Unless you are living under a rock, you have probably heard of streaming services. They come in many different forms and have pretty much replaced the act of going out and buying or renting a physical copy of your favorite movie at a local Blockbuster. It all started with Netflix back in 2007 when it became the world’s first streaming service. It has since become so wildly popular and successful that other companies have been piggy backing off of it. As a result of this, streaming has become something that isn’t exactly cheap as so many movies and TV shows are now spread across different streaming services. It has become a balancing act today for many of us to figure out which services are worth our money and which are not. Every streaming service is home to different movies and TV shows. Some have ads and some do not. This leads us to the question of this article — which streaming service is the best?

While the answer to this question pretty much comes down to personal preference, there are some streaming services that are objectively better than others. HBO Max is one of those streaming services. The reason why HBO Max is one of the best streaming services is because of its selection of top tier movies and TV shows. It has “Game of Thrones,” “The Dark Knight,” “Shawshank Redemption,” “Euphoria”, and the entire eight film collection of “Harry Potter.” While it is a bit pricey at 10 dollars per month with ads and 15 with no ads, it more than makes up for the price with its incredible library and high quality original content. On top of this, you can even stream on three different devices, simultaneously, making it very convenient. It’s widely available on a variety of devices allowing you to use the service pretty much anywhere. All of these factors make HBO Max the best streaming service as of right now. However, at the end of the day, it all depends on what you like to watch, so choose what will make you the happiest.
