If you are now stuck at home like most people, you are going to want to make sure that you have plenty to watch inside. Here are six streaming platforms that are totally worth your money.
Personally, I would say that hulu is the streaming platform that I use the most because it is so great, sorry Netflix! Something that I really enjoy about hulu is that if you are watching a show that is currently airing and you miss it while it is on tv, it will be on hulu the next day, I mean how much more convenient can it be? Besides the fact that Hulu streaming thousands of shows that are and aren’t currently airing on tv, hulu includes hundreds of original shows and movies that you can watch as well. Some of my favorite hulu shows are: The Handmaids Tale, Marvels Runaways, The Mindy Project, and Veronica Mars. For a small fee of $5.99 a month, you can have thousands of shows and movies at your finger tips.
Netflix has become a basic household necessity for just about everyone these days, so it may not seem like I need to sing its praises, but still I am up for it. For me, Netflix is one of my most used streaming services, its definelty a need, especially if I am going to be stuck inside for months. The first thing that I really like is all the shows that Netflix offers, you can binge for days with the amount of content that they have. Also, the Netflix originals are spectacular, Netflix offers hundreds of original tv shows and movies for viewers. Some of my favorite Netflix originals are: The Haunting of Hill House, Virgin River, Spinning Out, and Disenchantment. Another thing that amazing me is the original Netflix movies because these movies are blockbuster level and you don’t even have to leave the house to see them! You can stream all these movies and shows for a price of about $10 a month.
Disney Plus is one of the newest and most exciting streaming services that we have had in a while. This streaming platform released this fall and it has kept millions of people thoroughly entertained. This streaming service includes all things Marvel, Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, and National Geographic. This gives you almost all you could ever wish for on a streaming service. There is no better way to spend your new quarantined lifestyle then inside having a marvel or star wars marathon or even reliving your childhood favorites through Disney movies. For me, I have been utilizing Disney plus by watching all the marvel movies in order, watching a marvel movie a night! Another aspect of Disney plus that I really enjoy is the original shows and movies that they stream. For example, I absolutely love High Schol Musical the Musical The Series that brings back the nostalgia of my late/early teens. I also couldn’t stop myself from checking out the Mandalorian, I mean come on who can’t resist the adorable Baby Yoda. My most recent Disney plus stream was the Disney movie Onward, which Disney plus graciously added to their streaminf only a month after it came out to theaters. Disney plus is here to offer us a bit of entertainment relief during these times and for just $6.99 you can stream Dinsney Plus yourself!
If you are a Amazon Prime member then you know that there is more to that perk than the one/two day delivery. With amazon prime you also have the ability to log onto their streaming service and watch as many shows and movies that you want. Amazon Prime offers viewers a wide variety of shows that are currently and no longer airing as well as movies. My favorite thing about amazong prime is their original shows and movies because with those you are really getting the bang for your buck. Amazon prime gives its viewers Oscar worthy movies and shows that have indeed won several Emmys. Some of my favorite original shows include: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, Modern Love, and Good Omens. Some of my favorite movies that you should check out are: Late Night, The Aeronauts, Brittany Runs a Marathon, and The Report. For just a little fee of $12.99 you will have thousands of things to stream and the perks of one/two day shipping.
Other than Disney Plus, Apple Tv has been one of the newest streaming platforms to come out this fall. One thing I will say is that Apple did not come to play with this streaming service, they came to win. Apple tv released wonderous new tv shows to stream with star studded casts. Some of my favorite shows from Apple Tv include: The Morning Show, Dickinson, For All Mankind, Amazing Stories, and Truth be Told. This are some truly great shows and they have even more that will be streaming soon. Some good movies on there to check out include: Hala, The Banker, The Elephant Queen. Apple Tv will be your new guilty pleasure and you wont even mind that you are stuck inside. For just $4.99 a month you can stream apple tv!
I know that there a lot of streaming channels to choose from, so it is hard to choose just one, but I think that my favorite of them may just be Starz. Starz has been streaming some of my favorite shows to this day. For example, the show Outlander is an all time favorite of mine, with a steamy cast that is definitely worth the hours of your time. I mean honestly, how can you say no to watching Jamie Fraser on your tv screen! Another good show that I like to watch is The Spanish Princes, that is just a limited series, but will be streaming new episodes soon. I truly think that period piece shows are a real guilty pleasure, truly worth the watch. Honestly, if you think you go it bad now, people back then didn’t even shower and they had to wear corsets! Not only does Starz have magically shows, they also include hundreds of your favorite big screen movies that you can now stream on the app. For just $10.99 a month you can stream all the Starz shows and movies to your hearts delight!
