontline, and American Experience, as well as programming from your local PBS station. (By the way, if you want kids’ programming, check out the free PBS Kids video app and website. And if you’re in the Amazon Prime Video ecosystem, you can also check out PBS Masterpiece, which is pretty much the same as Passport, with some added content. For more on PBS Masterpiece, see our entry on Walter Presents.) Cost: Instead of a set price tag, you just have to make a monthly or annual contribution to your PBS station, which also determines how much that donation needs to be to grant Passport access (though $5 per month is usually enough). Don't have PBS Passport? sign up CuriosityStream . You’ve probably seen one of the omnipresent ads, but in case you haven’t: It’s basically a reincarnation of what Discovery Channel and TLC used to be before they got heavily into reality shows — educational and feel-good fare focused on nature, history, science, and technology. (Not surprisingly, the man behind CuriosityStream, John Hendricks, founded Discovery Networks a few decades ago.) And while most of the content isn’t specifically made for kids, its educational bent makes it perfect for parents looking to keep the kiddos engaged and educated.

A quirky streamer owned by the U.K.’s Channel 4 that’s devoted to international dramas, with Italian producer Walter Iuzzolino personally curating the service’s selections.

You’ll need to have a Roku player or a Comcast Xfinity subscription in order to get the full service, which generally features about 60 different titles.

The 18-year-old distributor, which started out in 2002 with a monthly DVD club, now has a streaming service offering more than 300 indie titles and dozens of short films.

His work has been cited by Wikipedia, Crunchbase, and Hacker News, and he is a Certified Financial Education Instructor through the National Financial Educators Council. Updated on September 13, 2021 Make all your streams come true (while trimming your budget). Man lived thousands of years without television. If you wanted to watch television in Ancient Greece, the closest you could get was attending the theater and there were only two channels: comedy or drama. Fast forward to the 1920s when the son of a Utah farmer, Philo Farnsworth, created the first true television. For decades, viewers could only watch network programming and tv shows. Then came the advent of cable, and the number of channels multiplied to thousands. Enter 21st century disruption: In February 2007, a little DVD mailing service called Netflix started streaming movies online and television was changed once more. Now there are perhaps too many streaming options available, and more are coming all the time. “With Disney+ dropping soon, we are going to see the industry get hit with its first real game changer since Hulu started offering same-season streaming options,” says Jason David, CEO of Software Portal. “The problem is that, with all of the new options available now and coming soon, there is not one service that is the clear winner.” At the same time, with so many streaming services available, they all may be winning at taking your money, which begs the question: Are we spending too much on streaming services? Mastering the stream of content. Streaming service can be cheaper than cable, but it’s not cheaper to pay for all of them at one time. The small monthly fees can quickly add up, bringing you right back to paying more for television service. Sticking with one service may be a good choice, but there are other options, as well. Instead of choosing one champion, David recommends playing streaming “hopscotch.” In other words, sign up for and cancel subscriptions year to year, or even month to month (as long as there are no cancellation fees), based on your preferences (and budget). You will want to keep track of which shows and movies are coming to and leaving various streaming services so you can manage your memberships accordingly. In some instances, you may be able to bundle your services or find hidden discounts. Let’s take a look at some of those options. Disney+. As David mentioned, Disney is the newest colossus to step into the streaming arena. Disney has spent the last couple decades swallowing some of the largest media properties on the planet, so their upcoming Disney+ (pronounced Disney Plus) service will have some very popular properties for a monthly price of $6.99 per month, or less if you prepay for the year. This is cheaper than Netflix’s subscription price (at least at the time this article was written) in addition to other popular streaming services in the marketplace. Aside from classic Disney animated films, Disney+ will also offer live-action Disney movies, Marvel movies, Pixar movies, Star Wars movies, and more. While Disney will not immediately release its full catalogue upon launch of the new streaming service, they do plan to regularly update the offerings, while debuting exclusive original series, as well. Expect to see new shows in both the Marvel and the Star Wars universes (Who is ready for the Mandalorian?). That is in addition to the extensive backlog of Disney and Fox shows. For those of you looking to hang on to the Disney Channel for your kids, you can expect a new High School Musical series, as well. If you are willing to trade one streaming service for another, this could be a good deal. And then there are the bundles: If you don’t care about ads or live-streaming, and if you aren’t willing to give up your other TV shows or streaming services, there is the option to bundle a basic Hulu package and ESPN+ with your Disney+ bundle — all for less than the cost of three lattes. Hulu. Hulu was originally created as a joint venture between NBC and Fox, and like Fox, is now mostly under Disney control. As such, it is unclear exactly what Hulu’s future might be as each of its “parents” put out their own dedicated streaming services, but Disney has said that they will maintain and grow the service. Hulu has a large range of plans available for the Hulu-curious to peruse. The array of options and add-ons almost starts to resemble a flowchart, so you may be better off looking at the possibilities for yourself. Hulu does stream advertisements on its lower tiers, but it is also one of the only streaming services to currently offer episodes of “traditional television” as they air. This add-on is not currently available with the Disney+ bundle. Netflix. Netflix really kicked off streaming as an alternative to more traditional television. They were still just a mail service when Youtube launched, but it is only more recently that Youtube has tried to compete as a long-form streaming alternative. Even after years of gradual price raises, Netflix’s $12.99 per month membership is still much lower than a $107 cable bill. That is why Netflix has been a preferred refuge for cord cutters. But as other entertainment conglomerates have gotten into the streaming battles, they have started pulling their content from Netflix to build up their own offerings. Two of the biggest examples of this phenomenon are the upcoming departure of The Office to NBC’s future streaming platform and the exodus of the titular Friends to the soon-to-launch HBO Max. Still, Netflix has been investing a lot of money into original movies and other types of original content. If it is good enough for Martin Scorsese, it may be worth keeping around if it does not push your budget too far. Bundle tip: T-mobile customers who have more than one line on certain plans can quality for a Netflix credit! For some, this means free Netflix, for others, a $2 subscription fee, but either way, it’s definitely a savings off the full-price option. Prime Streaming. Amazon’s streaming service, Prime Video, offers access to programming as part of the company’s Prime membership, which costs $12.99 per month or $119 per year. If Amazon Prime is already part of your regular budget, you win! While they may not offer the volume of exclusive programming that Netflix does or Disney+ will, it comes with all the other benefits of Prime membership. Bottom Line: It’s About Priorities. Just as with any budgeting decision, selecting the right streaming option is all about setting priorities and limits. If you can bundle some of these services into already existing costs, like your monthly phone bill or Amazon Prime membership, it can save you a pretty penny. In other cases, going for a package deal may also be the right choice for your budget. We hope you enjoyed this brief streaming safari. It was not even close to comprehensive regarding current offerings or what is still to come. But we assume you skimmed this while binge watching the newest streaming original or rewatching a sitcom you have seen hundreds of times, so feel free to return your full attention to that.

Let’s dive into the details to find the best service for you.

There are two types of streaming services on the market: live TV and on-demand. If you no longer want to pay for a cable or satellite TV bill, a live TV streaming service might be the best option for you. If you're going to binge-watch TV series and movies, you'll be satisfied with an on-demand service. Streaming services that work best for consumers include:. A fair number of channels or on-demand content An affordable price for the number of channels or content you receive A good variety of channels/content Sufficient DVR storage space (live TV) Add-ons and subscriptions (live TV) When choosing the best live TV streaming service for you, the first thing you want to consider is price. How much are you willing to spend on a live TV service? For example, Sling TV is the best for money-savers, YouTube TV is average pricing, and fuboTV is the most expensive. With that, you'll want to make sure you're getting the most bang for your buck. Sling TV will have the least number of channels while fuboTV will have the most (and make sure you get a variety you like). As of right now, the average DVR storage space for live TV streaming services is about 500 hours. You might not need this much space and you might find Sling TV's 50-hour storage space as insufficient. When choosing an on-demand streaming service, you'll also want to get the most with your money. Netflix is the priciest on-demand service when you upgrade, but you'll have access to 15,000 titles. You also have to make sure the on-demand streaming service has a decent variety of content, such as network TV shows, original series, movies, and original films. Want to read more?

That means you'll get various channels for news, sports, lifestyle, kids, and entertainment. But one part that makes fuboTV stand out is the number of sports channels you'll get access to, both national and international. With the Starter plan, you'll get 35 sports channels, and with Elite, you'll get a whopping total of 50. That's the highest number of sports channels you can get with any TV provider out there. Here's a sneak peek of the channel lineups to understand better which one is best for you. fuboTV's Starter package includes the following channels: Big Ten Network Disney Channel ESPN, ESPN2 Food Network FOX News FS1, FS2 Hallmark Channel HGTV Lifetime NBC Sports Network NFL Network Nickelodeon Telemundo Univision fuboTV's Elite package includes all of the above channels and the following: BBC World News The Cooking Channel ESPNU MLB Network Nat Geo Wild NBA TV Nicktoons PAC-12 Networks Sony Movie Channel TeenNick Tennis Channel Zona Fútbol fuboTV is one of our top picks for Spanish speakersfuboTV made our list for best streaming services for Spanish speakers because it offers a Latino Plus package, which has more than 30 Spanish-language channels ($33/month) para tu familia o para tu Abuelita. fuboTV has a sleek interface. fuboTV wins at the interface game. fuboTV has a unique interface that is easy to navigate and quickly helps you find something you want to watch. Here are a few examples of why. First, when you open up your home page, you'll find six tabs at the top to get you to what you want within seconds. Other services usually just have three. Second, if you're a sports fan, you'll like this feature. The Sports tab recommends featured sports shows and events. As you scroll down, you'll find a mini guide of events happening today (or you can change the date). And third, fuboTV's guide is so seamless and convenient. The guide has a drop-down menu on the left to change the date. Choose a genre of channels you'd like to browse, and use the search bar at the top to get to your favorite TV network with a few taps. What we don’t like about fuboTV. If it had an unlimited DVR storage space, it could be a 5-star service fuboTV’s DVR storage is second best to YouTube TV’s. fuboTV has made enormous changes to its service over the years, and it has recently become our number one choice. One of those great changes was increasing the Cloud DVR storage. fuboTV raised its DVR storage to 250-1,000 hours of storage from 30 hours. Instead of just recording 15 TV shows and about six movies, you can now record at least 75 TV episodes and nearly 30 films.

What we like about YouTube TV. YouTube TV has an outstanding variety of channels This live TV streaming service has an unlimited DVR storage YouTube TV has most of the channels you love. YouTube TV comes in at a close second because it has a variety of channels most families want. Although it's the same price as fuboTV's Starter package (which has about 20 more channels), YouTube TV is the only live TV streaming service that offers NFL Network, MLB Network, and NBA TV in its lineup for $65 per month. And if you're an NBA fantasy player, we recommend YouTube TV. YouTube TV is the best for streaming NBA games this season. If you're a major sports watcher, YouTube TV might be the best option for you. And of course, this service has channels for the kiddos and the roommate who loves reality TV. Check out the full YouTube TV channel lineup to see if it has the channels you and the house can enjoy, but some channels include the following: ABC Animal Planet Cartoon Network CNN Disney Channel FOX ESPN, ESPN2 FS1, FS2 HGTV MLB Network MSNBC NBA TV NFL Network Nickelodeon SEC Network TBS Telemundo TNT Enjoy that unlimited DVR storage space. The DVR's unlimited storage space is a feature that plays into the value of YouTube TV. No other streaming service gives you an unlimited DVR storage space, and your recordings will save for nine months. You can record all episodes from The Office and Friends, as well as all the movies your heart desires. The DVR comes in handy during game season too. You can record a great NFL football game one season, save it, and watch it again during the summer when you're missing the gridiron action. What we don’t like about YouTube TV. No Hallmark, HISTORY, or Tennis Channel YouTube TV is missing a few channels, but it might not be a big deal. Bad news for Hallmark movie junkies, Ancient Aliens fans, and Rodger Federer followers--you can't get your fix with YouTube TV, unfortunately. But if you do go the YouTube TV route, we have some solutions: The Roku Channel and Pluto TV can help those who need their Hallmark and HISTORY Channel content. Find more information about these two services in our best free streaming services review. There are other ways to get the Hallmark, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, and Hallmark Drama channels on your TV or smartphone. On the other hand, access to the Tennis Channel is a bit tricky. You can stream all Wimbledon games through ESPN+, but you'll have to sign in with your TV provider (i.e., DISH, Xfinity, Sling TV, etc.).

What we like about Netflix. Netflix has lots of original content This on-demand streaming service has a traditional interface Who doesn’t love one-of-a-kind content? Netflix is No. 1 in original content with its famous directors, producers, and actors, as well as comedy specials. It's no question that lots of Netflix's original content has become popular and known. Some popular original series you've likely heard of include: Tiger King, Stranger Things, and Orange Is the New Black. Some current, fantastic Netflix originals you can binge this weekend include: Fatherhood (with Kevin Hart) Virgin River (with Alexandria Breckenridge) Dead to Me (with Christina Applegate and James Marsden) Workin' Moms Fuller House The Crown The Queen's Gambit Grab your popcorn because you'll also get to enjoy super hilarious one- to two-hour comedy specials performed by comedians Dave Chappelle, Kevin Hart, Joe Rogan, Chris Rock, Bert Kreischer, and Ricky Gervais. You'll have hours upon hours of content to watch while you wind down for the day. Netflix has that familiar, OG interface. We have to say we love Netflix's traditional, easy-to-use interface of Popular, Trending, New Releases, Top 10 in the US Today, and so on. You're guaranteed to find something to watch on your Friday movie night. With Netflix, you can find yourself in bed all day just watching great entertainment. Seriously. It's not like we experienced it or anything. On top of the friendly interface and the fact that we can find ourselves stuck streaming in bed, Netflix's parental controls are on point. This is why we named it the best streaming service for kids. You can create a kids profile and a PIN so your little ones can't access mature TV shows and movies. What we don’t like about Netflix. Netflix is the most expensive on-demand streaming service Netlfix’s top-tier plan is on the pricier side. Netflix has three plans to choose from: Basic for $8.99, Standard for $13.99, and Premium for $17.99. The Basic plan is perfect for those who want access to the 15,000 titles available on Netflix. You'll just have to be OK with no HD (high definition) viewing, and you probably don't want to share your password because you can only stream on one device at once. The Standard plan's price isn't too hard to swallow. When you upgrade to this plan, you can stream on two devices (so you can probably share your password with your roommate or significant other). Like the Standard plan, you'll get to watch your content in HD with the Premium plan. Netflix's Premium plan is the most expensive on-demand plan. But it might be worth upgrading to from the Standard plan. For $4 more, you can stream on four devices at the same time. So now you won't have to worry about getting booted off your account when watching Schitt's Creek. View Plans | Read Full Netflix Review Hulu is best for newer content. Hulu’s unbeatable timing with new content is partly what makes it so great How much does Hulu cost? PlanPriceDetailsLimited Ads$5.99View PlansNo Ads$11.99View Plans What we like about Hulu. Hulu delivers loads of newer content Hulu has also been known for its original content We want new content. When do we want it? Now! You can count on Hulu to deliver the brand new episode of Manifest and America's Got Talent soon after it airs on live television. For example, when The Bachelor/ Bachelorette airs on ABC Monday night, it will become available by 9 a.m. (ET) the next morning. Now that's great timing. Mostly for us impatient people who don't want to see any spoilers on Twitter or Instagram. Other next-day available TV shows include Motherland, Celebrity Family Feud, and Lego Masters. This unique feature is what makes Hulu one of the best for cord-cutters. Hulu has popular original content. Netflix wins the title for the best original content, but Hulu is one of our top five favorites for its unique content. You won't find these shows anywhere else besides on this specific streaming service. Hulu includes the following Original series and movies: Nine Perfect Strangers Handmaid's Tale Letterkenny False Positive Summer of Soul Love, Victor Solar Opposites Little Fires Everywhere Madagascar: A Little Wild Animaniacs The United States vs. Billie Holiday Changing the Game What we don’t like about Hulu. You'll have the upgrade to get no ads You’ll probably want the top-tier plan. We like how Netflix doesn't include ads in any of its plans. But with Hulu, you'll want its most expensive plan for no interruptions. No one wants to watch two ad breaks every 30-minutes. So, you might find yourself upgrading to the $12 per month plan. Keep in mind that Hulu only lets you stream on two devices at once with both plans. That's nice for those who want the $6 per month plan, but this can become a problem for large families.

What we like about Sling TV. Sling TV is perfect for money savers Sling TV is great for budget-minded people. Sling TV has three inexpensive packages: Sling Orange, Sling Blue, and Sling Orange + Blue. Sling Orange and Sling Blue are each $35 per month, which is an excellent price. The difference is in the channels. Sling Orange has about 32 channels, including Cartoon Network, Disney Channel, Freeform, and Food Network. Sling Blue has about 47, including Fox News, MSNBC, Nick Jr., TBS, and USA. So we encourage you to check out the channel lineups of both to find out which package is the best for you and your family. The Orange + Blue plan, on the other hand, gives you all of the channels in Sling Orange and Sling Blue in one package for $15 more. As of right now, $50 per month isn't too bad of a deal for a little over 50 channels, while the average price for live TV streaming services is about $65 for 65-100 channels. What we don’t like about Sling TV. Sling TV's DVR storage space is questionable One of the worst DVRs in the industry. We hate to say it, but Sling TV's DVR is one of the poorest DVRs in the industry. A DVR with 50 hours can fill up quicker than you think, especially if you're sharing with the fam. And you'll have to add $5 to your monthly bill for the 200-hour DVR storage space. If you choose to keep the 50-hour DVR storage, just remember, your older recordings will automatically delete so the DVR can find storage space for your new recordings. We should mention that Hulu + Live TV's DVR also holds 50 hours, and it charges $10 for 200 hours. And AT&T TV gives you only 20 hours of DVR storage space. At least Sling TV has an excuse because this service is on the inexpensive side. View Plans | Read Full Sling TV Review Other streaming service optionsWe have some honorary mentions just in case none of these streaming services seem like the right fit for you and your family.Hulu + Live TV gives you access to over 65 channels and a vast on-demand library. Disney+ lets you watch all Disney, Star Wars, Marvel, and Pixar content. And lastly, enjoy on-demand content and rapid Prime Shipping with Amazon Prime Video. Recap: Which is the best streaming service? fuboTV: fuboTV is our favorite streaming service because, for $65-$80 per month, you'll get access to over 100 channels and on-demand content (network TV shows and movies). fuboTV has one of the most intuitive user interfaces, and the household will get 250-1,000 hours of DVR storage to share. YouTube TV: Coming in at a close second, YouTube TV is a family favorite. Like fuboTV, you'll get a great variety of channels for whatever mood you might be in. Unlike fuboTV, you'll get the major sports networks in its $65 per month plan. Netflix: Netflix's original content is tough to beat. Netflix's ample funding provides for top-notch productions you'll only find on this streaming service. Not only is it No. 1 in original content, but it's also number one in content overall with its ginormous library of 15,000 titles that will never leave you bored. Hulu: If you want to watch the latest episode of your favorite network TV show but don't have cable TV, Hulu is a no-brainer. We know you need to catch up on The Bachelorette ASAP to see if your Bachelorette bracket is still alive. Hulu also creates an abundant amount of excellent original content, like Handmaid's Tale. Sling TV: If you want live TV channels but are on a budget, Sling TV is the service you'll be most happy with. You can get 35-45+ channels for only $35 per month while saving for that new home.

We compare and rank streaming services based on five key factors: Content/ channel variety for everyone Content/ channel count Price DVR storage space Add-ons The best streaming services have a variety that everyone in the family can enjoy. Top-rated live TV streaming services have channels ranging from news to sports to kids, while on-demand streaming services have a library filled with many genres. The next thing we look at to determine the best streaming service is the amount of on-demand content or live TV channels. The price has to be fair in relation to the assortment and the bulk of content and channels. For example, Apple TV+ has one of the smallest (but fantastic) on-demand libraries, and it's reflected in its pricing at $5 per month. And lastly, when looking for a live TV streaming service, you'll want to consider the DVR storage space and add-ons. You'll want to make sure your next service has the add-ons you constantly use, like SHOWTIME, the NFL RedZone Channel, and Acorn. How much does each state spend on streaming services? This year, we've all spent an ample amount of time in our coziest of cozies watching some quality television. However, this does come at a financial cost. So, how much are we spending to stream our way to a small bit of TV-induced Nirvana? Let's find out. Average monthly streaming spend by state. State by state, the spending on streaming varies. This is perhaps because some of us enjoy a good old-fashioned puzzle more than others, or subscribe to fewer streaming services than our neighbors across state lines, or that some just prefer cable. Those who are on the higher end of the spending spectrum may have more expansive curiosities and subscribe to premium streaming services at a higher cost. Either way, here's how it all breaks down. Key findings: The mean cost of a cable television service in the US is $107/month.2 The national average for streaming spending is $48.25/mo., less than half what Americans are spending on cable television bills. Nearly 54% of Americans are still paying for cable television, often in addition to their streaming service bills. People in Washington D.C. spend the most monthly at $52.75/mo.,while people in New Mexico spend the least, spending $39.50/mo. States that spend the most/least on streaming. Findings: States that spend the most on streaming appear to have larger urban areas (D.C.. Maryland, Illinois, Washington, New Jersey, etc.) The states that spend less tend to have more rural population density (Arkansas, Iowa, Alabama, etc.) Streaming is a nation-wide phenomenon. At the end of the day, no matter the cost, the comfort we get from the solace of our heroes of sport, the "big screen", or even the kitchen (c'mon y'all, we're all loving the Great British Baking Show), is pretty much always worth it, and perhaps even more so now than ever. However, we did find that difference in the amount of money that Americans are spending on streaming vs. cable is significant, so choose your plans wisely. The costs may vary, but the joys of a big 'ol heaping bowl of family time, getting away from it all, and maybe even just enjoying a communal laugh, are priceless. Keep on with your active-wear-loving selves, and enjoy the little things. Methodology. Reviews.org surveyed 316,174 Americans and asked them to submit a record of all the streaming services they are actively subscribed to. We then applied the standard pricing for all 40 unique streaming services and pricing tiers (such as services that offer both on-demand and live broadcast streaming) as submitted by respondents. Using this information, we found the average amount that Americans spend on streaming services per month on both a state and national level.

Nearly two year after it was first announced, HBO Max — the streaming service from HBO and WarnerMedia — is running at full steam these days, with hit shows like White Lotus and Mare of Easttown, and first-run films from Warner Bros. slate of new premieres (think Dune and Zack Snyder’s Justice League). But is HBO Max worth the price of admission? This streaming service is different from other streaming services in a couple of ways, so we’ve broken down all the details for you below. HBO Max Pricing, Plans, Subscription. An ad-free subscription to HBO Max costs $14.99 per month for new subscribers, but is free for current HBO or HBO NOW customers. That’s around the same price as Netflix ($14) but more than Hulu ($5.99), or a Disney+ bundle that includes Disney+, EPSN+ and Hulu for just $13.99 total. Related .

Buy: HBO Max Ad-Supported Plan at $9.99 If you don’t want to sign up for an account on your computer, there are a couple of other ways to subscribe: How to Get HBO Max Through Cable Company. HBO Max comes with a traditional subscription to HBO, which you can add to a cable package through the following providers: AT&T TV, DIRECTV, U-Verse TV, Cox, Optimum, Spectrum, Verizon Fios TV, and others. Call up your cable provider for more information on how to sign up. How to Watch HBO Max On a Smartphone Or Tablet. If you want to watch HBO Max shows on your phone or tablet, simply download the HBO Max app on your iOS or Android device, and you’ll be prompted to log into your account. If you don’t have one, you can sign up from inside the app itself. Can You Watch HBO Max on Media Streamers, Game Consoles, and Smart TVs? The HBO Max app is available on Apple TV, Samsung TVs released after 2016, the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Roku and Fire TV devices. Once downloaded, open the app and you’ll be prompted to log into your account. If you don’t have one, you can sign up from inside the app itself. What Can You Watch on HBO Max? Friends, Sex and the City, Game Of Thrones. All streaming services work the same way: pick what you want to watch, and start streaming. What differentiates HBO Max is its library of exclusive catalogue titles and upcoming original shows. HBO says there are already 10,000 hours of “curated” content available to stream, and we’ve highlighted some of the most interesting titles below. WarnerMedia owns the rights to movies and TV shows going back 100 years, so this is the only place you’ll be able to stream classic shows like Friends, Rick and Morty, Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, and Doctor Who. The media company also owns the rights to several blockbuster films, like 2001: A Space Oddysey, Friday The 13th, A Hard Days Night, Casablanca, The Lord of the Rings, Citizen Kane, North By Northwest, Gone With The Wind, and Braveheart. An HBO Max subscription naturally includes access to the entire HBO catalog, which includes The Wire, The Sopranos, Sex and the City, Game of Thrones, Veep, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Westworld. Finally, HBO Max is the only service that allows you to stream anime films from the legendary Japanese film studio Studio Ghibli. This marks the first time these films have been available to stream on any platform. See more of what to stream on HBO Max here. HBO Max New TV Shows and Movies. Beyond catalog titles, HBO Max has an entire list of high profile original TV shows and movies called “HBO Originals,” which have begun rolling out. The service has launched with On The Record (pictured above), a documentary chronicling the life of famous music executive Drew Dixon, Love Life, a “romantic comedy anthology” series whose first season stars Anna Kendrick, Zoë Chao, Peter Vack, and Sasha Compère, and The Not-Too-Late Show With Elmo.  HBO Max’s latest originals include the Fresh Prince of Bel Air and the Friends and West Wing reunions; the back catalogue for those shows are available on the service as well. HBO Original TV shows have launched with a handful of episodes, and new ones will be released on a weekly basis. The number of episodes per season will vary based on the show. HBO Max’s library isn’t as deep as the ones you’ll find on Netflix or Hulu, but its slate of exclusives and originals help keep it competitive. HBO Max Same-Day Movie Releases. WarnerMedia announced that its entire slate of 2021 movies, which includes big titles like The Matrix 4, Dune, Space Jam: A New Legacy, King Richard, Mortal Kombat, and Tom & Jerry among others, will be released on HBO Max on the same day they hit theaters. The movies will be available to stream for 31 days, so you can enjoy blockbusters in your own home at your own pace. No other streaming service has come close to a deal like this, which gives HBO Max a huge leg up over its competition. Though this is a first, it’s easy to imagine more studios following suit over the next few months. Buy: HBO Max Ad-Free Plan at $14.99 HBO Max vs. Netflix. One big difference between HBO Max and streaming services like Netflix is that HBO and WarnerMedia own the rights to the content they’re streaming. That means movies and TV shows won’t be taken down because licensing agreements have run out. But: WarnerMedia’s archives are huge, so it may cycle some shows and movies on and off HBO Max as it sees fit. This is never going to be a service that allows you to see every single thing in the WarnerMedia vault, at least not for now. More and more traditional media companies have created their own streaming services (Think: NBC’s Peacock and CBS’s Paramount Plus) to maintain exclusive streaming rights on their content, and avoid splitting revenue with a third party. HBO and WarnerMedia can acquire the rights to more shows and movies, so the HBO Max library has the opportunity grow over time, but that’s not guaranteed. The Bottom Line: Is HBO Max Worth It? If you’re already an HBO subscriber, the choice of whether or not to get HBO Max has been decided for you; start streaming. As we said earlier, HBO Max doesn’t have the same number of TV shows and movies as its competitors, but its deep back catalogue and upcoming exclusives won’t be available to stream anywhere else. In our mind, that makes an HBO Max subscription more than worth it. Even at the higher $14.99 tier, the monthly price is cheaper than a movie ticket to see the new releases in theaters. And unlike a theater, where you have to deal with lineups and Covid fears, an HBO Max subscription lets you watch all the new shows and films from the comfort and safety of home. The best part: your HBO Max subscription gets you unlimited viewing too — so you can watch your favorite programming on-demand and as many times as you want.

This review will help you decide.What Is Discovery Plus And Is It Worth It?Discovery+ features a streaming library of non-fiction and reality shows, plus exclusive original series. However, it doesn’t carry live feeds of Discovery-owned networks including HGTV, TLC, Food Network and ID. Discovery CEO David Zaslav views the service as a complement to every household’s streaming portfolio, which may include Netflix or Disney+.During an investor presentation, Zaslav said: “We’re not in this to be small. We’re in this to be very big.”David Zaslav, Discovery CEOMonths after that presentation, it was announced that Discovery+ and WarnerMedia are planning to merge. The deal is expected to close sometime in the middle of 2022.Based on my experience with the Discovery+ product, I believe the service will appeal to three types of people: Cord-cutters or cord-nevers who like non-fiction programming and don’t get enough of it from their existing streaming options. Pay-TV subscribers who want access to Discovery’s library content ad-free. Fans of Discovery’s shows and personalities who want to stream Discovery+ originals in addition to their pay-TV subscription. If you’re thinking about joining Discovery Plus, I’ve put together this list of things that you need to know before you sign up. Let’s get started! 1. How Much Does Discovery+ Cost? . Discovery+ is one of the more affordable streaming TV options available right now. Its ad-supported plan is $4.99 per month and its ad-free plan is $6.99 per month. Although there is no free plan, some Verizon customers can get complimentary access.Verizon is offering “discovery+ on us” for up to 12 months to customers with select unlimited wireless plans. Some home internet customers are also eligible.Discovery+ has a 7-day free trial. There are no contracts or long-term commitments, so you can cancel at any time.2. What’s Included With a Subscription? . At launch, Discovery+ offered access to more than 55,000 episodes from more than 2,500 current and classic shows in the Discovery portfolio of networks. Those networks include HGTV, Food Network, TLC, ID, OWN, Travel Channel, Discovery Channel and Animal Planet.In addition, Discovery has struck deals to bring non-fiction content from outside partners like A&E, History and Lifetime to the streaming platform. Discovery+ primarily features library content, but the second component is original programming.During its December 2020 investor call, company executives said the service launched with 50 original series and exclusive content will be added every week. Four of those originals tie in to TLC’s popular 90 Day Fiancé franchise. Other Discovery+ programming features household names like Chip and Joanna Gaines, Giada De Laurentiis and Mike Rowe.3. Does Discovery+ Offer Live TV? . Discovery+ includes library content and exclusive original series, not live TV from its family of networks. You’ll need a cable, satellite or live TV subscription to watch shows as they premiere. Discovery CFO Gunnar Wiedenfels confirmed during a December 2020 investor call that most shows will not show up on Discovery+ until the end of the current season. However, there are exceptions. Some shows are being added to Discovery+ the day or week after they air.“The vast majority of our linear content will stay on linear and will only be on Discovery+ at a later time after the end of the season.”Gunnar Wiedenfels, Discovery CFOThe absence of live TV makes the streaming service a tougher sell for some fans of Discovery-owned networks.For example: Let’s say that you watch TLC’s 90 Day Fiancé on Sunday nights. You talk about it with your friends and occasionally read the blogs to see what the cast is up to.To continue doing that, you’ll still need a pay-TV subscription.Discovery is not including live TV because it makes a lot of money from affiliate fees. It wants to continue the relationships with cable, satellite and live TV streaming services, while adding this new source of revenue with Discovery+.That’s frustrating to many consumers who would prefer if Discovery+ had an add-on option for live TV.4. How Do You Stream Discovery+? . Whether you’re at home or on the go, you can stream Discovery+ using an internet-connected device.Discovery+ is available on devices including phones, tablets, computers, gaming consoles and connected TVs. Supported devices for TV include Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV, Google Chromecast and Roku. (Full list here)Discovery+ allows up to five user profiles and four simultaneous streams per account. From my testing of Discovery+ so far, the user experience is good. I’ve tried out Discovery+ on my phone, computer and streamed it to a TV using a Roku Express 4K+ player.The first thing I noticed was how quickly I was able to browse Discovery+ with no lag or buffering.When you launch the Discovery+ app, you’ll see a “For You” section with personalized content recommendations based on your viewing history.Navigation is sorted by genres: food, relationships, true crime, etc.You can browse by the Discovery brand that most interests you. And when you select a brand logo, you’ll see a list of the best that network has to offer — including trending content.When you click on a show, you can either watch it now or add it to “My List” to stream later.5. Discovery+ Pros and Cons. For most people, Discovery+ isn’t likely a replacement for Netflix, Disney+ or even HBO Max.However, it may be a good complementary service depending on your household’s streaming budget and desire for additional non-fiction and reality programming.ProsConsAffordable plansNo free tierTons of non-fiction and reality contentNo live TV optionAd-free optionDiscovery+ is a great value if you don’t have a pay-TV service, but it may not be essential if you’re keeping cable, satellite or a live TV streaming service.Look at it this way: With YouTube TV or Philo’s unlimited DVR, you can record your favorite shows from Discovery’s family of networks to create your own personal library of content to stream at your convenience.And unlike with Discovery+, YouTube TV and Philo subscribers can still watch the latest episodes as they premiere. More Michael Saves Content You May Like:.
