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.

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 (one year 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 (one year 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 (one year 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 (one year 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 (one year 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 (one year 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 (one year 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.

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.

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 (one year 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.

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 (one year 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 (one year 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 (one year 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 (one year 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 (one year 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.

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

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 (one year 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 (one year 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 (one year 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 (one year 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 (one year 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.

I was also at the SF show. Tons of fun as a live performance. Being able to see everything from different angles (lots of great views from a camera looking directly down onto the stage and from views seemingly on stage with the performers) adds a different dimension.

Has anyone seen the first two episodes of Luca Guadagnino's "We Are Who We Are" yet on HBO? It sounds interesting to me, and I liked reading that Tom Mercier is in it (next to Zhao Tao in Ash Is Purest White, his performance in Synonyms in 2019 was my favorite of the year, and a first-time film role)

Dan S, Tuesday, 20 October 2020 23:50 (one month ago) link

I've been watching it and it is... something? I appreciate its unwillingness to clearly delineate a plot but many of the character arcs (especially for the adults) are telegraphed so awkwardly and unbelievably that it takes me out of the moment. The kids are basically all worth watching, even when they are badly written. Kid Cudi is a very bad actor. Everyone is super horny in really mannered ways. All sorts of cock on display.

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Wednesday, 21 October 2020 01:19 (one month ago) link

Dan S, Wednesday, 21 October 2020 01:26 (one month ago) link

more prosaically: it's about a US military base in Italy and the twin societies of the adults and their high school age kids with an emphasis on all their sex lives and shifting gender definitions.

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Wednesday, 21 October 2020 01:33 (one month ago) link

there's an obvious and inappropriate flirtation between the fifteen year old kid and his mother's second in command that is unnecessarily and gauzily shipped here as it is overt in nature; i presume they make out in the current episode.

Katzenberg is NOT wasting any time investing more into mobile content:

This new pay-to-listen outlet is setting up as a news and politics service, with six original and exclusive podcasts ined up, starring Laura Ingraham, Soledad O’Brien, Gretchen Carlson, Mike Huckabee, Andrew Gillum, Marc Lamont Hill and Buck Sexton.

Rosenberg is quoted in Axios saying, “We’re like that next version of satellite radio. The digital version.”

I've seen all of them except for one which I fell asleep during (which my wife said was the saddest one). They are all as good as that one, more or less. Some are better than others. None of them are bad. I think it's a pretty remarkable collection of stories.
