It is already starting to happen-I'm not sure what to think about this.
It could be that each network family will have its own streaming service and there will be big pressure on the MVPDs (including OTT aggregators like YTTV and SlingTV).
CBS All Access-all the CBS programming and soon Viacom
Disney+-All Disney, and based on that $12.99 price which includes ESPN+ and Hulu ( ABC programming, Freeform, FX's), how long before they offer regular ESPN for more money, say a few dollars more
HBO MAX-all Warner stuff
Discovery-Starts up early 2020, all owned Discovery content and newly owned like HGTV, Food Network, etc.
Hopefully the free market will take over to keep prices under control, not just in content but in Broadband service since in a couple of years we should have 5G and Starlink type service for choices.
