Note the plurality for "free"
Competitive pressure will erode any add-on fee, however that is structured, down to the level of being a profitless administrative nuisance. So I'm not at all sure that "free" is best, but I think it's inevitable, and if it's inevitable, we might as well go there ASAP.

Option 2?
I'm not sure I understand.  If it's free, wouldn't it be adding value to the OTT service instead of the Pay TV service?  Or am I missing something?

Secret Freemium Model would be a good name for, well, not a band, but an album.

I'm pretty sure that one will go unused for a long time... startup bands don't frequent this board (my guess).

You don't have bother with a whole band, you can create a virtual band (or orchestra or whatever) https://www.youtube.com/user/symphony It'll be great! :D

Re: Note the plurality for "free"
Free would be great but because we live in a capitalist society and most companies focuses 90% on generating revenue, the free option may not be realized or will come with lots of restrictions.

Freemium is probably a closer reality. But we can hope can't we.

Here is an article on streaming with OTT.

Re: Note the plurality for "free"
I agree. I love free stuff, who doesn't? But I don't know if it's exactly realistic. It would be great if free was an actul option, but sadly I don't think businesses would work like that..
