The media and entertainment industry is in the midst of an enormous transition. As delivery of information and entertainment has gone digital, the consumption metaphor has shifted from specific windows at specific times to an on-demand model. Consumers now expect their preferred programming to be available to them at any time and on any device. And, with the advances of wireless, video, and mobile technologies, consumers now have many options to consume content their way. This is both a blessing and a curse for media companies–and entertainment brands in particular. Because customers now have the option of skipping ads, revenue from advertising sources has declined. However, advertising is smarter than ever, thanks to the vast opportunities with machine learning. Many media and entertainment companies will depend heavily on gaining more insights into customers’ demographics and viewing behavior in order to succeed in advertising

Nvidia GeForce Now is bleeding games, is it still worth your time and money?

Article | March 31, 2020

Nvidia GeForce Now hit the streets like a month ago, and in what was a surprise to literally no one, it is the best game streaming service on the market right now. It's not without its flaws, though. For starters, it seems like all kinds of developers are suddenly pulling their games from the service, from AAA heavy hitters like Bethesda to Indie developers like Hinterland Studio, which just yanked its game The Long Dark off of the service. Because GeForce Now lets you play games you "own" something I'll get into in a bit its a little discouraging that game developers can basically cut off access to games you've paid money for. This whole thing throws into question whether or not you should invest your time and money into the platform. There are certainly people who think that game streaming is the future of gaming, but when you can't be guaranteed access to the games you have paid for, it's a future that I don't want to be a part of.

PSVR has been the best-selling VR headset ever since its launch, selling over 5 million units on December 31st, 2020.

How many users do Spotify, Apple Music and other big music streaming services have?

Article | March 31, 2020

Sometimes the statistics around how many people are streaming music – and how many are paying for it – can lead to confusion and misinterpretation. Recently, for example, we’ve seen one story suggesting that Amazon was “on course to overtake Apple Music” based on comparing an Amazon figure from January 2020 with one from Apple that hadn’t been updated since June 2019. Another story claimed that “Pandora has overtaken Apple for second spot” in subscriber rankings, which mistakenly compared the former’s number of active listeners (most of whom don’t pay) to the latter’s paid subscriber count.
