And apart from some smaller sports rights there is diddly squat chance of the streaming companies ever bidding for the major UK football rights as you and OB will find out in due time.

The status quo isn't newsworthy, there simply aren't numerous links for him to provide. He's no more likely to find links to articles about the continuity of linear tv than he would find articles about whether we will still have a piped water supply in x years time.

Assumptions based on extrapolating the current growth curve of streaming services isn't entirely accurate. Keep extrapolating the current curve and you'll get to a point where there are more people watching streaming services than there are people in the world. At some point, the gradient of the curve will change, flatten out, maybe go into decline. That's the unknown factor, how long is the current trend sustainable, It could be years, months, weeks even. Articles based on current trends are just that, and trends change.

One opinion is no more correct than another, they are only opinions.

I have not left 'a trail of false predictions'. Again, you come out with this stuff with no justification, and so credibility is certainly at issue when you do this.

The only prediction that went wrong for me was the famous Sky Atlantic issue, but that was based on an article that turned out not to be correct in the end.

Of course, you can disagree with me or whomever you like, but please give us a justification for your view so you are not constantly accused of believing that nothing will ever change.

I welcome a good debate, but constant responses of 'It will never happen, take your rose tinted glasses off' can be a bit wearing.

That is true to an extent, but if you are going to rubbish someone else's post, one can at least provide an explanation.

Whether extrapolation is really an issue with the debate about whether Amazon will go for the Premiership rights is debateable. We still don't know why Den takes the view he does, but we have provided plenty of links to indicate that this is precisely what will happen, either this time round or next.

You might want to get some seasoning in for that straw hat of yours.
I love a good debate and difference of opinions.

Not sports related something that is very interesting i think someone reported in the coming soon thread that Comcast are interested in buying SKY,
if this happens comcast i think will give SKYgo a massive overhaul and bring it inline with Comcasts own streaming service for customers xfinity (not the same channels before den throws his slippers at the cat :p ) also there is a strong chance that they will work with their partners to bring HULU to the UK.
HULU have already stated they are aiming to have HULU in the UK by the end of 2020, interesting times ahead.

On the face of it at least, this could be good for us, the consumers. If so, let's hope this actually happens.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Personal opinion but I can't see Amazon wanting to pay in excess of the £1.4 billion a season Sky currently pays.

I think the proof of that specific issue will enfold as we become aware of the actual bidders. Debating the situation won't actually change, or even influence what happens. I doubt that links really give an indication of "precisely" what will happen, the passage of time between now and then gives scope for a change of mind / policy.

At the moment, looking at this debate from the outside, it just seems to be a case of stating "oh yes they will" or "oh no they won't" across several threads. The panto season is alive and well on CF.

But they are already working on a streaming service.

Nobody knows what precisely will happen. All these posts are speculative, I thought that was as good as read.

I am not an insider, and when I say I believe something will change, it's based on material that I read and sounds credible.

If we took off everything that was not speculation, the 'Coming Soon' thread would not exist!
