More media turmoil is brewing …
Sirius XM could change hands and change everything for the delicate balance between radio and satellite radio.
And we’ve also learned Pandora could be sold to a satellite TV company – can you imagine the impact? I mean, right now it’s like we’re almost seeing a new Pandora startup every day – yesterday it was Radical.fm.
Hulu is one of the best answers for TV content that network executives fail to grasp. They should be buying it. Now look what will happen to the TV ecology if Hulu is sold to a satellite TV operator.
This article contains the down low on whether these companies will be dealt and what happens to the rest of us if they are.
1. Is Pandora really worth buying today at a premium when two weeks ago it could have been purchased for a lot less before its IPO. Who would be that crazy or that smart? I name names.
2. Why Pandora’s window of opportunity may be closing. Fans love it and everyone including Clear Channel wants to have their own Pandora. So what has changed?
3. Why buying SiriusXM is a bad deal from the start. And what are the ramifications for radio. Or for you if you’re in the digital music business.
4. You won’t believe who has been kicking Hulu’s tires. Four big media companies. I’ll tell you what their chances are of buying it.
BUT WAIT – THERE’S MORE …
My best thinking on what will happen to you if you’re in radio, records or the digital music business when Hulu, SiriusXM and/or Pandora are sold.
