So what is the endgame for streaming services?

Recommended Posts

First we had Netflix, now we have Hulu, Amazon Prime, NBC, Apple TV+, ESPN+ etc.

 

Where are we heading? Is cable about to die completely?

 

This almost seems worse than cable. There is no way in hell I am paying $5 for a bunch of different streaming services that inevitably get shittier and less creative as the years go by. 

 

I think I would only be willing to pay for NFL TV (I don't know why they don't offer that), NBA TV,  maybe the local Fox station, and Amazon Prime. 

 

Not interested in anything else.

Disney plus coming soon too.

 

Tv cable will go extinct. I read somewhere that tradicional television still exists thanks to +50 year olds

I have neither. YouTube mostly and DVDs by mail but I'll stop doing that because it costs too much. I never had time for tv anyway. I could go for YouTube premium but I don't want an account.

I pay 120/yr for just about every channel, streaming service, movie, sporting event  that you can think of.  

10 bucks a month get me the assurance that someone else will look after the service. 

No searching, no troubleshooting. Just an email to the dude and he fixes it

I still have cable only so I can use the skip ahead 30 second button while watching recorded nba and nfl games. Once I can get top notch streams (DAZN sucks balls) I will cancel my cable.

netflix lost its value to me as soon as they started focusing on their terrible original content

they might put out one good show a year

Don't be a streaming cuck. Pirate yo shit.

I pirate a lot 😂 have not been to a movie theater in years!

 

Kinda like getting the demos free.

But when they drop an album I will pay money and support that!

People will get sick of streaming and demand that all the channels and content be combined into one service. You know, cable. It'll come back, and then one streaming service will buy the others, and people will start using that. Just wait til the 6 billion dollar Disney/Netflix merger.

I pirate 99% of my tv, especially for sports. I do have Hulu for live tv or if I feel like watching a movie. Most of the time I just put on Pluto tv, which is free.
