Streaming Services vs. Digital TV – Allies or Competitors?

 

Digital TV Vs Streaming

 

There is no doubt that streaming services are becoming more and more popular. With recent events such as Amazon Video purchasing rights to various Premier League Football games for £90m we are starting to see how much budget and power these various companies have to purchase or create extremely popular programmes or television shows. Netflix, for example, have a vast array of exclusively produced shows produced with funding by the company which has created a cult following of many shows produced by the platform.

Why Was the Free TV License Scrapped? – Who Was to Blame? – Explored by The Aerial Man

 

Elderly couple watch television

 

Another controversial story that hit the news and media outlets this month was the announcement by the BBC to scrap free television licenses for the over 75s. The move sparked outrage across the nation and as of writing, Age UK’s petition to save TV for older people has over 580,000 signatures. The irony was not lost on some who were quick to criticise the BBC for conveying the news just a week after extensive coverage of the 75th anniversary of the D Day Landings.

 

It’s estimated that 3.7 million pensioners will be made to make contributions towards their TV License (with an estimated 1 million of these veterans) for the first time in 20 years. Although many are blaming the BBC, others argue that it’s not as simple as this and that the government and outdated aspects of the license are to blame.
