With so many streaming services nowadays it makes me wonder how come there aren't any services where you pay one monthly bill that covers all of the services that you choose to pay for. Kind of like an old cable subscription except for media streaming since you'll likely end up paying the same price you would normally for cable after trying to get every single streaming service on the internet. How come this isn't a thing yet?

With usenet, nzbs & you can have a "subscription" you pay for and have pretty much all the common media available to you.
That's considered pirating of course. Depending on the tools you use this can be pretty convenient too, but of course it's all on the PC.

Besides that, you can get a vpn and get more out of a netflix subscription.

because who the fuck needs to consume that much media?
the difference between cable television and a streaming service is that with cable you don't decide when you can watch the content. with streaming services, you're not bound to the network's schedule which means you don't have to have overlapping subscriptions. the content won't disappear for at least a few months.

Isn't that only good if you have one or two subscriptions? You would still have to pay for the rest yourself.

For the same reason most companies won't work together to sell a superior product. They aren't happy just making money, they want to make ALL the money.

I'm sure apps will arise where you can bundle your subscriptions for ease of access, but you'll still be paying for them individually.

Paying a middle man to subscribe to services for you is a waste of money. Its not that hard to give a streaming service your credit card number, and its not like one person needs more than a few.

In some countries while torrenting is technical illegal consumer protection laws still prevent these insufferable law firms to extort money in bulk from bit-torrent users.
This means nobody gets fined either because they would have to go after each person individually which isn't economically feasible.

To be clear, in some countries, those where the industry successfully bribed lawmakers to pervert copyright law they do go after everybody.
The crux is they threaten to sue you for not only the media you consume but also for the media everybody consumes who you transmit bittorrent chunks to.

In other countries they could only sue you for the media actively put on the platform or technically the media you download without owning the rights.
And that only for an amount that is akin to a fair market value, like a streaming fee.
So if you had 100 movies from torrent they could sue you for 1000 bucks. Big whoopdie doo...

In the countries which have perverted copyright laws the can potentially sue you for lets say 100^2 * 10, so 100000 bucks. Of course this actually never happens because sane courts throw out the case. But what they are doing instead is sending letters in bulk. They threaten to sue for like 100000 and ask for a "settlement" of lets say 2342.

I know a friend that Spotify college student account and she also gets Hulu and Showtime included for just $5 but that's all I know. Problem is that I can't see services like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime Video reducing their prices to include their video services with other ones for one subscription price on a whole other platform. Closest thing we really have is with Apple where you can use your Apple ID to connect all your subscribed streaming services through the TV app. I also use Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and HBO but I'm maxed on streaming services I'm willing to subscribe to. Everything else that's on DC Universe, Cinemax, Starz, Epix and all those other premium cable and streaming services that you have to subscribe to I'm better off just watching on a free television show streaming site.

I also do find it funny people are getting all up in arms about NBC taking back The Office from Netflix. I mean that shit was bound to happen eventually.

The state of television for decades:

>You wanna watch TV? Okay, that'll be $100 a month. Included in that price is 500 channels you don't give a fuck about, including free OTA channels. For an extra $20, we'll give you what you really want: HBO, Showtime, MTV, Disney Channel, etc. You just want HBO? Too bad, you gotta buy our basic tier first, $100.

Late 2000s:

>Hi, we're Netflix. For $10 a month, you get access to our catalogue of movies and tv shows.

>Hi, we're Hulu. For $10 a month, you get access to our catalogue of movies and shows.

>Hi, we're HBO. For $10 a month, you get access to our catalogue of movies and shows.

Retards in 2019:

>I'm tired of juggling all these subscription services. Can somebody just charge me $120 and give me everything?

People begged for à la carte tv services for years. We finally got it... Now people wanna jump back in bed with the scam artists, lmao.

If you're paying more than $20 a month for tv, you're a damn fool with your finances, period. There's no reason to have a bunch of streaming services. You get one, maybe two, pay for $10 fee for that month, catch up on all their shows/movies and let it expire after the month. Then you go to another streaming service, do the same thing.

You aren't missing out on anything by only having HBO 4 months out of the year. Their series are available year round and they don't cycle their movies that quickly either. The same can be said for practically every other service.

Its predicted that there is an impending fracture of streaming services similar to what is happening in Australia. In Australia there is a streaming service for sports and another reality television, you cant view any of the content on these two services on other platforms, both cost $10-$15P/M. its expected that this is going to be the dominant model and that netflix will begin to look more like a traditional cable service where you buy a netflix subscription and then purchase individual packages for the kind of content you want.

That being said, thats what disney is already gearing up for. There is going to be a steady increase in cost for particular content as more and more people shift away from traditional television sources.

You wont find any bargains on 2.5s. If you can fit 3.5" HDDs then your best bet is to wait for WD 8TB EasyStores to go on sale again(they go on sale all the time) at best buy and then shuck them. It is by far the cheapest per tb you can get.

Not in the 8TB EasyStores I pulled a ton of reds out of them before I upgraded my media servers and went with 12tb drives. Now there are some that have a 3.3v pin issue, the WMAZ from Thailand I believe, but that is simply fixed with some kapton tape.

They are not WD blacks, golds, or purples but they are better than greens(which are no longer made) or blues and are pretty much equal to reds if you don't get a "true" red (not red pro) They are also usually only $140 for 8tb vs well over $200 for a standalone WD 8tb Red drive.

So, yeah, its worth it even for 1 drive and especially for a pool. Oh and don't forget the extra parity drives and at least 1 offsite backup.

Problem is(as I recently read)) they're splitting up even more.

Instead of licensing everything to Netflix expect the following to be in their own...

NBC WANTS THE OFFICE BAVK, SOON. IT REGULARLY IS TRENDING ON NETFLIX. new content losing to a show from 9 years ago.

HBO will continue to go it alone.

DISNEY will have a service.

I believe AMC is doing the same.
CBS all access for STAR trek and ABC for HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER.

There's a few others I forget, but I remembered thinking oh good the age of streaming is now going to be the age of a million costly services.

Push me away!
I will keep netflix and be loyal. Other than that I will torrent everything I want.

Nothing makes sense.
SyFy canceled the best new space show by far. Thankfully it was saved by AMAZON? OR HULU?

I forget.
I'll be tormenting it anyway.
If I had the ability to help pay for individual shows I'd do that. Tho dont know how it would work. I hate that a show can't seem to be on multiple networks unless it's really old.

This has been happening for a while now. What media companies fail to realize is that it isn't about how much something costs, it's the ease of access that's the real determination.

Tons of people enjoy the weekly episode release model because it encourages and supports discussion. But when you charge for it, you just push the pirates to attain episodes with the least effort required.

I'm getting more and more behind the opinion that streaming services should be defined as public utilities. Or at least force them out of their current model of trying to get new customers.
The whole "exclusive" aspect should be completely prohibited.
While not much can be done about original programming deals with third party studios that limit content to a particular service certainly fall under the anti-trust category.

I agree but this isn't limited to just the television and film industry. It's also has been going on in video games for a long time but most of that has been first party games but more recently, you've got Epic Game Store making deals with having 3rd party exclusives on EGS instead of Steam due to its 88/12 split with developers instead of Steam's 70/30 to a huge backlash.

If you look at all the recent multi-million dollar syndication deals on streaming services like The Office going to Peacock, Friends and The Big Bang Theory going to HBO Max, Seinfeld going to Netflix, etc. Streaming services, like EGS, are throwing money just to get shows whether they're old or recent because they know people will sign up just to watch reruns of those shows. Sure there's exclusive original shows and movies people but it's building their respective libraries of old shows and movies that really counts.

Yes that's more or less the same thing.
I even think that these practices are already prohibited but just not enforced because neither the consumer nor creator side has the funds to sue the platforms.

>Streaming services, like EGS, are throwing money just to get shows whether they're old or recent because they know people will sign up just to watch reruns of those shows.
That's just the thing alot of people aren't.
If it's not on Netflix and I can't buy it on Amazon in 4k the path of least effort are torrents.

What I don't get is why there isn't a "flatrate" service for TV & Movies yet.
It could work the same way youtube premium works.
Consumers pay a monthly subscription fee, perhaps based on the quality (like SD, HD, UHD) and can watch every content out there.
And after the cut for the platform each subscription fee is then distributed among the content that was watched each month.

Right, and these streaming services think that having big libraries of old shows will increase subs when they really don't. Sure The Office is one of Netflix's most watched shows but will people flock in droves to Peacock just to watch it?

My personal "ethics" behind torrenting stuff instead of paying for it pretty much draws the line somewhere around here. For practical purposes this also means if I have to get up and walk to the PC I'm not paying for it.

I'm not gonna subscribe to another service just because they have this one really good show.

For every month you waste money on pointless streaming services you could be adding another HDD to your server pool and filling it with content you actually want, that never goes away, and is always available. Add on something like sonarr and radarr and you can have your favorite series downloaded, renamed, sorted and added to emby/kodi/plex a minute or two after they air automatically and streaming to an unlimited number of devices.

It's a lot of streaming but between that bundle and Netflix's standard plan, it's $26 a month. The rest of them I get for free since I have a one year free trial of Apple TV+ and HBO, Showtime, and Peacock I receive through my roommate's Cox cable subscription. My apartment bundles Cox cable and internet for $100 a month with HBO and Showtime being included at no additional charge and on top of that, HBO Max and Peacock's Premium with ads plan are free to Cox subscribers. I had canceled my Amazon Prime free trial before it charged but I'll probably re-up again by next week to watch The Boys season 2.

My roommate pays for it, not me, though a $100 flat fee for cable (plus HBO and Showtime included) and internet is a bargain. Also most of these like Apple TV+ and Peacock aren't worth paying for so I'm glad to get them for free at least. Using different streaming services is subjective considering the differences in content for each one and they all have their pros and cons. Personally, I like Hulu because they have FX and they have some good original movies and shows like Palm Springs and Ramy.

Not sure if it counts as a subscription service, but I've been enjoying chucking on the free Plex TV channels on in the background. Either the hip-hop music video channel while at work, or sometimes the Aliens or Nature channels when going to bed.

There's also a 24/7 kung-fu movie channel which looks like it'd be cool, and a Maury/Jerry Springer channel.

Whitman and Katzenberg underestimated the streaming market becoming much more competitive now than ever especially with HBO Max and Peacock also coming out this year and the demand for short-form content on only mobile devices. This quote from the article is a good explanation:

>“Quibi was based on a sound premise,” Leichtman said. But its “challenge in building an active subscriber base goes well beyond the fact that it was designed specifically for mobile phone viewing at a time when people were spending much more time at home. It is also a reminder that regardless of experienced leadership and strong financial backing, no streaming video business model is a gimme, particularly one that includes consumers paying to subscribe where there is a plethora of free alternatives.”

This whole same day release in theaters and on HBO Max plan by WarnerMedia could really be a game changer if it goes forward but it could also have a chilling effect on film releases on streaming services and theaters.

I canceled Netflix and subbed to HBOMAX. I'm glad I did, has a lot of good movies and TV shows that aren't on my free Hulu sub. None of the new stuff on Netflix is any good and what was good like Dark Crystal, Locke and Keye, Altered Carbon and The Order has no news of having a continuation or have been outright canceled. It's obvious netflix is catering to young queers so I'm out.

The Wrap reports that the new version will launch in June and while there is no revealed price point yet, it will cost significantly less than the current version’s $14.99 a month.

>The site notes that the new version will include ads, but not as part of their HBO original series content. WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar said during the AT&T investor presentation where the new version was confirmed, “We will not be having advertising inside of the HBO original series. The main difference is going to be the theatrical premieres. They will be in the current version of HBO Max, they will not be in the advertising-supported version of HBO Max. So those will be, by that point in time, about seven movies.”

>The launch is a move to increase HBO Max’s subscriber base, giving a price point for fans who may be put off by the larger cost compared to the $7 per month Disney+ cost, $8.99 and up for Netflix, $5.99 and up for Hulu, and so on. The company estimates that by 2025, they will have between 120 million and 150 million subscribers worldwide (HBO and HBO Max combined), with its 2020 end subscriber level at 61 million.

So basically a cheaper version with ads for non-HBO content and without the same day theatrical releases. That's not bad.

It would be one thing if they were before and/or after the show but during is a bridge too far.

I highly doubt this. Are they assuming this number just in the U.S? Because if they think they can compete with Netflix on that scale, because s those numbers is what netflix has worldwide is fucking delusional on HBO's projection, and with a market Netflix that tends to cater to that country's region on what shows are shown, its going to be nearly impossible for them to even scratch the surface.

I mean you get HBO without having to pay extra for it, Cartoon Network, DC Universe, and other Warner Bros stuff. I think it's worth it.

Cartoon Network and DC animation is the reason I stayed.

Figure out what shows you want to watch on each platform, make a list. Figure out which platform has the shows you most want to see. Decide if you want to see those shows badly enough in high definition, and with ease of legal streaming, that you'll play whatever that platform is asking for. Then only pay for one platform at a time, and get through the things on your list.

At least that's how I'd do it in theory. I'm on my one month free Hulu, and I'll probably go ahead and pay for next month because there's enough I want to see. I have free access to Amazon and Netflix because of relatives' accounts, but it's been a long time since I've watched anything on either one. There's some interesting stuff on HBO and Disney, but I don't think it's anything I want badly enough to pay for; if there is something I might just torrent it.

Hulu commercials are so bad. It's all LGBTQ, woke activism, and depression medication.

One good thing about pandemic. Motherfuckers finally realized how good Dredd was, more people must've pulled the trigger on it due to streaming services. I'm so thankful they moved forward with Megacity One. Karl Urban played a great Dredd.

This post got me excited because it sounded like you were talking about a new Dredd movie. But there isn't, fuck you.

Then you probably have the plan with no ads, which is $11.99 a month, or you're using some sort of adblocker for the with ads plan, which is $5.99 a month. I got the plan with ads since it's included in the Disney+ bundle.

yeah.. Paramount Plus, D+
Netflix, Hulu, Amazon,
ESPN Plus , HBO Max

this all replaces Cable, yet now it's fees per company and cuts out the middleman cable companies. We as consumers have to decide whether this makes any real change, and if we truly disagree with television programming enough to make this normal or worth the sacrifice.
