Even though the world is opening up again, I'm still seeing lots of new movies at home. I'm a busy guy these days, so getting out to the theater isn't something that is quite easy right now. Plus, instead of having any sort of premium cable or special packages, I just have an internet connection and a handful of streaming services for myself. I think to myself, if I'm paying for all of these services, why not use them? The streaming services are still hard at work delivering content that you can see anywhere else. I think I can safely predict that due to COVID, the dynamic of entertainment and how we access it has changed, and will remained changed. The conglomerates are going to use these streaming services to their advantage every year. I think COVID saved the streaming wars from really taking steam. Maybe they could still happen, maybe the bubble might still burst. But it seems like this pandemic built them all to stay, and they will be used to the studios advantage. Accessing so much entertainment at home...maybe it was the future, and maybe that future got sped up.
We'll just wait and see how that all pans out for now...we are going to get into some more ridiculous summer movies you can enjoy at home.
