So true, right?i have a love hate relationship with streaming but the increase still seems worth it. I will say that it seems like we have come full circle when it comes to pricing for streaming in general. For me to watch everything I want to watch we basically pay the same price as cable. The only difference is there are some things I can’t watch on cable
And it seems like Paramount is going to start ditching some of their shows and cable and show them exclusively through their service. When we moved we decided to try streaming and it sucked without the live TV packages which are basically the same cost as cable. It’s fine now but it’s annoying trying to scroll through 4 different apps in order to find something to watchSo true, right?
Experts said this going in. That while everybody thinks they want a la carte, the minute you see the costs its going to get pricey. ESPN has always been the most expensive and will continue to be by a large margin. But now mainstream antenna networks, that have always been free, are charging for their apps such as Paramount, Peacock, etc.
I would probably drop netflix at that point. This bundle gives us a ton of valueI would venture a guess that we do see a hike there at some point in the near future. While Disney doesnt have to pay a ton of rights deals like ESPN for TV, the subscriber growth is undeniable and at some point it will hit $20 for the package.
I was thinking the same thing when I saw the conversation pop up. Hopefully it stays free as part of our Verizon plan.I get the Disney bundle for free through my Verizon subscription, wonder if that will be changing and they start to charge a little for it each month
