The holidays have passed and Santa generously left a smart TV for you to use. You ripped open the box, placed the TV at just the right angle and bought batteries for that lovely remote. The only thing that is missing is a good streaming app. Read below to learn more about the essential streaming apps that will enhance your experience.
Netflix is the most popular video streaming service that is currently available on the market. The service boasts a generous collection of TV series, movies, anime and much more. A large part of the revenue is spent on developing exclusive titles that can’t be found anywhere else. Three subscription tiers are currently available: Basic for $8, Standard for $11 and Premium at $14 with the latter offering access to Ultra HD quality.
Hulu is a great service for those that love TV series and popular movies. A rich anime selection is also available. The service offers three different subscription tiers. The basic one will allow access to the library for $7.99. Those that wish watch their content without ads will have to go for the second one which is a bit more expensive at $11.99. The top tier asks for $39.99 but it offers premium features that include access to more than 50 live channels and DVR capabilities.
Many may confuse this one with HBO Go. HBO Now is a standalone service that is available for $14.99 per month. The service allows you to watch a rich selection of content, including the popular Silicon Valley comedy series. A stand-out feature is the ability to use a VR app in order to watch your favorite shows.
The service is included in the Amazon Prime subscription for free. Those that want to use the service without an Amazon Prime account are able to subscribe for $8.99 per month. The service offers a reasonable variety of content but only two devices can be used at any given time.
Grab some popcorn and enjoy!
