Press commentary: Alibaba announces SVOD service in China

Many thanks to StreamDaily TV for including me for including me in their article on Alibaba’s move into an online streaming service coming next summer. A copy of the article is here.

Other Alibaba commentary is here. BC press release on Alibaba IPO, and an interview with a European financial magazine. Alibaba’s recent stock performance is here.

In case you aren’t familiar with Alibaba, here’s some information from their web site:


We operate leading online and mobile marketplaces in retail and wholesale trade, as well as cloud computing and other services. We provide technology and services to enable consumers, merchants, and other participants to conduct commerce in our ecosystem.


We aim to build the future infrastructure of commerce. We envision that our customers will meet, work and live at Alibaba, and that we will be a company that lasts at least 102 years.

Meet @ Alibaba
We enable millions of commercial and social interactions among our users, between consumers and merchants, and among businesses every day.

Work @ Alibaba
We empower our customers with the fundamental infrastructure for commerce and data technology, so that they can build businesses and create value that can be shared among our ecosystem participants.

Live @ Alibaba
We strive to expand our products and services to become central to the everyday lives of our customers.

102 Years
For a company that was founded in 1999, lasting at least 102 years means we will have spanned three centuries, an achievement that few companies can claim. Our culture, business models and systems are built to last, so that we can achieve sustainability in the long run.
