PR: LiveTree – the Beginning of the End of the Centralized Entertainment Industry

LiveTree - Decentralized Entertainment IndustryOver the decade, our approach to content has changed drastically. There was a time when VHS was the source of entertainment and household fights revolved around “Who taped over the birthday with the basketball?” Subscription and Video-On-Demand services like Netflix changed things for the better by providing much better access to content. With time, we have come to realize that this digital model of entertainment is full of loopholes. These Internet behemoths are so centralized regarding operation that they have done nothing but replace Hollywood’s age-old opaque practices. With so many technological changes happening around us every other day, it is time to resist this abnormal behavior.
Entertainment has always been a dominant force in shaping the society. Catchphrases and epic scenes from movies or TV shows often become almost natural parts of the cultural fabric as a frame of references and collective cognizance. Our values, our culture, and sometimes even our future is guided by entertainment.
