Maybe so, but people like me tend only to watch the so-called 'Netflix Originals' so that won't devalue my viewing experience.

Sports streaming will be a nightmare for the consumer.

Also OB always says 'in the future' - which of course either happens or it is still to happen so he is never wrong

Just in case you really hadn't noticed, 2022 isn't here yet.

I have been partially correct in that Amazon did go for the least attractive, cheapest premiership offer last time around, but that can be regarded as the first toe in the water for them. Given that superfast broadband should be available in most of the country within the time frame up to 2022, there is nothing that will stop this happening, in my view.

Now, now, Raider, you know that's not true!

As far as the premiership rights are concerned, I have always talked about the 2018 and 2022 bids.

The linear TV opinion I first expressed in 2015, so I am sure your calculation of the forecast period will be the same as mine. Look at the posts for yourself and you will see that I am right. I would also repeat that in this last year, the BBC has stated that it is planning for the demise of its scheduled channels during the period following the next licence review, so my previous lone voice now finds itself in good company.

Many view a mix of both so I'm sure for some it will devalue their offering.

How do you know for sure that will happen? What if they have an agreement to show what they already are showing?

Because Fox and Disney have already announced they will.

Absolutely no doubt about it MM as up to now Netflix have had it nice and easy for a few years in the streaming market but their big test is yet to come.

That is why it has never taken off as apart from a few smaller sporting rights the big events remain the domain of the big TV players and will do far into the future.

You've said that for a long time Den but you still haven't provided proof. You really need to refresh your memory by looking at my old posts, because you appear to be very confused about what I have been saying consistently over a few years now.

Give it a chance, Den, you're too quick to dismiss something, that, lets be honest, is in it's infancy!

Thank you MM for your advice but this is a forum at the end of the day and as we know members debate and disagree on a good many issues as we all know and if it wasn't me l am pretty sure it would be someone else who would come along and disagree with other members.
