Exactly as many use the streaming services as a nice add on to their main linear TV viewing.

Many do, and many don't, and the trend is obvious if you look for it.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

You still haven’t demonstrated this, across seven different threads, despite being invited to do so on many different occasions.

Linear television continues to be hugely popular, in addition to time shifting, on demand and yes even streaming. There’s nothing to support the vast majority wanting to lose all this flexibility.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Exactly. Let's enjoy a bit of each that modern media makes available. Even the big advocate of streaming has said before he still records linear channels both onto his V6 (does he have 2 now?) and another recorder as well

You are arguing over nothing. Do you seriously not believe that streaming is becoming increasingly popular?

I have never, ever said that scheduled TV channels are not popular at the moment, of course they are. But you don't seem to be able to envision what will happen in the future, when the younger generation now will be in their 50s and 60s in the coming decades.

Scheduled TV will become regarded as old fashioned and inflexible, and ridden with adverts and junk programmes that few want to see. It's just a matter of time, which is the only thing that will prove my point to the tech deniers on here.

Funnily enough, my V6 is now listing more bookmarked programmes on Netflix than ever before. The number of recordings I am making is decreasing. This is not a conscious decision, just the result of having fewer 'must see' programmes on the EPG.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Scheduled TV has been old fashioned and inflexible since the invention of the VCR and subsequently the DVR. It’s still here.
