The Two Types of Streaming “Hubs” and Why They Matter

The companies creating hubs like this are, in many cases, the same companies that are offering major subscription streaming services. It seems very unlikely that Apple TV+ will be available through Amazon Channels anytime soon and equally unlikely that Amazon Prime Video will ever be offered via Apple’s TV app. HBO has worked with the hub system, but it’s fair to wonder if HBO Max will follow suit. Plus, there are major streaming companies without hubs: Netflix is not keen to pay any platform taxes, and Disney (which owns Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+) seems more comfortable with Roku than with Amazon. – Stephen Lovely, The Motley Fool ยป https://ift.tt/2mbyLru
