Netflix is arguably the most famous streaming platform to watch your favorite movies and favorite series on your television, on your mobile phone or on your computer. With more than 10,000 TV shows and movies, Netflix is now one of the most popular streaming services.
According to the recent report by Business Insider, Netflix is one of the top 10 Android apps which made around $97.8 million money in 2018. The service is paid. But, indeed it is worth to pay. Nevertheless, people still love to use their alternatives. That’s why I have made the whole list of Netflix alternatives. The list includes both paid and free sites.
Paid Alternatives to Netflix
Netflix subscription pricing is cheap. However, the main reason why people are finding it’s alternatives is to get other category TV series which is not available on Netflix. On another hand, because of not having a huge collection like Netflix, you also get certain cheaper subscription rates as well on other services.
HBO Now is an American subscription video-on-demand service operated by American premium television network HBO. You can catch all the exclusive shows from HBO on HBO Now website. The service was started back in April 2015. So, now it been four years, HBO offering this service on your doorstep.
This service allows subscribers on-demand access to HBO’s library of original programs, films and other content on personal computers, smartphones, tablet devices, and digital media players.
The service is available in U.S. territories. So, people who are living outside of the U.S. might get a little bit angry. But, no worries we have got more for you to catch on. Oh, sorry Game of Thrones lovers.
Amazon Prime Video
Amazon Prime Video is now widely used video subscription service. Since it offers low-cost subscriptions compared to Netflix, people go for Amazon Prime Video. Furthermore, with Prime account, you can also get access to the Amazon Prime Music, Amazon Prime Video and Amazon Prime Shopping.
With a lot of new releases available to buy, Amazon is now a good way to go for. You can purchase subscription just for $99 per year. Although, if you want, it also offers the 30-days of free trial on Amazon Prime Video. So, you can check their movie and series collections.
Stepping up – Showtime is the next in our list of best alternatives to Netflix. Showtime is divided into five different parts. It allows the user to watch series, movies, sports, documentaries, and comedy. Showtime offers some of the best movies and TV series to stream online.
It’s not a bad deal to go with Showtime. It has some fantastic movies like The Death of Stalin, Show Dogs, The Rider, etc. These movie collections make it a perfect place to watch movies.
Although, there is a vast collection of movies. I would definitely prefer you to visit Showtime website and take a look. The website offers a free trial that you can get to experience their service.
Price: $11 per month
Go to Showtime
Hulu Plus is better known for TV shows. You get some handpicked movie collection, but in my opinion, TV shows are far better. You get access to their vast collection of TV shows that would entertain you every day without any limits.
Hulu Plus offers two ways to go for premium — Hulu (No ads) and Hulu (with ads). Both packages cost $11.99 and $5.99 respectively. So, you do get ads in the premium subscription as well. There is no way to get access to their collections. However, you can check their services by taking a free trial of 1 month.
Vudu is another best way to go for Movies collection. If you want some best-handpicked movies for yourself you can go for Vudu. You get access to the vast list of Movies among them some of our handpicked exclusive to Vudu. Vudu does offer free service as well. You will find information below.
The paid service from Vudu has some fantastic movies like Mad Max Fury Road, Shazam, Marvel Avengers, The Angry Birds and more. Although, make sure Vudu doesn’t offer the subscription service. Vudu works on a bit different way. Either, you can own a particular movie which you want to watch or you can rent the movie.
Put simply, Vudu is an online Movie shopping website.

Free Alternatives to Netflix
01. Popcorn Flix
Popcornflix has full-length movies that mainly includes documentaries, foreign films, unique original web series, and a place that showcases the brightest filmmakers of tomorrow. Popcorn Flix is a free service that you can use. However, you won’t find any latest movies or series on this website.
Showbox is an Android application which allows the user to download movies and TV series on their Android devices for free. Also, it allows to play them online. The application contains almost every latest Hollywood movies and TV series that you can choose from the long list and download to watch it offline.
03. Popcorn Time
Popcorn time is also a similar application to the others we have seen above. The website doesn’t provide online streaming. So, you can download its official app for Android device or for your Windows computer. Since the service is providing free movies and TV shows, it becomes illegal to watch them. So, I prefer to use VPN service to hide your IP address.
04. Pluto TV
05. Tubi TV
06. Sony Crackle
