Case study: Rhys's experience
Living in a house with six other people meant having access to a wide variety of Internet TV services. I contributed three accounts — Amazon Prime Video, Netflix and VRV — but had access to Hulu and a few others.
While I definitely took advantage of Hulu at times, mostly for new Brooklyn Nine-Nine episodes, Netflix continues to be my go-to streaming service for movies. Meanwhile, Amazon Prime Video comes with my Prime subscription — which is a staple for grocery and food delivery — and hosts my favorite bad ghost-hunting shows.
Now that it’s just my partner, my cat and me, we kept the original three streaming services — Netflix, Amazon Prime and VRV. Hulu just didn’t offer enough variety or other perks to get us on board.
How do I choose a streaming service that best suits me?
Yes, we all know Netflix is the crowned king of streaming video on demand (SVOD). Their unrivaled library, global expansion, and quality exclusives have cemented their position at the top for many years now. But did you know that Hulu actually uses less data per hour, or that Amazon Prime Instant Video streams Comedy Central shows, like Key and Peele? It’s the little differences like these that will make you reconsider your streaming provider of choice. So sit back, relax and let us walk you through the many options available to you.
What is Streaming Video On Demand (SVOD)?
Internet TV, or SVOD, are provided by companies like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon. They allow us to stream the latest (and exclusive) content from your computer, Smart TV, smartphone, tablets, and gaming consoles. It’s a relatively new concept that allows for users to completely customize their viewing experience by allowing them to watch what they want, when they want. With a sturdy internet connection and a monthly subscription, you can get everything your cable provider already gives and so much more.
