So you thought you could get away with just one (or two) services. Not if some of the big names have their way with assets being pulled from Netflix and Amazon and being secured behind producer services. Now you would have to pay for each owner to let you see those programmes you like.

Or is this the way it should be?

But what if you like shows from multiple makers? Do you really want to pay a subscription to each for just a couple of programmes?

Like a cable/satellite tv subscription?

Yep, we've gone full circle.
