It’s almost 2023, and streaming services are once again creeping up! This year has been an increase in everything from gas, groceries, rent, and streaming services. Everything keeps increasing in price, and everyone is forced to pay more.
While some streaming services have teased their plans to increase prices in the upcoming year, many providers randomly announce their price hikes.
In response to or in anticipation of price increases, families can choose to pick lower tiers which often include ads like you would see commercials on cable television. Many households might not like seeing ads, but choosing a plan with ads can reduce their monthly costs by at least a couple of dollars.
Some services, like Hulu, limit account sharing, but others do not yet enable these location-based features. In this case, families can save money by sharing streaming service accounts and cutting their monthly costs.
When the race to the top of the streaming industry began, everyone saw nearly each television network create its streaming service. However, as the market demands fewer options, companies have been forced to bundle and merge their networks to stay alive.
