Netflix

Being the world’s largest streaming service, Netflix has become the people’s go-to choice for streaming. You can thank Netflix for introducing people to binge-watching shows to the brink of dawn. Not only has Netflix given us the opportunity to watch these iconic shows, but they have also produced originals ranging from movies, series, and documentaries that have been known for their widespread popularity & to be critically acclaimed.

If you are new to streaming, Netflix is a great choice to watch fan favorites and trending films with their Top 10 list that updates daily.

 

Hulu

Keep up with all your favorite cable shows on Hulu! Having a subscription to Hulu will allow you to keep watching your shows without a cable connection.

If you are interested in watching your shows in real-time, Hulu provides an additional Live TV package. Hulu TV allows you to stream your favorite channels similarly to how they are broadcasted to cable. Adding this Live TV increases your subscription cost but provides a great alternative to traditional cable TV.

 

Amazon Prime Video

Do you already have Amazon Prime for 2 Day delivery on all your Amazon purchases? Included in your subscription is Amazon Prime Video! If you’re a film fanatic, Amazon Prime is an excellent choice as it has many movies compared to the other platforms. Although many are available within your Amazon Prime subscription, Amazon gives you an option to rent and buy movies and stream all from the ease of the same app.

 

Disney Plus

Stay young at heart with all of Disney’s movies and shows, all on its own platform. Ranging from the classic Micky Mouse cartoons, 90’s classics, and brand-new films & shows, Disney has all of its movies all in one place.

On top of all your favorite Disney films, you’ll find movies from the Marvel & Star Wars franchises along with Pixar Animations & National Geographic!

 

ESPN+

Keep up to date on all of your sports with ESPN+. ESPN+'s sports content is split into three content areas: live sports, ESPN+ Originals, and ESPN shows. With on-demand streaming, you'll be able to cheer on the NDSU Bison football team as they move towards the end of the season.

YouTube TV allows you to watch live TV much lower than any cable competitor's price. As mentioned above, Hulu also includes a Live TV service just like YouTube TV. With over 99+ channels, YouTube TV provides an option compared to cable television.
