For the longest time, it was just Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video (formerly Amazon Video On Demand and Amazon Unbox). Now it seems like every network is coming out with it's own streaming platform. Of the 20+ popular video streaming services out there, which ones do YOU subscribe to or use? Are you a "cord cutter"? And, have you unsubscribed from cable and satellite TV in favor of streaming services (as most young people have)?
I have Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, and Disney+ (though I do share the last two on a family plan to cut costs).
I have had YouTube Premium and CBS AllAccess in the past, but I generally unsubscribe when I'm done binging on a particular show that I'm interested in. I would consider doing the same for Hulu, if I show I really liked was on there.
I don't pay (and haven't ever paid) for cable TV. I found that my basic cable package that comes with my Internet service, allows me to stream channels through the Amazon Fire TV apps that technically aren't actually included in my package. So, I can watch a lot of things that way for free. I also have found that almost every show I want to want to watch is available online, and, honestly, a lot of the original content on Amazon and Netflix is better than many of the shows on regular TV. Plus, I love not watching commercials any more.
PlutoTV has some pretty decent quality TV for free. Some of the news channels on Pluto are pretty good quality, and there's also lots of re-runs of shows and movies. There's even a 24/7 cat channel lol - where all you get is non-stop cat videos lol!
I also subscribe to the NLL through Bleacher Report. I'm a huge box lacrosse fan! Gotta watch my Bandits beat the Saskatchewan Rush lol! Honestly, it is probably the most fun sport to watch! It's very similar to hockey, but much more intense and lots of goals!
I've also tried Sling but ended-up not keeping it - not worth the price for what you get (in my opinion).

Hervard: In case anyone's wondering, that is a sentence I made up using the eight "exception" words to the "i before e except after c" rule - words with a long "e" sound, that is. I learned all of this in English class in my junior year in HS.

J.T.: Frickin' English...here are a couple mind-blowing sentences, in that they are grammatically correct: "All the faith he had had had had no effect on the outcome of his life" or "The complex houses married and single soldiers and their families."

J.T.: Some languages have tongue twisters. We don't need those in English. The whole gosh darn language is a tongue twister and a mind bender!

Soul Break: jajajajja They're cool! But yes, the languge itself is a tongue twister! lol
