Quality is the biz model for streaming video (Part II)

leave a comment »

Earlier, I had said that that quality was the biz model for streaming video. Here’s the latest development on that front.

YouTube is invading Hulu territory.

The main question is whether the professional content that YouTube will be offering will be made available to international audiences. Hulu is only available to US audiences.

I suspect due to licensing restrictions, the professional content on YouTube will be restricted to American audiences in the way that iTunes and even some audio books in Audible are restricted to American consumers.
