Seasons Watch List

For many, the desire to watch all of the latest shows on streaming channels is complicated by the expense of multiple subscriptions. It seems like every month one or more of the channels I subscribe to is raising their price or instituting advertising that I have to pay to opt out of. The smartest strategy to cope with this is to only have active subscriptions to the channels you're going to be watching during a given period. With channels renewing on different days and some programs being released once a week vs. others being dropped all at once, it can be difficult to map out a strategy that makes sense, but as we used to say in the olden days, there's an app for that.

Seasons, released in April 2024 walks you through a setup process that has you adding shows from your various watchlists, then adding your channel subscriptions along with their cost and renewal dates. It will tell you how much you are spending per day for your current subscriptions. It will also calculate for you when you should unsubscribe and resubscribe from various channels to maximize your entertainment dollar. You can add both current and upcoming shows as well as movies. Unfortunately, it does not import watchlists, so you will have to add everything manually. On the flip side, you don't have to use other apps to add shows and Seasons has its own recommendation algorithm based on your interests and user ratings.

Currently, Seasons has a lifetime license available for $3.99 on the app store.
