TV and Film Production Costs Don’t Make Sense in the Digital Era

Shane Smith of Variety writes: I think the biggest issue for legacy media — both TV and film — is that it just costs too much money to develop a TV series or movie. And most of them don’t work. Then the one that works has to pay for the rest.
Vikram R Chari's insight:

Same goes for Sports production as well. But the drivers of the costs may be slightly different.

The Telco's Dilemma: Building or Outsourcing?

There are three important questions service providers need to address for in-market and out-of-market expansion.
Vikram R Chari's insight:

I would go with a hybrid build-and-outsource strategy for out-of-market expansion. This will help spread the risks and lower the costs of entry into out-of-market regions. This could be structured in several different ways - from cost sharing at one end to revenue sharing at the other as also a combination cost-share revenue-share model based on the demographics, etc.

Vikram R Chari's insight:

I'd rather that it launch OTT through a streaming provider as is done the US and not with the incumbents such as Bell, Telus, Rogers, etc. They'd earn more and the subscribers will flock to them.
