Yet another free video streaming service that features Hollywood movies and a variety of shows. Some of the many genres available include action, thriller, drama, and comedy. You also get access to the ‘Watch Later’ button using which you can resume watching a show or movie from where you left.

Personally, I’m hooked to Hulu and the reasonable Spectrum TV packages and prices have been my anchor – especially when you are on a budget. However, I also keep checking other streaming services mentioned above now and then. I believe that one should try different things. I hope you find a favorite streaming service for yourself from the list given above.
