Since Netflix, HBO Max, Disney+ and Prime Video have been living with us, the money spent on streaming entertainment services has skyrocketed. With four of the most popular platforms, the monthly cost can reach 40 euros, which gives an annual amount of almost 500 euros. So you can save money.
To save a few hundred euros a month, you have to get rid of the idea that you have to pay to have all the streaming services contracted at the same time. It’s not necessary and unsubscribing is as easy as pressing a button.
In the days of cable and pay TV you had to call the company and ask them to cancel the service, now it’s as easy as clicking cancel subscription and when you want to come back click subscribe. All this takes a few seconds.
Well, the way to save money in the age of streaming is to cancel all your services now. Literally today, in one. Then, re-engage the service you’re using right now because there’s a series you really like or you’re halfway through.
Let’s face it, not everyone has something you’re looking at right now. The vast majority of people don’t watch content on Netflix, Disney+, Apple TV+ and HBO Max every day.
For this reason, what they advise is that, month by month, let’s select the series that interest us or the first ones that reach the platforms and opt for the service that the more attractive content has according to our preferences.
Another solution people try: Share the password. A significant number of people do it in the United States, according to new data from the Leichtman Research Group.
This study says that about a third of Netflix subscribers in the United States share their login credentials with another person, which is quite a headache for the company, as you will now see.
Netflix password sharing has become such a serious problem that the streaming company has launched a pilot project to fix the problem. The goal? See if you can squeeze money from as many users as possible.
Meanwhile, password sharing is as legal and legal as any other method, so it’s not a bad idea if you’re looking to save a few bucks at the end of the year.
