Who doesn’t love Netflix? They have amazing original movies & web series of their own that are super popular.

Their library is not as big as Netflix but, they still have a lot of movies, TV, youtube mp3 & Originals to go with. the biggest advantage will be the Pricing here. Amazon Prime Video also starts at $8.99 per month but, in this case, you get HD support. Their $12.99/month plan includes Prime Video but, also includes all the other Amazon Prime services including Prime Music Prime Reading, Prime Delivery & more. Amazon also has a yearly plan ($119) which unfortunately Netflix doesn’t offer.

Hulu also has a great library, a ton of movies, exclusive shows & originals. If you’re okay with a few ads then Hulu might be good for you. Their plans start at $5.99 with HD support which is the cheapest in the bunch. However, you’ll see a few ads then & now. If you want to remove the ads, you need to pay $11.99 instead which is still less than the Netflix Standard Pack by $1 but, Netflix does have a better library. So, it’s up to you if you want to save that $1 or not. They also have a $44.99/month plan that includes their streaming service & TV so, that might be a good value for some people.
