Re: unsure
Very true! On social media Netflix definitely is dominating! Not only is their content great and gives a ton of choices, but it's prices are awesome!

Re: unsure
@Afwriter that's true. Netflix still appears to be the market leader for this area. It makes sense to go into mobile device viewing giving the stats that in the US at least more than 50% of viewing is done on mobile, so PCs no longer dominate.

Re: unsure
Netflix is contemplating cutting down their original programming for mobile friendly viewing too. I'm not sure how well it will work out, but Netflix has pretty much dominated in terms of media trends as of late.

Re: unsure
@Ariella - you make a great point in that there is something to be said for watching an event "live" and knowing everyone else is participating at the same time, which is where traditional broadcast TV still has some cache.  Obviously you can live stream events to your device, but it doesn't have that "gathered around the TV" appeal.

Re: TV Shows In a Snap
This does not surprise me at all. However, I think the type of content people will find on Snap is going to be different. It's certainly not going to be long-form stuff, as the platform seems to appeal to those who want quick takes.

Re: unsure
I echo what @Adi has noted--although what I just picked during my daily review is giving me a broader moment of pause about whether choice will persist or not:

Why 2017 Will Be A Huge Year For Telecom And Media Mergers


The new FCC chairman will likely usher in a noticeably more "capitalistic" agenda, as one expert puts it.

Re: unsure
@Adi Thanks fo rthe link. 3.3% is a very modest rate of growth, but it is good news. I have to say I'm a bit surprised in light of the fact that even libraries have started to make ebooks available. At my own, they even lend out devices preloaded with popular books. I'm not sure about the licensing limits on the ebooks in that case. Once a library owns a paper book, it can lend it out with no limits, but electronic ones seem to have some restricion if only to prevent individual purchasers from distributing the content at no cost to others.

Ariella - The long term trend does seem that way, but you never know. Books might be coming back -- take a look at these numbers from the US.

Re: unsure
@Adi It all seems to translate into more watching of screens - whether the traditional or new kind. There is something sad about that in a Fahrenheit 451 way.

Re: unsure
Ariella - I think we'll see a bit of this kind of ping-pong between OTT and traditional TV audiences in coming years. My sense is that OTT will change the way coming generations consume video, in terms of the mix of long-short, drama-social-reality-whatever, full games-highlights etc. etc. -- but they'll still watch a lot of video on the TV and much of it will be via traditional channels.
