This will be model unfortunately

The big production/media companies see streaming as the best way for them to manage their content without dealing with a middle company like a cable company or satalitlee company. No need to argue about rights etc.

They can control the subscription fees etc.

For NFL, right now they see how it goes with amazon, but dont think they are thinking about streaming all their games themselves, (as do pro sports).

For ACC in the details of the ACCNETWORK is a huge interconnection with ESPN/DISNEY Streaming in the future. The ACC is positioned to be brought along in any espn streaming solution. (SEC will be too, however, they are big enough - they COULD stream themselves).

Its a brave new world, however, the worse is older folks that are seditary and watch TV and is just difficult with cable.. how are they going to manage all this streaming stuff...
