To be fair, a vast majority of the stories I have read on the week's big Yahoo! news did the same thing -- they focused on the two original series Yahoo! will debut via Yahoo! Screen in 2015. While that's worth mentioning, it also represents the potentially disappointing part of Marissa Mayer's otherwise world-beating online video strategy.
Fine. Good. Whatever. Spend tons of dough green lighting television inspired by Reed Hastings' smoke and mirrors. Maybe it will work. Maybe it won't. It's probably a risk worth taking if you're a company flush with cash, but if one of these random originals works out it's because you got lucky. Right place. Right time. These Netflix/Amazon/Microsoft/Hulu-like originals at Yahoo! represent the throw orecchiette up against the wall and see if it sticks segment of Mayer's quest for streaming dominance.
Why the media chooses to ignore the sure shot, can't miss portion of this plan, I don't know. Why they opt for regurgitating press releases rather than thinking about what might come next, I don't know.
Live concert streaming -- I don't have say much more other than beginning this summer Yahoo!, in conjunction with Live Nation Entertainment (LVY), will stream one live concert per day on Yahoo! Screen.
