影音串流,這種仗永遠都在打。大咖有 Amazon, Apple, Netflix,小的有 Spotify, KKBOX。玩到 video 量級的,就等於跳了一座山,但這種搶內容授權的競賽本質,是一樣的。

2010年,Netflix 和 Epix(派拉蒙和 MGM 以及 Lions Gate 的合資公司,有多猛你就知道了)簽了張十億美元的獨家授權,2012年到期,所以 Epix 當年就上了 Amazon。

結果,Netflix CCO (Chief Content Officer) 說 “we have decided not to renew our agreement in the US with Epix, the cable network, which means that some high profile movies including Hunger Games: Catching Fire, World War Z and Transformers: Age of Extinction, will expire at the end of September in the US.”

這些網路圈的大朋友們戰得好苦啊。我多年前看透這局,覺得蠻無聊的,引不起我太大興趣。我們做高端小眾的古典音樂,出自於信仰與熱情,更立足於遠勝全球所有串流平台之專業。除此之外,這個領域內容授權的遊戲規則,因著這個業界的獨特性,至終,將由我們來制訂。

簡單講講古典音樂內容之獨特性。90後的年輕人,沒幾個聽過披頭四和貓王。周杰倫和蔡依林,最多也不過能在華人圈裡紅唱一陣子;即便當下,美英俄德認識他們的也沒幾個,再過十來年看搜尋排行,他們恐怕連名字都列不上。但是,巴赫莫札特貝多芬蕭邦柴可夫斯基的傳世作品,從柏林倫敦紐約東京到台北與北京僅僅演奏者更迭,但不論本質或形式,已經歷時數百年,向來恆久不變。
