There's too many streaming services!!
You'll end up shelling out 100+ bucks a month just to watch TV. It's idiotic.
The prices aren't all that great either, they just keep raising the prices.
More expensive now than cable if you want to watch everything available
originals) legally Let's see:
Netflix: 8 (if you don't get their HD which is just stupid)
HBO Now: 15
I'm sure I've missed a few. Of course, if you're a gamer, then you have all the game-streaming services popping up as well. Most games are adopting a model of pay-to-play and eventually will move away from selling you actual copies of games and you just "rent" them.
None of these include Sports, News etc. So most people *have* to get at least basic Cable for sports. Which is usually 25-50 bucks.
We're already at around 69-70 bucks a month. And this doesn't include the cost of internet itself (usually about $60-100 bucks) and internet bandwidth for a lot of people who have to literally pick and choose how much they can stream (not everyone has unlimited plans).
It's getting to that tricky area where they want you to have all three: Cable, Streaming and the Internet and on top of that, they still have advertising revenue from traditional TV as well as expensive business contracts.
It's not gonna get any better, only worse imo. I think give or take a couple of years, the streaming landscape will be very different to what it is now - and a lot more people will start streaming illegally again.
They're killing themselves with their own greed
