One more post today, if only because I’m geeking out over the new Web series Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome, a prequel to the reimagined TV series produced by Syfy and Machinima and broadcast via YouTube. To me, it’s precisely the sort of original programming that makes YT’s custom channels so amazing.
So why you should care about this as an investor? Simple: Every time an amazing new series debuts on YouTube it proves that, like Netflix and Amazon, the platform is every bit as capable as a cable or satellite operator when it comes to distributing great content.
On Attack of the Show, John Barrowman (Doctor Who, Torchwood, Arrow) interviews Michael Learmonth from Ad Age about YouTube’s progress and plans with original programming. Watch the video for more, but for the record, I like this idea today as much as I did a year ago.
