There is a LOT of good Tv out there. A very competitive market. I have a year of AppleTv as I just bought a new iPhone. I like to binge watch, so I'm in no hurry to watch the other shows to see if I like them. Plenty of time to watch later. I'm binge watching the 2nd season of Jack Ryan on Amazon Prime Video. It's a good show.

I still pay for cable...so I'm not loading up on multiple streaming platforms. Netflix is pretty safe in my household as I have three daughters that watch it. Prime Video I get "for free" as I pay for prime for the shipping. I have Hulu due to a deal with Sprint. Never watch it.

I'm not a fan of the trend against binge watching. I will wait until the seasons are over and then sign up for a month and binge the show I want to watch. I'm sure people like me are WHY the new services aren't releasing all the episodes at once.

But I'm still going forward with my "sign up and binge, then cancel" approach to all of these new services.

I like the Star Trek on CBS All Access and am looking forward to Picard in January. The Star Wars show on Disney looks to be good. Netflix and Amazon Prime each have a handful of shows I like.

Going to have to start tracking these in a OneNote note like I do with books I want to read.
I cancelled my cable back in September because they didn't carry the channel my favorite college team is on. I went to Playstation Vue, but Sony is pulling the plug on Playstation Vue, so now I'm using Hulu which works fine.

I got Apple TV+ with my iPad Pro, I get a year of Disney free because I have a Verizon unlimited data plan and I get CBS that I get free because I subscribe to a sports bulletin board (same favorite college team) owned by CBS, plus I have Prime Video as part of Prime so I will have a ton of content for the next year. We will see what I decide to keep or not when I actually have to pay for it.
