Are There Lessons in Go90’s Failure for Jeffrey Katzenberg’s Billion-Dollar Streaming Startup?

There was a lot to like about the originals on Go90, and my sense from using the service was that the programming wasn’t the problem. Peter Berg’s docuseries QB1 about elite high school quarterbacks is fantastic, Paul Scheer and Rob Heubel’s Uber parody Drive Share was light and innovative, and The Break with Michelle Wolf executive producer Daniel Powell’s mini-series Thanksgiving is staggeringly funny and should be for Thanksgiving what National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is ...read more

Apple Really Needs To Get On The Stick

A new study from Parks Associates confirms earlier studies from ComScore and eMarketer this year: Roku is running away with the streaming device market while Apple is lagging way behind, controlling a mere 15% of the market.

Comcast’s Decision To Add Netflix To Its X1 Cable Boxes Proves Who Cable’s Real Enemy Is (And It Isn’t Netflix)

Research firm Parks Associates estimates that 64 percent of U.S. broadband households subscribe to streaming video service but that only 36 percent of U.S. broadband households are using streaming players. That spread is partly attributable to people using gaming consoles, Blu-ray players or other devices, but it also includes people who use streaming services on their portable devices but haven’t streamed content to their living room TVs yet.
