If Hulu is anything to go by clearly people are more price sensitive being that over three quarters subscribe to the cheaper ad supported version. Comcast have said their ad supported service will have 3-5 mins per hour which personally I find acceptable and would gladly accept free rathe than pay.

Yes, but maybe the majority of those three quarters would not have subscribed had they had to pay a subscription.

Nevertheless, the lower subscription charge would have increased inclusivity.

It clearly shows people will tolerate ads for a lower monthly cost and the provider can still make as much if not more from these subscribers.

In many instances it would allow subscribers to take two services for what they'd normally pay for one ad free.

No, it shows that some people tolerate ads.

I'm not sure why you are arguing about this. The streamers would be able to satisfy both camps by giving a choice. What's wrong with that?

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

If your V6 fails for whatever reason and you have Netflix and Amazon apps active on it how would you sign out of your accounts on that box especially if the engineer replaces the box. Can you sign out of a VM device from The Netflix website?

One way to sign out is to change the password, if you can't do it another way.

Edit
You can sign out of all devices from the Netflix site.

Just change the password and that should sign out on all devices. However the boxes would be erasedand repaired so no one should be able to access your account.

What I said was that Netflix were saying they would never include advertisements on their service.

Since then, the CEO has softened his stance, which some think means that commercials on the streamer are inevitable.

All I am saying is that if they do come (which is still speculation), I would have thought that there would be a subscription option that excluded adverts.

For most web sites / services your signed in/out status is actually held in a cookie on the local machine. New machine would not have the cookie on it until you log back into the site.

For example I can be logged into CF on my main machine but if I browse the site on the laptop I'm not signed in but am shown as on the site.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

A new subscription on demand service from A+E Network is now available in the UK. It will be interesting to see if Virgin takes this up, but it's not for me.
