Devices haven't changed but I've been reducing the paid services. There are many free (w/ads) options nowadays.

Current paid services:
Hulu (w/ads)
Netflix
Prime
HBO Max

I'm still on Hulu (No Ads), Spotify (Family), Netflix (UHD), HBO Max (Free w/ AT&T Fiber), Apple TV+, Prime, YouTube TV, and a cheap 6 month subscription to Epix that is on the chopping block.

I had Peacock for a little while but axed it last month. Obviously Spotify and YTTV are my most used -- followed by Apple TV+ and Hulu.

Weirdly I may ditch Netflix once password sharing is gone, I mostly keep it because I know other people are using it

Netflix
HBO Max (free with AT&T... for now)
Amazon Prime (primarily for the shipping)
Disney + (3 year discount)
Paramount + (Sportsline deal)
Peacock "premium" with ads (free with cable)
Funimation (but moving to Crunchyroll)
Retrocrush (1 year discount)
HiDive (1 year discount)
Hulu with ads (1 year black friday discount)

If not free, I'd probably pay full price for (but rotate) only Netflix, Disney +, HBO Max, and Prime and then rotate through Crunchyroll and HiDive and Retrocrush for anime. My intention was to cut off Netflix for a few months when we got Disney + but the kids shut that line of thinking down quickly. If it was just me I think I'd be fine rotating through services and binging every few months, so it's not too big of a deal for me, and much better than cable where the on demand component is (or at least was) an afterthought.

Disney+ (Still on the original 3 year deal that was extended 1 yr by Verizon)
Amazon Video (Prime shipping bonus)
Peacock Premium - yr plan
Apple TV+ - yr plan
Paramount+/Showtime bundle ($9.99 thru Apple TV)
HBOMax (another 5 months on the $7.49/mo deal ~ likely to cancel after)
YouTube Premium (3 months free over holidays that I keep forgetting to cancel... addictive with no ads!)
YouTube TV
Starz (about 4 months left on 6 month deal ~ likely to cancel after)
AMC+ (free yr with Verizon ~ never watch ~ will cancel when year is up)

Everything runs thru my Apple TV boxes

I was paying for the no-ads tier of Peacock, but I dropped it this month when I realized that I hadn't watched anything on that service since Halloween Kills. I picked up the ad-free version of Shout Factory TV in its place. I tried to watch something on the free version of Shout Factory TV a couple of weeks ago, and when commercial "1 of 13" popped up, I realized that I was going to have to get rid of the ads if I was going to keep watching the channel.

I will include services I get for "free" by being a subscriber with T-Mobile/Sprint, or an existing Xfinity customer.

Netflix - Out of pocket
HBO Max - Free thanks to Xfinity
Peacock w/lmtd ads - Free thanks to Xfinity
Apple TV+ - 3 months free Xfinity promo, over 2 months left, might go out of pocket for another month or two
Disney+ - Out of pocket
Hulu w/lmtd ads - Always free for Sprint customers grandfathered in when T-Mobile bought out Sprint
Paramount+ wlmtd ads - Free thanks to Xfinity

I guess if I was spending less for my Xfinity services I would probably be willing to pay out of pocket for at least a couple of the services I currently get for free (maybe HBO Max and Peacock, but oddly enough I probably could live w/o Hulu if I had to pay). Overall, I do not spend a ton of streaming services, but looking at my take home pay, it is a good thing so many of the services I watch on a regular basis are "free" for me, lol.

ETA: I see that Djariya listed a bunch of channels that I get included with my top tier triple play package with Xfinity, channels that have their own a la carte services for those that are not spending a lot on a bundled cable package like myself, so I did not include streamers like Showtime, or Epix. I know that I do not get Starz, but for the most part I can live without that service.

At the moment just:

YouTube TV
Netflix
Amazon Prime
Peacock (though will go to free version in a week ... upgraded just for Wrestlemania weekend)

I sponge off a family member's account for Disney+ and HBO Max. Hoping they don't go the Netflix route and change extra for shared accounts. If that happened I see myself cycling through Netflix and those two so I'm only paying for one in a given month.

Re: How many streaming services do you have?

Well, you can now take CNN Plus off my list. They pulled the plug yesterday. The app was updated and all their content is now gone.

I cancelled Hi-Yah yesterday. I like the idea of a HK action movies streaming service and even though it's super cheap at $3 per month, I have to cut back on the ones I don't watch regularly enough. I didn't watch it enough to keep it as a revolving expense. Maybe when they add more movies later, I might re-consider.

Why not cut Sundance too if you have AMC+? Or is it something you pre-paid for through another deal?

It's pre-paid until August through a promo they offered me. I plan to cut it as well when it expires.
