People aren't going to pay for 3-5 disparate video services, especially where 80% of the same content is available on all of them.
Sure about that? HBO, Showtime, Starz, sports packages, etc. Plenty of evidence that they _will_ do exactly that. I hope it doesn't go that way, but there's a reason we ended up with cable in its current form.
Most of the people I know have Netflix + maybe one premium channel add-on subscription.
OTA TV => Cable and Satellite Companies => Streaming services => Service or company that wrangles in all streaming services
Netflix is to metric driven and the creative uniqness of their original content isn’t that great.
Prime Video has a lot of UX issues.
I gave up on Hulu years ago, no idea what it’s like these days.
YouTube is the next social platform, which has a whole new set of issues.
I just want to watch a movie or show every now and then, offline, and with no compression artifacts.
There is no reason why I shouldn’t be able to purchase and download movies or shows.
Google Play Music & TV supports purchase and rental, and download of at least purchased content (possibly rental, too, not sure.)
