Streaming service costs!

Recommended Posts

I think you're wrong they'll never go yearly because that would a sure fire way to lose subscribers.

 

In fact all of these services need to keep the costs relatively low to be able to compete.

Virgin, Sky, phone, mobile, broadband, even magazines - all have yearly (or biannual even!) “contracts”. I can see streaming services do the same.

I'm always startled by the figures on how many people just watch the American version of The Office on Netflix. Over and over, presumably. I don't remember it being THAT popular when it was on.

And now you can add textbooks to that list:

Pearson said students would only be able to rent physical textbooks from now on, and they would be updated much less frequently.

He added: "For the Netflix and Spotify generation, they expect to rent not own."

 

Fuck sake.

More bad news for Netflix

 

Quote

shares plunged as much as 12% to $320.30 in New York Thursday, tumbling toward the worst one-day drop in three years, after the company reported a loss of 130,000 customers in the U.S. Netflix blamed higher prices and a weak slate of TV shows. It signed up 2.8 million subscribers internationally in the period, roughly half what the company predicted.
