It’s a tequila-soaked Saturday. A snowed-in Thursday. A lazy afternoon with a girlfriend or boyfriend or the Thanksgiving aftermath when your family bids the guests goodbye and relaxes in front of the TV. The list goes on, and on. It is unlikely that online film/TV providers will die out anytime soon when there is a seemingly endless number of situations for their product. Their popularity has soared so meteorically that some of their original programming rivals cable TV, and expressions like “Netflix and chill” become social media sensations.
You can’t go more than a few clicks before seeing an ad for an online film/TV provider and let’s be honest, while we won’t ever be truly satisfied with their roster of content such a service is simply great to have. But which is best? Below is a humble ranking put together by the team at BillNinja.com, based on pricing, library and ease of use.
Keep in mind this list concerns providers who offer a wide range of content outside their own programming, so HBO Go doesn’t count. If you do have HBO Go, I’m free on most Sundays and I always bring snacks.
