Traditional TV channels and video rental stores are all but obsolete in 2022, and streaming services are all the rage. We’re all watching a bit more TV due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and it seems like everyone has Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime Video these days. But what if you can’t find the content you want on those? Read on below for all the best streaming apps that aren’t Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime Video.
Disney+ has been one of the hottest streaming apps since it came out in 2019. Between Disney’s already impressive line of classic movies and their acquisitions from Lucasfilm, Marvel, and Fox Studios, there’s enough content on Disney+ to keep you watching indefinitely. This is an especially great service if you have children, as nearly all of the offerings are family-friendly.
Paramount+ tends to fly under the radar when it comes to streaming services, but it’s actually been out since 2014. It’s a great streaming app if you love sports, as it carries most of the live sports available on basic TV. It also features popular shows like South Park, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and Criminal Minds, as well as everything from the Star Trek franchise. Best of all, plans start at just $4.99.
3. HBO Max
HBO Max is the streaming service of the long-popular HBO cable channel. HBO Max features all sorts of content, from media franchises including DC Comics, Adult Swim, and Cartoon Network, not to mention many iconic Warner Bros films.
With over 70 million current subscribers, HBO Max is one of the most popular streaming services available today. Plans start at $9.99/month, but HBO Max often offers a discounted $7.99/month promotional rate, so look out for that if you’re considering signing up.
Peacock is the streaming app offered by NBC and provides some of the best options for viewers who don’t want to pay for a streaming service. While a paid option is available, Peacock has over 40,000 hours of movies and TV on its free plan with limited ads. And for just $4.99 or $9.99, depending on your chosen plan, you can upgrade to one of Peacock’s premium plans including over 60,000 hours of video and live events like Sunday night football and WWE.
5. YouTube TV
YouTube is the most visited website on the internet, so it’s no surprise its streaming service is popular as well. Launched in 2017, YouTube TV offers over 85 popular live TV channels, including Comedy Central, CNN, ESPN, and many more. YouTube TV also allows unlimited recording and up to six users on one account.
Vudu is a streaming app built around a pay-to-watch service instead of a monthly subscription. Having been around since 2004, Vudu is a well-established service and has a huge collection of movies and TV shows. While there are some free movies and TV shows available on Vudu, it’s primarily used for renting or purchasing individual movies or shows. Vudu is a great option to download and use as a backup if the movie or show you want isn’t available on any of your other streaming services.
