Disney about to start offering their movies via a streaming medium of its own similar to that of Netflix, starting in 2019 (if not sooner).

I'm astonished they haven't done this already. Other content owner's have. If you've got a library the software is now easy.

I'm will to pay for 1 mabye 2 streaming services. But I'm not going to pay for so many I might as well be paying for cable.
Also I'm not going to pay for specialty stuff. Paying $15 USD a mother for what is 90% Mickie's clubhouse and Hanna Montana. Is not a thing.

I have netflix and HBO nordic (usually only during GOT season)
There is only one other I would be willing to pay for. And The would be a BBC steaming service. I would pay to have access to all the who's. Attenborough's. Monty python. Various costume dramas. Other comedy shows. And crime series

Netflix is $8 USD per month. You could buy *TEN* of those and still be paying a lot less than cable. I *prefer* to have just one streaming service, because obviously, but I have two because Amazon Prime includes a lot of worthwhile video. I expect we'll probably get YouTube Red within the next year. II could see going to four or five if we had to. Cable is $130 USD-$150 around here, without premium channels.

If you have kids, the Disney streaming service would probably be a great deal. Otherwise, why? You can get discs from the library when you really want to see the movies.

Amazon Prime is useless unless you are in America, 99% of everything on there is unavailable unless you are American(and they don't tell you until you try and watch it, so you have lots to choose from but 99% of the time you'll won't be able to watch it.

Netflix is $13 USD here, cable is $62 USD

There's hardly any Disney stuff on Netflix UK so won't affect us really

Gunfreak, Amazon Prime is usually useless in the U.S. also. Seems that anything I want to watch is not part of the free package. One exception has been Man in the High Castle.

There are some good, old war movies on Amazon Prime Video, and a really scattered, possibly eclectic, handful of worthwhile video My wife and daughter are enjoying Downton Abbey. Penn & Teller are on there, I discovered accidentally last night. Next week The Tick arrives, that might be good. I wouldn't pay for it right now, it just comes free with Amazon Prime, but it's not worthless and could get better.

Video streaming is a young industry. I am curious to see where it goes.
