Re: Could Be Good Option
2Ariella, Pretty sure Hulu is just US. I never got to this yesterday, but now YouTube is pondering a skinny bundle as well.

Re: Big change for content guys
@afwriter interesting point. Do you envision how the restructuring would take shape?

Re: Big change for content guys
Seems as likely to me that the proliferation of distribution channels will need to new revenue opportunities for content owners. But it will also be more work for them to keep track of it all.

Re: Big change for content guys

@mslibey,



I agree, but I also think that there will be a point where content owners realize they are being spread too thin, either through a lack of revenue or the difficulty of production and they will eventually restructure.

Big change for content guys
The number of OTT services means content owners are really spreading their worth around, and that means that the value of content by itself will start to get diluted. For programmers that have made gobs of money for years raking in ad dollars plus guaranteed subscription licensing fees, it's going to be a rude awakening when those fees fracture across more and more distribution channels.

Re: A la Carte
@afwriter I'm waiting for the same. It's nice everyone wants to offer a streaming option for content, but it forces viewers to subscribe to multiple services to get the few channels they really want. That's a hassle.

Just buy a Sling Media SlingBox and save yourself the trouble. Or do those digital cable antennas you see at Kmart and Walmart not work?

A la Carte
I am still waiting for a someone to roll out a true a la carte option.  I am ok without every other channel but I miss AMC and and FX; and let me DVR shows to watch an hour later, not the next day.  Am I being too greedy now?

Re: Could Be Good Option
I'm sure this is one of the lamer cord-cutter laments, but my attenae won't pick up ABC so I always feel left out during the Oscars.

If Disney provides a live content option, I'd be rather pleased!
