    This is why streamers have mainly switched to a distributed release schedule. They need to keep people on longer to a service.

    Now that cable isn’t subsidizing streaming content, I expect the content to get cheaper to chase the vanishing pot of money.

      the flaw in their plan is that many people dgaf if they watch something the moment it’s released. they’ll just ‘catch up’ next time they sub to a service for a month.

        Probably, but it will affect the kinds of shows offered on streaming. A lot of streaming services thought that premium content would get subscriptions, but now that has been proven false. I expect the industry is going to see a massive shrink in the new economic climate.
