Amazon Prime Video is the official video streaming service from Amazon, the same makers of the Fire TV Stick.
While you need an Amazon account to set up the Fire TV Stick, a Prime Video membership is not automatic. You need to activate a Prime Video membership in your account to use the service.
Upon signing up for Prime Video, you get a free 30-day trial period to use all the services of the platform. You will be notified in advance when your trial period is about to lapse, which gives you time to decide if you want to continue with it.
Signing up for the trial period requires you to enter your payment information in advance. If you don’t cancel at the end of the trial period, you will automatically be billed for a month’s subscription.
A month’s subscription costs $5.99.
Netflix is one of the most popular video-streaming apps available today.
Netflix offers a 30-day trial period, wherein you will be asked which plan you want to sign up for. Each plan is different, offering different streaming qualities and numbers of users that can access an account simultaneously.
Upon choosing a plan, you get access to all features available at the tier. You will be notified in advance before the trial expires, so you can decide if Netflix is meant for you. If you don’t take action by the end of the trial period, you will be billed automatically.
A standard Netflix plan starts at $8.99 a month and can go as high as $17.99.
Hulu and Hulu Live TV
Hulu offers a 30-day free trial on its streaming service.
You get to choose between two plans, one costing $6 a month with ads and the other costing $12 a month without ads after the trial period.
If you are looking to subscribe to the Live TV plan of Hulu, you get a seven-day free trial before you are charged. The Live TV plan costs $65 a month.
YouTube Premium removes all the ads. It also gives you access to offline viewing on your smartphone or tablet.
If you want to try YouTube Premium, you can do so free for 30 days.

If you don’t want to get tied with these services, you can subscribe to HBO Max for $15 a month.
