Attention streaming video folks.
Yes, we really, really like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, Apple TV+, Disney + stuff.
We like this and that on BritBox and HBO, or whatever you’re calling it today.
So why didn’t we throw Peacock, Pluto, Tubi into the pile? They’re free.
If we lived in China, we’d like Youku, iQuyi, LeTV and Tencent Video stuff.
If we were in India, we’d like Hotstar, Hungama, Spuul and Jio Cinema stuff.
If we were in Europe, we’d like Cinesquare, Uncut and Joyn+ stuff.
If we were in Africa, it would be APAC, EMEA; yeah, different stuff.
Get the picture?
It’s not about you.
