Zero paid, but . . .
We piggy back off a family members Hulu and Netflix memberships for our very limited viewing - maybe 2-3 hours a week? Roku at $0 for remainder, primarily PBS and Pandora.
And, though I cancelled my 25 years+ Better Homes & Garden magazine subscription last year, they are still downloading it digitally to me. Nowhere near as pleasant as looking at large magazine photos and recipes, but at 'free' I'll take it!

Very little. I'm wary of monthly payments, especially the little ones that add up.

We have Angie's List and I think that's it other than our cable service. We used to get the newspaper but when they added a mandatory charge for on-line access (which we never use), stopped giving credit when you stop delivery on vacations, and then we got a carrier who delivered maybe 50% of the time, we gave up. I work out at a gym next to a grocery store. Now I buy it 4 or 5 days a week when we feel like it.
