* Traditional subscriber base absolutely dwarfs streaming subscriber base * As we've discussed ad nauseum lol, ymmv on cost savings. I'd need 3 streaming services to get all my channels plus would need to remove my Cox data cap ($50/mo). That would cost CONSIDERABLY more then what I'm paying DirecTV Preferred Xtra + HR54 + 1TB data cap. Someone with 16 TVs and no data caps would obviously save money. * Some channels on streaming have restrictions like CBS forces you to watch ads after a day or two * How do you get OTA? * You really think Disney+ and Apple+ or whatever they're calling it will remain that low? Disney has an advantage in that they own the content, Apple+ surely doesn't. Dunno if you work in IT or not, but you're under estimating the cost of infrastructure, or completely ignoring it required to power streaming. Disney has already spent over ONE BILLION standing up the service. They have to recoup that money somehow. Let's see... how could they do that? Hey, I got an idea... why don't they raise the rates? . Just to give you an idea of costs, we have a few chinsy apps running in Azure (with a steep corp discount) and "zero traffic" and it costs $6000 a month just for my "resource group" for a few little apps just sitting around gathering dust tbh. Also, it's widely expected for more content owners to break off... NBC is doing it with Peacock+. Yet another service you'll need to subscribe to... when the smoke clears you'll probably need like 10 or more lol.
