  1. This topic brings up a few points of interest, firstly streaming will obviously become increasingly popular as the viewers choice in the future because of it’s convenience and adaptabilty, Netflix with it’s HD and 4K offerings is commercially ahead of Australia’s limited competition and the reference standard for any future competitors to follow. FTA broadcasters are still struggling with quality streaming even though Freeview has been around for a while now, plainly the streaming of UHD / 4K programs will eventually supersede the current standard definition digital broadcasting, the new OLED / UHD 4K panels need the HiDef content to provide value for the TV’s money the slow progress upgrading to HD let alone UHD shows FTA companies are desperately trying to delay the inevitable when antennae broadcast TV is no longer cost effective in it’s current obsolescent form.
