Streaming Might Hurt Single-Player Games, But Survival Games Are Thriving

Online content creators are now, more than ever, the avenue through which many games are able to rise to success – or plummet to failure. Twitch streams and Let’s Plays on YouTube put thousands of new eyeballs on AAA and indie titles alike, serving as testing grounds for prospective new players as well as entertainment in their own right.

While some developers still fear that platforms like Twitch will hurt single-player games, one specific genre has demonstrated how to adapt and thrive in the age of Twitch streams and Let’s Plays: survival games.

Ever since the days of Minecraft, and later DayZ, survival games have found audiences on Twitch and YouTube. Games like Rust and ARK: Survival Evolved maintain steady presences on Twitch and YouTube years after release, and the genre isn’t slowing down either.

The Art of Elysium, or TAOE, has joined forces with James Franco and Vince Jolivette of Bandini Studios to form a streaming entertainment network called Elysium Bandini Studios, that will use the profits from its content, created by actors and artists who are patrons of the Los Angeles-based charity, to service more ill and elderly people in need.

“It’s sort of like a Netflix for charity,” said TAOE founder Jennifer Howell, who began the charity 20 years ago in Los Angeles to bring arts programs to kids in hospitals with serious illnesses. Howell had created a grant called the Tonne Award, named for a late patient, that endowed an emerging filmmaker each year.
With Franco and Jolivette, she created a distribution model for more of this type of content on the digital platform, which goes live on Sunday and will add 30 hours of content each month under a different theme. Artist Shepherd Fairey serves as creative director.

How to figure out which streaming media device to buyPicking a streaming-media player to watch Netflix and Amazon on your TV may seem like a simple process in comparing features and prices, but it’s actually rather difficult. Some companies, like Amazon and Apple, run their own digital video stores, produce shows and sell streaming-media hardware, which can push them to restrict content in ways that might make economic sense for them, but will probably annoy you, the paying customer.

Dish Network Introduces ‘Sling TV’ Video Streaming Service

By Jennifer Saba and Lisa Richwine

Jan 5 (Reuters) – Dish Network Corp on Monday took the wraps off its long-anticipated video streaming service, named Sling TV, targeted to younger consumers who shun pricey cable and satellite subscriptions.

The $ 20 a month service, the first from a distributor, will be available through Internet-connected devices such as Amazon Fire TV, Roku and Google Nexus Player for TVs, tablets, computers and smartphones. It will include television programming and sports events from Walt Disney’s ABC, ESPN and Maker Studios, Time Warner’s TNT, CNN, TBS, Cartoon Network and Adult Swim, and Food Network, HGTV and Travel Channel.

Dish said it will announce a launch date and additional media partners soon.

The satellite TV provider noted that Sling TV is not the same as Sling Media, the Foster City, California, company known for Sling Box devices that let people watch TV across multiple screens.

Sling TV will be closely watched in the media industry as the television ecosystem undergoes a drastic change.

For Dish, it will be a delicate balance: it does not want to encourage more people to dump its more-costly core satellite service for Sling TV.

For the third quarter, Dish said it lost about 12,000 pay-TV subscribers compared with the second quarter. It has about 14 million subscribers, making it the second-largest U.S. satellite TV company.

Dish CEO Joe Clayton said in an interview that Dish knew its satellite TV business was maturing and started thinking about the video streaming service several years ago.

The 18 to 35 year-old target demographic is not buying pay TV, said Clayton, who views Sling TV as complementary.

“We are not only launching a new product category but a new industry,” he said.

Dish is embarking on the new service as it battles over distribution agreements with media companies, including CBS Corp, which launched a brief blackout, Twenty-First Century Fox’s cable news and business networks, which have been pulled from Dish, and Turner Broadcasting.

Controlled by Charlie Ergen, Dish is known as an aggressive company. It launched a failed $ 25.5 billion bid for mobile phone operator Sprint and has often rolled out new technologies, frequently to the ire of its media partners.

Dish’s Auto Hop is one such example. The DVR set-top box, which automatically skips commercials, prompted litigation from CBS, Disney and Fox.

Aereo Cleared To Auction TV Streaming Technology In Bankruptcy Deal

(Reuters) – A bankruptcy court has allowed defunct video streaming company Aereo Inc to auction its TV streaming technology assets, according to court papers published on Friday.

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan ruled on Wednesday that Aereo could sell its assets, after the company reached an agreement with broadcasters over the sale process.

These broadcasters include CBS Corp, Comcast Corp’s NBC, Walt Disney Co’s ABC and Twenty-First Century Fox Inc’s Fox.

Under the agreement, Aereo will allow the broadcasters to attend the auction of the assets and provide them a weekly update on the status of the sale process.

Aereo filed for bankruptcy in November, five months after the U.S. Supreme Court said it violated broadcasters’ copyrights by capturing live and recorded programs on miniature antennas and transmitting them to subscribers for $ 8-$ 12 a month.

That decision effectively closed down New York-based Aereo, whose business model was to offer a less-expensive alternative to cable television.

The case is In re: Aereo Inc, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Southern District of New York, No. 14-13200.

Confessions of a Serial Songwriter: Streaming and Dreaming

2014-09-01-photo.JPG

Oh. My. God. Oh. My. God. Omgid Omigod Omigod. I am so embarrassed. I’m a grown woman and I just got the equivalent of a time out.

This morning, I sat down to address some comments on a blog post of mine, and what did I see? Or not see? At the end of it where there used to be a video of Lea Michele and Cory Monteith singing a song from Glee, there was now a black rectangle with a little red guy inside and a message that said, ‘The YouTube account associated with this video has been terminated due to multiple notifications of copyright infringement.’ Like I said. Omigod.

Horrified, I scrambled to my YouTube account. It was still in tact. Phew. Apparently I was not the infringer. I did not upload that video, but indeed, I borrowed it. And that wasn’t very nice of me. I embedded that naughty uploader’s tainted URL. Or “Earl” as I have come to call it. (Isn’t that so much easier to say than U-R-L?)

Truth is, in the back of my mind I knew I was doing something I wasn’t supposed to do. Me of all people. Me, writer of songs for which I would like to be compensated fairly.

I’ve pretty much been a law-abiding blogger. I’ve been paying $ 15 a piece for licensed Shutterstock images.

Hard copy images have always had a price, (just like recorded music). And when the cyber revolution presented itself and it became possible to use an image without paying for it laws were put into place that prevented that from happening. Photographers have families to feed. They bust their butts to do good work and make a living. I totally get it. But what about songwriters?

The digital marketplace has made fair compensation for use of music problematic.

My songs are streamed over and over again. And my royalty statements reflect a mere pittance of what they used to. There is more and more easy access to music but less and less compensation for the creators of it. As James S. Levine reported in his recent commentary, “The World Has Changed, It’s Time Our Music Licensing System Did Too,” it takes one million streams on Pandora for a songwriter to earn $ 90. Sigh.

Anyway, I did what I often do in the fluster of an internet faux pas (or when I’m embarrassed because of a poorly formatted tweet). I had a chat with my go-to media gal in London. She has some kind of Batphone on which we can communicate affordably. She always has a sober way of explaining online best practices to someone who, up until Jan 1 of this year, didn’t know how to send a friend request or tag a photo.

She explained the difference between previewed images and ones that appear on a host site. She talked to me about Creative Commons and savings packages on Shutterstock. Today I’m a little more image savvy than I was yesterday. Although she’s preaching to the choir. I understand how important it is to make sure the photographer survives. Even the despicable paparazzi who intrude on people’s private space. And private parts. Like the one who took that infamous photo of Britney’s crotch. Even him. (He’s probably streaming one of my songs right now.) If we can protect him, why can’t we protect the livelihood of the musician?

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not asking for the real reasons. I know the facts. I know all about the consent decree, (royalty rate regulation which hasn’t been updated since the 1940’s.) I’ve signed the Songwriters Equity Act and I imagine I’ll be in Washington in the near future marching for the cause. I know about the lobbyists who argue on behalf of digital media companies against balanced reform. I’m not seeking literal answers. I ask out of sheer exasperation. This is strictly emotional. Rhetorical.

If we were able to sort things out so civilly for other vulnerable parties, why can’t we cut through the muck and get it right for the songwriter? We have families too. 🙁
