Re: What subscription streaming services do you have?

Netflix
Amazon (through Prime)
VUDU (Not subscription but I have 500+ movies through them)

Charter Spectrum TV: I have been resisting Charter's calls to go from just their internet and streaming to going back to cable boxes. Long story...July 2014 they wanted to up my bill from $140 to $190...I said no way and dropped their TV service, just keeping their internet for $60/mo.

They called me 2 days ago with their new service..Spectrum TV:

All local channels: CBS, NBC, ABC and 25 or so more national channels (History, ESPN, etc.)
Free ROKU 3: I can keep it when/if I cancel.
HBO or Showtime: I chose HBO
$19.99 per month, permanent price.

I took it...we'll see how it is...HBO alone is like $10-$15 a month and I've never had that...so it will be nice. My bill will go from $60/mo (just internet) to $80. Should be worth it.

Sounds like a smoking good deal. Provided of course "permanent price" means the same to them as it does to us.

Re: What subscription streaming services do you have?

Currently have Netflix, Hulu (commercial free), Prime and WWE Network until Wrestlemania. I have tried Sling and think it is a good concept but the streaming wasn't very good, maybe I'll give it another chance in a few months. Charter gave me the same deal which included the Roku 3. I tried it for a month but cancelled. I don't really have a need for local channels since I have an antenna but they were charging an additional $6 or so as an added broadcast fee plus other misc. taxes and fees. It seems like cable always does that and I just don't want to deal with it anymore.

I pay for Netflix and Hulu (no ads). Amazon Prime is a bonus since I only care about shipping and occasional deals; hardly ever use the service. I leech of my parents HBO Go, Showtime Anytime and Starz. Gf pays for Spotify.

I was thinking that very same thing when I saw that 'deal' for $20 for a base package to incl HBO. Cable 'offers' are NEVER what they claim. DirecTV keeps sending me come-ons for their $20 package. But then it's, oh you want to watch this in HD? that's another $10. You want a DVR? Silly you, that's another $10. And we have fees, oh yes we have fees. And pretty soon that $20 package is almost $60 with no premiums.

This is why I do not have cable/satellite but subscribe to all these streaming packages. At least there is one price that's stated clearly up front & you don't get trapped into a 2 year contract with deceptive tactics.

Exactly. I looked at getting a Comcast package at $89.95 a month---with all the fees and extra charges, it would have been $139. I signed up for Sling TV streaming for $19.99 a month, and that's what they charge.
