@anoopman Thanks! AVOD (or ad supported media generally) is tough in an era when better propositions for advertisers exist (FB w/targeted buys; Google w/search). I suspect we'll see more segregation of content type by revenue model as a result.
@anoopman Makes sense (arguably necessary) for subs funded services to have exclusivity. Windowing, deficit financing still works for ad-support. Calculus of risk v. reward differ when biz demands collecting attention v. creating a value proposition worth paying for #manytvindustries
@anoopman When Netflix buys a series it pays the full cost of production plus a % that is guaranteed profit for the studio, but buys global rights for 10-15 years, so the studio can't sell elsewhere (cost plus). Different from deficit financing in which studios sell series again and again.
Thread is a great explanation. Also, since Netflix funds through cost plus, there isn’t the same kind of backend that is available through deficit financing. Deals like this are the way to get “Dick Wolf” level money now. But as before, only very few will earn at this level.
