Posted: Mon Apr 27, 2020 4:14 pm
The subscription charges of Netflix are high but it offers enormous and quality content for its users. There is no competition to the famous Netflix originals such as Money Hiest,House of Cards, Black Mirror, etc. The entire collection on Netflix is neatly stacked into different categories which are subdivided into kids, Asian, British, Crime TV shows and many more. Netflix has tied up with well known comedians like Jimmy Carr, Chris Tucker, etc for long standup comedy shows. Amazon Prime Video also has its own original content with a very good rating for the shows like The Man in the High Castle, Mozart in the Jungle and others. Amazon has an edge in regional content in India as it shows latest Hindi movies include Lipstick under my burkha, Trapped, Raabta, Hindi medium and more.

Have used Netflix,amazon prime ,Hulu plus(using fake IP), Hotstar and Eros now.
Well as you want to focus on Indian markets,it comes down to Netflix, amazon prime, hotstar. Well Netflix was hyped a lot when it entered Indian market and witnessed gradual slow down in the number of registering users. It still has a larger user base because of brand image and only focused on streaming while for Amazon and hotstar these are side businesses.
The sitcom selections is limited, that 70's show, friends, the office UK are the ones worth watching! It has a lot of documentaries and a lot of drama! The thing with Netflix is, it has a lot of content but not the ones you hear people talking about. Except like sacred games, peaky blinders, riverdale, bojack horseman are the new happening shows! Yes they do have fan favorites but they majorly ones whose storyline has been finished like breaking bad, house of cards etc. Movies they do have a lot of them but again not the known ones, it doesnt stand out in any genre of movies I believe! If you are a movies person then I would say forget it! And if your primary language of streaming is hindi then the range of choices is very scarce. But no one can beat the amount of content Netflix has to offer.
Has a wider variety of sitcoms but not many! When it comes down to drama it has some famous ones like mr robot, house, mentalist, the office USA and a bunch more. Recently Amazon is seen putting out good Amazon original content like mirzapur, the marvelous ms.maisel and a few more. They have tried to balance a lot between regional, Bollywood and international which leads to not a great range of choices but yea its okayish not that great. They also offer a greater range of cartoon and anime selection for kids and also some hindi TV shows like tarak Mehta etc.
