    I have both iTunes and Vudu. I prefer iTunes over Vudu because Vudu does not give you the Behind the Scenes and Extras like iTunes has. In addition, Vudu requires Flash which is not good.

    If you give up cable it will free up some cash to buy or subscribe to other content.

    I love Apple tech products, however their brand is so dull, patronising and politically correct that I feel like they represent the antithesis of anything I love in recent content from HBO or Netflix. Hopefully they can pull their collective head out of their collective ass and produce some truly interesting grown-up stuff, but I am not optimistic.

    Do you guys think that Apple missed the mark on the touch bar on the mac book pro by putting it on the keyboard vs making it a touch screen and putting the touch bar on the touch screen?

    No more! Although it is nice having so many options, things are way too complicated. I find subscriptions on my credit card that I forgot about. It was nice when there was just cable and you went out to rent/buy movies. Now you have to have 10 different subscriptions to watch what you'd like or listen to.

    By the time I "bundle" Sling, Netflix, HBO (temporarily to binge watch) and Hulu, after it all adds up I'm considering going back to cable

    They really need to stop with the original content. There's already a glut of content available – much more than any one person can watch. If they want to create their own streaming service to compete with Amazon Prime, Hulu and Netflix, fine. But please stop adding to the glut.
