Re: AMC Programming Piracy
The rise of so many OTT services is really doing good work to prevent piracy from getting out of control. This is a good thing. It's too bad it has taken video services so long to get up to speed. But at least now they are doing so.

Re: Content
Good points! I agree. Content is obviously very crucial to the whole swing of things, but I don't think it can be pinned down to one person, element or company.

Re: AMC TWD
@elizabeth I wonder how they buy new content. I can only assume analysis of originals helps them out. At the same time, I do think it would be tough to compete with original content like TWD.

Content
"Content is essential. Whoever controls the content will control and guide the direction of industry."

 

Such a true statement, Content is essential. Absolutely...


But in my opinion content control can not be owned by an individual company or individual industry. It has multiple elements in it. And that collaboration and coordination ceomes very critical and challenging when dealing with content discrepany disputes / allegations or any other regulatroy / compliance related issues. That's where the real team work plays out instead of finger pointing.

Piracy Scare
"If we offer a show in the morning, by 6 p.m. that day it will show up on torrent sites," she said. "We need to do more to reduce piracy."

This is very scary. But that is teh truth as well that almost majority are dealing with. Piracy challenges are increasing exponentially.

Re: AMC Programming New Content Acquisition
@freehe - I think that was said only part seriously. She was just trying to underscore the bewildering array of new technologies, and it's impact upstream on movie rights negotiations. certainly lawyers are involved, but the challenge is figuring out how to apply existing law when a new technology/use case emerges that simply never existed before. For example, with transactional VoD, the studios aregued it was a new release window that required seperate rights, the pay TV providers argued that it was the same at the pay-per-view rights and should be included automatically in the rights they had, and the DVD rental stores argued it was in the home video release window, and they should have those rights. Now, there never was such a thing before, so there was no clarity on how to deal with it, legal or just in terms of business rules.

Re: AMC TWD
@Michelle - The Walking Dead has definitely been a game changer for AMC, they really started being successful with Breaking Bad, but now they have the Walking Dead and they are undoubtedly at the top. Some people weren't very happy with the season premiere, but it won't be enough to cause them to take the slightest hit. They seem to be unstoppable right now.

Re: AMC TWD
***spoiler alert!***
Yes the big plot twist was really big.
***spoiler alert!***

Attention-grabbing plot turns like this are really good for the network. I can only imagine how well the hit show can have on future content acquisition. It seems like it can only be good for AMC.

Re: AMC's Local Moves
@Adi - I think you make an extremely valid point, a news station in a smaller market is a lot more likely to be able to compete with a smaller initial investment than a news station here in the States. I can't even think of another way to differentiate yourself in today's news market than what already exists, here in the States anyway.
