If you have been considering getting a subscription for one of the many streaming services out there, you may be wondering if they are worth it and how do they differ from traditional television.
After all, if you have watched traditional TV for many years, will you really get any better of an experience with a streaming service?
You can watch shows and movies anytime — Most people think streaming services are much better than traditional TV as they do not have to wait for shows to air.
Instead, they can watch their favorite TV shows and movies at any time they like without having to wait for the latest episode.
You can binge watch TV shows — People love streaming services as they can binge watch all their favorite shows. This means you can start watching a show from the first episode and watch every episode in the series until the very end.
With traditional TV, however, you have to wait for each show to air so binge watching is impossible.
A huge selection of movies and TV shows — Most streaming services have tens of thousands of movies and television shows to choose from.
This means you never run out of content to watch, and you will always have access to new things to see.
New content is added often — All streaming services offer new content every month, with thousands of new shows and movies being added.
You will never be bored with streaming services, as you always have something new to watch. With traditional TV, on the other hand, the same shows are aired every week.
Downloading content — If you travel a lot, you do not often have access to your favorite TV shows while you are away with a traditional TV set up. This is especially the case if you travel overseas.
With streaming services, however, you can download any TV shows or movies you would like to watch while you are away and then take them with you on your mobile device. This means you can even watch them when you do not have access to the Internet, and makes them easily available when traveling on planes, trains or buses.
Access to international TV and movies — Unless you have a subscription to a traditional television station offering a lot of international content, you will not be able to access much of it on your TV set.
With streaming services, however, you will have access to a huge amount of TV and movies from other countries. All of it has subtitles in your own language, and so you will be able to see shows and movies you would never get on your traditional TV service.
Documentaries — While you can get documentaries on your TV sets if you have subscriptions to companies like National Geographic, with streaming services these documentaries are readily available.
All of them are also included in the regular monthly fee.
