I am the opposite. I like everything having its own place (probably habit). Apple TV+ for example seems like a mess to me, just thrown into everything else that you have to pay for by movie / episode.

i got the trial to try it out but I’ll probably cancel it. Too expensive. 15 bucks is more than I pay for Spotify, Netflix & Hulu/Disney+ & YouTube Premium combined

How do you get all of those services combined for under $15?

…the originals (not HBO, but HBO Max originals) suck!
Originals:
[LIST=1]
* Elmo Late Show - good for kids, not adults.
* Legendary drag queen-fest, excuse me while I vomit in the corner.

Regarding #1, don't watch it. Considering at the end of your post you highlight Disney+ as superior, given that a large chunk of its content is 'for kids', you should be more than capable of this.

As for #2, congratulations at your performative outrage. If diversity sickens you so much, this Apple support article entitled 'Move and hide apps on your Apple TV ('https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT200126')' should help you delete the HBO Max app and you can continue watching the content library you previously enjoyed.

Too many streaming services nowadays plus HBO GO vs HBO NOW vs HBO MAX.. it's like they can't make up their mind. Why not abolish all and simply call it HBO+...

Again the rest of the world just has to wait longer or forever to get a new service that is out exclusively for the USA. You even need a USA based credit card to register. So VPN wont help you get it. Well, i guess i’ll just enjoy Netflix then ???
i always buy a digital iTunes gift card on Walmart.com and then subscribe via the App Store. However Hulu even works with my German credit card
