As someone who has subscriptions to Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and HBO Go, it can be difficult to know which shows are available to me on which services. It gets even more confusing when I can’t find a show that I was meaning to watch, only to discover it was cut from its library.

Plus, there are times when I hear about a new show that sounds awesome but I’m not sure which streaming services play it. Is it on Netflix? Or will I need to grab a Showtime subscription to watch it? Who knows. Even if you search Google for this info, it can be hard to find.

Until recently, I used an app called Yahoo Video Guide for these things, but that’s only available as a mobile app. Now I use a site called JustWatch, which has been absolutely perfect so far.

Using it is simple enough. You have two options.

The first option is to type in a show or movie in the search box. The results are divided into Stream and Buy, meaning which streaming services play it and where you can buy video-on-demand access to it. If you click through on one of the Buy choices, it’ll tell you how much it costs.

The second option is to go to the home page and toggle the different streaming services by clicking on them. This updates the listing to only include shows and movies on those streaming services. In conjunction with the filters, this is a great way to find new shows to watch that are definitely available on the streaming services you have.

And the best part about JustWatch is that it covers more than just the United States, which is a big drawback to other sites like it. Supported areas include Canada, Mexico, U.K., Germany, Scandinavia, Japan, South Korea, and even Australia and New Zealand.
