Over 130 million people subscribe to HBO globally.  Founded in 1972 with its first launch on a cable system serving Wilkes Barre Pennsylvania with the 1971 film, sometimes a Great Notion, starring Paul Newman and Henry Fonda, HBO was the world’s first “pay” tv service. Originally primarily airing movies over time it has evolved into one of the most successful and prolific producers of original shows. From today’s Game of Thrones to the Sopranos and True Blood of the past HBO is known for some of the most watched original programming on television. In 2015 HBO entered the “OTT” video market with the launch of their direct to consumer service HBO Now. With over $2 billion dollars in annual income HBO has a strong capital base for expansion. But what about the competition from Netflix and Amazon?  Netflix has been spending billions of dollars creating original programming for broadcast on their service.  As of April 2017 Netflix was reporting in excess of 99 million subscribers worldwide.

There are many more OTT providers than you realize.  One service offers to provide you with 600 channels. A Mashable article promises 33 Ways to Watch Free TV Online and of course there are the usual suspects; Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime, CBS, Crackle and the list goes on and on.

In our data crazed world most surely the algorithm masters will find a way. Some would say that quality programming only comes from experienced directors and producers.  Some of the most successful shows like House of Cards and Homeland are created, written and produced by seasoned professionals. It’s difficult to guarantee the creation of lots of successful shows.  OTT providers will employ different strategies to accomplish this objective.  Perhaps some OTT providers may opt to buy cable networks and/or a cable company.  Perhaps Amazon will buy Comcast. Are YouTube Stars Professional? Would you consider Michelle Phan, one of the longest sustaining YouTube stars…

Cable and Satellite Services are Dead, Long Live Video Streaming.

Cable and Satellite Services are Dead, Long Live Video Streaming.

During a recent conference Netflix CEO Reed Hastings perceived that linear TV (basically cable and satellite services) would start to decline in viewership and that in the next two decades Internet TV would take over. Well the results as of late make his predictions appear to be true.
