Hope you had a great Christmas – me? Well Christmas is today, Boxing day, when family visit. This Christmas was a first of sorts as it was the first non-linear Christmas and so far it has been all the better for it. It does take a little more effort on the viewer’s part as they have to make their mind up what they want to watch but the choice is the viewer’s. It is interesting to see how the traditional broadcasters or service providers, such as Sky, are going to adapt to the new paradigm. (Of course the first step in this ever changing drama is that the Murdoch family have sold Sky, along with most of their TV and film business to Disney. If this move goes through then this will also change things as Disney will control an awful lot of content that non-linears such as Netflix fill their service with.)
The times they are a changing.
