ISP-driven OTT services
wow, These ISP-driven OTT services never seem to take off because to succeed, they require that you're willing to disrupt on price. Why would lowongan kerja any company that has convinced people to pay $100+ per month

Re: ISP-driven OTT services...
@KBode - I barely watch TV and I don't watch a lot of movies, but I haven't heard anyone I know using any alternatives to Netflix.

Re: ISP-driven OTT services...
I cut the cord some time ago so for me it's a replacement for traditional TV, even though I need to use multiple services (Hulu, Amazon Prime, Roku, Plex) to get anywhere close. Then again I watch perhaps less television and am less interested in much of the mainstream fare than others may be.

Yes, I think Netflix's catalog is too small to be an honest replacement for most people's cable connections (or DVRs), and instead just acts as a supplement. Comcast had hoped to replace that supplement with a supplement of their own, though clearly it wasn't cooked quite well enough.

Trying to outwit Netflix mightk be a steep uphill climb. And take the typical cable subscriber's disdain for Comcast, et. al. service, it's not easy to get those extra monthly subscription fees into the bank with any success it seems.

Re: ISP-driven OTT services...
Kbode,

Question to you.  I have always viewed my Netflix subscription not as a replacement for Broadcast TV but as a replacement for my VoD and DVR.  I can see binge viewing of The Wire or Breaking Bad as a unique behavior, but I still don't see it replacing the laundry list of channels.

How about you?

Re: ISP-driven OTT services...
Have you found that any of the "me too" over the top options in Canada are worthy alternatives to Netflix?

Re: ISP-driven OTT services...
@KBode -- can't speak on behalf of Rogers, but in Canada we don't have a whole lot of options when it comes to providers and so Rogers might just be doing anything to keep the market share from Bell, its primary competitor.

These ISP-driven OTT services never seem to take off because to succeed, they require that you're willing to disrupt on price. Why would any company that has convinced people to pay $100+ per month for hundreds of unwatched channels want to threaten those revenues by offering something with more flexibility at a lower price?
