What happens if and when these companies go out of business?  

I called Amazon a few years ago, and I could not get a straight answer.  I went up about three levels in the mgt. staircase, but the answers were very vague, “Well, I am sure they will have to make accomodations for those things you purchased.”

That is exactly why I won't movies from a stream.   I have Spotify but I pay a monthly fee for that to have complete access.  The chances of the big firms going out of business is remote but things happen.
