A thread to discuss the ongoing balkanization of streaming, cord-cutting, new options, lament and laud the coming and going of new competitors and so on.

Sound off with your obsessive subscriptions!

I'm using Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, Mubi, Criterion, HBO Max, Showtime; might very well find myself doing Apple+ if I upgrade my phone/ipad at some point but can't imagine getting Disney.

I have netflix. That is all.

Plus a space to talk about delivery services! Roku, Playstation Vue and the like.

Give thanks and praise to PLEX, which is free, has virtually no ads and mostly just magically works.

We use a Roku and currently pay for Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu and we have HBO Go since we currently have it in our cable package. We've been considering ditching cable completely, but when we talk to our provider (Xfinity) they want so much $$ for our internet service alone without a bundle that it still doesn't make sense. Since my wife works from home as a consultant and does a lot of video editing, we need a dependable connection. They really still push the bundles so dropping the cable alone doesn't seem to be the cost savings we hope for.

I know for sure we'll add Disney+ and I'm pushing for the Criterion one too, unsuccessfully thus far.

soaring skrrrtpeggios (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Wednesday, 2 October 2019 15:46 (four years ago) link

I am curious, how much of a difference is it just for internet, vs internet+cable where you are?

Yerac, Wednesday, 2 October 2019 15:49 (four years ago) link

i cord cut earlier this year with the Hulu/No Ads cable package and i have not missed cable at all. I think it's $60 for that package and another $65 for high speed internet.
Supplementing occasionally with tt0rre3ntz helps keep FOMO at bay.

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Wednesday, 2 October 2019 15:50 (four years ago) link

I have Hulu and Amazon Prime. I had a Showtime add-on through Hulu while Billions was airing, but dropped it after that; I had HBO for a while through Amazon to watch Insecure and Big Little Lies, but dropped that too.

If a show is on a particular streaming platform, it'll often be available for rent/purchase through Amazon, so if it looks really good I'll do that sometimes. I barely ever watch movies anymore - maybe one a month, so none of the movie-oriented services are at all appealing. And since there are no kids in my house, I don't have to worry about Disney, Marvel, etc.

xp I'd be curious to hear more about Plex's video features, I have a server installed but only use it for music.

Currently we've got Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Shudder ... at some point I want to shut down my Uverse TV service and switch to Hulu or YouTube or some other way to stream live sports and Turner Classic Movies.

Brad C., Wednesday, 2 October 2019 15:51 (four years ago) link

I'm not sure offhand, my wife is the biggest push for cutting the cord in our house and she's been the one talking to them directly. Iirc, we pay around $140 for both right now, but I think she said they'd still want nearly $100 for just internet.

soaring skrrrtpeggios (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Wednesday, 2 October 2019 15:52 (four years ago) link

i pay for netflix (though i should really stop, i watch almost nothing on it), hulu (through spotify which is practically like not paying for it), shudder (the greatest), and criterion. i've never had cable as an adult

american bradass (BradNelson), Wednesday, 2 October 2019 15:52 (four years ago) link

Hulu's live TV option is ridiculously expensive, to me.

I should add that I also have a digital antenna that pulls in network TV and some other channels like ION (lots of cop-show reruns) and Grit (old Western shows).

shared unit of analysis (unperson), Wednesday, 2 October 2019 15:53 (four years ago) link

yeah, I haven't had cable for a very, very long time (15 years?) and I was wondering how much of a difference it is these days to not have them bundled.

Yerac, Wednesday, 2 October 2019 15:53 (four years ago) link

I recently saw a meme about how all these subscription services with unique programming is basically reinventing into a more tedious cable tv.

Yerac, Wednesday, 2 October 2019 15:55 (four years ago) link

Yep. Thanks capitalism for taking an legitimately game-changing technology and just turning it back into the old overpriced thing we all hated 20 years ago.

soaring skrrrtpeggios (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Wednesday, 2 October 2019 16:04 (four years ago) link

Remember back in the 1990s when they kept promising truly ala carte cable packages? "Only pay for the channels you actually watch!". Well it's here now, finally, except you have to pay $9.99 to $12.99 for each of the channels.

We currently pay for Netflix (incl. dvds!), get Hulu through a friend's account, and HBO Go through a family account that was supposedly canceled but still magically works! All through PS4. Have never rented/bought a digital show or movie a la carte.

change display name (Jordan), Wednesday, 2 October 2019 16:14 (four years ago) link

if you were to buy all the above with hulu as a basic cable delivery option, that plus hi-speed internet would run you around $275 a month for television.

I highly recommend just downloading PLEX as it's free. Basically, if you have any kind of smart tv option, you can stream whatever you download directly to your television.

That netflix standard plan for me is $8usd a month but it's another country's pay structure I guess.

although do people really torrent tv shows and movies that much anymore when you can find a free stream of almost anything?

for me it's most helpful when the tv show in question just isn't commercially available in my region

omg the user interfaces -- yeah some are really bad -- some are not awful, but are crap when it comes to subtitle options

i watch stuff via roku -- my roku is about 6 yrs old at this point and seems to be "dying" -- is this just standard planned obsolescence?

sarahell, Wednesday, 2 October 2019 17:11 (four years ago) link

among the most frustrating things is that depending on your device, the interface and remote controls are totally different! You can't even play Criterion on an Amazon Fire and you can't play Mubi on a Playstation. Prime is easy to explore on a Fire but nearly impossible on a Roku. Everything's fucked!

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Wednesday, 2 October 2019 17:15 (four years ago) link

I do Netflix and will do Disney+. More often than not, if I want to see a movie badly enough I buy a physical copy or, if that isn't an option, just watch that shit on YouTube or whatever. I watched a shitty, washed-out '30s movie on Internet Archive this weekend because it appears to have never been released via any legit home video format. Does that count as a streaming service?

Furter-Bursting Tater Squirter (Old Lunch), Wednesday, 2 October 2019 17:28 (four years ago) link

youtube and archive.org certainly remain the people's netflix if netflix isn't already the people's netflix

I still pay for cable (and the Criterion Channel) but need to talk to people who get TCM through other services.

Anne Hedonia (j.lu), Wednesday, 2 October 2019 19:54 (four years ago) link

i'm dumping cable as soon as we get fiber internet installed at the end of the month, and signed up for Hulu Live. This looks like it'll save me about $80 a month for basically the same channels and faster internet than the shitty Comcast service I have. Still have netflix, amazon prime, and hbo through hulu. I'll pick up disney as well.

akm, Thursday, 3 October 2019 01:45 (four years ago) link

oh yeah, and we use the latest generation Apple TVs. I had a Roku that was a few years old and yes, it crapped out. The apps developed by the providers become too resource intensive for the devices.

akm, Thursday, 3 October 2019 01:46 (four years ago) link

"That netflix standard plan for me is $8usd a month but it's another country's pay structure I guess." how is this possible?

i use vrv sometimes for anime and amazon until my last ill-advised prime resub runs out next year, and that's it.

Moving to the Los Angeles area with its video stores and cinemas means not having to really care about any of this shit and it rocks.

Whiney G. Weingarten, Thursday, 3 October 2019 02:16 (four years ago) link

We cut the cable 2-3 years ago and had Vue for about a year until a price hike, then Sling. The current fight between Fox and Dish/Sling has cramped my baseball watching, so I'm going to drop all channel-package delivery in the next few weeks and not worry about it until the next season of Better Call Saul starts. Dropping Sling and not renewing MLB.tv next season will free up more than enough $$ for Disney, which my wife wants to get. Otherwise, we have Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, CBS (for my wife) and Criterion (for me). Our donation to our PBS affiliate is just big enough to give us access to everything on the PBS channel.

When Filmstruck shut down, Fandor offered subscribers a special deal -- I think it was $25 for a year? Anyway, I got that but probably won't renew it.

WmC, Thursday, 3 October 2019 02:20 (four years ago) link

Netflix & Prime, but in Australia we can also access iView and SBS On Demand, which are half-decent public broadcaster options.

Tsar Bombadil (James Morrison), Thursday, 3 October 2019 06:21 (four years ago) link

I signed up for Youtube TV so I could talk my mom into ditching her cable bill (you can share accounts with 2-3 people) and it's been the best cable replacement I've experienced. No buffering, standard TV Guide style menu, good enough channel selection. I'm so used to going straight to Netflix or Prime I rarely think of opening the app unless I want to watch sports, though.

Netflix and mlb.tv are free w/ my cell phone, I keep forgetting to cancel HBO Now, keep Prime out of habit, pay for the Criterion Channel so I can feel guilty when I'm too numb at the end of the day to watch something with subtitles and just turn on a CW sci-fi show on Netflix instead.

Greta Van Show Feets BB (milo z), Thursday, 3 October 2019 07:04 (four years ago) link

I have Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime. I watch all of these via roku as well as a fair amount of free YouTube and Twitch. I also use roku to play music via Spotify, as the TV plugs straight into my stereo.

The quality of film selections on Netflix seems to have really plummeted lately. Amazon has the best selections of those three.

I'm strongly considering Disney+ because I'm a sucker and want to watch the Star Wars shows.

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Thursday, 3 October 2019 11:36 (four years ago) link

akm xpost. I set up my netflix in Chile so the fees are 4,990; 5,990; and 8,990clp for the 3 tiers. There is currency fluctuation of course but it's been in the $8 range at least for the last year (I just checked) regardless if I am using it in the US or Europe.

Yerac, Thursday, 3 October 2019 12:25 (four years ago) link

The US version of The Circle on Netflix used to be filmed in the UK, even though the whole show takes place within an anonymous apartment building. But I think it's now filmed somewhere in the US.

Shogun out today and looks great

groovypanda, Tuesday, 27 February 2024 16:39 (one week ago) link

Ok finished Mr & Mrs Smith, agree with some of the criticisms after completing it. I think the show would have benefitted from being 10 episodes rather than 8; we would have gotten a little more early establishment on how the relationship grows. Clearly the show pivots hard to being about marriage and the spy elements become a secondary scaffolding for examining this dynamic. Oddly I felt like the final episode was a bit too long. I saw the ending coming a mile away and was slightly disappointed it went exactly where I expected it to. Having said all that, I still liked it.

I? not I! He! He! HIM! (akm), Tuesday, 27 February 2024 17:20 (one week ago) link

I'm suprised at all the love for it. It felt like a big nothing burger to me. Why were they doing what they did? What was their motivation to even sign up? What was the point of any of the assasinations/rescues they did? Like, especially Ron Perlman's character? If that first place was a safe house why'd they all get shot at?

Why was Paul Dano set up as an ominous man-next-door who never ended up doing anything bad?

Why didnt anyone notice Turturro went missing? he was a fucking billionare philanthropist!

I just couldnt suspend my whatever with any of it.

Loudermilk on Netflix - amateurishly shot but amusing. Gets two Brockmires out of 3.

papal hotwife (milo z), Thursday, 29 February 2024 04:06 (five days ago) link

Was wondering why I never had heard of that show, but then I checked wiki:

Loudermilk originally premiered on AT&T's Audience Network. Its first season debuted in 2017. On April 12, 2018, Audience renewed the series for a second season, which it premiered on October 16, 2018. On December 5, 2018, it was announced that Audience had renewed the series for a third season, but the network ceased operations in May 2020, prior to the third season's scheduled airing.

I totally don't remember AT&T having a streaming network.

Society of the Snow on Netflix is really incredible. I don't think you could do a better job of getting across the horror and hardship of the situation (though my wife and i both claimed we wouldn't have a problem eating our fellow passengers, and she's a vegetarian!). Terrific cast.

First I was surprised that show was still on the air, then I was surprised this was the third season, then I was surprised that Piper Laurie was still alive, then I remembered she wasn't and that that was Jean Smart, and then I tried to remember the Jean Smart role that brought her back fore of mind before the first season of "Hacks," and then I remembered she was in season 2 of "Fargo" and man, was she good in that. I should rewatch that series from the beginning.

i sort of think the show is predicated on the idea of “better if no humans in it” or more specifically humans as uniquely disruptive and dangerous aliens, though capable of high levels of empathetic response (again for better or worse), and is quite distressing in these respects. it’s one of the best fables of the relationship between humans and the environment i’ve seen.

I haven't watched it yet but mentioned on The Good Wife thread that Elsbeth is a character that seems best in small doses (I do plan to check it out though cause I pretty much love any show by the Kings).

I would suggest maybe watching some of her Good Wife/Good Fight episodes? They're always a treat and iirc she tends to appear on case-of-the-week episodes so you don't have to have watched the rest of the show to figure out what's going on.
