That can be good for the end user--or at least that's my hope at any rate. :)

@Mpouraryan it is already getting overwhelming and there are even more companies trying to get in on the game.

In my opinion, the endgame is something that only a few stations do right now. Allow us to download their app (free or paid) and watch their content in real-time or at a later date. The one that comes to mind is The CW.

Re: OTT and Pay TV
The price of traditional TV does continue to be an issue (the main driver?) of people cutting the cord.

Basic game theory. Price cartels are hard to maintain because the incentive to cheat is strong, and the more players who join the cartel the harder to maintain it gets.

Re: The path is unpredictable, but the endpoint is describable
I have been in the midst of checking out DirectTV NOw--the idea of being able to watch it from anywhere is pretty good--but when I, for instance, also can see either SkyNews or Al Jazeera "on Demand", YouTube Red--it will be interesting--and now I'm seeing Facebook wanting to get into the act w/a budget for scripted TV Shows...fun times!!!

@Joe Stanganelli Isn't that what those packages do regardless?

With OTT, people have choice. If a provider tries to jack up prices, people can leave. No contracts, no lock-in. It's great.
