HBO Max

It’s simple really — in 2021, no streaming service holds a candle to HBO Max. They changed the game by bringing the cinematic experience home. WB didn’t force theaters out of business, instead gave them the boost they needed while also providing an alternative for people that prefer staying home.

To say Audible Plus has changed our lives is an understatement. Not only have we found audiobooks to be the best way to consume books, but the new Audible has a Netflix like catalog of unlimited reads in addition to a monthly book to keep. Your first book is free or if you’re a Prime member, then your first two books are free.
