"If streaming is winning and if Netflix is the most likely winner in streaming, shouldn’t Netflix be a reliable profit generator sometime in the future, as ABC, NBC, and CBS are today in broadcast TV and Comcast is in cable? The stock price says yes. But without a big strategy change, the answer is more likely no.O que é isto senão parte do racional que alicerça postais como "O padrão Mongo"?, a parte tecnológica, a parte das barreiras à entrada e saída. A outra parte é a das tribos. Por exemplo, devo ver cerca de 2 horas de televisão por dia, nunca vi nenhuma das séries da moda, mas sou fã do Morse, do Poirot, da Miss Marple e de outras séries da Fox Crime. Devo pertencer a uma minoria que nunca, mas nunca viu um episódio de Game of Thrones e passa bem.
The broadcast and cable businesses have enormous scale economies that produced profitable oligopolies.
The streaming business, however, has relatively few scale economies.
Thus there is little reason to believe that the proliferation of new streaming entrants — including some very deep-pocketed ones, such as Hulu and Amazon — will be followed by a period of extreme consolidation, as was the case in broadcasting and cable.
Instead, the streaming business is more likely to develop into something that looks a lot like the highly fragmented magazine sector, in which no one dominates and very few now make good money. Without the consolidation that true scale economies inevitably produce, streaming services will need powerfully differentiated value propositions to gain the pricing clout with consumers and purchasing power with content producers to sustain oligopoly-style profits."

Outra base para o padrão Mongo
E volto ainda a "Lessons from the Strategy Crisis at Netflix" agora por causa de um tema completamente diferente:
