    Netflix is one of the popular options for streaming your favorite movie or show. However, it is not the only choice. With various alternatives, paid and free alike, the best one will vary from one individual to another.

    Pricing, programming originality, user interface, and on-demand content are some of the factors that differentiate one website from the other. What is your preferred service?

    One of the interesting components of this question that needs to be taken into consideration is that each of these streaming services will, at one time or another, feature content that you may see on another streaming service.

    So, the main thing to consider would be to take a look at the original content that each service is generating and decide what you like from that particular company and make your choice as to your favorite based on the service's original content and not what they are providing in rotating offerings.

    Is that because you find all the available services flawed?

    The present streaming services are quite like shops. When you get to a shop, the best you can get there is warm welcome and good products, that is it. I personnally feel the same with the least I have encountered (or use). Friendly interface, sometimes easy browsing through the application, once you start consuming, the application algorithm, based on your search, makes it easy for you to be alerted about any new stuff alike... that is definitely great.

    But, streaming services should be like your home radio or TV, and in a more perfect way. You should feel comfortable, not watched, free to taste anything you want, keep it, retaste later, modify it, play with it and share/invite people you love to come and do the same at your home (streaming app account) or theirs (their own streaming app account).

    Generally, these services lack a bit of ourselves in them.

    I get your point. However, I understand there are some streaming services like Sling allow you to select channels and customize the content to suit your interests.

    Netflix is definitely the best in my opinion. I believe this because they have the most popular shows that everybody is always talking about. All there shows are usually rated very well with 8s or higher. I personally would watch any show that Netflix produces.

    I am a bit behind in the streaming service game. Recently I was able to get a Roku and it changed my life. So far, the best streaming service is either Netflix or Amazon Prime. They both have a lot of quality shows. Plus, they are both reasonably priced.

    I am thinking that I would also like to try some other ones. I noticed that Sling is almost fifty dollars a month. That is a bit pricey for my taste. But, I just want to know what they have to watch that makes it so expensive. No free trial either.
