In the third quarter, Netflix had 223 million subscribers. As for Amazon Prime Video, the latest figures date from 2021 and reported 200 million. Undoubtedly, these two SVoD services are the most popular subscription video streaming platforms in the world. But which of the two should you choose? You will see that the question is not so obvious to decide. Netflix vs Amazon Prime Video, it’s the battle of the bosses.
Why should you choose Netflix?
When you choose to subscribe to a streaming video service, the catalog is a determining criterion, along with the price. Exactly, with more than 6500 titles, the Netflix catalog is the most comprehensive of all SVoD platforms. Netflix is House of Cards, Stranger Things, La Casa de Papel, Narcos, Breaking Bad… In short, Netflix is some of the best series of all time, and so much more, as its catalog is infinitely rich. Let’s agree. Not all content is great. But, there is good, very good and, above all, there is something for all tastes and even for children. So if you are looking for a subscription to a streaming video platform for the whole familyNetflix will suit you perfectly.
In addition, there are four Netflix subscriptions, with a top price starting at €5.99/month. But, it will be necessary to accept to have publicity. If you do not wish to have one, you will have the choice between three formulas, at 8.99€/month, 13.49€/month and 17.99€/month, with a price that changes according to the quality of the image and the number of simultaneous screens.
Why should you choose Amazon Prime Video?
With just under 4,000 titles, the Amazon Prime Video catalog is very rich. But, it has nothing to do with that of Netflix. With the notable exception of The Lord of the Rings series, people have a harder time identifying content produced or offered by Amazon Prime Video. The Amazon Prime Video catalog is of quality, everyone recognizes it, but it is less flashy and does not have the same notoriety as that of Netflix.
If people subscribe to Amazon Prime Video, it is primarily thanks to its price, only €6.99/month or €69.90/year, with 30 days free trial. Subscribing to Amazon Prime Video is therefore cheaper than Nettlix subscription. And, this is not the only one of its advantages.
Indeed, with Amazon Prime Video, you automatically have three screens simultaneously and 4K UHD quality, when you have to take the most expensive package to benefit from it on Netflix. Also, Prime Video subscription is just one of the services included in the Amazon Prime program. Indeed, for only €6.99/month, you also benefit from all other benefits of the Amazon Prime program, namely expedited delivery, Amazon Prime Music, Amazon Photos or even Prime Reading. Finally, and football fans will be delighted, subscribing to Amazon Prime Video gives access to the Le Pass Ligue 1 channel. However, with the Le Pass Ligue channel, you can watch 80% of the matches of the French football championship.
