    Perhaps already mentioned, but the international market has a lot to say. And the content, both library and original movies and shows. The problem with Disney is that most of the movies are either absent, I have already seen them or I don't want to see them. Their biggest potential is Star Wars fans who wants to see the Mandalorian and children who begs their parents to subscribe.

    Amazon Prime as an additional service they offer if you are a member, so that's not going to go away.

    Netflix is a brand and the biggest service for the moment, and is not in any danger in the nearest future.

    HBO is also amongst the more familiar outside America.


    These four are the largest ones, and those with the best chances to survive.

    Netflix Ia definelty in no trouble in the near future. But they are slowly losing and will continue to lose licensed shows. They will have to survive based mostly on Original content while Disney+/Hulu hasnt scratched the surface of theyrr catalog. Between Disney and Fox Catalog Netflix isnt gonna be able to compete when it comes to popular movies and shows. Disney is also gonna be turning out originals right there with Netlfix except Disney has Bigger IPs to do this with. Honestly I think Disney/Hulu, Netflix, Amazon, HBO max are all gonna be just fine. Its stuff like Apple TV and CBS all access or whatever it's called that I'm not confident in.

    Even if it's gonna take some years before Disney have established themselves with a certain amount of original content.

    We also have youtube and facebook, which someone may have already pointed out. People will use both these services even if they have a streaming service or not, but if they can become large in streaming as well remains to be seen, even if they will exist in the shadows of the giants in the business.

    HBO, Netflix and Amazon have already been around for a long time. Disney+ will be available in certain European countries about six months from now, but I don't have a complete list. Here are some of the countries: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Abo5oNn-h4

    From what I heard you can get most of the streaming services and it's still cheaper than cable.

    Wonder about Disney+'s library, though? They do have some of the most popular stuff in current culture right now.

    Dude come on. They have some good originals yeah, but for every good show they have 5 clunkers. Amazon is catching up fast and they have shown they are not afraid to spend the money to make their shows look good. You look at the trailer for the new season for the Expanse and you can tell they are not cutting corners.

    Sony has been cozying up to Netflix as of late.

    I could see them importing over there.

    Ghost Corps, Pascal Pictures, and SPA have been the vanity studios looking to move over. I could see Sony merging or selling off.

    All this streaming service crap to me is nothing but a cash grab and now, we're getting more and more up to the wahzoo! I miss the days when it was just cable and premium for new shows. Right now, all I can afford is Netflix and DC Entertainment, but just barely.

    I have to admit that I rarely think about what made me tired of cable and satellite.
    Which was 'everything is reality tv' or 'everything is a copy of CSI'.

    Once we switched to Over-the-Air (which is free) and picked up channels like MeTV, AntennaTV and CoziTV, I began to enjoy tv again.
    If you stick to one or two streaming services, and supplement it with Over-the-Air (and yes, there are digital recorders that work with an antenna), it's much cheaper than cable or satellite.

    You don't have to have them all.
    Pick a bundle streamer, like Sling or Philo, and pick a VOD service, like Netflix, Hulu or Amazon.
    Or just pick one.

    And if you do go with Over-the-Air, you could potentially have a monthly bill of $0.

    I don't miss cable at all. I don't miss having to paid up the wahzoo for a bunch of channels I'm not interested in. I don't miss being at the mercy of a programming schedule to watch my shows. I don't miss 2-3 minute ad breaks. I could subscribe to most of the streaming services are there and it will still be cheaper than cable. I currently have Prime Video, Netflix, Hulu and Disney+. It still isn't anywhere near what my parents pay for cable.

    If you can barely afford those two, you wouldn't be able to afford cable with premium channels either.

    The issue facing cable seems unsolvable. They are re-distributors and they're beholden to these licensing agreements where networks are paid an amount based on all customers, not on those who use them. Here in Chicago, the Cubs are putting all their games on their own network. If Comcast, AT&T or Dish pick up that channel, even non-Cubs fans are paying for it. That's bullshit. The content providers keep getting huge raises by bundling their bad channels with good ones then blacking out the good channels until they get more money for crap. Those costs have to be passed on and here we are with $200 cable bills.

    The content guys lose money on cord-cutting, too, and will need to make up all that revenue somehow. When streaming is the main game in town, Disney+ won't be $6.99, Netflix won't be $12.99, and unlimited broadband/mobile service probably won't be $20-50. I'm pretty sure we'll end up paying a lot more for a lot less.
