We.... have all of these?  We only have Hulu because we dropped TV through Spectrum.  Amazon we get because of Prime.  We've thought about dropping Netflix but we're currently watching at least 2 shows on it.  We will likely drop HBO for a while since we're not using it enough to justify it.

the only HBO shows I watch are westworld and silicon valley, neither of which are returning until 2020.  And even those, I usually just "find" on the Internet ;)

I have a love hate relationship with netflix.  I feel like it never has anything that I want to watch, like if i say "i feel like watching back to the future" its not there.  But on the other hand, last year, I binge watched like 10 different entire tv series.  None of which I would have been looking to find on my own had they not been suggested by netflix in the first place.

Yeah... it's taken me awhile to change my mindset from Netflix being a place to find all the old shows and movies I remember to a place that is almost all new content just from them like an HBO or a broadcast network. Like if I go to CBS Watch I'm not expecting to see old episodes of Modern Family.

Netflix is trying to get so much content that it controls that there won't be much difference between cable and Netflix other than the specific shows on each. Both will have a wide selection of every kind of random TV show or movie imaginable.

I realize I have all these right now one way or another... My ranking:


HBO Now
Netflix

Hulu
Amazon


Although I'd probably drop HBO after 6 months or so once I watched everything on it I wanted to watch.
