Are there too many streaming services?

     With the rise of Disney+ I’ve been inclined to ask this question, are there too many streaming services? And would it be better if there were just a monopoly of streaming? I will try to answer that to the best of my ability. Though I believe we all know the answer.

     According to Wikipedia there are over 200 streaming services in the United States, and for the sake of convenience I ́ll only do research on 10 of the big ones. This will include: Netflix, Hulu, Prime Video, all of the HBO services, Disney+, Crunchyroll, Funimation, Apple TV+, YouTube TV, and Sony Crackle (Crackle). You might realize you may never heard of any of these, and you may of heard of all of them but I am going to go into depth on all of these services to see if there should only be one huge massive company to control them all.
