With an increasingly complete and, at the same time, more segmented entertainment offer, with new providers, series and movie lovers are wondering what streaming to hire today? With the recent launch of Disney Plus in Latin America, which achieved a massive success, plus the already established Netflix and the good response of Prime Video, it is difficult to choose one.
To them, Apple TV + is also added, perhaps the one with the least impact among streamers, since it has a small catalog compared to its rivals, although its proposals are 100% original, they were never seen on any other platform and they have with renowned actors, actresses and directors.
Depending on the budget of each family, you will have to choose one or the other, and if you allow it for at least two.
The good news is that with the exception of Netflix, they all offer a free trial period. Apple TV + and Disney + give us seven days free, while Amazon Prime Video is a bit more generous, with 30 days to scrutinize the content.
In our understanding, Disney Plus is almost indispensable. On the one hand, it has one of the most competitive prices on the market and has the amazing catalog of Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, National Geographic, Marvel and some Fox content (which will no longer be called Fox, but for better understanding, we’ll leave it as Fox), including some seasons of The Simpsons. One of the strengths of Disney Plus is the series “The Mandalorian”, based on the “Star Wars” saga, as well as exclusive premieres of films such as “Mulán” and “Soul”, which will be added in 2021, expected series Marvel as “Loki” and “Falcon and the Winter Soldier.”
Between Netflix and Prime Video is perhaps the biggest struggle from which to choose. Our preference is for Prime Video. Although the Netflix catalog is larger, Prime Video, owned by Amazon, offers series and movies that one cannot find on any other platform such as “24”, “The Good Wife”, “The Good Fight”, “Will & Grace », In addition to original quality productions. And, for this year, they will have the launch of the Diego Armando Maradona series, which will add many followers.
Netflix began to produce more original content, but it was losing its quality, although it still has more than attractive bets. Here it is a matter of taste. Surely, many will prefer Netflix, which is not bad. But, as we indicated above, it is worth trying Prime Video for 30 days for free and see the difference.
In relation to Apple TV +, it is difficult to recommend it as indispensable. There are well-known series like “The Morning Show”, “See”, “Defending Jacob”, “Ted Lasso” or “For all Manking” which many will find attractive, but the catalog is quite limited. And at $ 4.99 per month, it’s hard to justify the equation.
Subscribing to one or two is almost necessary to replace traditional cable. But do not forget that in 2021, new services such as HBO Max and Paramount + (relaunched) will arrive, which will also require our budget and will also have more than attractive content.
We remember: Netflix no longer offers the possibility of trying the service for free.
