It would make sense for Disney to release a Star Wars live action series on ABC first, and then Netflix streaming after X amount of time, to avoid cannibalization. That way, the audience that wants to see the show immediately (with ads) can do so, and anyone who prefers no-ad streaming has to wait. The tradeoff is ads vs time, and everyone decides for themselves.

Of course I'm not counting DVR timeshifting, but that's just another kind of payment since you need to subscribe to something (cable, Aereo) to do that. (If a form of DVR timeshifting exists that requires only that you buy equipment, with no further subscription expense of any kind, somebody please tell me about it! )
Ah, but, alot of shows on On Demand now, during their first week after initial airing, you can't fst forward through the ads, and I believe DVR recordings of those same shows act the same way. So, you're still stuck with ads, even if you don't watch it live with many shows

Where are we going? And why are we in this Handbasket?
