    I think, ironically, thats the reason its gone up. They need a steady stream of content to stop people doing that. But, yeah, I think it has got to the point that people are going to start rotating subs around.

    Im cycling out of Disney+ for a while, at least until S3 of Mando drops and I would be binning Netflix for a bit if I actually paid for it.

    I've think I've got just about all the subs. Now TV (movies), Netflix, Prime and Disney+. But then life at Hermit Towers revolves around the TV, and the logins are shared with my parents.

    Just netflix here. For me it's still easily the best service. I had prime video a couple of months ago on a free trial and it's pretty good now but miles behind netflix and Disney+ has no where near enough content. I paid for one month to watch mandalorian and soul and won't be continuing.

    Prime has more content than pretty much the rest put together. If you started watching it now for 24hrs a day, it would take you 7 years to get through it.

    Unfortunately, 90% of it is toilet.

    Someone needs to come up with a consolidation service for profile sharing across streaming platforms.

    It'll never happen.

    At the moment weíve got Netflix and Disney having dropped Prime.

    If Iím honest we watch more iPlayer than anything else but thatís partly because no one comes remotely close to the BBC on programmes for pre-schoolers.

    History of swear words with Nic Cage is quite amusing.

    The kind of follow up, Weathering With You, is also very good. It was like 3.99 to buy on Apple TV before Xmas.

    But, yeah, Your Name is excellent. Itís one of my daughters favourite movies, she can just watch and watch it.

    Yeah I'll get mine to watch it some time this week. I'm sure they'll love it when they get their heads around the time jumping etc. I'll have to check out weathering at some point then.

    Same here (plus Hayu purely so my wife can watch the rest of Below Deck). Tbh,it's Nowtv that gets the least love. Kids have always got something on Netflix, we've usually got a few series on the go across Netflix and Prime. And my kids are 2/3 of the way through The Simpsons, and are always dipping into the back catalogue on Disney.

    Will check out Your Name, sounds good. My 8 year old is obsessed with We Can Be Heroes or something (the sequel to Shark Boy and Lava Girl). She watched it 3 times a day last weekend.

    Just started watching it. Went to get a beer, hit pause a half a dozen times and it kept restarting a second later. Let loose a string of profanity, including the C word. I feel like today is going to be a fucking great day.

    I generally absolutely hate reality TV. But this I don't mind and have even watched a few. I hate myself a little for it.

    If you missed it on iPlayer like most people did Back To Life is on Netflix now and is a very good dark sitcom

    After a lifetime of piracy on the high seas, I've only just started embracing streaming services properly.

    A few years ago, when I used to rent with a friend, I used to pay Sky a ridiculous amount every month to watch Football, Silicon Valley, and adverts. I'm now more than happy just paying for 4K Netflix and iPlayer for less than £20 per month. More than enough content, for now.

    I've tried Prime Video numerous times but it really is poor, despite it coming with the added Amazon benefits. Almost everything I've wanted to watch on there costs extra.

    Prime does seem to have got a lot worse lately.

    Your Name is fantastic. You can see why Japan went apeshit for it when it came out. I did cry just a little bit.

    I rated Prime pretty highly. Netflix iss more diverse but the Amazon exclusive stuff was generally better quality and they have a lot of older shows that I wanted to re-run (Lost, Buffy, X-files, etc).

    Compared to the other big ones I find Primeís UI a busy mess. A genuine factor in me dropping it.

    Agreed on the UI. It got an update last year that made it better and it was still shit.

    I actually don't mind it now. It has an option to change subtitle size and colour too, which Netflix doesn't have.

    Best thing about Prime for me is all the shit you can get sent to your house with it. Like literally the next day.

    Yeah the post is amazing. Every time I want something I get me ex to order it for me so I don't need prime. Just before Xmas I ordered something about 8pm and it arrived 10am the next day.
