Paramount+ or Hulu:  the best choice for you

By julianapardogonzalez

Considering how capitalism and the market works, it is logical that as some technologies, services, or goods begin to be more used by the masses, they also begin to have more recognition. Consequently, more people, entrepreneurs or visionaries decide to take advantage and become competitors.  

With the increasing competition in the market, every platform needs and have a unique factor to rise above all. This unique factor plays an essential role in engaging the audience on the platform. For example, Disney+ has Marvel’s exclusive content, Prime Video has affordable subscription plans, and Netflix has an excellent interface.  

That is why today we will talk about Hulu and Paramount+ platforms which achieve manage to emerge from the competition in the streaming market and stand out. And we will do this, through comparing their prices, free trials, live TV, library, etc. With, let us get started. 

  • Free Trial 

To start with this comparison, we decide that be the Free Trial. The two giants give out student discounts, making their basic plans much more affordable for them.  

Now, if we look the free trial of Paramount+, only offers a 7-day, while Hulu gives out 30-day free streaming access to inexperienced users. And from an entrepreneurial/ marketing point of view, the free trials are important since I consider that they can be a highly effective branding tool and especially attractive in online environments such as online stores or Ecommerce.  

On the other hand, from a customer point of view, the free trials are essential for analyzing in this case the platform’s interface before investing. So, we can say it is a good sign that Hulu is trying to gain the audience’s trust by availing more time. 

  • Geographical Availability 

Briefly, we can see that Paramount+ is the winner in this category, as Hulu is only available in the US. Meanwhile, the winner is available in 9 zones. Including Latin America, Italy, Australia, UK, US, Ireland, Canada, Middle East, and Nordics. 

This has been a big issue to Hulu, but we can be calm, because they are trying to overcome it by providing their titles to several regions via, Disney+ and other platforms. 

  • Interface 

You should know that the interface plays a vital role in choosing the platform. Because that means by which the user can communicate with a machine. It is to say that it means that the interface is a means by which a user can make anything work. 

Now, when we talk about the streaming, this it helps us find the titles easily on our screen, and the user-friendly experience also helps gain customers’ trust. While both have the same interface, there are a few changes. 

    • Hulu:

Without any complications, the interface is friendly and easy to use. In addition to original titles, they recommend TV channels based on your interest. 

    • Paramount+:

At the same time, the Paramount+ interface has a taskbar at the top separating TV shows, films, Live TV, etc. Furthermore, it also offers recommended shows according to your liking. 

  • Live TV 

The innovative about the streaming platforms is it focus on providing movies, new titles, and its own projects. But it few focuses on replacing the cable. That is why these two platforms have considered it and are providing Live TV features for their users. 

    • Hulu Live TV:

Includes access to live sports events like NFL, NBA, etc. 

      • BET 
      • Bravo 
      • Comedy Central 
      • E! 
      • Freeform 
      • Hallmark Channel 
    • Paramount+:
