Which streaming service has the best overall content?

With so many coming out these days, we pick and choose. Most stick to big three: Netflix, Amazon, Hulu. But, with all these other, ones with live stream, ones on certain devices, etc. which service do you think has the overall (original, movies, tv, other) best content?

Disclaimer: I'm just using the services I see in this forum for poll. I don't know all, so did my best.

EPIX.

They have thousands of movies and for the most part easy to find(can't say that about Hulu,Netflix and Amazon Prime).

The only negative is I can't play it on my Roku TV's but plays OK with a Roku 1 devices.

Aren't most of EPIX's titles on Hulu?

I'm not sure how many titles are on Hulu that are from Epix.

If you so some searching on Hulu ,I think they have everything broken down from their sources.

Honestly, as far as bang for the buck...WWE Network. If I have to go with something along the list, then still Hulu right now but that gap is closing all the time.

I think that you just hit at the heart of why I find this to be a useless poll--it's totally subjective.

For instance, as far as "bang for the buck" goes, my vote would go to Shudder. I wouldn't watch the WWE Network even if it were free. The poll is set up to compare apples to oranges to grapes to pineapples.

Realistically, I can't pick a "best overall content" provider between Netflix and Amazon Prime--I watch movies and shows on both services, and they're equally valuable to me. Those who watch primarily TV shows will probably rate Hulu more highly than either, and those who love classic cinema would probably rate FilmStruck as the best. Do you love British TV? Acorn would probably be in your #1 spot.

So, the poll is essentially useless, unless we can come up with some sort of quantifiable measure to compare the various services.

And that's my $0.02 worth of pontificating.
