Dot Com Slash Tech Talk Ziprecruiter the smartest way to hire everyone. You're listening to talking tech today. We're talking about streaming TV services. There's so many of them and so many of us are grappling with what to do. I've gotten a call carol hair. She's editor in chief the USA she was visiting the Elliott Bureau in you know me. GonNa put somebody in the hot seat to join me as a sparring partner. Hi Nicole Hi Jefferson then we were talking about so many services Netflix Hulu. CBS All access Amazon prime and that's what you're already subscribing to now we got Disney plus Apple TV plus. There's ESPN plus. There's so many in many families do not know what to do. You know I agree. I have three Rica's and has been we'll have different interests so we've acquired these streaming services. My husband was big on game of thrones which got us. Hbo My son discovered eleven twenty to sixty three on Hulu which got us to Hulu Amazon prime comes with our prime but I enjoy to catch up on Downton Abbey in advance of the the a new movie coming out and obviously met flex is what's on tonight but I find that we're not using them as much as we probably should to get the value. We're really busy see family so when we do have time to watch something you know. We're generally going to a streaming service. We need something on demand. We don't you know we can't we can't schedule around regular programming grandma so I guess my question to you. A meth Rebecca you Jefferson is do you have recommendations for busy. Families like mine who maybe were oversubscribed at this point but we wanna be able to watch what we want to when we do have that valuable family time I think most people have these services and don't know why they don't open them up even yeah. I would say they take a list. Open it up. Start writing down what you actually want to watch and you're probably be surprised to find. It's not that much that it's easy enough to cancel Certainly you know you can always bring it back. You know what's on right now that you really want to see because I know that Netflix has so when he shows that I am just I don't know what to do. How about you. I think that's a good point again now. That game of thrones is over. I don't know that we need. HBO Even though I've just discovered succession Russian but I'm not sure I'd pay for just for a succession but I think that's a really good advice. If the show you you bought it for his over go ahead and counsel and if there's another one that comes along you can sign back up. I think everything about succession is come back in three months. Watch them all you don't have to wait every week yeah and you just saved thirty thirty forty-five sixty dollars. That's a great idea and again on Hulu. We had that one show and it's run its course. I also think he was watching Flash Gordon or one of those. You know teen game shows but once he's over with that you're right. We don't have to continue it. I know it sounds pretty obvious but sometimes we just let things go because that's human age. The problem with humans is that it takes. It's more work to actually go and disconnect you. Just leave it there and then sometimes you look at your credit card bill and say well. I spent one hundred and eighty dollars on Netflix this year. I didn't didn't need to do that. Did I right exactly and you know every penny counts and so I think that's really good advice to do an audit of your streaming services council the ones you're not using knowing that you can start them back up. If there's there's something you want to watch Nicole Carroll Chief USA Today thank you for being here on talking tech. Thank you Jefferson. I'm Jefferson Graham Melissa Talking Tech.
