Netflix Taking Over Media Market?

Netflix is loved by thousands upon thousands of people today, and it is taking over old DVDs. Hulu and Amazon Prime, Netflix’s competition, have been fighting to get more views on the movies and TV shows that they offer. Hulu is known to have the “comfort television” and Amazon Prime leaves open doors for free shipping and access to many TV shows. But how is Netflix taking over other media markets? Netflix is known to be for many young viewers and teenagers. 

Between Netflix and Hulu, Netflix seems to have more affordable prices to watch. Basic video is $7.99 per month, but with this only one device can be used at a time. You can get $10.99 per month with HD video on two devices at a time. Last but not least, it includes $13.99 HD screening for four devices at a time. Hulu costs $7.99 per month, or its ad-free version costs  $10.99 per month. Its highest valued option, which  gives you over 50 channels for $39.99 per month, is a huge price difference from $13.99. Amazon Prime gets you free shipping within two days and also gives you a variety of movies and TV shows. Netflix gives the classic movies that may not be reached easily on the shelf, which draws people in. Having the classic TV shows like FRIENDS and The Office also can easily attract  many fans towards Netflix. 

This also seems to be one of the cheaper options with a good selection of movies to choose from, and as Netflix is evolving, it is going to start adding in new TV shows for its viewers. Netflix specials like The Kissing Booth and To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before are grabbing people on the spot as well. Although Hulu and Amazon Prime may have great deals, Netflix seems to be stepping up its game by the minute. Other media markets are definitely getting taken over by Netflix, one of the most popular streaming networks in the world.
