Default What streaming services have you dropped?

I've dropped netflix as of last night. I'm just not watching anything on it and I kept my sub for other people. I worked out a deal with them last night, shared my hulu stuff and my new HBO Max sub.



Next thing to lose is Disney Plus, which I got for my GF during lockdown. Haven't touched it in weeks at this point.



I tried with Amazon Prime video but considering my 'love' for amazon, it was always on borrowed time. Again, just not enough.


I'm more of a movie person than I am a tv series person and what I do like Hulu has.



So, what have you dropped?

Amazon Prime: due to some hacker. Will stay clear of that until it's all cleared up.

Telekom Entertain: terrible receiver, terrible package, terrible prices.

Thinking about getting rid of Sky too

CBS All Active. The shows I watch on it are all on hiatus: Blue Bloods, Seal Team, FBI, and FBI Most Wanted. Picard was a huge disappointment IMO and I gave up on ST: Discovery. Nothing else on there that interests me now.

I'd drop Hulu as well, but I'm on a promo plan and only paying $5/mo for the next 6 months. There are a couple of shows on there that I follow.

They still haven't come out with ST Discovery season 3 yet? I'd drop Disney Plus (my gf had had enough disney cartoon time by now, right??) for CBS then.


Hulu lacks in the "original content" game but makes up for it with what else it currently has access too from certain networks. However, that's going away too soo......

2/3 subs for me were free but most likely will get dropped. Amazon and Apple TV.

Netflix will keep. Don’t have Disney+ I think in my country though I didn’t try.

Haven't dropped anything yet, but I recently got the HBO Max app on the PS4...it ****ing blows. Maybe it's better on the PC or smart TVs, but I'm always resetting it on my PS4 AFTER EVERY EPISODE OF ANY SHOW in order to get the next one to start (currently watching Westworld). It's annoying as all hell, but the content so far is decent.

I only have Amazon Prime due to the Prime shipping. Enough video for now. I still have basic cable though. Still debating on getting NFL Redzone depending on how if/the season progresses.

We recently "traded" and dropped HBO and picked up Hulu.

We have Netflix, Prime, Hulu, and KDN.

I think crunchy roll is included in HBO Max, gonna have to check.



Curious how many people won't drop Netflix. They know they've got a crazy attach rate and this tiny sample size is showing it.

Last I checked HBO Max has some of Crunchyroll's stuff but not all. I'm really mercenary about HBO, only upping when GoT and now Westworld is going on but as soon those shows end so does my subscription. My problem right now is my AppleTV gen 3 is not supported (And I just found out that the ABC app no longer supports it either) so I've been holding off on HBO even though I haven't watched the last 2 eps of Westworld.

And no the current AppleTV is way way way too old to pick up right now. Either a new one of those or our current TV dies seeing how all the new TV's are smart nowadays.

Also still have Netflix since Amex Plat is paying for it. Mom had her world wide tour pinched by the pandemic but managed to break even on the card before that (I hear its like one of the best travel cards out there despite the steep annual) and now free Netflix, an Ubereats once a month and $20 off monthly on our cell plan is just icing on the cake. Probably have to drop Netflix and the Amex before the next annual hits.

I definitely don't watch it as much as I used to, but I love stand-up comedy and they release top-of-the-line specials about once every ten days. "Old" stand-up is good for falling asleep.

TV Guide snippets and trailers . . .

We have Amazon Prime, mainly because of all my wife's purchases/shipping, but the video selection isn't bad.

I just dumped Netflix as well. I'll sub for a month when something decent shows up.

We have the same. Wife doesn’t want to cut Hulu but can’t name a show she wants to watch on it May just cancel one day and see if it’s even noticed.

Dropped Britbox. Don't get me wrong. It is a good service. My problem was that the majority of stuff that they have on there I already had on my private home server.

CBS - Star Trek isn't good and they didn't really have that much else that I was interested in.

I'm toying with dropping Netflix. Their selection is weak these days.


On a side note, I'd love to pay for some Adult Swim if that means that I can do away with the commercials. Same with Discovery.

Haven't dropped any yet but only running with 3 atm (netflix, stan, amazon). Covers most of everything.

I have a lot of shows on netflix I've yet to watch yet, so I won't dump it yet.

Haven't dropped anything myself out of Netflix, Prime, Hulu, HBO, and VRV. Will probably drop HBO at some point, I pick it up here and there so that's normal and I keep meaning to stop VRV. I mean, I like some of their stuff like Harmon Quest and getting Crunchy Roll through them is nice, but I haven't watched either of those in a couple months now. Think it started going downhill when they kept losing channels, was extremely bummed when Shudder left. Think I can safely put that one away for the time being. Might actually switch it to picking up Shudder instead.

We do a rotating schedule, watch the couple of things that a given service provides that interest us, then drop it and get a different one.


Netflix so far has been a constant because they come out with things we want to watch on a fairly regular basis.

Amazon I can't see dropping simply because it's all tied in with the shipping/music/etc that my wife uses a lot.

But rotate HBO, Showtime, Hulu, Disney+, and soon probably AppleTv.

I was going to drop Hulu, but then the wife and I were scrolling for a good comedy and found the full series of Animaniacs on Hulu. Time to binge watch. Hulu gets a reprieve.

We only have Netflix and Disney+.

I think we considered dropping Netflix at one point but kept it since every now and then we'd find something we'd watch on it. Ditto Disney+.

Any ad supported ones (like Cruncyroll and Funimation) we just deal with the endless stream of ads lol. It sucks cuz they play the same ads (in funimation's case they are in groups of 6.....) at each advertisement interval so it can get very annoying.

One of them (i forget which) has horribly mistimed ad placement that they interrupt the flow of a scene rather than occuring at the end of a scene where a "break" in the action occurs. And its usually right at the end of something happening or at the last "act" of a scene so to speak so when it gets resumed after the ad is finished you see like 1 min of the end of the act before the next act begins.....It also occurs right at the end of the show too so you see 1 mins of whatever is left at the end of the show and then the credits pop up lol.

I cut Netflix and Hulu as I haven't been watching much on them lately, and I have been cutting my budget down in preparation for the layoff that is coming any week now.

I still have Amazon Prime/CBS all access that is tied to my Amazon Prime account, as well as Disney + that is free for the first year with Verizon.

Part of the reason I haven't watched much from Hulu is that due to Covid-19, a lot of shows that I used Hulu to watch haven't released any new episodes, or the seasons ended. I suspect new seasons that usually start coming out in September/October will be delayed due to Covid-19. Netflix is pretty much the same thing. I will resubscribe when new episodes of the series both Hulu and Netflix carry that I watch come out.

Dropped
Netflix

Have
Amazon Prime

Reason:
Netflix was never used by me after a while and only served my sister and niece who have their own account now.

Twitch Prime sunk cost fallacy due to games each week/month

Due to rising prices, everyone and their mother releasing a streaming platform and said platforms pulling content for their own services anything I can't find on Prime it's yar har fiddle dee de.
