There’s nothing wrong with my metacognition. But I think that some are having problems with their superiority complexes.

Well done, you, on picking out a couple of words from the first paragraph of the Wiki article...

Quote:
The Dunning–Kruger effect is a hypothetical cognitive bias stating that people with low ability at a task overestimate their ability.

As described by social psychologists David Dunning and Justin Kruger, the bias results from an internal illusion in people of low ability and from an external misperception in people of high ability; that is, "the miscalibration of the incompetent stems from an error about the self, whereas the miscalibration of the highly competent stems from an error about others".[1] It is related to the cognitive bias of illusory superiority and comes from people's inability to recognize their lack of ability. Without the self-awareness of metacognition, people cannot objectively evaluate their level of competence.

Yes, I thought you’d see the connection. Well done, Hugh.

I’ve said before OB is right in spotting trends my issue was always “to zero” - it’s difficult for market forces alone to drive that kind of radical change in a short timeframe. Viewers are agnostic but the nudge is well under way, investment in internet connectivity continues.

A Freeview service of 15-20 HD channels (if it’s worth selling off more bandwidth) and a satellite/cable offering of a further 40-60 UHD/HD channels supplemented by on-demand/streaming is something I could envisage by 2035. I could see streamers launching IPTV channels to promote content but I don’t see this as meaningfully changing the total.
That makes sense to me apart from "commissioning many new birds." which is obviously "shows". Something else on your mind at the time of typing, jfman?

Satellites get called birds because they fly.

I don't see SES or Eutelsat in a hurry to match the number up there right now for the 2035 to 2050 period, but I'm sure they will continue to provide something. In particular as they can be moved to different markets as the situation evolves.

Maybe these are getting the carrier to handle the billing side of things so you get discount if you get the content bill added to carrier bill.


The carrier can then say they can offer content at discount, content can save on all the billing side of things by passing off to carrier.
