Netflix will be more expensive this year, and you’ll also get ads! It’s time for something different: These are the best streaming services in 2022.
Best Streaming Services in 2022
Earlier this year, it became clear what Netflix plans for the end of this year: a new subscription with ads, and an additional cost of 2.39 euros for each viewer who watches your account outside of your household. The first step of this plan has already been implemented in the US, with a basic subscription of 4.99 euros per month. The second step is already under test.
For many people, this is a reason to cancel your Netflix subscription. Because paying more for a streaming service that is already the most expensive…why would you do that? And who wants to flush with commercials? We’ve listed the best streaming services in 2022, so you’ll have enough to watch even without Netflix.
Although the name Disney+ indicates that you can only watch good anime using this streaming service, that is definitely not the case. Disney Giant: They own 20th Century Fox, Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm and National Geographic. So you can watch all the movies from those studios via Disney+.

Amazon Prime Video is by far the cheapest streaming service in the Netherlands.

4. Apple TV +
Ask your friends or family, “Which of you here has an Apple TV +?” You may hear crickets. However, Apple’s streaming service has plenty of series and movies worth checking out, such as For All Mankind, Ted Lasso, The Morning Show, and Academy Award-winning CODA.

SkyShowtime is the latest addition to the Netherlands’ streaming services. The offer is still very limited, but don’t let that spoil the fun.

And if you get a subscription before December 7, 2022, you’ll receive a 50% discount every month until you cancel.

6. The country of the video
Videoland is the main local streaming service. The focus here is on Dutch language films and series and content from owner RTL, such as Expedition Robinson, Een Jaar van je Leven and Good Times Bad Times. But there are also many versions of Videoland Originals: from VIP and Love Island to the famous Mocro Mafia. Would you rather have a Hollywood production? Then try one of the 697 films and 281 series from abroad.
