Linear TV is dead! That’s what Netflix CEO Reed Hastings thinks, at least. There’s more to the story, though, like Netflix’s shrinking subscriber base and a murky future without any major franchises to entice new users. So… what happens now?
On today’s episode, we take a trip down TV’s memory lane and look back at how shows like Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? and Game of Thrones changed the game for all networks, how streaming devices could look to evolve and adapt and earn new revenue, and what the next 5-10 years look like for both linear TV and streaming services.
It’s time to sound off! Have you thought about canceling Netflix? Have you already pulled the plug and left the service? Tweet at us @Techstream and let us know!
