TV INDUSTRY CONVERGENCE Facebook YouTube rival streams Buffy

I'll gather more on the TV industry (wider context) in this post.

Note: the article linked contains some strong language (it's not necessary to read it).

The basic point is that Facebook is now commissioning original TV series as well as distributing classics, in this case the 7, 5 and 1 season of Buffy, Angel and Firefox, all Joss Whedon produced. (The site takes a hard feminist line on him personally, but the useful point is the accelerating convergence of social media and TV/film/music/games production and distribution.

Up to $100m a year to stream Friends!!!
