I agree, theone. If only he would tell us why he's so sure that it will never happen. There doesn't appear to be any reason at all for Den's belief that the status quo will remain forever. I just hope it's not too big a shock for him when this becomes a reality!

Yes, it is, but we generally follow in their footsteps in these matters.

And here is some evidence of the trend in the UK and Europe.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

I'm struggling to think how some believe this is going to be cheaper for those who like a decent selection of content.

Buying individual subscriptions will soon mount up.

Whilst that is true, I think the trend will be away from pay tv linear broadcast channels and more towards OTT services.

If you no longer pay, say, £60 for your pay tv channels, you will be able to afford 5 or 6 streaming services instead. Plus of course the free on demand services such as the BBC i-Player, ITV Hub, All 4, Demand 5, UKTV Play, the TV Player, and so on.

You better ask the man of great vision and wisdom for that answer.

Some might follow but you go into most households in this country and Linear TV still very much remains king.

l think well that is different from your stance before when you proclaimed Linear TV to be as dead as a doornail.
