"shame the unified streaming service got quashed, paying into one pot, and having that revenue divided amongst the content providers would be a great service."

Yes, it was rather odd. It was effectively doing for streaming what the broadcast network does for terrestrial broadcasters. Of course it might have impinged on those broadcasters who don't use the terrestrial broadcast network such as Sky and VM. But surely competition is good? All the big near monopoly companies say so.
