Gunning for Netflix

HBO Max Launched May 27, 2020: the Battle Begins

Follow the money and you find out why the streaming titans are all chasing Netflix. Netflix has ruled the streaming industry since its launch in 1997. The major entertainment players didn’t take this start up seriously–big mistake.

In 1997 cable TV was the top dog because it’s only competition was the very limited over-the-air TV and unreliable in a storm Satellite service. In 2017 industry reports counted 73 percent of US households with cable subscription service of some kind. Last year that number had dropped to just 44 percent and 62 percent of adults subscribe to one or more streaming services. As of 2020, Comcast, the largest cable subscription company, has 22 million subscribers and that number continues to drop. Netflix boasts a whopping 169 million accounts world-wide.

The streaming business forms two camps — streaming entertainment and live broadcast information. Streaming companies like Amazon and Netflix purchase movies or option new series content that is uniquely their own. The Live Broadcast industry purchases rights to cable and network broadcasting and sells it in smaller packages tailored to profile interests like basic news and movies, basic news and sporting events, or even just basic news.

If you are a cord cutter trying to save money or just trying to get the best value, the learning curve can be very steep. Netflix and Amazon were the only options for years, but the networks, studios, and big tech have all joined the race.

Good News: More choices. Bad News: Confusion.

Live TV Broadcasting

Watching the major VHF/UHF networks is the least expensive option. You’ll need a TV antenna and a digital tuner (either embedded in your flat screen TV or as an add on device if you have an older tube TV), but that is all the hardware necessary to get CBS, NBC, ABC and PBS in most areas.

If you are living in a geographic region where broadcast signals get interrupted by things like mountains, valleys, or dense forests, you can ax the antenna and pay for cable or a live streaming service (see the chart).

The cost of a streaming service is compatible with cable pricing channel for channel. Most cable channels offer 3 or 4 price levels with a mix of channels. The streaming services let you customize and scale those channel selections so that you do save money. But research is key.

You get choices.

Instead of paying your cable or TV provider each month, you can save big money every month by choosing bundled streaming services and a an add-on TV antenna.

How much can you save?

Your entertainment cost could be $0 after investing in an over-the-air antenna if you usually watch network broadcast shows — ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, and FOX. Those networks broadcast free of charge in HDTV all the time. That’s right! These channels are free in most areas. You can check your local OTA network availability at the FCC Digital Reception Maps website. If your area shows networks in green, you’re good to go with just an HDTV antenna.

If you’re addicted to cable news — CNN and FOX News — or you want premium options, there are more choices than ever before and you’re still going to save a lot of money over traditional cable.

If you haven’t used a streaming service yet — Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube, Roku — there are some basic requirements. Make sure your internet connection is fast enough. You can check requirements on our Basic Guide to Streaming.

The A la Carte TV menu.

You Tube Live Streaming
YouTubeTV – 2 weeks free trial / $49.99 per month/local channels / Unlimited Cloud DVR space/Up to 6 accounts and 3 simultaneous streams/works on Roku, Apple TV, Playstation, Xbox, Android, FireTV, and most major smart TV applications. Pros: a lot of sports programming, local channels. Cons: No NFL, NHL

Hulu LiveHulu Live – free one week trial / $54.99 per month. Local channels / 50 hours of cloud DVR / 2 screens simultaneously (you can add-on a $9.99 unlimited screens buy up) / works on Roku, Apple TV, Playstation, Xbox, Android, FireTV, and most major smart TV applications.

Customized Viewing Options

Bundling your options can save more.

DisneyPlusDisney+ $6.99 per month for access to the massive Disney, Pixar, Marvel, StarWars and National Geographic library. That’s a bargain for a lot of entertainment, but an add-on to one of the live TV subscriptions above for most households.

Disney+ and an OTA network antenna for live broadcast will cost just $6.99 per month.

Disney+ and Hulu and an OTA network antenna for live local channels = $12.99 per month. You still get on demand access to your favorite basic cable TV programs after they’ve been broadcast, but you won’t be able to watch those channels live.

Disney+ YouTubeTV = $56.99 per month. Live TV, Cable channels and DVR services. You lose the massive Hulu on Demand feature but you save $15 over Hulu Live + Disney + Unlimited Streams.

Still more choices.

If your not married to your local network broadcasts these options are budget friendly ways to get live cable channels. Again, all of these can be paired with an over-the-air antenna for viewing local news and network broadcast prime time.
