A few years ago there was a sea change in entertainment when those pesky upstart cable companies like HBO, Showtime, etc. started sucking the wind out of the traditional networks by producing or distributing high quality content that not only received Emmy nominations, but actually won them. The nineties were a significant time in the world of entertainment delivery and distribution. No longer were the Big 3 the invincible purveyors of quality television programming, but now the new boys in town were honing in on the territory.
A few days ago, another turning point in the world of programming and distribution occurred. Netflix became the first all digital mobile distribution company to garner an Emmy nomination for original programming; in fact not just one nomination, but fourteen.
This is yet another verification of the fact that mobile digital distribution is not just the future, but the now… with a bullet.
