Well, I suppose if an incredible choice of programming is available from all these streaming services, it would be ridiculous to subscribe to them all at the same time as you'd never get around to watching everything!
At least you won't be locked in to any service for a year. You can chop and change. Simples. Cheaper.

That’s a big “if” in your first sentence.

Will just have to hope these streaming services release their big series in line with your rota and don’t go down the “one episode a week” route.

Here’s what they’re offering me via my iPad right now if I visit their website while not signed in, and also the prices I’m offered to upgrade or downgrade after I sign in.

In the past when Netflix have increased prices they have given existing customers the old rate for a period of time. That might explain this difference between logged in price and new customer price.

Having said that, they normally accompany it with a press release or e-mail to customers. As far as I know they haven't done this.

There certainly has been no email notification from them coming through to us.

You don't have to be locked in for a year to linear channel packages either, so streaming is no different.

Why there are so many different prices for Netflix is beyond me

Maybe so, but linear packages are crap imo.

Really? That's not what I am hearing on the street.

What it is you prefer about scheduled linear channels, flooded with commercials, that gives you no control, I really don't understand.

I accept that nothing will change this enslavement between you and linear which has caused this Stockholm syndrome, but hopefully you will start to see the light when the linear channels are finally killed off.

It will happen, but in the meantime, enjoy the mediocraty.

Double crap, even. I would not watch TV if that's how I was forced to watch.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

What are these linear packages that are crap? MUTV or some other standalone channel?

The services from Sky, Virgin Media and BT include streaming and mobile options. Thousands of hours of on demand content is available from a range of content partners.

If you watch only sport, that I can understand. But, if you are talking about dramas, I don't see where you are coming from. Lately, the BBC and ITV dramas have improved, but there are not many of them at any one time.
