The fragmented digital streaming environment is getting really annoying.

Agreed. Eventually we are going to have as many streaming services as we do cable channels. Thus, rendering the benefits of streaming null and void. We will just have streaming bundles instead of cable bundles.

Well, that's sort of the point. All the money people were saving by cutting cable and streaming was money that ended up not going to big media companies. They were always going to try to get that money back.

Yes, of course, we all knew they were going to get it back, and I'm happy to pay in some respects since there's more flexibility with what you choose to pay for, but I wonder if we're going to see more and more fragmentation and other companies breaking away from Netflix/Hulu/Crave to have in house options. It may get to the point of absurdity.

We probably will(NBC is going to have their own for sure) but like we discussed a while back it's probably not sustainable for all of these companies to exist in the long run. Netflix's whole business model right now is about continuous growth and there's evidence that they're running out of people to sign up.

We're probably going to see a rapid expansion as these big companies jockey to be one of the handful of ones that survive.
