I've never used or seen Sky Q, do you know of any good youtube vids that highlight its capabilities?

I've always wanted true intelligent tv and while Netflix is a step in that direction, it still falls way short and it seems Sky's UI may be better.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

A streaming service may start where you get paid for watching it!

To entice people to watch the service, Watch Back would offer viewers points that they could then redeem for gift certificates.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

'British Netflix' may fail competition checks.

https://www.theguardian.com/media/20...tion-sky-chief

Quote:
Sky has warned that plans by the BBC, ITV and Channel 4 to build a British Netflix could fall foul of the competition regulator.
Quote:
Stephen van Rooyen, chief executive of UK and Ireland operations at the pay-TV company, said public service broadcasters still accounted for the lion’s share of TV viewing and that any new venture would likely be investigated by the Competition and Markets Authority.
Quote:
Despite the Sky warning, the idea of a British Netflix has received regulatory backing. On Wednesday, Sharon White, head of the media regulator Ofcom, again urged the UK’s PSBs to get together and build a British Netflix.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

YouTube Premium appears to have lost its way. Shame, I was wondering whether to subscribe so I could also get the music videos without advertisements. I will need to see how this plays out before parting with any subscription money!

https://www.rapidtvnews.com/20181129...#axzz5YEWc3a3P

Online video giant YouTube is reportedly planning to shift from developing top-tier scripted original content for its premium service.

According to unnamed sources, the Google-owned platform is expected to scale back its original content production starting in 2020. At the same time, it will make all future originals free to all users, not just subscribers to YouTube Premium.

YouTube is still developing the second seasons of the Karate Kid reboot Cobra Kai and Impulse, and just ordered pilots for The Edge of Seventeen and Dark Cargo, so its content business isn’t going away completely; but sources told The Hollywood Reporter that the YouTube Originals team is facing "a serious budget reduction."

"Other platforms have had traction with scripted, but they don't feel like there's an opening for them," one source said.

"If you look at our originals over the last few years, our main goal was to drive subscribers to YouTube Premium," said chief business officer Robert Kyncl. "But through experimentation, we've also learned that we can make a lot of the projects work incredibly well when we make them available free to users."

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Netflix Canada to introduce highest price increase to date as competition in the North American streaming market heats up.


https://business.financialpost.com/t...petition-rises

Wonder if we'll see a price rise in the UK once Disney launch their streaming service. Things could get expensive.
