Re: Niche
I think sometimes companies are so busy trying to out due another business or get ahead, that they forget about their customers..

Re: Standalone Services Can't Survive
I understand that its cheaper but clearly this is a case of you get what you pay for. At least from my personal experience.

Re: Standalone Services Can't Survive
The Economy is slated to grow in 2018--albeit at times in a rather challenging way.    It is also of note that the US has a very pivotal year ahead of it as well.    

May we live in interesting times....as we embrace 2018.....

@vnewman I could not agree more as I see it the same way - it like a middle ground... one way or other....

Re: Standalone Services Can't Survive
@JohnBarnes!  Exactly!  I could not put my finer on it exactly but but this is precisely what is missing when you cut the cord completely.  I truly can't get past it and I imagine I'm not the only one  I'm a busy person and don't really have time to sit and wait for the suggestions to leisurely pop up and then decide if I want to stick around to watch it.  I guess if this is what you've grown to know, then you don't remember what you're missing?  There's a middle market someone needs to tap into here a little bit better.

Re: Standalone Services Can't Survive
vnewman,

I suspect this is why the ultimate endpoint is some mixture of streaming a la carte, with a basic revenue charge to the consumer allocated in very small slices; ultimately consumers probably want to be able to just see short clips till something holds their attention, and then hop back to the beginning (if it's something with a beginning/middle/end), and sooner or later bandwidth, tracking, and responsivity will reach a point where that can be sold to them. It is probably much closer than we imagine.

Apropos of Petukhov's situation, I really wonder how much longer the varioius "catch-up" attempts in less developed markets will remain a viable business model.  In media and information services, most nations (and people) seem to catch up as far as they can at each point.  Sooner or later everyone's catch-up point will be the state of the art.

On a side note, the "Tweet" I noted for all--a tough read:

Re: Standalone Services Can't Survive
Earlier, in response to a comment by Joe, I shared a Tweet to note that there is not one industry that is not volatile and subject to profound change--especially as we're faced with 40% of jobs disappearing....that's the bigger challenge as we begin a new month and as we continue to think about a reasonably viable future.
