At some point, we all thought of streaming as a pioneering answer to those seeking a midway between network TV, traditional cable, and current-release films. Services like Netflix and Amazon Prime were jam-packed with all these things and more, and their emergence ushered in a wildly new way to watch: quick and convenient, with countless to choose from.
But soon streaming had become overstuffed with more of the same thing. Before you knew it, media outlets had their own Netflixes, Primes, and Vudus going on—streamers, like cable before it, are now going through the same trajectory as every other product that was once shiny and new.
That said, there are still streaming services that dare to do things differently, and they deserve their own list for bringing something new to the table. Be it in their features, interface, or offerings, you'll find that the services below are unique in their own ways and prove that streaming still has a few lively tricks up its sleeve.
