So since we are talking about Post Television this week, I figured I should post an article about television outside of broadcast and cable and even Netflix and Hulu which can be considered channels in its own way. Whether it is Youtube or personal websites, creators post entire series for fans to consume for free, hoping to become noticed, make money from advertisements, or through their own merchandise. In the example I am posting, here is an already established celebrity posting a web series online. In the case of people who create series without relying on star power, their focus is to gain a strong fan viewership so that the show can gain traction, but for some reason, Louis CK, although clearly holding a fanbase, did not have enough viewership to warrant a successful production. Perhaps it is because his program was sold on his own site, and when it is not available on Netflix or free, it is really easy to say, "well I ain't paying for that". Not sure really why his didn't become successful - I mean he did not really market anything - but nonetheless it is very interesting to take note of. ( I am honestly hoping it becomes available for free or on a streaming site I am already paying for). Transactional Video on Demand just seems so excessive, no?
