Re: Devices
I hope so! It's the only way to learn from mistakes and make them better for the consumers and the business itself.

Re: Devices
@Joe does no group learn from another? I suppose video content providers decided music was a different animal and assumed they would be able to continue to cable traditions for a long time

@Michelle: I think Hollywood and the cable industry have been going through the same types of pains that the music industry went through in the late '90s and early 2000s when online music (first primarily illegal, then primarily legal) became the big trend.

They'll eventually find a way to live with it, but right now they're still kicking and screaming.

Re: Devices
@Joe I wonder if they're looking back over the years and realizing the mis-steps taken with online content.

@Michelle: They're not just influencing it; they're changing the playing field.  Lots of news lately in industry pubs (Variety, Hollywood Reporter, etc.) about how traditional-studio bigwigs are wringing their hands over Netflix cutting into their business and that they can't get their phone calls returned.

Re: Making 4K More than OK
@freehe: I think it just refers to content in general -- whether original or licensed.  HBO is limited to original content.  Hulu and Netflix used to strictly license content and now do use both licensed content and original content.  And so on.  (This, of course, encourages companies that are both content-producers and OTT distributors -- like HBO -- to *not* license their content.)

Re: Making 4K More than OK
Hmm. But hypothetically, if there were a technology that upscaled all current content to 4K or higher resolution... would anyone adopt it? I don't think so. The throttling factor is the bandwidth for consumers. Some home users can barely get better than DSL speeds... which won't cut it for 4K+ video....

Re: Devices
@joe I haven't read that about Netflix. I'm not surprised they want to offer even more original content. They have done well with multiple shows thus far. Netflix will continue to influence the future of television viewing...

Re: Making 4K More than OK
I chose that too!

I do think that lack of content is an issue. I think for the most part it means lack of new content coming out? I'm not sure.

Making 4K More than OK
I selected Lack of content but what does this question mean - lack of content, lack of original content, lack of paid content, etc.

It seems as though new content is being generated everyday so I suspect this metric does not include original content. Also, have did not come up with this metric, what is lacking content?
