We have Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, and HBO streaming. We watch Netflix more than the others.

Netflix is OK, you could probably get some newer films and the occasional really good box set on other streaming services. But Netflix’s original documentaries, box sets and films are consistently good and are beginning to get recognition and awards. So it’s pretty good value for money, it’s stable, and has a reasonable back catalog of award winning films.

I've been surprised lately by some of the movies available on Hulu. They don't have a huge collection, but they seem to have some of the limited release movies that I never got a chance to see in theaters.

I love NETFLIX, and together with that I use Nord VPN, because in my country I cannot watch all the shows which is accessible for example in USA and with Nord VPN you can get access to it. Nord has good speed and relevant price. So it is a nice thing, if you're also addicted to NETFLIX, start to use VPN to access all movies

You sure are pushing "nord" alot, almost as if you were paid to say it in public forums. Hmmm.

I've been watching Prime more than Netflix for a while now. The Netflix "previews" are just too annoying, even with the sound off, so browsing is just too painful. I'll go back if I know exactly what I want to watch (ie new episodes). Otherwise I stick to Prime and Acorn.

Right Now Netflix is the best to watch movies and TV shows with no commercials. Looks like NBC and CBS and ABC/Disney and many more want to create, Streaming internet channels.

I wonder if those new websites will be commercial free. I will never sign up for a Streaming internet channels that requires you to watch commercials.

I am very sure I am not alone in this thinking.

Netflix is the new TV - lots of so-so schlock with the occasional gem. We used to watch it a lot, now not so much. Most of what they bill as "Netflix Original" is some sort of recycle from Europe. Each episode is 45 minutes meaning it was made for TV with ads to be inserted, but Netflix has no ads so it wasn't made for Netflix. All these foreign shows and Netflix won't tell you up-front if the show is in English or not. You have drill down into the details.

We have better luck with Prime these days.
