Streaming Wars – What Streaming Service is Right for You?

Article: Streaming Wars - What Streaming Service is Right For You
Not so long ago, we used to watch series, TV shows, and movies via dish cables but now, we are seeing the rise in cord-cutters. The presence of the internet has made it possible to watch all of these on smart devices like smart TVs, smartphones, tablets, etc.

The rise of different streaming services provides even more choices to these cord-cutters, with the number of streaming platforms continuing to increase. Earlier, there were limited choices for streaming services, but in 2020, you will find a big list of streaming service providers.

In this article, we will discuss the top streaming services by comparing the three most popular streaming services: Apple TV+, Netflix, and Amazon Prime.


Netflix is one of the best video streaming services. By getting a Netflix subscription, you will have access to unlimited streaming of TV shows, movies, comedy specials, and Netflix original programs. With Netflix, you get access to the huge library of movies and TV shows. Within your Netflix account itself, you can also create up to five different profiles, including children’s accounts with age-appropriate content. As Netflix’s algorithm learns what you like (and don’t like), keeping your profiles separate is a sure way of not messing up your recommendations.

Considering the vast catalogue that Netflix has to offer, its subscription is well worth it, with prices starting at £8.99 per month. Netflix also provides an excellent interface to its users and is available on a range of popular devices including Android, iOS, web browsers, Apple TV, Chromecast, Fire TV, Nvidia Shield, Roku, Smart TVs, PS4, Xbox and set-top boxes.

Apple TV+

If we compare Netflix with Apple TV+, the difference is Netflix mainly bolsters its content from big TV shows and movies from third parties, while Apple TV+ has mainly its original content. For those who love exploring and watching new TV shows and movies, this would be a great choice. Other benefits to Apple TV+ includes content quality and sound quality.

The pricing of Apple TV+ is £4.99 per month, or an annual subscription’s price is £49.99. In short, with the yearly subscription, you get two months of subscription for completely free. Just like Netflix, you can share your subscription with up to five members.

Amazon Prime Video

Amazon is the largest eCommerce store in the world. If you are someone who does most of their shopping online, the chances are you may already have an Amazon Prime subscription. The benefits of Amazon Prime membership are not limited to shopping. The benefits of Amazon Prime membership include one-day free shipping on purchases, a free Kindle book each month, and unlimited access to Amazon Music & Amazon Prime Video.

In the UK, Amazon Prime is priced at £7.99 per month or £79 for the year. Considering the price of the subscription, you are getting so many benefits. On the Amazon Prime Video platform, you have a wide content selection, including third-party and original content.

To summarise, all three; Netflix, Apple TV+, and Amazon Prime Video are different in some way. On Netflix, you will have access to the huge library of movies and shows. On Apple TV+, you will find all Apple originals content. With Amazon Prime membership, you will also get Prime benefits apart from access to different shows and movies.
