Netflix, Hulu and Prime Video libraries: how much overlap?

Reelgood claims to be the world’s most extensive streaming guide, with every TV show and movie available to stream online. Customers can browse through every TV series and sort by title, release year, genre, IMDB rating, and most importantly, they can see where to watch it, with the added convenience of playing with a single click or tap. Wired magazine says Reelgood is “…the easiest, most powerful universal search engine for all streaming services.”

The streaming service search engine’s PR department decided to research how many titles are available on Netflix that are also available on Hulu and Prime Video. The company says it had noticed people were asking for information on this subject on both Quora and Reddit. The results of the research have been formulated into two Venn diagrams illustrating movie overlap and TV show overlap, both of which are pictured below.

Unfortunately, no particular titles are mentioned in this research data, but please let us know below if you are aware of the overlap and any other gems of information you yourselves have picked up and can add.

  1. This seems like an odd comparison.

    Netflix and Hulu are curated subscription services which both offer a permanent selection of original titles and a rotating selection of licensed material that’s constantly in flux. Those two services are relatively similar.

    Amazon Prime Video is actually two different services. One of those services is very similar to Hulu and Netflix. But the other portion of their service is as a digital retailer that both rents and sells titles a la carte and not as part of a subscription.

    I think comparing a subscription service (which is the modern equivalent to a premium cable network like HBO) to an a la carte service (which is the modern equivalent to a video store) doesn’t make much sense. It’s apples and oranges, and in my experience here, just leads to confusion among those who have yet to try non-physical media.

  2. CBS doesn't disclose its All Access numbers, but says that it is doing very well. They've signed Alex Kurtzman to a $25 million per year contract to develop and run multiple Star Trek shows exclusively on that platform, with at least four shows in development. And they've got Jordan Peele doing a new version of Twilight Zone. So whatever the numbers actually are, they're currently spending a lot of money to make it a noteworthy destination.
