I really hope content creators does not fragment the distribution, it will hurt the industry the way it did to the music business.


As a DirecTV subscriber there are a lot of channels that I do not watch because of their annoying on-screen logos, now I may be able to partake a new viewing experience and love it…


Thank the gods! I was starting to run low on good things to watch. Ehh, Netflix needs to focus a good bit more on their streaming, IMO. They are stubborn though.
