With a long winter ahead for all of us, are there alternatives to the main video streaming services? Which one will cater to your needs the best?
Why not read on to learn about our recommendations for the best video streaming services.
1. Curiosity Stream
If you are looking for high-quality entertainment that is more fact than fiction then CuriosityStream is likely for you. It is produced by the same people who brought us the Discovery channel and follows their same educational tone.
Whether you are interested in ancient civilizations or the Coronavirus, these factual and educational programs will keep your brain stimulated throughout the cold winter.
Netflix is likely the most famous streaming service on our list. This ex-DVD distribution service has a famously large amount of content available for viewing. This includes archive films and series and also their own curated material.
Netflix has become famous not only for its content but for its language services, with many choosing it as a language learning resource.
Choose this service if you want an endless amount of content to watch this winter.
Hulu is your best source of cable TV shows, choosing to show fewer movies than Netflix. Because of this, it houses an extremely broad range of topics. Hulu content is more adapted to those who are looking to get away from cable TV but still want much of cable’s content.
Notable shows include Marvel’s Runaways, The Handmaid’s Tale, and Ramy. Choose this option if you want a series to keep your attention over the winter months.
4. YouTube TV
YouTube’s website is known for providing quality often over quality. This is also reflected in their TV channels.
YouTube Tv is essentially cable TV without cables. It offers a plethora of shows including live streaming of major news channels such as ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBC. However, it does not offer original specific programming as Curiosity Stream or Netflix does.
Choose Youtube if you want to have the news or TV shows in the background this winter.
Sling offers a similar service to YouTube but does so at about half of the price. For your money, you get access to more than 50 networks, including ESPN, TBS, TNT, FX, CNN, and many more. However, you do not get quite the same quality as YouTube which provides ABC and CBS.
Sling also provides a range of on-demand tv shows and movies. It is a nice compromise between a cable replacement service and Netflix.
Disney is a great and relatively new service that is aimed at young adults and children. Unlike other streaming services, parents can rest assured that their children can browse Disney+ without coming across any content that is unsuitable for children.
It comes with some big-name shows such as The Mandalorian and Forky Asks A Question. It also gives you access to many Disney, Pixar, and Marvel movies.
