For example, Disney + looks like being good for families, but people in my household (Old Boy and Old Girl) will not subscribe because there are no children living in our house any more. We would perhaps be interested in the Hulu strand if it comes to the UK, provided we could get that on a standalone basis and the content warranted it.

Those who are saying that the new arrangements will be more expensive are ignoring the fact that people will only subscribe to those services that they want at that time. People will also shift between services from time to time as they won't be tied to contracts.
Or perhaps your ignoring the fact it's just you and your wife living in the house and not a large family.

You also don't watch Sport which is another key factor.

Of course OB thinks the view of the world revolves around his bubble of thinking.

If I still had my kids living with me, of course I would subscribe to Disney +. I was just demonstrating how people would subscribe according to their needs.

As far as sport is concerned, that is always going to be at a premium!

It look like Star Wars is coming back to Sky Cinema from September 2nd on Virgin Channel 402 (Sky Cinema Select HD) [Source TiVo].
Even if it had still been owned by WB, WB are another company preparing to launch their own streaming service.

Edit A&T already have their own streaming platform out after taking over Direct tv.

Look like Sky Two and Real Lives will be axe.

Sky Two > Sky Comedy
Real Lives > Sky Crime (Viewers will not see anything new bar the name of channel)
Apparently, the VM stance on this is "no comment" and the Sky stance is "Yes, they'll be coming to VM".

Glad that you now accept the, often stated, economic reality that even if streamers bought major sports rights the consumer wouldn't benefit from any low cost streaming options.

I do think that it may turn out to be less expensive, depending on which company wins the rights. I think Amazon would provide a good deal for its subscribers.

You obviously must think Amazon are some charity who are going to provide a cheap as chips subscription.

Mind you seeing they won't bid for it in the first place that joins the other way out predictions you have repeatedly made.

Amazon are getting expensive as of late tbh i don't think it will be cheaper under them.
In the very unlikely event Amazon did win rights we'd probably be talking same level of cost as Nowtv sports passes, and no doubt Amazon will want you to have prime on top of that so that's a further £79per year.
However it's all ifs, buts, what ifs at the moment.

Don't be daft, Den, I'm not predicting anything. I'm just saying that there may be a discounted rate from Amazon to encourage more spending in other parts of the business. As a retailer, they can do this in a way that other streamers cannot..

You need to take off the blinkers, jfman. Your vision is not the only vision.
