Best Streaming Service Of 2022: Netflix, Disney Plus, HBO Max, Hulu, Starz And More

id="article-body" class="row" section="article-body" data-component="trackCWV">






















In the past three years, we've been given more TV streaming service choices than ever. That means your streaming subscription budget is likely changing all the time, depending on which services are worth your time and money. And the competition for your eyes and dollars is fierce.

Your choices likely depend on which original shows and movies you want, how important a back catalog of older streaming TV shows is to you, whether you need to consider kids, roommates or sports fans -- and your budget. Some of these services offer cheaper options (like Peacock's free tier), while others come essentially free as part of a bundle (like ESPN Plus in the Disney Bundle). With Netflix's price hike in effect, options such as Prime Video and Starz may be worth a second look. 

We've reviewed each of these streaming services individually, and assigned numeric ratings based on content, app design and features and overall value. Certainly, some personal preferences regarding content mix influence our decisions, so note that if you love a specific show or style of show, you may have a different favorite.

With that in mind, here's the list, ranked in order starting with the best streaming services first.

For $7 a month (with ads), Hulu is a perfect complement and counterpoint to Netflix. Its channel lineup has a huge variety of familiar shows from networks like ABC, Fox and CBS that you can watch soon after they air (unlike on Netflix), as well as a growing catalog of its own critically acclaimed original series like The Handmaid's Tale and PEN15. If you have $7 per month to spare and don't mind trading a few ads for a wealth of TV options, Hulu is a no-brainer. You've also got the option to , or a wesite on live TV streaming for $70 a month for a full cable replacement.

a website Max is a well-designed app full of popular TV shows and movies. It has HBO's entire library, DC Universe titles, along with favorites such as Friends, Rick and Morty, Sesame Street, the Lord of the Rings movies and almost every film. In 2021, it was the only streaming service to debut movies on the same day as theaters at no extra cost, including Dune,  and a webste Richard. That won't be the case moving forward, but it's still the primary destination for new Warner Brothers-owned feature films. It's not Disney Plus, but HBO Max has a solid streaming collection for kids too, with the ability to control ratings on kids' profiles better than most other services. 

At $10 a month, it sits next to Netflix at the higher end of the streaming spectrum, and if you prefer the ad-free experience, the cost jumps up to $15 per month. In general, HBO Max is ramping up its new originals, and we expect that to increase over time. Series such as Hacks, Peacemaker and The White Lotus have viewers excited for the platform's growing slate. Though its 8.0 rating is neck-and-neck with Prime Video, HBO Max consistently drops new releases, possesses a large back catalog and offers smooth, user-friendly features.

Priced below Netflix at $9 per month, Starz provides a unique but expanding library of films and original shows. With more than 800 movies in its bank that range from '80s classics to Westerns to the hottest new Sony releases like , the streamer houses every genre in its catalog. But Starz has been inching its way into the prestige TV market with a quality lineup of original programming.

It's best known for the Power universe, Outlander, The White Queen, and P-Valley, كورة لايف and the network stands apart by promoting diversity and representation in its originals, elevating the voices of women and people of color. As a Lionsgate-owned company, Starz also airs the studio's movies and shows -- like John Wick and Saw. While you can't stream feature films as day-and-date releases, Starz recently inked a deal with Universal to broadcast its 2022 and beyond lineup. That includes upcoming flicks such as , Halloween Ends, Minions: The Rise of Gru and Oppenheimer. For $9 a month, the Starz app gives you unlimited downloads, early access to new TV show episodes, and four simultaneous streams, all with no ads disrupting your viewing experience. Whether you want to stream blockbuster movies, documentaries, original series, or something for kids, Starz is worth the cost.

ESPN Plus is a great streaming service for the tried-and-true sports fans, especially those who follow the a website MLS and UFC. This is because ESPN Plus is the new home of all out-of-market National Hockey Leagu games, while also offering out-of-market MLS soccer matches, along with those from other soccer leagues around the world. It hosts exclusive UFC matches and pay-per-view events, such as UFC Fight Night and championship bouts (for additional fees).

Hockey and MLS fans who root for teams that aren't based where they currently live need ESPN's streaming service to watch their team's action. The service won't be of much use, however, to fans of the home teams. Local games are blacked out on ESPN Plus so you'll need access to your  through cable or a a website TV streamin service in order to watch them. But there's good news for golf fans: ESPN Plus will livestream the PGA Tour in 2022 with more than 4,000 hours of exclusive footage. PGA Tour Live will provide coverage for more than 30 events from January through the fall. 

ESPN Plus doesn't show live a website or a website gas, however, and while its vast library of original programming is impressive, it's difficult to navigate. While the $7 a month, $70 per year service is best suited for die-hard fans of the sports it covers well, more casual fans might find themselves with an ESPN Plus subscription anyway through the , which also includes  for $14 total. Getting the bundle saves $7 a month over the cost of each individual service, so in essence, you get ESPN Plus for free.

a website Plus brings together live news and sports with on-demand shows and movies, including originals, leaning on parent company ViacomCBS' brands like popular channels CBS, MTV, BET, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon and Paramount Network, plus its Paramount Pictures movie studio. 

The service has a ton of content: 30,000 episodes of TV and 2,500 movies, plus dozens of original series arriving this year, for either $5 a month (with ads) or $10 a month (ad-free). Two of its biggest draws from its CBS All Access days include the Star Trek catalog and new originals like Star Trek: Discovery and Picard, and the series The Good Fight. Buzz-worthy originals include two Yellowstone spinoffs (though Yellowstone itself is on rival Peacock), a Star Trek animated show, a series , and new movies like a website Impossible arriving 45 days after theaters. But right now, its main value lies in nostalgia: You can watch just about every old Nickelodeon show, Comedy Central stand-up specials and popular series ranging from Frasier and Cheers to SpongeBob SquarePants and Young Sheldon. Additionally, Paramount Plus launched a  feature which enables subscribers to watch curated content in special categories. Check out channels for Star Trek, CBS Sports HQ, Paw Patrol, and more with either subscription plan. 

Currently, new subscribers can receive a seven-day free trial.

At $5 a month, a website TV Pus is the lowest-priced premium, ad-free streaming service available, with high-end features like 4K resolution, a website and mobile downloads. However, it's also the only service on this list that includes only original cntent, and no back catalog of shows or movies to explore. While it now has more than 50 exclusive, big-budget original programming shows and movies, only a few have captured widespread attention, such as , awebsite Morning Show, awebsite a websit while a website won est Picture among other Oscars. Though the service is branching out with additions like , its library is far smaller than any of the others on this list. 

The app is also confusing because it's housed in the larger Apple TV app with other content. However, Apple TV Plus has one big advantage: There are a lot of ways to get it for free, at least for a while. If you're a degree-seeking college student, a new purchaser of an Apple device, or someone who subscribes to the Apple One bundle, you can snag a long-term free trial of Apple TV Plus.
