How many streaming services do you have?

As the title says, how many streaming services do you subscribe to? I cut the cord in hopes of saving money, but have found that my monthly subscriptions for streaming services are starting to add up. I've got Netflix, DAZN, Prime, Crave, and soon Disney. Am I doing something wrong?

Netflix (use GFs account), Amazon Prime (use mom's account). DAZN (Free lifetime from a contest).

Also use Kanopy and Hoopla with my library card.

Netflix (friend's account) I hardly use it. Other than that, no pay services.
I use free TV shows and Movies apps and the same for IPTV too.

Currently just using my cousins netflix and will have Prime whenever it makes sense to get the free shipping on something, so maybe like 3-4 months a year.

I guess were at 3. We have Netflix/Prime/DAZN.

It's not that clear though. We got 6 months of Prime for free because one of us went back to school to get a license and it qualified. DAZN is on a free 2 month promo from the RFD thread (Which were using for NFL). We may hypothetically share Netflix with family :)

We'll probably keep DAZN until NFL season ends. Might keep prime because it'll be half price. Netflix is ok if you share with family and split the cost. No way we'd pay full price for all 3. I'm pretty sure we'll keep netflix as long as they don't ramp up enforcement on sharing. Prime as long as it's a discount for being a student, and DAZN for football season only. We will probably buy Disney when it comes out. That one will be interesting because it'll be cheaper if you buy it by the year, which is something we'd totally do.

Lol. Interesting, seems like most people have quite a few - but that they are shared among family members, etc. Mine aren't shared so I'm feeling the pain of having to pay for all of them :(. I really wish that there was less fragmentation in the streaming industry. Sigh.

I'm in the same boat... I pay for Netflix, Crave and Prime, and I'm coming up to a point where I'll probably drop something to get Disney+. Thankfully Kanopy and Hoopla are free through the library.

I also refuse to torrent anymore. I pirated for years when I was younger, but I don't mind supporting good content now that I am in a better place to afford to.

Netflix / Amazon Prime / DAZN and Disney+ when it<ll be available next month.

My brother is sharing his Netflix account with me, and I'm sharing my DAZN account with a friend. My Disney+ will also be shared Winking Face

Netflix, Crave and Amazon Prime. Will probably get Disney+ for a year and see what it's like before deciding whether to keep it or not.
