  9. 9. Market Overview u  It’s a Great Time to Enter the Internet Broadcasting Market u  Part Two - u  Technology – The stars have finally aligned to create an agnostic platform. u  HTML5 and Java have paved the way for a device agnostic global platform. u  Technology has sufficiently matured to allow for a truly “device agnostic” global platform - with better curation, reduced overhead, and increased profitability. u  Infrastructure and broadband connections continue to be more widely available and at lower costs - allowing for increased audience and lower cost of acquisition. u  Merchandising u  Ability to gather intelligence on users to dynamically change the user experience based on user demographics and analytical data.

Consumers want complete portability of their content. u  It is highly resource and time consuming for our competitors to make changes to legacy infrastructure and code with existing large user bases. u  Our competitors are penalized for change and innovation due to their user’s inherent resistance to change in experience. Every change creates user loss through attrition and conflicts with their primary objective of increasing user retention quarter by quarter.
