    I know this is a borderline topic to bring up, but I was hoping we could use this thread to network streaming services to have access to different services we might not be able to otherwise.

    Services I subscribe to.

    Netflix Ultra HD
    Amazon Prime
    Hulu

    Services I would be interested in swapping
    Youtube TV (willing to pay for half)
    CBS All Access
    Disney +
    Criterion
    HBO

    Anyone willing to share/trade logins for streaming services?

    Man, splitting youtube TV would be tempting. Does it have suns games and AMC? does it have DVR if you arent watching when the show is on?

    I have
    netflix
    hulu
    amazon prime
    Disney+

    ok so it does DVR and I would save $80 a year from buying the walking dead but would come out of pocket $300 a year to pay for half of youtube TV.

    Still a significant increase. Would allow me to watch suns games and all 3 walking dead shows, espn and more. If no one has it already, I would be tempted to throw down on that with you guys.

    Some services do allow you to share up until a limited number. For example, I believe Hulu used to let you share with 2 or 3 other users. I could be wrong, but some of them actually have this as an official policy.

    YoutubeTV actually has 6 different accounts that you can use, up to 3 simultaneous streams, and each use their own profile via Google, so you have separate watch history, DVR, etc.

    If you do want to go half on it, let me know. It would make more sense for you to be the primary account holder, as I'm moving to CO and we might get their local Fox Sports channel instead. I would be willing to paypal you the money.

    I had never considered it before but splitting the bill definitely makes it tempting. I imagine there is a tax too so it is probably actually 60 a month? I will look deep into it tonight after work too.

    it looks like there is no contract too so worst case we could plan a 2 month trial and see what we think.

    sounds like I probably would have a third that has my attitude:

    the deals sounds great but I dont know how much I would use it. Without a contract, I know I would throw $20 at a month and see if I find it worth it. Told him talk to his wife tonight and let me know if they at least want to go one month and try it out. Then it would be $20 ea.

    I'm fine splitting it three ways. Let me know. I'm just as cheap as you are. ;)

    I'm confident that I will say lets do it by tomorrow and set it up sometime tomorrow night.

    also, at that point, I can probably set up my d+ to share and split with you too. might as well.

    my buddy forgot to talk to his wife and will tonight. I'm selling him on just trying it for a month and seeing how it goes at $20 each for three parties. (I'm assuming taxes are involved)

    I believe YouTube TV would be location based off your IP. If you shared with an AZ resident you'd still get CO locals and regionals.

    Also, I think YouTube TV does some modest password sharing enforcement and locations in different broadcast regions could get flagged.

    Here's is the link.

    I live in the east valley and share with a friend in the west valley and have had no issues so far since the start of the NBA season. But outside AZ would likely not work.

    Thanks for the info. I might have to watch via PC and use a VPN.

    id say you just roll the dice and if they block you, you team up with people in CO.

    @dreamcastrocks have you done the two week trial yet?

    I'm going to find a third person without issue. I'm thinking I'ma fire up the two week trial and try it out one of these nights coming up.
