Re: Impressive..
Do you think the "Streaming bundle services" offered with TVs by retailers will cut into this share as many of the bundles are opting for players other than Netflix?

Re: Averages
I am with you @mhhf1ve that as long as the "niche" is there, people will come--and it will monetize.   Look at the "stars" that have evolved on YouTube et. al--my hat's off to them!!!

Re: Averages
Well, not just gaming, though. Sure, gaming seems to be a highly valuable form of content now, but viral videos unrelated to gaming have also accumulated a surprising amount of revenue. The woman with the Chewbacca mask just got her kids college tuition paid for. Maybe it's not possible to create another Seinfeld or Friends sitcom, but content wealth is still being created in all kinds of new ways.

Re: Averages
What you're underscoring is how "gaming" seems to be where the money is.     That's all well and good--I can't help but be amazed as the breath of offerings that is free and available on Prime/etc.  How we sustain it is the challenge.

> "what is amazing how the content is being Devalued..."

Hmm. Some content is reaching the highest values ever, though. Distribution is relatively cheap, so it's almost free nowadays to spread a viral "Chewbacca mask" video. I suppose it depends on how content is "valued" in the first place, but there are many kinds of content that are have surprisingly high valuations (eg. Twitch videos, Let's Play videos, etc)

..what is amazing how the content is being Devalued--and the challenge for all content creators (including myself w/what is being done at @DailyOutsider) to monetize the content in as righteous way as possible.

Impressive..
I think the most impressive part about this Netflix dominance.. is that DRM must also be included on every device that Netflix runs on... so this also means that just about every device that can play video has some DRM capability, too. That might not be surprising for a powerful device like an Xbox or AppleTV, but a more obscure "smart TV" might not have that much extra built into it. So the spread of Netflix is also a signal that devices are in general trying to build in security software.

Re: Market share across devices
@Michelle, my guess would have been an even higher number, but I guess the crop of new streaming services are cutting into this percentage a bit.
