Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime; all video streaming services that offer thousands of programs at an instant.  But as we turn to these service to save money over traditional forms of television entertainment, you can quickly find your entertainment bill just as high as it once was with cable or satellite.  A couple of weeks ago we shared with you services that track all t eh movies that are available on these video streaming service.  One of them was called Reelgood and over the past few years it has been tracking the libraries of these services.  Now they’ve released an analysis of which streaming service gives you the most worthwhile shows and movies per subscription dollar. In other words, your biggest bang for your buck.  They took a look at the 20,000 most popular shows and movies among its users, minus any that were very poorly rated on IMDb. Between the top five streaming services of Netflix, Prime Video, Hulu, HBO, and Showtime, Reelgood found that Prime Video and Netflix were about tied for quality movies, with a thousand each, with Hulu coming in third at under 500. But for quality TV shows, Hulu won with 749, followed by Netflix at 495. Then Reelgood applied the cost of each service, to figure out which services offer the most “quality titles per dollar.” With price factored in, Prime Video wins at movies, and Hulu wins at TV shows. So if you can only afford one streaming service, and you only care about how many decent movies or shows you get, choose Prime Video or Hulu, respectively.
