Streaming is remaking itself into the new cable

Streaming services are undergoing a transformation, resembling traditional cable TV models. They now offer ad-supported options, bundle services, invest in live programming like sports, and prioritize broadcast-like shows. This shift suggests that while TV technology has changed, the economics remain similar. It's implied that the future of TV content may lie in streaming services like Disney+ rather than traditional networks like ABC.

Pay for Cable (a collection of channels) -> Cancel Cable because Netflix has everything -> Netflix doesn't have certain shows I want so buy Hulu, HBO, etc -> Pay for a Bundle of streaming options (a collection of channels).

We have gone full circle.
