If you watch any sport in HD you will find it is behind the SD equivalent.

Satellite was always slightly behind terrestrial tv as well.

Diehard fans might go for it but not many more will.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

The new Apple SVOD service may be the next big scripted streaming giant to launch in the UK sometime next year. It will be interesting to see whether Apple TV will be made available also through Virgin Media and Sky.

If so, this is certainly something to look forward to, particularly with the Starz and HBO add-ons, although the latter will probably be pay per view only, given Sky's contract with HBO.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

This app world you keep telling us about sure is going to work out expensive for those of us who like a selection of content across many broadcasters.

Only if we continue to subscribe to the scheduled pay-tv channels. I think you will find that before much longer, cable subscribers will be offered a choice between keeping their existing arrangements or subscribing instead to streaming services only. That would be a cheaper option all in all, with much better choice.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

So with my subscription I currently watch shows and movies from Sky , NBC Universal , ABC , Fox , HBO , Showtime , Disney , Warner Bros , Paramount , Viacom , UKTV , Discovery , Nat Geo plus much much more.

How much is this liable to cost me when I have to subscribe separately considering I currently get all the above for around £30.

Well put, it will end up costing us a fortune if we end up having to sub to each individual suppliers app. I'd rather stay with what we already have.

A quite considerable amount more then you are currently paying but its alright as l am sure OB will pay for all our separate subscriptions.

But that's part of a deal, right? What is the full cost for what you are getting outside of this special offer? That's what you should be comparing with. There will be offers with streaming services as well, as demonstrated with the Sky Netflix arrangements.

Certainly to date my streaming services cost rather less than the digital channels do. As I said, it's only if you take both, as we do now in this house, that it works out more expensive.

You mustn't forget also that not all streaming services would be to your liking, so you wouldn't get them all. Given the amount of material on each service, you could decide, for example, to subscribe to Netflix for a couple of years (or even months) and then go to Amazon for a period. The absence of minimum contract periods would enable a lot of switching to take place, if you wanted to keep bills low.

We have yet to see how sports streaming works out, however. Early days yet.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Your current streaming services aren't really a great comparison as broadcasters remove their content you'll be forced with less and less choice on them. Netflix and Amazon currently offer third party content in just the same way Sky and Virgin do. What happens when Disney, Fox , Comcast etc remove their content and your forced to pay more to get the same content.

Except that when you do like for like comparisons, the streaming services are very good value for money. Now TV provides a good example of the savings that will be achievable. I saved £10 per month just on the Sky Cinema pack with Now TV when I cancelled that part of my subscription with Virgin.

I pay £5 per month for Sky Cinema HD as part of my package. A package that was advertised on Sky's website for a limited time.
