Is it possible for all these OTT services to survive? Competition is good, yes, I’m just wondering how many of these will last?
Commercials pay for it. I doubt there will be a dvr capable to record these, and it's not easy for the average person to record streaming channels and skip commercials, so they are forced to watch them.
I don't necessarily agree. Vue gave me better quality than I got with directv or dish. A few of the others were certainly comparable as well.
On the Direc tv now beta half the channels are 5.1. As far as 720 thats what you get for live and some 1080 on demand . The picture is as good as my Ota which is better than satellite
I've been testing Directv Now Beta and yes, I do get 5.1 on most channels and the picture quality is as good as Directv (still have Directv). I have not seen any buffering since I moved to the Beta version. They have made a lot of improvements and I assume more will come.
