Guide to Burger Centric Streaming Programs

I know exactly how you’re feeling which is why I created this Guide to Burger Centric Streaming Programs.

There is just so much content out there but how much of it is really entertaining or even worth your time?

I’ve divided the page by Hulu, Netflix, Prime Video, YouTube, and On-Demand, which is pretty much a la carte paid content.

A few programs are available through different streaming services so I’d suggest you look around before you spend a nickel on anything.

By the way, that’s just a phrase. I’m pretty sure that there is not one thing that costs five cents anymore.

Don’t know where to start? I’d suggest George Motz’s Hamburger America documentary. Shortly after watching Hamburger America I kickstarted my site Burger Beast. It was a great inspiration.

Hamburger America directed by George Motz, Film Length - 54:02

DescriptionHamburger America is a documentary film that tells the story of eight deliciously unique hamburger locations across the country and the people behind the burgers. Each restaurant featured in the film has been around for more than forty years, uses only fresh meat, and in many cases can boast the fact that ownership has stayed within the same family. Not only is each establishment family-run, but their booths, counters, and stools have seen families come together and grow over the years. The tenets of tradition, family, and pride are what make Hamburger America a truly American tale.
