TOO MANY STREAMING SERVICES. NOT ENOUGH STREAMING SERVICES. TOO MANY STREAMING SERVICES. NOT ENOUGH
Larry Tubelle offered up a question this week. One which has floated around the Entertainosphere for several years.
How many streaming services is too many?
Let me answer, "I have no idea."
I've been content to "game" the system as much as possible using multiple emails for free trials, which are usually 7 to 30 days. Drawback is you have to remember to cancel, or you do get charged.
And I joined the services which have provided the most entertainment that fits what I/we like to watch. Prime. Netflix. Hulu. HBOMAX.
I've flirted with Paramount, Apple TV, and AMC+. Have also done freebies via STARZ, Acorn, BBC America, Disney+, and CNN+.
Okay, I didn't do the CNN+.
The proverbial trick might be to curate the services via an on-line search without committing and decide what works best for your lifestyle. Subscribe to those services, and when a "freebie" comes up, take the trial, but schedule a day and time to CANCEL.
Finally, if you start dating (That's French for "fucking") someone you can cadge their subscription channels, but the sex better be good.
Or, we could go back to NBC, CBS, ABC, and that annoying Pledge Channel.
