When we watch a movie on Netflix and Amazon Prime, we can find the difference between the two on the basis of Video Quality Proportionally price. Do you know the difference between the two? TO get the best one of the two, go through the article till the end.

Though both are the same if we talk about entertainment, they are really different. Netflix vs Amazon prime is the main concern to the user as everyone cant affords both, so have to choose one! but which one? A user can select the connection according to their taste of entertainment, Price, Video Quality and Streaming, Application usage, Music Choice and many other features that make a huge difference between the two.



When a common man wants to buy anything, price is the main concern. The pricing scheme of Netflix vs Amazon prime highly differs.

Free Trail
Both Amazon and Netflix offer free Trails. All you have to do is choose a subscription pack and pay for it. But the price will be charged from next month only. Also, you can cancel the connection at the time of trial and no money will be charged for it.

Subscription packs
The two streaming options differ giantly when it comes to subscription packs. Let me make you understand what the subscription says. Subscription pack differs on the basis of Video quality and the number of connection access at the same time.
Netflix Basic plan lets you stream TV shows and movies from Netflix on one device at a time in standard definition (SD). This plan also lets you download titles to one phone or tablet.
Netflix Standard plan lets you stream TV shows and movies from Netflix on two devices at the same time and in high definition (HD) when available. This plan also lets you download titles to two phones or tablets. Netflix Premium plan lets you stream TV shows and movies from Netflix on four devices at the same time and in high definition (HD) and ultra high definition (UHD) when available. This plan also lets you download titles to four phones or tablets.
Amazon Subscription pack costs on a monthly basis as well as an annual basis based on the user’s choice.
Monthly charges- Rs. 129
Annual Charges- Rs. 999Note: Amazon is better than Netflix in terms of Price.

App Interface

Netflix vs Amazon Prime: Which is the best streaming service

The user interface of Netflix is user efficient but it messes up the content some shows over others, it remembers what we watched and what we would like to watch again. Amazon Prime interface is fine and user interactive but absolutely no sense of what an individual user might like.

Portability (Amazon Prime vs Netflix)

Netflix and Amazon prime both have different device support capabilities. Let us see on what devices you can access your Netflix and Amazon prime streaming and how.
Amazon Prime can be accessed to your computer/MAC, TV through firestick, Fire tablets, Kindle fire second generation, Roku, Nvidia shield devices, etc. Till last year, Apple devices shipped with Netflix app support, but not Amazon Instant Video. Amazon launched the Apple-supported app for prime in the second half of last year. Similarly, Netflix is available for ages for chromecast, however, you can use the Chromecast’s browser cast function to start Amazon Prime Video from your laptop or phone onto your TV.


When it comes to quality and quantity, which one you choose? I think, obviously quality first then quantity because quantity without quality is of no use. When it comes to the total library count then Amazon Prime Beats Netflix by having almost 3 times more quantity than Netflix but Netflix has more certified movies than Amazon Prime that is almost double. With no doubt, Netflix wins here.

Taste of Entertainment

Everyone has their own taste when it comes to Entertainment, some are thriller lovers while some love to watch Romantic dramas. Price, features, and compatibility of the two are all good but they mean nothing if there is zero to watch for you. Which is better depends on your taste?
Netflix has a great collection of Netflix exclusive shows like Stranger Things, Midhunter, The Umbrella Academy, Marvel’s Daredevil and What’s not. Similarly Amazon Prime has the best series The Americans, BOSCH, Forever, OZ, Hannibal and much more.
Let’s talk about the famous series Game of Thrones. Recently in April 2019, Game of Thrones latest episode8 was released and I was mad at watching the same. Game of Thrones latest release is available on Amazon Prime with some small additional charge but not on Netflix. You basically have to sign up for the HBO channel that works on Amazon Prime, because you can’t watch Game of Thrones from just an Amazon Prime subscription alone.

Other Benefits

When we talk about Amazon prime vs Netflix then Amazon prime is a very affordable choice. Along with a large library of movies and video quality, Amazon Prime provides you other benefits to choose prime over Netflix. These are the next day delivery of products, low price products, and Amazon Music. In contrast, Netflix only gives you access to a large set of movies and TV shows to watch.
So, if you look for other benefits along with streaming then Amazon Prime wins the race.
