There is no doubt that in this sense Netflix is one of the most popular platforms, and it is that since it landed in our country, the American platform has only grown in users subscribed to one of its plans. But this great demand means that today we can choose many other platforms where we can see all kinds of streaming content. These are some of the best alternatives to Netflix.
The truth is that the streaming market can become somewhat complicated or confusing due to the great diversity of broadcasting rights that exists today, which has caused certain platforms to bet on creating original content. Still, there are currently numerous alternatives to Netflix to be able to watch all kinds of streaming content.
Recall that the American platform has millions of users spread across the vast majority of countries around the world, allows you to view its content from any device, computer, television or even from your mobile wherever you are and offers three subscription plans for each you choose the one that suits you best.

Best alternatives to Netflix
It is undoubtedly one of the main alternatives to Netflix and one of its main competitors. There is no doubt that Game of Thrones made many people interested in the platform, although the truth is that it also has an interesting catalog. It has content for all tastes and ages and a parental control function to control what the smallest of the house can or cannot see.
In addition, it is possible to enjoy HBO content both on the web and through its mobile app, available for iOS and Android devices. The subscription mode offered by HBO allows you to try the platform for two weeks completely free of charge, being able to cancel the subscription at the time that we want. It allows simultaneous playback on two devices and the possibility of downloading our favorite series to later enjoy them offline when and where we want.
Amazon Prime Video
Along with HBO, Amazon Prime Video is another of the most popular Netflix alternatives. In this case, the online shopping giant offers access to its content catalog to all those who subscribe to its Amazon Prime service, which gives certain advantages when making purchases on the famous platform.
Prime Video also has its own productions and its contents can be accessed from the computer, television or any mobile device thanks to its app for iOS, Android and Fire devices. Among its features, it stands out that of being able to download content so that it can be viewed later without connection, it offers content in different qualities (SD, HD or 4K) and subtitles.

Google Play Movies & TV offers a large catalog of content with an option to rent and buy, so we will only pay for what we want to see. If it is something specific it is very good, but the truth is that if we are going to use it often, we will surely pay much more than with other similar services. The platform offers movies of all genres and children’s content classified by age.
As in the Google environment, Apple also has iTunes Video. A similar format, where we can have access to a large number of movies and series through a single rental payment, without subscriptions or monthly or annual fees.
In this case, it is necessary to download and install the iTunes client on the device where we are going to play the content, since it does not offer a web player to be able to see it from the browser.
