Re: I'm surprised churn isn't higher?
Lol! It would be nice to be able to custom-select content for some of package options. For example, instead of paying an extra $15/month to get whichever package includes SciFi & BBC America, along with whatever other channels are bundled in, and then another upgrade for FX & History channel and 5 different Discovery channels (I'm just choosing random channels, I'm not sure what's currently bundled together!) - pay $15/month for my choice of 5 channels, $25 for 15, etc. More "a la carte" so to speak.

Re: Content Provider Apps
I agree! (I'm cheap & have lousy eyesight, so one cost-saved was buying the non-HD versions of the shows!)

What kind of customization do you think will be added to video services? I'm not sure how many more OTT apps I can manage.

I think we're going to see in the coming years more video services that allow customers customized options. Everyone has different preferences in terms of video entertainment, and providers would do well to enable customers to get exactly what they want.

Re: Content Provider Apps
When I first went OTT only I bought season passes from Amazon, that is probably what I will do in the future, it would just be nice to pay the same amount a month (or even just a little bit more) to enjoy all the content they offer and not just one show.

Maybe they keep forgetting to get around to cancelling :-)

(not a millenial, but I may be guilty of this for some subscriptions!)

Re: Content Provider Apps
FX and AMC may offer limited episodes of shows for a short window a day after they initiailly air (I could be wrong).

I figured that buying season passes (on itunes or amazon) for the handful of shows I don't want to wait to be on netflix to watch, still costs less than a cable package.

(I also know of people who have friends or family members that share their cable provider log-in account info with them so that they can access the shows via the apps)

Content Provider Apps
The only reason my household isn't OTT only is that I was duped into a contract.  The second I can get out of it my house will be OTT only.  The only downside to that is not getting a few of the shows I watch on FX and AMC.  I wish content would put the final nail in the coffin and just offers paid content provider apps like HBO and Showtime have started doing.  I would much rather pay 8 dollars a month for AMC that 80 dollars a month for channels I rarely to never watch.

@mhh1ve I wonder if a lot of people aren't quite ready to cut the cord because they want to keep up with sports...although now there are some OTT options available for sports. Will be interesting to see what these stats look like a year from now.
