Christmas is getting closer, which means that people will start looking for Christmas content to stream on Netflix. Are you in the Christmas mood already? What will you stream on Netflix this Christmas?
I have written articles earlier years about the best Christmas movies available on Netflix. I will probably do so this year as well, but I am far from being in a Christmas mood at the moment, making it very hard to start looking for Christmas movies on Netflix. But, it is getting closer, and with Christmas markets opening all across Europe in the coming weeks, I guess the Christmas atmosphere will enter into my soul as well.
Until then, I guess I will have to stream some other great Netflix content. Lots of people are happy about the new season of Stranger Things. I am not a fan of Stranger Things myself, but since people love it so much, I guess I might want to stream an episode or two sometime soon.
The truth is, at the moment I am watching The Handmaid’s Tale on Hulu instead. I skipped this TV series when it was first released, but has since then heard so many recommendations, which I decided to watch it. So far I have only streamed the first two episodes of the first season, but I am headed in the right direction. But, what am I going to stream once I have finished the first season of The Handmaid’s Tale? I do not know yet, but maybe Vikings, another series someone recommended me.
What about Vikings?
The great thing about Vikings is that it can be streamed in my Netflix region. I do not even need to change my Netflix region using a VPN, so easy! In an ideal world, all content would be available in all Netflix regions everywhere, but that seems to be very far away from reality at the very moment.
Are you tired of Netflix? Tired of fighting with VPN blocks and proxy errors? Want to watch your favorite TV show online, right now? Here are some great alternatives to Netflix!
If you want to watch some fantastic TV shows or movies online, then Netflix is one of the best streaming services for this purpose. Here you can watch thousands of movies and TV series without commercials and without interruptions. The only problem is that lots of content is lacking from Netflix.
US Netflix has the biggest register and biggest amount of movies and TV series available. But, they have big lacks when it comes to the newest blockbusters. Canadian Netflix is much better on blockbusters, but they do not have as many TV series available. The differences are big, and what can you do if you want an alternative to Netflix where you can watch your favorite TV series, the newest TV series and the newest blockbusters whenever you want to?
There is no solution that will solve all your problems at once, but there are solutions that will solve maybe your number one problem!
Great alternatives to Netflix
Google Play Store
You might be surprised at this, but at Google Play Store you can get access to everything you want, whenever you want. The only requirement is that you need to pay for whatever you want to watch. But, if you are willing to pay for the newest episodes of Blindspot, or Captain America: Civil War, then you can get access to the films and TV series at once after they have been released. It is quite easy to get access to the US Google Play Store, and instructions can be found in this article.
Hulu is probably a streaming service you have heard of earlier. It is not as big as Netflix when it comes to movies, but it gets better and better. Their number one profile is TV series and there it is way better than Netflix. At Hulu you will get access to your favorite TV series and the new episodes just after they have been aired on US TV. So, it is not like with Netflix where you wait for a year or two to get access to an entire season at once. With Hulu you can follow the season as it develops with new episodes added every week. You can read more about how you can watch Hulu outside the US here.
Amazon Prime / Amazon Instant Video
Amazon Prime is quite similar to Netflix, with quite a lot of movies and TV series available. Full seasons are added at the same time, meaning that is works like Netflix, and not like Hulu. If you want to get access to something even faster, then you can buy it instantly on Amazon Instant Video. In that way this also reminds of Google Play Store. Personally I would prefer Hulu and Google Play Store, but that is of course entirely up to you! If you want to watch movies on Amazon from abroad, visit amazonprime.fromabroad.org.
If you are watching Netflix for the purpose of TV series, then you could consider watching them directly on the website of the given network instead. Why watch Blindspot and The Blacklist on Netflix/Hulu/Amazon when you can watch the episodes for free on the NBC website instead? Or why wait for a year for a new season of the Big Ban Theory to arrive, when you can watch the episodes live and on-demand on CBS All Access? You can find out more about these services at nbc.fromabroad.org and at cbs.fromabroad.org.
Now these are some great alternatives to Netflix. There are of course lots of other streaming services available, but these are some of the best options you have.
