50 Cheapest Streaming Services For Cord-cutting

There used to be a time where some streaming services were much better than others. That's no longer the case: streaming services are all different. Depending on which genres, stories, or ways you like to consume entertainment - there is a streaming platform out there for you. 

But if you want a little bit of everything, then things can get very expensive. A while ago I wrote about a technique to make the most out of your streaming subscriptions while saving a lot of money (I calculated I save $375 each year by doing this): rotating subscriptions. 

We all watch a maximum of two to three shows each month, and those are usually on the same platform, so why keep all the other subscriptions if you're not using them? My trick is to get one new streaming platform every month, and cancel whatever one I had the month before. I try to never have more than one subscription at a time. You save money, you reduce your options because you have less to choose from (something called "paradox of choice"), and you're always exposed to new platforms. 

So if you're thinking of something similar, here is a great place to start: choosing streaming services not by theme, but by which one is cheapest. This way maybe you can get something that's a little outside of your usual tastes, but it still won't cost you a lot. Or if you're on a budget and wonder which streaming service to get, this is also for you.
