4 great alternatives to Netflix for Android and iOS

4 great alternatives to Netflix for Android and iOS
With tens of millions of users tied to services other than Netflix, it's safe to say that despite boasting the largest subscription numbers, it doesn't exist in vacuum. The world is more complicated than that, and rival companies have been trying to win a piece of Netflix's business by offering essentially the same thing.

But streaming services have long transcended the desktop and laptop, and have found a new—rather permanent for now—home in smartphones and tablets. Today, you can grab the app corresponding to the service you're using in under a minute, for free. So long as you're a paying customer and remember your log-in and password combo, you'll be watching your favorite shows in no time.

But why look for alternatives to Netflix at all? It really depends. It might be that your aforementioned show just isn't available with the content provider, or any number of technical or idiosyncratic reasons. Whatever it might be, we decided it's high time we gathered the most deserving Netflix rivals in one place, so here goes!

Forget the Internet speed, the problem is with the DATA CAPS these cable and wireless companies place on us.

Are these data caps a thing only in US? I've traveled to a lot of countries and never heard of such thing. My monthly download is around 700GB and my home connection is roughly 1gbps. It's hard to imagine having a restriction on how much I can download.

Comcast has placed a 300GB per month data cap on my home WiFi and $10 extra for every 50GB I go over the 300GB data cap.

BingeOn has literally turned my 5GB data cap on my tablet into an unlimited plan. Thank you, T-Mobile!

If they list popcorn time, they might as well list Showbox. One pirating service is the same as another.
