Curious to know from people that purchase OD services not who get it as an add-on


Do people here pay all year round for OD services or Purchase the service only at certain times of the year?


Was wondering if many spend the $15 or so a month all year round but will buy Netflix for say 6 months and Lightbox for the other 6 months etc?

Netflix all year round, they're coming up with new content all the time.
If They ran out of programmes I'm interested in would unsubscribe, but at moment more there can watch.

Netflix all year (about to be free for 12 months with my Spark connection), Lightbox free with Spark connection, Hulu all year, Google Play Music with YouTube Red all year, Fanpass monthly sub when there are major cricket series on (normally 4 months of the year). Even ignoring the temporary Netflix discount, I'm still saving $500 per year over MySky Basic HD + Sport, and I get way more content.

Do any of you find that with the extra channels and extra content that you tend to ditch a series quicker than you would previously?


Or you find that there is so many series of the same genre you feel that it is overload?


I have cut back on the number of series I watch, I found I was starting to watch them just for the sake of watching it and getting into quantity over quality.


Still watch too much sports though!
