We switched to OTA broadcasts in 2012 and 1 paid streaming service for $10-ish/month. That's 1 login. We don't sign up for any other accounts free or not. Every few months, we talk about canceling Amazon and switching to some other paid streaming service for a few months, but never get around to it.

There are basically 4 massive media companies in the US. They won't sell to each other. ABC, NBC/Comcast, AT&T, and CBS. If following the money for most other channels, you'll see their parent company ends up being one of those 4, almost always. There are exceptions, but not many.
