The New Media Landscape, ...

... same as the old media landscape.

Part of the ongoing discussion of new distribution channels (and the question of new production models): Microsoft and XBox.

There's precious little details on production models (not surprisingly) but it seems pretty much modeled after the broadcast modes we already know.

"...they could not give straight answers about how the various programs will roll out. Some shows, like JASH in the Box, are only committed for a pilot. Some pilots will remain internal to Microsoft, they said, the way pilots do in regular TV production cycles. Other series will get a test rollout to the Xbox audience to see how they do before a full series commitment. And shows' full seasons could be dropped wholesale into the dashboard for binge-watching, à la Netflix
Additionally, the availability of shows will depend on Xbox users' subscription status. Tellem stated that she would love for all series to not be behind the paywall, but that was unlikely to end up being the case. In special cases, it appears series will also be available beyond the Xbox dashboard: Humans is being developed in partnership with the UK's Channel 4, so it will also air on TV.
Tellem and Levin even hinted that some series may be sponsored, though they did not disclose any partnerships."
