7 Streaming Services That Could Replace Netflix

Started in 1997, Netflix has been the leading video streaming service in the United States for years and has over 83 million customers worldwide. They've made more than 60 original shows and movies that you can only find on their platform, including House of Cards, Stranger Things, and Orange Is the New Black. Recently though, they've been overtaken by other services when it comes to adding new content and keeping up with customer demand – here are 7 alternatives to Netflix that could replace them in your life.

1. Amazon Prime Video

If you're a big fan of Amazon, Prime Video could be a good alternative to Netflix. For just $8.99 per month, you get all of your streaming services, but with access to millions of additional titles via Amazon Instant Video library. It doesn't have quite as many movies or TV shows as Netflix, but it comes close. You can watch on most devices, including game consoles and smart TVs. A great bonus is that if you have an Amazon Fire TV Stick or Fire TV device, you can use your subscription to stream videos directly from those devices too!

2. HBO Max

HBO is one of the most popular TV networks in existence, with mega-hits like Game of Thrones, Westworld, and Silicon Valley. But if you're not a cable subscriber, you can't use HBO Now to watch any of those shows. Instead, consider HBO Max as an alternative. It has all of HBO's most popular shows—from Girls to Big Little Lies—and a few new ones (like Euphoria) that might make you glad you cut out your cable subscription.

3. Hulu

Hulu isn't actually a streaming service in itself—it's a platform, like iTunes. Most shows on Hulu are free to watch if you have a TV provider login, but each episode you watch comes with an ad. If you don't have cable, or would prefer not to watch commercials, there are other ways to stream some of your favorite shows online!

4. Starz Play

The Starz Play streaming service is almost as old as Netflix, but it's more of an alternative to Amazon Prime because it offers a rotating selection of older movies and original programming. The benefit? You can get a subscription for less than half of what you pay for basic cable. If you don't watch much TV, or if you're looking for an affordable service that gives you easy access to old favorites, consider Starz Play.

5. Disney Plus

Some people are fans of Disney Plus, where they can watch their favorite Disney movies and TV shows on demand. The service boasts an impressive library of classic titles to choose from, as well as new releases. One Disney Plus subscriber says: I'm a big fan of Disney movies and I don't think any other streaming service comes close to what they offer. The quality is great and I can find just about any movie or show that I want to watch on it.


6. Paramount Plus

Although Paramount Plus isn't a streaming service, it is a great alternative to going to your local movie theater. For only $7.99/month, you can download and stream thousands of movies and television shows from Paramount Pictures; so there's no need to deal with extra charge for popcorn and sodas at your local theater.

7. Apple TV Plus

Apple's streaming service cost $4.99 per month. As a subscriber, you'll get access to original shows from A-list celebrities like Oprah Winfrey and Steven Spielberg. Apple TV Plus will also have some older programs from providers like HBO and Disney-ABC.
