How many paid streaming services are you subscribed to? Plan on adding more?

Let the streaming wars commence.

The options are growing as fast as the individual app costs and the total costs to stream hitting the pockets. I cut the cord on cable 4 years ago. Get my entertainment content from various paid, free, and 'other' online sources. I also use Firestick/Firecube in my home and it features a variety of free apps like Mobdro (live TV streaming), Tubi TV, Crackle, and IMDb TV that have free movies and TV shows. And there's always YouTube and social media to access free content.

I'm currently subscribed to:

- TIDAL @ $9.99/month. I must have my music wherever I go!
- Hulu @ $0.99/month. Got a 12-month sub on a Black Friday sale last year.
- WWE Network @ $9.99/month. Got to have my rasslin.

Recently canceled Netflix to test if I will miss it (not really, but kinda). My family and friend who also uses the account haven't said anything, yet. Otherwise, that's like another $17/month.

- I plan on trying Disney+. Maybe bundle it with ESPN+ & Hulu.
- I will try HBO Max. WB's library is deep.
- FX Now's content is piquing my interest too, hmmm...

For now, I'm subscribed to 3-4 paid streaming services at about $460/year. If/when I add Disney+ and HBO Max then I'd roughly be around $680/year on streaming services. That's still better than a cable package which I'd guess is at best like $120/month or $1,440/year.


What about you?

Re: How many paid streaming services are you subscribed to? Plan on adding more?

Right now I have Netflix (currently using to watch Star Trek and a bunch of other older shows), Hulu (currently using to catch up on shows that I miss during the week), Amazon Prime (which TBH, I used less for streaming and more for the free shipping), and WWE Network (which gives me my wrestling fix).

I am going to get the DC streaming service on a part time basis just to watch all the DC animated films I want to see.

Other than that, yeah, no, I'm good.

Hulu + Live TV

That's it.. Netflix while it does have the random occasional good series, I can usually just sub to it every 3-4 months, binge it all out in 30 days or less and cancel again..

NJPW World
Amazon Prime

I live with my parents at the moment who still have cable, which is nice for the live sports aspect. And my dad uses the network for older shows so I just use his account while he uses my amazon account.

But yeah when I live on my own I'll probably do YoutubeTV given that I like their sports package (I need YES network and NBC Sports for my NASCAR and Yankee games).

But I feel like we're rapidly heading towards a place where there are going to be so many different streaming services that will cycle back to something akin to cable. Seems like there are almost too many choices now with too many different options.

Funnily enough, I just cancelled the WWE Netwok.

I am subscribed to NJPW World, Audible and am using my friend's Netflix account and was subscribed to Sky Show for Game of Thrones until May. Also probably gonna get Sky Sports soon for Premier League and Bundesliga.

For the new ones, I think I will just change up what I am subscribed to every few months depending on what I'm watching at the time as I tend to focus on just 1-3 shows at a time.

Re: How many paid streaming services are you subscribed to? Plan on adding more?

I pay 154.40 per year for the license fee (this is a requirement for "normal" TV in the UK, everyone has to pay) so I have access to all the UK shows on demand. Other than that, 9.99 for WWE Network only, but in my head this is very much PPV as I don't subscribe every single month.

I find it very hard to justify subscriptions for anything (no cable, no prime etc). I find it insane some of you guys are spending 4 figures per year on this, but each to there own

Re: How many paid streaming services are you subscribed to? Plan on adding more?

I actually visited my moms place this week and she has Basic cable. I was surprised to see that I could watch many shows from cable online with a login, watch at my own time and share the account. I never new that. There was so many shows on there that I enjoy to watch over netflix. Amazon Prime video has already started filling in everything with Cable tv add ons that cost additional money to pay for and you have to sift through when browsing there website. It is in Canada currently and may work its way to the USA.
