Little more than a decade ago TV series were confined to either the major networks (NBC, ABC, CBS and FOX) or the cable powerhouses of HBO and Showtime, but with the advent of the ‘Netflix era’ that has all changed.
The surge in OTT platforms over the last 10 years or so has transformed the TV show landscape. Thanks to Netflix and the slew of competitors that followed, we now have access to the largest catalogue of TV shows ever.
Whether you want to watch the best TV shows ever like The Wire, West Wing, Six Feet Under or The Sopranos, or keep up-to-date with the latest offerings like from the stables of Netflix, Prime Video, Disney+, Apple TV+, Peacock, HBO Max or Discovery+, OTT platforms have the solution.
But that does not mean that streaming platforms have replaced the traditional networks: NBC's Peacock offers all the NBC classic of yesteryear as well as its new shows like The Blacklist, the Chicago franchise, the Law & Order franchise, This Is Us and The Voice to name just a few.
ABC's hit shows like Grey's Anatomy, The Bachelor, American Idol, The Good Doctor etc, can also be streamed through Disney+.
Through Paramount+ you can watch all your favorite CBS shows like the NCIS franchise, Blue Bloods, SEAL Team etc.
And if you thought that the networks had a distinct advantage with show volume over Netflix and Prime Video then think again. While the two streaming juggernauts may not have a vast archive of top original shows to draw from, their content factories churn out the best original shows at a phenomenal rate.
Netflix (the godfather of streaming services) not only licenses a trove of content from other providers but also generates such hit original series like Stranger Things, The Crown, Narcos and Master of None to name a very few.
Amazon's Prime Video has given us such humdingers like The Marvelous Mrs Maisel, Man in the High Castle and Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan among many, many more.
But what the likes of Netflix and Prime Video have really done that is truly remarkable is they have brought TV series from across the world into our homes. English-language shows form just half of Netflix's massive cache of entertainment, and Prime Video is catching up fast. So whether you're looking for the top 10 Spanish shows, or the best Scandinavian crime thrillers the new streaming services have them all.
