It seems that hard copies like DVD and Blu Ray are becoming a thing of the past in favour of the almighty streaming services, an app or software that allows to access vast libraries of film and TV wherever you want and whenever you like. There are plenty of different services out there though, each offering different collections and some even producing there own content to entice you into paying a monthly subscription fee for their services. In fact, these different libraries are often so enticing that people will subscribe to multiple services at once just to be able to watch all of their favourite programs. What’s truly great about them is that they aren’t limited to your TV, you can also access all this content via your laptop, you tablet or even your phone, meaning that even the most tedious of commutes can be filled with viewing pleasure (in fact, you’ll likely rather have a longer commute in this case). Like I say though, there are plenty of options and as such it can be hard to know which to choose, in order to offer you a helping hand we’ve made a list of the best services available in the UK for you to look at, though I wouldn’t blame you for choosing all three.
I have no doubt that you have likely heard of Netflix already, it’s perhaps the best-known video streaming service in the world and it isn’t hard to see why. Netflix has one of the biggest collections of Film and TV available, not to mention a wide catalogue of self produces shows, most of which are excellent (depending on your taste of course). The software houses a special algorithm that allows you to see shows that you’re more likely to enjoy so there should always be a new viewing on the horizon. It comes in three prices depending on your quality of streaming ranging from £5.99 to £9.99 so it’s a reasonable price no matter what you pick.
Amazon Prime is another excellent streaming service available for you and works in a very similar way to Netflix. In fact, they too make their own quality shows for their streaming service as well as having a top-quality bank of other films and programs. Perhaps the best thing about Amazon Prime is whole host of other perks you get with it, things like next day delivery from their site, free books and even some music to play through your Alexa service. The service will cost you £7.99 per month or an annual payment of £79, again great value.
Now TV is a service that is owned by Sky and essentially offers all the films and programs available through Sky TV for those that don’t have a satellite dish. You can also access live or on demand TV that would be available through this service too. The price here is more complicated, paying for separate packages as opposed to one service, it can also be quite pricey once added up. A standard entertainment package is £7.99 though and with this you’ll get access to a few channels as well as several TV Box Sets too.
