Neon Movie Rental SignThe providers listed below offer on demand, subscription, and ad-supported video content to their viewers via the Internet or offer software and hardware to support streaming. Each bio summarizes the extent of the provider’s coverage (copyright issues often restrict coverage zones), the type of streaming service it offers, and its costs as of publication.

We separated the list into four sections:

Subscription Video on Demand (SVOD) providers include on-demand and subscription providers that charge a flat fee per movie or show or charge a monthly membership fee for access to content.

Ad-supported Video on Demand (AVOD) providers generate revenue by selling advertising. Their services are typically free to viewers.

The software section includes programs that simplify online video storage and searching.

The hardware section includes devices that connect televisions to the Internet, letting users stream online content on the traditional viewing device.
