This year, more movies are coming straight to you, and more TV shows are jumping from cable channels to your gadgets.

One streaming platform alone can house thousands of titles. So imagine, as a super-fan of streaming, getting to further broaden your horizons with additional platforms at your disposal. Which ones are going to be worth your while? Scroll through and find out.

What’s a streaming roundup without this giant?
