Popular doesn't equal profit. The free newspapers handed out in train stations are popular. Ask the public to spend 50p and see who goes out their way to buy it.

I don't know why you insist on personalising it that "I prefer the status quo. I'm an utter irrelevance and macroeconomic level. I'm asking you to demonstrate how the market substantially shifts and you cannot.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Anyway back to Netlix and a interesting article here about them.

https://www.wired.co.uk/article/netf...ion-fatigue-uk

Quote:
Britain has become a nation of streamers. The proportion of UK households with a subscription to the four most popular streaming services – Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Now TV and Disney Life – increased by nearly 10 per cent in the last year. Nearly half of British households (47 per cent) now have a streaming account, according to new data from the communications regulator.
Quote:
“The people who subscribe to Netflix are also very likely to also have pay TV.
Quote:
However, with the number of subscriptions climbing, are we likely to see subscription fatigue? Research by MUSO, an anti-piracy data consultancy, has found that eight in ten European consumers believe they’re already paying too much for content streaming,
Quote:
As the world's biggest subscription service, Netflix has the most to lose from the impending stampede of new competitors.
Quote:
However, we’re getting close to the subscription ceiling.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

The subscription ceiling is quite apt to be honest. With economic data today indicating we are very likely heading towards a technical recession how well/badly does the whole market hold up?

In 2008 pay-tv did well, arguably benefitting from lower cost ADSL broadband from LLU operators moving in (the “whole package” was coming down in price for many).

There’s no windfall in waiting now.

Do people ditch their bread and butter premium Sky subscription with premier league football or do they ditch their nice little add on of Friends box sets?

My watching habits are, even though i have a V6 99.99% of my viewing is done via streaming, on Kodi or Amazon Prime.
Whereas I have 2 V6 boxes, I rarely watch things live. Preferring to watch when I want to - sounds like I am an obvious target for streaming - however I have never watched a streamed program in my life.

You should try it some time, I just watched a series called 'The Boys' on Amazon Prime in only 2 days, imagine having to wait 10 weeks to watch all that, also great not having to skip commercials.

Well, no, you are not. You could maintain a dignified silence.

I don't know what 'misinformation' you are referring to. If you are saying that the decline in viewing traditional channels and the increase in numbers subscribing to VOD services is incorrect, please say so. And if you can support your statements with links proving that to be wrong, please do so.

As I see it, you just disagree with everything that shows the way this is all going without providing a shred of evidence to support your views.

We all get that you want things to stay the same. But you are completely incapable of recognising the evidence that shows otherwise.

Prove me wrong, if you can..

Maybe you should try it, to see how easy and convenient it is.
