OK thanks for confirming , yes I knew they'd pulled back on the original scripted content. I mainly use my YouTube Premium sub for the YouTube music side and the ability to watch YouTube video content without the barrage of adverts its also handy to be able to download for travel.

I find it better to look at the On Demand offering rather than the live tv part of the site.

The two organisations, or their offshoots, have made shows for others for a while. The recent original dramas on UKTV's Alibi for example. Only Pay TV customers will see those.

I wouldn't have expected you to say anything else, Old Boy.

Interesting that Sky is pulling out of Spain. I suspect that Disney's launch of Disney + and the inevitable removal of Disney-owned content from Sky Spain's streaming service was largely to account for this, as I don't believe Sky Spain produced any significant Spanish content itself.

I think you might be right about the Spain issue, but I was surprised Sky were pulling out. Spain is not renowned for its TV content, so I thought they would make a killing there. Clearly not.

Despite declines in viewership, linear television still remains the dominant form of TV viewing for consumers across the US, UK and other major economies, according to Omdia.

Linear TV accounted for 63 per cent of television viewing in the US in 2019, compared to 16 per cent for long-form viewing and 12 per cent for PVR time-shifted television, as reported by the Omdia Cross-Platform Television Viewing Time Report – 2020.

Linear TVs share of television viewing declined from 67 per cent in 2018. Similar trends occurred in most of the other countries tracked by the report. The report covering television viewership trends in the US, Australia, the Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Germany, France and the UK.

The linear viewing figures are still holding up well so far against the competition. The big question is whether this trend will accelerate, decline or continue in a fairly straight line.

In the meantime, Mr K I am sure would be interested in a new archive tv streaming service which will air a lot of old ABC TV programmes for the first time since originally shown, although I dare say he wouldn't actually part with any money to get it!

Hello, Mr K, you there?

You can believe all you want OB but believing about something does not ordinarily mean that what you believe in will take place.

Do l sense a backtracking of what you originally believed would happen.
