Just a bone to pick

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by JudyM (a host of the Video & Multimedia forum).

It seems there's a new rush to form premium streaming channels lately. Payment extra, of course. Looks like they are putting their popular shows there and only showing reruns on their cable stations that we already pay for. Dang, can't they give viewers a break during the pandemic! Feeling like a rip off is in play.

1. Totally agree

I like to flip on the TV and use the remote and watch my programs. Maybe I'm old fashioned.

I have a Roku but prefer to keep it to one streaming service, Netflix. I don't want to have to manage a dozen subscriptions with creeping rates and as many crappy streaming apps with inconsistent user interfaces.

I'm looking at you CBS! Picard, Star Trek: Discovery, Twilight Zone, all the cool nerdy stuff is only on CBS All Access. Which means NO access for those of us who all ready max out their entertainment budget on CATV or SATV. What a bummer!

CATV/SATV carved out a niche in aggregating all this content together. Between this and all the blackouts and advertising difficulties on their aging systems, they are losing the battle.
