I was curious. With the Uplay Plus subscription reveal, I wonder what kind of subscriptions GAFers have going and why. From sports to video games to steaming tv serves and internet services (like YouTube, twitch, humble monthly), there is a LOT to choose from.

The subs war will eventually implode and it will be fun to look back on this era and see what and why people subscribed to what they did.

Anyway, I’m currently subscribed to:

  • YouTube Premium: Why? Because of ad-free videos, the biggest music/song database in the world, and Cobra Kai. Chances of cancelling: 10%
  • Netflix: Because it was my first sub. Also, lots of movies and a few NF original shows and movies. But, not as attractive as it used to be. Chances of cancelling 60%
  • PS+: For the free games of which about every other month they’ve released a game I’ve liked. And online gaming. Chances of cancelling: 100%. Only because the PS5 will be out soon and it’s inevitable that I will stop this service.
  • Game Pass (PC): Because of a bunch of awesome games. Chances of cancelling: 50% I have a massive backlog to play through. After that, we’ll see what they release.
  • Nintendo on-line: Intended to use it to play Smash Bros online but I’ve barley touched the game and the bonus NES games aren’t enough. Chances of cancelling: 100%
  • Amazon Prime: I live in a small town with only one Wal-Mart. prime has been my lord and savior of all things retail. Chances of cancelling: 0%
I’ve also subscribed to Hulu, Apple Music, and Amazon Music in the past.

My brother has gamepass and XBLG and I leech off of him.

I don't even have a phone subscription. PAYG baby

EDIT: can you baller millionaires with loads of subs give everyone a grand total of much you are paying per month for all that shit?

Spotify Premium
I use it pretty much every day

Netflix
Barely watched anything on there in the last 6 months or so. I keep it because I pay less than half the price for a 4K subscription as normal.

UFC Fight Pass
Great value for every MMA fan.
I use it to watch every UFC live event available. They also got the entire PRIDE FC library which is amazing ❤

PS+
Don’t use it besides checking out a few ps+ games that you get for free. I forgot to cancel and it auto renewed for a year :(

Amazon Prime Video
Gets very little use. I only have it because it’s included with prime.


Besides that I get EA access or Game Pass occasionally for a month if there is something that interests me.

What I really should get is YouTube premium as it’s the Service I use by far the most.
The thing is I’m not interested in the original content. But the ads are so goddamn annoying.. I swear they make them extra obnoxious to make you subscribe to premium.

You know that almost any add blocker for firefox and most likely on chrome etc blocks ads on youtube?
I haven't seen ads on yt for years! And I don't intent to.
I’m not putting ad blockers on my phone sorry. Plus, premium allows you to play music while your phone is locked whereas regular does not. Ad blockers also don’t give you cobra kai.

About $50 a month. Worth it for unlimited music, free shipping, and as many video games as I can possibly fit into my schedule.

I've whittled mine down to Netflix and PS+, and I don't miss anything I've dropped. Actually less is more for me. I don't feel burdened with too many options / distractions.

Now that I think about it: does Windows 10 now count as a subscription? Its like the one sub that acts as a necessary evil for me.

Netflix, Amazon Prime and I got HBO Go through a streaming service I have with Telus. The Telus one also has some live tv channels and other things.

Pretty sure we're letting our Amazon Prime run out as we don't really order stuff online and the streaming service is kind of trash.

I subscribe to life, man.

Also, I subscribe to the following services:

EA Access (cheap, good selection of action games)
Humble Bundle Monthly (increasing my PC collection for the future when I have a PC better than my Xbox)
Game Pass Ultimate (OMG YES!!!)
Netflix (Coolio...)

I will never again subscribe to:
Spotify (political agendas)

I would consider subscribing to:
HBO Go
Disney (for The Simpsons, d'oh!)
That new Ubisoft service, but probably not (have you seen the price?!)

Is this true? I have thought about getting yt premium, cause I mostly watch yt on my phone or tablet and the ads there are annoying as hell. But I was hesitant, cause I really like the interface and app of spotify over the yt music app, and getting yt premium for 10 bucks just to remove ads and not using their music service on top of spotify premium seemed redundant.

As for my subs.

I currently have:

-Netflix. Use a couple months then take a break, when something good hits subscibe again.
-Amazon Prime. Yearly sub is pretty cheap compared to the yearly amount you would have to pay for netflix, and you get free premium shipping, prime video and a free twitch prime sub every month.
-Currently have a 3 month for the price of one Spotify premium subscription, which expires end of august.
-PS Plus yearly sub, cause I like to play games online, so sony has me by the balls.

And then I have some...spicy subscriptions if you catch my drift. Yeah, I'm one of those guys who pays for the quality stuff, instead of fumbling through tube sites, judge me all you want. :messenger_grinning_smiling:

I’ve never searched for a song that I couldn’t find on YouTube. And the YouTube Music app is decent. It’s algorithm for building a “station” is just okay. Some of the songs it picks for me are a bit perplexing but that might be because I share the account with my family.

Netflix: There's something fun to watch every now and then. Also my mom loves it, uses it frequently and she uses my account.
Ps+: Because of Online play. But I'm playing way less multiplayer games these days and the only one I find myself consistently playing with friends is Rocket League which now has full crossplay with PC. So when it runs out in November I'm probably not going to renew

XBL/PS Plus -if I didn't have friends on both these platforms I'd let them run out
Netflix - Not sure why I have it I barely watch it
Amazon prime- for delivery and other perks but always forget this has a movie/music/comic book component to it
Fios triple play- I take care of an elderly mother so she likes the cable and a landline is a must. Getting her a cell phone would be a massively bad idea .

Gamepass for xbox but its expiring next month and I wont renew it.
Why are you guys getting you tube premium? Is it because of the ads? I am using uBlock origin and I haven't seen a single ad in years.

Its because of no ads regardless of what device you’re using and because of continual play on your phone even after it locks.

And Cobra Kai.
