Netflix, as we all know, is one of the top media service providers in the U.S. And now, it has gained its popularity almost all over the world. Some people would prefer using Netflix over watching with their local cable provider. The only problem is that, to have a lifetime of access to Netflix, you must be willing to pay every month. The first month of signing up will be free then the next months will be paid. It would cost you around five dollars every month or depends on your service provider.
Not all people can have a lifetime access to Netflix. This is why it is a pleasure for these alternative websites in case Netflix is not provided. Some are mostly movies, some are more focused on television series, and some have television series and movies combined.
Listed below are the top five alternative websites that you can also consider in case there is no Netflix:
- Flix Premiere
This is probably one of the most seen applications on your smart-TV. It costs less than Netflix which is around $3.99 per month. Flix Premiere is compatible with iOS/Android, Mac/PC Sony, Samsung and LG TVs, Roku, Apple TV, and Amazon Fire TV. Unlike Netflix, it showcases only the movies that are premiered for the week or month. Meaning, this is just like a portable cinema that changes weekly or monthly. If you prefer seeing the older movies, then this one is not for you. Most of the films available here are the recent and international ones.
- Snag Films
If you’re on a budget, you should definitely try this one. It is compatible with iOS/Android and Mac/PC. Snag Films cost nothing but there is one problem—you have to deal with the ads.The quality of the movies and television series cannot go higher than 720p but it is bearable. Snag Films may not offer the best of the best but with over 10,000 movies and television series, you can already enjoy binge-watching all day.
Who here is a fan of Disney? I am! I am! If you’re a person who grew up watching Disney films or TV series, you can start reminiscing about it here.

If you are into Japanese cartoons, then you should check out Crunchyroll.

Just like Snag Films, this one comes for free. And of course, when it’s free streaming, then you should expect the occasional ads. This is just like Netflix but it gives you no charges.
