The Best Ways to Watch Videos Online
The forerunner in the streaming-video movement, Netflix offers a clean, easy-to-use interface for finding the shows and movies you want to watch and lining them up for marathon
viewing. Those who prize their pop-culture savvy will want to stay up-to-date on the service’s much-talked-about original
programming (like Orange Is the New Black and House of Cards).
The cost: $8 a month to watch on up to two devices at a time; $12 a month for up to four devices to be used simultaneously.
Worth noting: Netflix is the only one of the services that will still, for a separate fee, let you borrow actual DVDs.
The downside: TV series generally appear in full-season bundles, so your binge-watching will have to wait until after the finale’s original airdate. (And you’ll need to do some social-networking acrobatics to avoid spoilers until then.)
