Netflix, Crave, Amazon Prime, Spotify, YouTube Premium, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, PlayStation Plus, Nintendo Switch Online are all the services that I currently subscribe to.
Are you in the same boat as me, feeling like you currently have too many subscription services in your life? The worst thing about it is that I don’t know what I could possibly get rid of, Netflix Originals and HBO (via Crave) feel vital, and I use Amazon Prime to ship things to me very quickly.
YouTube Premium allows me to download content on YouTube, a feature I love, Xbox Game Pass Ulitmate comes with so many games, and PlayStation Plus lets me play games with my friends.
Lastly, with the Nintendo Switch Online I typically only use it to play Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and lose against kids half my age.
While I understand that each month this is costing me nearly $100 (I have the highest tier of Crave and Netflix), I still somehow feel like I need them all. And with Disney+ coming to Canada very soon, you know that I’ll have to get that, simply for all of the new episodes of The Proud Family.
But frankly, paying nearly $100 per month for all of these services is way too much money and I feel a sense of subscription fatigue. There are some months where I never even touch Amazon Prime or Nintendo Switch Online, but yet, I wouldn’t want to get rid of them. It’d be nice to disconnect from them all and to keep that extra $90+ in my pocket each month, but that’s not the case.
I just wish that there was one subscription service for everything, instead of going to Crave for The Handmaid’s Tale, Prime Video for The Boys and Netflix for The Umbrella Academy.
