Depois de quase um ano, o YouTube Red parece que vai ganhar um grande incremento, com a produção de pelo menos três séries originais.
” O YouTube Red já existe a algum tempo, mas continua esquecido em meio aos usuários de internet. Atualmente, o serviço pago do Red possibilita assistir a vídeos sem propaganda e anúncios, além de conteúdo exclusivo.
A ideia por trás destas novidades para o Red é simples: marcar território em meio ao crescimento de empresas como Netflix e afins. Além disso, aumentar sua base de assinantes também é primordial.
Outra ideia é criar uma ponte mais sólida entre youtubers famosos e seu público. A plataforma quer fisgar um público cativo, diferente do de outras meios de streaming.
Também está prevista a possibilidade do Red investir mais dinheiro em canais de sucesso dentro do próprio YouTube, criando vídeos melhor produzidos e mais conteúdos extras para clientes pagos.
Se vai funcionar ou não, é muito cedo para dizer. O importante é que a empresa se mexeu e agora busca conquistar mais um pedacinho da grande rede de usuários da internet.”
Netflix isn’t too worried about competition from Amazon’s video offering and is instead focusing on other tech competitors, including Snapchat and YouTube.
“Netflix has admitted that it still has “a lot of catch-up to do” if it wants to compete with digital competitors like Snapchat, and plans to gain market share by “winning affection” among consumers.
[…]“We think about it as share of screen time. And when people are doing other things with their screens, be they mobile or television screens, they’re not [watching] Netflix. So Snapchat, YouTube, Facebook video, all of that takes a lot of hours, probably much more so than Amazon,”
[…] “We’re closing in on 100 million members, but I remind everyone at Netflix that Facebook and YouTube have one billion daily actives. And so, in many parts, we are just so small compared to those other internet video firms and we have a lot of catch-up to do.”

” Since the 1999 launch of Napster’s music-sharing platform, the music industry has been in near-constant turmoil, its timeline marked with dipping revenues, lack of transparency, piracy problems and feuds over the fair distribution of dividends.
Music companies hate streaming services. Streaming services hate file-sharing services. And, most of all, artists and content creators hate virtually everyone else for making huge sums off their toil and feeding them the crumbs.
[…] At its core, the blockchain is a distributed ledger that can validate and register transactions without the need for a central authority. No one owns the ledger — it’s spread across the nodes that constitute its network and is publicly available to everyone
[…] In the music industry, the blockchain could transform publishing, monetization and the relationship of artists with their communities of fans”
[…] a transparent system would generate much more revenue and create more opportunities”
