The days have gone when you have to sit in front of the TV to tune the channels and wait for hours. This is the 21st century – the era of the global world. It would be fair to say that YouTube is also old-fashioned. NetFlix remained a favorite for so long and by that time, many new platforms emerged. Why are people subscribing to these platforms? What are they missing on TV and YouTube? The current blog post explains the differences between YouTube and other video streaming platforms. This is just an informational blog post to help readers learn the facts.
YouTube versus Video Streaming Platforms
Anyone can easily join YouTube and use it for free. Uploading the content is also free. The company sells ads and generates revenue. Moreover, they have strong policies to protect copyright policies. While, platforms like Netflix, peoplestv.nu, and others, sell licensed content by selling subscriptions. Moreover, they upload original content. As YouTube is available to all countries, these platforms are not accessible in all regions due to the policy of licensed content. You may apply for flat subscriptions or can rent the unlimited content for a limited time period.
YouTube and video streaming platforms share a common feature – you can sync them to your TV screens. What does it mean? If you want to arrange a movie night at the weekend and don’t have a projector, use the “Connect TV” feature and use your large screen LEDs. You may stream any content if you have taken the subscriptions. You may replay them as many times as you want.
On YouTube, it may get hard to sync entertaining content (as per your preference). It is because as the platform contains quality content, many channels are producing low-quality content. While on video streaming platforms, you will not have such issues. They buy the licensed content and offer you full access to it by paying for the subscriptions.
Well, the purpose of both platforms is the same – entertainment for the users. The biggest difference lies in the availability of the platforms. Only YouTube is a widely available platform. Well, you may try VPNs in some cases but it is considered a violation of the rules.
