    I believe geo-blocking is in place to accommodate national legislation. The streaming companies have licensing from the media providers only for specific countries. Licenses do not extend beyond borders, so the streaming provider cannot send content outside a limited area. I don't think it is any sort of conspiracy, just legal consequences.

    One of the biggest issues still facing the global uptake of streaming television is geolocking. This is predominantly in place so that incumbent television and media distributors can maintain strangleholds on their ever decreasing market shares, and has many corner cases where it doesn't work (such as people who live in a given market region but whose IP address says they don't - mine says I live 900 miles from where I actually do). Streaming video products are coming to market with built-in VPN explicitly to get around geolocked content. It's absurd that streaming companies are being forced into situations where they have to license content which forces consumers to consider who they spend their entertainment budget on. It means streaming services actually lose potential income streams. I wouldn't buy a service that only offered 2 series that we watch, it's not worth it.

    This is excellent! Three points:

    1. I already had Amazon Prime when I became a Hulu Plus subscriber. I know plenty of people like me who subscribe to at least two of the three streaming services mentioned.
    2. The CEO exec is correct! I spend my time on Hulu Plus watching shows like the (now-canceled) Forever. I also watch Elementary on the CBS web site. It isn't the programming, it's the access medium and always was. Provide more than one option and network television perpetuates.
    3. Thank you for showing me the correct way to construct a decent infograph!
