Neil: Sky’s competitiveness with Netflix will suffer following takeover

Andrew Neil argued that we are currently living in a TV age of “great quality and quantity”. Netflix will shortly pass 100 million subscribers, split 50/50 between the US and ROW, and commissioned 1,000 hours of original content last year. Meanwhile, Amazon Prime is now a standalone service with 76 million subscribers worldwide and Google will launch its virtual cable service in the US this spring, offering 40 channels for $40 a month, plus unlimited storage in a cloud based DVR. – Chris Dziadul, Broadband TV News
