Cutting the cable cord is gaining in popularity daily and there’s plenty of devices that allow for getting our media fix, at home and on the go. But after spending $9.99 for a music service, $7.99 for Netflix and/or Hulu Plus – not to mention individual movie, music, and TV show purchases your bills start to add up fast. There are other services like Audible, Steam, digital magazines, and newspapers too.
The costs add up in a hurry and in the end you might end up spending more than you do before cutting the cord. So the question this week is how many subscriptions do you have? Are there some you started on a free trial and ended up forgetting about? Is it time to take inventory and cancel some of the subscriptions you have that you don’t use?
Here’s where my digital media subscriptions stand:
- MOG – but cancelling it at the end of the month as I am moving to Xbox Music.
- Netflix – I tried Hulu Plus for a while, but it doesn’t have what I’m interested in, and while limited, there’s still commercials to deal with.
- Amazon Instant Video via Amazon Prime – while there seems to be better HD quality streaming on Amazon, there’s more choice on Netflix in my opinion.
- Xbox Live Gold – which is necessary to do anything cool on the console.
