Maybe in the longer term there will be greater unity between the various streaming services. In the near future, however, further decentralisation seems inevitable. Instead of subscribing to some sort of cable package with umpteen different channels included, people will wind up subscribing to multiple streaming services with various brands on them.
What would be really useful is a website that can let you search for a show/movie in your country and see what streaming services currently have it. Anybody know of such a thing?
Also, what would be the odds of Disney using a streaming platform to eventually just bypass the theatres and release something major, like a brand new Star Wars movie, direct to people’s homes for an additional fee?
