Maybe they’ll all pull together and team up with a broadcasting service. I think cable would be a good nomenclature for their unified business.

Fun fact. In Canada you can combine all of those services and it would still be cheaper than what I pay for cable.

Previously – pay for one high cable bill and pay for all of the content you don’t have time to watch.

Now, pay a fraction for only the content you want to watch, and when you don’t want to watch any more of that content, stop paying for it and pay for the content you do want to watch.

What’s the problem?

Why would someone hate having choice? Yeah let’s combine them into two location based monopolies that are $100 a month, great idea.

We had the “worked out” version. They decided they wanted a bigger cut.

I don’t think they’re ever going to undecide that and I have no faith in the American entertainment consumer to not just shell out like chumps.

You can pay for Disney and Hulu together. And if you have Hulu, you shouldn’t need ABC, CBS or NBC.

US pre-2020: I wish we can a-la-cart the channels we want! Fuck cable companies!

US post-2020: Apple, Hulu, Netflix, CBS, Amazon, work y’all shit up! We can’t afford all of you!

Truthfully if they try to pull this shit where they make 10 different services and split the content up and effectively just make cable TV but on the internet, I’m just going to cancel them all and renew my VPN subscription. ARR!

You’ll pay for the ones you want and will use which is actually better than the old cable model which we are kindaaaaa reverting back to

It’s a good thing they’re separate though, it creates more competition between them and is better for the customer in the long run

Still cheaper than cable. And you can choose what you want and when to watch it.

I have decided I will pay for 3. Disney+ looks good, so Netflix is about to go.

The guy isn’t wrong though, most people started streaming because cable turned into a car payment for a bunch of dumb shit you didn’t want to watch. I’ll probably be more likely to pick two at a time and swap them out.

Well at the rate Disney is going, they will buy up everything else s so that will be the only one we have to pay for.

I’ve started trading logins with friends.

I have Netflix, HBO, Prime and cable. I trade one of my friends the Netflix login for Hulu, and I’m going to trade my cable login for Disney+.

Eventually they’ll find a way to shut this down, but it’s an imperfect system until then!

My mom pays for Netflix. One sister pays for Hulu. Another sister pays for amazon prime. I just signed up for Disney+. Team work makes the dream work.

Shit, right? I’m not willing to pay for two of them, not if I have to pay for music streaming too. I’ll bounce to whichever one has the most of what I want to watch, but beyond that it’s back to pirating for me.

I think we all know where this is going. Internet-cable.

We won for 5-10 years, then they all caught on.

Thanks and sorry Netflix.

Maybe all of these services should bundle together under some sort of aggregate, then we could watch all these networks under a stream-lined price. We could call the new service Content Aggregate Bundles with Localized Exclusivity, or C.A.B.L.E. for short.

Maybe then also reach out to geographically monopolized monolithic communication companies to bundle these new content packages with phone lines and internet services, using relatable sports lingo such as “Triple Play Bundle” or the “Pro MVP Package”.

Then of course, since these companies are doing so much behind the scenes, you’ll need to pay only a little bit extra in service fees and taxes like the Federal Universal Service Fund, Regional Sports Fees, Regulatory Cost Recovery fees, equipment rental fees, State Universal Service Fund, a 911 service fee (for emergency calls), an athletic fee (New Mexico only), convenience fees, Federal Excise Tax, and State and local taxes.

Can’t wait.

This is the one thing everyone agreed on before we had the internet.

“Wouldn’t it just be better if I only had to pay for the channels I wanted?”

“Why can’t my cable just be a la carte, I don’t watch half these channels”

Now we’re getting that… I think the problem is we were spoiled by early Hulu/Netflix where we could watch everything for $7.99/mo. It wasn’t gonna stay that way once the networks figured out what year it was.

The culture of big corporations tends to quash negativity. Pointing out that the streaming market is saturated, that our content isn’t that great that people are going to pay $10 a month to access it when there’s so many other streaming services available, that’s pretty negative. Any executive who tried to stand in the way of opening their own streaming service would be sidelined pretty fast.

There was talk NBC’s might be free, so we got that going for us. Currently paying for Netflix, Hulu, and Prime. I have other ways of watching stuff from other streaming services.

“Competition is healthy and good and monopolies are terrible and should be broken up” – Redditors, at least until streaming became popular enough for other companies to invest in.

They won’t be able to leech of their girlfriends parents Netflix subscriptions with all the newcomers.

Their definition of cable cutters: “they don’t like to pay 100+ bucks a month for tv on one bill, lets break up their channels into 10 services for $9.99/ month! That’s exactly what they are looking for!”

Executives: promote this employee!
