So I had finally decided to take a look at CraveTV, the streaming service that offers television programs and documentaries online and thought i’d give you my first thoughts on it.

Although I like having access to some concerts, music documentaries and the “Classic Albums” and “Behind The Music” television programs, it still feels like more can be done with the service.

At $7.99 it is quite affordable but unlike Shomi and Netflix, it only has a few feature films. And although I am tempted to remain subscribed for the extensive Monty Python, Absolutely Fabulous and Star Trek television program libraries, I don’t think I will remain on this service for long.

Like Netflix, there is just too little to watch on the service and i’ve already watched what I really wanted to within a month. The rest I already have on DVD or blu-ray.

CraveTV also would have held my attention longer if it wasn’t missing the Mythbusters episodes from 2011 and on. I’ve already watched the Seasons 5,6 and 7 episodes they have on Discovery Science and I get that channel for three bucks a month.

Perhaps I will rejoin in November and December to avoid the Christmas programming but I think all of the streaming services will need to add more television episodes, feature films and European releases to keep me subscribed for a longer period than three months.
