The data comes off suggesting a bit more dominant position Amazon is driving video subscriptions, and I have to imagine Apple is not that far off in driving subscriptions to a vast manner of services like Netflix, HBO Now, Hulu, etc., as well. This article highlights a bigger trend and potential shift in who may control the content bundle ecosystem going forward.
