  • Wed, 11:22: RT @mgeist: Why Netflix Will Not Mean the End of Canadian TV: my response to @simonhoupt’s Netflix as parasite claim http://t.co/1Z3vsbnAWQ
  • Wed, 11:24: NB: The article @mgeist cites on the growing prevalence of streaming deals is rather less bullish about their broad applicability than him.
  • Wed, 11:26: Also, I think the argument re: Netflix's hypothetical contribution to CanCon funds is that as OTT services gain a bigger revenue share (1/2)
  • Wed, 11:27: the privates' contributions to production will decline accordingly and not be replaced since OTT is largely exempt from funding regime (2/?)
  • Wed, 11:29: In that situation, I'm not sure that citing Netflix's current theoretical contribution against the CMF's funding is the best argument. (3/?)
  • Wed, 11:42: My quibbles aside (and I'm not an expert in bcast policy), @mgeist's rebuttal to @simonhoupt's piece is still an interesting read. (4/5)
  • Wed, 11:43: And again, the whole conversation is one that needs to be had, in the context of an industry in dramatic technology-driven upheaval. (5/6)
  • Wed, 11:45: It needs to be had, it needs to be evidence-based, and it needs to be free of contentless bromides from either direction.
  • Wed, 11:45: Okay, metastasizing multitweet over. Honest. I promise. You can come out now.
