Shifting past that, in fact, the opposite Free to Airs, the pay TV enterprise, the subscription enterprise, the massive internationals, are all our opponents, as a result of what they're competing for is competing for individuals’s time & cash. After which in fact, there’s the brief type content material, which remains to be competitors as a result of individuals have a finite quantity of hours of their day to observe content material. So to ensure that them to decide on you, you must make it a really compelling proposition. At totally different factors of individuals’s day, and factors of individuals’s lives, they make totally different selections. And that’s okay.
