Netflix comes with an immaculate interface and is the largest streaming service in the world with more than 180 million paid subscribers worldwide. However, there are many alternate options as well. All of them come with their unique offerings and some of them are also available for free.
In this blog, we will be discussing some of the best alternate options for Netflix. Many people, however, still stick to cable TV services such as Spectrum packages. For them, the good news is that they can get access to both in double play and triple offers from their local providers.
Amazon Prime Video
Amazon Prime Video comes with a plethora of movies and TV shows. The service comes with its own unique shows including, The Man in The High Castle, Jack Ryan, etc. For a detailed list, visit their website. If you have stable internet then you can watch the shows in high-definition quality. Moreover, you can also watch episodes later on comfortably. It is quite a good alternative to Netflix.

For only $12.99 per month, you will get Amazon Prime Video together with existing services. You can also get free shipping services for certain products sold by the company. If you’re only subscribing to Amazon Prime Video then it will cost you $8.99 per month.
If you subscribe to HBO Max’s streaming service then you can watch hit shows such as Chernobyl, The Big Bank Theory, and Doctor Who to name a few.

Hulu comes with the new and the old and has something for everyone. You can watch shows here like Seinfeld and Futurama etc. and also get access to a few original ones. The best part, perhaps, about Hulu is that they air shows only after a day it has been aired on TV. Therefore, you don’t have to wait much longer for it.
Hulu offers packages from $5.99 per month to $11.99 per month. You get the option of adding certain channels such as Cinemax, Showtime, and Starz, etc. Live TV Channels are also available for subscriptions such as ABC, FOX, and CNN, etc. Hulu is a very good alternative to Netflix but it is only available in the US and Japan.
Crackle is a streaming service that is for free. You can watch popular Hollywood films, TV shows, and hit classics on this service. Getting access to this service will allow you to view anything from the available 150 movies and 75 shows.
Do note that since the app is for free, it comes with ads. There will be 30-second commercials when you click on a movie or TV show. In a TV show, you will have to watch three ads. However, there will be nine ads for a movie that is longer than 90 minutes.
CBS All Access
From NCIS to Young Sheldon, you will get tons of good content here. The variety on Netflix is more but if you’re into CBS shows then this is the subscription service for you.

Streaming services allow users to watch their favorite movies and TV shows over an internet connection. Make sure to get internet services from a reliable provider to enjoy a smooth connection. For regions without good ISPs or slow internet, cable TV such as Spectrum cable works well.
