The dawn of the internet streaming enterprise?

(Source: Animaxis) Eureka 7 (交響詩篇 エウレカセブン), an anime beginning this weekend in Japan, is slated for online streaming access in the weeks after its broadcast. This isn't the first occasion: there was another anime which allowed streaming access a few weeks/months ago (can't remember which though...); nor is it an East-Asian phenomenon surrounding digital media: Sony is intending to make its most popular movies available for viewing on mobile phones.

I'm not surprised at the move by the Japanese companies Collapse )

On the other hand...regarding digital films for mobile phones - excuse me, but who is going to download something for such a small screen? I didn't even consider using my previous phone to access my email, and it actually featured that capability!! Of all the ideas that those mega-companies think of, this has to be one of the most stupid. However, come to think of it, I shouldn't be surprised if some people actually do make use of it - second-rate media is already accepted by so many people around the world after all.
