    I currently subscribe to more than I ever thought I would:

    Netflix: $9.99
    Hulu (with Showtime add-on): $16.98
    Britbox: $6.99
    Shudder: $4.99

    Total/month: $38.95

    Getting up there, almost as much as paying for basic cable at this point (but far more bang for the buck, imo) . Also thinking of getting the Night Flight app for another $2.99. Am I about average with everybody else, or is everyone still sticking to Netflix or Amazon at this point?

    The only I pay for are regular Hulu (5.99) and Amazon Prime ($8.30 a month). I think Prime is actually pretty underrated, sure, Netflix gets more higher profile releases, but Prime has a lot of great older horror titles which Netflix is really lacking. They've got a ton of Arrow stuff, so that's cool because I can check out their movies I'm not familiar with before buying. Here's a list of the stuff Film Rise has on there, which includes at least a couple dozen Arrow titles:

    I share my Hulu with my roommates, so I also get to use their Netflix account without paying for it. I had Shudder for a month, but I'd seen most of what I'd want to see so I canceled. They're getting Found Footage 3D, so I'll sign back up to check that out.

    One free service I love and recommend is Pluto TV. They have MST3K and Rifftrax channels - I'm watching the Rifftrax of The Last Slumber Party right now. There are commercials, but still great to have.

    Netflix, Hulu Live, and OTA.

    Tried Sling for the 1 week preview. Wasn't terrible, but still had the same problem cable and satellite have always had by forcing you into packages for Live TV. You pick one package, you get X amount of channels. You pick other package, you get more, but lose some. Ended up going Hulu Live, but honestly not feeling that is worth it either due to my personal viewing taste of watching movies on Blu or whatever.

    I do watch a bit of Comet TV via OTA. Caught the two Blacula films recently on that.

    Netflix, Shudder, Amazon Prime, Hulu. I have a 50 mile over the air antenna for local HD channels, and Kodi to top it off. I cut the cord 2 years ago and don't miss it at all.

    We got it all. Amazon prime, Netflix, Hulu, HBO, Showtime.......all via a Roku. I also subscribe to MLB.TV (which I used the most, to watch the Redsox daily, as well as other baseball games). My wife uses the others.

    Netflix is really good for some things I need in my life like Trailer Park Boys. But I think Hulu has better older shows I watch like South Park and Chappelle Show.

    There are also a handful of horror channels I have on the Roku like HorrorHall, Horror Habit, etc.......free and have a TON of older titles. BUT.....the only drawback is the fact they have commercials every 15 mins or so. And they're normally the same exact fucking commercial over and over again. Annoying is an understatement.

    Netflix and Amazon Prime(which I rarely use) by Roku and all the major cable premium channels HBO, SHO, Starz, Cinemax, etc..(and their OnDemand services that come with premium) which I use only on cable not by app.

    Amazon and Shudder for me. Both feed my horror fix exceptionally well.

    Anyone having trouble streaming EXPLOITATION.TV on their home computers? So far I've tried Firefox, Explorer and Silverlight. I keep getting a "NOT TRUSTED" type of message with only a button to close the entire page as an option.
    I can access the page at work but for some reason at home...not happening.
    Do you think my Norton security is too strict?

    No problem here, but from the sounds of it - especially the "not trusted" error - your security programs/settings or firewall are likely blocking the website. So I'd look in to see if you can add the website to a list or option of trusted/accessible sites on your security settings.
