Subscription Services, Yay or Nay? (EZ Discussion)

Post by graciettie » 10 Sep 2020, 00:58

You’ve all heard of Netflix, Hulu, Disney+ etc. I want to know your thoughts and feelings on these subscriptions services and whether you think they’re worth the money or not.

I personally use Netflix and Amazon Prime on the off chance but I seem to be getting bored of Netflix lately. I know lockdown hasn’t helped, but I feel like I’ve watched everything that Netflix has to offer... anime, comedy, sucky horrors, kids programs, you name it. I wish they would add new stuff more than they are. Now, I know it’s hard with licensing and swapping in movies for new ones, but everything seems to be the same, especially Netflix’s own shows. The only one I’ve ever enjoyed of that is Stranger Things and I honestly can’t wait for the new season!

A lot of my friends have been watching the live action Mulan lately, but is it really worth it, spending £30 on a film that you can only watch when you’re paying for Disney+? Having to spend £50+ every year just to keep a movie you’ve bought previously sounds like a scam 😂

So, what are you thoughts? Do you like using them? Do you think they should be updated more? What about the fiasco with Mulan on Disney+? Let me know your thoughts!

Why sub when you can sail the seven seas, if you catch my drift?

Whatever the cost / It will not be redeemed
And whatever may come / It will not bring, relief
In the mirror
They may fail to see / What is real behind / Them it ends 
And there is no return / They will go down
They all will have to drown

i prefer subbing to one or two services for $15 - 30 as opposed to buying a massive cable package (with ads) for $50

I think they are a good idea unless they flood their programing schedule with sub-standard shows. Ive found that if a show is popular it will spawn a series of saturated clones just to try and money grab that feeling or enjoyment from the original. I do they think are over priced though. I woulnt pay for more than one or two services at a time....(Netflix and PSplus for me)
