Row row row your device gently down the stream.

The way we get our video entertainment is changing so fast it makes my computer crash.

Yesterday “Disney +” made its debut and not without problems.  Here are some of the complaints.

  • The various issues included people not being able to access the service or some of its features.  Some people couldn’t even sign up . . . or once they did, they couldn’t log on.
  • Some people bought Disney+ online, then couldn’t get it to load onto their Smart TVs or the PlayStation app.
  • Some people clicked on titles, only to find them “unavailable”.  Others experienced long load times, or the app crashing once a movie or TV episode was exited out of.
  • By 10:00 A.M., Disney issued a statement saying, quote, “The consumer demand for Disney+ has exceeded our high expectations.  We are working to quickly resolve the current user issue.  We appreciate your patience.”
  • Another complaint that’s come up, that has nothing to do with glitching, is the fact that “The Simpsons” is presented in the wrong aspect ratio . . . which means that some of the sight gags are CUT OFF.

So what are we going to do, we complain about the high cost of cable TV, and then if you want to stream certain types of programing and movies the cost adds up.

It is a question I ask myself a lot “Should I just subscribe to streaming services?”

But there are so many! Istream.com has this to help you decide.  Now remember these things seem to change every day with Apple and Disney in the picture and some people all up in arms because of programing choices changing.

  1. Netflix

Netflix is the ultimate solution for watching movies and TV shows. Therefore it’s our top pick out of all streaming services available out there. When it comes to content quality, ease of use and entertainment Netflix is hard to ignore. It has an excellent collection of TV shows and movies to choose from, and the best part is there are no ads! You can subscribe to Netflix for just $7.99/month.

  1. Hulu

Not a fan of Netflix? If it doesn’t suit your needs, you can always go for the next best alternative, Hulu. It is a less expensive version of Netflix and a great choice for TV show lovers. Hulu offers a range of different TV shows, network shows, and cable shows a day after they air while also giving access to a variety of good movies and anime. The service does have ads however, even if you purchase a subscription. So if you’re willing to live through a couple of minutes of ads then Hulu is a decent alternative to go for.

  1. Amazon Video

Amazon’s very own TV streaming service Amazon Video provides access to original TV shows as well as granting access to top shows from a number of other service providers like HBO. You can either subscribe to Amazon Video for $8.99 or Amazon Prime for $12.99 unlocking access to even more content in addition to a heap of shopping discounts, rewards and other perks. Amazon Video also lets you purchase or rent movies that you like and supports 4K HDR streaming.

  1. HBO Now

HBO Now’s video library consists of the latest and popular TV shows like Game of Thrones and also some classic shows like The Sopranos. It also lets you watch movies from different genres like Comedy, Action, Adventure Sci-Fi and more. However, the service is available exclusively in the US and certain US territories.

  1. DirecTV Now

DirecTV Now offers several live TV channels as well as the option to purchase exclusive channels like HBO. You can get it for a $40 subscription to gain instant access without installing any satellite dish or cables. DirecTV Now is therefore great for TV streaming.

  1. Sling TV

Starting from $20 a month Sling TV Sling TV s access to a variety of TV channels including HBO, Disney, CNN, etc. You can also add more TV channels for just $5. It also provides the feature of recording TV shows to watch later.

  1. Crackle

The Sony owned platform that lets you watch various movies and TV shows free. Its content includes some popular movies as well as original TV shows. The downside is that you have to bear through a fair amount of commercials.

  1. YouTube TV

With a diverse collection of some of the best news and live sports channels. It also covers content from some famous entertainment networks like NBC, AMC, CNN, and ESPN. YouTube TV is as of now the most subscribed to service in the US. It remains one of the best options for live TV streaming.

  1. Vevo

Vevo is the perfect streaming solution for music fans. You can find your favorite music bands and artists or discover the latest music streams. It is totally free to watch anything

  1. Twitch

Undoubtedly the best streaming service for gamers. You can stream yourself while you play a video game or browse and watch other gaming channels or popular gamers. You can even watch live sports channels for free.

Now for me I do have a couple of the free streaming services like Pluto which I got specifically for a channel of MST 3000 that runs 24/7

Fite TV for some Pro Wrestling show I enjoy

The one I pay for is WWE network, you know the wresting things.

So what is the answer to how much you pay just remember how everyone jumped on the CableTV bandwagon and now complain because of cost.  I see the same thing happening now with streaming service.

Dang if I didn’t love TV so much I would probably read a book!
