Cut The Cord: The Best Television Streaming Services
Amazon Prime Video
If standard cable programs don’t interest you, you might be more interested in some of the exclusive Amazon Original Series, like The Tick, The Man In The High Castle, and The Grand Tour.
Amazon Prime provides access to exclusive original content in addition to a large rotating library of popular television shows and movies. We have watched almost every season of Doctor Who through Amazon Prime, as well as quite a few movies over the years. The best part about Prime Video is that it’s included with your Amazon Prime membership. You don’t have to pay anything extra to access the library, and you have full access on your laptop, tablet, Amazon Fire TV, and most mobile devices.
Amazon Prime Video does not offer access to any of your local or traditional cable channels. Some of the programming from those channels might be available on demand, but newer content is never guaranteed. Also, the library is always changing, so there is no guarantee that a title will still be available later on if you don’t watch it immediately. We lost Doctor Who for at least a few months and have yet to catch up, but fortunately it wasn’t long before it was added back to the library.
Amazon Video is perfect for current Prime subscribers as well as anyone who is interested in the benefits that are associated with a membership: free 2-Day shipping, Amazon Prime Video, Amazon Prime Music, and exclusive access to sales and certain products, just to name a few.
