Alternatively:

Google Play will never take over the VOD market while they have the strange policy of cripling themselves by only offering video on their own devices. Among other issues this means no AppleTV.

iTunes will never take over the VOD market while they have the strange policy of cripling themselves by only offering video on Apple devices. Among other issues this means no Chromecast.

1. Surely, it's a good thing if no single player is able to "take over the market"?

2. If we can get away from DRM'd video to plain MP4, in the same way that DRM audio fell away to plain MP3, that would be a happy place to be

3. I guess it's the restrictions from content providers which prevent this today
