Neon has the HBO series that the others don't, Amazon has its own series also (although interestingly, Amazon in the US has some HBO series like Boardwalk Empire, Band of Brothers, The Pacific, True Blood all spring to mind but these aren't available with Amazon NZ). Then theres Quikflix, are they still around?
We don't particularly want to see a monopoly, but against such giants like Amazon and Netflix, and to a lesser extent Neon/Sky, I struggle to see a place for Lightbox
Some are big, some are smaller. I imagine Neon would be small, and smaller than Lightbox, if ignoring the free Lightbox offering
End of the day, its the competition everyone wanted, and we are free to pick and choose to have 1, or 2 or more subs
Is it competition though? I can't sign up to either company X or Y to watch TV shows A and B.
I have to sign up to X to watch A and Y to watch B if I want to watch both. And price to sign up to both will be more than sign to one.
So you prefer a monopoly? If one provider had everything, it won't be $15 per month. Its like when Sky gets bashed, we want sport elsewhere, then EPL was released, yay. The n it was , I have to pay for Sky and EPL now. Can't really have it both ways. If you want to save money, forego something. If you want it all, there is a cost
No I want that if you want to watch EPL only you can get for $20 but if you want to watch EPL, Rugby , Cricket , Darts etc you can get it for $80, not $80 + $20.
So you do want one provider, but also so you can watch an individual content for a smaller fee
