The Next Big Thing

Es gilt als ausgemacht, dass das traditionelle lineare Fernsehen das nächste Opfer des digitalen Medienumbruchs sein wird. Bislang hält es sich allerdings noch recht wacker.

Dafür, dass das so bleibt, tun die dominierenden Player im Fernsehmarkt aber auch einiges, wie Matt Buchanan in seinem Elements-Blog beim New Yorker beschreibt. Das sind vor allem die Fernsehsender und – in den USA – die Kabelnetzbetreiber.

Zwar stehen Apple, Google, Microsoft und andere längst in den Startlöchern, um den großen Bildschirm im Wohnzimmer zu erobern, aber dafür brauchen sie Inhalte. Die großen Medienkonglomerate, die diese Inhalte haben, haben jedoch wenig Interesse daran, ihr etabliertes Geschäftsmodell des traditionellen linearen Fernsehens zu untergraben. Wären alle Inhalte jederzeit online verfügbar, bräuchte es keine Fernsehsender mehr und die Kabelnetzbetreiber würden vom Inhalteanbieter zum technischen Dienstleister degradiert. Wie schwer man sich als solcher tut, Geld zu verdienen, kann man sehr schön am Beispiel der Mobilfunkbetreiber beobachten.

Das ist auch der Grund, warum HBO seine begehrten Serien weiterhin exklusiv über sein Kabelabonnement vertreibt – „Girls“, „The Newsroom“ und „Game of Thrones“ sind weder auf Hulu noch auf Netflix oder einem anderen Streaminganbieter zu bekommen. Wer HBO nicht abonniert hat, muss warten, bis die Serien auf DVD erscheinen.

Auch wenn das lineare Fernsehen in einer Welt ständig verfügbarer Online-Medien längst zum Anachronismus geworden ist – ohne ein Geschäftsmodell, dass die Inhalteanbieter und Kabelnetzbetreiber einschließt, wird sich daran nichts ändern.

Genau daran wird derzeit hinter den Kulissen kräftig gewerkelt: Während Google und Intel versuchen, direkt über die Produzenten an Inhalte zu kommen, unternehmen Apple und Microsoft alles, um mit den Kabelnetzbetreibern ins Geschäft zu kommen.

In Deutschland ist die Situation trotz anderer Ausgangslage ähnlich verfahren: bei Lizenzware wie amerikanischen Filmen und Serien stehen auch bei uns die Interessen der Fernsehsender denen der Streaminganbieter entgegen. Die größte Produzenten eigener Programme dagegen – die Öffentlich-Rechtlichen – werden durch unsinnige gesetzliche Regelungen daran gehindert, ihr vom Gebührenzahler bereits bezahltes Programm diesen auch unbegrenzt zur Verfügung zu stellen.

Solange sich Inhalteanbieter und Fernsehsender weiter selbst im Weg stehen, wird es nur einen Gewinner geben: die illegalen Streamingportale. Das nützt letztlich niemandem. Der Druck, ein neues Geschäftsmodell zu finden, ist also da. Die Schlacht um unser Wohnzimmer hat längst begonnen.

  1. Yuuki: đúng là bộ này có nhiều thuật ngữ phức tạp, hack não nhất là mấy cái phần giải thích skill nên rất mong chờ bản dịch của nhóm ^_^

  2. Let me write that down. You say that the one degree rise in temperature in the past hundred years has caused all those problems? According to your reasoning there should be more cancer in Miami than in Boston. I am moving North!

  3. Hi there, just became aware of your blog through Google, and found that it’s truly informative. I¡¦m gonna watch out for brussels. I will be grateful if you continue this in future. Numerous people will be benefited from your writing. Cheers!

  4. The Right Wing ProfessorI suspect Mann's motivation in bringing the suit was to expose his tormentors as having political views the majority of educated people would reject. Ridicule has been a very common tactic in the (particularly British) climate wars. I take the view that ridicule is the reason for Exxon's funding of right wing bodies like the Cato Institute and the Competitive Enterprise Institute. Exxon has publicly accepted the AGW narrative for 7 or 8 years. BP, Enron and Shell welcomed the Kyoto Protocol I am not attacking you or your views, just replying to your message.

  5. Looks awesome. I like the clean layout. The featured article scroller is a little distracting. It is scrolling much too fast to read the blurbs before next article rolls in, at least on my end w/IE. Actually took me a while to realize I could stop its scrolling with the menu on the right. New logo would be a plus. Go easy on the color suggestions, I prefer easy on the eyes and readability over splash.

  6. I think continuing to label these companies as "Japanese" is misleading and dangerous. These are now American companies that are here to stay and must be competed against. The sooner everyone realizes that, the better off we will all be. These are not "slant eye gooks" that killed your grandfather that we can blame all of our problems on and hope for the good ole days that we will soon have after they are kicked out of the country by new laws.

  7. Or even wondered who posts some of this stuff that you find? Honestly the internet had been like a different position, except that recently it seems to have become better. What are your thoughts?

  8. I have no interest of ever downloading IE9, from looking at the screenshots I can tell this is just another failure from Microsoft. With Chrome 7 coming out, which Google claims will be 60 times faster then the already insanely fast version, Microsoft has no hope of EVER competing with Chrome. or even Firefox for that matter.

  9. I was looking the internet checking out some stuff and located your web site. I wanted to tell you that I feel your web site has some excellent content material and that I have already favorited this site so I can check out again soon excellent job!

  10. interesting, a red hollow bar on the daily… havent seen one of those in a long while… when was the last time i saw that one?…. hmmmm… oh wait, there was one right at the beginning of this sell off…

  11. I am often to blogging and i really appreciate your content. The article has really peaks my interest. I am going to bookmark your site and keep checking for new information.

  12. I have a number of friends who have been taking Krav Maga for years.When we were in college a man tried to mug one of them. Thanks to his training they were unsuccessful.Did I mention that when the police arrived they tried to arrest my friend. When they saw the mugger they assumed that he was the victim.

  13. Threading ist aus, weil gibt es nicht. Manchmal da macht das P2 Theme was es will, zumindest glaube ich das, weil manchmal erwischt mich solch ein Fehler auch.

  14. It is interesting to wonder what all the antisemites would say had the attack on Iraq's reactor failed and Saddamn built The Bomb. No Desert Storm, the end of Kuwait, the destruction of Tehran with or without the NYT's gleefully cherished fantasy of a nuked Israel. no Arab Spring, a nuclear arms race across the region including Libya, Egypt and Saudi Arabia, nuclear and chemical terrorism and oil at $1000/bbl. And probably no iPhones for angry trust fund anarchists to tweet about how it's the Jews' fault.

  15. Hallo – Ik vind uw website! Kun je bij alle te helpen met de opgeslagen vliegtuigen op Istanbul IST? Ik bezocht vorige week en merkte op verschillende vliegtuigen aan de linkerkant van 35L, terwijl bij het opstijgen?David

  16. Jeg skammer mig for jeg har vist aldrig før fået kommenteret på dine dukker. Men kære Wenche hvor er de altså bare helt fortryllende. Og alle de små detaljer du får med er helt utrolige. Hvilken pige lille som stor ung som gammel ville ikke elske at eje sådan én. Du er utrolig dygtig.

  17. July 11, 2010 at 3:09 pmCandice,The blessing part sometimes takes a while to show up, but once it does it’s the sweetest thing in the world and you’ll never look back. I think life is way too short to spend it doing something you hate. Reply

  18. Hi Pat, great to hear from you. Thanks a ton for checking out the book, and thanks even more for sharing it. I really appreciate it. I hope everything is going well for you and your family.

  19. „sorry“ after each kill.They said it would be fine. And the apologies became the best bit of the ad.I may have dreamed this. But I think I heard it at one of those talks you go to from time to time.It may or may not be true.

  20. And you're damned right I can't stand crackas– a more useless, hateful, greedy being hasn't been created. Is it the lack of melanin that makes you so damned hateful?If crackas are useless what that make a dumb nigger who depends on them?

  21. 'I try to take each day at a time,But sometimes several of them attack me at once'.I do love your posts. Wonderful, thought provoking quotes, glorious images. Thank you.

  22. Yo creo que la ps3 no seva a piratear yo la tengo i boi a venderla para conprame la xbos360 que le da 100000000 buertas (estoi asta las narices de gastarme 70 euros en un juegoque que luego no son lo que parece)

  23. Bonjour, Merci pour le tuto mais quand j’éffectue le reboot complet de mon ipod touch version 3.1.2, mon ipod se lance dirrectement en mode DFU et donc je n’arrive pas à faire le reste des opérations… Merci de vos réponses!


  25. I think other website owners should take this site as an model, very clean and great user genial style and design . “One of the first duties of the physician is to educate the masses not to take medicine.” by William Osler.

  26. Is it a high maintenance plant? Is it commonly known as Eugenia Oleina.Sorry for the questions. Recently, I was told there is only one type which is the orangy-red leaves. I was shock to discover that they had the maroon type. The more common one in Malaysia (around my neighbourhood) is the orangy-red leaves. Thanks to your pics & infor I was able to convince my landscaper.

  27. Snuttan : Tack för det och ja nog blandas det högt och lågt, annat kan man inte säga Leroy: Om det så vore att din närvaro påverkade läsarsiffrorna så skulle jag skita i det. Du är aldrig otrevlig mot någon när du skriver så har folk något annat problem med dig så får dom väl packa sig i väg då. Man ska inte bry sig så jävla mycket vad folk tycker och tänker helt enkelt.

  28. I simply could not go away your website before suggesting that I really loved the standard information a person supply for your guests? Is going to be again ceaselessly to investigate cross-check new posts

  29. This is the most comprehensive info I’ve seen, yet, about Facebook. Well done!One thing I don’t see on the Page that I’m managing is an ‘Info’ tab. I want to see who my customer has liked previous to me taking over as admin. Is that an app, or something I have to enable, or am I just looking in the wrong spot?Any direction would be appreciated.thxBonnie

  30. Oh, beautiful. Thanks for this. Both as a reader and a blogger, having a “like” button means people who don’t have something specific to say but want to tell you they were there can do so instead of stealthing it or leaving a comment that just makes them feel like they didn’t make the effort.

  31. my mother is thinking about moving to the country! i don’t want to move to the country because there’s nothing to do there! that’s really boring! i’m a city person! what is there to do for fun in the country? what are the advantages? what are the disadvantages??yes but i do not like quiet places.i’m 14. and yes i do know that i don’t like quiet places because my grandma lives in the country and it’s really quiet and i hate it! it freaks me out!

  32. Bonjour je vais me faire le lissage brésilien Rlizz aprés l’avoir vu dans l’émission c’est au programme, je voulais avoir votre avis car vous avez l’air de trés bien vous y connaitre ! Je rêve de cheveux carrément moins abimés et plus facile à lisser.

  33. When I was about 8 to 14, I really liked the Winds of Light series… but I only had six books, not eight. (Yet it was a complete story, IIRC?) Curious, is the Orphan King about equivalent to book 1 of the Winds of Light series (“Wings of an Angel”)? Personally I don’t see how he could just retitle them… TBH Winds of Light was a really pretty name for the series and rather accurate.

  34. Wanted to add also that from the bit of research I’ve done, surgery isn’t even a guaranteed cure, and I’m getting the impression that each doctor kind of believes his own thing, and I may not get one who doesn’t end up doing that good of a job…I’m just trying to figure out if surgery is worth the risk.

  35. fabulous blog, very . I like it a lot. I come acoss the article by google search engine. I would visit your site oftenly and forward it to my classmates. Please keep it updated. Keep on the good work. – A blog lover

  36. ben niet helemaal mee eens noortje. Diana zeg het op haar eigen feiten dat ze Mike lelijk vindze ziet op tv en kan daaruit dus haar mening vormen gebasseerd op (haar) feiten)Roos en die Lola zeggen dat Diana lelijk is en dat is niet op feiten bedoeld. want ze kennen die Diana vast niet.

  37. ಈ ಕೆಳಗೆ ವಿದ್ಯುತ್ ಹಾಕುವ ಧನ್ಯವಾದಗಳು, ನಾನು ಮಕ್ಕಳು ತರುವ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಅಭಿಪ್ರಾಯ ಹೇಗೆ ಬಹಳಷ್ಟು resonates, ನಾನು ಒತ್ತಡಗಳ ಕೆಲವು ತುತ್ತಾಯಿತು havent ಅರ್ಥ ಅಲ್ಲ….ಆ ಒಂದು ನಿರಂತರ ಯುದ್ಧ ಮತ್ತು ಒಂದು acheful ಒಂದು.

  38. ¬¬ si yo he podido actualizar dos blogs de WP y siguen en perfecto estado, te aseguro que tú también puedes…Es muy fácil, lo peor que puede pasarte es que tengas que cambiar a una versión más actual algún plugin, nada más. De todas formas, hay una palabra mágica que me gusta mucho… BACKUP! :PAdemás, la última versión de WP tiene algunas actualizaciones interesantes.(aunque lo parezca, no me llevo ninguna comisión, es que me pase las pre-vacaciones investigando y trasteando WP para la próxima versión de Ludosofía que está en un propio) 🙂

  39. Ich muss unbedingt mal an dem Duft schnuppern! Allein wegen dem Flakon und der schwarzen Flüssigkeit bin ich verdammt neugierig auf den Geruch! Ich hatte bisher glaube ich nur ein Promi Parfum, eines von Naomi Campbell, das ist schon so lange her dass ich gar nicht mehr weiß wie es überhaupt riecht…

  40. No debería olvidar que Jefferson mantenía correspondencia con Shelley. Aquí podríamos aspirar a un intercambio epistolar con Rahola. Vendría a ser igual pero no lo mismo.

  41. 基本法規定,選特首者要四十歲,可以想像到班叔父的思維。小弟三十幾,一事無成,亦無分文。但係孫文、黃興搞革命時都不過三十來歲,有的只有廿幾,真係完全唔怕死,就搞低個皇朝(你亦可以話班友搞出個禍來)。算啦,吾輩都無得同老毛、周公之輩相比:吾輩有志氣者曰:要上位、要發達;老毛等加入共黨,æ›°:上位者,即敢教日月換新天,用紅太陽換青天。吾輩受到打擊,æ›°:要飲酒消愁、領綜援、要怨天尤人,有志者亦僅曰:要堅持下去;老毛等被人剿至着草,æ›°:長征去。與天鬥其樂無窮!班友真係好勁。四十歲才可做特首的規定真的很好!免得眾年青人有太多想法。不要說老毛、孫大炮,就是一個哲古華拉,死時都未到四十,但所做的事就可能是你我做多十世人都做不到的,何解?就係無人同佢講起碼四十歲先至有得上位law,於是佢會想「即係我想做咩春野都得啦」,這樣就出晒事。哲古華拉如是,老毛諸位亦如是。現在你班友唔洗發夢,就天下太平,年青人不用胡思亂想,可專心發達上位去。

  42. Susan – I answered all your questions and they were quite revealing. I think that we unconsciously predict negative outcomes (if that’s the opposite of freedom). Maybe it’s learned behavior that follows us from childhood to adulthood. But it helps to look in a mirror and tell yourself that the only restrictions in your way are the ones you put there!

  43. Google Tom Heneghan then Google Al Gore World Peace Forever.Jane and I are here for you all forever.Right now I am posting in VirginiaI will remain here till Bam Bam leaves the White HouseOh you should read the comments at the youtube ofJeff Fisher Addressees the world part one.

  44. For et flott kjøkken, spesielt gulvet likte jeg godt. Jeg har alt gÃ¥tt pÃ¥ en aprilspøk. Alltid like lettlurt 😉 Ha en fin pÃ¥ske skjønne Heidi.

  45. Great article and right to the point. I am not sure if this is truly the best place to ask but do you guys have any thoughts on where to employ some professional writers? Thanks 🙂

  46. Francesa is a pompous jerk who purports to know everything when it comes to sports. His opinion is always right, so don’t disagree with him! Even when he gets something wrong (as he OFTEN does), he’ll spin his way out of his mistake.
