    Oh cool more subscription services yay how good!

      If it delivers good content at a good price - what exactly is the issue?

      • +103 votes

        Needing like 7 subscription services to get access to all the things one might potentially want to watch?
        It's almost like they've made cable channels again but with more steps and more payments required…

        • +19 votes

          I'd agree normally, but no one is forcing you to have them all at once… you can easily cancel and renew.

          • +17 votes

            @scuderiarmani: Yes because everyone enjoys having to juggle 6 or 7 different applications to watch their TV not to mention if you do decide to cancel and renew making sure you cancel the services at the right time.

              @CriticalImpact: Im really confused how is that different to free to air tv? do you not switch channels?

              •  

                @macdaddyjordan: How is switching channels the same as managing subscriptions for multiple services that each have their own payments methods, apps and quirks.
                If you want to view FTA in a different room you plug in an aerial and you are good.
                If you want to view different services in a different room, you need to download their app, install it and login. That's assuming whatever TV you have actually has the app for whatever service you are trying to access. If not, then you might need to go buy a shield, apple TV or android box.
                I mean to be fair I think you've missed my point which isn't really that it's a pain to use but rather the dilution of what each streaming service has makes it very annoying and costly to watch a small number of shows that might be spread across multiple services.

            @scuderiarmani: Foxtel was the same though, add and remove packs each month. This is literally Foxtel again

          Yeah, and? Different companies own different content. Don't understand why you think you're entitled to the content all under one umbrella at a very cheap price.

          Is it ideal for the customer? Of course. Will it ever happen? Lol, not a chance.

          •  

            @pharcyde: Because of free to air.

            Allowing for patience rather than on demand shows.

          • +7 votes

            @pharcyde: The capitalist argument would be that if it's what the customer wants, it'll happen…
            Unfortunately right now it looks a lot like the way it'll happen is through something like torrenting…

            At the core of it is that it is becoming cumbersome to deal with again, a couple different providers, sure - it's manageable, but one provider per studio, each charging much the same as we were initially charged for access to most of them together, that ain't right.

          • -34 votes

            @bohn: Not really. Unless you really can't afford $9 a month to subscribe. We are no longer in the days where one movie cost $50 and we need to pirate because it is too expensive

            • +13 votes

              @Letrico: It's not just $9 though is it - you might want to watch a show on Netflix, some stuff on Disney, and some shows on Hulu and Amazon - where else? Expect other networks to create their own streaming services in the next few years and to restrict the availability of certain shows.

              • -8 votes

                @bohn: I guess if you really need to watch all the shows from all different services.

                But what I said is sti true. Even comparing getting all the services with the old Foxtel price it is barely half of the price.

                Not sure about everyone else but dropping 20-40 dollar on services per month to have a massive libraries of show to watch is not too expensive. Even cheaper than going to cinema with a friend for one movie. Not to mention you can split the account with a friends to reduce the cost.

        • +30 votes

          The fracturing services are becoming a pain, however it is going to end with most of the services going bust so there won't be that many.

          When Stan loses Disney content I don't see how it will remain viable, they will have to drop to $5 a month.

          Foxtel is already partnering with Netflix and that is probably a partnership which will end up with them merging into Netflix.

          Disney is assured a place in the final top 3 at the end of the "subscription wars" because they own a frightening percentage of the entertainment industry so will dominate on the fact that they have so much exclusive content.

          Damn all our friends live in different houses, so much time wasted going to different houses. Why don't they all consolidate and live in the same house?

          • +16 votes

            @Keveira: Because Tim, doesn't like Walt. Mike doesn't get on with Reed. Reed would prefer living with Walt, but not Tim.
            Rupert, wants everyone to live at his place, but you can't negotiate the rent, though he looked after Reed recently.
            In fact Tim, doesn't get on well with anyone, so he wants to live in his own house, so once you visit, he won't let you leave.

            @Keveira: Yes but my friends don't charge me monthly fees to access their houses. Maybe yours do but if they do you should get different friends.

          Just do what any sane person would and cancel the subscriptions you aren't using at the time. At least thus far none are locking people into contracts and few if any have any sort of incentive or even option to pay for more than a month in advance.

          Netflix is absolutely terrible now. I seriously struggle for content. It’s all their own stuff and they are 99% sub par

            @tchi6: I swear I'm one of the only people who solely watches Netflix Originals, and absolutely nothing else on the service, and am absolutely happy with the quality of most of it. Easily justify the now $20 for the 4K plan a month.

        •  

          That is not true. Heaps of stuff on Sony crackle, tubi, old movies, kodi NZ and NZ TV addons.

          Not to mention all the FTA streaming apps.

          There is also an app that aggregates some of these providers. Can't remember what it is called.

          We pay for prime, Stan and netflix and have a ridiculous amount of content and variety.

        •  

          You are seeing it completely wrong.
          Without the streamers you would not have the brilliant content of today. You wouldn’t have all the Netflix or Disney plus content, because the economics of free to air or cable wouldn’t support it.

          In the end it’s up to you if you want to pay. Its not exactly a large amount of money for most people. Skipping the adds alone is worth it.

      • -2 votes

        If it delivers good content

        Because their content is already on other services

        So in the (unlikely) event you want to watch it you have to fork out more money.

        The Rise of Netflix Competitors Has Pushed Consumers Back Toward Piracy

    • +12 votes

      Everyone is just gonna go back to pirating. When Netflix came out and was like $10 a month or whatever and just had everything was fine, I'd pay that its much easier than torrenting. But now as well as the cost just the effort of juggling and having to check which show is on which service? Nah just download whatever I want thanks..

      • +10 votes

        Who the hell stopped pirating… Streams crush the (profanity) out of the bitrate to save money on bandwidth, created a network peak hour, payment model doesnt bring winners and losers.

        Give me a steam like model where I pay to download individual episodes(to stop them dumping cash only on pilots and end seasons cliffhangers) with AV1 wrapped in MKV. Until then torrents are the better product.

        • -1 vote

          I still torrent anything I really enjoy watching, like movies and stuff. But just to watch like Seinfeld or some crap in the background or the kids shows I was very happy to have lessened my efforts maintaining MyMovies at home just streaming.

      • +1 vote

        No problems, I’ll just take up the slack and pay your share to maintain quality. If everybody pirates, all we'll end up getting is low budget, low quality shows and movies. It takes a shit load of money, resources and talent to produce content, People involved are all trained professionals who require their show or movie to make money for them to continue their trade and make a living. I used to blissfully pirate in the old days, but all the valid reasons for pirating are gone. Stuff is now instantly available and relatively inexpensive. People forget that these shows and movies are made with the aim to make money. If less money makes it along the production line, the studios cut costs and risk on future products, and we end up with safe boring content.

        Netflix is actually in a world of hurt. They don't have anywhere as many exclusives they can lock away from everyone else. They've been riding shared content from studios that haven't had their shit together for the last 10 years, and they've STILL lost a crap tonne of money. Investors will surely be fleeing this bomb in the next few quarters. Ouch time is coming (unfortunately).

        Netflix is dying a death of a thousand cuts. Between constant price creep, average originals and the loss of their golden goose (the office US) among tons of other content they will suffer.

        The tipping point will come when the price becomes too high per month.

        •  

          I think it's not just Netflix, there's many content providers coming online (like CBS/Ten). They're all strangling the golden goose to grab a few extra eggs in the short term, but will kill it in the long term, as people won't pay the exhortation price required to keep half a dozen providers online. Just like digital tv & radio worked in the short term, but the amount of content required to keep them kicking over. With more crap, less eyeballs, meant more revenue required (i.e. ads) which meant even less eyeballs and the vicious circle continues.

            @jackwoz: I've found Amazon has some really excellent shows on it, both new and old, the problem is you need to wade though an immense pile of steaming garbage to find anything that doesn't look like a 2 year old pieced it together on Windows Movie Maker.

      They don't need to compete, they can flip the switch on exclusive rights for about half the world's content.

      I don't expect that cheap $9 price to stay long either. Once most of the competition starves to death they will jack it up.

      They really need to be stopped from controlling any more of the film industry because they are heading for monopoly status.

        Bingo!

        Pull the plug on content, make it exclusive, low price first year or two, when everyone dies it's time for Jackaroo! For example, why all marvel shows that were played on Netflix died? Because they belong to Disney now, no rights, no continuation. Things are changing fast, everythings happening so fast in literally every sphere of life nowadays. Before you had things marking a decade, decades, now you're lucky to mark a year.
