Streaming in June: Which services to love or leave

Streaming in June: Which services to love or leave

Have you finished binge-watching yet stranger things 4? Would You Rather Skip HBO Max Until You Can Watch Dragon House on demand? Thanks to their release schedules, you might be thinking of cancel a streaming service – temporarily or even for good. Prices for multiple subscriptions add up quickly, especially in these tough financial times. With that in mind, I’d like to offer a strategy: churn like ice cream.

What exactly does this mean? Subscribe, cancel, switch to another service, then resubscribe, keeping your favorite services rotating. The advantage is that you save money when netflix, Disney+, HBO Max and others don’t have the content you want to watch at any given time. Remember to turn off auto-renewal of your monthly subscriptions. Churning might not be feasible for those of you who share your accounts with people outside of your household, but if you can work out a deal with your co-op streaming buddies, go for it.

To give you a head start this summer, here are my recommendations on which streamers to keep or drop for the month of June, based on new TV shows and movies (I haven’t considered sports and live tv streaming services). Sure, your tastes may be different, but if nothing else, I urge you to at least consider the concept of churning to save. It’s easier than you think.

Why you should keep these services in June

netflix: Frenzy-worthy new releases include Stranger Things, Floor Is Lava, The Umbrella AcademyPeaky Blinders Season 6, Netflix is ​​a joke episode, the debut of Spriggan anime and the last seasons of CW shows.

Hulu: Glee is coming here in June, as well as The Orville: New Horizons (June 2), Only Murders in the Building Season 2 (June 28), Love, Victor’s final season (June 15) and new premieres for networks such as NBC, ABC and the Fox summer programming. Shows like America’s Got Talent are coming back.

Starz: Right now, you can get super cheap Starz at $3 a month for six months if you’re a new or returning customer. If you already have it, keep it because P-Valley launches its season 2 on June 3, and Ghostbusters: Afterlife was released here in May. Sign up before Spider-Man: No Way Home arrives in July.

First video: You’re probably already paying for this one as a Prime member. But even if you shell out $9 for a standalone subscription, it’s worth noting The boys are back on June 3 with three new episodes, followed by a weekly release schedule. And if you liked Jenny Han’s The Summer I Turned Pretty book series, the TV adaptation will be released on June 17.

Put those rigs on ice in June

Disney+: Unless you have kids or love Star Wars (ahem, Obi-Wan), skip this month. Ms. Marvel debuts June 8, but you can wait and see all eight episodes next month. Some of you might find Disney Plus worth the cost of watching Doctor Strange 2 on June 22, but otherwise, follow these instructions to cancel.

HBO Max: This one is controversial because I consider HBO Max to be generally excellent, but there aren’t too many hot new releases in June that would justify the $10-15 monthly price tag. There’s a Father of the Bride reboot movie coming June 16th and Westworld season 4 premieres June 26th, but honestly, you can just wait until July to start streaming it (or not). The season will end with a total of eight episodes. For information on how to cancel this service, see HBO Max’s help page.

Apple TV Plus: Ted Lasso is not returning this month. The Freshman Loot series debuts on June 24, and while Apple TV Plus is making some high-quality productions, not much else is happening here for June.

Peacock: The only notable new releases this month are Real Housewives of Dubai, Real Housewives Girls’ Trip Season 2, and the reboot of Queer as Folk. If you are not into these series, we suggest cancel Peacock or at least downgrade to a free account for June.

Paramount Plus: South Park: The Movie Streaming Wars is out June 1, so if you’re a fan who’s in the middle of your billing cycle, take advantage. Evil returns with Season 2 on June 12. But with a total of 13 episodes and a weekly airing schedule, that too can be binge if you wait until later in the season. Do not hesitate to cancel Paramount Plus for the moment.

Obi-Wan Kenobi episodes on Disney Plus drop weekly, so you’ll have to wait until July to catch them all.


Be very thrifty and wait until July

If you’re not someone who gets FOMO on a regular basis, a smart method is to wait until most or all of your favorite series’ episodes land on a platform. This way, rather than paying for a service for two or three months to cover 6-10 weeks of a show, you can catch up on everything by subscribing for a month. And then repeat the cycle again. I did it for Moon Knight.

As an example, there are six episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi Season 1 on Disney Plus. The finale airs in late June, so all episodes will be available to stream in July. Although it premiered on May 27 and runs through June, why pay for both months when you can expect to watch it in full anytime in July?

Think about how much you pay per month for each streaming service you have and do the math. Netflix costs $10 to $20, Disney Plus costs between $3 and $8 depending on the plans, HBO Max costs $10 or $15, Hulu starts at $7, and Starz costs $9. The others have a base rate of $5 per month. If you decide to unsubscribe, set yourself a calendar reminder to ping you when it’s time to resubscribe or cancel. Take a break for the sake of your wallet, then reassess things next month or August. We’ll see you in July for another streaming breakdown.
