How many different subscriptions are we going to need to watch what we want to watch soon, with everyone and their son launching their own service.
More so when Disney+ launches and maybe the new HBO/Warner service. Something or at least one of the streaming services will give at some point.
Whilst Netflix is undoubtedly the most popular streaming service right now, it has debt and doesn’t have a plan B. Amazon, Disney, BBC/ITV, Sky/Comcast have near to if not guaranteed revenue which can be invested wisely.
I look forward to see what BritBox will offer, but it seems to be more archive than killer content. If ITV are the bigger stakeholder here, they’ve got more to gain from it. Maybe some first run shows before an ITV transmission in the future perhaps?
