Managed Streaming Devices
The reality for Pay TV providers, currently, is subscriber interest in options that give them greater control. Consumers are frustrated by subscriptions that seemingly require them to pay for channels they never watch. There is little interest by the consumer in understanding the ‘back story’ that require Pay TV providers to provide them with the various channel packages. There is decreasing interest in ‘bundles’ that combine voice, data and video services.
The consumer wants control of their home entertainment budget. But they also want simplicity in accessing the content they want. And, while streaming services give them access to content at an affordable monthly cost, they are subscribing to more than one service to gain access to all the programs they want to watch. In fact, the number of services to which the average household subscribes has been steadily increasing from 2 or 3 streaming service to 4-7 services.
