10 Best Streaming Services That Offer Yearly Subscription

While monthly subscriptions remain the more popular and flexible option for most users, annual subscriptions still have notable benefits to them. For one, they're often cheaper. Amazon Prime, for example, slashes almost $40 on its membership fee when paid annually rather than monthly. A yearly payment also saves you from the burden of having to make the same decision constantly; no need to see the same biller charge you multiple times a year. 

Sadly, it's not an offer available to all streaming services. Below, we list the best ones that do have annual payments as an option. It may not be a long list, but if you're a dedicated subscriber who's sure to use the same streaming service for months, then it's sure to be a useful one.
