How are lowmediaconsumption people

2021-01-02 16:10:08.0331+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

How are low-media-consumption people managing streaming subscriptions? We signed up for Disney+ to watch Soul, and now I have to remember to cancel it before February, but I want to leave it available in case anything else comes up...

As I tweeted, we’re managing them by not subscribing. If we can’t buy a show on plastic and aluminum circles, we don’t get it. We’ve got something like a thousand DVDs of TV shows and movies to keep us entertained when we want to watch the idiot-box.

Thanks to our comcastic internet service here, streaming... well, it works fine when everything works. And then there’s a hiccup and we’re watching watch-hands “buffering.” No thanks.

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
