I'm positive that streaming is taking over, SP. I know that some people tend to be passive in front of the tv, but a growing number are learning and expecting to take control.

Well you know yourself nearly all of my tv is streamed one way or another, i do think you are onto something when you said streaming will overtake linear in the future.
I think it will tvplayer are a good example of online tv company testing the waters with premium channels on their platform, nowtv have also said more channels are joining nowtv next year.

Another example of EU dabbling which results in the opposite of the intended consequences.
