The present and future of post production business and technology

YouTube May Buy NextNew Networks

YouTube May Buy Video Production Company

Mmm, my prediction may be paying off. It might be easier for Google (and Apple) to commission their own work instead of relying on user submissions. At least with internally generated content Google know the quality and “salability” of the content.

As companies like Hulu and Netflix offer more shows and videos online, and as Google tries to lure people to watch YouTube on their televisions through its Google TV software, YouTube is increasingly focused on providing professional content and figuring out how to attract audiences and advertisers to the programming.

Next New Networks, a start-up based in New York, was founded in 2007 to create original Web television shows, and has found success with series like “Barely Political” and “Indy Mogul.”
