Default List your digital / online subscriptions here!

What digital services (SaaS, streaming radios, backup services, content websites etc.) do you subscribe to?

My list:

- Google Drive (1 TB plan)
- Spotify (Family plan)
- NYTimes.com (absolutely love their content quality)
- the-ken.com
- E2E Networks - for the bad boy servers running Team-BHP
- MailChimp (Team-BHP Newsletters)
- Tapatalk (for the useless Android & iOS Team-BHP Apps)
- Two other SaaS I'd rather not name (used for the Team-BHP Store)
- Amazon Prime / Prime Video
- Office 365 (annual plan)

Used to be a Netflix subscriber, but hated their collection - related thread (How to watch great movies for free...without online services (like Netflix) or illegal torrents). Used to pay for Apple Music, then realised that Spotify blows it out of the water - related thread.

I have the following:

1) Amazon Prime/Prime Video: the combination of online content, Amazon Originals and faster delivery on orders
2) Apple Music: love their playlists; mostly Chill / Lounge
3) WSJ: carry over habit from business school

I've used Netflix in the past but did not renew as it wasn't vfm given their content; didn't find Hotstar lucrative either.

Default Re: List your digital / online subscriptions here!

Here are my subscriptions:

- Google Drive (100 GB plan)
- Apple Music (individual)
- Google Play Radio (individual)
- Amazon Drive (100 GB)
- Amazon Prime
- Dashlane (password manager)
- Lastpass (password manager)
- Roboform (password manager)
- Bitwarden (password manager)
- Sticky Password (password manager)
- Gaana (music streaming for 3 months as a trial) Their so called HD streams/downloads are 256-320 kbps MP3s
- Norton Security Premium
- Kaspersky Internet Security
- Bitdefender Total Security
- Zemana Antilogger
- Heimdal Security
- Malwarebytes Premium
- Snort IDS/IPS signatures for my firewall appliance Snort
- PCloud (backup and storage)
- Sync.com (backup and storage)
- Spideroak (backup and storage)
- Zoolz (backup and storage)
- ExpressVPN (VPN)
- PureVPN (VPN)
- Hotspot Shield (VPN)
- Ivacy (VPN)
- VPNSecure (VPN)
- TigerVPN
- Windscribe (VPN)
- VPN Unlimited (VPN)

Gave up on Adobe, Netflix & Dropbox.

Why so many password managers? Well, I don't trust them to be around for too long and given I have several hundred logins, passwords and secure notes I absolutely need a password manager utility. No point putting all your eggs in one basket. Besides with the connected world being what it is there's no doubt each individual needs to practice good password and security management.

I am waiting for Spotify to launch in India. And hopefully Deezer and Tidal too. They stream lossless audio.

Interesting thread.


- Ziggo (basic internet/TV/fixed telephony provider in the Netherlands)
It also includes various free and paid for TV/Movies on demand, Watch later, record function etc.
- Vodafone NL for mobile voice, 3G and 4G
- HBO
- Netflix, I’m piggy backing on my daughter’s family subscription
- Apple Play
- I stream all radio via the respective station’s site and a few dedicated apps
- I buy most of my content, music and video’s, via iTunes
- SiteLock for security on my Internet domain and provider
- Most use FaceTime and Skype to stay in touch with friends and family around the world
- At work I almost exclusively use Skype for business these days.
- Various Adobe packages for my photography (a.o. Photoshop, Lightroom)
- Various online photography courses/
- Kaspersky Security for the various Window platforms in and around the home
- For my travelling I’m signed up to various Pro Travel/flight apps, such as Flight Track, Tripit, etc
- For my own flying (as a pilot) I used to have several subscription to charts and flight planner, but sadly they have all expired.
- OTSupport for various online automative related documentation, workshops, manuals
- AllData.DIY for various online OEM workshops and documentation
- I usually have at least one or two magazines in digital format as they tend to offer it at no extra cost once you subscribe to their paper format. But I don’t like reading magazines/papers on my tablet. I prefer the paper versions. But currently I still have one newspaper (De Volkskrant) and one Classic Car magazine on free trial.
- I do use Flipboard as a good Digital news Magazine as I can customise it to my specific interest.

Probably some more, that I simply forget. Because either I use it so frequently you don’t even realise you have it. Or I use it so infrequently so you don’t realise you have it!

Spotify
Apple Music (For them desi tunes that spotify doesn't have)
Amazon Prime
Netflix

Used to have saavn, replaced that with apple music, but might switch back. Lack of chromecast support and less hindi collection is a downside to apple music, dont care for others, as spotify is used 99% of the time for me. Hell, had 175k minutes of listening in 2017.

Netflix- ~900 per month
Amazon-499 per year
Google Play Music - 99 per month
Gaana - ~100 per month
Smule Karaoke App - 55 per month ( Subscribed for kid and niece-very rarely used)
Office 365- 4 device plan

Netflix is the 4 device Ultra HD Plan. Like the fact that they have a lot of HDR/Ultra HD content-especially the TV Shows. Their kids section is also very good and nicely insulated from the rest of content which enables me to allow my daughter to search for shows.
