Currently on a YouTube Premium (4 months) & Google Stadia free trial (6 months).

Played stadia once, was fine.
Haven’t watched any YouTube videos yet though, but when I do, there will be no adverts. How about that?

Back when Lovefilm etc. first launched and there were tons of companies doing the mail-to-home free trial thing, I think I went month to month with about 12 different ones for a year. Then they all got bought out by Lovefilm and then Netflix happened. All true.

Think i’ve signed up for loads of free trials that are currently costing me a small fortune

dbpoweramp (for about the 90th time). Useful for the ol’ file format conversion, if you catch my drift.

Picture of Drake not looking happy: Free trials where when you cancel them, the trial instantly ends

Don’t think I’ve ever said no to anything as much as I’ve said no to Youtube Premium

Forgot about lovefilm! I remember being so excited at my uni halls one year when I regularly rented films and would get a little package and watch it on my laptop. How times have changed

My free trial of Apple TV is running out soon, gonna cancel it but I guess I’ll have to pay when the next season of Ted Lasso comes out

Does 3 months of Mubi for Β£1 count? Done that again.

The best thing about it is they take a direct debit for 3 months (33p, 33p, 34p). Charmingly inoffensive.

β€œoh i’ll just do it when i’ve finished this”

This being my life

That’s fair. I’ve boldly set the reminder 1 day before the deadline. Starting to think I should set a different reminder for every hour of that day, to be certain.

It counts

When lovefilm shut they didn’t ask for anyone who currently had discs to return them, so I got Moonlight and something else on blu-ray forever out of it. So that’s maybe Β£15 back.

Used to rinse Amazon Prime by using the β€˜alias’ thing on Hotmail where you just add a β€˜+whatever’ in your email address and Amazon would think its a new email address. So I’d sign up for the trial, immediately cancel, then when the trial expired do it again with another alias of my email address.

I’m due in court next Tuesday.
