Me too, but I'd mainly get it for the Marvel movies.


7€ per month is quite cheap, too! But I'll guess I won't be getting the year sub, because if I wanna see a Disney movie, I can get one month and get away much cheaper than a night at the cinema.

I'd recommend it, it's brilliant. I'm just salty about the staged regional roll-out

The issue I see is not that 7euro is a cheap price (which it is), everything is a streaming service now, so if you start subscribing to multiple then it adds up to quite a large cost.

Currently I have
Spotify
XGP
Netflix
HBO
That is setting me back £45 a month. For streaming services alone. Could be considered more given I paid an annual fee for Origin.

Now adding 7 euro although small, is pushing me over £50. Its too much.

All I will say, as a USA resident, is streaming services are by far cheaper then cable ever will be. No matter what the cable companies will offer I won't ever use it.


Also if you are paying for all those services yourself then you should consider splitting the cost with some friends . I should be paying like $100+ a month for the streaming services alone I use but the 3 people I have added to my accounts pay me X amount per month for the use of said services - I actually only pay about $35 a month for all the services.

Include my (stupidly high compared to anywhere else) internet costs and I am only paying $105 a month total for internet + streaming services.


The other argument for streaming is that it is just better. I can watch what I want, when I want, however I want to watch it. Heck I can pause and walk away for a minute, good luck doing that with most cable companies anywhere in the world.



EDIT - anyone who would use the argument of "Oh well you have to pay for internet too so it is basically the same price!" is a fool. Everyone almost has internet in todays world, you can't use something that almost everyone has as a basis for an argument over the failure that cable is becoming vs streaming lol.



I've got maybe 2-3 hours maximum, often less, each day to watch stuff to relax when I get home and done with other things - streaming services are much better for that simply for the sake of "watching what I want, when I want" cable can't compete with that at all.

I feel you. While I only have Amazon Prime at the moment, which is 70€ for a year (same prize as Disney+) I already think that is much. Luckily my grad cousin allows me to use his Netflix sub for free.





@Darkdayzzz so you're paying 70$ for your internet connection?! That's 63€, holy moly. I hope you're getting high speeds at least.


Concerning pausing the movie/show with cable: almost every newer TV is able to record to a USB drive, allowing you to stop even free TV movies and continue after you return. You can also skip commercial breaks of recorded stuff, of course.
