12 Best European Streaming Services Available in the U.S.

When it comes to quantity, it's pretty hard to beat Netflix. As it partners with local studios and distributors worldwide, the streamer has built an enviable global reach and, consequently, a wide array of diverse titles. But even then, its catalog is still pretty limited.

In Europe, streaming services have been popping up nonstop to address this void. Some, like Portugal's Spamflix, offer the most niche titles in the area, while others like the UK's TrueStory aim to deliver little-heard stories across the world. Below, we list the best of Europe's homegrown streamers.

BBC Select is a streaming service dedicated specifically to all things culture, politics, and ideas. It houses the best of the BBC's non-fiction content—namely, widely-acclaimed documentaries and docuseries—but it also occasionally sources titles from other channels, like the UK's Channel 4. While it can seem like BBC Select is competing with Acorn TV and BritBox, which are the go-to UK channels in North America, it's actually closer to the likes of CuriosityStream and Discovery Plus in its specialization of documentaries.

Price: $4.99/month

While programming depends on your geographical location, Acorn TV in the US focuses on TV shows from dozens of international networks in countries of the Commonwealth, from British channels like the BBC and ITV as well as Oceanic shows from Australia and New Zealand. 

Aside from British shows, there’s also a solid selection of content from other major European networks from France, Italy and Ireland.
