Major competition from Online Streaming Services (Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, etc.), an increasing demand for A La Carte channels, a younger demographic that doesn’t pay for traditional TV and the constant feud for more re-transmission money from Pay TV providers has pushed these major content providers into changing their game plan. Content from all of these top channels has been available online in some form over the last few years. However, these announcements usher in a new era of Pay TV un-bundling. Major content providers are now making their entire content library available to Cord Cutters in 2015, all directly from one source in an easy to stream fashion.
HBO, Showtime and Starz have been losing money for years, because their shows are the most pirated shows online. Other folks have been getting older content on Amazon or Netflix, while savvy streamers use their friends or family member’s Pay TV login credentials to get access to these premium movie channels full catalogue. Instead of alienating potential customers and missing out on OTT dollars HBO, Showtime and Starz will now offer all of their content online.
The NBA, as well as pretty much all sports leagues, already offer online streaming packages. The new NBA deal would provide access to all NBA games with no blackouts. ESPN is offering live streaming of all games from some major sporting tournaments in 2015. Most folks don’t realize that lots of sports can already be streamed for free without paying for TV service. You just need to have an internet provider that offers ESPN3 (Comcast offers ESPN3 w/o the need to pay extra for Cable TV service).
CBS plus all of the major network channels can be had in 1080 HD for free via an OTA Antenna or streamed online in a limited capacity from Hulu or CBS.com. Now under a new plan, CBS has already unleashed FULL access to all CBS Shows online here.
It’s possible that the different Streaming Media Players will build apps in to support some of these new Premium Content streaming options, but freeTVEE customers will always be guaranteed to have FULL online access to stream any content from any website.
