Paramount+ is currently serving two plans. A cheaper plan at $4.99/month but at the cost of bearing ads in it. On the other hand, the second plan costs $9.99/month, providing an ad-free experience to users.

Moreover, if you choose any of the above-mentioned plans annually, you’ll be entitled to a 15% discount on these services. Lastly, they also provide a special Paramount Plus student discount for young minds. So if you’re a student, then it’s your best deal. Keeping all that in mind, let’s move on to Netflix in the next section of this article.

Netflix provides four different plans for its users. Beginning with their recently launched, Basic with ads plan, which comes at $6.99/month. Unfortunately, this plan is only available in a few regions. Moreover, this is the first time in history that Netflix is offering an ad-based scheme.

The second plan, ‘Basic,’ costs $9.99/month and provides an ad-free service. However, it supports one device at a time. Furthermore, the third and fourth plan costs $15.49/per month and $19.99/per month, respectively. The last two plans allow more than one screen to run simultaneously. With all that said, let’s move on to the streaming platform from the top-running e-commerce industry. Yes, you guess that right, Amazon Prime.

In addition to their streaming platform, Amazon Prime membership allows you to access several perks like unlimited music, free deliveries, special discounts, and many others.

After analyzing the three behemoths, let’s move on to Hulu. The streaming service is gaining fame as a champion in the market. So without any further ado, let’s have a look at its plans down below.

The Hulu streaming service is currently serving two plans. The first scheme allows users to access its content with ads at $7.99/month (or $79.99/year). Furthermore, the second plan is available at $14.99/month. You can access their streaming library without getting interrupted by ads.

Now that we have briefly observed all the attractive plans let’s sum it up in a nutshell and come up with the best possible pocket-friendly OTT platform.

Our Final Verdict

Streaming services are a necessity in today’s era, and the entire industry has been booming in the last few years. As we can see from the above discussion that not all of them are pocket friendly. Today we’ve considered the best platforms which provide both ad-based and non-ad-based plans. So if we believe the ad-based plans of all the four giants, then Paramount+ is clearly winning the race with their $4.99/month plan.

On the other hand, there’s almost a tie between Paramount+ and Amazon Prime in their ad-free subscriptions. We hope you have a better idea about the most pocket-friendly streaming service. That’s all we have for this guide. If you want a guide on signing up at Paramount+, head over to this page.
