The Best Streaming Sites On Internet

stream things online

I have found the best streaming sites online! I know I sound a bit enthusiastic about it but please bear with me. This is something new for me and I am loving it!

Before you roll your eyes, I do know about streaming sites. I have heard of Netflix. However, I never really got the chance to try them all out. And now that I am retired, I have all the time in the world to choose movies and TV series that I want to watch. It’s a great way of catching up on all the films and series that I missed!

My top streaming sites

We all have our own list of the best streaming sites and I want to share my list. Actually, there are just three that I am currently looking into.


Obviously, Netflix will be the first. This was the only one that I knew about when I started streaming films and series. For less than £9 a month, I get to watch from a wide library of films and tv series. I would have wanted to have the ability to download videos for offline viewing but this is not allowed here – which is sort of a turnoff for me.

Amazon Prime

This is the next option that I have. For only £6, I can watch films and series on any device. What I like about it is that it allows offline viewing – as long as I store it on my iOS device. This is probably the most comprehensive streaming site that I have found compared to the others.

Apple iTunes

Since we are mostly Apple users, I have tried streaming from this platform. The price you pay is per movie or series that you will watch. I like how it has most of the films and TV series that I want to watch. I like how they will let you buy or rent. There are some that I only want to watch once while there are other films that I want to watch several times.

Other streaming sites

In the UK, there are other sites that will allow you to watch films and TV shows online. Some of them have different subscription options in varying prices. Let me discuss them here so you can choose which of the best streaming sites work well for you.

Sky Now TV

If you are a fan of Game of Thrones, this is what you want to opt for. You get to choose the type of service that you want to subscribe: Sports, Entertainment, and Movies. The access to shows will depend on what you will subscribe into. Sports is the most expensive of them all with an option to subscribe only for the day – but it will cost you £6.99 (£31.99 a month).


What is great about this option is it also allows you to buy or rent. It does not have subscriptions – just a pay-as-you-watch policy like Apple iTunes. They allow offline viewing so it is a great alternative to the Apple version. They also have some free content – which is actually quite great.

Google Play

Finally, you have this option from Google. It is another pay-per-view option and has a more extensive device options compared to Apple iTunes. You can also opt to rent or buy – depending on how many times you want to watch a film or tv series.

What do you think? Have you chosen among the best streaming sites listed here?
