How much do you spend on streaming services?

So, how much do you spend each month for streaming services?

I currently spend $36.72.

Netflix - $7.99
WWE Network - $9.99
Crunchyroll - $8.33 ($99.95/year)
Funimation - $4.58 ($54.95/year)
Full Moon Streaming - $5.83 ($35/6-mos)

That's not counting Amazon Prime which runs $8.25/month, because my primary reason for subscribing is the free shipping. But that would bring my monthly total up to $44.97.

I also buy a couple movies at Vudu/iTunes each month. If you count that it would easily be over $100.

Netflix $7.99/mo + Amazon Prime $99 a year but I don't use Amazon for streaming, I use it just for the shipping. Pea protein, protein bars, gels, supplements, I buy A LOT from them just in consumables. And I buy A LOT of orders that are $20 or less.

I have Prime but don't really count it because I rarely use it (seriously Amazon, update your lousy non-Fire interfaces)

Netflix: ~ $8.64
Hulu: ~$7.99
Spotify: $4.99 (Student Discount)
Amazon Student Prime: $49.99/annual ($4.17/mo)

So about $25.17 a month.

Re: How much do you spend on streaming services?

I have the following:
Netflix - $7.99
Hulu Plus - $7.99
VPN Service - $4.99 per month

I used to have the WWE network but I just don't watch it enough to justify the subscription.

The VPN is absolutely necessary for me in order to stream Hulu Plus here in Canada. Also with the VPN, I'm able to stream Netflix for the following countries besides Canada: US, UK, Mexico, Ireland, Sweden, Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Brazil, Argentina and Colombia. That gives me enough movies and TV shows to keep me occupied. I find Netflix Sweden to be really good. It might be better than the US in regards to streaming newer movies.

Re: How much do you spend on streaming services?

Per month

Netflix= $7.99
Hulu Plus= $7.99
Amazon Prime= $85.32 (2013 to 2014) = Will probably renew for the $99 + tax fee for 2014 to 2015

I had Full Moon streaming for roughly 4 months, but decided not to continue since I wasn't watching it enough to make it worth it.

Occasionally I'll purchase some a la carte titles from Amazon, Target Ticket or XBox video.

This is all supplemental. I mainly watch stuff with my Directv subscription.

I'm confused. Are you paying the monthly costs for all those Netflix foreign services in addition to Canada? That's a lot of money if you do. Wouldn't you have to sign up for separate accounts for each one? How does the VPN enable you to have access to all those if you're only paying 1 subscription fee? Isn't each one their own separate entity?

No. One subscription fee. As long as you have one Netflix account (like the Canadian that I have), using a VPN service, I can browse through all of the other countries content.

Yeah, one Netflix account works anywhere in the world, it's why Hola is/was popular.

Re: How much do you spend on streaming services?

WWE $9.99
Netflix $7.99
Warner Archive $6.37 (bought a year with 10% off comicon coupon)

I had two months of Hulu Plus free with my Roku and will probably continue it for a bit with the new TV season starting. I ended up watching the entire Ellery Queen TV show the past couple of weeks so that saved me about $35 buying the DVD set.

If I add Hulu Plus I will be around $32.34.

Warner Archive continues to be a huge disappointment. Its hard to find enough content a month worth watching to justify the cost. I will definitely drop that one again once the year is up.

Netflix and WWE are the big winners for me. Worth way more than their monthly cost.

I enjoy racing, so I have MotorSportWorld.TV for 4.99/month
Netflix: 7.99
NHL Gamecenter 19.99
Normally WWE Network, but had to let it lapse this month due to unexpected bills.
Hulu Plus this month due to the Criterion Challenge, but getting a free month when the gift card is processed.

$7.99 for Netflix
$7.99 for Hulu

That's it. I do have Amazon Prime ($99), but I never use their streaming, so I guess add another $8.25 per month if you want.

You are using the VPN to hide (shift) your location, right? I'm looking to stream hockey games but they are blacked out locally, so I was thinking about doing this. Do you have a service you would recommend?

Right now just Netflix ($7.99 / month), though I have considered Spanish programming, TV Mia, at $20 / month.

Netflix @ $8/month.

I don't even have time for that, so I don't see it changing any time soon.

I would feel ripped off even if it was free.

With Netflix, Hulu+, and Amazon Prime (student), we're a little over $20/month. However, we didn't get Prime for the streaming, and only use it for a couple of shows our toddler likes (maybe 2-3 hours a month).

$8 for Netflix.

I have access to Amazon Prime because my fiance has been a subscriber for a few years now.

Re: How much do you spend on streaming services?

I also use Amazon Instant Video - when I buy TV shows I but it through Amazon.

Walking Dead, Homeland, Orphan Black, etc. I only buy two or three TV seasons per year, and in SD (looks fine on my 46" TV).
