Mapping The Entertainment Ecosystems: A Brief Revisit

I read the first post and was amazed at the data and how much I didn’t know about the global entertainment ecosystem.

Here is the update: http://www.macstories.net/news/mapping-the-entertainment-ecosystems-a-brief-revisit/

 

Tons of good info in here and just shows that when it comes to global coverage – Apple is killing it. However I wonder over time if their ecosystem or platform will win when clearly they are making their platform somewhat less appealing for independent companies in the entertainment space. One of the big issues I see is how Apple is allowed to build a rental model with iTunes and Apple TV but no one else can use the same plumbing to do a similar thing. Essentially Apple bans all rental type activity from using Apple payments. To me this just stinks and is Apple using their ecosystem to protect their own business model. I wonder if this will ever change.
