We all love Netflix, but after a while, even Netflix becomes boring because there’s nothing else on it that we haven’t watched that we would like. So instead of roaming around the Internet looking for other shows or watching boring cable television, we’ve put a list together of the best alternatives out there — whether they’re movies, shows, news or other entertainment. A lot of this programming is bingeworthy while we await the return of soccer.

Many of these streaming services that we’ve researched offer free trials, so you can kick the tires and see which ones are the best fit for you.

While sports are taking a break, many of these streaming services will feature live soccer when the leagues return to action.
