Entertainment plays a very important part in our lives. Be it after a tiring day at work, or binge watching our favourite shows on a lazy weekend, digital platforms have become a part of our daily lives. And Netflix is probably one of the best platforms. It has over 10,000 TV shows from around the world and a huge collection of movies in different languages. It is a great streaming option on phone, television and personal computer. It also allows us to download the shows and films so that we can watch them when offline.
However, one only drawback of Netflix is that it is a bit expensive. The subscription of Netflix can’t be afforded by a lower-middle-class person who is equally interested in getting entertained with world-class content. In such a scenario, people look out for alternatives that are relatively cheaper or free. To cater to your needs, we have a created a list of online streaming platforms which you can tune in to get your daily dose of entertainment without burning a hole in your pocket. Have a look:
