What The Tech? Comparing content on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon

Weekend Extra

Some people have Amazon Prime Video since it’s included in their Prime membership. Some have Netflix for “The Office” and some have Hulu for live TV.  

They’re all similar. Do you need more than one? And if you do, which ones?  

Which streaming service has the best movies and shows? Let’s find out. Netflix and Amazon Prime each have around 4,000 movies, fewer on Hulu.  

I’ll compare only movies from the past decade and only movies with Rotten Tomatoes score of 80% or higher, which means most people think they’re pretty good.  

Netflix has 960 of those movies that include the Marvel Universe catalog. Black Panther, Thor Ragnarok, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, along with Star Wars the Last Jedi and Incredibles 2.  

In the Amazon Prime Video lineup for May, there are 929 titles, “A Quiet Place”, “Death Wish”, “I Can Only Imagine” and “Tyler Perry’s Acrimony”.  

Hulu has roughly 600 movies matching our criteria, including “A Quiet Place”, “If Beale Street Could Talk”, “Fences” and “I, Tonya”. Keep in mind though, offerings from all three services change every month and Disney will soon pull all of the Marvel and Star Wars movies off Netflix and put them on Disney’s new streaming service, so the Netflix lineup will drastically change this year.  

If you want to save money and can put up with commercials, Roku TV, Tubi and Pluto TV have some of the same movies and shows for free.
