Netflix Competitors Push Viewers Towards Piracy

Post by whiteribbon » Wed Oct 03, 2018 8:30 pm

Very interesting article about the new rise of piracy after the steady decline of the previous years. It's certainly true in my case. Am a Netflix member since they started their streaming services, added Amazon Prime and iFlix later but stopped 2 of my 3 subscriptions this year and started using popcorntime and various other dubious services again since the main legal ones stopped offering the shows/movies I wanted to see and upped their prices at the same time.

Plus one. :beer3: I retained Amazon prime due to no delivery costs.

How do people find the time to watch it all? The only thing I have time to watch other than Amazon Prime and Netflix is the local news.

I have Amazon Prime, but it's for the delivery benefits. I rarely watch it.
-> If you frequently use Amazon Prime for ordering things I recommend getting the no-fee Prime credit card, you get 5% return

Netflix I am a big fan of for convenience

For streaming https://www.bestfreestreaming.com/ ------I like from this list Fmovies

I don't know, I stopped subscribing to cable a year or two back because I never used it, and I have Netflix now but probably watch it for less than 3 hours a month. If they started charging for Youtube I'd be in trouble though. All those short segments add up.
