The number of streaming services for movies and TV shows continues to rise. Disney+ launched recently, and mainstays like Netflix and Hulu are still going strong. On top of that, multiple services allow you to rent or buy your favorite content. The plus side of that is that there's more content than ever to enjoy. The downside is that you'll need a lot of apps and subscriptions to see all of your favorite content (not to mention trying to figure out what to watch). Here are the best apps to make sure you can stream all of your favorite films and TV shows.

There's never been a better time to be a fan of movies and TV now that a lot of us are working from home. Hundreds of thousands of shows and movies are at your fingertips on a whole slew of Internet-connected devices. That includes Windows 10 PCs, which allow you to stream content whether you rent it, buy it, or get it through a subscription.

Vudu is the most versatile movie and TV service that has an app on Windows 10. With it, you can buy or rent movies before they're out on Blu-ray or DVD. You can also convert your own DVDs to digital content that you can watch on Vudu for a price. On top of that, Vudu is part of Movies Anywhere, meaning if you buy content on any supported service, you can see it on Vudu and vice versa.

If you prefer to binge watch TV shows, Netflix should be your first port of call. It's been on the streaming market since the beginning and is an excellent service for streaming TV shows and films.
