Same here. I use my auntie’s Netflix and I pay for Prime Video and Now TV and currently considering DisneyLife, so I can get ready for Disney+.

Not the type of financial decision which suggest they are on the wane anytime soon.

A monumental investment in the UK. Somewhat predictable for such a huge company to secure it’s own position in the content market for years to come.

Not to want to encourage OB especially but they can distribute their content as effectively over IP as they can by satellite.

Whatever the future of broadcast TV, I think it's obvious to Sky that the days when they could more or less dictate the way the pay-TV market operates, by controlling the only nationwide distribution platform as well as rights to all the premium content, are over. If they're going to survive in a fragmented landscape with many distribution platforms and premium content spread thinly across them, then they need to find other ways of being distinctive. If they can produce quality content, that will help them no end.

That decision does not necessarily have anything to do with linear TV services.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

The Palace games looks good here to even though only HD.

The Burnley game is also in HDR on some devices.

l agree with much of what you say as for several years Sky has been adapting their strategy in a changing marketplace with far more competition now then there was then and part of that strategy is less reliance on sport and more diversification in producing high quality content.

Of course the untimely demise of linear isn’t the only um, bold, prediction on the forum. He has, in my view mistakenly, consistently underestimated the ability of the incumbents in the pay tv market to react. In the past consistently the mantra was about how companies are going to come in and steamroller over the top.

When in practice many of us have said that the incumbents, with their huge existing revenues, profits and customer base, are well placed to adapt to the future regardless of how that looks.
