It's a balancing game. The commercial PSBs obviously don't offer their linear channels advert-free but they can offer the same content advert-free for a monthly streaming fee.

So they may be keen as it could encourage subscriptions as well as generating more revenue.

Alternatively, the greater supply of advertising time may send rates and viewers down.

Fair enough, but (to me) a change of leader does not automatically mean a change of Government. YMMV.

Re: The future of television

Managed to pick up a Peacock Plus subscription in the US to see this brave new future. 48 linear channels (not including regional variations) and adverts in the streaming content.

So what? We are in a transitional phase.

I really donít see what you are trying to prove about how things may look in 2035, which is still 13 years away.

A lot can happen in 13 years. 13 years ago, Netflix was a mere fledgling streamer. Look at us now!

Thereís no point in continuing to argue about this. Weíll all see soon enough who is right and who is wrong. Iíve said what I think will happen and youíve said what you think. Thatís fine. Letís see what happens.

With no electricity streaming or terrestrial will be academic in 2035.

Maybe live open air theatre will make a comeback, here's hoping.

Are we?

Youíre the only one who opines on and on about this being a journey towards less choice and diversity in how content is delivered. My experience of streaming services in Turkey, the Middle East/North Africa and now the USA has ďstreamersĒ all owned my international conglomerates all broadcasting as they do now and supplementing this with on demand offerings. Something NTL did in 2002.

Several posts removed. To quote a now deleted post, give it a rest with the digs.
