1. Look for deals
Deals are often found at the beginning of the year or the middle of the year, these sales often start off with a bang, I originally got my netflix for free when I signed up with Optus, saving me $12 a month which was great as I didn't know if I'd like it or not.
2. Try the before you buy option
Sometimes you might not like what they have to offer, so far I've tried stan, and netflix and prefer netflix, it just depends on what works for you, whether it has enough diversity. I love netflix because it has doco's, comedy, and drama.
3. Research what offer is best
Netflix has many offers, I chose the $11 a month one because I didn't need the ultra hd service as I don't have a compatible laptop etc to watch on it anyways, and I only wanted to stream it on two things such as my tablet, laptop or television.
4. Free to air websites
These are free and require you only go have your internet connected! it means you can find similar shows, I love abc dramas! and their cop shows are pretty good to, you can catch up anytime and still not pay a cent!
let me know if these tips have helped you! also what service do you have?
Happy new year!
