The Top 4 TV Deals Besides Netflix

The Top 4 TV Deals Besides Netflix
Featuring thousands of shows and movies on its site, Netflix has taken the streaming world by storm since its founding in 1997, with nearly 7.5 million customers joining its customer base in the first quarter of 2018 alone.

However, while other TV streaming sites and bundles haven’t quite reached an iconic ‘Netflix and chill’ status, there are still some TV viewers that find themselves dissatisfied with what the popular streaming site alone can offer. Thus, many people have started looking into alternative options for streaming their favorite TV shows and movies online.

Luckily for them – and for you if you have similarly found the perks of Netflix alone to be underwhelming – there are other options.

Why Are Viewers Turning to Alternative TV Deals?

Although still able to boast its success as the #1 streaming platform worldwide, services and TV deals beyond Netflix have been gaining popularity in recent years as well.

This may be due to the increasing cost for most Netflix membership plans, which has made deals like Verizon triple play – which bundles gigabit connection, TV, and phone services – a relatively budget-friendly option to turn to.

Some people are also just ready to find some new content that hasn’t yet been added to world’s favorite streaming platform. While Netflix still has an impressive offering of media for viewing, for those with more specific tastes, or who are otherwise up for trying out the two to four-week trials offered by some popular alternative streaming networks, TV viewers have no shortage of television options.

In addition to Verizon’s Fios triple play deal, listed below are four other top contenders gaining popularity as Netflix alternatives.

Top Alternatives for TV Deals


1. Amazon Prime Video

Amazon Prime Video is just one of the perks Amazon Prime members can gain access to when signing up for their prime membership account. However, the video service – now #2 to Netflix for streaming – can also be bought alone, without the prime membership, at a cost of $8.99 per month.

Amazon Prime Video features TV shows from dozens of channels, movies, as well as original content such as the popular shows “Man in the High Castle” and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”.

2. Hulu

Hulu is another top TV and movie streaming platform, as a viewing option very similar to Netflix. Starting at $7.99 per month for its lowest-cost subscription (with an upgraded commercial-free plan available for $11.99) the pricing is similar to its top competitors.

One perk of this streaming platform is its feature of offering episodes of shows currently on air, typically allowing access to new episodes one day after airing on their respective networks. Hulu also now offers a Live TV package (at a pricier $39.99 per month), which allows users to live stream 50+ top live and on-demand channels, such as ESPN and popular news channels.

3. Acorn TV

For TV viewers in the United States who can’t get enough of the most popular British dramas and comedies, Acorn TV is an increasingly popular American streaming service providing viewer access to a myriad of TV shows from the UK as well as other countries.

At $4.99 a month, it can be an economical, commercial-free, on-demand TV deal for those still reeling over the end of Downton Abbey and who are looking for a new engaging British show to incite the same excitement.

Acorn TV is available to be streamed on several platforms, including Roku devices, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, or simply your iPad or computer.

4. YouTube TV

Available at $35 a month, YouTube TV is a recent premium streaming service offered by YouTube featuring cable network streaming, live broadcast television, as well as shows from other popular entertainment, news, and sports networks. In other words, it’s basically a cable replacement, which might better explain the cost.

YouTube TV can be viewed on Google Chromecast, Android and iOS devices, tablets, and an Apple TV.
