Default How many subscriptions??

I'm thinking of subscribing to a satellite communication service. That got me wondering how many paid information/communication subscriptions or accounts everyone has. It seems they are everywhere and you may not even remember all of them, like S2ki.com. I think I'm probably on the low side. Here are the subscriptions I can think of, and I'm not counting Barbara's. I'm not including utilities like electricity, water, or gas and I'm not including club dues like a real world car club. Also, I'm not including financial services of any kind. I'm trying to keep this limited to communication, information and entertainment.

Magazines:

1. Road and Track
2. Car and Driver
3. On The Water
4. Boating
(I'm not counting the Hagerty magazine as that comes with the insurance and doe not require a separate payment or renewal. I'm also not counting Healey Marque as that comes with the Healey club membership)

Entertainment/News:

5. Cable TV One of the biggest packages with premium channels and on demand.
(I'm not counting Net Flix because I'm on my son's subscription.)

Internet:

6. Fios (ISP)
7. The Hull Truth (the only forum site for which I pay to be a member so that I can sell things)
8. Fish Track (this site provides information about sea conditions. This year I'll probably subscribe to a different site)
9. Navionics (This site turns your phone into a marine GPS. A must-have for mariners)

Communication:

10. Home land line
11. Cell phone service with data plan

I think that's it for me. My number is eleven. Feel free to list yours. You may jog my memory on something I pay for but can't remember.

The heavy hitters.
comcast, phone/internet/cable
Verizon, 5 smartphones. phone warranties.
Netflix, ( almost forgot)

sirius Xm for 4 cars.
MB Mbrace for 4 cars.

One premium credit card ( maybe 2) w/ annual fee
automobile and motor trend, just renewed.
s2ki
AAA
USGA membership
MGA golf handicap

I'd love to add monthly golf dues at the club but I can't get barb to settle into a monogamist relationship with one course.
She likes to swing at all of the courses....

And of course probably the most expensive,
as a parent there doesn't seem to be an opt out option on that one.
