Scroll below for a full comparison.
Which is the cheapest streaming service subscription?
Of the main streaming services (Netflix, NOW TV, Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV+ and Britbox), a subscription to Apple TV+ is the cheapest at £4.99 per month. However, Apple TV+ has a tiny TV and film library compared to other services.
Is Netflix or Amazon Prime Video cheapest?
Netflix offers the cheapest subscription plan out of the two platforms.
You can get a basic plan on Netflix for £5.99 per month, whereas Amazon Prime Video currently costs £7.99 per month (you can also buy Amazon for £79 for one year, which works out to roughly £6.60 a month).
However, the Netflix basic plan doesn’t allow HD viewing and is limited to viewing the service on one screen at a time. The standard plan, £8.99 per month, offers HD viewing and allows two screens to watch Netflix at once.
There is also a premium Netflix plan for £11.99 per month, which supports Ultra HD content and viewing on four devices.
If you already have an Amazon Prime membership (i.e. you are able to get free one-day delivery from the site) you already have access to Amazon Prime video at no cost.
