NETFLIX: Still No. 1 Best Streaming Service so far, But for How Long?

What comes first to your mind when you hear the word “Netflix”…..movies, binge-watch and lots of movies to choose from….., the streaming service that changed the world forever.

From casettes to CDs and Cinemas to Cable/Satellite tv to sitting in your couch and clicking a button, lol. Or holding your phone, opening a black app with a red word.

A streaming service is basically a service that allows one person or thousands of persons across the globe to play movies or programmes on TV, phones directly from the internet, (cloud server) without needing to download them.

Netflix is one of the major streaming service that offers wide range of contents (movies, documentaries, cartoons, award-winning TV shows and more to subscribers via internet-connected devices, for a monthly fee.

The last 5yrs, it seemed like Netflix controlled the whole streaming industry, in terms of movies and co. Literally everybody was focusing only on Netflix….. household upon household made Netflix a part of their family routine for entertainment. Until recently, a massive emergence of streaming service platforms “HBO Max” and “Disney+”brought massive competition to Netflix’s dominance. This emergence definitely caused by the covid-19 pandemic which saw Cinema businesses worldwide drop massively while Netflix (indoor service) skyrocketed.

Basically Marvel started withdrawing their contents from Netflix into Disney+. HBO Max had a deal with DC to begin showing DC movies weeks after it’s Cinematic Release date eg: The Batman (2022), Wonder Woman 2, Zack Snyder’s Justice League and many more. This emergence disrupted the market, tho Netflix still has a major share.

In a recent survey conducted; asking movie streaming users which of the platforms would they MUST have? And which is their favorite streaming service provider?

Netflix won as the most “MUST have app” but was no.4 as favorite streaming platform…..with HBO Max topping the list as favorite streaming platform for users, Disney+ in 2nd. With Amazon Prime also in the competition, as well as Apple TV+, Hulu, Peacock, Paramount+ …..the time of Netflix being no.1 in the streaming business might soon be over!!!

A video streaming service is an on demand online entertainment source for TV shows, movies and other streaming media. According to Technology360 media, the best 10 On-Demand Streaming Services are:

1) Netflix: A household staple known for its variety of on-demand titles and original content. Popular Netflix titles include “Ozark,” “Bridgerton,” and “Stranger Things.”

2) Amazon Prime Video: Owned by online retailer Amazon. If you have Amazon Prime, then the video streaming service comes with the subscription as a bonus. Current shows include “Outlander,” “The Boys,” “Hunters,” and “The Man in the High Castle.” You can also find older series like “Downton Abbey” and movies like “Coming 2 America.”

2) Disney+: Disney is the most family-friendly streaming service in our rating. It’s home to blockbusters, like “Star Wars,” “Avengers Infinity War,” and “Black Panther,” and musicals, like “Hamilton.”

4) Funimation: Owned by Sony Pictures, Funimation is a long-standing name in anime. Its line-up focuses solely on anime content and includes the option to buy tickets to in-theater shows. Top shows available on Funimation include “Dragon Ball Z,” “My Hero Academia,” and “Attack on Titan.”

4) Hulu: Disney-owned Hulu ties at No. 4 in our rating and is another brand with longevity in the streaming business. It’s also one of few companies to offer both on-demand and live streaming services (Hulu + Live TV).

4) HBO Max: In 2020, HBO bundled all its content into the HBO Max streaming service. Max includes all of HBO along with classics, movies, and original shows.

4) Peacock: The service includes original shows, episodes of NBC shows, and live sporting events. Tune in to Peacock to watch “The Office,” “WWE,” “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” and “The Blacklist.”

8) Crunchyroll: This anime streaming service has been around since 2006 and includes a free version. It also offers three paid plans that fans can choose from. Check out Crunchyroll for episodes of “My Hero Academia,” “Naruto,” “Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood,” and “The Perfect Insider.”

9) Paramount+: CBS All Access is now Paramount+. The streaming service offers live sports, news, and series. You can watch shows like “The Twilight Zone” reboot, “NCIS,” and “Young Sheldon.”

10) Apple TV+: Offers mostly original movies and TV shows, along with a limited selection of licensed shows. Subscribe to Apple TV+ to catch shows like “Ted Lasso,” movies like “Wolfwalkers,” and documentaries like “The Elephant Queen.”

Despite slowing subscriber growth due to increase in subscription fee, the world’s first major streaming service remains no.1 favorite choice thanks to its huge library of constantly refreshed content and its easy accessibility across different devices. Netflix won 44 Emmys in 2021, more than the next two media companies combined. 

All of Netflix’s plans are ad-free, a feature which stands out from other streaming services. However, Netflix doesn’t offer the choice to bundle its plans with other services, unlike Hulu and Disney+.

With the other top streaming services “up-ing” their game by improving their library, UI interface, lower subscription prices, understanding their subscribers better and going mostly for quality instead quantity….it’s only a matter of time before Netflix is dethroned as the no.1 Best Streaming Service worldwide.
