    Default Streaming service better than Netflix?

    I have used Netflix for a while now and am getting tired of it. Is there anything out there that's comparable besides Hulu?

    There is not currently any legitimate (and legal) streaming service which offers more than Netflix and Hulu. Amazon Prime may be comparable but offers many of the same shows as Netflix.

    I don't find Amazon Prime and Netflix overlap that much. Most of the other free legal service I get on a Roku are very old shows and movies.

    I see it just as a matter of time, when more people stream, that new shows will be on there. Probably not nearly as cheap but I could see without having to maintain a distribution system like cables or a very expensive geo satellite, I would think for Under $40 a month they could give new and old shows.
    Except for the fact like say Comcast having a very significant share of NBC stock, they aren't interested. But otherwise to me it would make sense to just stream many of the major networks. Don't they have ads?

    Good to know. Do you think concurrent subscriptions to both Amazon Prime and Netflix are worth the added content?

    Maybe, depends on your budget. If $79 a year for Amazon because they only do it that way, annual payment, then yes. If you buy even one thing a month online, as I do because of fuel. My online buying used to be for odd ball luxuries for the most part. Now I buy more tools, garden stuff, in other words it's really replaced going to store that would have the same thing, about the same price if you balance shipping vs gasoline for me in the woods. Then add in Amazon streaming also gives you two day shipping free on selected items, and a good deal of the time it's the best deal. So if you divide out 12 months it's would be $6.60 a month or so if you paid monthly (again it's annual payment of $79). So I you order one thing a month, you broke even. If you are a Kindle reader, you get 1 free book a month.

    I do find overlap. I find overlap on just about all the services. I also find some TV shows, one has a newer season. If I had to choose one, Netflix would win hands down, in a microsecond. I don't do HuluPlus not because they don't deliver what they say, but don't watch their content. I thought maybe once new stuff is hard to find on Netflix (that is going to take awhile) I might try Hulu. Hulu is in a little turmoil I heard, probably isn't going away, good chance it changes. It has many newer TV which I wasn't watching on cable anyway! And all three on? That would be redundant but not totally. Also matters how much TV you watch. I don't need 3 at the moment. Plus the Roku gets a number of free channels, news, weather. Hope I covered things you thought about or maybe didn't.
