Competitors with large amounts of cash will make that a worse problem simply because it raises the amount of cash Netflix needs to spend to stay relevant.

Netflix needs to be very careful here. They are in the same position Blockbuster Video was in the 90s (Blockbuster was the largest investor in Hollywood). Look what happened to them. They didn't move with the times, and were ultimately bankrupted by Netflix and Amazon. Blockbuster were in that position about 10-15 years after they started. Netflix was in that position about 10-15 years after it started.

I don't think iPlayer is going anywhere. Yes, iPlayer Radio did, but I don't think the BBC have found a way of streaming their radio online they are entirely happy with yet, and I think iPlayer Radio was just one of their attempts. A good one, from what I remember, but they wanted more info than it was designed to give.
I agree with you Stuart, Netflix is in a precarious position and they will now have to invest heavily in creating their own content just to keep their customer base.
With past, present and future content they have relied upon being pulled from them them by the new streamers coming online.

While I am pleased that the UHD stuff is now coming up on VM Amazon searches, I am annoyed that searches for the BBC i-Player are not coming up. Does anyone know why?

Nothing wrong with the streaming. I just want to know why Virgin do not appear to be linking iPlayer programmes to their search engine.

Sky News is launching a new pop-up channel dedicated to Brexit-free news.

Sky News Brexit-Free will go on air tomorrow on Sky channel 523, and it will be live from 5pm to 10pm Monday to Friday. It will also be streamed on YouTube.

Sky News will continue to cover all angles of Brexit in detail on its main channel, as well as break big stories from the UK and around the world.

A study released this summer found that a third of people are avoiding the news entirely.

More than 70% of them blamed Brexit, saying they were too frustrated over the political debate surrounding it.

Almost 60% said the news was having a negative impact on their mood, and 40% felt they felt powerless to influence events.

John Ryley, the head of Sky News, said: "Sky News Brexit-Free is a bold approach but listening to public opinion over the past weeks and months, it's something we know our viewers will find valuable.

This is quite amusing to me considering how anti brexit sky news is.
