Who commissioned the survey and doubtless input to the questions asked?

Almost half of Brits (48 per cent) have revealed they are planning to watch more TV via streaming over the Christmas holidays, compared to usual, according to research commissioned by adtech company, The Trade Desk.

True. We get power cuts too but does that make electricity an untenable option to power our appliances?

And of course the reason they turned to streaming during lockdown was because there was so little of much interest to watch on ‘normal’ TV.

You didn’t make that link, did you?

The change in consumer behaviour will come because streaming is the method the broadcasters will use. If scheduled TV no longer exists, it can’t be accessed, can it?

It’s not an either/or, it’s "here’s a choice if you don’t want a dish".
True, until the dishes are no longer used for broadcasting services. Sky won’t keep them in use forever.

Every news media company is biased, even the BBC, sad to say. It doesn’t make all their content untrue, however.

Feel free to post your links with a different bias if you wish.

Well no, but if you put all eggs in one basket that reduces the options for receiving any transmissions at all, over terrestrial, satellite, cable or the internet (mobile and fixed line).

Well yes, more hours at home and less production hours meant more people were looking beyond their usual platforms. This isn't a surprise.

Yes, I've referred to it before on the forum.

Which comes first the chicken or the egg?

Forever? 2035? 2045?

It makes their content questionable in the extreme.

Erm, The Trade Desk isn’t a "news media" company, it’s a "selling advertising" company, and if you can’t see that a company that sells software which helps companies buy advertising, producing a survey that states streamers should use more advertising, may be not fully impartial and not on the side of the consumers, I’ve got a bridge for sale you might be interested in…

Is DAZN moving away from Streaming services into the TV world?

Look like DAZN is set to launch an UK Pay TV Channel called DAZN PPV

They obviously know nobody is going to pay £29.99 for a dodgy stream of a Joshua fight.

Wouldn't pay that for any fight even if it was in glorious UHD - could be all over in the first round!

There’s enough of us mugs out there willing to be parted with our cash for a decent PPV. Although on principle I try to keep it to legit fights and not hyped journeymen.
