I prefer Anystream. Its $$$$. But for most services i get 1080p/5.1 audio. Disney is locked down at 720P. There is even some 4k content on some services.
I only tried Audials once over a year ago. I had a lot of issues with it. Could of just been me. I haven't re-tried
If my wife wasn't addicted Amazon shopping I would drop Prime the moment i get ADS.
Heck I dropped spotify premium because they decided premium users can be served ads on "select" podcast. Just happened the "select" podcast where all the ones I listen to.
I have gone back to the high seas of piracy for my podcast. Im not going to pay money to watch a AD.
Media conpanies need to relize. Its either Ads or Subscription. Not both. You want me to pay for content, fine. But you dont get to double dip. This behavior is driving people back to piracy.
