Netflix and Hulu are streaming devices that give multiple options of movies and tv shows to watch. Dozens of people prefer these streaming devices over t.v because they have multiple options you can choose at any time, also these devices hold your place for you, for example let's say you just started a Pretty Little Liars marathon then you get interrupted because you have soccer practice, you can pause and pick up where you left off. Another advantage to streaming services have over regular tv is that you don't have to worry so much about missing anything new.

Considering everyone has their own preferences for what they like to watch and with so many choices like horror, comedy, thrillers, action, drama, romance , and sci-fi, it is sometimes hard to pick what to watch or keep up with shows. Have you finished binge watching and trying to find something new? I have a few suggestions for you. Just keep in mind that there is far more things to watch on the streaming services than what I'm presenting.

I asked a few students what they like to watch on Netflix and Hulu and why?

"Well on Hulu I love watching South Park because it's extremely funny in my opinion, and it relates to things going on today which is cool." ~ Daisy Reddaway

"I mostly like comedies, but Arrow and Gotham are pretty good."~ Zachary Aldrich

"Shameless. Best show ever. It helps to let the real world know both sides of life and how messed up life can get."~ Alyssa Mcowan

"SUPERNATURAL BECAUSE IT'S AMAZING."~Sarah Swalec
