Newest Adventures In Content Distribution

The content distribution business is constantly growing. YouTube just announced that it is creating subscription channels with its partners. These new channels will be a tough new competitor to the traditional cable networks with their expensive bundles.

On the flip side, Apple is running into trouble getting its own deals together with the music companies. The latest rumors is that Apple tried to lowball the music companies by offering 6 cents per 100 streamed songs. This is half the 12.5 cents per 100 songs that Pandora is already paying. Apple has had to offer more in the deals, such as a share of the ad revenues and even a minimum flat payment in case the customer demand is weaker than expected. It is interesting to see how Apple’s usual bargaining strategies don’t work when they are late to enter the market.
