    Question Which one is better? Netflix vs Amazon

    I have yet to decide to which platform I should give my money to. Do you mind telling me which one you are using and why? It will be very helpful!

    Amazon is 30 bucks a year cheaper than Netflix (99 vs 131.88). But for me, Netflix just offers the better original material. And usually when I'm missing something, it's not on Amazon either - or at least not included for free in Prime.

    I did not make a decision on mobile use because I don't watch mobile.

    As someone who has both, I use Netflix more.

    If there's a series you NEED to have available, check which one has it. For example, Netflix has Cheers, Frasier, and Friends, and those are shows I watch a lot with my girlfriend because we both like them.

    Other than that, both platforms are trending towards original content. Their selection of older stuff is getting worse and worse, and it also changes. Neither of them have a good selection of classics or older tv shows. So, my recommendation is to target the platform that has original content that interests you the most. That's the only content that will reliably stay available with that service for the long run.

    Hmm... I see, So if I am looking for classics do you think I can find them on one of the platforms or I should search for another alternative way to watch them? I appreciate the original content that you are talking about, I've also heard that they produce some series and movies that can't be found on other platforms.
    I think I am more captured by Netflix's original content. I watched some trailers and I loved it! I think I will sign for the free trial and I will see how it goes. I might change my mind though. When I did my research, I came across a good comparison of Amazon, Netflix, and other platforms.
    According to it, Hulu is also a pretty good platform and is compatible with Netflix and Amazon. Has anyone tried it? Does it feature old movies?

    I have Hulu in addition to amazon and Netflix. Hulu has a lot of good classic old shows like "I love lucy", etc, and also features current shows airing on certain TV channels like NBC, ABC, etc even though they air the new eps a day after it airs on TV. also has a good selection of anime and short clips.

    Their movie selection can be pretty "Meh" unless you also like collection of 90's movies and other classic movies... they typically don't get new movies that you can rent like Amazon does.

    I mainly use Hulu to catch up on shows I missed, like Gotham, as well as to view my anime shows. I've watched some old 90's movies on there now and then however.
