Some of this was happening even earlier. An example was Star Trek: Discovery. I watched the first couple of episodes on broadcast TV. It then switched to the CBS streaming. I really didn't like it that much and I wasn't going to pay to watch it.

It’s now on Paramount+, actually. But you can pay extra to watch it on Amazon. I want it on broadcast, too.

I’m subbed to Netflix, HBOMaxm, Amazone Prime and I have a couple of channels, both broadcast and cable, through my internet/cable provider.

I watch it on BBCAmerica, through that internet provider. Well, actually I haven’t watched it yet. I was waiting for the new season to finish.

Yeah, I don’t feel like I’m using that many streaming services, but they do add up…
