streaming-services-to-watch-family-movies-and-TV

Time to jump straight into the best streaming platforms for family movies all with a free trial to enjoy. For our criteria I will be looking at services that offer movies that are made for kids but with great adult humour hidden within.

Netflix is out of the running as it is no longer offering a free trial and most of us already have it! Though it is still arguably the best all rounder streaming service.

My Top 3 Streaming Services For Family Entertainment

If you are looking for a quick answer then I have selected the top 3 services for Family entertainment and why I think they deserve to be considered.

1st place goes to hulu. It has a great selection of big family movies, a seasonal collection and rotates movies regularly. All this for a low price, it is unbeatable value for family entertainment

Starz is winning a lot of categories, it is cheaper than some of its network rivals but seems to always have a selection of great family movies, a seasonal collection and is always being updated with new content.

It probably does have the best selection of movies for the family and is the best value. The only thing that lets it down is that it is stuck with the library it has which is only updated when there is a new movie from Disney.
