7 Best New Streaming Services

Updated July 26, 2022 • Staff

Ever since Netflix made "streaming" a household term, competitors have sprung up left and right. Hulu was one of the first to rival the streaming giant, and while its progress was slow, it now boasts an enviable position near the top. 

Legacy networks like NBC, CBS, and HBO followed suit, and pretty soon, a cord-cutting movement had begun. There are now more shows and channels than ever online, with networks and media companies alike hopping onboard the streaming ship. In this list, we've round up the best among the latest launched.

With shows from other networks from Cartoon Network to CNN, there's a good chance you'll find something that's worth watching. While HBO Max has a lot more to offer than what you'd get on the HBO channel, it also provides all the hits, like Game of Thrones, The Wire or Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.

Peacock is a cross between Netflix, with its large catalog of movies and original series, and a live TV streaming network, with live news and sports. In general, while you'll get a good mix of entertainment, there is a considerable lack of children's programs compared to other streaming services like Netflix or HBO. It's also worth noting that you won't find the classic NBC shows like Friends, Seinfeld and retro seasons of Saturday Night Live. You will, however, find more contemporary shows like Parks and Recreation and 30 Rock, as well as movies, news, live sports and short comedic clips, from NBC as well as its partners and rival networks.
