Netflix, Hulu becoming expensive? Try these alternate free streaming services

There is only one thing worse than watching commercials during your favorite TV shows.

That is having to pay way too much each month for streaming services you don't enjoy anymore.

Series and movies are disappearing from platforms like HBO Max, Hulu and Netflix as prices rise.

However, there is a solution: alternate free ad-supported streaming services.

They are Tubi TV, Roku Channel, Freevee and Pluto TV.

Goofy names aside, these are services that offer hundreds of shows and films to stream on demand at zero dollars.

They can do that because they have ads you can't fast-forward (although the number of ads vary).

Ads are coming to paid streaming services too. Hulu, Peacock and Paramount+ have always had paid, ad-supported tiers.

HBO Max joined the fray while Disney+ plans a similar tier in December.

Netflix's ad-supported tier is available to consumers from November 3 for $6.99 a month.

So why not switch? These free alternatives are also home to old TV shows and films.

Instead of Netflix and chilling, why not try Roku and save money for a vacation.
