Traditional cable is steadily falling out of favor as more people shift to an ever increasing number of streaming options. Not only can streaming save on the monthly bill, but customers also rely less on companies that are better known for poor customer service than the products they provide. Devices such as Apple TV, Roku and Playstation have enabled viewers to watch streamed programming on their televisions in addition to their computers and tablets.
Netflix is probably the best known and one of the most popular streaming services. It’s not a good solo option for people who are really invested in network programming that is currently running as it takes a season or two for those programs to make their way over. It is, however, excellent for getting multiple previous seasons of current and older programs, thousands of movies, and highly regarded original programming such as “Orange is the New Black,” “House of Cards,” and “Stranger Things.” The standard and premium subscription options, $9.99 and $11.99 respectively, allow for two or four screens to use the service at once. Additionally, each household user can create their own profile so that the suggestions and favorites are customized to each individual viewer. A one-month, free trial is also available.
