@chaitanya I try to go to origin/network sites. For comedy central (ca) shows I visit much.com, or I visit the personal site of a YouTube creator, instead of the multiple reposts of the same video. I hope that the advert $ for content on their sites gets closer to the artists.
They also make most of them available to watch on YT here:

@chaitanya Anything that doesn't require running proprietary software or identifying myself.
(I have some ideas for making such platforms)
@chaitanya TPB - I'd never even heard of the second choice there actually.
Not technically 'streaming' as such, but if you tell bittorrent to d/l the S01E01 first and E02 2nd and so on, it becomes one in practice.
@chaitanya In reality we flit between streaming services depending on what they offer at the time. We’re Plowright through Disney+ at the minute, but also watch iPlayer and use Plex for downloaded stuff.
@chaitanya Oh, and Apple TV+ - but only because it’s bundled in with other Apple stuff that I pay for.
Mostly via Plex, but content from all the sources above plus Peacock/NBC, CBSAllAccess for Star Trek Discovery, and HBO Max. Plus a bunch of channels that aren't part of any consistent online service yet.
