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?
