Netflix, Amazon Prime Instant Video, and Hulu each offer a massive amount of on-demand content at a relatively low monthly cost. These services are a fantastic way to stream movies and TV shows for the entire family, increasingly becoming part of an affordable alternative to the bloated pricing of cable and satellite subscriptions. For some cord-cutters, a mix of two — or all three — of these services is the best solution. But if you’re trying to figure out which streaming service to use while sticking to a frugal entertainment budget, check out our constantly updated breakdown of each of them to find out which one rules in each of a range of categories, and which is best for you.

Amazon prime vs netflix
We’re in the middle of summer-movie season, but while you may want to catch splashy, big-screen-friendly movies like The Incredibles 2, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and the upcoming Ant-Man and The Wasp in theaters, there’s also still plenty of new programming on your streaming service of choice. This July, Netflix is adding a sixth season of Orange is the New Black to its lineup, as well as Extinction, the new science fiction / horror film from Hounds of Love writer-director Ben Young. The original Jurassic Park trilogy will also be arriving on the service as of July 1st, and for something more cerebral, Spike Jonze’s excellent AI love story Her will come to the service on July 29th. Amazon Prime will once again add a number of legacy movie titles to its lineup, including Steven Spielberg’s A.I.

Next month is April, which means it’s time for the second season of HBO’s Westworld to arrive. Yes, there’s also going to be some “movies” at your local “theater” that may be considered “important if you want to stay remotely in touch with mainstream pop culture,” but mostly it’s going to be about Westworld. Okay, maybe I’m just enthused thanks to the show’s latest trailer. But either way, only two episodes of HBO’s sci-fi drama will be released during April, which means you will have to find other things to watch — and thankfully the host of modern streaming services will be there to help. Netflix will be adding its own sci-fi series to the mix on April 13th, with the debut of its Lost In Space reboot, as well as releasing the Jay Z episode of David Letterman’s new talk show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction on April 6th. The service will also be releasing the Sundance drama Kodachrome on April … [Read more...] about Everything coming to Netflix, Amazon Prime, and HBO Now in April

Amazon Prime is Amazon’s deluxe subscription model that initially only offered free two-day shipping on select items when it started. However, it has since expanded quite a bit into a slew of varied services that run the gamut from books to movies to, yes, additional shipping perks. Sign up for Amazon Prime (free 30-day trial) This gradually increasing range of services was precipitated by a price hike in 2014 from $79 per year to $99 per year. In response to this adjustment, many Prime users really started to wonder if it was worth keeping their membership.
