Re: The future of television

That is more likely the US version which is quite different and (as usual for US) much bigger than the UK offering.

Probably true, but besides the point.

The notable fact here is that a major film and TV studio is using platforms designed for on-demand TV to launch *scheduled* broadcast services. This demonstrates the point many of us have been making here for years, namely that these services are seen as convenient for consumers and cost-effective for providers.

Re: The future of television

The older generation are now taking to the streaming habit in greater numbers, according to Ofcom.

[EXTRACT]

The UK regulator Ofcom says it has seen a steep decline in mass audience moments with fewer numbers tuning into the traditional linear channels.

According to today’s Media Nations Report, there is for the first-time evidence of a significant decline in broadcast TV viewing among older audiences. Over-64s watched 8% less broadcast TV in 2022 than in 2021 and viewing was 6% lower than in 2019 (the last pre-pandemic year).

The TV set remains the most-used device for watching video content, accounting for 82% of total video viewing, with live broadcast TV making up the largest proportion of this time.
Phew, I was almost worried.
