“When majors become minors.”


Platforms – streaming

Over the past 10 years, we have seen a drastic increase in the number of market share that online entertainment platforms have in the industry. But something came to mind the more I started thinking about the shift. What would happen in the event one of these major platforms, if not a few went bankrupt? How could this shake up the market?

the market

When observing the market, an article was written by Tech Crunch back in April of 2017 which put Netflix at the top of the heap as far as audience versus reach. And behind them is Dish Network’s Sling, followed by Hulu, YouTube, Amazon, and then HBO GO. Now, the idea of one of these companies going under could be catastrophic since some have valuation close to, if not over $100 billion. The photo below is of the article diagram of this data from Tech Crunch website.

could it be?

Still, with all the control that some of these platforms have, it could happen. There companies in America far bigger that have went under. So don’t think for one second that the spot of a company is fool proof. It could go under. And that would mean companies who compete, not audiences, scrambling for a position over the market. People are fine, we’ll always find an alternative.

the who

There is no real way to know for a fact who will be the who to go under. That is impossible to find out because it would mean knowing company information. But whoever does, if anyone, you’re talking a wide open market; especially if it’s Netflix, Sling, or Hulu.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
