Few other streaming services have produced as much quality original content as Disney+. With the classic name in the industry Disney retains its classic-ness through providing even better services. Although it is one of the newest contenders on the scene, the mix of amazing original content, and Disney’s huge library of classics, make the subscription cost seem minuscule. If you are a fan of Disney, Marvel, and Star Wars, then getting a subscription to Disney+ is an absolute no-brainer.

6. Amazon Prime

Amazon Prime has become one of the heavy-hitters in the streaming world over the last five years. Its progression has left the competitors in the market stunned for obvious reasons. Amazon’s massive production of insanely popular feature films and TV shows, such as The Boys and Invincible, has made the service a must-have for any pop-culture fan who’s serious about staying up-to-date with modern entertainment trends. The subscription cost can even be bundled with Amazon’s amazing delivery services to give you the most bang for your buck.

7. HBO Max

HBO Max benefits massively from the legacy of HBO. Without HBO, modern streaming would have likely never existed, as the channel was the first to prove how non-cable providers could craft Hollywood-level entertainment (and often with a more serious edge). HBO Max combines HBO’s still-developing catalog of mega-hits with the libraries of entertainment giants, such as Studio Ghibli, TMC, and more, to provide one of the greatest streaming services that have ever existed.

8. Hulu

Hulu remains the best way to stay up-to-date with cable network shows (like those that premiere on Cartoon Network, Comedy Central, and FX). If you have a Hulu subscription, the need for an actual cable subscription essentially becomes voided. The amount of amazing original shows and films on the streaming service makes the subscription price well worth it. If you love anime, Hulu also sports one of the most massive anime libraries outside of specialty services like Crunchyroll.

9. Apple TV+

Apple TV+ is one of the smaller streaming services around, but mega-hits like Ted Lasso have made it a valuable service to invest in. The service’s catalog is made more ambitious by its dedication to content, rather than the size of its selection. Apple TV+ also has one of the most refined, and populated rental libraries worldwide, allowing it to provide double value to its subscribers.

10. Mubi

Lastly, Mubi has brought the arthouse theater experience back to people’s lives that do not have the privilege of living in a large metropolitan area. By cycling through thirty films at any given time, with one leaving and one arriving every day, Mubi provides viewers with the hottest arthouse, classic, and cult entertainment on the planet. The global reach of Mubi is exploding right now, so it’s the perfect time to try out the service with one of its many free trials.
