Universal Music, Def Jam and Shady Records: Video On Demand!


An interesting new service coming out of the States today: Universal Music, the recording giant, has announced the trial of a music video video-on-demand service. The scheme, the mechanics of which are being provided by Gotuit Media, will offer digital cable subscribers on-demand access to music videos from an initial catalogue of a couple of hundred new music clips.

The company will also offer specific sub-label-branded channels offering the same service. The first two will be from hip-hop labels Def Jam and rap star Eminem�s vanity label, Shady Records. Other possible sub-label-branded channels include a Verve Records jazz video channel.

The service will apparently be offered for free, as the service is seen by the record company as an advertising medium for its artists.

Continuing:

Now, there are already a plethora of music video streaming/download sites on the web that either offer free-to-view, undecipherable, three-pixel-wide clips of all the artists whose videos you have no interest in watching with all the audio quality of a Victrola, or subscription fee-for-service four-pixel-wide clips of a few more artists with all the audio quality of a CB radio. (Okay, so the audio and video quality for the latter�s not actually quite that bad, but stick with me for the sake of a more balanced pair of similes). What is interesting and new is the idea of what essentially is a personal DTV music video jukebox.

Although the number of tracks available initially is pretty small, an expansion of the idea - if other labels come on board - could produce an interesting effect vis � vis music video TV stations like MTV. In a world where viewers can programme their own music video jukebox, what place is there for a traditional music video channel (apart from, obviously, producing non-music-video content like The Osbornes and an ever-expanding schedule of Jackass-esque poo-eating juvenilia)?
