Wavefront TV’s take on last week:
This is a very dynamic sector, and while that may feel like a safe harbor statement, it was on full display last week. There were heavyweights battling it out, new platforms announced, device wars heating up, and it means a continuing scramble for content companies trying to find their footing in this growing ecosystem. In a completely distributed model, publishers are vulnerable to these changes in a way that unfortunately is somewhat reminiscent of the role that social media platforms have come to play in the digital world.
Now, on to the news:
Wavefront TV’s take: Local news has been the last bastion of content for pay TV providers. Gray TV and others are going to try to change that.
Wavefront TV’s take: Google is making its’ push into TV – it was just a matter of time.
Wavefront TV’s take: Samsung is acting like Apple, which is a VERY smart move.
Wavefront TV’s take: Amazon is trying to improve its’ users experience – which is good, because there is a LOT of room for improvement.
Wavefront TV’s take: Quibi news time…..and time is running out.
