To think that streaming has become such a huge part of our downtime in recent years is quite remarkable.
New figures suggest that Australians are spending a lot on such platforms.
A major area
The Guardian reported on PwC's data recently. It revealed that households in Australia spend $4,500 a year on entertainment, with streaming platforms and gaming being particularly prominent.
Moreover, the survey found that over 75 per cent of households paid for a streaming service last year. Such figures raise the question: Is there a way we can keep our streaming expenses under control?
One suggestion might be to reassess which platforms you will ultimately need. Its easy to sign up for a service to watch one or two episodes before keeping them until you are done watching them. If your favourite shows are actually elsewhere, it's time to drop them.
Sports streaming is now available.
Nowadays, streaming services include not only TV shows and movies, but also many sports enthusiasts who will utilize them to catch the latest action.
If you are worried about budgeting, you may want to consider whether you are fully utilising the services at their maximum potential. Is it time to rethink?
When it comes to sports, it is worthwhile to think outside the box. For instance, have you considered that certain apps include live streaming? These services are found at a few of the country's leading bookies, and are ideal if you want to both watch and bet on the move.
With streaming, entertainment has opened up a whole new world for entertainment, with a wide variety of interesting TV and sports content.
If you think that your spending is slipping out of control, please consider these suggestions as a starting point.
