Look out Netflix and Amazon, there is a new kid in town and they are here to rival the streaming service of both Netflix and Amazon.
While both streaming services have different perks to offer, there are different things that you can benefit from each. If you’re an amazon prime member, you can watch tons of shows and movies– This includes Amazon originals, fan favorites, and hit shows.
The benefit with Amazon, you can also buy new movies and shows that you may not have access to on Netflix or with your regular cable provider.
Netflix has the benefit of having new content each month– Some content is better than others but still, there is new content constantly coming in on Netflix for a small price of $13.99 per month.
Hulu has the benefit of having “live” streaming the day after an episode appears on live television– They even have a “cable-like” option for those that want to have a cable like service without the cable contract.
The new content coming into these streaming services doesn’t always belong to that specific streaming service. There is contracting involved which makes it less appealing and less easier to obtain titles that many want to see, but these streaming services do not have the ability to give everyone the things that want to see.
But one streaming service that will give you access to shows that you were mad at Netflix taking away or upset that Hulu didn’t have it, will provide entire seasons for you to watch.
The titles that will be most watched on this new service?
- Blue Planet
- Doctor Who (From 2005 onward)
- Line of Duty
- Inside Number 9
- This Country
- Gavin & Stacey
- Bad Education
- Murder in Successville
- Him & Her
- Wolf Hall
- Peaky Blinders
So what is this service that we speak of? That will rival Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon when it comes to full seasons of shows that we want to see? BBC. British Broadcasting Corporation? Yep!
BBC holds the ownership to some of these titles so they are able to put full seasons, series even, up on their streaming service called iPlayer.
The only bad things about the Beeb putting boxset titles on their iPlayer? You’ve got to be in the UK to enjoy the rights of iPlayer. In their defense, Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon mainly being American companies often don’t give the hip, newer titles to regions outside of the US due to contracting.
The titles will be available to those in the UK only on iPlayer. For more information see BBC’s page. What do you think about the streaming service that BBC has put out? They’re top notch titles– Jealous??
