And you heard it right, it does actually come with a large collection of anime, manga, and dorama. Since this is known for being a go-to source for anime-related content, its site is also designed with a system that will help you discover new anime series to make sure that you're updated with the latest releases.

DID YOU KNOW?

Netflix used to go by the name Kibble. Back then, the people behind Netflix had trouble coming up with a permanent business name. Netflix co-founder Marc Randolph decided to call the company Kibble for the meantime. Although Randolph didn't want Kibble to be Netflix's name in the long run. After a bunch of test names, they finally settled with Netflix. Why did they decide to call it Netflix then? It's rather simple actually. The Net in Netflix is taken from the word Internet whereas Flix is a short version for the word Flicks. Netflix was a disc rental service in its early years and now it's the pioneer of streaming services. Netflix has emerged as a site that accounts for one-third of all internet traffic. It is also reported that Netflix gets 140-million hours worth of streams in its content in a day. Due to its wide audience, Netflix is willing to shell out billions for their original content. It's no surprise since Netflix is behind some of the best TV shows like Stranger Things and House of Cards.

Despite being a successful entertainment service, Netflix still has strong competitors. Some of which can become a solid Netflix alternative. These streaming services include Hulu and Amazon Prime Video. Both platforms also offer promising original shows along with their streaming services. Amazon Prime Video's original show The Boys has been gaining widespread attention. The Boys has a controversial take on superheroes. Meanwhile, Hulu offers the popular show The Handmaid's Tale. The dystopian series is based on the classic novel of the same title by Margaret Atwood. If nothing seems interesting to watch on Netflix, you can resort to other streaming sites. Many of which offer different movies and television shows that are worth binge-watching. You might even find your next favorite series to watch!

    "I recently have tried to expand away from using Netflix as I have seen most of the good shows there. I have been looking for other subscription services that provided new shows that I would like to watch. STARZ appears to be a good fit with many new shows to watch that were not available on Netflix along with some shows that were present on Netflix. Great selection and compatible with my Chromecast"

    "Not really a Netflix killer, though I like the idea of getting the subscription without cable now. Unfortunately, there's just not enough content that I like. When I was 10 or so, having commercial free movies was a novelty, now it's pretty much everywhere. The service itself worked fine for the trial on all my devices, so no complaints here."

    "FOX is great at producing quality television for many decades now. But it is not an alternative to Netflix in any way. It is a broadcast network, not a streaming service like Netflix. Anything they offer in the way of an app or online content, is linked to what they offer on their traditional network."

I have the channel in my tv package but I honestly don't see many things on there that I want to watch. I don't think this fits the topic at all for me."
