OpenSky.tv: A New Business Model-Content Creation, Curation, Consumption, and Commercialization
OpenSky.tv was founded in 2016 with the objective of getting people back to watching video content on television. The founder wanted all video content to be accessible through an Internet connection on the viewer's television. His company's platform located and brought together programs and videos that were of interest to each viewer, so viewers could have their own personalized video channel. One full year after its launch, OpenSky.tv wanted to focus on the Cantonese market, and then concentrate on Mandarin and English audiences. The founder was wondering what his platform's business model should be. How could he achieve his initial objective of creating a business-to-consumer (B2C) recommendation platform?
