“An ingenious con to squeeze everyone for more money through recurring subscription fees from multiple streaming services.”

There are too many streaming services

On Mashable Raymond Wong argues that with the arrival of Disney+ we have reached streaming services peak making the whole point of cord cutting and saving money completely pointless.

The biggest issue I have with our new cord-cutting lifestyle is that the dream of paying less than cable seems to be over. The only difference now is that instead of paying one company for content, we're paying several different ones.

Because each service offers its own selection of content, many of which are exclusive, it's not a matter of, say, subscribing to Netflix or Hulu or Disney+. Increasingly, it's becoming Netflix and Hulu and Disney+, etc.

I want one streaming service that offers TV shows, movies, and live TV in one bundle for a single attractive monthly fee — nice and simple.
