There are so many services now and most have a lot of good content. At the end of the day it's going to get expensive and/or you have to leave some content off.
Right now I have Uverse (great price), Sling for 4 months (because Uverse dropped NFLN and RZ), Netflix and Prime. I have no interest in Disney. Apple is of interest as some of their announced original (they will only have original) content sounds good and it's only $5.
Some of those streaming services overlap above, but yeah, it is the inevitable consequence of Netflix's successes - and ironically, the rise of these new streaming services that inevitably will pull their catalogues from Netflix will make Netflix a much dicier service to justify spending money on. They basically opened the door and are at risk of being trampled by everyone else.
I've got UVerse U200 + HBO, Netflix (split it with family), Prime, Hulu with commercials is built into my Spotify subscription, ESPN+, NBC Sports Gold (for soccer) and Disney+. I think if I do the math, I end up spending about $130 a month those services. If I cut the cord and went with YouTube TV, I'd probably save $20 a month. That isn't enough to justify the switch right now.
