The Franchise Era

Monica Sandler

Edinburgh University Press

Monica Sandler focuses on subscription video on demand services, using the case study of Comcast NBCUniversal’s failed SeeSo platform. Her essay examines how television networks themselves can cultivate a franchise identity for themselves by expanding their brand into emerging formats. The essay questions how old media incumbents like NBC can compete against big data-based entertainment companies like Netflix and Amazon.

Keywords:   Comcast NBCUniversal, SeeSo, Streaming services, Netflix, Amazon, SVOD, Media franchise
