We have had TV programming "as a service" (Netflix, Hulu, etc.), but the quality hasn't suffered. Have you seen Stranger Things? Modern games have bugs because they are complicated. Mario Odyssey is a wonderful game but it's the most bug-ridden Mario game ever. There are 717,000 videos on Youtube showing glitches in Odyssey. Even with Nintendo's rigorous quality control, things are going to be missed in the code. It's a gigantic game.
Thanks to my lousy Xfinity service I struggled to watch any streaming content for most of last year. After giving me the runaround several times on the phone Comcast finally told me to exchange all of my equipment. As you can imagine it took the better part of a day (doing it all myself of course) and a few more days to get everything working. Things are a little better now (I can stream) but I notice a lot of the Netflix are shown in low-res due to my bandwidth constraints. Not everyone has good internet, and I would hate to have a company like Comcast standing between me and my ability to play video games.
