3 Streaming Services To Check Out That Aren’t Netflix

With the advent of online streaming, discovering new TV shows and movies to watch has never been easier. All you really need to access this seemingly endless amount of content is High Speed Internet, a comfy couch, and a snack (well, maybe a couple of snacks).

Most people are familiar with Netflix – the current king of online streaming – but what other streaming service options are out there? The competitive landscape is growing every year, giving audiences more and more options, including very niche services that cater to very particular tastes and interests.

We’ve decided to feature some of these other streaming services that also offer top shelf programming for those Friday night binge-watching sessions. Here are 3 cool streaming services to check out that aren’t Netflix:

#1 Shudder

Shudder is the ultimate streaming service for all the horror fans out there. This AMC-owned service is solely dedicated to thrillers, horror and suspense programming. Shudder sets itself apart from other streaming services that offer horror content by using a team of experts to review all movies before adding them to the collection. Not only will you find classic horror films, but you’ll also be exposed to a ton of great, lesser known movies that are often unavailable through other streaming companies. When you’re in the mood for a scare, Shudder won’t disappoint.


If you’re an HBO junkie, you’ll be happy to know that through HBO GO and HBO NOW, you can stream the exact same award-winning content that appears on the cable channel itself. Game of Thrones, Veep, True Detective – whatever your HBO fave, you’ll find it readily available in the library. And, if you’re looking to become worldlier for your next dinner date, HBO also offers great news programming that is sure to leave your companion impressed.

Check out our unlimited Internet plans that’ll prevent you from missing even a minute of your favourite movies or shows, here.

#3 Amazon Prime Instant Video

You’ve probably heard about Amazon Prime for online shopping, but what about Amazon Prime Instant Video? If you’re looking for a Netflix alternative, this is your best bet. Amazon’s video service has grown exponentially in popularity since  launch and now offers a plethora of movies, TV shows and HBO classics, all readily available for streaming. You can also check out Amazon Studio exclusive programming if you’re on the hunt for a new, addictive series.

So, there you have it, the Top 3 Online Streaming Services. Acanac has High Speed Internet plans that’ll help you make the most of your new-found entertainment with a reliable connection and home Internet plan that is right for you. Call us today at 1-866-281-3583 to find out why it’s good to be here.
