So here is the problem. Everyone will have a little different idea of what channels they want. This is why a package deal just does not make sense. I always envisioned content providers providing an app and setting there own pricing model. Some may do subscription and some may do pay per view. I think it would be perfect to offer shows for $1.99 at release and $1.00 after one week. Based on that I would have a TV bill that works for me. The HBO Now subscription makes me...
I have to respectfully disagree. We can do things anyway we want. I give Bit Torrent as the proof of that. It is only consumers willingness to accept what we are given, rather than demand via our wallets what we want. I promise you they will sell us what ever we want, but first they will try to sell us what they want. It really is our choice. It is not "perfect all of a sudden". Television has been around for 60+ years, cable TV I think at least 40. The Internet is now 20...
One step forward and two steps back. We have good news and bad news. The good news is HBO Now. The bad news is Apple is going to sell us the same old concept of packaging channels and charging you for something you will never watch. Last Monday was a good day, this Monday was just the world is the same unimaginative place as always. Maybe I will cut the cord and just stop watching television all together.
I wonder if this will be announced at Monday's event.
Boring
Cheaper and faster service. There is no catch here, is there. They just want to do all of us a great big favor.
Which takes me back to my orginal position prior to the formal announcment of the watch. How do you call this thing a watch? Watch is a grossly inadequate description.
I find it amusing that people stopped wearing watches because they had a phone in their pocket and that the company that sold us millions of smart phones is now going to replace that watch that we stopped wearing because of the phone that they sold us. It's shiny, I want it.
Do these vehicles have the Apple logo on the doors. How do we know they are being operated by or for Apple?
Can we envision one day having all channels over the Internet. Free with ads or pay for a no ad feed? I bet not in my lifetime.
