Not Sure What To What To Stream? Try JustWatch, The Essential Free Streaming Guide
With multiple streaming options available nowadays, it can be hard to keep track of what’s streaming and where to watch it. While popular apps like Netflix, Disney+ and Prime Video take up a majority share of the market, there have been a number of newcomers or region specific apps that have released, each with their own content.
Due to the variety of platforms, the licencing of big shows and movies often bounces between streaming services. This can become a headache to remember where your favourite show or movie is currently. This may lead you into losing valuable time opening the wrong app, while searching.
We’ve all spent time flicking through the endless amount of categories, not finding that must watch title. But what if you had a handy app to show you where everything is and to help plan your next watch? Well now there is, with JustWatch
