Top 10 Netflix Alternatives 2022

Netflix has long earned the title of greatest video streaming provider. With growing competition on its tail, you now have more options for keeping yourself engaged than searching for high-quality TV series, movies, and other multimedia entertainment.

Coming up, I’ll show you five of the greatest Netflix alternatives you should try. In addition, I’ll propose stuff on those services that you should watch and let you know whether it’s free or paid. Let’s get this party started.

1. Amazon Prime Video

Like Netflix, Prime Video has its own set of high-quality original material, as well as a good selection of TV shows and movies from other providers that are not available on other platforms.

Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, starring John Krasinski from The Office, is one of our faves on prime video. Goliath, starring Billy Bob Thornton, and the Expanse were originally broadcast on the Syfy Network for three seasons before being taken over by Amazon in season four.

Apps for Prime Video and the majority of the other services on the horizon are available in the individual app stores for iOS, Android, Roku, Amazon Fire, Apple TV, and many others. If you have Amazon Prime, Prime Video is included at no added cost. As a stand-alone service, Prime Video costs $8.99 per month.

2. Hulu

If you’re a quart cutter looking for a low-cost streaming service, Hulu has a terrific selection of oldies. in addition to current TV shows from various networks that are available the day after they air.

They have collaborations with several of the main networks, including Fox, ABC, AMC, TNT, and The BBC, among others. In addition, Hulu boasts a good selection of unique programs known as Hulu Originals. Stephen King’s Castle Rock, the hugely contentious series The Handmaid’s Tale, and chance starring Hugh Laurie are all Hulu originals worth seeing.

Hulu’s basic plan with advertisements is $5.99 per month, their ad-free plan is $11.99 per month, and they also have plans with live TV starting at $50 per month.

3. Disney+

The family-friendly Disney Plus is likely the most dangerous competitor for Netflix management. Not only is the price of $6.99 about half that of Netflix with HD accessible, but Disney+ bundles with Hulu and ESPN+ are available for the same price as Netflix’s lowest-priced HD plan, which is $12.99 per month.

While its original content collection is limited at the moment, it does provide a significant quantity of premium material from Disney, Lucasfilm, Marvel, Pixar, and National Geographic. Along with select ABC Studio and 20th Century Fox series. Furthermore, all TV series and movies may be downloaded and viewed offline at any time. If you like Star Wars, you should watch The Mandalorian, a Disney+ original.

I noted earlier that you could save money by bundling Disney+ with Hulu and ESPN+. ESPN+ subscribers have access to exclusive live sports and ESPN+ Originals. Along includes access to the entire library of the excellent 30 for 30 documentary films on demand.

4. Britbox

Britbox is a service launched by the BBC and ITV that features current and previous seasons of many of their popular series, as well as originals that are only available on their service.

If you haven’t seen it before, Shetland has five seasons and is where you can find the first 26 seasons of classic Doctor Who.

After the free trial period expires, Brit Box offers a 7-day trial of their service. Britbox is available for $6.99 per month or $9.99 per year.

5. Crackle

In exchange for something entirely free. Crackle is a Sony ad-supported service that features a changing collection of TV episodes and movies. The majority of which are not the most recent and cutting-edge.

Furthermore, Crackle does offer original shows, some of which is not awful. For example, if you’re looking for a nice show to watch on Crackle, there are three seasons of StartUp accessible right now, with a terrific cast that includes Martin Freeman, Ron Perlman, and Adam Brody.

6. Fandor

If you’re a cinema thyle band or simply looking for a service, here is the place to be. You won’t find the most recent blockbuster high-budget films here; instead, you’ll find over 4000 indie classic, foreign, and documentary films, both new and old. If you’re seeking for recommendations created by their community and team, check out their movie list page.

Fandor was offering a 14-day free trial at the time, following which you could subscribe for $5.99 per month or $49.99 per year.

7. CBS All Access

If you’re a supporter of the CBS Network’s watered-down, predictable programming, CBS All Access provides more of the same, with back episodes of your favorite CBS shows like NCIS, The Big Bang Theory, and many others.

They also have original shows on their site, such as the reboot of The Twilight Zone, and Trekkies may binge watch Star Trek – Discovery and Star Trek – The Card.

CBS All Access is offered with a $5.99 per month subscription, and their free on-demand entertainment experience will cost you roughly $10 per month.

8. Acorn TV

This is similar to Britbox, which features programs from ITV, Channel 4, BBC Worldwide, and others. It’s a terrific place to locate old and current shows from the UK, Ireland, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, some of which are highly popular in their respective countries.

In addition, they have their own original programming. So, I’d definitely recommend watching Line of Duty, which currently has five seasons accessible to watch and has been renewed for a sixth. Acorn TV costs $5.99 a month and comes with a seven-day free trial.

9. Tubi

Tubi is another ad-supported free service like Crackle, but with a far larger selection. It currently includes over 15,000 TV episodes and movies in its library.

MGM, Warner Brothers, Paramount Pictures, Lionsgate, NBC Universal, and many other major companies have titles available. It was recently announced that Fox Corporation would acquire for $440 million.

As a result, I’m unsure how the acquisition will impact their library in the future. However, if you’re looking for free material, Tubi is worth a look right now.

10. Apple TV+

I hesitate to mention Apple TV+ because it is a newer service. Its collections are relatively modest, and yes, size does important when selecting a streaming service. However, what has been provided thus far has been adequate. With Apple’s big pockets, we anticipate improved quality in the future.

The morning program with Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Steve Carell is enjoyable, but the rest of the shows are mediocre. Especially the reboot of Amazing Stories, which isn’t all that great.

You can receive Apple TV+ for free for a year if you buy certain Apple gadgets. Otherwise, after the 7-day free trial, it will cost you $4.99 a month.

11. Curiosity Stream

Curiosity Stream is not just a wonderful deal at $2.99 per month, but it’s also a great source for wildlife and scientific documentaries.

12. Crunchyroll

Crunchyroll is a famous anime streaming service where you can watch for free with advertisements or upgrade to their premium plan to watch ad-free.

13. HBO Max

Within next months, additional Netflix competitors will join the battle, including HBO Max, which will combine all of HBO’s programming with other content from Warner Media, including the hit show Friends.
