I added Amazon prime about a year ago because I thought I must be missing something. So, between those two I have endless choices, and they both have some great original series and movies.

Netflix is 9.99 it was 7.99 for me til last year. and amazon I pay a yearly fee saving a few dollars, but it equals to about 10+ if you pay monthly. If I was choosing between them I'd choose Netflix. Amazon has a lot more subtitled movies and movies that I'd never watch.

And Netflix seems to me to be more user friendly regarding finding the movies you started and were interrupted, and searching for stars or movie titles. Amazon is to me more difficult to maneuver when I am searching, and you are dealing with all the various catalogs of things to buy, etc....just my opinion.
nope I still have it

See, I've had Direct Tv for like 15 years. Thought I would try something different so now all my internet and tv is through a local cable company. I had a DVR with DT and now I have TiVo and the genies for extra tvs.
I see that I have the option to sign up for either or both-Hulu and Netflix. I'm sure most of you guys have been using these services for years but with DT I just never explored other options.
I'm not yet familiar with the features of this TiVo but I'm not liking it really. So information regarding TiVo would be appreciated too. I think the cable company should provide a class!!! I would pay for it
So, ok, back to the original question: Hulu Or Netflix or both?? I don't see a function that allows me to see the cost of each.
I know you guys are like,"why don't you call your cable company???"and the answer is--I have! Too many times. Depending on which CS agent I get, I either learn something or hang up more confused than before.


thank,
Pippy
Huh?

Netflix owns.....

We have had Netflix about five years. And we enjoy it.

We also like Amazon Prime.

We had problems with Hulu, so no longer use it.

SlingTV seems to have the best selection of channels. But if they had the channels we actually watch, I would much prefer YouTubeTV simply for the DVR with unlimited storage! And they have live streams of the broadcast networks (ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX), which SlingTV does not, at least not in our area. Now the downside is I've read that with YouTubeTV, if the show is available on demand, even if you've recorded it on the DVR, it plays the on demand version which prevents fast forwarding through commercials. But they currently don't offer channels my wife and kids really need.

Netflix’ original content is worth the monthly fee alone. The only downside is they don’t have as many outside movies for streaming as the old days.

If we stop using these dumb services. They would just go away. Youtube was good enough. Otherwise uploading and sharing things back in the normal days of the internet is where it at. Thanks to Youtube and other websites. Everything is dried up.
