Re: Beta on a Samsung Smart TV

Actually, Skippy25 makes a point: Verizon isn't a content creator. More like a distributor.
It's the studios that call the shots.
Netflix having its own productions is the beginning just like HBO was...

Not all studios allow their content on competition without licensing and royalties....

and the studios fear streaming and new technologies in general. Streaming has a lower value point than media sales and cable channel licensing. Streaming also gives the consumer something that strikes absolute fear into content owners... More control over when where and on what device the media is consumed on.
