And I don't know, say each one may require you to have some form of box to connect to your TV, provide a 'guide' to help you work out what's available, and may give you easy to use automatic playlists of programmes to watch.

There are times when we just don’t want to make decisions. A Friday evening after a long work week. A fridge full of food but nothing jumps out. A family movie night where no one can agree. We’ve all been there.

Sometimes you just want to open Netflix and dive right into a new story. That’s why we’ve created Play Something, an exciting new way to kick back and watch.
Hang on, that seems familiar

Just like BBC Three, perhaps a return to linear TV will be the future for all streamers.

Its almost certain. Weve now had former DAZN executives in the media admitting the end users will ultimately pay more for less in the future.

Or possibly they will vote with their feet and cancel.

I think we may be seeing the true colours of streamers - start with a low monthly cost, attract customers, put the price up hoping most will have bought into it and stay.

End of the day, most streamers are new to the game - at least you know what you get from linear channel providers.

The way of most start up companies low prices to get a market share . Then hope customers will not bother to cancel , as happens everyday with many subscriptions to many people !

Known as the drug dealer method. Free, then a low price once they're addicted then keep on upping it till the revenue is maximised.

And they have 65% worldwide market share I think I read somewhere a few years back. The 2nd place only had 15-20% to my recollection and there was no significant 3rd, it was all minor player after that.

But this is WAY off topic.

I wonder if Pluto TV will crash with never seen before demand tonight for Star Trek Discovery S4?
