Youtube by far. I’ve spent more time browsing the netflix catalog than actually watching anything on there.

Youtube because...

  • no flashlight reviews on Netflix Silly
  • myriads of informative or entertaining videos on YT (e.g. „Norway in 4K“)
  • music videos or full concerts on YT
  • search engine on Netflix really suxxs
  • I only found a few series worth watching on Netflix (BB, BCS, Dark, Lupin)
  • Most films I was looking for were not included on Netflix (Germany)
  • Netflix frequently increases their subscription fees and to me they have become too expensive

Remember, it’s 1 whole year from January 1 to Dec 31 @ 365 days straight. Psychologically speaking, after a few months, would one not crave for say…a good Titanic movie??

The correct answer would be Kodi.
But I’ll take youtube for now.

I looked at this thread earlier and it didn’t register but just now I realized that with the travel restrictions here I am actually marooned on a tropical island and have been for a whole year!!

I got Netflix for my daughter, I’m much happier with a good book.

I feel sorry for people who don't have a hobby or interest to escape to.

For years everyone fought to ditch their cable box and replace it with so called free services. Now these same people have Hulu, Netflix, Amazon, and they pay more per month than they did with th the cable box. We fell right into the trap while Bezos was picking out his $400M yacht.

Netflix doesn’t work on rooted phones, probably some equally dumb shenanigans would stop it working on my pc..

Youtube doesn’t have much worth watching. I mostly use it for gun takedowns and other tutorial.

Gotta say neither lol

I only like high CRI. Collection:

Fireflies NOV-MU 21 4500k E21A

Fireflies ROT66 219B SW45 D220

Fireflies E07 Copper 219B SW45k? (odd/higher lumen bin with lower r9 and higher cct?)

Fireflies E07 219B SW45k

Fireflies E07x Pro sst20 FA4 4000k (mail)

 

Varmint removal:

Convoy M21A C8 ver SST20 4000k (5a)

I think there would be something seriously wrong in me if that tropical island wouldn’t be entertaining enough by itself.

Still if I must choose, then it’s always the one that is free. Freedom.

Well, it has to be YouTube. There are about 0 instructional videos on how to survive on Netflix…
If it’s just for entertainment I would pick Netflix though.

Not really a fair compare. Tube has movies and general interest stuff, plus music, and videos about flashlights, Natflux just has… I don’t even know anymore it’s been so long since I used it. I’m assuming it’s still just whatever crap they could get licensing on, but generally stuff made in studios or “professionally” made pseudo-entertainment.

Which Youtube are we talking? The free or the paid streaming service? I can not comment on Youtube TV but the free service is my go to for repair or music videos. Netflix is ok for movies and shows. Netflix swept the Emmys this year.

While I don’t agree with YT’s policies on suppressing free speech, the platform is unmatched and just works great. I vote YT but only on the condition you have Premium…the thought of going back to ads every minute is painful.

As I had to upgrade my AppleTV, which is an overly expensive media box and overly sensitive remote, I was thinking of just such. An alternative would be using an AdBlocker on my LAN. However, I fear this may slow down all traffic. Someone here on the forum may have an insight on this.

Nevertheless, I may take up Curiosity Stream/Nebula for the documentaries and the critical views.

But I digress.

None of the above. I prefer nice company, as tropical islands can have cold nights too.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

I heard from someone that if you watch too many Youtube, eventually you’ll end up watching some twisted dark weird scary stuff even though one might not have gone there intentionally for that material. And then it affects you mentally for a long time?

I will politely disagree.

I cut the cable about 9 years ago. Have not looked back. I do not have Netflix. The ONLY service I pay for is Disney because my daughter loves the movies. I get Amazon Prime (The big package) for the free shipping here in Alaska it pays for itself in a month. So yes I get Amazon movies, I would pay for Prime even if I did not get movies. I have been using and upgrading Kodi and a friends Plex server (Over 5032 Movies and 400 TV series).

So here is the breakdown of what you listed.

Netflix is $14.00
Hulu $6.00
Amazon Prime Video $9.00 a Month
Disney 6.99 a month

So $35.00 a month.
My cable TV Company charges $105 for the expanded basic cable and no premium channels that is without any internet attached.

So you might want to check your numbers before bragging or belittling people.
