charliebrownnz:5 TV series, thats up to $25 per month for them, and nothing else?
I can see where yay are going All you can eat. Musicians get F all of that. Do you get all you can eat latest games for how much her month?
Where I am heading is there is a cost. And all you can eat works very well for past it titles, whether that be music, games or video. NF has heaps, but its old and its cheap. An SVOD that had all the latest and greatest will have very low content, but top content and probably cost 3 x as much. My take is everything costs, its good to be happy to pay, but are we all happy ro pay what it really costs, or is is what SUITS ME?
Five tv series is plenty for me, under the current model it will be 2-4 times more expensive without vpn's. The list of music service providers show that there are many ways to monetise a service. All you can eat is just one model, I'd expect an all and anything you can eat model in 4k to cost far more, but I don't think many people would realistically expect that. A free service with ads would be an attractive service for people that currently pirate, it would also lead to making pirating unacceptable for many people that currently believe it is ok given the lack of options.
There are just so many different ways content can be monetized, but we currently have only one or two expensive or very limited choices with tv content in NZ. And I know why sky are pushing thier model... Its profitable and they answer to thier shareholders... But it is also shortsighted as they won't be able to stop the alternatives as people become more Tec savy.
You've lost me. All you can eat SVOD for free with ads. Thats a lot of ads. You don't seem to know much about Sky, you talk as though they are staying with their successful and back in the day till just a few short years ago, satellite service that works great. Iv not met anyone who thinks that Sky are trying to stop the alternatives. If you were more up to speed you would know where and how Sky are going, and when.
