I'm willing to bet those channels--except for the really big and or trusted ones, if any --will have to charge less to attract customers and Apple will still be the preferred App Store just b/c of simplicity and trust.
If correct, it will be interesting to see if content providers end up putting their tails between their legs and shutting down their discount stores and return to Apple. I think it will be similar to cheap phones vs. premium phones. Sure some will go though the pains to save money b/c they have to or want to and the media will claim them a success but in reality Apple will continue to dominate like they have w/their phone strategy.
I cancelled my Parfallels subscription renewal, which will expire next May, due to lack of information regarding Apple Silicon. This and the fact that now you need to pay $99/year to be able to use more than 8GB of RAM is a nail in the coffin. I am sick and tired of software subscription models for software that doesn't need subscription models.
I use Windows for engineering software (CAD, FEM.. etc) and will most likely going to end up buying cheap PC + Remote Desktop for my Windows needs..
